Feelin' good

It's still early in the season and there's a lot of interstate left before that first Tuesday in November, but I've really got a great feeling so far. At the beginning of August, I thought Republicans were SOL. But after this convention, where virtually all of the primetime speakers have hit home runs (Laura Bush excepted - I got bored and turned her off), and Kerry's campaign has started shaking up their staff, I'm really feeling good.

Also, Bush hasn't even begun to hammer Kerry on the issues yet. He's established Kerry as a flip-flopper, what with his commercials, and there are serious questions about the Vietnam stuff, thanks to the Swifties, but the issue of Kerry's liberal votes hasn't even begun to manifest itself in the campaign. Zell touched on some of those votes last night, so maybe the dam has started to break.

I've been saying virtually the exact same thing the last few weeks. The fact that Bush had pulled ahead in many polls prior to the RNC was very encouraging considering the fact that his campaign had not even really started talking about Kerry's 19-year record in the Senate--a record that Kerry is clearly ashamed of, evidenced by his opting to base his campaign on 4 months of service in a war he denounced over 19 years of public service in the U.S. Senate. That decision alone should tell you all you need to know about his record in the Senate.

Exactly, Mitch. The campaign was occupied with the Swifties for 3/4 of August, and only now are the issues (and the incriminating votes on the issues) starting to come out. It was a rough August for the Dems, and I don't think September will be a whole lot better.

Not to mention that the Swifties have plans to continue giving it to Kerry, Kobe style.
