    So you can't watch Cheney speak unless you are voting for him? What's the point? Can an undecided voter or a barely Kerry voter watch him speak and form an opinion? Seems ridiculous and counterproductive to me, but if that's how Bush/Cheney want to reach out...

    Kinda reminds one of what the DNC did to bloggers they issued credential for and then rescinded, doesn't it? :bat:

    I do not see the fact that they are limiting access only to supporters. That way hecklers are not present. A rally is not designed to "reach out". it is to "rally" supporters.

    Why are you trying to make an issue where there is none?

    It is not different than the rally that was held over the weekend with McAluffe and the rest wherein media was not allowed.

    Why is he bothering to speak to people who are already voting for him? Is he scared of having a heckler in the crowd? Is he paranoid? Is this how the GOP wishes to mislead the American public by surrounding their candidates with sworn sycophants for photo-ops?

    That's a real cross-section of the "mainstream"?

    Bill Clinton did the same thing at his infamous town hall frauds. If you wanted to ask a question you had to submit it in writing beforehand and then it was either approved or disapproved so Bill would not have to answer tough questions. He made it sem like he was answering random questions when in reality it was all scripted.

    So I suppose people you don't like, don't like you should be allowed to force their way into your home?

    You are so in left field...anyone, anywhere can put whatever restrictions they want on their entrance requirements. If they can charge $10,000 a plate so be it, let them charge an entrance pledge.

    I didn't have a problem with Kerry/Edwards sending home the bush bloggers. Why would I? Their party!
