    Alas - testament to the strong influence that the liberal media still holds to form opinons with the clueless public.

    You would think that people can judge for themselves and their own wallets how well the economy is actually doing.

    This does confound me???

    It also confounds me why Bush and the Republicans are not shouting out the successes of the tax cuts. Are they so sure of themselves that they can ignore politics or perhaps they don't care who succeeds Bush?

    Maybe they don't/do want us to go to something like the Fair Tax proposal that is now before Congress - supposedly that is a "tax cut" that would really boost our economy?

    :confused:

    that does more than confuse me...it annoys me to death :finger: The Republicans never seem to be as aggressive as the Democrats when it comes to PR.

    I agree. IMO, as much as anything else, it is partly what cost George I a second term. I remember I kept thinking, "Is this guy going to run for his office, or what?"

    My best guess would be it has a lot to do with the "taking the higher road" mentality.

    Some things just NEED to be pointed out.

    Yes, indeed! The RNC needs to take some of their millions of dollars and set up an office to refute all that negativity constantly appearing in the press. President Bush's current poll numbers would seem to indicate that the other side of the story needs to be gotten out so the public can make an informed decision.

    You know it's funny you say that, I worked on that campaign and I can tell you that privately our exact words were "it seems Bush doesn't care if he wins or not".
    There was no fire in him.
