Freedom on the March!
Afghanistan citizens, men and women, lined up to vote in an imperfect but otherwise remarkable, historical achievement.
Bush takes credit while press whines!
John Howard has been rewarded mightily by the Australian people for his bold stand alongside President Bush in the War on Terror. Despite the concerted attempts by liberals and even the Kerry campaign, who sent operatives, including Hanoi John's sister, to Australia, to actually threaten the voters there that if they dared re-elect Howard they'd face a terrorist attack.

In debate last night Kerry pledged, incredulously, not to raise taxes while his plan would kick in at adjusted income levels of:
Married filing separately: $80,725
Married filing jointly: $161,450
Head of Household: $147,050
OUCH! Today, during stump speech in Minnesota, Bush called Kerry "Senator Tax-You". No Kidding!

BUSH: He complains about the fact our troops don't have adequate equipment, yet he voted against the $87 billion supplemental I sent to the Congress and then issued one of the most amazing quotes in political history: "I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it."FNC: Debate Transcript & Video
Saddam Hussein was a risk to our country, ma'am. And he was a risk that -- and this is where we just have a difference of opinion.
The truth of that matter is, if you listen carefully, Saddam would still be in power if he were the president of the United States, "And the world would be a lot better off."
GIBSON: And, Senator Kerry, 30 seconds.
KERRY: Not necessarily be in power ...

POLLs remain skewed but neck & neck ... Bush holding steady in battleground states and seems to be maintaining position in critical Gore states of Iowa, WI and Minnesota - watch where Bush go to stump rather than the polls. The campaigns have the best polls and they tell them where to send the candidate. If the battle is taking place on Kerry's turf then it bodes well for the status of the race as we approach the final stretch. The conclusion of this race will provide the final focus and flourish of attention on Senator Hanoi John French Kerry's pathetic record, his 20 year history in the Senate, his decades of opposing peacemakers while propping up the most despotic of the world's dictators and shirking away from the defense of the United States and opposing every major defense initiative since he's been in public office. Yes, fellow citizens, John Kerry is a liberal. He can run but he cannot hide.
Stolen Honor may appear on TV before the election!
