This Presidential Race Has Never Been Neck and Neck By Debbie Daniel October 27, 2004
How about defining it as being cut off at the knees . . . and then told to run? How about hands tied behind the back . . . and then expected to lead the nation? Now I know why George Bush calls on the name of Jesus.
George Bush has been brought to his knees since Al Gore called him back on election night 2000 to say, "I've changed my mind, I'm not conceding the race." And from that point on . . . we've never been more divisive.
It was definitely a battle over control, and the Democrats were not about to give it up; even though the Florida recounts - still to this day - confirm that George Bush won. The "Dems" refuse to believe it, thus the nation is, and will forever be, at the mercy of this self-inflicted "disenfranchised delusional thinking." That's where we are.
Let's listen to some real statesman-like behavior with the liberal vice-presidential candidate, John Edwards, saying, "You've lost your mind if you vote for George Bush" . . . and Senator Joe Biden calling the President of the United States "Brain Dead."
It's alright for these leaders to make such tasteless inferences toward a sitting president, but when the president was on the campaign stump and said that John Kerry was not prepared and ill-equipped to be Commander-in-Chief, Tim Russert of NBC's Meet the Press jumped on it saying, "Is that Fair? Why Mr. Kerry is a decorated war hero and has served in the Senate for 20 years."
When I heard Mr. Russert make such a defiant defense of the Senator, I knew clearly what our President was up against. It's so blatant!
Mr. Russert, is it fair that John Kerry put the lives of U.S. prisoners of war in peril by announcing to the Viet Cong they were murderers? Oh, I won't even go there.
George Bush did not divide this country . . . it has been a calculated effort on the part of liberals and the mainstream media who have incited division. It's "deliberate division" . . . well thought-out and executed. Think about it. "Come hail or high water," they will not work with George Bush. They're making sure to cut the wedge between us even deeper.
It's a division that has no recourse. If Abraham Lincoln's legacy was that he saved the nation in a time of civil war while invoking the name of God many times . . . how do you do it with an "un-civil" nation who refuses to hear God's name mentioned in public?
We may get a handle on terrorism, and we may conquer brutal dictators, but we may never again know a life of civility once enjoyed, embraced, lived and loved to its fullest in this land we hold so dear.
We have freedom of speech, but even that freedom will soon become our bondage. . . just wait and see.
George Bush has been brought to his knees on many occasions: by one, Dan Rather of CBS, who willingly sought to topple this President single-handedly by presenting forged papers against him; by Ted Koppel of ABC, definitely against the President, determined to defend the testimony of a group of communists in North Vietnam who dispute the words of 254 of our finest American veterans - and Mr. Koppel wants us to believe the communists; by Hollywood with the likes of Matt Damon who would give millions of dollars to get Bush out of office; by Broadway who produced a play entitled "How to Assassinate the President;" and on and on it goes as Mr. Bush is called murderer, liar, cheat, an abysmal failure; but don't dare call Mr. Kerry "ill-equipped." And Tim Russert questions fairness?
And then to really confuse things, along comes John Kerry who decides he wants to be just like George . . . yes, George W. Bush. It almost sounds and feels like the "I want to be like Mike" commercials. He wants to be like George!
Why just last week John "FAITH" Kerry found religion like never before. Does George Bush's faith inspire him, or is he just covering all his bases?
He has said over and over throughout the campaign that a person's faith is private and personal, but he decided to share it with the world. Hallelujah! The man has finally decided he did want to share his faith before he didn't want to share it.
Actually, it's heartening that he does want to share his faith, but he was just a bit more conspicuous with it, especially after the Democrats have "damned" the President for "acting like the Pope" and "wearing his religion on his sleeve."
Ah, but when John Kerry wants to share his faith, we all listen.
His message was quite inspiring: "Everything you do in life is part of your faith . . . I grew up a Catholic . . . I was an altar boy. I will bring my faith with me to the White House and it will guide me," said Mr. Kerry.
Thanks for sharing, John.
Mr. Bush has been labeled a "lone voice in the wilderness." He's been accused of creating a division, a diversion, a disenfranchisement . . . let's see, what else can be blamed on him?
I believe the polls are starting to show that the American people have caught on to this "liberal lunacy."
As we see Mr. Bush brought to his knees by all these opposing groups - just note that he continues to bow his head in reverence while on them. George Bush has told us: "I'm a patient man."
So, it's not "neck & neck" - it is a "lone voice" crying out for God to protect this nation, while an "Army of Americans" have their whips out everyday to beat him down.
But even when brought to his knees with his hands tied behind his back, and I'm sure a threat on his life every single day . . . he's still in the lead. Now that's miraculous!
For all of you who find it abhorrent that I continue to speak of George Bush's faith and chastise me for doing so . . . I say: "You've missed something very special in the strength of this man. You've missed more by not experiencing the source of his strength.
And lastly: I wish for you God's richest blessings on your life. God bless us all as we move forward to choose a man to lead us.
May your choice be God's choice at such a time as this . . . I can't imagine it any other way.

If this turns into a Bush landslide, we all got snookered by the MSM ONE LAST TIME!!
Amen! All we have to do is to stand up and vote the ba$tards out!!!!
amen to this whole article
Biden really surprised me with that comment....NOT that he was low enuff to say it, but HE had brain surgery right after he was caught lying .. I'd sure be worried about that if I were him......shameful SOB
What a great find! Wish I could express it like this writer did! Thanks so much for this terrific post!
I wish people would understand that the pollsters are fooling around with the internals to make the race look closer then it is. I just can't believe that many people will vote to support Dufus. We need to take down the MSM after the election. We can never allow them to try to destroy a President again.
I believe the division actually started under Clinton. Clinton's perjury and obstruction of justice - and subsequently being called on it with an impeachment - divided this country. One half believing he shouldn't be allowed to get away with it, the other half believing he should've gotten a free pass. The division has been hardcore ever since.
Absolutely....best piece I have read on FR...thanks for sharing! I don't know how Bush is doing it....but I think the citizens of America see his tolerance, admire his patience and will reward him and ourselves Nov. 2nd
Thank you for this. It's sickening and true. God Bless George for trying so hard and God help us all if this person that I can't even find a word to describe is elected. I have never in my life felt the hatred in my heart that I feel today towards every single democrat in power and the media.
Thanks for that link. Polls were invented for the purpose of propaganda, and I think this proves it works eh?
Re#9 Agreed. Also, rich v. poor, black v. white GOP etc. Projection by the rats and presstitutes. It has worked, until now....
You are dead-on.
Thank you so much for posting this. It will be my prayer basis for tomorrow's prayer time. Inspiring.
We need to take down the MSM after the election. We can never allow them to try to destroy a President again.
You have voiced (or written) my firm belief. But HOW?
His faith is what makes our President Bush the man he is. I trust this good man and his faith with my life and the life of my family everyday. I also pray for him.
Excellent analysis. The Dems started a war when Gore retracted his concession and the lamestream purposefully colludes with the notion that Bush 'lost' ....
