  • Where can I find this video of President Bush last night? (Vanity)

    11/03/2004 9:15:28 AM PST · by mike182d · 24 replies · 824+ views
    I just saw it again on CNN right now, but remember when Bush called all the press into the White House to see how confident they were of how things were going? As they're zooming into President Bush's face, on the end table with the lamp, I could have sworn I saw an icon of the Blessed Mother with the Infant Jesus sitting on the table. I've seen this clip several times on the news, but if anyone can direct me to a video file (or confirm from their own observation), I would greatly appreciate it!

    The other day, the guy on my local radio station mentioned that The Passion of The Christ was the Number One movie in America. ‘So congrats to Mel Gibson,’ he said. ‘And it’ll probably hold on to the Number One slot until the new Starsky & Hutch opens.’ It’s always useful to keep things in proportion. But, in fact, Starsky & Hutch opened and The Passion cleaned its clock. Last weekend, it took in $51.4 million, as against S&H’s $29.05 million. By then, The Passion’s total gross was up around $212 million. Pace my radio guy, mid-Seventies nostalgia is no...
  • Anglosphere's leadership is singing in tune

    Editorial: Anglosphere's leadership is singing in tune IN an analysis of George W. Bush's election victory in the current issue of The Economist, the magazine's acerbic US commentator, "Lexington", warns the Democrats against the self-serving view that the US President won by appealing to base instincts such as fear and hatred. The Republicans "clobbered them on hope". Mr Bush was better than John Kerry at "exuding optimism" and "addressing the aspirations of an aspirational people". This is always the winning strategy in a pro-growth culture such as the US, and shows the Republicans have turned themselves into the "party of...

    Thank goodness for pollster Brad Coker and his Mason-Dixon research organization. Their late polls may rescue us from a wrong-headed interpretation of the 2004 election results. Coker offers an alternative to Warren Mitofsky’s flawed exit-poll-driven conclusion that moral values were the driving force behind this election. Yes, the fact that moral values were more frequently mentioned in this year’s exit poll is significant, but it’s not as significant as it’s being touted to be. Although morality was a plurality winner in the exit poll’s “most important issue” sweepstakes, barely one in five voters (22 percent) said values were the top...

    "THEY are like mules," a particularly cool bishop remarked the other day of progressives in the Catholic church. "They have no heirs." Might this also be true of the deconstructionist Left in politics, with its conceivably sui generis progenitors traceable only back to the counter-cultural sixties and seventies? There's an argument to be made. The re-election of George Bush, an unequivocally combative conservative, and the return of John Howard for a fourth term, suggests climate change in American and Australian politics rather than seasonal variation. After fighting Bush with dedicated unscrupulousness throughout the presidential campaign, The New York Times tacitly...

    WE PICKED IT The Letter predicted George Bush ‘s victory, we said 52-48%, it was 51-48%. We also predicted correctly the Republicans would increase their majority in Congress. Despite sending journalists to America no NZ mainstream media predicted a Republican win. The NZ media gets most of its American news coverage via the British media who have been hostile towards Bush from the start. This is not new. The same media wrote off Ronald Reagan as a “B-grade” actor. The Letter picked a Republican victory because of a fundamental political shift taking place in America. George Bush is the first...

    Where some countries can be congratulated for a violence-free election, the United States may now be congratulated for a litigation-free one. George W. Bush has won another presidential term in one of the most closely fought campaigns in US history. The new mandate is clearer but not much stronger than before, because he had received only the electoral vote and not the popular vote the last time. The question now is where and how the president will take his administration and country over the next four years: still in a cavalier way in yet more unilateral destinations, or in a...

    Inquiries from Americans wanting to move to New Zealand have "exploded" since George W Bush was re-elected president. The Immigration Service's website had 10,300 hits from the United States the day after the election. Usually it gets 2500 hits a day. And the phones of its US marketing directors in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland, Oregon, have been ringing nonstop since the election. Marketing director Don Badman said there had been up to 300 telephone calls and emails a day. "We've been doing this for 11 months and it's been building up to about six to eight calls a...

    Disclaimer: this talkshow has no transcripts available and it was broadcasted entirely in Chinese (Cantonese). I'm summarizing the important points here for Freepers to know what this famous HK talkshow host is saying. Some of the mainpoints in the programme include: On Michael Moore and Osama bin Laden: Michael Moore is either incredibly dumb or an undercover campaigner for Bush. He (along with OBL) has unwittingly helped Bush thinking his pseudo-documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. There was a scene when Bush learned the attacks in New York on 9/11 and he was frozen and pondering. Moore remarked in the film that Bush...

    In the end, it was the sheer preppie courtesy of election night that hit home. When John Kerry defied the logic of the first results and declined to concede the election early yesterday morning, the engines of George W Bush's motorcade were revving and ready to whisk the re-elected President to a public stage to claim victory. But aides told him it would look bad, and might seem "divisive", and perhaps not the sort of thing one Yale man does to another. So Mr Bush held back, and gave his opponent more time to ponder the irrefutable arithmetic of the...

    This is a message for all you Freepers out there! Stop what you are doing and give yourself a pat on the back! We couldn't have done it without everyone's help! We all played a part, whether it be a phone call, a post, a turned voter, a letter to the editor, or a donation. We should all be proud of ourselves and the effort we put in to make sure that our wonderful president, George W. Bush secured a second term! Good job!

    Senator Rick Santorum also told ABC in New York that GOP officials are planning on reviewing the matter closely and if necessary will consider judicial rulings in the matter to prevent fraudulent votes from being counted. Senator Santorum also told ABC News that it appears that GOP turnout in central Pennsylvania is already reaching by mid-day 75% of the total turnout of 2000. Central Pennsylvania is the conservative core of the state and it appears that in the new 1.7 million voters registered by Republicans in the middle of the state that the majority of them will be supporting President...

    This is a Happy Halloween vanity. Those of you who know what I've been through this year will appreciate this in particular. For those who don't know, I'll give you the Reader's Digest version. I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer earlier this year, had surgery to remove the tumor (which was malignant) and two-thirds of my pancreas, the whole of my spleen, and my gall bladder. After being released following that surgery, I wound up back in the hospital eight days later with pneumonia and pleurisy. Ended up having lung surgery to save my life. Following that, my kidneys and...

    10/27/2004 6:26:06 PM PDT · by KMC1 · 129 replies · 6,291+ views
    Depending on the turnout (wink, wink), I am beginning to believe that Kerry will conclude one of the most miserable campaigns for President ever by losing in states he "shouldn't" be early on election night. Today a new poll showed again that President Bush is dead even with Senator Kerry in New Jersey. This is unbelievable. Al Gore walked away with New Jersey early in the evening in 2000. But if Kerry loses it my prediction is for Bush to almost run the board. The reasons why Kerry is doing badly in New Jersey is partly not his own doing but his...

President Bush will speak to a crowd of 12,000 at Joker Marchant Stadium on Saturday morning, and Bush supporters snapped up passes to the event. By the end of the day, the Republican campaign offices were out of tickets.Advance teams for the candidate are in the city briefing GOP dignitaries and local law enforcement officials, and party volunteers are working on the...
