    interesting read about john kerry's hometown

    Discussion started by T=E=A=S=E - Oct 29, 2004

    John F. Kerry's hometown is Lowell Massachusetts. The Lowell Sun, is the 1 local newspaper. This entire area, state, section of the country is
    strongly democrat. John Kerry's hometown newspaper endorsed George W. Bush for President of the United States. I found this hard to believe so I went to the Lowell Sun website to ascertain that this was indeed correct before I sent this out........ It is true.
    If you are a republican I urge you to send this to as many people as you can...... this is definitely a very powerful message. Read it all, hang on each word and sentence and by all means, vote. If you are a democrat, I know you are not going to pass this along. I just want you to read it because in all the messages whether it be from the republicans, Swift Boat Vets, or whoever, none of them ring true so much as this Newspaper endorsement..........

    I just found this the most fascinating thing. Senator Kerry's own
    hometown paper in Massachusetts, a traditional Democratic town, has not only endorsed President Bush, but a ringing endorsement, and quite harsh against Kerry. Read especially the highlighted parts (in red bold).

    Where is the main stream media on this one.... it happened ten days ago and we have read nothing in the papers about it........ considering this you have to agree, the media is left leaning............. especially
    newspapers and network TV news. An endorsement like this should have been front page news in most newspapers..................... I mean, like it is his hometown.

    (below is the article from the paper)

    Lowell Sun

    Endorsement: George W. Bush for president

    Sunday, October 03, 2004 - It's about national security.

    That's the key issue on the minds of Americans planning to vote in the
    Nov. 2 presidential election.

    They must decide whether Republican President George W. Bush or Sen.
    John F. Kerry, a Democrat, can provide the leadership to safeguard
    America from foreign terrorism.

    Americans aren't fools. They know that without safe cities and towns,
    America will lose its greatness. Our cherished freedoms and sacred
    liberties will be diminished, along with our opportunities for economic
    prosperity and our basic pursuit of happiness.

    Our childr en and their children will live vastly different lives if we
    fail to guarantee a future free of turmoil.

    Islamic extremists, both here and abroad, have one purpose: To destroy
    America and halt the spread of democracy and religious tolerance around
    the globe.

    They'd like to be plotting in our streets right now. They'd like to be
    sowing murder and mayhem with suicide bombers and hostage-takings, and
    spreading fear in the heartland and everywher e else. They'd like to be
    wearing us down and bringing our nation to its knees.

    Since the devastating terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, one American
    leader has maintained an unbending resolve to protect our homeland and
    interest against Islamic savages and those foreign governments appeasing
    them.

    That leader is President Bush.

    While out-of-touch U.S. politicians and world leaders have attacked
    President Bush's tactics, they can't question his steely commitment to
    keep America safe.

    In the ashes of ground zero, where nearly 3,000 innocent Americans
    perished, President Bush vowed to find the perpetrators, in domestic
    cells and distant lands, and bring them to justice. He said he will do
    all that is human ly possible and necessary to make certain that
    terrorists never strike again on U.S. soil.

    Can anyone deny that President Bush has not delivered? America the
    terrorists' No. 1 target has recovered from its tragic wounds and
    rebounded. It remains safe to this day.

    What might a lesser leader have done, faced with the daunting task of
    deciding America's course against withering, partisan attacks from
    Democrats, media propagandists, disingenuous U.N. officials and disloyal
    White House operatives selling their souls for profit during a time of
    war?

    A lesser leader might have caved in. President Bush has stood his
    ground.

    In this year's election, the question isn't whether we are safer now
    than we were four years ago. We already know the answer. Sure we are and
    that's because of President Bush. The critical question is: Four years
    from now, will America be safer than it is today?

    In our book, Americans have to place their trust in President Bush. He's
    proven to be as sturdy as a mighty oak when it comes to saying what he
    means, meaning what he says and acting decisively.

    When it comes to the war on terror, President Bush means to keep our
    military strong and our country secure.

    John Kerry, on the other hand, has all the attributes of the shape of
    water when it comes to telling us what he believes and what he'd do for
    America. Like incoming and outgoing tides, Kerry is content to go with
    the flow. In a dangerous world infested with sharks, Kerry would be chum
    at America's expense.

    We in Massachusetts know John Kerry. He got his first taste of politics
    32 years ago in the cities and towns of Greater Lowell.

    In his 20 years in the U.S. Senate, Kerry, a Navy war hero, hasn't risen
    above the rank of seaman for his uninspiring legislative record. He's
    been inconsistent on major issues. First he's for the 1991 Persian Gulf
    War, then he opposes it. First he's for the war in Iraq, then he's
    against it. First he's for a strong U.S. defense, then he votes against
    military weapons programs. First he's for the U.S. Patriot Act, then he
    opposes it.

    Kerry's solution to stop terrorism? He'd go to the U.N. and build a
    consensus. How naive. France's Jacques Chirac, Germany's Gerhard
    Schroeder, U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan and other Iraq oil-for-food
    scam artists don't want America to succeed. They want us brought down to
    their level. And more and more, Kerry sounds just like them. In a recent
    campaign speech, Kerry said America was in the wrong war, in the wrong
    place, at the wrong time.

    No doubt John Kerry sincerely wants to serve his country, but we believe
    he's the wrong man, in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

    Americans should think back three years ago to the smoldering ruins of
    the World Trade Center. There among the mist lay the images and memories
    of fallen firefighters, police, a Catholic chaplain and ordinary working
    citizens moms, dads, sons, daughters.

    President Bush, through heartfelt tears, told us never to forget the
    twisted carnage and the massacre of the innocents. Yet some of us are
    forgetting.

    President Bush told us the attacks must never happen again. Yet some of
    us are wavering because of the brave sacrifice of soldiers that our
    nation's security demands.

    Well, President Bush hasn't forgotten. Nor has he lost the courage and
    conviction to do what is right for America.

    We know if there is one thing the enemy fears above all else, it is that
    George Bush's iron will is stronger than his iron won't.

    The Sun proudly endorses the re -election of President George W. Bush

    I'm sure there's a lot of people in Texas who are against Bush,
    so it's not supprising to see some New englanders are against Kerry.

    Who cares. The Crawford, Texas paper endorsed *Kerry. Newspaper endorsements don't mean jack shit anymore.

    *edit - I originally wrote "Bush" instead of "Kerry."

    yes...i like the part......

    Fuck that...yeah we should think about this statement....let us all wonder why we have shifted almost all military activity away from dismantling al-queda to invading and conquering Iraq and it's "vast supply of wealth and power"...if Bush was still thinking about sept 11 maybe we might still be in afganistan finishing the job. that article is bullshit. when will people understand that Iraq had no connection to 9/11....saddam was not a threat and certainly not a terrorist threat in regards to the U.S. .....but whatever if articles like this make republicans feel good about murdering 100,000 iraqis then so be it...I'm just glad i'm not in support of a war that has killed 100 iraqis to every one U.S. soldier...At least we have American corporations making billions of dollars off of this war...thank god Cheney and Rumsfeld have helped out all thier friends make some extra dough....I just can't imagine where we might be today if we hadn't gone after those "evil-doers" in Iraq....we'd probably all be dead from another terrorist attack by Saddam Hussein....

    Commentary ~ September 29, 2004: George Bush yesterday received a ringing rejection from the newspaper in his home town of Crawford, Texas when the paper endorsed John Kerry for President.

    The weekly paper, called The Lone Star Iconoclast, criticized Bush's handling of the war in Iraq and for turning budget surpluses into record deficits. The editorial also criticized Bush's proposals on Social Security and Medicare.

    In 2000, the newspaper endorsed Mr. Bush for President. This time around the paper’s editor Leon Smith said there is a concern in the small town that Americans were 'duped' into believing Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

    "The publishers of the Iconoclast endorsed Bush four years ago, based on the things he promised, not on this smoke-screened agenda," said yesterday's editorial. "Today, we are endorsing his opponent, John Kerry."

    Smith added that "We think the country is not being led in the right way, on domestic and foreign issues, on stem cell research and Iraq."

    Smith told 1200 WOAI of San Antonio that it was the most difficult decision he has ever made. “We just believe that John Kerry has what it takes to move the country in a different direction, and move the country back and bring back the dignity that this country deserves," he said.

    Smith says he knows most of Crawford's residents are Bush supporters. However, he urged "Texans not to rate the candidate by his hometown or even his political party, but instead by where he intends to take the country."

    "If we lose subscriptions we lose them, if they put us under they put us under," Smith said. "But sometimes you have to stand up for what youbelieve is right."

    so yeah tease, right back at ya. GWB's hometown newspaper endorsed kerry. kind of ironic how this all plays out, each canidates newspaper endorses the opponent?
