P. Diddy says he got off on the wrong foot when it came to his political endeavors in 2004. If he could do things over again, he wouldn't have yelled for folks to get George W. Bush's "ass out of office."Now I don't think I would be out of line to say that the problem wasn't with part of the campaign. Rather it started when he first entered politics with the absolutely stupid campaign slogan of "Vote or Die".
I think in 30 years, when he has once again changed his name to something like P - Eee Dee (for which he is taking Lavetra!) he will look back and realize that not only was it a stupid slogan, but that the more he hyped his Vote or Die campaign the more people voted for President Bush - this is one of those Moral/Value issues. The Dem's are trying to make this all a gay issue - but I think the it is more of the rejection of the Hollywood values and a reaffirmation of American Values (see what I said here)
Americans proved what I had said in 1992 - Clinton and the Dems are like my alcoholic Uncle Bill. You might let him watch your house but your sure as hell aren't going to give him the keys to the liquor cabinet! When you are in the middle of the greatest struggle in our generation we need to trust our President to do what is right for America. To support our troops and not stab them in the back when they return. The defeat of Kerry could be the final battle of Vietnam. America could finally heal that wound and put to rest the left's Vietnam hatred of our military. Somehow the way the Dem's have clung to the likes of the Lie-N-Hype Moore-on's I doubt it.
DANEgerous has this great analysis of why the left doesn't get it. The NY Times is the perfect example of a too nuanced outlook on life. I think this is important to note! There has been a drop in crime that has corresponded directly with our increased willingness to punish criminals!!! DUH, but they don't get it.The headline:
Anyone remember hearing this wonderful little story from any of the MSM during the campaign?
Despite Drop in Crime, an Increase in Inmates
Certainly the drop in crime rates is directly associated with keeping criminals locked up.
I'm all for clearing out non-violent lawbreakers who are locked up for victimless crimes... but how hard do you have to try to push the agenda.
Here is the real headline... the one the idiots at the NYTimes simply won't print:
Getting Tough on Crime reduces Crime
Historian Douglas Brinkley, author of a wartime biography of Kerry, cautioned that Kerry’s diary included mention of a meeting with some North Vietnamese terrorists in Paris. Edwards was flabbergasted. “Let me get this straight,” the senator said. “He met with terrorists? Oh, that’s good.”Newsweek has it now that the election is over!
Tim Blair has this prespective on the election:
BIGGER THAN BRITAIN
• Number of people who voted for Bush: 59,651,262
• Number of people who live in Britain: 59,600,000
• Number of dentists in Britain: 31,600
