Lowell Sun endorses Bush

The Lowell Sun has endorsed President Bush for re-election saying that, among other things, "Americans aren't fools." The press covered the endorsing of Kerry by a Crawford Texas newspaper--lets see how much air-play this gets. Read the whole article here:

So everyone who votes for Kerry is a fool?

I disagree with media outlets endorsing political candidates unless they are official sources from the candidate or their party. It raises the notion of future bias.

Well there you go. It's anti-Kerryism rather than pro-Bushism.

The Crawford paper endorsed Bush in 2000.

yes,

and it is repugnant.



Dragging around the dead of 911 for political gain is beneath contempt.


This administration is the lowest

Planning the convention at ground zero

and changing it to the latest date to coincide with 9-11 shows to what they will stoop.

You are right I am in a crutial swing state. I will be able to tell my grandchildren that I helped to protect this country by keeping George Bush in office. The point of this thread is not if you agree with the article or not--if you are voting for Kerry you won't--and I could give a crap what a Mass. paper thinks about this election. I'm just betting you won't see anywhere near the coverage for this that you got from the Crawford paper thing.

ironically that is not the case.

If we had a President in the Whitehouse when he got the Daily Briefing that said "Binladen determined to attack inside the U.S." Instead he stayed on his ranch and fell off his trail bike the month before 9-11.

What difference does that make? I'm sure that the Lowell Sun endorsed Kerry for something sometime. He has been in office for 20 years.

I think that's because the Crawford paper was Bush's "home" newspaper, that's why it was newsworthy.
