The Face of Fear (Bush2004 website)
Slate has what they claim to be a screenshot of the soon to be public Bush reelection website. It sure looks real to me, and in true W Bush fashion it scares me. Not the usual fear he likes to sow though. Scares me because its good, and it show just how well his team understands how to sell. Now the election is more then a year away, but this site just puts all the Dems to major shame. Its slick, uplifting and pushes just the right buttons, repeatedly. In true Bush form its also highly misleading. Scary shit.
"Keep America strong"
"President's tax relief helps working families, creates jobs"
"President signs jobs and growth act"
"Do you support a jobs and growth plan that gives taxpayers and average of $1,126 or more a year?"
"Do you stand by our President?"
No fucking wonder the Republicans are confident, for all their failures they have the selling game down pat. The Democrats need to step up hard and get their shiznit together. They have time, but not much of it... And they need to remember what sells to the left might not sell to the middle.Posted by Abe at June 25, 2003 07:49 PM
