G.W.Bush Hometown newspaper endorses Kerry

This same paper endorsed Bush for President in 2000, some people do learn by their mistakes!

Bush's Hometown Newspaper Endorses Kerry

CRAWFORD, Texas (Reuters) - The newspaper in President Bush's adopted hometown of Crawford threw its support on Tuesday behind Bush's Democratic rival, Sen. John Kerry. The weekly 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. "The publishers of The Iconoclast endorsed Bush four years ago, based on the things he promised, not on this smoke-screened agenda," the newspaper said in its editorial. "Today, we are endorsing his opponent, John Kerry." It 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." Bush spends many of his weekends and holidays at his Crawford, Texas, ranch. The Iconoclast's publisher and editor-in-chief, W. Leon Smith, said the newspaper is sent to Bush's ranch each week. "But I don't know if he reads it," Smith said. The Kerry campaign welcomed the endorsement in an email to reporters.

So it is only 435. The iconoclast just reminds me of one of those papers that come out about once a week for free, and hardly ever gets read. Doesn't mean anything to me at all.
