Time Magazine knew how messed up and disorganized the Kerry Campaign was. Why didn't they do a story on this BEFORE the election? Why didn't any media report this?

If the Bush campaign was in this much turmoil, I guarantee this would have been front page news.


JOHN KERRY constantly squabbled with his difficult and hypochondriac wife, ran a campaign team riven by internal feuding, and repeatedly begged the Republican senator John McCain to become his running-mate, according to a riveting inside account of his doomed presidential bid.

The Massachusetts senator was so obsessed with getting advice from a multitude of rival advisers that one aide confiscated his mobile telephone. His wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, became such a moody distraction that in the closing weeks of the campaign another aide instructed her to stop whispering advice in his ear and back off.

Hmmm, Im not going to shout media bias on this one. perhaps they acted as responsable journalist and decided that they did not want to put forth such a negative piece so close to the election. Others were not so discriminating

It would have been so irresponsible to run this story before the election. I think alot of people speculated the Cahill was running a wuss campaign with no direction, but to have actual coverage of it would have been devastating.

From the article:


Enter James Carville, Bill Clinton’s former strategist. So appalled was he by the chaos inside the campaign, and so desperate to see Mr Bush defeated, that in early September he decided that Miss Cahill had to be ousted, and Joe Lockhart, Mr Clinton’s former spokesman, inserted as manager. When he called a meeting with the pair, he was so worked up, he began to cry, screaming to Miss Cahill: “You’ve got to let him (Mr Lockhart) do it!” Mr Lockhart duly took over, and Mr Clinton’s former campaign team virtually moved in.


Think of Kerry's campaign with Carville and Lockhart at the helm from the beginning. IMO the outcome may have been completely different.

I don't think this article has anything to do with "Time Magazine." The article is copyrighted by "Times Newspapers Ltd.," in the UK. Most of the quotes in the article came from "Newsweek Magazine."

Every bit of the article rings true, based on what we saw in the news media over the course of the campaign.

Contrary to popular opinion on ATS, the American people were paying attention to what the candidates were saying and doing. We are not as easy to fool as we are given credit for.

Underestimating Americans is unwise.

Yet so many people choose to do exactly that. But to do so is to curse oneself to never being able to understand us.

Either way, misunderestimating us won't change who we are.


Edit: Fun Facts To Know And Tell

The article refers to the "Bush re-election 'Strategery Room' (named after a famous Bush malapropism)".

In fact, Bush didn't coin the term "strategery". The word first appeared in a Saturday Night Live sketch featuring Will Ferrell as Dubya, where he used the expression in a mock debate with Al Gore (Darrell Hammond).

Bush has since adopted the term as an inside joke, but he didn't invent the word "strategery". Life imitates art.

You are right about Time Magazine.

But the media knew and didn't report. If it was Bush they would have slaughtered him.

You know what amazes me? Despite the liberally biased media, Michael Moore's movies, MoveOn.org, and pressure from the outside world to conform to "their" standards, Bush still won the election...

Call me paranoid, but I think Kerry was bribed to make his campaign a mess.

For real!

Every election all liberals in this country swarm to attack whatever Republican is running for office. And despite this, Republicans usually win.

Actually, it is precisely because of this that the Republicans usually win. The American public is growing more impatient with the politics of personal attack, especially when no alternate solutions to problems are presented. As proof, the last 10 days of the campaign were run by Kerry attacking Bush by jumping on the issue du jour, which the liberal media were only too happy to serve up. Many voters rejected these tactics.
