How Should You Vote - Anti-Kerry Or Anti-Bush?

Share Article

What makes this presidential election distinctly different from the rest? As two opinion pieces on the upcoming in the 1st Anniversary edition of the magazine News Informant makes clear, it’s not about whom people are voting for, but whom they are voting against. The Anti-Kerry faction, a.k.a. those supporting George W. Bush, question John Kerry’s ability to defend the United States against enemy attacks and his commitment to military action in Iraq. In contrast, the Anti-Bush faction, a.k.a. those supporting John Kerry, question George W. Bush’s wisdom in invading Iraq and his ability to run the economy.

PRWEB) October 28, 2004 -- An article entitled “Pro-Bush/Pro-Kerry: Side-By-Side Opinions About Who Should Be Elected” in the October 25, 2004 issue of the weekly web magazine News Informant presents a two-sided commentary on the impending election, with critical views on the issues from each side. According to News Informant editor Bernard Perlstein, “One thing became apparent as we were researching this article -- no one appears so much to want either George W. Bush or John Kerry as President.” “Rather than voting for the candidate people would like to be President of the U.S., people are voting against the candidate they do not want to be President,” he added.

The two combined opinion pieces in the News Informant article offer opinions from both political sides on issues including:

·National Security



·The Budget Deficit, and

·The War in Iraq

“Our news articles are intended to be balanced,” Perlstein explained. “Given that the upcoming election is expected to be close, the date is near, and the current issue of our magazine is our 1st Anniversary edition, we wanted to offer voters some added guidance through these opinion pieces on the election. But we still wanted to achieve balance through two different views.”

Asked whom he thought would win the election, Perlstein quipped, “Apparently it will be whichever candidate the voters dislike less.”
