Play this on the radio...

a pro-school voucher group supportive of Bush is running ads on the radio critizing Kerry.

The ads aren't endorsed by Bush, and a spokesman basically critizes them for not being positive enough. Still, it looks like some conservatives are following Jason Riley's advice in the WSJ.

Considering that Blacks vote overwellmingly Democrat, and Dems count on that support, any votes that go to Bush are a win. Ignoring the fact that I think many of Bush's policies benefit middle class people of all races, including Blacks, competition is always a good thing, in political parties as well as business.

The Boston Globe report contains a few interesting statements:

It quotes a Philly dem who says think you'd be hard-pressed to find a political analyst of any note who doesn't think Bush is in a lot of trouble," said Fattah, pointing to a BET/CBS poll from three weeks ago that showed Kerry leading Bush 8-1 among black voters.

That seems like a positive, considering this article
says this: Eight percent of African Americans voted for Bush in 2000 -- the worst showing among black voters by a Republican since Barry Goldwater in 1964. Though Bush has one of the most diverse cabinets in history, national polls suggest that only about 6 percent of black voters will support him in November. If Bush is getting 12% of Black votes, that's a huge increase from other estimates and from the past.

The Globe also says that Bush "snubbed" the NAACP by not speaking at their convention. Gee, I wonder why that would be when the NAACP runs such suppportive ads for Bush.

It also doesn't mention Bush's excellent speech to the Urban League.
