    FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) -- Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday that Sen. John Kerry's first response to Osama bin Laden's new videotape was to take a poll to find out what he should say about it.

    A spokesman for Kerry's campaign did not deny polling on the bin Laden videotape . . .

    "The thing that I find amazing about it is that John Kerry's first response was to go conduct a poll," Cheney told supporters in Iowa. "He went into the field ... to find out what he should say about this tape of Osama bin Laden."

    "It's as though he doesn't know what he believes until he has to go and check the polls, his finger in the air, to see which way the wind is blowing and then he'll make a decision," said the vice president, who offered no evidence to back up his claim. "George Bush doesn't need a poll to know what he believes, especially about Osama bin Laden."

    He should have just called up his buddies. Remember, they knew right where Osama was and had them in their sights until Bush came along . . . :rolleyes:

    Officials said that in the 18-minute long tape — of which only six minutes were aired on the al-Jazeera Arab television network in the Middle East on Friday — bin Laden bemoans the recent democratic elections in Afghanistan and the lack of violence involved with it.

    On the tape, bin Laden also says his terror organization has been hurt by the U.S. military's unrelenting manhunt for him and his cohorts on the Afghan-Pakistani border.

    A portion of the left-out footage includes a tirade aimed at President Bush and his father, former President George H.W. Bush, claiming the war in Iraq is purely over oil.

    The tape also sparked some concern that an attack aimed at disrupting Tuesday's election may be planned.

    That would raise Bush's poll numbers.

    I saw Dick Chaney at the Nazareth High School in Pennsylvania just before he flew to Hawaii. I'm glad we have him as our V.P. of the USA. Hundreds of people were turned away from the auditorium.

    He cracked a joke. He said, 'We have a saying in Wyoming. You can put lipstick on a pig but at the end of the day it still is a pig.' He said that we will take Pennsylvania and there is a chance that we also will win in Massachusetts.

    I hope we can give our electoral votes to our seated President of the United States.

    He arrived in a black limo and Route 22 a main artery was tied up until his plane left Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton International Airport.

    The Democrats are strong in the urban centers like Philadelphia and on the northern tier of Pennsylvania. There are a lot of Irish Catholics who always have voted Democratic and that is why President Bush has flew into this area of Scranton several times.

    I visited my father-in-laws Italian Catholic Church this morning and they had patriotic literature and the priest talked about their moral responsibility to vote against the candidate who believes in 'partial birth abortions.' Sometimes Catholics put us Protestants to shame on some vital subjects like this one. Another is they have a deep reverence for God before their worship service, along with respect toward the man of God called the clergy.

    Anyway, I am not sure that Pennsylvania will go in Bush's electoral column, though I volunteered a couple of days calling up the Christian and Republican base. God's will will be done.

    Berrian, Th.D.

    The lad has been quiet for a long time and suddenly appears and offers us a deal at election time. Curiouser and curiouser. Hmm, if I thought that such a deal might cause the lad kicking my tail to lose it would be a good time to speak. It actually makes me wonder if the French or others have him protected somewhere. My Democratic coworker suggested that "W" had him contained and would produce him right before the election but maybe the situation is that he couldn't be found for other political reasons. After all, "W"'s opposition, foreign and domestic, has stonewalled everything else the last four years. What's one more thing? Speculation works both ways. Whatever the reasons, Osama has surfaced to cast his vote. What will America respond to him? Will we show weakness or strength?

    Anyone that thinks these lads can be negotiated with has to have severe damage to the logic centers of their brains. If the French and Osama want Bush out that confirms that Bush is the man we need. May God grant the majority of Americans to think the same on Tuesday or we will suffer worse than terrorist attacks. We will be one more step closer to Communism and the judgment of God. "W" is no messiah but the trip to Hell we are taking as a nation might at least be slowed down for another four years whereas if he loses we might only be one bullet train stop from the gates and grates.

    May God show us mercy.
