Lynn Swann gets campaign support from Bush
African American Political Pundit says: The headlines read "Lynn Swann, Happy to Be on the President's Team". When a read those headlines I said, "this guy Swann has got to be one real idiot" but I guess that's why he is down by 20 percentage points. You see Lynn Swann is politically stupid enough to think the President has coat tails. Lynn Swann must be placing his head in the dame sand. Has he not read the polls? High gasoline prices, flat wages, the Bush war in Iraq, all have left most Americans pissed off if not anxious.
Enter in-experienced Swann, a Republican, who is facing a 20-point deficit and a huge fundraising gap in his race against incumbent and popular Pennsylvania Gov. Edward G. Rendell. A recent Poll indicates Swann Gained No Ground on Rendell the 2006 Pennsylvania Governor Poll shows Rendell holding big lead in race for governor.
Wth all the polls showing he is done like a Thanksgiving "turkey"Lynn Swann says, I'm Happy to be on the President's team". Although Bush has Helped Swann Raise Campaign Cash.
Donors paid $10,000 per person or couple for a private reception and photo opportunity with the president, and $650 a person or $1,000 for a couple for a general reception. Swann campaign spokesman Leonardo Alcivar said the event raised about $700,000.
Most of the donors probably know Swann has no chance of winning the election, they just wanted have a photo op with Bush. I guess it will be a swann song come November for Mr. Swann during his concession speech. Hopefully one of Bush's speech writers are preparing now. Candidly, Swann seems like a nice guy, he just should have stayed out of politics and coached football.
He was a better football player than a politican.
