An Essay On The Opposing Views Of Columnists, Beth Quinn And Douglas Cunningham, On The 2004 Presidential Election

458 words - 2 pages

This article shows the opposing views of columnists Beth Quinn and Douglas Cunningham on the 2004 Presidential Election. While Quinn makes very good points supporting Senator John Kerry and the democrats, Cunningham argues those points supporting President George W. Bush and the republicans. Both writers practically use mudslinging to gain the readers' support for each presidential candidate.Quinn's column, Election Primer for Undecideds, endorses Senator Kerry by pointing out the errors of the president's ways. She explains each of the candidates' positions on such things as scientific research, honesty, schools, sex ...view middle of the document...

As good as Quinn's points are, Cunningham's column, Difference of Opinion, undermines her column by making one thing very clear, "Bush is driving both sides." Although Cunningham agrees with her on certain issues such as gaining respect of our allies and having things go more smoothly in Iraq, he does a little mudslinging himself. He mocks Kerry on issues like big business, wealth, and oil drilling. The statement, "Bush is driving both sides," is referring to the fact that the Democrats are only voting against Bush and not for Kerry.I wonder if both these columnists forgot to consider that most republicans are conservative and that most democrats are liberal. Rather than throwing their views in each other's faces, they should take into consideration that each party runs off of an extremely different platform. I feel that this year's election is going to be a very close one. The ratio of Bush-supporters to Bush-haters is very close. I agree mostly with the statements that Quinn said and would be a Kerry-supporter if he stood strong on his views and appeared reliable. So, in conclusion, I find myself leaning more towards Bush. I wish I could have a say in this election.Even though Beth Quinn and Douglas Cunningham disagreed completely on the candidates, they ended their columns the same way they wanted the reader to choose. I found it quite funny that after all the persuasion, all the mudslinging; they'd expect the reader to choose.
