However, the best demonstration of 80-20's effectiveness emerged on 8/12. After 80-20's Exec. Comm. decided that it would express its displeasure publicly with the lack of response from the Bush camp, it sent to its 1.1 million subscribers a mass email entitled "Bush & Elaine Chao Don't Care About AsAms." Two days later, a prominent national conservative weekly magazine that is well-identified with the Republican Party, The National Review, reacted.
On 8/12, the magazine carried a 1500 word article devoted ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY TO 80-20. Its title is "If You're API and You Know It...vote Democratic?" Quoting 80-20 extensively, it hinted that 80-20 was a front for the Democratic Party. The article predicts that 80-20 will not be able to deliver 80-20 to Kerry, but might at best deliver 60-40. Go
80-20 is NOT a front for anyone. However, IF 80-20 endorses Kerry, though it has NOT, it shall deliver 80 to 20 for Kerry! If Bush wants our votes, he'll have to deliver two BIG ITEMS: 1) enforce Exec. Order 11246 for Asian Ams immediately, and 2) ease Congressman
Howard Coble out of the chairmanship of House Subcomm. On Homeland Security. 80-20 helps those who help AsAm's legitimate aspirations. 80-20 is always true to its words.
