I wonder if Bush will be as radical given another 'weak mandate'?

As I write this it looks like Ohio is Bush's as well as the election...

It virtually came down to 1 state, was a very close election..

I wonder if the next 4 years will see Bush being as radical in his policies on such a weak mandate as his first term.

I pity democrat Americans and I fear for the world.

I wonder what the reaction is gonna be when the next terrorist attack occurs on US soil.. I wonder if the Republicans will still beleive that their hero is the man to protect them.

I sure as hell wont have as much sympathy for America next time they are attacked. Bush winning the election basically says to the world that the american people approve of Bush's pre-emptive, go it alone and conquer anyone approach to solving conflict - when that attitude comes back to haunt americans, republicans will only have themselves to blame for endorsing a madman.

Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.

he'll be even worse, bcuz now he doesnt have to worry about facing another election.

Whoever runs for the Repubs in '08 will have to pay the consequences, but Bush himself has got a blank check now.

That's really not fair. Not everybody who ends up getting killed in such things supports Bush, and even those who do don't deserve to die because of it.

I would have liked to see Kerry win too, but hey, shit happens. That's no reason to say something like this.

Maybe we can impeach him or something. He is soo dumb. A fifth grader would have a higher I.Q. than he would, and he is representing the U.S. I think he will lead to the demise of the US seriously. He showed his true colors in the debate, by how stupid he behaved and his responses were, and people still vote for him.

Blank check to do whatever he wants to do, and yes that draft will be re-instated. I would like to see all those who voted for him drafted.

Bush's victory as you have pointed means the triumph of the politics of fear, the victory of the pre-emptive wars, the defeat of the multilateralism, the death of the UN and I am afraid that Terrorism will rise a lot. Osama must be cheering for Bush. ohh gosh, 4 more years of nightmares are coming ahead

The question is who's next? Iran? Syria? North Korea? Cuba? Venezuela?

Crazy Canuck - I know its a big call, but I stand by it.

After 9/11 I dont think Americans really thought too much about their foreign policies etc and how that affects each individual american - it didnt really concern them.

But after 9/11 americans had to think about where they stood in relation to USA foreign policies - more awareness of the effect of their policies was forced on americans.

So after 3 years of weighing up what is best for the country, americans have decided that bush is the best man for the job - this decision will have consequences that americans will bear the brunt of - and when they ask 'why us'? 'what did we do to deserve this"? - the answer is simple - you re-elected a crazy, right wing, christian crusader and therefore should experience the consequences to that decision.

Obviously I feel for democratic americans, my heart goes out to each one of you. But the collective consciousness decides the outcome and this is a sad day for americans.

Bush has never been required to speak properly when addressing the public. He talks and act like a cowboy and alot of southerners fall for it. He plays on voters emotions and that's a good quality to have as a politician.

I'm sorry to say but Americans are dumbfucks. Most of those who voted for fucktard are more concerned with blocking gay marriages than the economy

So if somebody decides to drive another plane into NYC and a number of people die, you won't feel much sympathy for them? Because America voted for Bush? Even though NY is largly Dem?

Yes, the answer is those mutha-fuckin' terrorists. Killem' all!

You have to understand that those who voted for Bush don't think like you. It's always someone else's fault.

Plus, he is a great leader and has proven himself by taking down Saddam.

Czech fan, he's going to be worse this time around. He doesn't have to worry about his approval rating, because he's already sealed the deal for another 4 years. We'll continue to lose more jobs, there will be a draft and you better believe terrorist attacks are on the way.

The only thing I'm happy about, is I'm going to leave the USA, the country I was born in raised in, because I have given up hope on this nation. It's abundantly clear that more people want to support a cruel, vile, evil little lying man, than someone who could do good for this country. And you know how it went in bible times, let them drown in their own sorrows. I only hope a few other Bush haters, like me, can make their way out of the USA. Because those of us that voted for Kerry, won't deserve anything that goes wrong.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

You bring up a good point, NY and CA the two largest states are Democrat states. They will be the most likely to get attacked. Hell even DC, where the white house is, is democrat. I feel sorry for those places as they are democrats and good people who will feel the wrath of the blinded Bush Nazi followers. It's too bad, we can't inform Al Queda, that if they plan on cleaning up the USA, why not aim for the White House first!
