So again Senor Bush is in charge of this great land of ours and you know what, it sucks to say it, but I saw it coming a mile away. I’m not a Republican, nor am I a Democrat anymore. I used to be a full fledged Dem but living in Jersey under Democratic rule quickly proved that thinking along those lines can be just as evil and fucked up as thinking like an elephant. I’m more middle of the line towards “I don’t really care” because all politicians are lying pieces of shit and really only look out for their parties and their friends. This is precisely why I can not stand politics. It’s like fucking high school all over again on a country wide scale.
Believe me, I really wanted Bush out. The man has single-handedly made us the laughing stock of the world. However, Kerry was most definitely not the right person to overthrow Bush and it was very obvious in this election. I mean to not take a state (Ohio) that has lost hundreds of thousands of jobs mostly due to our government’s actions and give it back to the guy that lost them those jobs in the first place speaks volumes! The Democratic party made a HUGE mistake making that man their voice for a new government. To be brutally honest, even at the beginning they did not have anybody good enough to overthrow Bush.
You can not win an election by simply saying the other guy is wrong. You need to clearly present your ideas and how you plan on implementing them, not continually bring up facts that we all already know to drive your point across. We know Bush didn’t fight in a war, we know about Haliburton (sp?), we know about the job losses. Continually bringing this stuff up only makes you look like you have no policy yourself. Granted I could simply hit your web site and read about your views and ideas, you need to do this during the debates in your commercials. You have to understand that in this country especially, the appearance you present in the media greatly influences your voters. Merely bringing up the inadequacies of your opponent makes you look like that schmuck who works in the office who tells the boss how you messed up to get ahead in the ranks. Also, don’t try to kiss everybody’s ass because no one can respect a boot licker. For god’s sake, shooting a fucking goose to get the gun vote? WTF is wrong with you??
I could go on forever as to why the Democratic party failed America this time around. However, Dave completely expresses how I (and a whole mess of other people) feel about this election and why Bush won. You want to stick it to Bush? Think 2006 folks, when Congress goes through it’s elections. Let’s not forget… Part of the reason Bush is spending like a rich old lady on Madison Ave in NYC is that both Congress and the Senate are Republican. They’ll let him spend anything he wants, like a spoiled single child in a rich family. Stick him with a mostly Dem congress in 2006 will most certainly keep him at bay somewhat. As far as 2008? I can’t see any Dems doing a bit of damage in the presidential race, but most definitely take it primarily in the Senate. Hillary? Puh-leaze… I don’t know very many New Yorkers that can stand her and I think she’s an idiot. Granted I know there will be a female president in my lifetime, it will most certainly not be her.
Personally, I’d love to see Gore take a stab at it again in 2008 or Jon Stewart. 😉
