WHEW! The 2004 Presidential Election is over! For the first time in months, I am able to sleep soundly. On November 3, 2004, 51% of the United States breathed a collective sigh of relief.
When Fox News and NBC finally called Ohio for Bush in the wee hours of 11/03/04, I thought that we, as a country, could finally begin moving forward. This was not a disputed election like the one in 2000 (or so I thought). President Bush won 51% of the popular vote and 286 Electoral College votes. Republicans took solid control of both houses of Congress. Even John Kerry called for unity in his concession speech.
Boy was I wrong! John Kerry did not make it off the stage from giving his concession speech before the liberal crowd started their next round of attacks. The Internet became clogged with more hate speech and stolen election stories. The liberals wasted no time turning on their own - attacking Terry McAuliffe, John Kerry and the DNC in general. As news of the military action in Fallujah filtered in, the soldier bashing began in earnest. Talk ran the gamut from succession of the red states to expatriation. The world had once again gone mad.
As with my first book, Warmongers and Traitors - Thoughts on the War with Iraq, I surfed the Worldwide Web to build the core of this book. The actual statements from Internet Message Boards, Chats, personal emails and messages sent through my website are included. (The statements are in quotation marks to make them easier to identify). How better to understand what the world thinks than to read their own words.
Now...the Fat Lady has hit the final note on the Presidential Election of 2004. Let's see how the liberals took the loss...I'll give you a hint...It ain't pretty.
