Here is how I see things. In 2000, no-one really knew the difference between Bush and Gore, everyone thought Gore was boring etc... Plus everyone thought Bush was closer to the center on issues. If they only knew...
Gore looked like he was on PCP and Jim Beam recently, screaming that Bush lied to us. Bush is definitely more of a centrist. Kerry is way out there in left field; he will raise your taxes in a heartbeat.
They are seeing the Bush vision for America, and they don't like it. The exportation of manufacturing jobs (loss of 3 million jobs), tax cuts or the rich, the pissing off of the whole world, ties to corrupt companies (Enron, Halliburton, etc.), increased spending with decreased revenues, and being flat out lied to in order to start a war, have turned the average American against Bush. Not to mention the idiot can't even speak in complete sentences.
The exportation of manufacturing jobs started long before Bush was elected. It started with NAFTA. BTW, this is the 10-year anniversary of the implementation of NAFTA. Who was president in 1994?
Also, Kerry voted in favor of NAFTA, so he deserves much of the blame for the loss of jobs.
Bush pissed off the whole world? Please name some specific examples of countries that are pissed off. If you're thinking France, Germany, and Russia, ask yourself why they are pissed off. Hint: they lost big time when we kicked Saddam's ass.
People are now realizing that we are much worse off than we were in 2000, we are a country divided, at war, loosing jobs and money, and they know whom to blame. I predict that there will be a swelling of Demms at the poles this year. Even though Bush has like 10x as much money, I think the Demms are goanna win this year. Then we can begin to put this country back together again.
