Personally RANT, I have to disagree on a couple of things.
First of all, no matter what FOX is trying to spin at us, this was not about 'values' or whatever they are trying to say. While eleven states
ratified a ban on gay marriage, or at least a definition of marriage, the real issue here was the war. The fact of the matter is that too many people
woke up to the terror threat, and they trusted GW far more than the wishy washy pie in the sky promises of Kerry, without ever seeing a real clear
plan that differed in a significant regard from what is already being done by GWB.
In addition, the constant spin that we have the worst economy, jobs, and such since Hoover was not washing with voters. While some areas still suffer
economically, wages are up, jobs are up, GDP growth is up, and many, many people realize that. The truth is that there are over 5 million more people
on the workforce now than the 2000 election. Don't believe me, check the BLS website.
People just could not connect with anything Kerry said. He wasn;t ever clear on the war, never offered a clear plan on several key items important to
voters, and appeared to be crying foul in the final weeks without any proof. Add that to the rampant reports of voter fraud, and you have a clearer
picture of the electorate's thought process.
Bottom line: When peopel stepped in that booth, they remembered that we are at war for our very existence, and they just didn't trust that Kerry
would execute the war the way it needs to be waged.
