Congratulations, President-Elect Bush : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

Congratulations, President-Elect Bush

You won win Florida became a must-win state for Gore after being your must win state for so long.

You won when voters discovered the source of that swordbill attack from Maine had so much Democratic backing.

You one when Tipper Gore responded angrily to Clinton charge that Al Gore in office was the "next best thing" to a Clinton third term.

You won when voters realized that the "one percent" generally reinvest tax breaks, creating even more jobs.

You won when conservative democrats discovered you were really out to bankrupt the firearms industry with you new gun owners registration plan.

You won when Al Gore had to defend his environmental record from the upstart candidate Ralph Nader.

You won not because Nader was the problem, but because Gore is the problem.

You won because Gore was against everything big except government. You won because 50% of working folks have money in the stock market and when government goes after businesses like Microsoft, it hurts investors, cutting into their retirement portfolios.

You won because a lockbox won't keep Social Security viable for another generation.

You won for many more reasons, but most importantly, you won when Al Gore stood by Bill Clinton on that fateful day and said history will show Clinton to be one "of the greatest presidents of our time."

Congratulations, President-Elect Bush.

But in this thread, you said:

Unfortunately, that is all over now. Gore will win by 6 points nationally. Unfortunately, six months after he's in office, few will remember he had no mandate, while he claims he does have one.

Trouble is, the "one percent" will invest their tax break and create those jobs in China, Mexico, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and the Czech Republic - not in the USA.

I could not agree with you more, Brian. Well said.
