Bush Wins the 2004 elections - It's Over...

Bush wins second term as Kerry concedes
Democrat's team makes decision after looking at Ohio numbers

(CNN) -- President Bush plans to declare victory Wednesday after Sen. John Kerry conceded the election, aides to both men said. As in the 2000 race, the election came down to a single state.Ohio's 20 electoral votes proved decisive when it grew clear Wednesday morning that Bush's lead in the state was unlikely to be erased by provisional and absentee ballots. Those votes are still being counted. A Bush win in Ohio would give the president a projected 274 electoral votes --
270 are needed to win.


With the World looking on, somewhat stunned, George Bush has won his second term. I'm not suprised. Bush was able to hammer his message home far more effectively than Kerry. A message that was simple. 'If you don't vote for me the country will once again be vunerable to terrorists.' I suppose the Americans prefer the devil they know to the one they do not. Then there are also the religious\moral crusaders out to turn the US into some kind of quakers den. Personally I have to wonder how the US could produce two candidates of such average quality.

The Americans must remember, though, the words of one of their Icons:

"Elections belong to the people. It is their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters."
- Abraham Lincoln -

Never has this been more true...
