Hurrah for Mr. Bush  

International election observers agree, this was one fine elction:

"The observers said they had less access to polls than in Kazakhstan, that the electronic voting had fewer fail-safes than in Venezuela, that the ballots were not so simple as in the Republic of Georgia and that no other country had such a complex national election system.

'To be honest, monitoring elections in Serbia a few months ago was much simpler,' said Konrad Olszewski, an election observer stationed in Miami by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe."

How wonderful. Four more years. You fell for it and my pal Bush is in charge now, for real. He has a mandate this time.

Four more years of stealing every last penny from the country. Four more years of pollution and environmental pillaging. Four more years of unnecessary wars, terrorism, military actions, and arms manufacturing. Four more years of crushing civil liberties, of inflicting right-wing, neo-con, born again morals on the nation. Four more years of kickbacks to pals in corporations. For more years of vacation, ignoring the poor, privatizing social security, and bigger SUV's.

This is going to be great.

Losing Jobs - Right Direction 

The AP tells us of Bush's final day running for president in 2004. He's boldly telling people who lost jobs that losing jobs is good, and that more of the same will be all that they need.
'I'm here with a message for the people of Ohio,' Bush said, addressing the tens of thousands of people who have lost jobs in Ohio during his four years in office.

'I know the economy of this state has been through a lot, but we are moving in the right direction,' he said. 'To do so, we have to keep your taxes low and I want you to remind your friends and neighbors that my opponent will raise the taxes on Ohio's families and Ohio's small businesses.'

A weaker politician would have said something like "I know the economy has been through a lot, and that is why we are going to make some changes." Not Bush. We set a course and we are following it.

Sure, this is a lot like the lost driver who refuses to pull over and ask for directions out of stubborn pride, but when one is president, ordinary rules no longer apply. Lost a job? Great! This is the right direction!
