You missed my point. That's 2.6 million people potentially voting against Bush. I hope he doesn't brush them off as glibly as you do.

They already do! And the unions they give all their money to, more importantly, bankroll the opposition to conservativism in America. Am I supposed to be crying that these people and the evil they bankroll are out of jobs? Look, I hope they get jobs somewhere else in non-union sectors as soon as possible.

I'm not sure I agree with you. Many, many of these workers were in the central and mid-west states (I forget whether they were red or blue on the famous map...), not on the east and west coasts.

Let's admit, the President won on a razor thin margin, and any of those states swinging could change the outcome. I think it is easier to lose one of those states, than to capture a New York or California.

The President's appeal as an honest straight shooter and as the anti-Clinton won many of those. Now that many of those people are unemployed, they may not be so willing to vote for him.

I know, the President looks pretty unbeatable now, but so did his father.

Are you stupid, drunk, or just pretending well?

Reagan got elected by a large margin in 1980 when union membership in this country was larger by many millions than it is today. Four years later he got reelected in an even greater landslide. He didn't get the 20% swing vote by praying down fire and brimstone on them. Reagan's economic recovery did not occur because he sold out the American voters to our enemies. It happened because he pushed through a very large tax rate cut, borrowed a lot of foreign money, rebuilt our national defense (with lots of domestic industrial production), and he had the leadership and patriotism to lead America, in war and peace.

I got my first college degree in 1981 and I remember thinking I knew everything, but since then I've learned even more, and accumulated more degrees. I just don't remember being quite as ignorant, or as quite as arrogant about my ignorance as you are.

Obviously, you're still young and stupid. Time will cure the first.

LOL. You are a walking contradiction. Just who do you think the gazillion Mexican and other various 3rd worlders are going to be voting for? They surely are NOT going to be pulling a lever for the Republican party anytime soon.

Well, on second thought the hand outs on the Repulican side are starting to rival the hand outs on the Democrat side. Put it this way, with such a large population of disenfranchised people there will never be an election of a party that advocates anything close to conservative ideals and policies.

Why you would want to live in a country like that is beyond understanding.
