    The re-election of President George Bush is a victory for a "relentless fight against terrorism," Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's top adviser, Raanan Gissin, said yesterday. Meanwhile, Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia expressed hope that Bush would return to peace making. Bush's strong support for Sharon's policies during his first term endeared him to the Israeli government, and created friction with Palestinian officials. The Palestinians charged him with unfairly favoring Israel, and resented his decision to boycott veteran leader Yasser Arafat. Bush's win is "a victory for the American people who decided to choose democracy, hope and a relentless fight against...

    George Bush won a decisive victory, and the largest popular vote of any president in history. Despite the fact that he had significant leads in the remaining undeclared states like New Mexico and Iowa, for a long time the major media prognosticators wouldn’t declare a victory--which would have pushed his 269 electoral count into victory lane. They couldn’t come to accept the fact that John Kerry--with all of his money, the money of George Soros and other major contributors, the support of the major print and television media, the support of the Hollywood left, and every negative issue that could...

    Living under the specter of tens of thousands of lawyers challenging voting results all over the nation was not a comforting thought over these last few days. I was also glad to get through the mass media’s lopsided siding with Senator Kerry during the last week of the campaign. And, of course, it was good the nation survived the media’s final attempt to influence the campaign, namely its highlighting of these phony early exit polls that supposedly showed Kerry winning going away. It was gracious of Kerry to concede in the face of election odds that had been insurmountable for...

    On Saturday, June 5, 2004, President Ronald Reagan was called into eternity. The depth of America's emotional outpouring in tribute to him was testimony to his character, and to the esteem in which his countrymen held him. Sadness naturally accompanies the passing of a loved one, but the time for weeping passes. We will always miss the Gipper, but we needn't look far to see the impact he left on this country. Reagan may have taken leave of this life, but he has left us his legacy. That legacy was one of bold achievement in domestic, foreign, and social policy....

    When the Massachusetts supreme court issued their ruling mandating that gay marriage be accepted and legalized they thought they were making another landmark civil rights ruling, in line with the pro-black, pro-feminist rulings of the last few decades. Little did they realize they had awakened a sleeping giant. It was the gay marriage issue that finally got Christians off of their big fat pews and got them out to vote for Republicans. The revolution has started. Thank you Massachusetts supreme court!

    CAIRO (AFP) - The prospect of George W. Bush spending four more years in the White House drew mixed reactions and a dose of caution in the troubled Middle East. While Israel and the US-backed leaders of Iraq (news - web sites) were confident a second term for Bush would signal more of the same policies, the Palestinian leadership, out of favour with Washington, was cautiously hopeful things might change for it. Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi said in an interview with Italy's La Repubblica newspaper published before Kerry conceded the election that "whoever is the winner will be our...

    With electoral results showing a narrow but not decisive victory for President George W.

However, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Daniel Kurtzer said Wednesday that that "unfinished business" remained between the two allies and that "certainly, a lot of work remains to be done" on committments made by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to President Bush. The Bush administration, while showing strong support for Sharon's policies, has on numerous occasions expressed concern at the pace of Israeli action on such issues as...

"The secretary-general warmly congratulates President Bush on his re-election," Fred Eckhard, a spokesman for Annan, said just hours after Democrat John Kerry telephoned his own congratulations to Bush.

Both governments have been close supporters of the US-led drive to oust the Taliban and hunt down remnants al-Qaeda, and were expected to welcome the result. Yet many ordinary citizens had hoped for a more moderate president in John Kerry, and greeted the prospect of "A win for Bush will be bad for Muslims," said laundry shop manager Mohammed Ali Akhtar, 48, who was...

    Democratic challenger John Kerry has telephoned President George Bush to concede the election to the White House, according to campaign spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter. Kerry is expected to make a formal statement later in the morning. The Democrat had remained behind closed doors in his house in a Boston neighbourhood on Wednesday, as advisers wrestled whether to admit defeat in Ohio, a move that would have effectively handed Bush a second term in office. Bush's Republican campaign had already declared victory in the midwestern state, saying the president has a "statistically insurmountable" lead of 130,000 votes. "We are convinced that President...

    Washington - President George W Bush edged close to victory on Wednesday against Senator John Kerry in a roiling contest that came down to a heart-stopper in the heartland, a battle over Ohio. Nothing was settled or conceded in the first light of day, but Kerry faced a daunting task trying to deny Bush an electoral majority that was almost within reach. The Democrat's campaign planned a statement by midday on Wednesday (US time), advisers said. Two of them, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Kerry's concession seemed simply a matter of time after one last look for uncounted ballots...

Kerry to concede. The White House has not yet announced what time Bush will appear. The campaign at first summoned reporters to appear at the Ronald Reagan Building between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. but then put off the event. A White House official said Bush's aides anticipate Kerry will concede today. But the official said that...

Bush won 61 percent of the overall vote in Texas, while challenger John Kerry took 38 percent and Libertarian Michael Badnarik squeezed out 1 percent.

    "This country is going so far to the right you are not even going to recognize it," remarked John Mitchell, President Nixon's attorney general, in 1970. Mitchell's prophesy became the mission of Nixon's College Republican president, Karl Rove, who implemented the strategy of authoritarian populism behind George W. Bush's victory. In the aftermath, Democrats will form their ritual circular firing squad of recriminations. But, finally, the loss was not due to their candidate's personality, the flaws of this or that advisor or the party's platform. The Democrats surprised themselves at their ability to raise tens of millions of dollars, inspire...

    Perhaps the most surprising news for gay observers of the presidential election is that exit polls show President Bush received the exact same percentage of gay votes — 23 percent — as he did four years ago. This despite the president's vocal support for a federal constitutional amendment banning gay marraige. According to the CNN exit poll, 4 percent of all voters identified as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the same percentage as four years ago, at least as reported by ABC News that year. By comparison, 11 percent of voters were black, 9 percent were Latino, 2 percent were Asian,...

Fired by partisan passion, a greater percentage of US voters appeared to have cast ballots than at any time since 1968 - and if you were a resident of a swing state, sometimes all those people seemed to be waiting in front of you. Waits were an hour, or two, or five. Volunteers passed out cookies, line-mates made friends, children turned crowded precinct rooms into impromptu playgrounds. Some people waited in lines at airports, so they could fly home to wait in line to...

Even according to notorious election night "exit polling" - a last-gasp attempt to fix the race for the left - the vast majority of voters considered terrorism the top issue, and these "security voters" gave president Bush a lopsided advantage over the junior senator from Massachusetts. The race began with the Democrats flocking to Howard Dean's antiwar message, and ended with John Kerry promising a more effective effort to "kill the terrorists wherever...

A year’s worth of high-powered Republican outreach to Jewish voters and widespread praise for the president’s pro-Israel policies produced only a small gain from the Bush-Cheney 2000 totals. Bush garnered 24 percent of the Jewish vote — compared to 19 percent four years ago — while Kerry took 76 percent, according to an...

    November 04, 2004 Democrats left to reflect on the wreckage of gambling all to win From Tim Reid in Washington and Chris Ayres in Boston JOHN KERRY’S defeat yesterday was a catastrophe for the nation’s Democrats, who must now face the reality that vast swaths of Middle America have deserted the party. After spending hundreds of millions of dollars against an incumbent not only responsible for an unpopular and bloody war, but also the first since Herbert Hoover to have presided over a net loss of jobs, Democrats woke yesterday to view a map of America that has turned even...

Let me tell, you they are FURIOUS.... reports of crying, vomiting, moving out of the country (claiming other countries will welcome the 'brain drain' LOL), making new political parties, creating the most massive protest the world has ever seen at the inauguration, plans to boycott businesses owned by 'Rethugs', plans to organize a movement to block Bush's presidency and the Republican House & Senate, demand recounts anyway, disown Kerry for caving (lots and lots of...

    In an interview with Wolf Blitzer today, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) had the spin machine at full rpm. She claimed the strong Republican support in the election was due to the GOP minimizing the "real" issues of the election (i.e. the economy, Iraq, health care) while emphasizing moral and social issues. In other words, the voters let the GOP pull the wool over their eyes and were too stupid to recognize what the vote was really about. When are these inane talking heads going to get it in their thick heads that this lack of respect is the...

    Between Michael Moore and Howard Stern the left believed these idiots would actualy sway the election. I even remember major papers writting op-eds on "the power that Stern brings". Stern proved to be nothing more than hero of the stupid

  • Elite Media`s Favorable Coverage Not Enough for Kerry Victory

    Kerry got the “best press ever” during the 2004 campaign, according to a study by the Center for Media and Public Affairs (CMPA). The senator received the most favorable news coverage of all presidential candidates in the last 25 years. Bush was covered very negatively this year, according to the study, but he did not match the amount of bad press faced by Ronald Reagan in 1984. Kerry received a total of 58 percent positive evaluations from the media, in the time from Labor Day to Election Day. Not surprisingly, Bush did much worse at 36 percent positive and 64...

    Karl Rove is undoubtedly the most intelligent and Machievellian human being who has ever lived. As proof, I offer these comments from a blogging site called Washington Monthly. When not busy blaming homosexuals for losing the election, they saw Karl Rove lurking around every corner, as you will see. The dems posts are in red--hats off to PJ-Comix. He masterminded massive voter fraud: I confess that I'm finding several aspects of the results to be a little fishy (e.g. exit polls not matching official results, in ways which consistently favor Repubs, so not just random sampling error; total turnout not...
