    how do you feel about the fact that Kerry couldn't even be bothered to come out and speak to his supporters who stayed up all night in the wind and rain? even though he said he would...

    Kerry supporters...

    just for the sake of my curiosity...

    how many actual, genuine "Kerry supporters" do you reckon there are on this site?

    granted, I stayed absent from the political poo-throwing in here for quite awhile... but about all I've ever seen are the "anyone but Bush" contingent-- not any real, die-hard Kerry fans...

    Seems to me Bush is going to have a FAR clearer mandate than last time...

    Honestly.. I don't think this changes anything, just four more years of the same thing. I just want to hear the BS on this forum stop...

    I know you think I kill conservative babies and rob from the rich to feed the poor and all that shit.... but I never registered as a Democrat before this election and I was even pretty ambivalent about Bush until he waltzed into Iraq..

    So I'm not sure this bothers me more than having to listen to Joe for another four years.

    yeah, but that's not saying much...

    when the election comes down to one state's electors, it doesn't quite qualify as a sweeping victory...

    They just have their priorities all wrong.

    I was joyriding my bike around last night. It was fun. Too bad it started raining.

    What is required for you to say the President has a Mandate?

    It sounds like there are still going to be fights in the last three states. (Iowa, Ohio, and New Mexico)

    BUT the President appears to be ahead by like 10-20k votes in each of those states..

    Isn't that enough? Or do you think you have to win by like 10% or more and/or a large margin of electoral votes?

    The f*cked up thing is it sounds like there were still issues in Florida.. the President won by a decent margin so it doesn't matter but that's ridiculous, Florida should have the best election system in the country by now after the events of 2000.

    yeah, ten percent would be nice... a twenty-five percent margin would be even more telling. that would be a clear indication that the voters in this country are behind the Prez and all he stands for.

    once again, we're faced w/ a President leading a country populated by just about as many people who didn't want him in office as did.

    if you asked a random, passing Tree Squid, he'd prolly tell you that that means only half the country-- plus a little bit-- is enlightened; the other half are drooling idiots. but I don't necessarily see it as that cut 'n' dried.

    do I think Bush is gonna win? yep. Ohio's gonna go to him, I reckon, and NM and IA just don't matter. but... if I were a Bush supporter, I wouldn't be leaping for joy...

    simply stating that the results aren't final ain't an indication of sour grapes or wishful thinking or anything else... just da facks, ma'am...

    Is this just some irrational fear that Bush is going to cause you to lose your job, or are you really about to lose your job?

    Hope things work out...

    IMO, if you voted for Kerry that makes you a Kerry supporter.

    But for the sake of argument I'll change "Kerry supporter" to "those who voted for Kerry".

    I still would like some feedback pertaining to the title of this thread though...

    How about this.. you were just trolling...

    Might as well have an intelligent discussion about the election instead of wondering why he chose not to go out in the rain.

    Where did Bush set up? Did it rain there?

    In an effort not to pick a fight with Bryan..

    Did Kerry ever promise to go out in the rain?

    I don't know.. I can't be made to feel bad for people who decided to go stand out on a cold New England night if they weren't prepared for nasty weather. It IS New England after all.

    It's not as if Kerry was going to somehow make them feel warm and dry.

    Well I think we should put the whole "trolling" thing to bed, enough of this cliche. This is Controversial Forums.

    As far as Kerry not chosing to go out in the rain...

    people voted for him in confidence that he would be a capable leader, but in the face of adversity he couldn't get up in front of his people and re-energize them? And you think he'd be a capable leader on the world stage?

    Yes, he had promised that he would be there, win or lose. That's why I posted this thread...

    no worries Ben.

    btw Jeff, it's clear that you're bothered by all of this.
    Joe... as with so many other things that are "clear" to you-- especially as regards me-- that just ain't true.

    this is the result I expected.

    I have no use for most polititians, Bush AND Kerry included.

    I don't see much change to my life / lifestyle regardless of which of the two sock puppets won.

    I genuinely hope that, since YOU obviously have such an emotional investment in this election, that the results bring you some joy!

    (and no, I don't really believe that telling you the truth will change your opinion... )

    I don't know what he could have said that would have energized them.

    He hasn't conceded yet, at that time he should obviously speak.

    But what was he going to say at a late hour last night? That his lawyers will fight?

    Better to stay silent until things are known for sure. I think he would have had a good chance of sounding like a sore loser if he said something last night before he was ready to concede.
