  •  Swifties didn't lose the election.... (none)
    Kerry did.  Give that kool-aid a break bro!  He ran a campaign that was worse (if that's possible) than Mr. Gore's.

    Bush's lose of jobs from the beginning of his term, his misguided war-on-Iraq, his failure to find OBL (either dead or alive), the trillions of dollars of surprise turned into trillions of dollars of deficits (as far as the eye can see) were reason enough for him to lose the election.

    Well, after this, I should think nothing of falling down stairs.

    •  Sure (4.00)
      Can't wait to see your campaign.

      If you were listening, you would have heard attacks on all of these things.  In fact, it looks like you posted them straight from the Kerry for President talking points.

      to bash Kerry now. Let me know when you're done with the monday morning quarterbacking....

      Kerry received about 56-57 million votes, you show me a Democrat with those totals and I'll acknowledge your crap about "running a worst campaign than Gore".

      You obviously have completely underestimated and misunderstood the GOP machine:

      1. Do you think these people actually WANT to find OBL when they can use the fear of him being out there to win votes?? OBL is a fucking cartoon...he's meaningless. You catch him tomorrow and hang him in the Rose Garden and what does it mean? Fucking nothing. There are 50 OBLs waiting to take his place. This administration would have to create a new one the next day.

      2. Find me a dozen regular Americans that can even grasp generally why deficits are bad. To 80% of this country, if the money isn't coming out of their checking account every month then they figure its free money. Even fewer give a shit about passing debt on to the next generation. That's the reality. Bush knows America doesn't pay attention to complex issues so he kills people with lies and talking points that no one bother to even challenge him on.

      You think that's Kerry's fault?? The Democrats have been hemmorraging support long before Kerry For President rolled along. This is a structural problem that the entire Party needs to step up and face.

      Dean is just scratching the surface with his work at the DNC and the grassroots, while it made gains in 2004, isn't even in the same league as what the GOP has built over the past 30 years.

      The next step is for Democrats to stop acting like victims all the time. If you want to stand up and fight then step up and do something constructive. If you want to sit there and whine about the past, and pie fights, and why we have to board up the place because so & so is blogging at another site then you're useless to the effort.
