Election Aftermath Thread

I really think the Republican party can only blame George Bush for this ... his supposed strength in 2004 (strength of his convictions) has become his party's downfall in this election. Most rational individuals are passionate and steadfast about their stance on something but adjust accordingly when new information is presented. You never saw this with this administration until a few weeks before the election and GWB's attempt to distance himself from 'stay the course'.

Bush took his narrow win in 2004 as a 'mandate' from the people to continue the policies he'd set in place. Hopefully he'll see this massive change as another mandate to adjust those policies accordingly.
