2000: "Bush accepts, pledges to work with Gore to united divided nation"

In his first act as president-elect, Bush will attend a ''prayer and hope'' church service Thursday in Austin, spokeswoman Karen Hughes said. ''He wants to start this on a message of prayer and healing,'' she said.

On Inauguration Day Jan. 20, the Texas governor will become: -- The first presidential candidate since Benjamin Harrison in 1888 (and only the fourth in American history) to lose the national popular vote but win the state electoral contest, thus the White House. Harrison's foe, Grover Cleveland, rebounded to win the presidency in 1893, offering a glimmer of hope for Gore who, at 52, may want to make another run at the White House. -- The nation's second father-son presidential team after John Adams (1791-1801) and John Quincy Adams (1825-1829). Bush has relied on his well-to-do family's connections, both to raise money and build the foundation of a new administration.

''I know America wants reconcilation and unity,'' Bush told the nation. ''I know Americans want progress. And we must seize this moment and deliver.'' Advisers said Democrats are under consideration for Cabinet posts, including Sen. John Breaux, D-La. Also mentioned in GOP circles: Rep. Charles Stenholm, D-Texas, former Sens. J. Bennett Johnston, D-La., and Sam Nunn, D-Ga., and former Dallas Democratic Party chairman Sandy Kress.

After eight years of Democratic control in the White House, Republicans promised compromise and consensus. ''The long trail that has kept the nation in suspense since November 7th is now over,'' said House Speaker Dennis Hastert. ''Now, as a nation, we must come together.''

Now I sign on and see Bush wants to start something with Iran. I have no words to express my utter contempt for this piece of shit.

3. Hi, I'm Bush...
...and I'd like, as my first official act, to lie to your face, feed you shit, and tell you you MUST exclaim that you love the taste of it. Thank you, and go fuck yourself.

He sure as hell did. 3 years of endless grief and war. These plans, as everything else, were lies and fraud. Instead, immediately after the selection, bush change his mind and said fuck it, I won and I can do whatever I God damn well please.
