We wouldn't know which to be more excited about, the indictments or by how much Kerry was going to win.

2. yeah, but the kicker is . . .
I DID feel this way in September 04; continued to feel that way right through the exit polling reports, THEN . . .well, I will feel more confident that any of this is going to have any palpable effect, after it already has. . . till then I ain't countin' my chickens.

10. Ditto, Even knowing all about DIEBOLD I still felt excited that the junta
could be on its way out.

4. Bushs approval wouldn't be this low
He would be running ads non-stop to improve his image. In early '04 his job approval was in the low 40's and he climbed back to be over 50%. This year he is not running an ad campaign or trying to scare people with terror alerts on the scale he was using last year. He is trying to scare people again, but not as much which is not working.

5. He is running a steady stream of terralerts
but nobody is listening any more.

I am glad the election is not until next year. The only way we'll get rid of the worst offenders is by indictments and impeachments. Their grip on the voting machines assures that elections won't hurt them. But now, by getting rid of them judicially, we'll be in a better position to start repairing the election system and to win big in the election.

15. Yeah but you don't see him campaigning daily
Last year he was advertising every day about how he keeping America safer from terrorists. This year you don't see nary such an ad, because it is not an election year, and there's no Democratic candidate to beat up on and smear.

9. A true Catch22 you point out
of course we are all SUPPOSED to want things to get better in Iraq sooner rather than later, or we aren't supporting our troops, BUT IF they are in fact better. . . well you see where I am going. . . . Really tough, but I think I am hope either #1-something takes out the whole administration in a way that causes an emergency re-election, not likely, or #2-more things go wrong.

18. So you're actually hoping things get worse in Iraq?
Even though that means more Iraqis and U.S. troops will die? Just so you get the satisfaction of having Bush look worse than he already does?

I really hope it's just a case that you forgot the :sarcasm: icon

11. If it was an election year media would still be covering this up for Bush.
All of DC media knew Rove outed Plame which meant that Bush was lying all along.

They just chose to NOT TELL their audiences filled with voters.

13. If that were the case, we probably wouldn't be hearing about any of this.
Somehow they would figure out a way to keep it all undercover, imo. They did for the '04 'election'. Color me cynical.
