First of all, it wasn't Kerry's fault. What went wrong?

The Swifties lied.
Bush lied.
The Black vote was suppressed.
Kerry couldn't get his message out.
The Media was on W's side.
The voters were stoopid.
Nader cost him Florida.
Ivan cost him Florida.
Chuckie the Alligator cost him Florida.
Mrs. Kerry opened her mouth.
The Clintonistas sabotaged him.
Karl Rove created Memo-gate.
The Right Wing dominates the media.
The voters just didn't understand how smart Kerry is.
The NRA got him.


Any others?

Uhh, it was Florida's fault.

Because Kerry sucks donkey dicks...that's why...

Because he's an arrogant elitist and a hollow-at-the-core empty suit, who has no compelling reason/conviction to justify himself BEING President . His core "conviction" is his arrogant I-think-I-should-be-President-and-who-are-you-to-suggest-otherwise attitude.

I hate John Kerry.

The American people are too stupid to vote in the last best chance we had for America.

... and the number one reason we'll find over at DU will be;

The election was fixed. Bush is unelectable, and he stole this election just like he stole it from Gore in 2,000.

You guys don't seem to understand. We need the excuses we will hear from the Kerry Kamp. Enough with the rational reasons! Stop it with the truthful viewpoints! We need to prepare the list that the Dems are going to use.

You guys are putting alot of faith in that fact that Kerry is toast. We may hope and pray his dingy of a campaign goes to the bottom, but November is a long ways away, fellas.

DU-styled political memes are best done in one word.

"Diebold"
"Haliburton"
"Corpocracy"
"ooooooiiilllllllll!"
"Disenfranchisement"
"FauxNews"

I think it was the Dukakis curse. Kerry was, after all, Dukakis' Lt. Gov.

Seriously, though, I think the election will be won or lost on the issue of the War on Terror. If the public senses a terrorist threat, Bush will win handily. In that regard, the Russian school massacre was a big factor.

Kerry's only chance for winning was to focus on a domestic agenda, but instead he made Vietnam the centerpiece of his campaign. First, the Swift Boat Vets came forward to remind the country of his traitorous anti-war activities. Then Dan Rather was caught trying to use forged documents to attack President Bush's service record.

The immediate result of the Russian school massacre and CBS Memogate is Bush's current double-digit lead.

I still think the race could tighten up if Kerry shifted his campaign to a domestic agenda, but memogate and the Swift Boat Vets are causing his campaign to play defense.

If I had to guess, I'd say the election will be a landslide victory for Bush with at least one surprise victory (NY, CA?). Okay, maybe there is something to the idea of a Dukakis curse!!!

Please post your pre-emptive reasons why Kerry lost

The gun issue // His AWB support
His VN opinions when we still were at war
His disrespect for his medals ----------- which others received - and earned

But mostly because he has no honor ----------- honor , we need that in the CIC

Go President Bush.................. GOD bless you

because the Dems were too arrogant in their Bush hating AND lefties pulled the Party so far left that evev the kinda moderates were out by the time they realized thatDean was poison ant they dropped him. All that was left was JFK, and nobody had really vetted him enough to find out he was an empty suit in the Senate and his post-war activities were poison to all but lefties . Now they are stuck with aloser. The tin foil boys will say Hillary engineered it. NOPE, but she may have seen it coming though and let it happen, nobody said she was stupid.
