Bush is that John Kerry "didn't have the charisma" needed to sell his vision to the people. Charisma was the least of Kerry's problems. Other Democratic strategists (the same ones who were predicting a huge pro-Kerry youth vote) are scratching their heads over the Bush victory. They say they understand that voters think values are important. But, remember, the Kerry/Pelosi/Schumer Democratic Party still thinks thier values are squarely in the mainstream! Let this be clear: this election is a reafirmation of Ronald Reagan--his hopefulness, his vision, and his adherence to the conservative values that rescued the Republican Party from it's political exile. After the celebrating, President Bush must get down to the hard work of achieving conservative goals. Doing this will expand the Republican majority not shrink it. As we beat back the terror threat around the globe, President Bush needs to offer further support for the culture of life, advance meaningful tax reform, appoint judges who don't act like super-legislators, and enforce our national borders for cultural and security reasons. Over the past year, we saw the political left throw everything it had against President Bush--ginned up talk of a military draft, lies about what happened in Tora Bora, phoney Natonal Guard documents, even blame for flu shot shortages. The elites in the "old media", academia, Holywood, the Soros' billionaires club, and the EU were all pushing for John Kerry all the way. With all this the Democrats still couldn't win. James Carville conceded that "the party needs to reassess where it is...They're going to ask themselves tough questions."
