Four more like the last four?

Americans have voted, and chose George W. Bush by a narrow margin to continue on with his presidency. Now he must take responsibility for his actions, admit his errors, fix his mess, and start leveling with the people.

In the last four years, he invaded a country with shifting rationales now found bogus, and in the process alienated the world. His war has helped swell terrorist recruitment around the globe. Healthcare costs are soaring, income levels dropping; abortions are up, jobs are down, and the debt is the largest it's ever been.

I can't say that I'm terribly optimistic that he's going to turn around and start doing his job, especially after four years of having the rug pulled out from under us, but anything is possible. Even Bush governing with integrity. That's all I'm praying for.

Also, let's not get too particular and actually count all the votes. They are, after all, just votes. No need to fuss over an election.

Daily gratitude: Knowing that my safety does not rest in the hands of any politician, hope for the future, and a reason to be proud of Croatia (and the rest of the world). Zivjeli Hrvati!


your nation's citizens has my nation's sympathy. We'll be here for you, every bumble along the way.

Thanks, Shan. I pray that the rest of the world hasn't become too alienated, because we're going to need their help. A lot.

I reckon theres a lot of sympathy for the kerry supporters over here. Not so much for bush - but then I don't think he deserves it!
