Are the reason that the Democrats lost the U.S election.
Its been a month now so I thought I'd revisit the subject. Actually was going to blog about the incident that I blogged on yesterday but I was reading some stuff on the subway on my way home and seeing its exactly a month after the election I figured it might be poignant.
Just something to think about.
According to an article in the Dec 6th New Yorker magazine if white men could not vote then John Kerry would have won by seven million votes.
There was also a key change in the way married women voted. In 2000 Bush got forty nine percent of the married women votes but in 2004 this increased to fifty five percent. Married women love Bush ...Interesting.
Forty Nine percent of Americans trusted only Bush to be able to handle terrorism (what do they put in the water over there?) and of those 49%, 97% voted for him which already gives him about 47-48% of the electorate. So basically what these stats are saying is that Kerry was always between a rock and a hard place.
Oh, just something I remembered that I wanted to throw in. Growing up in Barbados we had a saying when people were talking foolishness. We would say ya "talkin nuff bush" or "ya talkin a bundle a bush". Maybe we were being prophetic because isn't it ironic now that the President of the US is Bush and he duz really talk nuff nuff foolishness. :-)
4 more years. Lawd ave mercy!
