Bush: 'America has spoken'

BOSTON, Massachusetts (CNN) -- President Bush declared victory in his race for re-election Wednesday, telling his cheering supporters that "America has spoken."

"America has spoken, and I'm humbled by the trust and the confidence of my fellow citizens," Bush said. "With that trust comes a duty to serve all Americans. And I will do my best to fulfill that duty every day as your president."

Hello! 48% of this great country does not trust Bush. That was proven on Tuesday night. So Bush should not be humbled. He should be cautious because almost half the nation voted for the chance to see what Kerry could do. But he won't be cautious. He is a lame duck, and he can do what he really wanted to do the first term. I am fearful of a lot of things right now, paramount to that list is a collapse of the economy, I hope it does not happen under Bush's second term. As my friend Brandon said "I am hopeful, because it's all I can be." I feel the same way. We can only hope. Lets hope that Bush's second term is not as bad as presidential history tells us about.

I don't really want to talk about the Ohio vote, but I have this to say: I am upset about it, but I do know that a great deal of this site has voted GOP in the past, especially here in the north west part of the state. Portage County, where I lived before college, voted blue. Stark County, where my dad lives, voted blue. Cuyahoga even voted blue. Rural voters in this state lost Ohio for Kerry. It is sad, I am sad.

Neil has some good points on what to look forward to in the next 4 years. And since I am lazy and don't want to make my own list, please read his.

And as Jake put it: Bush won the majority of the popular vote, so he should be president (for better or for worse). Now can we get on with life?
