A big win for America, and a loss for the mainstream media.
This is a great article by Peggy Noonan that highlights several of the important facets about the Bush win. Like Peggy I was impressed with the graciousness of John Kerry in defeat. It was a tough campaign for both candidates. I was also impressed with how hard John Kerry and the Democratic party worked. Despite their best efforts George Bush increased his percentages in almost every state and received more than 59 million votes. That broke the old record held by Ronald Reagan. Despite the misguided efforts of CBS, NY Times, and others to distort their story selection and writing to promote their political agenda, George Bush received a plurality of the popular vote. It takes a long time to build a good name in business and a short time to ruin it. Many people will continue to think highly of John Kerry in the days to come. Character does count!
