I still don't know how he got elected in for a 2nd term - Hawk's Eyrie

I still don't know how he got elected in for a 2nd term
I was listening to Bush's press conference on NPR this morning. On the parts I heard, he was fumbling so badly it was painful. And/or blaming the partisan politics on everybody but him.

If I was Kerry, I'd be embarrassed I lost to him. Hell, I'm embarrassed my country voted him in for a second term.

I'm embarrassed he was voted in for a first term (by the Supreme Court), etc. etc.

Enh. I certainly didn't vote for him in 2000, and I'm not happy with what happened with the Supreme Court; however, I'm not going to ding people for voting for him then. He seemed like he could be a moderate politician (I didn't believe it, but I saw how others could).

2004... there was no excuse.

9/11 gave him a huge boost in support and it was still partly there in 2004, at least enough to have solid support of the sorts of people who voted for him in 2000.

Given that, all Bush needed was an extra percent or so to put him over the top. And given that he was an incumbent, had more campaign resources, and a media effectively tilted toward him, he was a pretty good bet to get that extra percent or two.
