“We'll admit to being heartbroken by the outcome of yesterday's election. It's a dark day.”

- Email note to supporters from, 11/3/04


“Earlier today, I received a call from President Bush and we discussed the need for reconciliation. I appreciate the President reaching out, and I look forward to working with him on important issues for Nevada and the nation. At the same time, I will not shirk from my responsibility to stand up and fight for Nevada values and Democratic principles. . . . We must...confront serious domestic problems such as affordable health care, a clean environment and access to a quality education for every American. ”

- Sen. Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, widely expected to become Tom Daschle’s replacement, serving notice he intends to continue obstructing Republican legislation and nominations, 11/3/04


“(E)very state should adopt a few voter integrity rules. That means showing an ID to prove who you are and where you live before being allowed to vote. If anyone wheels out the old ‘voter intimidation’ scare card, the rest of us should tell them to stuff it. If you are that afraid of the ‘authorities’ finding out your identity, why are you showing up at the polls in the first place?”

- Brendan Miniter, Political Diary, 11/3/04


“It takes a deliberate act of fraud and bias to get an exit poll wrong. Since the variables of whether or not a person will actually vote are eliminated in exit polling, it is like peeking at the answer before taking the test. But these exit polls were wrong. And the fact that they were so totally, disastrously wrong is a national scandal. There should be a national investigation to unearth the story behind the bias.

“In this election, we have seen CBS go with a story on Bush's National Guard service based on forged documents. We have seen the New York Times and CBS report 377 missing tons of explosives that were not missing, not that many tons and confiscated by American troops. And now we have seen exit polls that were wrong, quite possibly deliberately biased."

- New York Post columnist Dick Morris


“President Bush may be celebrating victory today, but he owes it to a group he never acknowledged during the campaign. I'm talking about the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth. They are responsible for keeping Bush in the White House – or, more precisely, keeping John Kerry from snatching it from him. There is not a doubt in my mind this was the difference in the race. The vets did Bush's dirty work. They took Kerry on and told the American people the truth about this fraud, this liar, this deceiver. Just enough Americans got the message to preserve a win for Bush.

“...It is impossible to overstate just how significant the impact of ‘Unfit for Command,’ the best-selling book by John O'Neill and Jerome Corsi, was in this campaign. It kick-started the independent effort of the Swiftboat vets, gave their TV ads more publicity and helped make Kerry the issue. The Bush campaign should have no illusions that yesterday's victory was their own doing. It was not.

- Joseph Farrah of, 11/3/04


“I'm greatly relieved that Bush eked out a victory. But he hurt his own chances every step of the way. Clinging to ridiculously unpopular and disastrous policies like amnesty for illegal aliens – whatever euphemism he gives it – probably robbed Bush of 2-3 percentage points in his race. His domestic spending binge in the last four years, plus his even bigger proposals for the next four years dampened enthusiasm for the president, who was re-elected on the basis of his handling of the war on terror.

“If I don't sound happy today, it's only because I fear Bush and his handlers will learn all the wrong lessons from victory. There will be a temptation to congratulate themselves for a job well done, a campaign in which they pushed all the right buttons. The truth is that Kerry was an incredibly weak candidate - one who should have been trounced by an incumbent, wartime president the way Richard Nixon trounced George McGovern, the way Ronald Reagan trounced Walter Mondale. Kerry was a bigger embarrassment than both those losers.”

- Joseph Farrah of, 11/3/04


“Now that President Bush is a lame duck he can concentrate on doing the things he thinks ought to be done and not worry about getting re-elected. However, he is wrong if he thinks his victory gives him a mandate to move leftward. He was re-elected by conservatives, many of them unhappy campers who voted for him only because they were deathly afraid of John Kerry and what he would do to the country.

“Bush has a choice now. He can become what many of his supporters thought he would be in his first term--the clear successor to Ronald Reagan. Or he can continue along the road of go-along-to-get-along moderation that has dogged Republican leadership so many times in the past. It is going to be up to conservative Republicans now to keep the pressure on the president to steer a rightward course. Without such pressures all presidents tend to drift left.”

- Lyn Nofziger, Musings, 11/3/04


“The Founding Fathers sought to protect certain fundamental freedoms, such as freedom of speech, against the changing whims of popular opinion. Similarly, they created the electoral college to guard against majority tyranny in federal elections. The president was to be elected by the 50 states rather than the American people directly, to ensure that less populated states had a voice in national elections.

“This is why they blended electoral college votes between U.S. House seats, which are based on population, and U.S. Senate seats, which are accorded equally to each state. The goal was to balance the inherent tension between majority will and majority tyranny. Those who wish to abolish the electoral college because it’s not purely democratic should also argue that less populated states like Rhode Island or Wyoming don’t deserve two senators.

“...Those who call for the abolition of the electoral college are hostile to liberty.”

- Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.), Texas Straight Talk, 11/1/04


“Government is not the solution, it’s the problem.”

- Ronald Reagan

The democrats need to look long and hard at the lesson of this election. The majority of people do not support gay rights. They do not support abortion. They do not support taking God out of schools or the pledge. They do not support gun-control. And the majority certainly does not support the money and ideas of George Soros or Michael Moore with his lies told in Bowling Columbine or Fahrenhite 9/11. The only thing the democrats did that was positive was help get more people out to vote. That was done mostly by republicans getting scared of what Kerry would do. So much so they came out to vote. The democrats need to look at the map and see for themselves all the red areas. The blue areas are so small they should be ashamed of staying with their old ideas. Get with the program democrats. Your thoughts are not the majority any more.

How can you be so sure? I wish I could see things in black or white; right or wrong. All I see are shades of gray.

I voted for Mr. Bush. I support gay rights and think there should be civil unions. I support choice; not abortion. Choice. I do not think children should be forced to pray in school but believe we should not stop children from praying if they want. I do not believe that God should be in the pledge. That is not the way it was written. I believe in the right to bear arms.

Mr. Kerry represented the far left. I hope Mr. Bush does not end up representing the far right.
