What do you think...

If President Bush had a higher voter approval, the war was over or winding down, and the economy was better, do you think that McCain would have taken more votes and that the message of change wouldn't have been an effective campaign message?

  • Sure. If Bush had done a better job there wouldn't be so many pissed off Americans. This election showed record numbers of voters, especially young voters. If he did a good job I wouldn't have been so worried about a clone of him being elected.

  • I'm sure it would have. Probably the biggest difference would have been that Obama's slogan would NOT have been "Change".

  • yep I do!! If there was a democrat right now in office then the current president-elect would be a republican....people live in the here and now.... they just look at their current living conditions and prospects and vote on that.... and just ASSUME that because there is a republican now in the white house that it's a Republicans fault!

    Clinton has said that many of our economy problems right now are due to things that he did while he was in office, but I don't think the avg. person realizes that.

  • The message of change is always an election slogan. If things were going ok I think most Americans would have been looking for better anyway after eight years, unless the Bush years were really good, prosperous years (like the Reagan years, one more term for the Reps). Honstly, this two party system stinks. It's a back and forth game between the Dems and Reps pretty much regardless of how things go. Sometimes though, the American people can't be manipulated to play it.

    I agree...the two party system is getting old...however, I'm not too sure that many people realize that there are other parties out there.

  • Well, those of you who are tired of the way the two party system works are in for a "change". The democrats have just swept the Presidency, House, Senate, and alot of Congress too. Oh, and the president is going to elect 3 Supreme Court Justices this year. Lets see how much our country changes in the next 4 years. Thank God we can always impeach him if he starts to get out of control.
