G.Z., Good morning.
"I think that Bush ought to lay back and avoid being so cocky about 'winning' since no one has 'won' quite yet... he comes across as arrogant ...... smug, tacky, and small minded ... he's acting right now as if he won the election by a landslide, which he clearly did not no matter what the eventual outcome....."
Sorry, but this is BS in my opinion. Bush has made a concerted effort to remain in the background during this past 2 week period, making just minimal appearances and usually only in direct response to Gore.
Gore, on the other hand, is making the rounds like anybody's favorite squeeze. Yesterday, he hit the major networks on no less than 3 shows. Monday night, he came on before football. Remember?
Bush is doing nothing less than preparing to take the reins if that is the outcome. To accuse him of being power hungry or behaving in an inappropriate manner is a pure spinning pile of BS. Would you have the president-elect, whomever it is, do nothing to prepare for the day the keys are handed over? Do you think it's a simple uncomplicated process? Do you think Gore is not doing the same, even with his 8 year home field advantage?
Thanks for you posts, and Good Luck,
