Today an open letter from Michael Moore to George W. Bush arrived in my inbox. Besides forgiving him his unability to help the people in New Orleans he also encourages him to stay on track and ignore all those signs that Global Warning is the source of South-East US' balefulness.
Come on scientific folks, now's the time to dig up your old studies and warnings about ecological consequences of "Americas Way of Life" and bring it to peoples attention.
Last 24 hours have been a bit an up&down of my expectations from the US elections.
Yesterday morning I was quite sure that Kerry would make the race, into the evening I`ve been sitting in a depressed mood convinced that Bush will win.
Into the night my hopes for Kerry rose again and my bet would have gone on him again.
Today morning this was cut down by the news that Bush got Florida and was far ahead of Kerry, keeping that mood until around 10 a.m. Then my hopes went up again when Ohio delayed its result.
Currently it`s going down again and calming on an unsure niveau because I think chances are not very high that Kerry can pick up Ohio through the outstanding votes...
One thought flew through my head two days ago:
What if the Bush administration had already catched Bin Ladin and is just keeping the truth from publicity so that they can use him as a "ghost of terrorism" to manipulate the people as they wish with fear and uncertainty?
The appearance of Bin Ladin videos often when Bush is under hard pressure strengthens my suspicion...
I like this speech very much because it summarizes Bushs effects on America and the world and how Kerry wants to face them.
Just one note.
Clinton says at the beginning of his speech: "... Therefore, we Democrats will bring the American people a positive campaign, arguing not who?s good and who?s bad, but what is the best way to build the safe, prosperous world our children deserve...".
But later then he counts up point by point what Bush had done in the past and what was the result of his actions.
But this is my only point critic, the rest is just great.
I hope, that this convention gives Kerry the boost to take over the presidential role in autumn and do a good for the whole world.
