Could bush get cheap votes as a show of support?

This is just speculation, but if the United States is involved in another bush led "conflict" by election time, don't you think the shrub would get tons of votes from mindless people who just want to "support our nation" and will try to keep him in office just as a show of support? I know for a fact there are plenty of people in this nation who would vote bush for that reason alone, just to show support, and there's also plenty of people who would do it that might otherwise vote for someone else if they did not feel the need to support our government. With this idea in mind, do you think the shrub might be a little more "pro-active" with other hostile nations, such as north korea, then he would be if there were no election coming up?

Of course... the rally effect is always there. Bush's people will manipulate Americans in every way possible to swing their votes his way.

Skikid, I've said this many times... remember the 1992 election? Bush's daddy got trounced by a nobody Governor and his poll numbers were 20 points HIGHER than "Shrub"'s were right about now with the election coming up. Don't expect to see the Neo-Cons on the way out in 04.

While I agree with you that Bush, the first was sitting pretty, and still lost the election, the were different circumstances. Bush 1 didn't have 9-11 to rally behind.

I just think it will be very difficult for the Dems.

Good points... I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
