If Bush had been allowed to win another term as President, then:

We would have 150,000 troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Guantanamo Bay would be open.

There would be no public option on healthcare, and policy costs would continue to rise.

Seniors would face cuts in Social Security and Medicare benefits.

DADT would be Pentagon policy.

Wall Street would get all the tax breaks they wanted, paid for by the middle class.

The Patriot Act wouldn’t be repealed.

There would be no chance of passing Card Check.

Ben Bernacke would be Fed Chairman.

The New Democrat Coalition would run Congress behind the scenes.

Gates would be Defense Secretary.

The Bush tax cuts for the wealthy would be extended.

I’m so glad I picked the candidate for hope and change.
