Well, it’s over and so I guess it’s time to try and predict what will happen next.
Here are my best/worst case scenarios for Bush’s next term
Bush decides to concentrate on uniting America, and reaching out to the world bringing love and happiness wherever he goes…
Iraq has successful elections - Most US, British, Polish etc. troops come home.
Bin Laden is captured/killed.
No more terrorist attacks.
Manages to control the debt.
Democrats win in 2008
Bush decides he can do whatever the hell he likes now so…
Invades any or all of the following: Syria, Iran, North Korea (and anyone else he feels like.) Israel gets involved and goodbye world.
The rest of the world get even more fed up with him and America in general.
Iraq goes belly-up
Another, even deadlier attack, on US soil.
The American debt increases ten-fold.
Oil reaches $75+ (take your pick)
Oil drilling starts in Alaska, and the environment in general is screwed.
Rights for gays, minorities are rolled back in US.
Uses the Republican majority to ban the two-term rule and stays President forever.
Obviously for certain people my worst case scenario is their best case and vice-versa.
