|"White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card was outraged that the TV networks refused to declare Bush the winner on Election Night, even after all the votes were counted in the pivotal state Ohio and it became obvious Kerry could not win.|
'Some of the talking heads,' Card said, 'were rooting for a crisis in Ohio. It wasn't just that they were afraid to admit we had won.'
Card became particularly incensed when Bush's Ohio lead reached 120,000 votes, which was mathematically insurmountable.
'Nobody wanted to call it so that we had won,' he said. 'It was like, c'mon, are they just afraid to say it?'"
