GW really had that folksy charm, didn't he? People wanted to get a beer with him and thought he was an alright dude so that made up for all the war crimes and awful shit he signed off on while president.

Cool, cool, cool, so very cool.

It was more about the “Patriotism” the country was still feeling, and the fact that the Iraq War seemed to be going well.

This. He was a "wartime President" and that carried his votes. And in 2004 we still had no idea there were no WMDs in Iraq (there was still a decent sized pushback as people thought it distracted from the actual War in Afghanistan).

It was simply a "don't rock the boat" scenario; plus that Swiftboat BS and some Voting Law shenanigans didn't help.
