I am so tired of hearing all the Bush bashing. Everything the man does, according to many of you, is wrong. Strangely, many of you who now criticize the President, were ardent fans of the man just a few short months ago.
Make no mistake. The United States is at war. We are in the midst of World War III, but many of you are completely unaware. It is testament to the greatness of George W. Bush and his Administration that so many of you have become disenchanted with the White House. It is the high rate of success of the Administration that has allowed most of the country to forget about the all-too-real threats that America faces from the radical Muslims around the world.
It is precisely because of the counter-terrorism tactics undertaken by the Bush Administration that I am posting these comments tonight. Otherwise, Southern California, most certainly a prime target of al Qaeda, might very well be long gone.
The NSA wiretapping program? Totally 'warranted.' And forget the lies you have been told by the Leftist, biased American-in-name-only press corps, that tell you that the NSA and the Administration are conducting 'domestic wiretapping.' It's not true.
No WMD in Iraq? It's not true. They've already found a great deal of WMD in-country, and, of course, during the run-up to invasion, there was a six month window where we wasted time at the U.N., getting those worthless resolutions, when Hussein very logically (and easily) could have moved Iraq's weapons to Syria. And that American-in-name-only-press has not reported that claims by a former Iraqi general, Georges Sada, who charges just that in a new book, "Saddam's Secrets."
Everything occurring on the ground today-- in 14 out of 18 provinces--in Iraq is mostly positive. But good news isn't particularly sexy news and nothing that could ever be defined as 'good news' for President Bush will ever be reported. Sad but true. All the business, all the jobs created, all the women who now can work and go to school and vote, all the optimism of the Iraqi people for the future, none of it is ever reported by the 'objective' American media.
Forget that bogus story about the Federal Government's response to Hurricane Katrina being 'slow,' because that isn't true, either. The bad preparation, the slow reaction, the poor decisions made on the ground in Louisiana is the reason that New Orleans was decimated by the storm.
I have three words for all of you who believe that Katrina was Bush's fault: Alabama and Mississippi.
All of these erroneous stories being told, is it really a surprise that the President is unpopular and hovering around 40% in opinion polling?
Which brings me to another story--those pesky, faulty, dishonest polls. When one of the news organizations releases a poll, it is very important that you, before taking the poll seriously, determine whether or not the poll was taken with a fair, representative sample of likely voters. Most polls tilt the sample heavily to one side or the other, which means from the start that the poll results will be skewed to one particular view or another. And most polls sample registered voters, not LIKELY voters. That is a big difference because it is the likely voters who vote. The registered voters? Not so much.
Not that President Bush much cares about any of this crap. He's doing his job--a great job. He's got little to no interest in what anyone thinks of him, which I find totally refreshing. He's not a politician.
The bottom line, as I see it, is that in this time of international unrest, it is extremely important that every American supports President Bush. I don't care if you personally disagree with the man or his policies. The fact is, dissent at this time, while important, can (and should) be done privately. When you or anyone you know publicly rips Bush, it weakens us in the eyes of the international community. And, most importantly, in the eyes of our enemies.
If you aren't behind Bush and your country in this time in our history, then it means that you are against Bush, against your country, against your troops. It's very simple and true. And it's not debatable.
There's plenty of time to debate the merits of policy, the opinion of war, the opinion of Administration policy. But not now. If you are a Bush critic, understand that you are being anti-American and that you are very much aiding and abetting our enemies around the world.
Supporting your President at this time doesn't necessarily mean that you support each and every policy the President advocates. It simply means that you support your country, your troops, your way of life. It also means that you are being a good American.
Support your President.
