Maybe Bush Got It Right
"Maybe President Bush is a lot smarter than the liberals think.
This Christmas and New Year holiday season, as families got together, they talked of the news of the day. Bush has been “outed” by some shameless liberals for taking signals from overseas calls into the United States to people of question, without a court warrant.
Funny, I remember the Iranian hostage crisis and the granddaddy liberal of the Democrats, Jimmy Carter, [saying something similar]. Only, as a Democrat, he was praised and protected. He was found to be legal. No conservatives were screaming foul because our government agencies were trying to protect us.
Is it now so different? We are at war with an enemy that professes death to us, with dispatch. The only thing really different is there’s a Republican in the White House. Are the Democrats just feckless? Do they really want to make us all targets while pursing that liberal agenda?
Politics is no longer a local issue, it is global. If you don’t believe that, talk to any present or past military member. I have seen the decades of liberal pathological behavior make America appear weak in the eyes of the world. The liberals have made us all targets!
Maybe Bush was brilliant. Family conversations this Christmas will have profound effect this year. For your safety and peace of mind, register and vote. When more average Americans decide to vote, our leaders will reflect those values. Maybe Bush got this season right.
