I heard a staggering collection of impressive economic statistics today. In the three years since 9/11, the U.S. economy has set some astonishing records. The old Republican success story of economic prosperity, right? Not exactly. We have struggled mightily these past three years, though some would have us forget that fact.
The illusion being peddled by the Kerry Democrats, that we can return to the days when terrorism was a "nuisance," and mutual assured destruction held in balance all the forces of global destruction, is just that – an illusion. Prosperity may still be possible, and there may be time to debate domestic programs such as health care and tort reform, but without the continued, aggressive suppression of international terrorism, these promises and programs will mean absolutely nothing.
John Kerry has done nothing to convince me that he understands any of this.
George W. Bush has not only convinced me, he has taught me the value of moral courage.
Soon - very soon - those who literally wish us dead will have weapons of mass destruction to use in their campaign of asymmetrical warfare. We do not have the luxury of time to hold summits and discuss new plans. The handwriting has been on the wall for a very long time, and some of us can read the message.
Update: Thanks to all who have responded thus far. Your comments, pro or con, are appreciated; however, this blog will not be used as a sounding board for Michael Moore-style propaganda. Well-expressed opinions are always welcome, but unfounded rumor is not. Thank you.
