I actually have more concern over his domestic political acumen.
Just for once I'd like to see all the "pundits" be thankful for the excellence of our President instead of thinking a compliment will lower their credibility.
Just for once I'd like to see all the "pundits" declare that the man in charge is doing a great job and that because of their limited knowledge they have nothing to say other than that we must support our President.
Alas, it will never happen, even at this precious week of Thanksgiving, even when the pundits have been once again proven so unmistakenly ignorant, short-sighted, simple-minded and wrong. For as the scriptures declare in Proverbs 27:22, "Though you grind a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with crushed grain, Yet his foolishness will not depart from him."
So therefore, let those of us who know better, focus on the good, giving thanks to God for blessing he has given us of President Bush, and rejoicing in the expectation of future successes.
Watching DERsjerk on CNN whining about Bush's decision on Military Tribunals!
As usual, Sullivan's work is creative, sometimes funny, and right on the mark. Little of this can be used on the air, but it is a piece you should read.
.. you have Cheney's chum Donald Rumsfeld, the indefatigable and hilariously frank secretary of defense. Rumsfeld has been a consistent supporter of decisive military action, of war as an instrument of diplomacy...
President Bush deserves much credit for selecting this man RUMSFELD for THIS job. He's got the moxey and the knowledge. I bet he and Cheney (my two favorite HAWKS) are on the phone constantly, keeping our nation from more harm.
Well, if it was so easy, why didn't (or couldn't?) Clinton do it? If the left says it is easy, they condemn Clinton to being pretty incompetent, right? Right!!
That's a pretty amazing statement.
I will agree with the Dims that any idiot could have managed that EP-3E incident with China, all Bush did was stay firm and cautious (of course, the Dims criticized Bush during the crisis, but that's because they're mo-rons of the first order, they're stupider than just "any idiot.")
But this situation--it's very different. It's incredibly complex, he's got a few strong allies, a few friends, and a huge number of potential allies/enemies, especially in the Arab world, where we need allies the most. Bush has managed to make friends with Russia, keep China out of the conflict (so far), he's managed to cement ties with England, make France look bad, get Musharraf to play ball, gotten the Northern Alliance to act somewhat civilized, and gotten advisors to lead their ragtag army into battle successfully, to liberate several major cities from the extreme oppression of the Taliban, to give greater rights to the Afghans of both genders, he's eliminated many top Al-Quaeda commanders, he's decimated and assimilated the once-thought-to-be-mighty Taliban--he's even gotten the price of oil to fall while so many of the OPEC countries are filled with rage towards us. That's a pretty big set of achievements, for a "dunce."
Why do you think anyone cares what you think? This thread isn't about domestic policy.
Your comment adds nothing to the discussion. You offer nothing of any value.
Looking at your past posts, it quickly becomes obvious that you are not familiar with the issues and do not have anything original to contribute.
Come back when you grow up.
