Our President

The convention is over, the Democratic opponent is sniping but I prefer to recall some of the highlights of the RNC. I especially liked Zell Millers comment,"I knocked on the door of this man's soul and found somebody home..." and then Arnold Schwarzenegger's "George Bush is a leader who doesn't flinch, doesn't waiver, does not back down. My fellow Americans, make no mistake about it: terrorism is more insidious than communism, because it yearns to destroy not just the individual, but the entire international order. The President didn't go into Iraq because the polls told him it was popular. As a matter of fact, the polls said just the opposite. But leadership isn't about polls. It's about making decisions you think are right and then standing behind those decisions. That's why America is safer with George W. Bush as President."
It looks like the post-convention bounce will be a pretty good one. I think that the long term negativity of the left will be the thing that defeats Kerry. I do not think the American people are as stupid as MMoore would lead others to believe. The non-stop hate messages from the left 527s, the whining when one small group was anti-Kerry, the threats of lawsuits, the open attempts to deprive the Swiftboat Vets their right to free speech surely cannot be seen as the tactics of a worthy leader.
