~ President Bush
I only caught about 5 minutes. It was where Bush came out and destroyed the arguments for setting a timetable or wantonly throwing troops at Iraq. If the whole speech was like that, he kicked ass.
Seems to be, Jeff.
AKA Lori Byrd is happy:
Good tips get listened to:
Bush certainly has courage. It takes a strong leader to journey to one of the nation's largest military bases and promise the assembled troops that more of them were going to die. With no end in site.
He isnt telling them they are going to die for their country. He is telling them to go make the other side die for his.
They're frickin' SOLDIERS!!! Have you ever actually met a soldier? Unless you catch somebody who joined assuming he would get a job and a free education without actually having to fight, you'll find that the soldiers you are so vehemently trying to "protect" would bust you up for the effort more likely than thank you. True soldiers, like my uncle, my grandfather, and several of my friends, are not really irritated that they have to risk their lives. That's what they signed up for and they're proud to do it. Now, like anybody else, they don't want to die, but they'd rather die than stand back and watch as somebody like Saddam kills countless others. The mentality of a soldier is sacrifice, determination, and defense of the weak and the innocent, and these speeches you make about not doing anything about anything with the military so you can "spare their lives" will be more likely to get you a black eye than a pat on the back.
You'd think, since Gabby is one of the 46% or so who voted for Kerry, and because of that believes that Bush doesn't have a "mandate" from the people...she would look to the numbers of military members who voted for Bush. I believe they were up close to 80%.
You may not believe that Bush has a mandate from the US as a whole, Gabby...but the vast majority of US military member support and believe in this President.
