I'm sorry, but I have decided that I cannot vote for a man who is incompetent, shows poor judgment & leadership skills, and lacks intellectual curiosity. This is why I am voting for President Bush. It seems that the latest talking points sent down by the Democratic party to describe President Bush are "incompetent, poor judgment & leadership skills, inexperience," & "a lack of intellectual curiosity." Well, sadly for them it turns out that they, once again, have reversed the truth and are engaging in classic Freudian projection. They are trying to sell the American people a bad bill of goods, filled with lies & propaganda. I know I could take up everyones day with examples of Kerry being the true symbol of their charges, but let's just hit a few. Poor Judgment: In addition to fighting, tooth & nail, ANY attempt to fund the Contras in the early 80's, John Kerry not only supported & defended Nicaraguan dictator Daniel Ortega, he actually flew to meet with him in Nicaragua. Upon his return, Kerry could not help but prattle on & on about what a great leader Ortega was, and demand that Reagan & Republicans stop calling Ortega a communist & a pawn of the Soviet Union. Not a week later did Ortega fly to Moscow and receive millions & millions in filthy commie money & aid. If this isn't enough poor judgment, let's look at his North Korean fiasco. Just as all other Democrats & members of the LMM hailed Clinton's "historic peace initiative" with North Korea, John Kerry could not contain himself in his praise for finally ending the nuclear threat from North Korea. However, President Bush, thank Joss, showed far better judgment. In his now-famous State of the Union address, Bush declared North Korea to be a part of the "Axis of Evil." Just as liberals became apoplectic when Reagan CORRECTLY called the former Soviet Union an "Evil Empire," Kerry was one of the many liberal sheep to castigate President Bush for eroneously attacking North Korea, declaring that he, Bush, was undermining the great peace which Clinton gave to us. Well, before Kerry & other liberals could get into full Bush-bashing mode, Kim Jong Il announced to the world that they were now the proud owners of 6 or more nuclear weapons. Lack of intellectual curiosity: To me, the sign of an intellectually curious & sound individual is someone who reads up on a subject, indagates the specifics, weighs the options, and makes a clear & concise decision. Though some might disagree with Bush's policies, they CANNOT say that he is indecisive. Kerry, on the other hand, cannot make up his mind on ANY subject. He cannot stick to ANY of his numerous murky, ever-changing positions. Whether this is a sign of ignorance of the issues, having not done the necessary homework to reach a firm position, or a sign that he is just intellectually lazy, it is obvious that he, Kerry, is a man with very little intellectual curiosity. Inexperience: Without even touching on his flip-flopping, let's just keep it brief: Kerry is a senator. He hasn't even been a governor, someone soley responsible for the charge of leading an entire state. Bush, conversely, has been BOTH a successful governor AND president. Incompetence & lack of leadership: President Bush has pulled us out of the Clinton recession, giving us what is now a BOOMING economy. President Bush pulled us out of the disastrous Kyoto Treaty & reversed our policy of ignoring the growing threat from North Korea. Bush saw us through 9/11, the worst terror attack ever brought to our shores. He took a war, not a battery of arrest warrants, to the barbaric terrorists who hit us. He decimated the Taliban; has ripped Al Qaeda into little, though still dangerous, threads; he took out Iraq as a threat, deposed & imprisoned Saddam, killed his two thug sons, and has liberated the Iraqi people; and Bush's policies have forced Libya to open its doors & disavow its desire to join in with the terrorists. President Bush has crushed oppression, freed over 50 million people, and his war on terror is transforming the Middle East, just as Reagan's policies, despite liberals, freed the Russian people & Eastern Europe, thus making the world a new, safer world. [Side Note: If anyone saw President Bush answer the LMM's accusatory questions today, you can take heart that our boy is hitting full stride. I am sure that Kerry, Mr. Debate Club, is pissing his pants at the looming prospect of upcoming debates. If he isn't, he needs to call the asylum & ask poor Al Gore what fate awaits him.] Conversely, beyond his disastrous, anti-American, & inconsistent voting record, Kerry...........well, he can't even decide whether or not he owns an SUV! Since we Republicans, unlike Democrats, are NOT sheep, I really frown upon talking points & marching orders, not to mention being on the defensive. However, I am fed up & I will make the exception, THIS TIME: Whenever you are arguing with liberals, writing out your own thoughts on politics, or just e-mailing Democrats in Congress & members of the LMM, I implore you to turn their words around on them. I implore you to point out that their terms like "incompetence" & "lack of intellectual curiosity" actually describe Kerry, certainly not President Bush. Also, I have taken a special interest in Chris Matthews, and I regularly e-mail him. I ask him why he only has liberals on his Sunday panels. I ask him why he is so scared to have Ann Coulter on his shows- instead of having safe, turncoat Republicans like McCain. We might not be able to dictate the LMM/Democratic party talking points attack machine, but we need to be more proactive, far more aggressive, and we need not be afraid of embracing the hate, the hate which is their bread & butter. BRING IT ON!!!!!!! People.......... We are in VERY dangerous & uncertain times, and we cannot allow our president & our country to be attacked by terrorist sympathizers, just as they were communists or fellow travelers back in the day. We aren't talking about what percentage of growth should be mandated for certain social programs. We aren't debating the finer points of baseline budgeting or economic theories. We aren't even discussing heated topics like abortion and gun control. WE ARE IN A WAR AGAINST TERROR! We cannot allow a party which calls Hamas terrorists "soldiers," calls terrorists "sort of terrorists," and claims that the "war on terror is exaggerated" to wrest control of OUR country from us. We need a president who is competent, experienced, shows good judgment, and is intellectually curious. Therefore, we MUST re-elect President Bush!
