Bush: the right man at the right time

comment

How appropriate, that on the very day that al-Qaeda terrorists explode five deadly bombs in London, Mr. Baracco's opinion piece "The two wars of George W. Bush" (July 7-14) was blown to bits! His transparent and shallow assessment — that President Bush's war was only a ploy to defeat Democrats, which (he claims) could be validated by the low public opinion polls — couldn't have been more off the mark!

Radical Islamic extremists have indiscriminately killed innocent women and children across the globe ... and all Mr. Baracco can come up with is some petty, naive, unimaginative rant about partisan politics! Despite the never-ending liberal diatribe, our president has declared an undying resolve to rid the world of these parasites!

I, for one, am glad that we have a president like G.W. Bush; who, despite public opinion poll fluctuations, has the determination to say what he means, and do what he says! I go to bed at night knowing that there is a consistent and determined hand on America's foreign policy that will not bend to political pundits who throw hissy fits on a whim. War was declared upon the United States by the bin Ladens of the world years ago, and we better come to our senses as a nation! We're in the fight, whether we like it or not. But be confident in our fate, because we have reelected a trusted diplomat who is the right man, at the right time, to see our country through this War on Terror!
