After Boston

After Boston.... John F. Kerry didn't get a bounce out of his convention. As I surmised in my previous post, case? What case? Their candidate gave a speech that sucked and he didn't close the deal with the American people. The latest Gallup Poll finds President Bush out in front by six points. But this is no time for the President to rest on his laurels. August will be a month in which he will have to let the American people know his record and on it, tell them why he deserves to be elected to a second term in the White House. Normally this is the month official Washington goes on vacation. Not this year. We are not living in an ordinary time. There are great dangers besetting the country and we could win the War On Terror but for the lack of national unity at home. We're a far different country from the one we used to live in - consider how united we were during World War II and look at the absence of agreement on whether 9/11 even happened. The President's conduct of his campaign over the next few months and the American people's reaction to it will tell us if the Lunatic Left has been decisively defeated. Our future as a nation depends on what happens in November.

Case? What Case

My first blog.... its Friday and its a very normal weekend. The Democrats have found the just-released 9/11 Commission Report didn't give them the political ammunition they were looking for against President Bush. So there's no lead in to their convention in Boston on Monday. Its a big let down from several months of sustained attacks that blamed the President for sleeping through 9/11, to being too aggressive in responding to the terrorist attacks, and to failing to cater to the UN, Jacques Chirac, Gerhard Schroeder and Vladimir Putin. All of these lines were inconsistent and contradictory. They found their climax in the Michael Moore feature, Farenheit 9/11,  in which the President gets blamed for being too cozy with the Saudis, for profiting in Afghanistan with Unocal, and for getting bogged down in Iraq.  There are charges that can't be verified and in the Moore picture, a view of the Administration's policies that are too absurd too be believable. The Democrats wanted to have a solid case to make against the President on national security and they find themselves instead of arguing John F. Kerry deserves to be President on the basis of his credentials in Vietnam! I think Americans want to know how their President is going to protect our country in the future. Its still a dangerous world out there.
