A Study In Contrasts III
In the depths of the Depression, Franklin Roosevelt inspired the nation when he said, "The only thing
Sling and Arrows on a roll tonight!we have to fear is fear itself." Today, we say the only thing we have to fear is four more years of George Bush.It's more than appropriate, it's necessary that even in times of crisis we have these contests and engage in spirited disagreement over the shape and course of our government.The Republicans who spoke tonight were clear about who they view as their enemy. Earlier this month, the Democrats were equally clear. Unfortunately, they did not agree on who that enemy is.
We have nothing to fear from each other. We are arguing over the means to better secure our freedom and support the general welfare.
But it should remain an argument among friends who share an unshaken belief in our great cause and in the goodness of each other.
We are Americans first, Americans last, and Americans always.
The level of hate and Anti-Americanism the Democrats are spewing is only going to hurt them with real Americans! You can't constantly denigrate us and have us support you.
