Personally, I think the 2004 campaign most resembles 1948. Just as Harry Truman had begun to wage the Cold War and formulated the Truman Doctrine, President Bush is waging the War on Terror with the Bush Doctrine. As Truman engaged in nation-building in Europe, Bush is engaged in nation building in the Middle-East. As in 1948, The domestic political opposition is supposedly energized and all the talk is about how the president could be defeated. However, the president isnt afraid to point out his opponents flaws (Give em hell, Harry!) and wins because people see him as a simple man, but a well-intentioned, trustworthy leader in a historic time.-- PoliPundit
That's what he thinks - but I had this strange thought last night that will drive the already loonie liberals crazy, see if you can follow me here:
The comparisons between John F. Kennedy and George W. Bush:
- Both men were elected in the closest elections in their century
- Both men believed in personal responsibility
- Both men dramatically lowered taxes which lead to a economic growth
- Both men believed in a strong offense as the best defense to protect the US
- Both men were met with unprecedented threats and challenges to national security
- Both men fought against the bureaucratic structures that were so set in their ways they would sabotage those changes to keep the status quo
- Both men challenged world opinion in bold military steps
- Both men united the world against a common enemy
- Both men upset the apple cart making them hated by various factions
One was assassinated by what the vast majority of the world believe was a conspiracy of the corrupt rich and powerful in an attempt to maintain that wealth and power. They have yet to be identified.
The other has had repeated attempts to assassinate him politically by what could only be called a conspiracy of the corrupt rich and powerful in an attempt to maintain that wealth and power! They are the UN, the IAEA, the media, and the Lie-N-Hype 9/11 Moore-on's!
(I know you can think of more - add them to the Drive Loonie Liberal's Crazy list by clicking on the comments link at the end of this post!)
See what can happen when that apple cart is disturbed! But can you honestly say that the changed underway now - painful to those corrupted - is not for the better just as they were in Kennedy's day?
A HUGE difference between then and now -the Democrats of today and the Republicans of yesterday - is illustrated by the following article by The Washington Times. This story confirms the depths to which the left has sunk.
John Kerry and the Lie-N-Hype Moore-on's have the blood of Americans and Iraqis on their hands! They have actively positioning the Democratic party and the entire left on the side of those who's apple cart was dumped over for political gain! This is nothing short of treason in a time of war!!!
Here are excerpts - read the whole thing!
BAGHDAD Leaders and supporters of the anti-U.S. insurgency say their attacks in recent weeks have a clear objective: The greater the violence, the greater the chances that President Bush will be defeated on Tuesday and the Americans will go home.
"If the U.S. Army suffered numerous humiliating losses, [Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John] Kerry would emerge as the superman of the American people," said Mohammad Amin Bashar, a leader of the Muslim Scholars Association, a hard-line clerical group that vocally supports the resistance. ...........................
"American elections and Iraq are linked tightly together," he told a Fallujah-based Iraqi reporter. "We've got to work to change the election, and we've done so. With our strikes, we've dragged Bush into the mud."......................
The most pro-Kerry, he said, are the former Saddam Hussein loyalists Ba'ath Party members and others who think Washington might scale back its ambitions for Iraq if Mr. Kerry wins, allowing them to re-enter civic life. ..........................
"They say there are 1,100 dead soldiers. That means 1,100 families hold grudges against Bush and hate him. There are 6,000 families whose sons were injured who hate Bush and will not re-elect him."
Now, who did you say you wanted to vote for, of course you have to be careful or you may end up getting your windows shot out by the loonie lefties out there so don't tell the pollsters! However when you get in that booth make sure you remember who's apple cart you want to help push!
