Bush Fights Back

I am pumped folks. I haven’t been this happy since the snowboarding season started back in October. I could not have had a better subject for my one-year post than this – Bush fights back.

The War on Terrorism has received much abuse by those who wish our country ill, namely liberals. They have been undermining, distorting, and out-right lying about the war’s goals and reasons for existence. Liberals have been the greatest allies the terrorists could have ever prayed for.

President Bush, of course, has done a lousy job defending the War on Terrorism and its Afghanistan and Iraqi theaters. That, however, is going to change. President Bush has finally fought back and has attacked those who are attacking America, namely liberals.

In a powerful speech to veterans on a day that all Americans should take time to remember, Veterans Day, President Bush laid out his view of the past few years. He outlined the dangers terrorists present and how America has been fighting them with global support from everyone except countries who are in lockdown due to riots. I have highlighted in blue the key points in this excerpt (for those of you who don’t want to read the whole thing).

(Bush) While it's perfectly legitimate to criticize my decision or the conduct of the war, it is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how that war began. Some Democrats and anti-war critics are now claiming we manipulated the intelligence and misled the American people about why we went to war. These critics are fully aware that a bipartisan Senate investigation found no evidence of political pressure to change the intelligence community's judgments related to Iraq's weapons programs.

They also know that intelligence agencies from around the world agreed with our assessment of Saddam Hussein. They know the United Nations passed more than a dozen resolutions citing his development and possession of weapons of mass destruction. And many of these critics supported my opponent during the last election, who explained his position to support the resolution in the Congress this way: "When I vote to give the President of the United States the authority to use force, if necessary, to disarm Saddam Hussein, it is because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a threat, and a grave threat, to our security." That's why more than a hundred Democrats in the House and the Senate -- who had access to the same intelligence -- voted to support removing Saddam Hussein from power.

The stakes in the global war on terror are too high, and the national interest is too important, for politicians to throw out false charges. These baseless attacks send the wrong signal to our troops and to an enemy that is questioning America's will. As our troops fight a ruthless enemy determined to destroy our way of life, they deserve to know that their elected leaders who voted to send them to war continue to stand behind them. Our troops deserve to know that this support will remain firm when the going gets tough. And our troops deserve to know that whatever our differences in Washington, our will is strong, our nation is united, and we will settle for nothing less than victory.

That small excerpt is what Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingram, Hugh Hewitt, Matt Drudge, Michael Medved, Ann Coulter, etc. have been proclaiming for years, and finally Bush has come out to defend these decisions, provide reasons for safe-guarding America and for annihilating murdering butchers known as Islamic terrorists (to the Left in America they are known as Freedom Fighters of course).

There is no reason for me to say anymore. In fact, if President Bush keeps this up, there won’t be much need for the conservative media to keep saying these things. The Left won’t be able to lie to the American people much longer if Bush continues to defend his correct actions.

That is another important lesson from the Conservative Textbook curriculum.
