From Hugh Hewitt:
I hope the president brushes aside most questions on domestic issues tomorrow night and next week in order to make this point again and again: The presidential and congressional elections are, collectively, a referendum on how the United States is going to respond to terrorists and the nations that harbor, fund, or in any way cooperate with them. A sweeping win for Bush and Republican candidates for the Senate will send a clear message of our determination to our enemies that an aggressive war on terror has been put to the people and endorsed.
This observation is not an attack of Kerry's patriotism or the patriotism of those who support him. It is an analysis of the consequences of the choices they have made in this campaign. Stanley Baldwin and Neville Chamberlain did not intend for Hitler to rise or metastasize into the monster he became, or to cause ruin and woe to the cities and people of Great Britain. They were patriots. They were also, both of them and those who supported them, terribly, horribly wrong, and the consequences of that error was the near destruction of their nation and the murder of millions.
