Quote of The Day (And Perhaps of The Year)

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.

Hey, for once we agree. That may in fact be the "....quote of the year" --if you put a words like "most absurd" or "most assinine" in front of it. Bush hasn't been right yet on anything when it comes to post 9/11 actions. If anything, the argument you should make for voting for Bush is something along the lines of "he can't be wrong all the time, can he?"

I think you miss the point, Chip. It is stated in a post further above:

"Kerry said something else today that shows even more clearly how little he understands about the world: 'It is completely consistent that you can see [Saddam] as a threat and deal with him realistically just as we saw the Soviet Union and China and others as threats and have dealt with them in other ways.' Kerry seems to be saying that since we didn’t have to invade the Soviet Union we shouldn’t have had to invade Iraq. Give me the old time deterrence, it’s good enough for me.

"If that is what Kerry was driving at then he learned nothing from September 11, 2001. That was the day every American with a healthy respect for the value of his own hide learned that we cannot deal with threats from the Arab world by relying on deterrence, international sanctions, summit meetings or gaseous statements of goodwill."

You are a fierce critic of GWB and delight to point out what you consider his idiocy. You never want to talk about what is to be done about Islamofascism. I personally believe Kerry, if elected, will get thousands of Americans killed right here in our country. I hope I am wrong, but that's what I think. To you, GWB can never do anything right. No, he has not conducted the Iraq war in the flawless manner in which Kerry and all other Democrats would conduct it (we all know, after all, that mistakes are never made in war, right?). But he is not afraid to use force, and the overwhelming evidence in John Kerry's record that he is. That's about all there is to it, as far as I am concerned.
