Hewitt Symposium - Why vote for Bush?
Hugh Hewitt has called for a symposium discussing Why Bush should be re-elected, and I've decided to participate.
The President should be re-elected because he will continue to take the fight to the terrorists until they are utterly defeated and he will promote democracy in the Middle East. This is the critical issue of this campaign. If we don't defeat terrorism and change the politics of the Middle East, issues such as health care costs, prescription drugs, social security reform, tort reform, tax reform and judicial appointments won't matter.
John Kerry has made it very clear that his view of terrorism is that it needs to be controlled by law enforcement and dealt with in the courts - the European view. He has expressed greater concern for the image of America than for the safety of America.
At one time, the British Empire ruled the world. By World War II, only the stubbornness and courage of Winston Churchill saved the British from Hitler's iron fist. It will take steely stubbornness and steadfast courage to defeat terrorism. George Bush has displayed the stubbornness to ignore the polls, ignore hypocritical European outrage, ignore the biased, liberal media, ignore fierce (and often false) criticism and forge ahead with the fight.
We do not need a politician as President. We need a leader. George Bush is a leader.
