I keep hearing Democrats flinging unsubstantiated charges that George Bush was A.W.O.L thirty years ago. They seem to be saying by this that our armed forces would never follow such a man in a serious military action like, for example, overthrowing an evil regime and freeing an entire population in Afghanistan. They are definitely saying the armed forces would never follow Bush in something so daunting and complex as removing a militarily powerful dictator like Saddam Hussein and his supremely corrupt regime and then, under his leadership, act as an exemplary police force while rebuilding the country of Iraq.
I keep hearing about "A.W.O.L George" but I don't hear anything from the Democrats about how they would prosecute the war on terror. Would there be a war on terror? What things would they do differently? What things would they do the same? Is there anything about the war on terror that they think has gone well? What kinds of things would they have to go to the U.N. about. Would they be able to stand up and make the decision to proceed without the U.N.'s approval if the time came. Are there any circumstances which would tell them that the time had come? What are they? If they tell North Korea that they must give up their nuclear weapons or they will face dire consequences, will they believe them? Why?
I keep hearing about how George, the "smirk monkey," is too stupid to manage anything as complicated as American foreign policy. Certainly no regime as entrenched in self-serving corruption as deeply as Libya would give up their weapons of mass destruction because of his steadfast forign policy. Bush would definitely not be able to build one of the largest collations in history to attack a Middle Eastern nation. He is definitely too stupid to turn the economy around after the Clinton/Gore recession. Isn't it cute that he thinks fair and even tax cuts, across the board for all taxpayers, and targeted tax incentives for business could spur the economy?
I keep hearing about dumb George and his dumb ideas but I don't hear anything from the Democrats about how they would spur the economy. I don't hear them telling us how they would have talked Libya out of their weapons without the real and credible threat of consequences. I hear them saying that stupid George's stupid tax cuts were BAD and MUST BE REPEALED, but I don't really think even they believe that.
What I want to know is what do they believe? What will they do? I'm tired of hearing the same old junk they've been pushing since Al Gore's campaign. I don't think anyone outside of the Democratic faithful really buys it anyway. It's time to for them to stop peddling lies and fess up. It's time for them to tell us what they're going to do.
