President Bush gave a great speech this evening.
“Do not give in to despair,” he said. “Do not give up,” he said.
And the Left opines that, on average, the United States must withdraw, it must conclude, name a date, conclude it.
What is wrong with the United States winning? Why cannot the United States continue until the mission is completed?
And the answers are: nothing and yes, we can. The Left can’t perceive these accomplishments, or, does but doesn’t care; either way, they are the cacophony that attempts to defeat the possible. What emerges loud and clear from the Left tonight is that they cannot perceive the very real possibility that, without democracy underway as a process of cultural and political change in the Middle East, the wreckage that is present there and has intruded into our country in theory — with the terrible exception of the reality of 09/11 — very well may occur in the United States if not the entirety of North America.
Thank you, President Bush. You have my support. And to Iraq, you also have my congratulations. For the United States Democrats in Congress (for starters, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi), I have only shame.
