Why Bush? - Guest Post

Filed under: — menk @ 10:19 am

A friend of mine responded to the following questions from a Kerry supporter:

Dave,

Why do you feel that Bush is the only one capable of defending America?

Do you consider his National Guard duty as indicative of his ability to defend America? Or is it his handling of terrorism-related intelligence prior to the September 11 attacks? (one would have to understand how much information Bush and the administration ignored prior to 9/11).

Signed: A Kerry Supporter

Dear Kerry Supporter,

I don’t consider military service a prerequisite for the office of president. I do consider it vital however to be able to:

  1. Pick a position that is good for the nation and lead in that direction
  2. Lead the nation instead of following the polls
  3. Not give public testimony that will cause injury & death to US Citizens (POWs in this case)
  4. Show leadership in past corporate/government positions

Kerry fails on all of these, - unless of course you celebrate Population Awareness Week at your house - that was 2 of the 5 bills he sponsored in 20 years. The other 3 are less important.

I don’t know that Bush is the ONLY one that could lead our nation, but that’s not the question next Tuesday. The question is who is BETTER to lead our nation, to protect our land and our families? That is an EASY question to answer. Kerry says he’ll “fight a smarter, more efficient war on terror.” He’s the same guy that voted to cut the IC budget by $6 billion, and half of our weapons systems. He can announce “I have a plan” all he wants, but his voting record shows the real plan and it’s not good for this country.

Bush put the welfare of the nation above his aspirations. He could have stopped at Afghanistan and been re-elected in a landslide, but he thought it was too important to our children to go after global terrorism and change the face of the Middle East. I don’t know if we will be able to change that ‘hell-hole’, but I admire the man for giving it our nation’s best efforts. History will judge if it worked, but there’s no denying he came up with a plan to prevent similar 9-11 events and carried it out. He didn’t choose to sit back and wait for the next attack.

Why would you think the Intelligence Community would “ignore” information that terrorists were going to use planes to blow up buildings? I work in that community - it didn’t happen that way. Yes you can “Monday-morning quarterback” the events all you want but the fact is that we didn’t have enough hard intellegence to predict and prevent that threat. Can we do a better job - yes! And we are. Was there incompetence - no!

Bottom line: Bush has proved he is a good leader. He chose a course of action to make the country safer - the number one priority of the president of these United States. Kerry has proved: he should be in Leavenworth for betraying his country in Viet Nam, he can’t lead the Senate, he can’t define a position on Iraq or Terrorism, he can’t stick to a position once he (temporarily) stumbles on one, he doesn’t have any CREDIBLE plans, and he is married to a witch.

There, now that you have everything you need, you can pull the lever for Bush next Tuesday.

Sincerely,

Dave Evans

Terrorist’s Choice

Filed under: — menk @ 10:48 am

The world appears focused on our upcoming Presidential election. In fact many Non-US Citizens want to influence the elections in one way or the other. But in soliciting the endorsement of Osama Bin Laden, John Kerry has gone way too far.

Misled by Bush?

Filed under: — menk @ 4:06 pm

One of the things that I hear most from Kerry supporters as we count down the the election is that ‘George Bush misled America convincing us to go to war in Iraq’. It certainly is a common theme for the Kerry-Edwards campaign to claim this, but how in fact could it be true?

There are two possibilities;

1) America’s pre-war intelligence was incorrect about the existence of WMD. All the meaningful analysis suggested that there were large caches of WMD in Iraq and this needed to be addressed quickly. In this case George Bush along with everyone else in the free world thought that Saddam Hussein possessed WMD and was a growing threat. So how; if this is true, did George Bush decieve the American public?

2) For some unfathomable reason the President knew that WMD did not exist in Iraq and told the American people that WMD were there to make a case for war. (This assumes our intelligence agencies knew no WMD were there and briefed the President accordingly.) This is the scenerio that John Kerry and John Edwards would have you believe. If this were in fact true (which has been contradicted by the Senate Intelligence Committee’s findings on Pre-War Intelligence) then how would John Kerry not have known about it at the time? He and John Edwards are members of the Intelligence commitee of the US Senate. This Senate Committee receives briefings similar to that which are delivered to the President. This fact makes it difficult for John Kerry to say that President Bush misled the nation as this would mean that He and John Edwards did likewise.

Now you will note that John Kerry and John Edwards rarely if ever attend Intelligence committee meetings (Kerry in fact has missed over 76% of the meetings during his tenure) so maybe they just missed the briefings to the committee that provided pre-war proof that no WMD existed in Iraq. More likely however this campaign theme “Bush misled America into War” is just one more false statement from this campaign of deception and untruths.

Political Ad about John Kerry

Filed under: — menk @ 9:47 pm

I ran across this post on a blog that I just had to share. The post is entitled ‘Hard Work”. It is a proposed ad about John Kerry that is based on the truth. I am also convinced an equally interesting ad could be crafted for John Edwards.

Scene 1 Audio: “John Kerry says he is qualified to be President because he likes hard work. Video: Pan photo of Kerry carrying Snowboard Text: “I welcome hard work, I like hard work.”

Scene 2 Audio: “However during his 20 years in the United States Senate, John Kerry sponsored only 8 bills, none of which promoted a major policy.” Video: Kerry looking stern while lecturing press at Senate press room lecturn Text: 20 Years in the Senate Sponsored only 8 bills - 5 Ceremonial bills - 2 Fishing & Marine Research bills - 1 Small Business Grants for Women

Scene 3 Audio: “John Kerry has criticized President Bush about his Medicare policies, however he sponsored ZERO bills to help improve Medicare. President Bush increased Medicare by XX.” Video: start with John Kerry lecturing someone again, then fade to Bush signing Medicare Bill in Rose Garden Text: Kerry Sponsored ZERO Medicare bills Pres. Bush increased Medicare by XX

Scene 4 Audio: “John Kerry has criticized President Bush concerning his handling of Sept 11 and Iraqi intelligence. However in his 8 years years on the Senate intelligence Committee, John Kerry skipped 76% of all committee meetings and also wanted to cut the Intelligence budget by XX. President Bush has increased the Intelligence budget by XX.” Video: Show Kerry’s empty seat in committee room Text: John Kerry skipped 76% of Intelligence Committee meetings President Bush bolstered Intelligence by XX

Audio: “Lastly, as one of the leading Veterans in the Congress, John Kerry has criticized President Bush for his handling of the veterans affairs and military personnel. But John Kerry, a veteran himself, has sponsored ZERO Veterans legislation and ZERO military compensation legislation. President Bush has increased veterans spending by XX and military compensation by XX Video: Pan photo of Kerry saluting at DNC fade to Bush in flight suit surrounded by sailors on the carrier Text: Veteran John Kerry sponsored ZERO Veterans bills President Bush increased Veterans spending by XX.

Scene 5 Audio: “John Kerry likes to say he enjoys hard work, but thats probably because he’s never had to do it. It makes you wonder what exactly was he doing during his 20 years in the Senate? Video: Kerry Windsurfing Text: What hard work HAS John Kerry done?

Someone out there want to make this for me??

John Kerry:Liar or Lame-o?

Filed under: — menk @ 10:03 pm

As we run up the 2004 presidential election, John Kerry continues to act indignant that the Bush campaign points out his total inability to have a consistent position on Iraq and other issues. In the second debate last Friday, John Kerry looked America in the eye and insisted, “Well, let me tell you straight up: I’ve never changed my mind about Iraq.”

John Kerry two faced

So what exactly is the history of positions that Mr. Kerry has taken on Iraq?

SEN. JOHN KERRY: “[I]t is something that we know-for instance, Saddam Hussein has used weapons of mass destruction against his own people, and there is some evidence of their efforts to try to secure these kinds of weapons and even test them.” (CBS “Face The Nation,” 9/23/01)

KERRY: “I think we clearly have to keep the pressure on terrorism globally. This doesn’t end with Afghanistan by any imagination. And I think the president has made that clear. I think we have made that clear. Terrorism is a global menace. It’s a scourge. And it is absolutely vital that we continue, for instance, Saddam Hussein.” (CNN’s “Larry King Live,” 12/14/01)

“If Saddam Hussein is unwilling to bend to the international community’s already existing order, then he will have invited enforcement …even if that enforcement is mostly at the hands of the United States, a right we retain even if the Security Council fails to act.” - (Sen. John Kerry, Op-Ed, “We Still Have A Choice On Iraq,” The New York Times, 9/6/02)

May - 2003 Kerry starts to lose traction in the Democratic primaries to Howard Dean. Howard bears down on Kerry’s support of the war. Kerry starts changing his retoric.

Democratic Debate 5/3/03

KERRY: “George, I said at the time I would have preferred if we had given diplomacy a greater opportunity, but I think it was the right decision to disarm Saddam Hussein, and when the President made the decision, I supported him, and I support the fact that we did disarm him.”

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: “Now, Governor Dean, you’ve criticized Senator Kerry on the campaign trail saying he’s tried to have it both ways on the issue of Iraq. Was that answer clear enough for you?”

FORMER GOV. HOWARD DEAN (D-VT): “[I] think this was the wrong war at the wrong time …” (ABC News Democrat Presidential Candidates Debate, Columbia, SC, 5/3/03)

so that’s what’s happening now. John Kerry is actually Howard Dean in disguise!

Throughout the remainder of 2003 Howard Dean continues to hammer on Kerry for supporting the war until . .

MSNBC’S CHRIS MATTHEWS: “Are you one of the anti-war candidates?”

KERRY: “I am - Yeah.” (MSNBC�s “Hardball,” 1/6/04)

KERRY: “Well, let me tell you straight up: I’ve never changed my mind about Iraq.” (Presidential debate 10/8/04)

So we see a clear pattern here with John Kerry either he is a bald faced liar or so mentally crippled he doesn’t know he is ‘shape-shifting’. Personally I believe his strategy is to tell people what you think they want to hear and insist that you never had any other position and pray they don’t actually do the research to learn you are lying to them.

John Kerry - Liar or Lame-o you decide but, in either case he cannot be allowed to run this country.

If you are a die hard democrat and don’t believe me; view the video of the all these statements being made by John Kerry on television. Although John Kerry would like to believe you will just take ‘the crap he is shoveling’ at face value, you don’t have to. A record exists.
