With all the media hype about the upcoming elections it is clear to me that there is one thing lacking that has increased in its appearance in each passing year that President Bush is in office. From denying the President's appointments to the federal bench (based on idealolgy, not the record) to picking up on any and all news stories to twist them in such a way as to make it the responsibility of the President (as in he failed in some way to do something) to the outright calling the President disrespectful names, respect, in the common courtesy way as well as because he is our President, is simply not there.
I do believe that those Democrats who are in the forefront of trying to loudly pin any and all scandals, missteps and other news issues as the President's Administration's total responsibility, will have all the same come down on their own heads one day. It is inevitable that where you give no charity, you can be sure that when you need it most, it is not going to come your way. And when it comes to such a job as the Presidency where you rely so much on people working together, the Democrats clearly have thrown a wrench into as much as they possibly could and more during all these years that President Bush has been in office, rather than come along side of him, his administration, and their fellow members of Congress.
Our country is fraught with problems of its own, but one problem we did not breed is that of outside (or inside) terrorism, of which we are the biggest target. Clearly there is a lot not being covered in the media, much not being addressed by the Democratic leadership, and things that are ignored in almost every issue in the news today. It is incumbent on we the citizens to get to the bottom of what we read and hear and not to parrot others even if we don't like who they don't like. There is no way our country can truly be successful when we citizens behave in such a way.
The Democrat's platform has no plan to back up the change they say America needs, just ask them or look for it on one of the leader's websites. You won't find it. What you will find is a party sold out to the abortion lobby and many anti-Bush organizations, And we the citizens seem so impatient with the changes that our President has begun in our country, including going into Iraq, that we don't want to give things the time they need to actually work.
We will pay for our impatience and disrespect. My hope is that we change our tune before the enemy gets by us again and takes more innocent lives.
