Calmly Determined President
In his sixth State of the Union address, president Bush took the high ground and left the democrat's crawling below.
"Congress did not act last year on my proposal to save Social Security."
To that the democrat's laughed, and American's saw that they do not care about the future of our future retirees. Democrat's haven't yet realized it, but Bush scored hugely on it for Republican's in the upcoming November elections.
Bush delivered an SOTU that was low-key and assured, with just the right tone for a to assure the American people — or at least the majority of Americans willing to consider his words with an open mind — that he knows what his responsibilities are and what he needs to do to see them through.
Bush has made tax cuts a priority again. Democrats sat on their hands when he brought it up, even with the proof of them working to benefit the economy and the American people.
It is clear that democrat's desire to raise taxes as high as possible to steal money from hard working citizens in order to create a socialist government that will redistribute that money amongst their constituents, and not to the poor as they falsely claim time after time.
Bush will cut stupid and wasteful social programs that were created by democrat's over decades to keep government above the people, doing whatever it wants unchecked. Have you ever seen government employees being fired for doing a bad job? It rarely ever happens. Incompetence in government is rewarded by those on the left who don't care because it's not their money to begin with. The money comes from the people, not the government!
Run Away Democrats
Bush is a man of courage who knows and understands what the stakes are in this war on terror, where democrat's have continuously shown their desire to run away like cowards.
Thank God for president George W. Bush at this time in history.
"In a time of testing, we cannot find security by abandoning our commitments and retreating within our borders. If we were to leave these vicious attackers alone, they would not leave us alone. They would simply move the battlefield to our own shores. There is no peace in retreat. And there is no honor in retreat. By allowing radical Islam to work its will -- by leaving an assaulted world to fend for itself -- we would signal to all that we no longer believe in our own ideals, or even in our own courage. But our enemies and our friends can be certain: The United States will not retreat from the world, and we will never surrender to evil....
Our country must also remain on the offensive against terrorism here at home. The enemy has not lost the desire or capability to attack us. Fortunately, this nation has superb professionals in law enforcement, intelligence, the military, and homeland security. These men and women are dedicating their lives, protecting us all, and they deserve our support and our thanks. They also deserve the same tools they already use to fight drug trafficking and organized crime -- so I ask you to reauthorize the Patriot Act.
It is said that prior to the attacks of September the 11th, our government failed to connect the dots of the conspiracy. We now know that two of the hijackers in the United States placed telephone calls to al Qaeda operatives overseas. But we did not know about their plans until it was too late. So to prevent another attack -- based on authority given to me by the Constitution and by statute -- I have authorized a terrorist surveillance program to aggressively pursue the international communications of suspected al Qaeda operatives and affiliates to and from America. Previous Presidents have used the same constitutional authority I have, and federal courts have approved the use of that authority. Appropriate members of Congress have been kept informed. The terrorist surveillance program has helped prevent terrorist attacks. It remains essential to the security of America. If there are people inside our country who are talking with al Qaeda, we want to know about it, because we will not sit back and wait to be hit again."
That simple, straight-forward message sends a clear signal to all American's and especially democrats, that Bush is in charge, doing everything he can to protect this nation from those who would attempt to harm us, including wacko-liberals who side with criminals and terrorists' against democracy.
