Surplus Politics

Let me say that although I disagree with Cheery on many points, her actions the last couple of days have shown her to be a patriot who is willing to put her country ahead of politics. This is not a time to be accusing one another or pointing fingers; but a time to come together behind our Commander in Chief. Sadly many Democrats, including Democratic Leaders, lack Cheery's patriotism.

Take John Kerry, for example. Thank goodness this UNPATRIOTIC JERK didn't become President. He clearly doesn't care for his country at all. If he did he would be looking for ways to help rather than taking
mean-spirited snips at the President.
Katrina stripped away any image of competence and exposed to all the true heart and nature of this administration. The truth is that for four and a half years, real life choices have been replaced by ideological agenda, substance replaced by spin, governance second place always to politics. Yes, they can run a good campaign -- I can attest to that -- but America needs more than a campaign. If 12 year-old Boy Scouts can be prepared, Americans have a right to expect the same from their 59 year-old President of the United States.
Maybe, just maybe, Kerry, the problems facing the President of the United States are just a bit more complicated than the problems facing your average boy scout? You ever consider that? Obviously not. Once again, thank goodness you didn't become President.

The truth is that Democrats don't want to see the reconstruction in New Orleans go well. The suffering there means nothing more to them than a chance to take CHEAP SHOTS at the President. I know that this seems fantastic. A couple of years ago I might have found such commentary over the top myself. But that is where we are. Hatred of President Bush has so corrupted the Democratic Party that they really have nothing to offer America.

Geov Parrish, one of those liberal columnists who like to pontificate on how dumb conservatives are, writes in
his latest article about how President Bush's failure to preserve a fictional surplus has hurt recovery efforts in New Orleans.
This president, you'll recall, inherited a budget surplus from the previous administration -- a cushion that could have been used to soften the budgetary blow of exactly this sort of monetary emergency. He made his bed, by recklessly wasting that surplus on bloated government spending, reckless tax cuts for his wealthy pals, and an even more reckless war in Iraq.
First of all the Bush tax cuts are the engine that is driving our economy. Our economy is going gang-busters contrary to what those nay-sayers would tell you. Secondly, it is never reckless to protect the American people from it's enemies. Rather it would have been reckless to sit back and let Saddam Hussein develop nuclear weapons and then hand them over to al-Qaida.

Anyway, like I say, I wish that Democrats could follow Cheery's advice and become more moderate in their tone and more willing to work with Republicans and Conservatives.
