Why I LOVE George W. Bush.

A portion of his speech last night:

Palestinians will hear the message that democracy and reform are within their reach, and so is peace with our good friend Israel. Young women across the Middle East will hear the message that their day of equality and justice is coming. Young men will hear the message that national progress and dignity are found in liberty, not tyranny and terror.

Yeah, you better believe it. Palestinians, Iran...beware. Bwahahahaha...Well, hopefully. =)

and later:

In the last four years, you and I have come to know each other. Even when we don't agree, at least you know what I believe and where I stand. You may have noticed I have a few flaws, too. People sometimes have to correct my English — I knew I had a problem when Arnold Schwarzenegger (news - web sites) started doing it. Some folks look at me and see a certain swagger, which in Texas is called "walking." Now and then I come across as a little too blunt — and for that we can all thank the white-haired lady sitting right up there.

I can't quite believe he put in that one-liner about Schwarzenneger...lol, and that "walking" line is great...

Oh yeah, I'm in Paris right now. Center of anti-Bushites & anti-Americanites...

but, as it's say...know your enemy.

My favorite line--

Here buildings fell, and here a nation rose.

How sad. (even that word doesn't do it justice)
How torturously, agonizingly, horrendously traumatic.

And his ending was great too...

To everything we know there is a season — a time for sadness, a time for struggle, a time for rebuilding. And now we have reached a time for hope. This young century will be liberty's century. By promoting liberty abroad, we will build a safer world. By encouraging liberty at home, we will build a more hopeful America. Like generations before us, we have a calling from beyond the stars to stand for freedom. This is the everlasting dream of America — and tonight, in this place, that dream is renewed. Now we go forward — grateful for our freedom, faithful to our cause, and confident in the future of the greatest nation on earth.

God bless you, and may God continue to bless America.

It's just what we need. That great line adjusted from Dickens' "Tale of Two Cities" (I do believe...correct me if I'm wrong...). I know the RNC deliberately tried to work in the idealistic, hopeful angle...just like the DNC tried to work in the stronger, strength angle...so, I know it's all hyped...but, seriously...that (optimistic talk) is what we need right now. The United States has dwelled far too long on disaster and pessimism, no thanks to the Democrats--esp. Kerry. I mean, even our great Olympics performance, above what we expected, was overshadowed by talks of the emerging power of the Chinese...how they'll overpower us in the future...more specifically economically, becoming the next "United States" superpower...a la Germany post WWI--WWII.

Geez, I dunno what I'll do if Bush doesn't win. G-d he better. Never before have I been so convinced a presidential election is absolutely pivotal to the future of our country and the world. Though that may sound corny...just think...It's very key that the United States have a leader who can stand up for US. (pun very much intended)...Otherwise, our flip-flopping (reference very much intended) around certain issues will only result in perceived weakness and create the perfect opening for extremists and well...for good measure...China. Seriously, the ads are right. "10 out of 10 terrorists agree--Anybody but Bush"...

Man, my absentee ballot better come through...or heads will roll.

Okay, I've been constantly returning to this post to add things. This will hopefully be my last addition. But, did anyone else think that the RNC was A LOT more interesting than the DNC? I mean...it was just so much better planned, executed...I dunno...I am biased. lol. But damn, the speakers made me laugh, cry...gave me the chills...inspired me...*sigh*...I love election season in the United States...
