    Whatever happened to listening to the advice of the commanders on the ground to determine what is needed and when it should be done?

    The President has stayed consistent on this vital point, and rightly so, yet now we have those in Congress who seemingly want to follow what popular opinion polls are saying and make their decisions based on that rather than on the news from the ground. How idiotic is that? Talk about sending the wrong message to our troops and to the enemy.

    It is evident that many in Washington do not have core beliefs or convictions to base their tough decisions on and explains why so many are all over the map when it comes to things like this.

    The President does have core convictions and a simple clear vision of our times – a quality that any leader must have in turbulent times. Do not mistake this for arrogance, like so many want to do.

    Those in Washington that deserve our utmost scrutiny are those that cannot make up their minds on what to do about Iraq, and continue to reference their decisions based on what the ‘American people surely must want” rather than on what is best for our national security interest.

    We elect and we entrust those in high office to make those tough decisions involving our national security because we expect them to have the information in front of them (that we don’t have access too ) in order to do what is best for us. Why then should we expect them to put so much emphasis, again on matters concerning our national security, on what we the American people think? How are we supposed to know what is best on these matters? That is why we elected them in the first place, correct?

    To summarize, I want them to follow their core convictions, you see, again on matters concerning our national security, not what you or I think might be best because even with our best intentions, we can’t know what is best for our national security. Thank God President Bush understands this simple truth and relies on his core convictions. I respect that and so should everyone because, darn it, he is the President of the United States….period.

    “all you conservatives out there, do some research before you open your mouths. look up in the library of congress articles on the U.S. funding the Taliban to fight the russian “cold war,” funding Al Queda in the early 90’s”

    Probably happened and I understand your point but really you must ask yourself what does that have to do with things now in a post-9/11 world?

    I want to know how to make the world a safer place for us now and for future generations because of the realities of 9/11.

    What we chose to do back then, you have to believe, was in our nation’s best interest, but it has absolutely no bearing, and should not, on the decisions we make now on matters of national security. 9/11 changed all that.

    “It amazes me how people still are supporting this administration when they have lied and bent the consitution; “outed” a CIA agent; dismantled FEMA; have not completed the work in Afghanistan; started a WAR in IRAQ; have not been fiscally responsible; our reputation around the world tarnished and basically have been an embrassment!”

    Because none of what you just accused this administration is even remotely true. You are right, if anyone carried on like that, I too would be disgusted with them.

    Did you ever stop to think that maybe it is those people you choose to listen too that never have one good thing to say about this current administration who are the ones doing the deceiving?

    If you want to believe something bad enough about someone, you can but it takes courage to set aside your personal dislikes/agendas and actually see someone for who they are.
