“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

It's Ann Coulter Thursday!

This week Ann makes the case for George Bush's presidency using a single argument....we've been terrorist-attack free ever since 9/11. She defends Bush's decision to invade Iraq and engage the AQ terrorists by arguing that it's better to fight them in Iraq than wait for them to come to Manhattan. I happen to agree with that sentiment, but I wouldn't go so far as to say Bush was a great President. Compassionate conservatism is code for big-government, big-spending centrism. And it's the reason the GOP is going to take it on the chin in November. You can go to Ann's site and see if you agree.

I happen to agree with her on this one. As poor as our economy is, something that congress has more control over than the president, and high gas prices, again not the president's fault, George Bush hasn't been a terrible president. Low approval ratings are simply America's problems being blamed on the president. I wouldn't say Bush has been a fantastic president, but he certainly hasn't been terrible. Imagine if Gore had been elected. We would have no power, terrorist attacks every other day, we would be the Middle East of the Western Hemisphere. The war on Iraq has kept America safe for 7 years now. And other than the Gulf War, it has had the fewest number of casualties. It has been probably the most successful war we have had yet! I applaud Bush for having the balls to wage it. America needed it, and most Americans take for granted what we have in this country.
