Bush Blowout!

Drudge reports "Gallup Shows Bush Blowout: 14 Point Lead Over Kerry" Did I tell you? Once voters finally started seriously start paying attention they see just who and what John Kerry stands for. The extreme left liberal views of America. The average American simply doesn't fall on the extreme left or right. In my opinion most American's fall a little more to the right but I don't have any data to back that up at the moment, just a feeling I have.

Dan is finished, but hey, I could be wrong....I don't think so, but I could be.

Here is something on the aftermath of the Beslan massacre in Russia.

I tend to agree with the Russians on this one. Russia has every right if no the obligation to go after the bastards who did this and make them pay. If I lost my child is Beslan, I'd be signing up for the Russian Security Forces right now. Here's something I wrote about how I felt about this a couple of weeks ago before I started the blog.

So it’s come to this. Wantonly and maliciously targeting and murdering children in cold blood. More than 150 children slaughtered by Islamic Jihadists…terrorists…cowards. The massacre in Beslan, Russia should serve as a reminder of just who we are dealing with in our war on terror. What kind of savages murder children to advance a cause?

Those that didn’t get it before, I pray understand now, just who this enemy is and what he is capable of. You can’t negotiate with terrorists who would turn a school full of innocent parents and children into a slaughter house. You can’t turn a blind eye and hope they leave you alone and you can’t buy them off. The only solution is to root them out where they hide and kill them. That’s all these cowards understand. This is war. A war not of our choosing but a war forced on us. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Republican or Democrat, Liberal or Conservative, black or white, rich or poor and now, apparently, it doesn’t even matter if you’re an adult or a child. They want us dead, every one of us. For the average American it’s tough to wrap our minds around that because that’s not who we are.

Those that believe our battle in Iraq is creating more terrorists just don’t get it. Iraq is but a battle in the larger war against Islamic terrorism. These groups have been at war with us for years; it just took an event like 9/11 to make us realize it. There are those who will tell you that the terror threat is hyped and is being used as a scare tactic. Over 150 dead children in Russia and over 3000 of our countrymen dead on 9/11; that’s not a scare tactic, that’s the reality of the danger we face today. Everyday I thank God that we have brave men and women who willingly put their lives in harms way, taking the fight to these monsters, instead of waiting for them to hit us again. It is a debt we will never be able to repay. Those of us who remain here must be steadfast and resolute in the face of rising casualty figures; we owe our fighting men and women no less. Every American lost in this war on terror is a tragedy and we are right to cringe every time we hear of another countryman’s death. But what is the alternative? Do we wait for them to hit us again, and again, and again? Do we wait for another 9/11 or Beslan? Or do we continue taking the fight to them? In this epic struggle there is no middle ground.

That's all for now.

Dan Rather needs to retire sooner rather than later. I heard several years ago that his ratings were dropping quickly, but yet he stuck around. I don't know why he's holding out for so long. It's way past obvious that no one likes him.

I have to agree about dan. He should retire and at least keep some shred of dignity rather than keep defending what the whole world knows is a flat out lie.
