Hewitt Symposium: Bush against Kerry
Radio Talker Hugh Hewitt posed a question on his web log: "In 250 words or less, why vote for Bush and what's wrong with Kerry?" This is his "Vox Bloguli IV" symposium.
Here's what you need to know:
In this time of great vulnerability to terrorist mutants who literally want to see us dead and our country buried, President Bush has provided certain defense and a direct attack on our enemies based on the principle that all humans are like Americans in their innate need to live free. President Bush brought the world, including France, together to fight terrorism as it exists now. And the President is removing the threat of terrorism in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. He is also working, there and elsewhere, to remove the tyranny and enslavement in which terrorism best breeds. In this sense, a vote for Bush is a vote for the future and the freedom of mankind.
John Kerry wants to be President. Aside from that and his "service in Vietnam," we can be certain of very little about the man. The Democrats probably would not have nominated him had they been given the usual amount of time in their primary process to examine his candidacy, and his knee-jerk vacillation is a sign of profound intellectual weakness disguised by convoluted phrasings and media-contrived pretense.
He really is the wrong candidate in the wrong place at the wrong time.
