Thats the slogan that is on the bumper sticker that adorns my car and I can’t explain how sincere that thank you really is.
While President Bush may not poll well, and while some conservatives constantly complain about him because of this or that, President Bush remains true to the office, and vigilant in our nation’s defense like very few President’s in our nation’s history.
Many forget that President Bush’s legacy includes but isn’t limited to:
Pushing through the passage of the Partial Birth Abortion Bill, which ended the disgusting procedure.
Standing up for life in other ways, including blocking embryonic stem cell research and cutting off funds for overseas abortions by reinstating the Mexico City Policy.
Bringing God, Faith, and Decency back to the Oval Office.
Nominating the best group of Supreme Court Justices of any President.
Keeping us safe from terrorism with policies like the Patriot Act, Survellance Programs, Guantanamo Bay, and enhanced interrogation techniques.
President Bush has also single handedly set the course and direction of our War on Terror by outlining beliefs that few can disagree with. These include believing that we are in a battle between good and evil, a battle against Islamofacsim that we must strike nations that pose potential threats before those threats can be realized, that we must hold other nations accountable for harboring terrorists, and that we must act with our own coalitions of nations when necessary to ensure our saftey and freedom.
Finally, in his Presidency’s darkest hours (not including 9/11) and against the conventional wisdom, and a newly elected Democrat Congress he initiated The Surge which saved many of our own troops lives, many Iraqi lives, and the idea of Freedom in the Middle East. Looking back it is hard to remember a President who went against his advisors and the natinoal mood to do what he believed was right.
Now that the surge is a success, I think that our President, just like our troops deserve a “Bravo”, “Right On” and “Thank You”.
His legacy will be one of Courage, Conviction, and Strength.
Thank You Mr. President. And God Bless.
“I can hear you. The rest of the world hears you. And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear from all of us soon!” -President Bush
