The Stark Reality
by Lee

He may be spending like a drunken Kennedy, but Bush is still getting my vote.  This is why.  Andrew Sullivan has dug up this illuminating quote from likely Democratic nominee John “I Served in Vietnam” Kerry, and it’s truly horrifying.

The war on terror is less—it is occasionally military, and it will be, and it will continue to be for a long time. And we will need the best-trained and the most well-equipped and the most capable military, such as we have today.

But it’s primarily an intelligence and law enforcement operation that requires cooperation around the world - the very thing this administration is worst at. And most importantly, the war on terror is also an engagement in the Middle East economically, socially, culturally, in a way that we haven’t embraced, because otherwise we’re inviting a clash of civilizations.

And I think this administration’s arrogant and ideological policy is taking America down a more dangerous path. I will make America safer than they are.

There you have it.  If you liked Bill Clinton’s foreign policy then vote for Kerry.  Bush, for all his faults as a president, will get my vote for no other reason than this.  The thought of John Kerry, who served in Vietnam, being in charge of defending this country is a horrifying thought indeed.
