Good morning, America


Time to wake up folks.  Something is not right with this picture.  Our president is hovering around the 40% approval range in his own country depending on the latest series of "tough talk on terror" speeches aimed at keeping GOP members in office this November.  Before that, he was at the 35% approval rating from his own countrymen.  A foreign adversary can deride him and be applauded at a UN speech?

65% of the American public and 75% of the international community think the United States and our current administration has been heading in the wrong direction.  "Oh," huffs Rush Limbaugh as he pops a Percocet, "these are polls taken by commie left-wing democrats and don't reflect the truth". 

This isn't a poll, this is stark reality.  When the members of the United Nations can snicker and then stand up and applaud after Chavez's tirade against Bush, it is time to take our necks out of the sand and examine what's going on with an objective viewpoint.

Oh yeah, the United Nations is left-wing commie too.  So I guess one-quarter of the world population is correct according to St. Neo,  and three-quarters are crazy liberals.  Thank God we're spreading democracy.  Hope it hits these shores too.

I lose in lottery but I'll be taking bets that St. Neo won't be happy when the fat lady sings on the first Wednesday of November.  This is one bet I'm sure of winning.

Are you saying a Senate and House full of Demos, each elected by 51 percent, or more of the voters, could be a BAD thing in the eyes of anyone?

Nahhh. In this country we recognize that come election day it's the wisdom of the people that speaks. When that happens, we all pull together. pull in our guts and recognize that whatever we might have thought previously, we were wrong.

If it's all Republicans in there, the people spoke saying this war is a righteous thing, that holding prisoners indefinitely without any due process is a righteous thing. That, in fact, everything the Republican Party has done was right.

And if the Demos end up packing both houses, every patriot will cheer knowing democracy has once again worked. That the people didn't like this presidential war, didn't like what Republicans did while they held office.

As any patriot knows, that's what makes this country great. The fact that the morning after the election Republicans and Democrats can joins hands in joy and satisfaction knowing the people have spoken. And that's what counts. The will of 51 percent of the people.

Is this a great country, or what?

I just posted a long comment on Todd's blog. It isn't as colorfully written as yours, but agrees with you that times are changing. I think people are getting sick of hearing that they are "bad" Americans because they disapprove of the way things are being run. When did protest become bad? When did the separation of church and state become un-Patriotic? I can't think of a single time I told a Bush supporter that I disapproved of the war or something the President is doing and wasn't put down for being a Communist, a Liberal or member of some other anti-American group. What I think has happened is that Americans like good sons & daughters wanted strong leadership like a good parent. But being an arrogant & independent group or people, we started to grow tired of all the curfews and time-outs in the corner and when we didn't eat all our peas, still wanted to have dessert.

I don't know justx. Being told we (opposition) are bad, no matter what political stripe we happen to be, ain't all that bad. Not considering what manner of folks are offering up the label and making the judgement.

Used to be a country and western song a long time ago, "If loving you is wrong I don't want to be right". Well, I'd one hell of a lot rather be wrong if wrong means I'm against what this prez has been doing and this Congress has been allowing him to do without impeaching him, than be right.

I haven't read Todd's blog about what makes for a bad American and a bad human being. He loves this prez, he loves this war, he hates Moslems, and wants a fence between here and Mexico. Do I want to know what he thinks is BAD?

Mike, I agree. However, you've got to give Dick Cheney credit...after all, he did shoot a lawyer and get away with it! :-)

Thanks for the comments, folks. I think we are sadly lacking in diplomacy these days. To qualify for leadership in the world, diplomacy should be a necessary requirement. A "My way or the highway" approach isn't working, is it?

rick - it's not working. clinton knew how to get along with other leaders.
