President Bush has rediscovered his voice and is well on the way back up the approval ladder again after a several months hiatus. While always staying focused and resolute regarding the war in Iraq, the President is effectively fighting back and countering his liberal critics and their media accomplices especially the New York Times as his poll numbers continue to increase. Several excellent well received speeches on Iraq and the burgeoning economy at home have propelled the most recent comeback. In another historic election, the third this year, some 70% of Iraqis cast their ballots for a parliament with very little violence from the insurgents. The day after the election the NYT ran a front page story that accused Bush of "secretly spying" on U.S. citizens after 9/11. What the story failed to point out was that it is perfectly legal for the U.S. Government to listen into conversations with foreign connections and the congressional leadership approved the plan brought forth by the NSA. Many people seem to have short memories of the immediate horror in the aftermath of 9/11 and what might hit us next. President Bush said he would take whatever steps were necessary to protect the American people.
What is good news for the Bush administration has got to be bad news for many of the liberal naysayers and partisan pundits who have been undermining and attacking the administration every day. Back at home, much to the dismay and the dire predictions from the left, the economy just keeps on growing and churning ahead. Over 5 million new jobs have been created in the past couple of years dropping the unemployment rate to 5%, consumer prices reflected the biggest decline in over 50 years, and the GNP rose over 4% for the last quarter.
Why with all this good news it is no wonder that democrats are worried. Maybe they could call on some of their hip-pocket – political – hack prosecutors such as Ronnie Earle to trump up some inane charges.
