The Pendulum Swings


If you have kept up with the news the past few months you will know that the old media has been in a feeding frenzy when it comes to President Bush and his Republican administration. The poll numbers reflect that his popularity has taken a dive and the press has taken to the water, feasting on Bush like a bunch of hungry Pirana. I must admit it was looking pretty bad for a while but if history is a guide it looks as though the President will survive this hit and rebound.

Lately there have been some good signs. The lack of an indictment of Carl Rove may have been the beginning of this turnaround but some important events have happened in the past few days that may really increase the momentum of this upswing. The recent bombings in Jordan have produced a backlash against the terrorists by Muslims who are sick of being the targets of these murderers. They have taken to the streets protesting. Only this time instead of Muslims protesting America, they are screaming for the death of the terrorists. There also has been a video released of the Kurds in Iraq thanking America for setting them free. President Bush stepped up to the plate and scolded the left just yesterday for making ridiculous false claims that he manipulated intelligence in order to go to war with Saddam all the while knowing everything that he knew and voting to approve the Presidents actions. Also the current riots in France are a good illustration to Americans and the world of what leftists policies can lead to and that bodes well for the American right. The way I see it there is a change coming and you will see the approval ratings of the Bush team climb back up from the current lows.

The President has some bold ideas and wants to change America and the world for the better. The American left stands in his way as they do not want to see Republicans get and credit for such bold and positive change in the world. Since they have no good ideas of their own their strategy seems to be to do everything they can to slow down and stop Republicans from making forward progress.

This is a bad policy and will lead to more of the same from the Democrats in years to come should they take control back from the Republicans. Just think about all we could accomplish if the left would work with us instead of against us. We could reform Social Security, the Tax Code and make America less dependent on foreign oil if only the left would help us. We could also continue to make America a more prosperous place economically but if the left gets control of the purse strings they will only tax us more and spend even more than the Bush administration has.

In the end we will wind up with a more socialist government should they prevail. However I have a theory that I think will allow Republicans to make strides in years to come. I will share that with you next time.

Agree or disagree?
