In those 5 words, the President of the United States:
- Separates the men from the boys
- Restates the classic oil and water conundrum
- Draws a line in the “sand” for those with no stomach
- Firmly states why the United States Military is what it is - the best
I’ll tell ya, when I hear words like those coming from a sitting President that has conviction and steadfast commitment, you just wanna re-up! At the very least you know that your CINC has got your six! At issue is if the rest of the electorate has the resolve to do what is right, what is needed, and what will keep us all safe.
Do you see a waffling, poll-numbers loving, womanizing, crocodile tears CINC here:
I know I don’t!
But, maybe that’s ’cause everything President Bush has done up to now has been to keep us all safe. We can all wander down the lane moaning and groaning about the spending, placating the Democrats on their stupid issues, and sucky candidates ad nauseam. But our true threat is far across the oceans, seas, and gulfs.
In President Bush’s speech in Afghanistan, found here at AF.mil, he went on to say:
“You saw our nation was attacked and when your country called you gladly served. This government will not blink, we will not yield. We are on the right course and the world will be a better place because of your service. God bless you for protecting our country.”
At every waking moment, every Sunday in Church, and whenever I see an Air Force plane, Navy ship, Army Duece-N-A-Half, USMC Hummer, or Coast Guard cruiser (we have those here in N. California), I wish them all God Speed and thank them for being there for my family.TAGS: Fix4RSO, Milblog, Military, USAF, GWOT, President, Commitment
