Wictory Wednesday - Not content with angry marches and misleading television commercials, the left has decided to try another tactic to criticize President George W. Bush. The New York Times is reporting that groups are organizing on the internet and encouraging liberals to volunteer for the GOP Convention with the idea of disrupting it from the inside.
Since President Bush won the election in 2000, there has been an amazing level of hatred for the man. I know I've commented on it many times before, but it still surprises me just how much pure vitriol some in the Democrat party can produce for the president. What is more surprising and disappointing is how the leaders of that party have refused to confront the haters in their ranks. John Kerry shows no intention of saying a word against groups such as MoveOn.org, or the organizers of the pro-abortion march in Washington, no matter what these people say.
Does Kerry's silence indicate agreement? Does John Kerry think it's fair to compare Bush to Hitler, or for pro-abortion activists to say that the only allies this administration has are the Pope and Islamic extremists? If not, why doesn't he speak out against the rhetoric employed by his political supporters?
It's going to get worse as the election nears. John Kerry, after saying we shouldn't care about who served in Vietnam and who didn't when Clinton was in office, is now trying to recycle the Bush AWOL story from a few months ago. Despite his many errors, though, Kerry has not suffered the media assault that Bush has undergone over issue after issue. The president cannot depend on the media to get his message out.
Now, as the election kicks into gear and starts getting nasty, the president needs your help more than ever. Please volunteer or donate to the re-election campaign. If you're a blogger, join the growing coalition of those who want to see Bush defeat Kerry and the haters (sounds like a rock band, doesn't it?) in the fall.
