Skip to comments.'He's Got Two of 'Em'- Why I can't stop being happy about the election result.

Well, I just can't stop being happy. I don't mean elated--it's hard to get elated by big history, as opposed to by the birth of a baby, say, or a child's being elected president of the debating club--but I continue to feel relief (the exit poll hives have gone down) and satisfaction (my countrymen, such good sense they have). So let's just let the mood continue and have fun.
This week I went to a symposium thrown together at the last minute by the Club for Growth, the Washington-based political action committee that gives crucial financial help to candidates who espouse economic policies that will help the American job machine, and opposing those who do not. Almost every Senate and House candidate they backed this year won. Also it was the club that worked with Hollywood's David Zucker to get out the anti-Kerry commercial that was perhaps the best of the season, the one with the guy standing at the altar when the bride realizes he just can't make up his mind and starts to chase the bridesmaid, and then the old organist. It captured John Kerry's indecision and its implications. More important, it was funny.

Peggy Noonan is such a wonderful gift!
Is she the same Peggy Noonan who said: ""The battle for the mind of Ronald Reagan was like the trench warfare of World War I: never have so many fought so hard for such barren terrain"
Wow! That was a GREAT article!
If those who tend to believe MSM half-truths had not been poisoned so relentlessly by the MSM, Michael Moore, Hollywood, and so forth, the margin would have been even greater.
The conclusion is really a happy one. Even with the most powerful propaganda effort, falsehood and enslaving government and elitism and cowardice lost the day; the majority does weigh reports and think for itself. The majority did avail itself of multiple news sources. It chose well.
The nation is safe for four more years.
Points well taken! I think I understand better now that when Bush talked of earning "political capital" he wasn't just referring to the capital that comes with a win over an opponent and the opposition party, it was the HUGE amount of capital that comes from taking on and beating Kerry and the DEMS, the MSM, old Europe, Hollywood, etc. The MSM hasn't touched on this because it is not in their interest, but your post has helped to illuminate just how great a victory this was for the President.
Your kind comments are especially appreciated since I reread my post and it contains a phrase I'd intended to delete but didn't! You managed to pull understanding out of that mess! You are very kind, indeed!
Thank YOU, it is not an understatement to say that your comments have radically changed my perspective, as an observer, of Bush's political position during the coming four years. Though he continues to have the same enemies, he is much stronger than prior to the election, and has reassurance that most Americans understand, and rejected, what his enemies tried to do. It must be a big boost to his confidence.
I recall that she later reassessed Reagan, and recanted many of these harsh criticisms.
Read "When Character as King" Wonderful bio.
Excellent. Thanks for posting.
Stop that! :-)
