Those Who Forget History,...

As we go into Round Two of the "Debate to Save America," let's draw some comparisons from presidents and debates of the past:

Its 1988. Cold Warrior Ronald Reagan has left this country with one of the largest militaries in history and the ability to both project ourselves anywhere in the world and to beat the living snot out of our enemies.

Second-in-Command George H.W. Bush is left with one major mandate in his first term: deliver the final knockout punch to a Soviet Union that is on its knees. He does. Had he been re-elected, his next move would have been to clean up the mess and be vigilant for more enemies on the horizon.

Then he looked at his watch during a debate and it was all over. Along came a saxophone-playing common man and a jug-eared vox populist to leap at the opening. The sax player won out.

Clinton looked around and thought "the Cold War is over. We have no more major enemies in the world. He then proceeded to "talk" to our enemies. They promised to stop being mean to us and he took them at their word. Our military was eviscerated. And what followed?
  • 1993 - the World Trade Center is bombed
  • 1993 - Somali paramilitary takes out two of our Blackhawk helicopters. We turn tail and leave.
  • Yugoslavia dissolves into civil war. We get into a sparring match with the Serbs. Clinton's spine dissolves and we refuse to actually engage the Serbs in a real fight as the public decries the possible loss of life.
  • 1998 - US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania are bombed. We retaliate by lobbing long-range missiles at a Sudanese aspirin factory.
  • 2000 - The USS Cole is attacked
And all the while, the so-called "Peace Dividend" brought about a budget surplus and tax cuts. The American people were happy.

Saxman Clinton's replacement, George W. Bush, wasn't even in office long enough to get his agenda going when the same people Clinton ignored for 8 years sucker-punched us on 9/11.

And now, gentle readers, we stand on the threshold of another administration. The debate tonight is between a Cold Warrior in his own right and another common man promising change and the chance to "talk it over" with those who would destroy us.

And the common man is ahead by 5 or more points in the polls.

It MUST change tonight!

It certainly needed to be changed tonight, but Alas......he failed miserably. I think he won the debate but it just wasn't enough!
