We Need A Real Second Political Party
I'll be the first to admit that I'm glad President Bush won re-election last year, even though I haven't been too happy with the way he's started his second term. (I think he's dropped the ball on the Global War on Terror -- or should I say, the "Global Argument Against Not Very Nice Guys" or whatever they're calling it this week.)
That being said, what's the alternative? Surely not the Democrats as currently constituted -- check out what they've been reduced to:
"President Bush's has dropped the ball when it comes to fully funding physical education in public schools and women's athletic programs at the college level," said Democratic National Committee spokesman Josh Earnest. "His personal habits indicate that physical fitness is not just fun and games for him. Don't our kids deserve the same opportunities to be physically fit? President Bush should stop running from his responsibility and make sure that all American children have access to physical fitness programs...
"...Doctors gave President Bush a clean bill of health in his annual checkup this weekend and White House spokesperson Dana Perino proclaimed him to be "in superior health." However, America's youth are not so lucky. While obesity has been declared an epidemic in this country, Bush's education policy is putting children at risk with cuts in physical education and school athletic programs."
They appear to be pissed off that a man in his late 50's is in good shape. Apparently, only the feds can get people to lose weight. And these people expect us to trust them to run the government? (Actually, if you do think that Bush is to blame from kids eating too much and not exercising, you might like my other thoughts on that subject that I post sometimes over at BlameBush. Liberal Larry's most recent thread concerns the fact that Bush is personally destroying the world's environment, citing as evidence the fact that the Northern Hemisphere is much hotter now than it was six months ago.)
