I have often looked at the War on Terror and how we came to fight it as comparable to our American Civil War and how we came to fight that one. President Bush reminds me of the pious Lincoln…his matter of fact statements of policy…his no-nonsense approach…his sometimes entertaining turns of phrases(or mutilation of phrases). Lincoln was the right man at the right time for America in 1860 and President Bush is the right man at the right time in 2000 and 2004.
I didn’t watch the inaugural speech because I was doing the will of the people of the Commonwealth. I read it later and was both shocked and proud at the broad statements our President made. If indeed these are the goals of the second Bush Administration then we are in for a wild ride over the next four years. If the House and Senate can get behind these goals they may well become the official policy of the United States for years to come and that can’t be a bad thing.
