What do you do when the country sends a clear message through the polls that they are tired of the direction you are taking the country? What do you do when they take away your majority in Congress and even take back a half dozen governerships?
You toss your warbird on the altar and give him up as a sign that you are going to move more toward the will of the people.
I was a bit disappointed in Bush’s speech about Rumsfeld’s departure. He said the voting was a result of his opponents running “a disciplined campaign and getting out the vote.” Hey George, what about the people wanting our government to PAY ATTENTION to what WE think is important and to stop feeding at the public trough at the expense of our pocketbooks and our children’s lives overseas? What about congratulating the people for doing the right thing… not your political opponents for a “good match.”
Even if your elected officials won’t recognize what the American citizens have accomplished, I will…
THANK YOU FOR VOTING AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY AND THE WORLD.
