Bush: No apologies, feeling energized

Do not miss this excellent report on Kate O'Bierne and Rich Lowry's recent meeting with the President. I have always found optimism to be contagious, and this is no exception.

There is almost no one in America who doesn't have at least one disagreement with some stand the President has taken. I have several myself. With that said, when I voted for the man, I voted for someone who would always do what he truly believed was the right thing. Sometimes I have not agreed, particularly when it has come to the State Department's "programming" of a Condi Rice who I once upon a time considered to be a really strong National Security Advisor. But either she is Bipolar or some really monumental things are going on behind the scenes at Foggy Bottom that have deprogrammed Condi from her focus on America's security to a myopic focus on America's popularity.

With all of that said, one of the things I am most thankful for over this holiday season is that President Bush has been in place over the last 7 years. If he had not been, if it had been Gore and/or Kerry, the United States would have been in a world of hurt. I think that history will judge President Bush as being a rock in a maelstrom--analagous to Lincoln in the darkest days of the Civil War; a President who had the backbone when public opinion was decidedly against him, to do the right thing to keep America strong and viable. That strength and viability may be sabotaged and bled dry bay a nation under a Democrat Administration. The chances of that are greater than they have ever been. But if it does happen, it will be in no means related to anything the President has done.
