As General H. Norman Schwarzkopf observed:
"It doesn't take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle".

Some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along. We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: "Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided." We have an obligation to call this what it is -- the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history." (excerpt from President Bush's Knesset speech, May 15, 2008)
It's funny how so many are coming forward and calling his speech a disgrace - calling it an insult to Jews and to Israel itself.
It's funny that some of you are saying this despite the fact that he received a standing ovation after giving that speech!
And it's very funny how Senator Barack Obama calls the speech "a disgraceful attack on me and my campaign" He then says, "I never said I would sit down and talk with our enemies" Well, if you never said it, how is President Bush's speech an attack on you?
Bush reaffirmed to Israel that the America will continue to support her and not give in to the demands of terrorists. He was applauded for this by the very people you all claim were offended.
When have Israel's enemies - Hezbollah, Hamas, the PLO, and Al-Qaeda ever asked for talks to resolve the situation? When have these groups ever said, "Look, we think it's unfair and we would like to work out a diplomatic solution"? NEVER! Instead, they brainwash their followers into believing suicide bombing is the way to salvation.
President Bush was right in this speech. Our enemy can be compared to Hitler. He never tried to negotiate either - he just sent his troops out wherever he wanted a piece of land.
Those who think our enemies now are any different are incredibly foolish. I am sure if Bin Laden, instead of financing terrorist attacks, instead used his wealth and influence to seek diplomatic solutions, the America would have been happy to sit down with him. But that's not how people like Bin Laden operate.
The Bin Laden's of this world don't want anything but to see us dead, enslaved or assimilated into Islam.
Remember that line in the movie "Independence Day". When President Whitmore asks the captured alien "What do you want us to do?" the alien replies "Die, Die!". I view radical Islam as an alien culture and that line is dead on with their attitude towards Western Civilization.
So Senator Obama, I ask you, do you think you can change their minds?

Just return us to our rightful place as leaders of America.
In less than two years. Remember the election in 2006?
Let's consider the following that has taken place since:
Less than two years ago:
1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%.
Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we have seen:
1) Consumer confidence plummet;
2) The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3.50 a gallon;
3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);
4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses);
5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars;
6) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure..
America voted for change in 2006, and we got it!
Remember it is Congress that makes law not the President. He has to work with what's handed to him.
And this Democratic Congress has been sitting on it's collective thumbs rotating while they blame it all on the current administration.
A liberal is a person who will give away everything he doesn't don't own.
