When the war in Iraq started, I thought, well, it’s best to do this with a Republican President; he won’t waffle, waver, or accept excuses! Alas, while Bush didn’t waffle, waver, or accept excuses, he did prove himself to be weak, indecisive, and generally horrible under pressure.
So right now I’m open to anyone, conservative or liberal, as long as he’s not an ineffectual schmuck like Bush.
We should expect our leaders to lead, not take their cues from “political advisors” and poll results. In this respect, we haven’t had a truly great president since… JFK? FDR? Lincoln!? We need to cut through the corruptive crap that has infiltrated politics at every level and in every party.
Since he’s a career soldier, it’s a fair bet he’s a conservative, but here’s some advice to the Republicans: look at him seriously. He is the anti-Bush, at least in his ability to lead and make things happen. Regardless of his politics, if he becomes Governor, Senator, or President Honore in 2008, I don’t think I’d mind.
We don’t need another puppet in a blue suit. We don’t need someone who panders to the press, the special interests, and anyone who answers a telephone poll. We don’t need George W. Bush or John Kerry or Tom DeLay or Al Gore. We need a loud, angry, cursing, mustachioed Cajun who knows what has to be done and how to do it!
(And whatever happens, Honore should at least be offered the directorship of FEMA.)
