BUSH WILL NOT LET THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE STAND IN HIS WAY
Speaking to the National Religious Broadcasters, President Bush said, the troops “are not coming home based upon defeat, or based upon opinion polls, or based upon focus groups, or based upon politics, they're coming home because we're successful." He told cheering supporters, "The decision to remove Saddam Hussein was the right decision early in my presidency. It is the right decision in this point in my presidency, and it will forever be the right decision.”
He is not going to let the November elections influence his actions. “Why should I be influenced by the will of the American people or by common sense?” Mr. Bush asked. “I’ve never let things like that stand in my way before.”
On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton said that she and John McCain are ready to be commander in chief , while Barack Obama is not. What kind of a Democrat puts down a fellow Democrat while advancing a Republican contender? Not only was Mrs. Clinton’s comment unfair to Senator Obama, it also overlooked Dr. Carl Perrin. Although Perrin is no longer campaigning, he has not withdrawn from the race. Unlike both Clinton and Obama, Perrin has actual military experience. He was a sergeant in the 31st Infantry Division during the Korean War. He was also a senior patrol leader in his Boy Scout troop. And of course he is president of the Computer Club at his retirement village. Perrin has the kind of executive and leadership experience that none of the other candidates have.
