A Glimpse of Our Future President

Monday, 20 November 2000 12:00 AM

The closeness of this election and its current state of limbo has tested the mettle of both George Bush and Al Gore and it has truly revealed how each man will handle the stress and pressures of the job of president. The events of the past week had washed irrelevant the PR spin, posturing, earth tone clothes, and campaign promises. We are now witnessing the blood and guts, white-knuckle reality of each man's soul. What a rare glimpse into our country's future fate has bestowed on us.

George Bush's actions indicate that he is a man who possesses patience, relies on and follows the rule of law, is thoughtful and confident, slow to anger, surrounds himself with wise, thoughtful counsel, and considers all consequences before acting. He has not engaged in public manipulation or spin and he is not orchestrating media reports. He has put his trust in God and the American people.

He possesses all the qualities of not just a good leader, but a remarkably excellent one. You can imagine his calm patience in dealing with an international crisis or pursuing the right course of action on domestic issues regardless of his opponents' lying spin. He is genuine, he is consistent, he will garner for America the long-lost respect from her allies and healthy fear from her enemies.

Al Gore's actions reveal a frightening desperation to cling to power at all costs. He is greedy, he is petty, he is dishonest, and he puts himself above the law and surrounds himself with an army of lawyers and spin doctors, he dispatches 500 AFL-CIO union loyalists to Florida to intimidate and literally steal votes that he was never meant to have. He does this in front of the world, with the mainstream media not only complicit in these actions but willing to promote his spin and avoid reporting on the obvious theft of votes.

Gore has proven he is totally devoid of leadership. He listens to political cronies who advise him to withdrawal his concession, even when it goes against his own first instincts. He does so even in the face of a narrow but unmistakable loss on election night. He has then gone on to lose the first and second recounts and now is employing union thugs to steal votes that weren't cast for him. He rejects 14,000 military votes, from the brave men and women overseas, because they have already glimpsed the destruction of a Gore presidency.

Under a Clinton-Gore administration, the military has suffered massive resignations of high-level personnel, morale is at its lowest point, discipline has broken down, and military families must rely on food stamps to live. This is what awaits the nation at large. This is why Gore wants those military votes thrown out. Gore fears the military vote.

His presidency will possess all the corruption, lies and ill repute of the Clinton years, along with Gore's ruinous policies of high taxes, overwhelmingly big government, unaffordable gas prices and a devastated military. He has proved that in difficult times he will do what is best for himself, his power and his legacy, and the country be damned. His dishonesty in acquiring the presidency will not win him respect from our allies; and, since there is no honor among thieves, our enemies will not respect or fear him, they will laugh at him and mock the fallen, corrupt status of America. A Gore presidency is America's worst nightmare come true.

At home, Gore will never unite the country. In fact, had he won his own state, we wouldn't even have this current crisis, but the people who know Gore the best value him the least and fear him the most. Bush is the lawful winner of the presidency, and he should stay and fight to maintain the honesty and integrity of this office.

Gore's manipulation grows more obvious and less obscure, even to the political neophyte. Americans are not impressed or swayed by handfuls of rent-a-mob union hacks and Democratic loyalists demonstrating in targeted cities, holding signs of pathetically distorted truths. Americans of honor who live decent lives and want to teach their children well will not embrace a man who steals the office of presidency.
