It's obvoius this nation is looking for a strong leader. They see him as having a bit of charisma. Something the others lack.
Sometimes it's how you carry yourself and how you look, just like when Nixon and Kennedy had that debate.
Kennedy with his all American looks and then you had Nixon with the 5:00 shadow "I'm not a crook" look.
You people really don't give him enough credit for keeping us safe. You'll appreciate it in a couple years after a Democrat has pulled us out of Iraq, Al Qaeda claims victory, attracting more support & launching a series of attacks in the states.. likely a series of suicide bombers in malls, killing woman & children. That's not a fear tactic, that's a fact.
Sad truth, but I honestly expect it to happen. Bush may have screwed up a lot, but with the state of the world I still say he was the right man for the job. These terrorists are dogs, and we need a president who will treat them as such. This PC "torture" shit is way out of hand.
The pendulum will swing back though.. I'm very confident. We'll let the Democrats remind the United States what happens when you're weak on defense.
