Bush Repaired the Damage To America


Bush Repaired the Damage To America
Don Surber

On June 27, Sen. Hillary Clinton spoke at the Center for a New American Security: "We can repair the damage that has been done to our security and our standing over these past six years. We can rebuild our alliances and restore our moral authority, and reestablish our leadership in the world. And by doing so, we can forge a new American security for this new century," Mrs. Clinton said.

What in the devil was the woman talking about? The idea that our allies abandoned us is more Clintonian spin.

Let's look at the facts. In the past year, Canada elected a conservative prime minister, who of course is pro-American. Britain replaced the pro-American Tony Blair with the pro-American Gordon Brown. And South Korea, which had an anti-American streak a mile wide in 2002, elected the retired head of Hyundai, Lee Myung-bak, as its president. He's pro-American as well.

Mrs. Clinton's ridiculous statement came less than six weeks after France elected as its president Nicolas Sarkozy, who calls himself - unabashedly - L'Americain. Until last year, I never imagined that there would be a day when the French elected as their president the most pro-American Frenchman since LaFayette.L'Americain won 53 percent of the vote. That is a higher percentage than any Democratic presidential candidate has received since Lyndon Baines Johnson in 1964.

In fact, only one Democratic candidate in the last 40 years received a majority of the popular vote: Jimmy Carter in 1976. The reason for Democratic minority votes is Democrats continue to fail the security test. Bush gets it. So do the allies.

They'll do anything to make President Buh look bad - they don't care what they do to America. Everything they do in the service of themselves.
