Today, citizens of this country are confronted with a record realized under the Bush Administration. Karl Rove, "The Architect" of the Bush campaign claims no responsibility for the cause or effect of his chief candidate's actions. Nor does he acknowledge that his Grand Old Party might be answerable for accounts receivable. However, others, those common folks less connected to the current Administration might disagree. In an ominous moment, on a San Francisco stage Americans were given the opportunity to look into the future and remember earlier days and dictums.
Perhaps, I was not alone. I stood watching the images and listening to the discussion; I was mesmerized. Senator and Presidential candidate John McCain stood, straight faced, and stated, Iraq, specifically the Green Zone is safe. Perchance the Wizard, the once magical McCain, is hiding behind the curtain, oblivious to the strife that exists daily in the world of Oz.
Michael Ware, Cable News Network Correspondent has spent more than one short day in the Emerald City. He rebuffs the senior Senators claim. The battle is on, or perhaps, it is only continuing. Is the mission in Iraq accomplished or aggravated by the presence of America troops. Stay tuned.
Though I did not see or hear the dialogue, when I heard of it, I was struck. Senator John McCain, a former Prisoner of War, admittedly, does not always agree with the President. However, today, this compassionate conservative offered his support.
In an interview aired on Fox News the Senator stated, “I have seen him, I have seen his care, and I have seen him grieve. And I'm sure he wouldn't like to hear me say this, but I saw him afterwards. He was very, very grieved. And that's the job of the President of the United States. He fully appreciates the tragedy of the loss of these brave young Americans.”
However, Cindy Sheehan does not believe that Mr. Bush cares.
• If you have not before, Please listen to Cindy and hear her plea. Look into her eyes; see her face, her tears, and her pain. Again, I offer the link to an advertisement paid for by the Gold Star Families for Peace. I think this a worthwhile viewing. The singular spokesperson is Cindy Sheehan. She speaks to the President and asks him to care as he has not in the past.
