Letter to the Editor
GOP conventions have sure changed over the years. There’s a lot of things you don’t hear about anymore that the Republicans used to at least give lip service to. What you don’t hear is the words Balanced Budget anymore. They no longer talk of Paying off the National Debt, Where is the Social Security Lock Box. We are not debating what we are going to do with the surplus like we were 4 years ago. The only new idea he introduced was federal funding of churches.
In spite of all the talk of terrorism and 9-11 – not once did Bush mention the name of Osama bin Laden. That tells me that Bush isn’t serious about getting the guy who actually attacked America. We have a president who can’t identify the enemy.
He talks about our soldiers confronting terrorists – but the terrorists aren’t in Iraq and never were. Our soldiers were sent to fight in the wrong country. All in all – Bush’s speech was pretty weak compared to the other speaker like Democrat Zell Miller and the pro-choice liberal Republicans who dominated the GOP convention. If this is a poker game – Bush is playing with an empty hand.
