Don't Win, Just Get Out

In a new anti-Bush ad from the group, an American soldier is shown, rifle overhead, in a surrender pose. According to Drudge, the ad refers to the war in Iraq, saying "It will take a new president to get us out." Notice they don't say "win the war," but instead "get us out." They don't even seem to want to lend credence to the idea of winning. This is where the ultra-liberal left, politicians like Kerry, Kennedy, Pelosi and the rest, misunderstand the American public.

General George Patton understood. He said it best in his speech to the Third Army on June 5, 1944, made famous in the opening scene from the movie Patton.

"Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed... for the very idea of losing is hateful to an American."
The liberals don't understand that we Americans often DO see things in black and white. We see good versus evil, right versus wrong, strong versus week. We DO see terrorism and evil and our national defense as terribly important. We want a strong leader, who will defend our country when attacked and, whenever necessary, before it is attacked. We are the world's only superpower. We are the most powerful nation on this planet, and also the greatest force for good on this planet. We've saved the world more than once, and many nations hate us for it. So be it. We're not about nuance, fitting our comments and beliefs to our audience or the situation. We want strong and consistant leadership.

We want W.
