Liberals-Fainting Goats

The instant I heard George Bush utter these words from his inaugural speech…. “We have seen our vulnerability - and we have seen its deepest source. For as long as whole regions of the world simmer in resentment and tyranny - prone to ideologies that feed hatred and excuse murder - violence will gather, and multiply in destructive power, and cross the most defended borders, and raise a mortal threat. There is only one force of history that can break the reign of hatred and resentment, and expose the pretensions of tyrants, and reward the hopes of the decent and tolerant, and that is the force of human freedom. We are led, by events and common sense, to one conclusion: The survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands. The best hope for peace in our world is the expansion of freedom in all the world.”….I knew the Far Left would become “fainting goats” because suddenly their fear of American imperialism/global domination was a reality. George Bush had said so himself. He’s going to take over the world and France is going to hate us even more.

And when the Left heard George Bush proclaim…..“This is not primarily the task of arms, though we will defend ourselves and our friends by force of arms when necessary.”…..visions of the end of the world and America as we know it burst into their minds and they ran to the medicine cabinet for their trusted bottles of Prozac. Finding that was not enough to dull the fears churning inside them they hit instant dial on their cell phones and made emergency appointments with their therapists. Some doubted they’d survive the night without experiencing a total meltdown. George Bush was going to take over the world. Their prophecy was coming true. Oh…the inhumanity of it all!

Unfortunately, the Far Left didn’t hear the entire inaugural speech. They had fainted dead away before Bush finished. But even if they’ve read it after they were revived, they wouldn’t understand its profound meaning anyway. They won’t acknowledge real wisdom and vision coming from a Republican president, especially this president. Click here to watch and listen to a voice that “moves” the Left.

George Bush in his wisdom said these things to the outlaw regimes of the world:

1. America will not support or prop-up any rogue leader of a country that oppresses, murders or tortures to stay in power or otherwise tyrannizes its people for our own strategic interest as we did during and after the Cold War.
2. America will support those who want to change the political culture of their country from totalitarianism to a democracy. Bush said, “When you stand for your liberty, we will stand with you.”
3. America has determined, under George Bush, freedom is the antidote to terrorism.

But the Left interpreted this historic speech as a twisted proclamation of American aggression. They heard the sound of beating war drums. They don’t believe in the ideal of freedom for all people or its curative effects. You see, they don’t believe in the goodness of America nor do they trust its judgment. To the Left, America is not redeemable and our brand of freedom is as stifling as any tyranny. And that my friend is an ideology in need of a therapist.
