Dialogue with Happydayz, tnkr111 and IRR Soldier from ArmyOCS.com
We thank IRR Soldier and tnkr111 from ArmyOCS.com for participating in this discussion; we also welcome Happydayz. All of us share a desire to see our great nation succeed.
We also share a desire to see our nation's elites, broadly defined, participating in military service. Universal service is unrealistic, but increasing the proportion of Americans who personally know someone in our military is not. We thank the Army OCS Foundation for their efforts to support military leadership.
Where we don't agree 100% is how to get there from here. The reason this blog focuses on the future leaders of our governing party is simple: The American people, in the last several elections, have chosen one party to run our country, giving it control of both Houses of Congress as well as the White House; President Bush has vetoed a single bill (not on our topic).
The fact that, in the 1990s, nobody encouraged the governing party of the day (now the loyal opposition) in a similar manner is not our responsibility. After all, WE want to see President Bush succeed.
He's the decider, and he's decided that Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld will continue in office. So, it's up to us to Support Our President.
That's why we are criticizing the future leaders of our governing party, the College and Young Republicans, for failing to Support President Bush in his, and our great nation's, hour of need. If even they won't really support him, will America?
Don't worry; we'll get to the loyal opposition of the moment in due time.
