The Titanic Analogy
Ahhh, what a beautiful morning here in Washington.
This morning I heard Rep. Mark Foley, R-Fla give his assessment of the presidential election:
"John Kerry is a military man, he should recognize a sinking ship."We at the Sons of the Republic have often likened the Kerry campaign unto the Titanic, listing sharply to port (the left) and taking on water.
America has spoken, and at least 51% of Americans want President Bush back in office. Kerry and his minions will undoubtedly consider lawyering 130,000 votes out of Ohio to hijack this election. They may even recognize their stinging defeat, but drag America through an agonizing recount and series of court battles which will disgust and frustrate the American voter, in an attempt to undermine the legitimacy of Bush's presidency. That would be unwise, since, as I have previously stated, this is not 2000. There is a clear winner in this election, and Americans will not have the patience to muddle through another election controversy.
It all amounts to rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. Senator Kerry should understand that he put up a good fight. His campaign took him farther than I ever thought he would make it. And just like the 50+ presidential hopefuls who have lost over the course of the years, John Kerry should be a statesman, bow out of the race that he knows he has lost, and, in the words of his long-forgotten campaign theme, "let America be America again."
