Pres. Bush in Canada


PRES BUSH IN CANADA

The bad news is that many Canadians suffer from the deadly disease of anti-Americanism.

The good news is that Prime Minister Paul Martin is not one of them.

My guess is that PM Martin has read the US election results in exquisite detail.

Martin is a liberal but he is not a stupid liberal.

Martin does not want Canada to turn into another France in the eyes of the 61 million people who voted for Bush.

After all, 61 million Americans may be "dumb" but they buy a lot of Canadian goods and services.


As I said, Martin is a liberal but he is not a stupid liberal.

Martin understands that the Liberal Party went too far in supporting Kerry.

Canadian liberals violated the cardinal rule of geopolitics:


Don't get involved in your neighbors' elections.

And if you do, pray to God (or whatever they pray to in secular Canada) that your side wins.

Sorry Canada. Your guy lost.


But Canada lost too!

Canada has very few friends among the guys who won the elections of '00, '02 and '04.

Canada is isolated from the US governing majority.

Martin is a political realist and understands electoral numbers.

Bush won a majority of the popular vote, the first one to do it since Bush '88.


Bush is the first President since FDR to increase seats in back to back elections.

Bush carried 98 of the top 100 fastest growing counties in the US.

Bush carried 31 states. What does this mean? There are 62 Senators who represent states carried by Bush.


Bush carried 26 of the 31 states by margins in excess of 20 points. That's a lot of Americans buying Canadian goods and services!

The Republicans now control the Senate, 55-44-1. There are 16 Democrats up for reelection in '06 and they are aware of Tom Daschle's fate.

The latest Gallup has Bush at 55%.

Who is going to carry Canada's water in the US Senate? I have no idea and neither does Paul Martin.

The liberal spin is that Bush went to Canada to mend fences. That's about 20% truth. The other 80% is that Martin wants to mend fences.

Bush was elected and reelected without Canada. Martin can not keep his job without American consumers.

So look for a cordial relationship between Martin and Bush.

Martin will bring Canada closer to the US, which is good for both sides.

Pres. Lincoln-----Thanksgiving 1863


Thanksgiving Day 1863 Proclamation by President Abraham Lincoln:

The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God.

In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle, or the ship; the axe had enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.

And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.

Abraham Lincoln

THE MAP IN WASHINGTON STATE

THE REPUBLICAN WINS WASHINGTON'S GOVERNOR RACE BY 42 VOTES.

HAVE YOU LOOKED AT THE COUNTY BY COUNTY MAP AVAILABLE IN REAL CLEAR POLITICS?

IT LOOKS LIKE A MAP OF THE US. THE CITIES ARE BLUE AND THE REST OF THE STATE IS RED.

SOMEONE NEEDS TO TELL THE DEMOCRATS THAT THERE ARE VOTERS OUTSIDE OF THE CITIES......MORE VOTERS IN FACT!
