The Strongest Nation

21 January 2005

President Bush was re-elected this past November and was sworn into office for another four years yesterday. His views of the world, America’s values and our role in the world are clear and clearly communicated. Some people like that and others do not.

Take a look at two different views – first, this one, then, this one – (would you call these interpretations?) of the second inaugural address.

Some people are continuing to struggle with how the majority in this country see things and how they vote. They have problems with America being the strongest nation. To those who prefer that America stand down from its position of strength, I’d suggest a careful reading of each line in the speech – not the lines between the lines. Read the lines all of us can see. Tell me which line (or lines) is not factual or true or an optimistic view of our role in the world.
