I second lucadrina's response to this entry. The mark of a great president is not how much he does what the people want, but how much he goes against popular opinion to do what is right. He kept us safe after 9/11. He led us in a war that we were desperate to lose. He tried to meet the Democrat Congress halfway, while they never once budged on their goals. I'm so thankful for this man.
Still, I want to be a good representative of the Republican party. I will not deprive Obama of the fair opportunity that Bush was deprived of. I will not write him off as a bad president before he takes office. I will work to make his administration a peaceful time. I will do my best to stand behind him. I will point out when he does something wrong, just as I did when Bush was considering that stupid North American Union idea and the immigration issue. I will be fair. I love my country. And that's what matters. Not the man in office. It's more than that. It's about that star-spangled banner we wave. It's about liberty. It's about people. And hopefully, our friends from the other side will observe our behavior and learn from it.
God bless America! And thank you, President Bush!!
