OH, YE OF LITTLE FAITH
I am gloating. I am gloating because Bush once again proved those lying bastards on the Left wrong. Bush proved the naysayers wrong by having faith: faith in the American people to support his war on terrorism, because it was the right thing to do; faith in our brave troops to get the job done; and ultimately he had faith in the Iraqi people, and their yearning to be free, to have the courage to vote. I’m tired of maintaining a proper demeanor in the face of evil, abroad and especially right in our own backyard, so UP YOURS you f’n bastards! (Pardon my French.) The kicker is I believe that Bush probably doesn't care if he gets credit or not. Like Reagan, he doesn't care who gets the credit as long as the job gets done.

There are literally millions of Americans who are unhappy today because millions of Iraqis went to the polls yesterday. And why? Because this isn't just a success for Bush. It's a huge win. It's a colossal vindication.
It's a big fat gigantic winning vindication of the guy that the Moores and Kennedys and millions of others still can't believe anybody voted for.
At the worst possible time to express pessimistic skepticism, Kerry did just that. The election only had a "kind of legitimacy," he said. He said he "was for the election taking place" (how big of him!), but then said that "it's gone as expected."
Is Kerry perhaps saying he was for the election before he was against it?
Kerry views the results in Iraq as being less legitimate than, say, the opinions about U.S. conduct in Iraq as expressed to him by "Arab leaders." In a truly jaw-dropping moment, he told Tim Russert approvingly of his conversations with those self-same Arab leaders — Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and King Abdullah of Jordan among them — who expressed concerns about the Bush administration's approach in Iraq.
