Forever September 10th

As I've read reports on the Democratic National Convention, I've noticed that precious little has been said about Afghanistan, Iraq, and the War on Terror.  It's really not much of a surprise.  Kerry's whole campaign has said little about these things and when pressed, all that he has are sweeping general criticisms of Bush's policies without an alternative. 

Most Americans want more than what the other guy is doing wrong.  They want an alternate plan to compare.  The democrats aren't strong in this.  They don't have another plan to contrast.  They, frankly, don't know what to do.  That's why they basically want the United Nations to take over foreign policies for them. 

Democrats are acting like it's September 10th, 2001 and nothing is really wrong.  They wish that the most important issues to people in this country were making sure the rich paid their share of the taxes, increasing welfare payouts, and won't someone please think of the children!

No matter how much most Americans wish we could go back to when the fear of major terrorist attacks weren't present on their minds, the fact remains we have a very dangerous and hard to fight enemy that won't rest until we all are dead.  Everybody has issues they worry about, but the issue foremost on most Americans' minds is who will make sure they'll still be around come next election.
