In the 80s there were “Reagan Democrats”. Ron Silver shows (in addition to Zell Mill, who we’ll hear later) that 2004 may be the year that “Bush Democrats” tip the scales.

Even though I am a well-recognized liberal on many issues confronting our society today, I find it ironic that many human rights advocates and outspoken members of my own entertainment community are often on the front lines to protest repression, for which I applaud them but they are usually the first ones to oppose any use of force to take care of these horrors that they catalogue repeatedly. Under the unwavering leadership of President Bush, the cause of freedom and democracy is being advanced by the courageous men and women serving in our Armed Services.

The President is doing exactly the right thing. That is why we need this President at this time! I am grateful for the chance to speak tonight to express my support for our Commander-in-Chief, for our brave troops, and for the vital cause which they have undertaken. General Dwight Eisenhower’s statement of 60 years ago is true today . . . “United in this determination and with unshakable faith in the cause for which we fight, we will, with God’s help, go forward to our greatest victory.”

Dubya will get their attention with his proper and principled stance on the War on Terror, and he’ll keep them with the growing economy. His speech at the end of the week should emulate Reagan’s approach; optimism for the future by giving people more control of their lives, taking that control away from government, and leaving government to its proper, constitutional role. One of those roles is fighting to protect us from those who would attack us. He’s got all cylinders firing. He just needs to share that with the American people.
