Reckless Disregard

I have just finished my review copy of Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson’s book “Reckless Disregard” and it has solidified my belief that George W. Bush is the man needed in the Oval Office.

Buzz Patterson documents the failings of the Carter-Clinton-Kerry democrats and their culpability with the terrorist threat to our National Security. He holds no punches and tells it like it is. If you are wavering on who to vote for come November, you definitely need to read this book.

It is an eye opener.

UPDATE: Regnery Publishing just sent me two more books for review – In Defense of Internment by Michelle Malkin and Speaker by Dennis Hastert. I was gonna sit down with my copy of William F. Buckely’s latest this weekend, but these two look pretty enticing also. Hmmm…decision, decisions….

  1. The other day Tommy Franks the general was on the radio. Said when asked by the 911 commission, what went wrong, he started with the 1980 marine base in Lebanon, and recounted all the major attacks from there.
    So you better add Reagan and Bush I to your little list.
    But your list is irrelevant and so is the past, someone out there better start looking to the future.
    And a future with Bush II looks bleak.

  2. If you judge everything on the single fact of whether someone has an (R) or (D) after their name, yes, things do look bleak if the guys with (D) after their names lose.

    However, I can’t help suspect that the same world you view as spiraling out of control would look orderly and just if your candidate were in the White House. The summer that’s too hot and the winter that’s too cold might well become “just right” with no measurable changes in temperature.

  3. For me it’s not the (R) or the (D) It’s the policy and it’s effect that I worry about.
    According to Bush we need:
    Faith based Initiative -God told him so
    Restrict Abortions – God told him so
    End Stem Cell Research – God told him so
    In my book that’s three strikes and your out.

  4. No, it’s the one strike of not being an atheist, based on your iteration of the “God told him so”. Since Kerry apparently isn’t an atheist either, we can look forward to your opposition of him as well.

  5. Murel Bailey,

    If Kerry tries to impose his religious belief on the rest of us, then yes, you can be sure that I will be here calling him on it.
    I really don’t care what anyone’s religion or system of belief is as long as they don’t try to impose them on me.
    I have my own beliefs and I will share them with you if you like but I would never make any decisions on your behalf based on my religious beliefs.
    But for the most part I find that the presidents faith based thing is a danger to the separation issues and a danger to religions themselves. Can you imagine federal regulation that will force your church to hire a rabbi or an imam, ala equal employment act.
    How exactly is that supposed to work, it will either destroy the employment act or the freedoms of religion.
    Anyway you look at it it’s bad policy

  6. “Can you imagine federal regulation that will force your church to hire a rabbi or an imam, ala equal employment act.”
    You mean like how Christian organizations are being forced to hire homosexuals, whether they want to or not? If so, I don’t have to imagine it; it’s more or less already here.

    Faith based Initiative -God told him so
    Please explain how the Faith-Based Initiative serves to impose a system of religion on the American people as a whole (and use examples, please).
    Restrict Abortions – God told him so
    Okay, so you like abortions. I can give you a lot of reasons for severely curtailing the outpatient availability of abortions; none of them religious, and the majority of them based on medical data.
    End Stem Cell Research – God told him so
    I’m not sure where you get the idea that Bush wants to “end stem cell research”. He has restricted the use of federal funds for the creation of new stem cell lines (that is, embryos that are slated to be used for the sole purpose of having their stem cells harvested). Scientific firms are free to use as many private dollars to fund embryonic stem cell research as they can acquire. The problem that the embryonic stem cell researchers have run into is that investors are hesitant to pony up the dough for research that shows comparatively little promise (for starters, embryonic stem cells tend to become cancerous when they are applied to an adult host). Especially when Adult stem cells are showing remarkable promise for treating a large variety of medical conditions, including quadroplegia.

  7. Please explain how the Faith-Based Initiative serves to impose a system of religion on the American people as a whole (and use examples, please).

    I never made that claim so why should I defend it?
    I said, and I believe you quoted, that federal regulation would not work well in churches. For the life of me I can’t see why anyone would want to bring federal dollars, with all the federal strings into religious organization??

    Okay, so you like abortions.
    I never said that either.
    I can give you a lot of reasons for severely curtailing the outpatient availability of abortions;

    I think we are only talking about late term here. there were 5000 late term abortions in the whole country before the new restriction were put in place. But the late term abortions were never really legal there was a loop hole for saving a woman’s life. 5000 cases a real national emergency so these nut bag closed the loop hole.
    So now If it’s your wife’s life or LTA your out of luck, start looking for a new wife. not good policy in my opinion. When I walk into my doctors office I wan his advise, not the governments opinion. If I wanted that I’d call my congressman.

    He has restricted the use of federal funds for the creation of new stem cell lines
    Why? why did he do it. there are millions of embryos in the freezers of fertility clinics waiting to get flushed down a toilet. How is that a better thing to do than to use these cells to improve our knowledge of something as important as stem cells. sure adult stem cells have shown promise but finding them has been a challenge, till very recently. You have to compare with the embryonic lines, or you have no way to weed out any environmental differences between the two.
    Remember we are not talking treatment of any kind here, we are talking the basic research, the other day I was reading that they still can not effectively identify stem cells yet. So we don’t even have the thing properly identified yet, but were banning away. And yes restricting federal dollars is a restriction. I want my federal dollars going for all the research that the federal government can buy. Or at least a better reason than the, Pope said it was bad.
