<250 words: Bush v. Kerry

New Hugh Hewitt symposium question:
"In 250 words or less, why vote for Bush and what's wrong with Kerry?"

What’s right about Bush?

He promised a tax cut to all Americans and all Americans now pay fewer taxes.
He promised to raise standards in our schools and passed the No Child Left Behind Act.
He promised that those who harbor terrorists are just as guilty and will be captured or killed accordingly, and Saddam Hussein in sitting a jail cell, and 75% of the largest terror network in the world are dead or jailed.
He promised to promote a culture of life and passed the partial-birth abortion ban.
He promised to help seniors with their prescription drugs, and the Medicare Supplemental Drug Bill for Seniors was passed.
He promised free elections for Afghanistan, and Afghanistan has completed it’s first free election ever.

What’s wrong with Kerry?

He wants a government-run health plan that doesn’t have anything to do with the government.
Before using force, he wants to pass a truth standard/global test, but says it won’t amount to a veto.
He warns that Bush will re-instate the Draft, but wants to expand our Armed forces by 40,000.
He pledges not to raise taxes, but will “roll-back tax cuts” the moment he reaches office.
He wants to fix Social Security by not doing anything.
He wants to protect us from nuclear weapons by exporting nuclear technologies.
After two decades of never taking a leadership role in government, he wants to be the leader of the free world.

One man is a man of his word and one man is a man of just words.
