Must-Read Interview

In the "Good Day For Following Links" Department, I followed one from Michelle Malkin's blog to Radio Blogger, where an interview with Victor Davis Hanson, author, writer of newspaper and magazine articles, book reviews, op-eds and Senior Fellow of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, by Hugh Hewitt of Hugh Hewitt.com.

This interview is an absolute must-read, excellent questions and answers, the interviewee both highly informed and possessing a first class analytical mind that gets right to the heart of things. It's about how serious our government is about fighting the Global War On Terror(GWOT).

The interview transcript is here.

Here is a quote I think refutes just about every argument the Democrats use against the Bush Administration regarding the GWOT and the economy.

"...we have more gross revenues coming in after the tax cut than before. The deficit's going down. The problem is spending, not a revenue problem. Within four weeks after 9/11, we conducted this sophisticated military campaign seven thousand miles away. And in less than seven weeks, we took out that God-awful regime, and put democracy where it had never existed before. We took Saddam out in three weeks. We stayed on to try to create a democratic government . There's change in Lebanon, Syria, places like Libya, Pakistan'snuclear roguery is being exposed. So, it(the mainstream Democratic Party)'s just oblivious to that. But it is symptomatic that we've had a midterm election, we've had another election since 9/11, and the electorate, even after the unleashing of the New York Times, CBS, Michael Moore, the electorate still doesn't trust Democrats."  

Read the entire transcript, it's worth it...
