The President who cried "Wolf!"
Wesley Powell, a bartcop nation poster, makes an interesting point:
There may come a time in the next term when America will truly need to use military force somewhere for national security reasons. If that case was to arise, ANYONE would be better to have in there than Bush. Bush, in military terms, is now officially a lame duck. And would be next term as well. Can you picture Bush trying to make the case for any further military action anywhere, for any reason? It would be a catastrophe. The international community would totally line up against us. Wouldn't even get Tony Blair next time. Even a substantial element of the republican party would balk, thinking Bush may be leading the entire party off the cliff, similar to post Watergate. So in case our military may have to be used for serious, legitimate purposes sometime between 2004 and 2008, the only logical choice is Kerry. For our national security.
