Uniting Around Unity

Seize the Mandate

I am hearing this more and more. This call to "unite America." How can Bush unite America? It isn't Bush's job to unite us. It is OUR responsibility to unite around those common ideals that have been at the core of this great experiment.

The problem is that we have made the unimportant issues the core issues around which we seek unity. Unity for unity's sake is a worthless unity. I hate to tell you this folks, but we are always going to have divisions in America. So, it is not Bush's job to unite us. His responsibility is to defend the constitution and carry out an agenda consistent with the ideals laid out in that founding document.

That being the case, it isn't the responsibility for Bush to compromise. He has the right to operate from a position of strength. The nature of this election has given him that right. The responsibility to reach out belongs to those who have sought to undermine the Bush agenda.

If they don't want to get on board, they can get left behind.
