Our ally Pakistan is in a state of emergency today, as ordered by President Musharraf. I don’t really pay attention to political events in other countries, but apparently this has something to do with the President’s electoral victory last month. He seems to be having trouble with the activist Supreme Court which is trying to strip him of his Commander-in-Chief powers. So he shut them down. Good for him!
Perhaps this would be a good move for President Bush to emulate next year. If Giuliani or Romney become the Republican nominee and/or it appears that the Democrat nominee is going to steal the election, President Bush should just declare martial law (or a “state of emergency”) and say “Read my lips: not on my watch” and remain in office until a suitable successor can be found.
Giuliani or Romney Presidencies are unthinkable and a Democrat would mess up or surrender in the War on Terror. That would do inestimable damage to our republic. Therefore President Bush must step up and defend our nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic. It’s the right thing to do.
I’d go into the situation in Pakistan more, but foreign politics is like cold lima beans. I just scrape them off the plate and into the garbage. All the better to make room for what’s really important. If you want to know more about what’s happening, turn on Fox News.
