Regarding this paragraph:
"Based on Bush’s speech this week, here is my conclusion (which will probably guarantee I’ll never eat lunch in this town again): George W. Bush is the most eloquent president since John F. Kennedy."
Does it somewhat depress you that in order to be an affiliated person in good social standing in the non-Orthodox streams of U.S. Jewish organizations, you pretty much have to have concurrent membership in the Democratic party, listen to Democratic talking points, which are just anti and sorely lacking in any alternate suggestions... what to do about this other than dis-affiliate?

Heck, don't worry so much. Skipping lunch and having a cold one and peanuts does your body good.

Besides, if you want to get a good lunch, come on down here and I'll make sure you get filled up on good b-b-q, tater salad, coldslaw, red beens and hot peppers.

And a big glass of Ice Tea or cold beer of your choice.

Re the following:

"Based on Bush’s speech this week, here is my conclusion (which will probably guarantee I’ll never eat lunch in this town again): George W. Bush is the most eloquent president since John F. Kennedy."

In many ways I agree with your insight. What is utterly stunning to me is the desire of many of his political opponents to negate whatever he says. He has clearly laid out a philosophy of individual worth (whether it is the font of liberty or liberty is the font of that worth I cannot say) that should be uniformly applauded in the world, yet his detractors have found it more expedient to lie with those who most oppose that philosophy. It is utterly revealing of the bankruptcy of their morals that the Left has so largely adopted the position that 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend.'

Good for President Bush. Good for us. We need the President, no matter which party he represents, to show us in a good light.

Instead of working with our President, a good man who has done the best possible job for the country during a time of peril, the fiercely partisan Democrats have (again) chosen the low road, out of cheap ambition.

The Democrat Party has had many low points in history, but at this point they have hit rock bottom.

It's one thing to fight a foreign enemy, but when you have to fight the enemy at home . . . we get what we have now.

Democracy isn't so wonderful, and the neo-Wilsonian and post-Trotskyist missionaries for democracy on the whole have not done the world a service.

The rule of law and limited government, fine. The ability to vote the present set of rascals out and new ones in, also ok.

Democracy tends to lead kleptocracy, egalitarian redistributionism, socialism, stagnation and tyranny. Or to put it another way, every snout in the public trough and the Nanny State in one's life.

The mantra that democracies don't fight each other is also false.

The anti-war left are despicable in many ways, but that doesn't make the now-jingoist GOP any wiser.

We need to exorcise the ghost of the evil Wilson, stop trying to run the world and invite the world, and keep our powder dry.
