Jonathan: I understand that you have expressed some interest in having Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard and founder of PNAC to be your Secretary of Defense. Can you please elaborate on why you have thought of Kristol being in your cabinet? choice?
Rapture Ralph: [Kristol] CONTINUES TO OFFER WISE COUNSEL TO AMERICA’S GREATEST PRESIDENT, GEORGE W. BUSH!!!!!!
Ralph was of course, referring to the advice he gave to Mr. Bush in his current briefing:
The best strategy for the president is to hold firm. There is every reason to believe that he can survive the current calamity-Janes of the Republican party (does anyone really imagine that a veto-proof majority will form in the Senate this week or next?). This nonsense will pass, Congress will go on recess, and Petraeus will have a chance to continue to produce results--and the president and his allies will have a chance to gain political ground here at home. Why on earth pull the plug now? Why give in to an insane, irrational panic that will destroy the Bush administration and most likely sweep the Republican party to ruin? The president still has a chance to emerge from this as a visionary who could see what the left could not--but not if he gives in to them. There is no safety in the position some in the Bush administration are running towards.
Now that's the kind of leadership we should all look for in a Secretary of Defense! Who cares about the party drowning because of a single issue that 68% of Americans disapprove of? This is a war, dammit! There's no voicing dissent of The Leader's policies during times of war!
Just another example of Rapture Ralph leading the way in 08!
