WAR DEMOCRAT MILLER ENDORSES PRESIDENT BUSH. A solid speech was given to the RNC Convention in New York City this evening by retiring Georgia Senator Zell Miller, author of A National Party No More.

Sen. Miller was direct and stern. His sweeping condemnation of Sen. John Kerry's record over the past 30 years as an anti-war demonstrator and far left legislator really hit home. What would motivate a former Democratic Governor and a Democratic Senator like Miller to endorse President Bush? Simply put, he recognizes the threat our nation faces and he knows that President Bush will defend the country with solid leadership. Thus, he chooses to protect his family rather than advance his party.

Sen. Miller even went so far as to take a shot at former President Carter's appeasement approach to foreign policy, instead endorsing the tough stance against Communism taken by President Ronald Reagan and the aggressive approach taken against international terrorism taken by President Bush. Sen. Miller's speech was by far the toughest I've seen in the convention and served the most direct indictment of Sen. Kerry's record on military issues that I've witnessed so far. The list of military equipment that Sen. Kerry tried to put the kabosh on was itself very powerful, not to mention the ties Sen. Miller drew between Massachusetts Senators Kerry and Ted Kennedy. As Sen. Miller summed it up, discussing the misguided members of his party:

It is not their patriotism - it is their judgment that has been so sorely lacking. They claimed Carter's pacifism would lead to peace.They were wrong.They claimed Reagan's defense buildup would lead to war.They were wrong. And, no pair has been more wrong, more loudly, more often than the two Senators from Massachusetts, Ted Kennedy and John Kerry.

Well put.
