President Bush Hits Kerry On "Global Test"

President Bush wasted no time using one of John Kerry’s statements from last night’s debate, that the US would have to pass a “global test” before taking military action, against the logic challenged Senator. During an Allenstown, PA. rally President Bush said the following as reported by the AFP:

"The president's job is not to take an international poll. The president's job is to defend America," Bush said a day after his first debate with Kerry.

Many US voters still fume that Paris led opposition to the March 2003 invasion of Iraq (news - web sites), a move that led to boycotts of French products and the renaming of foods like "French fries" to "Freedom fries."

"The use of troops to defend America must never be subject to a veto by countries like France," Bush told supporters a day after Kerry said the United States ought to pass a "global test" before launching a preemptive war.

"Senator Kerry, last night, said that America has to pass some sort of global test before we can use American troops to defend ourselves. He wants our national security decisions subject to the approval of a foreign government.

"Listen, I'll continue to work with our allies and the international community, but I will never submit America's national security to an international test," Bush told the cheering crowd.

There is no way to interpret a “global test” any other way. President Bush will use this line from here until the lection to make people realize how John Kerry would “defend” the country.
