BUSH WINS!

 

By Dave Andrusko

With the network talking heads all singing the same refrain - - that Florida had gone to pro-abortion Vice President Al Gore - - with much gusto and without a note of uncertainty, it was broadly hinted, when it was not virtually said in so many words, that pro-life Texas Gov. George W. Bush was history.

Some would bitterly complain of a double standard: that the networks dragged their feet in projecting success in states that everyone knew would go strongly for Bush, but jumped in with both feet to predict Gore's triumph in Florida, which common sense said was dicey, given that everyone knew the outcome was going to be very, very close. And surely, it seemed odd that the networks would make such a crucial prediction when there were already inklings something was amiss.

Thank You One and All!

By Carol Tobias, NRL PAC Director

T
he story of Raimundo Rojas is the perfect example of how pro- life hope and determination can change the world.

Hundreds of thousands of you helped win last month's elections. Your countless hours of volunteer work, your sacrificial donations, your personal involvement mean unborn children will have a strong pro-life voice in the White House for the next four years.

In telling Rai's story, I am saying "thank you" to each and every one of you who made a difference.

From the President

Wanda Franz, Ph.D.

FINALLY!

A lot of people are expressing great concern about the credibility of the U.S. Supreme Court, as if the current election crisis were of its own making. Before Al Gore, we never had a presidential candidate who asked the courts to hand him the presidency. Judicial restraint sometimes involves restraining state courts who won't restrain themselves.

--Law Professors James Lindgren and Randy E. Barnett (12/14/2000 on nationalreview.com)

Vice President Al Gore's concession speech was gracious, even humorous, and well delivered. You and I and most other people in the country surely were relieved to hear it. It was just too late by a month--a month of hanging and dimpled chads, of personal attacks on those who stood in the way of a daring "vote- mining" scheme, of endless political spin, and of legal maneuvering that in the end proved to be self-defeating. Let's be plain: there was no need for any of this.

In the end, what was rightfully to happen became official: George W. Bush is the president-elect. And we are glad that it is so.
