“Nearly ten years ago, President Bush stood before the nation after 9/11 and pledged to the American people that we will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail in our quest to defeat those who intend to do us harm through acts of terror. Last night, we heard President Obama tell a very changed nation that we did not fail. What this tells all of us is that success and victory sometimes take a lot longer than we would like, sometimes it’s a lot harder than we would like, and sometimes brings about more tragedy than absolutely we would even believe. But it is our commitment to continue to do all we can to support those in our armed services and our intelligence community and this President in his quest, and theirs, to defend the American people against the spread of radical Islam and the threats that it continues to pose to our country.”
