When in doubt, Chimpy brings up spectre of 9/11
“They know that if we do not confront these evil men abroad, we will have to face them one day in our own cities and streets, and they know that the safety and security of every American is at stake in this war, and they know we will prevail.”— your President, working hard bicycling with Lance Armstrong
Since he cannot defend his disastrous Iraq policy, the Chimperor goes back to the only thing he believes will jerk the public back into line to support him — 9/11. How many times can he go back to that well?
Bush Begins 5-Day Push to Defend Iraq War. In his weekly radio address, Bush argued that the war in Iraq will keep Americans safe for generations to come. He’ll try to drive the point home with speeches in upcoming days in Utah and Idaho.
Bush “working hard” on fighting terror with Lance Armstrong.
“Our troops know that they’re fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere to protect their fellow Americans from a savage enemy,” the president said in the recorded broadcast.
“We’re spreading the hope of freedom across the broader Middle East,” Bush said. “By advancing the cause of liberty in a troubled region, we are bringing security to our own citizens and laying the foundations of peace for our children and grandchildren.”
I guess Bush is referring to the spread of “freedom” to men only, because if the constitution that Iraq is coming up with passes, it is going to result in fewer civil rights for women than under the secular government of Saddam.
