Weigh this, please. BUSH announces 60-day, 60-stop tour for Soc. Security
Advertisements [?]
WEDNESDAY: "The Bush administration announced Wednesday a 60-day, 60-stop barnstorming tour to promote the president's plan for overhauling Social Security."

THURSDAY: "President Bush made rare mention of Osama bin Laden on Thursday, calling efforts to block the terrorist leader's hope of attacking America again "the greatest challenge of our day. Bin Laden's message is a telling reminder that al-Qaida still hopes to attack us on our own soil," he said.


Hello, how can one be prancing around the country on a SIXTY-DAY tour to build one's "legacy" and reward one's rich business donors if we are under such a dire terror cloud?
