Resolute Bush Sticking With Colts As Super Bowl Pick
WASHINGTON, DC--Striking a familiar tone of determination and resolve, President Bush said yesterday that he was holding firm to his prediction that the Indianapolis Colts will win the Super Bowl this year. Though most experts abandoned the Colts after they were eliminated in the divisional playoffs, Bush urged Americans to stay the course and be resolute.

One month ago I predicted the Colts would win the AFC and then go on to win the Super Bowl, Bush said during his weekly radio address. Turns out they were beaten by the Patriots, but you know what? If I had to pick again, I would pick the Colts, even with the knowledge that they were going to lose. Folks, a lot of people say I should reverse course, but now is not the time to cut and run. We must be resolute, we must stand firm, and we must hold fast to the path we have chosen. Please join me in offering support to the Indianapolis Colts. Thank you, and God bless America .

Bushs view on the Super Bowl has drawn heavy criticism from Democrats, and even some Republicans, who wonder how the President can throw his support behind a team that wont even compete in the Superbowl.

However, those in his inner circle stood firmly by their bosss assertions.

Am I backing the Colts? Absolutely, with every fiber of my being, said defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld. The President believes in sticking to his guns and thats one of the things I admire most about him. Sure it would be easy to look at the situation logically and say that the Colts have no chance of winning a game they wont even be playing, but logic is for liberals and Europeans. Were all about resoluteness, fortitude, and defiance, even when faced with factual evidence that contradicts everything we believe to be true.

5. Darn Websense!!
I can't view the whole article because stupid Websense filters it for "radio". If I try to go to thebrushback.com, it filters it for the word "Rush".

Oh well, the part I could read was funny.
