"Since September 11th, 2001..."
Bush is giving another "please raise my approval ratings" speech to explain why we need to "stay the course." He mentioned 9/11 about 15 times, justifying the Iraq invasion by saying this war came to our shores that day. I guess the reason his numbers keep sinking lower and lower is because people are starting to wake up to the fact that Iraq had nothing to DO with 9/11, even as stated by Bush himself when pressed about it years ago. He makes me SICK with his talk of 9/11 and how "they" hate our freedom!

1. People are sick and tired
of hearing the numbers of people being killed. Funny how he keeps mentioning 9-11. It's incredible a lot of those people don't see the lie in that.

2. 9/11 happened on HIS WATCH!!!
I can't figure out how he and the Rove spin machine have managed to turn 9/11 into an asset. It happened on his watch and no one was fired for intelligence failures. Never let anyone get away with mentioning 9/11 without asking why BushCo hasn't been held accountable for it!

4. The Repugs are certainly good at their lies
and manipulation. It's incredible how good they are at it.

7. They blame Clinton.
I've seen many Repubs. say that Bush was only in office 9 months so it couldn't have been his fault. Even though the Aug. 6th PDB was shown to HIM (not Clinton) and Tenet was "running around with his hair on fire" to try to get Bush to take it seriously. Also, right after 9/11 the country "rallied around" him since he's supposedly our leader and he DID promise to get BIN LADEN dead or alive. So to connect 9/11 to Iraq, he hopes to bring back those feelings of anger against the terrorists. Luckily, though, more and more people are waking up to his lies still connecting 9/11 to Iraq.

3. I do
believe that he is now going to be on tv more, making more speaches etc...why...because of Cindy Sheehan...

He couldn't face her...he had to run to Idaho (isn't that ironic...that he's a ho and he went to Idaho?)...anyway...

She has got his nuts in a ringer...and now he's paying for it...it's my guess that he will be making more and more appearances and speeches because Cindy Sheehan has him shaking in his fake cowboy boots...!!!

5. Did ya watch the Dbacks lose last night?
I couldn't bear to watch it all..

He's terrified of Cindy Sheehan! Also he's not capable of dealing with dissent. That's why his speeches are staged with hardliner Repugs.
