Bush:的知 campaigning like mad and I知 looking at people in the eye..."

Low blows put Bush back in contention
Sarah Baxter, Washington

THE call went out to a select band of conservative commentators last week: come to a briefing with the president in the Oval Office. Designed to flatter and create a buzz, the idea was to convey firmness of purpose about Iraq and optimism about the November congressional elections.
的知 campaigning like mad and I知 looking at people in the eye and saying, you better have a government that does everything in its power to protect you from attack. You池e right here in the office where I get briefed every morning and I知 telling you, it痴 on my mind, President George W Bush told his guests. 的 was affected deeply by the attacks of September 11 . . . I know we池e at war.

Bush revealed that he had been reading A History of the English-Speaking Peoples since 1900 by Andrew Roberts, the British historian who has written a stirring narrative about the doughty nations that took on the Nazis, the Soviet Union and now the Islamo-fascists.

At the end of the briefing Karl Rove, architect of Bush痴 2004 election victory, popped in to exude confidence about Republican prospects at elections on November 7. No matter how sombre the news from Iraq, he has faith in his game plan: trash your opponents national security credentials, challenge their fitness to govern and turn out your vote.

Bush may not be as confident as the aide known as his 澱rain. 的t痴 understood that you are allowed to lie about elections, said one of those present. 的 don稚 think he is convinced he is going to win. But the signs point to a tightening race rather than a decisive victory for the Democrats in the Senate and House of Representatives.

8. It's a British Murdoch paper
Only unlike the rest of Murdoch's British newspaper stable, the Times journalists can actually write in setences of more than two syllables. :dunce:

6. it's all politics, all the time, 24/7 with these cretins
never let it be said that the asshats wasted one molecule of brain matter worrying about the public good.
"protecting" us--what a laugh!! HELL-O! does "Katrina" ring any bells with you, fuckface? (not to mention 9/11, of course!)

14. "Bush revealed that he had been reading A History of the English-Speaking Peoples since 1900"
Since 1900? Hell, I thought George was only about 60 years old!

:P

I love the fact that all this talk about Democrats winning is making his whiskey tab really high for this month.
