In 2004, Bush used 'You don't change leaders mid-war' to justify another term.

Jan. 22, 2004 | ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) -- President Bush, focusing on a subject sure to be prominent in his re-election campaign, said Thursday his administration is notching successes in the war against terrorism but will not let up while danger lingers.

--snip--

....The president also ticked off national security accomplishments under his watch: no new terrorist attacks on American soil, the toppling of dangerous governments in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the capture of Saddam Hussein and several al-Qaida leaders.

He did not mention that al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden remains at large, despite a near-constant U.S. manhunt. Nor did Bush dwell on the continuing violence and difficulties in both Iraq and difficulties in Afghanistan. Still, he warned that a threat from terrorism still exists -- making the unspoken suggestion that changing the commander in chief mid-battle wouldn't be wise.

"There's terrorists still plotting against us," he said. "By our will, by our steadfast determination, by our courage, we will prevail in the war, the first war of the 21st century."


**SIGH**

Some things change. Some things never change.
