George Do-Over Bush Wants Another Crack At It
Advertisements [?]
NEW YORK - An unpopular war and 1.1 million lost jobs is enough to kill a presidency, so President Bush tried Thursday night to make the election about something else: himself and his leadership style.


Reluctant to admit mistakes, Bush copped to a few arrogant, too blunt and grammatically challenged and explained them away with laugh lines. But he didn't give an inch on the matters that matter most, a war in Iraq that has cost the lives of nearly 1,000 U.S. troops, and a job-loss record that rivals Herbert Hoover.


He'll simplify the tax code (who wouldn't?) and put health centers in every poor county (why not?) , but he didn't say how. Some of the ideas were leftovers from his first term: health savings accounts and allowing workers to privatize parts their Social Security (news - web sites).

After months of courting conservatives, Bush dusted off his four-year-old "compassionate conservative" slogan and a poll-tested agenda to boot.

This is real life, George, you don't get a second chance!
