  •  Bush Has Been Doing This Since Forever (4.00)
    He claims he is going to make a major policy shift, or a major announcement about Iraq.  Often, he gets the networks and the news channels to give him a prime-time podium.  Once he has everyone's attention, he delivers the follow speech:

    My fellow Americans, September the eleventh.  I'm here tonight to talk about freedom.  Iraqi freedom.  We're fightin' them over there so we don't have to fight them over here.  

    Like 9/11.  

    And it's hard work, but we're stayin' the course.  We're smokin' them out.  We're making progress.  


    We've killed al Qaeda's #3 guy.  Like seven times.  It's hard work.  There are some who oppose our effort to bring hope to the Iraqi's.  And they have a right to their unpatriotic opinions.  


    But we have a plan for victory in Iraq:  We will stay as long as we need to, and we will accept no outcome except victory!  


    We will stand down when the Iraqi's stand up.  And it's hard work.  But just remember this:  Saddam, 9/11, Nucular Bombs!  Saddam, 9/11, Nucular bombs!  Saddam, 9/11, Nucular Bombs!  Saddam, 9/11, Nucular bombs!  Saddam, 9/11, Nucular Bombs!  Saddam, 9/11, Nucular bombs!


    I never said that Saddam had anything to do with 9/11.  


    And we will stay the course in Iraq to show the men and women in uniform that those who have died have not died in vain.  Even if 20,000 more have to die to prove that 2,000 didn't die in vain, that's what we'll do.


    I'm a wartime pres'dint.  And I'm smokin' 'em out.  And it's hard work.  But I'm a wartime pres'dint.

    9/11 and good night.

    Immediately followed by Chris Matthews, Sean Hannity, Brian Williams, and a crew of others remarking about how articulate and encouraging our Wartime President was in his hugely successful, groundbreaking speech, and how he rivals Jack Kennedy or Martin Luther King, Jr. with his fantastic oratorical skills.

    It's always the same script; hell, Bush doesn't even need to show up anymore.  They can just phone the networks and say, "You know that last primetime speech we did?  Can you just re-run that?  Thanks."

    "George W. Bush has helped those who have most, hurt those who have least and ignored everyone in between."
    Wesley Clark
