Bush is on the attack -- against Democrats

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Bush is on live on CNN giving that same political campaign speech about terror -- and he's already invoking "September the 11th." (We know why FOX, as the GOP network, covers every utterance from Bush. But why do CNN and the other cable networks carry this same political speech over and over and over?)

The Prez sure is talking tough these days. But it's all politics. The man cannot find the time to devise a strategy for Iraq. He can't even be honest about the quagmire. But he can launch vicious political attacks like this one from a speech yesterday:

"Five years after 9/11, the worst attack on the American homeland in our history, Democrats offer nothing but criticism and obstruction and endless second-guessing," the president said.
Endless second-guessing? It's called oversight and the failed Iraq policy and the botched war on terror desperately need some second guessing. Bush wants to stay the course. That's his whole agenda...well, that plus ugly political attacks.

Bush is playing politics with terror against the backdrop of increased violence in Iraq, a deteriorating situation in Afghanistan and a growing jihadist movement inspired by his invasion of Iraq. If the White House put as much energy in to their anti-terror strategy as they did in to their political strategy about terror, we might make some progress -- and save some lives.
