Channel 16 has been showing Bush's fundraising visit for Don Sherwood all afternoon. I think Sherwood's campaign should be charged the standard advertising rate for all this publicity.
Bush is speaking now and is saying the Republicans will keep taxes low and protect the country. He said he was Sherwood's 2nd choice to campaign for him but sends Laura's love and that he read Carol Sherwood's letter and was touched by it. I almost cried. Now he's fearmongering. Same old stuff. "Fight them over there or we will have to fight them over here. We have to be right 100% of the time," blah, blah. He defended torture, trashing habeas corpus, wiretapping and the Patriot Act. He just said he knows what Osama thinks, he must talk to him a lot. On Iraq we must wage war to ensure world peace (Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia) and endorsed Joe Leiberman. It would dishonor our troops if we withdraw from Iraq before victory is achieved-he didn't define "victory." Now he is trying to make Nancy Pelosi into a bogeyman and repeated the lie that the Democrats want to wait to be attacked before doing something about terrorism. He invoked God, Elvis and his Dad. My teeth are starting to hurt.
