Tonight's Bush stew

"When things look tough for the future, you go back to what has worked in the past. George Bush’s poll numbers on Iraq continue to sink into the dark ooze of a deep ocean and the message of the Downing Street memo is seeping into the national conscience," writes the Heretik. "For those who will not have a chance to see the President speak tonight, Scott McClellan gave the short story... What a sorry stew it is suggested we eat: Commander in Chief, threat, strategy, Iraq, mission, nature of the enemy, ruthless, victory, mission. September Eleventh. Also: strategy for success, clear path to victory. September Eleventh." (The Heretik via Freiheit und Wissen)
