Bush comes out swinging

From The Washington Times:

SUGAR LAND, Tex., Oct. 30 -- President Bush said terrorists will win if Democrats win and impose their policies on Iraq, as he and Vice President Cheney escalated their rhetoric Monday in an effort to turn out Republican voters in next week's midterm elections.


"However they put it, the Democrat approach in Iraq comes down to this: The terrorists win and America loses," Bush told a raucous crowd of about 5,000 GOP partisans packed in an arena at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, one of his stops Monday. "That's what's at stake in this election. The Democrat goal is to get out of Iraq. The Republican goal is to win in Iraq."

What I want to know is were was this aggressive confrontational George Bush years ago when Democrats in Congress and their propaganda machine (otherwise known as the mainstream media) were smearing him and his party and setting up the crisis which the nation is now facing.

If we had seen this Bush every day for the last five years his poll numbers wouldn't be at 40% and Republicans wouldn't be looking at losses this November.

Bill Clinton got one thing right. In the media age the campaign never ends. What he got wrong was thinking that the ONLY thing was the campaign.
