Normal OK, So Now He's The "Peace President"

Interesting change of heart (?) from Feb to July..

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...mpaign_bush_dc

"The enemy declared war on us," Bush told a re-election rally in Cedar Rapids. "Nobody wants to be the war president. I want to be the peace president... The next four years will be peaceful years." Bush used the words "peace" or "peaceful" a total of 20 times.

Bush has called himself a "war president" in leading the United States in a battle against terrorism brought about by the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on America. "I'm a war president. I make decisions here in the Oval Office in foreign policy matters with war on my mind," he said in February. "

Sure, Mr. Bush is the peace president together with mr. sharon.

how about calling mr. Joseph Deiss war president instead of mr. bush?
(for those who don't know, Joseph Deiss is the president of Switzerland)

How will Mr. Bush know if the next 4 years will be peacefull? does he know that no countries harbour terrorists, develop WMDs or simply have to be liberated?
Seems to me like he either knows exactly what hapenes the next 4 years, he found out that his response was wrong or he simply tells the audience what he thinks they want to hear to reelect him.

Well the first election he was a "compasionate conservative" and he really didn't own up to that one so well either. I don't think Bush has a true sence of who he really is.

All Bush has proven is that "compassion" and "conservatism" together is an oxymoron. I've also never seen a more divisive president ever (remember his whole "uniter, not a divider" rhetoric to get elected?), and all he has done in the past four years is foster legislation to divide people. We're more polarized than ever as a nation, and the rest of the world is united in its distrust of us.

I can't believe he said that with a straight face.

Peace and peaceful were dirty words 6 months ago. That's when peace loving "liberals" were deemed to be French sympathizers, terrorist sympathizers, cheese eating surrender monkeys and God knows what else.

All Bush, all disingenuous, all the time.

Maybe he's the schizophrenic president:

schiz∑o∑phren∑ic adj.
3: suffering from a form of schizophrenia characterized by foolish mannerisms and senseless laughter along with delusions and regressive behavior

Unbelievable. Does he think we haven't noticed what he's said and done for the last four years? It's an insult to every thinking person's intelligence.

No big surprises. I truly believe they will do anything up to and including declaring martial law, to hold on to power. Should be an interesting few months.
