I just saw that article on the Yahoo! homepage, and I thought it was very interesting.

The scare tactics are starting already. Yeah it's been so prosperous and peaceful the last 8 years.

(AP)WASHINGTON — President Bush, rallying conservatives for a battle against Democratic presidential hopefuls Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama, says "prosperity and peace" are at stake in the upcoming election for his successor.

"We have had good debates and soon we will have a nominee who will carry the conservative banner into this election and beyond," Bush said in prepared remarks of a speech he was to give Friday to the Conservative Political Action Conference.

"Prosperity and peace are in the balance," the president said in speech excerpts the White House released on Thursday night. "So with confidence in our vision and faith in our values, let us go forward ... fight for victory ... and keep the White House in 2008."

Bush is not expected to mention by name John McCain, who almost surely will be the GOP's presidential nominee. Conservatives are resigned to seeing McCain lead the Republican ticket, but the Arizona senator has a long history of disputes over economic and social issues with the party's right flank.

It remains unclear whether conservative voters will stay at home in November, or try to influence McCain's positions _ and his choice of a running mate. In his own defense, McCain says he is a true conservative and has lined up endorsements of many conservative political leaders.

After Republican Mitt Romney announced on Thursday that he was suspending his campaign, Bush had to pencil in minor changes to his speech, making it more forward-looking to the November election. Still, the White House says it's not time yet for Bush to formally weigh in on the election.

Is he fucking HIGH?

The economy is taking a shit due to deregulation of the banking industry and Republican-encouraged corporate greed. 3000 Americans are dead in a war for oil, and this idiot claims that his party is the party for prosperity and peace?!?!

People who think he's a good president are stupid.

And I thought John Howard was a moron when he said similar things about his government and Australia! I echo martha: is he fucking high?!

Hopefully American voters, like Australian voters last year, won't fall for this kind of utter nonsense and claptrap.

By "peace" I assume he means no terrorist attacks on US soil, that's an extremely narrow definition. But it will suffice for his purpose in making such an statement, right?

I have no explanation for the "prosperity" part other than it means a Democrat as President=high taxes. As we all know the tax breaks given to the wealthy are making us all so prosperous right now

Ah, yes, the fear campaign starts again.

That makes how many times they label republicans they don't like as Democrats? They did it with Mark Foley and Arlen Spector, I doubt those are the only ones.

You know, I would actually tend to agree with you there. It is a generality. Then I look back at the past 8 years. I have no personal dislike for Bush as a person, believe it or not. However, anyone who could look back at the policies and plans carried out by the Bush administration and come to a conclusion that he's done a good job would have to be a bit off, at the least. Unless deceptively being pushed into a bloody, unnecessary war, having a welfare and aid response system in shambles (as revealed by the Bush administration's disastrous response to Katrina), having an economy in the toilet, an education plan that has widened the gap between wealthy schools and those truly left behind in the inner cities, and unconstitutional acts that take away civil rights, are good things in one's eyes, then, yes, it doesn't make Martha's argument sound stupid at all. Imagine that, our fearless leader has actually managed to screw things up so badly, that we shouldn't even need a debate about whether or not good has come from his administration. Well done W.

What do you know? Pennsylvania might matter for once in the primaries. Just in case I changed my registration from no party affiliation.

Good to know FOX News has excellent fact-checkers! Those minor details like the political affiliation of a viable presidential candidate are easy to screw up!
