Still Trying to Connect Iraq to 9/11
Bush's radio address

Bush made it clear that failure "to stay the course" in Iran would have dire consequences:

"The only way the terrorists can win is if we lose our nerve and abandon the mission. For the security of the American people, that's not going to happen on my watch. We'll do our duty. We'll defeat our enemies in Iraq and other fronts in the war on terror. We'll lay the foundation of peace for our children and grandchildren."

All I've got to say is that it is a good thing we are laying a "foundation of peace" for our grandchildren. They sure as heck are not going to be able to afford to fight any wars if Republican fiscal irresponsibility is not checked. Intrest payments on the federal debt could soak up all tax revenues. Even some conservatives are getting disgusted with the spending free-for-all of the last five years. Witness this quote from Peggy Noonan:

"George W. Bush is a big spender. He has never vetoed a spending bill. When Congress serves up a big slab of fat, crackling pork, Mr. Bush responds with one big question: Got any barbecue sauce ?"
