Bush Begins 5-Day Push to Defend Iraq War - Yahoo! News
With anti-war protesters continuing their vigil outside President Bush's ranch, the commander in chief began a five-day push Saturday to tell Americans why he thinks U.S. troops must continue the fight in Iraq.

In his weekly radio address, Bush argued that the war in Iraq will keep Americans safe for generations to come. He'll try to drive the point home with speeches in upcoming days in Utah and Idaho.

"Our troops know that they're fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere to protect their fellow Americans from a savage enemy," the president said in the recorded broadcast.

"They know that if we do not confront these evil men abroad, we will have to face them one day in our own cities and streets, and they know that the safety and security of every American is at stake in this war, and they know we will prevail."

It has been obvious for a long time that these folks never alter their thinking based on most kinds of facts, but in the past, they have been fairly savvy in reacting to polls. But the flypaper theory went belly up in London, the "finite terrorist supply" should have died at the same time, yet they still don't seem to have found replacements. The same tired, discredited arguments don't add up to a very enthusiastic or effective campaign. And look at the cocoons our Bubble Boy is visiting -- Utah and Idaho being among the handlful of states that have not begun to awake from their slumber (witness the refusal of a SLC station to air an anti-war ad featuring Sheehan). As long as the devastating power of the Cindytron threatens him, he is likely to avoid blue states as if a TANG flight physical was required to enter them.
