The president's radio address

Okay. Here's an excerpt from his address this morning:

The recent violence in Iraq is a grim reminder of the brutal nature of the enemy we face in the war on terror. Our mission in Iraq is tough because the enemy understands the stakes. The terrorists know that a free Iraq in the heart of the Middle East will be a crippling blow to their hateful ideology. And that is why our work in Iraq is a vital part of the war on terror we're waging around the world.

This war on terror arrived on our shores on September the 11th, 2001.

HOW does he get away with this OVER and OVER??? Implying that Iraq attacked us? People BELIEVE this. It's the Nazi technique of repeating the big lie enough times that it's simply accepted as fact. Why doesn't the press call him on this? Damn it, this is a STORY. Some journalist ought to count up the number of times he's done this and blow it out of the water. To my knowledge, the only person who's called him on it was John Kerry in the debates.

Actually Bush "admitted" (heh heh) back in May what he's doing:

See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.

That's right, Mr. President. Just keep on catapulting the propaganda. In the meantime, you've got one incredibly clear minded and brave woman camped out on your door step who's slicing right through the propaganda with one laser focused question: What's the noble cause? What's the noble cause her son died for? She's waiting for the answer. So are the rest of us.

UPDATE: Here's the other question: Why aren't Jenna and Barbara fighting in the war if the cause is so "noble". Why isn't the president encouraging his daughters to enlist? And for that matter, why is the military behind on enlistments? After all, supposedly 51% of the vote went to Bush in November so why aren't all those Bush voters insisting that their military age children sign up? Why aren't Bush voters signing up themselves? With all those yellow ribbon magnets out there on the backs of SUVs, you'd think we'd have plenty of people clamoring to get in the military.
