Terrorists, blah blah tyrants, blah blah blah

Bush's radio address: about what you'd expect
President Bush called this week's inaugural ceremony a simple and humbling experience today.

Yeah, simple if you're used to spending $40,000,000 on a three day party. Personally, I could have thought of better uses for the money.
The president also pledged continued support of the Iraqis, as well as the people of Afghanistan, as they move to build democratic societies. "When America gives its word, America must keep its word."

Unfortunately, it's leaders don't feel obligated to follow the same principles.
"We will strive to keep the world's most dangerous weapons out of the hands of terrorists and tyrants," he said in the radio speech. "We will continue to promote freedom, hope and democracy in the broader Middle East."

Uh, oh. I forsee a lot of bunkers being dug. Note to self: invest in heavy construction equipment maufacturers.
"In the years since I first swore to preserve, protect and defend our Constitution, our nation has been tested," he said. "Our enemies have found America more than equal to the task. In response to attacks on our home soil, we have captured or killed terrorists across the earth."

Yeah, except the one's who attacked us.

Ah, Democracy! Ain't it grand? King George thinks he has a mandate, that because 50.8% of voters thought he was the lesser of available evils, he has free reign. We shall see. His approval rating is already declining, and he's just been sworn in. Time will tell.
