Rather than admitting the shortcomings of his failed policy and plotting a course to get us out of Iraq, George Bush used the speech to the nation to repeat his lies in the hopes that people will believe them if said often enough.
There was no mention of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Bush continued to equate Iraq with al-Qaeda terrorists even though there's no factual basis for the charge, and then he asked us for another $87 BILLION to bail him out.
How much is $87 billion? For that amount of money, America could:
Solve the school budget crisis in every one of our communities,
Provide health insurance for every uninsured American child for 15 years,
Provide food for all 6 million of the children who die from hunger around the world for 7 years.
A day of protest is being planned for October 25 in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles and places in between. For information about these events, go to:
