Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

Bush Sends Mixed Messages::Therefore, He Cannot Lead (But We Knew That Already)

< >
(In the) debate, President Bush said that we could not hope to defeat terrorists if we have a leader who sends mixed signals. Bush said, "you cannot lead if you send mixed messages. Mixed messages send the wrong signals to our troops. Mixed messages send the wrong signals to our allies."[1] But, throughout his presidency, Bush has sent mixed messages on fundamental terrorism-related issues.
For example, in September 2001 Bush said that he was determined to capture Osama bin Laden "dead or alive."[2] Six months later Bush said, "I don't know where he is. You know, I just don't spend that much time on him... I truly am not that concerned about him."[3]
In April of this year, Bush said that we could win the war on terrorism.[4] Then, on August 30, he said "I don't think you can win [the war on terror]."[5] The next day, he said "Make no mistake about it, we are winning and we will win [the war on terror]."[6]
