Hmph

I was going to comment on that speech, but all I can think is, "we waited four months for him to tell us what was going all and all that's going on is that he wants $87,000,000,000?"

Where on earth does he think the government is going to get that kind of money? They gave it all back, does he remember that?

Does he remember inheriting a budget surplus and squandering it?

Did he remember, as he made those pious remarks about our brave and noble soldiers, how his Administration worked to cut benefits for the lucky ones that return instead of joining the hundreds that have died to support his invasion?

Did you hear him blithely abeitly ambiguously repeating those remarks about Hussein's WMD?

Did you hear the thinly veiled threats aimed at the U.N.?

Did you hear him say he's got the terrorists running scared? I suppose it's true, but it sure doesn't look like it to me or, I suspect, to the people in Afghanistan. (Okay, it's quite possible they're getting desperate, but I still think if we'd done a decent job in Afghanistan, and finished that job before moving on, things would be in better shape now.)

Sanctimonious hypocrite. That was my first reaction and I'm sticking with it.

Ed. to add:

Lookit this.

Did you hear an exit strategy? I heard he's got 60,000 Iraqis trained and acting as security in the country, something I haven't heard confirmed by any of the news sources I've been following on the past few weeks.

Is he, in fact, getting ready to bail out on Iraq and Afghanistan both? Is that what the outrageous eighty-seven billion dollar request was for, so that he can blame Congress?
