I especially liked the way the president tied the criticism of taking preemptive action in Iraq to the criticism of pre 9/11 failure to invade Afghanistan.
Home run GW

Some good points.

Agreed ! Bush was TOUGH and stayed on message.
His questioners were reading from an old rumpled Clintonite script and were begging for re-runs of the old "Mr. Bill Show." (Secret White House Blow Jobs, combined with public lip biting and apologies).
Great Job by President Bush!

Bush spoke his core beliefs, not as eloquently as Reagan because Dubya doesn't have a Hollywood background. He told the truth about his intentions, which is something no Democratic opponent would ever dare to do.
I did like the part when he said that democracy could be brought to the middle east. You could almost hear over 7000 fat Saudi princes loosing bowel control.:)
He'll win re-election, because he's honest, he's right, and Kerry is Clinton without the personality. And God knows, Mr. Bush.

Watched the whole Press Conference With the President talking about Iraq. We are so blessed to have a President like George W. Bush, who is sincere and courageous in his beliefs.
Proud to have him as my President. Proud to know he is in charge.
You are right. It was very difficult to keep from jumping up and cheering.
W's plan tonight was to reassure the country, which he did, connect all the dots, which he also did, and then allowed the liberal media to expose themselves to the American people in prime time, which it did.

Listening to President Bush tonight makes me proud to be a Republican, proud to be a Conservative and especially proud to be an American. Listening to John Kerry makes me proud that I'm not a democrat, proud that I'm not a liberal, and especially proud that I'm not French.
Staying on message is commendable, but sometimes I wish he would slap down the reporters for asking repetitive questions or stupid questions.

IMHO this was one of Bush's finest hours. He showed compassion, strength, and unbelievable clarity in his mission to stay the course in the fight against terror.
Part of Bush's mission tonight was to send a message to Iraq, to our soldiers who fight, and to the families of those who have fallen that their sacrifice is not in vain. No one in their right mind should question his resolve again.
I got chills when Bush said freedom is not our gift to the world, it is the gift from the Almighty to the world. But it is our responsibility to help. (I don't remember his exact wording right now)
I am so very proud to call George W Bush my president and my American hero!

(Let's turn Iraqi sand into some useful glass!)
Condi Rice, Louis Freeh, and John Ashcroft are the Quarterback's blockers. They paved the way for him the last few days so that he could throw a touchdown.
The surge of media criticism of Bush's pre-9/11 moves has been halted.
It has been found that Clinton was to blame for blocking intelligence sharing which largely caused 9/11.
Brilliant strategy the last few days...our team scored!
Listening to a democrat hack --with Brit Hume, before the press conference-- pose questions straight from latest dnc talking points memos, the entire field of conference queries sounded like the press whores were reading right from that same list!

(If you can read this, you've had life support from someone. Promote life support for others.)
We must know that in the days to follow, many of those same press members that were present will label the president as a simpleton that cannot articulate his beliefs without saying the same things over and over again.
Well, if they didn't ask the same question over and over again, e.g. appologize, vietnam, failure to communicate, yada yada yada.

(Pray continually for our leaders and our troops.)
Up here in the high country we call the enemy the press corps.
The best part of the news conference was when a reporter asked Bush about an apology for 9/11 from the President. President Bush replied something to the effect "I did not crash the plane into the building, Bin Laden was responsible".
No apology necessary on the part of THIS President!!!! CheckMate! It seemed like every reporter in the room was bent on creating the cover story that would be responsible for the destruction of President Bush. They all appeared to leave the room unsatisfied because they know their slant cannot sway intelligence.
