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!
(I posted my opion in another thread, but some troll took over the other thread will some mean stupid stuff.)

Me too! It even brought some tearing that I am not ashamed to admit. If you looked at the president closely he was on the verge of getting choked up himself before shifting his thought. But, he never lost his composure.

It was one of Bush's finest hours. He was honest to the core and his values are right.
Reporters tried to badger him, put him in a corner, etc. He kept his cool the whole way, thank God. What if he had given way, as many of us probably would have, and told a reporter what he/she could do with their idiot question? No, he was above all that and he did not respond angrily to provocitive questions the way Clinton or Kerry would have done.
Dubya is a class act and an honest man. And a devout Christian. Heaven knows, Mr. Bush.
