"The president cannot make laws and he is obliged to pass them."

Should read "...is obliged to follow them"

Your problem is that you don't know how to prosecute a war. The speech is part and parcel of the prosecution of the war.

We have many enemies, many who are domestic.

Before the invasion of Iraq is the issue. The Pres could have nuked a bunch of capitals in 9/11 without much trouble. By 9/13 that time was past.

Actually, Santorum has been doing an excellent job of explaining the Iraq and the WOT. The President would do well to let him take the lead on this in the Senate. It would help Santorum, as well.

With the War Powers Act, resolutions authorizing force are as close as a President can get to a declaration of war.

Then maybe the President and Congress should have used the full process to declare war properly. If they had, the Patriot Act would have been unnecessary and the laws against sedition would have come into play.

We aren't fighting a war; we haven't fought one since World War II.

"To say that everything stops until OBL is dead is just absurd."

That's one of the many dem talking points to the ill-informed crowd, since we haven't found or killed OBL, Bush has failed.

I saw Weezely Clark on Cavuto last night and he was repeatedly saying how 'this administration has failed' on the War on Terror and we are no safer, Cavuto called him on every stupid point he tried to make, but Weezely just stuck to his prepared lines as usual. The dems are back in their usual mode, keep saying their lies over and over to program the stupid crowd. It's pathetic, and pathetic that the stupid ones buy it, hook, line and sinker.

Rush was a little perturbed but said that President Bush had to make this move due to the liberals in congress, the courts and left wing lawyers.

He said that GW refused to close down Club Gitmo and sent a message to the libs that wasn't going to happen.

"Bush didn't "pass the buck", but he did pass the ball back into the legislature's court, where the Supremes told him the ball should be. This was just perfect timing for the elections, because it will force the Democrats to make the choice, do they want to protect the citizens of the US, or do they want to protect our enemies?"

Exactly, he just tossed a 600 pound medicine ball into the rat's game room.

Hmm, not exactly the red meat the base was looking for.

OK.......let's analyze this based on the fact that the speech had not yet been given, and that Minus_the_Bear's idiotic 'read my lips' post was pure negative speculation, shall we?

Had you already concluded that the speculation was accurate?

Had you already concluded that you as 'the base' would be dissatisfied with the speech?

Had you already concluded that there would be no 'red meat' in the President's words?

Had you already concluded that this would be a 'read my lips' betrayal by the President, thus agreeing with Minus' silly post?

You can be honest even though it might be embarrassing now that you know what the President actually said.

Why don't you tell me what you meant by this non-condemnation.....

We are at war, though. It just isn't our war. It is their war, the enemy has brought this. We could still make it our war by declaring war even now. But, we can't call off the war since it isn't our war. That's where the MSM and the other political types are wrong. We can't stop the war.

Savage is an expert at spoken presentation. He has valuable professional insight on speech delivery and content. Those who do not speak for a living would not have the same level of insight. Phil Hendrie is also expert in this.

The only problem is, who do you declare war to? Declarations of war by definition are between Nation states, not amorphous groups. That, and formally declaring war tends to show a level of commitment that no government since WWII has been able to get.

He has consistently used this strategy in every election.

As was mentioned up thread you will notice that his April/May/June numbers are always in decline. The Democrats begin to yell loudly all summer about what an incompetent he is. The msm begins to write his political obituary. Even conservatives start to whine and complain. He hangs out in Crawford and irritates the journalists and Cindy Sheehan. Frankly it shocks me that this thing still works! It's not like it's a secret.

After Labor Day, when everyone is home from vacation he comes out swinging, leaves everyone cheering and the dems looking weak and ineffective.

It's actually not about being brilliant as much as looking for behavioral patterns. People become really predictable after you observe them for a while. We're all kind of creatures of habit.

Anyway, I hope you were being serious about the explanation. If not, I just made myself look like a dope. LOL.

Larry David is a bozo leftist "producer" of TV shows, whose wife Laurie David has been one of the nuttiest and most reprehensible hags raving about global warming (she's they typ to issue a PR with a blistering denunciation of SUV owners just before she hops on a private jet to fly to her next spa visit). To have Larry David and Arianna issues endorsements of a books is worth less than a cup of warm spit.

I heard the President detailing these different terrorists and their plans and how they thwarted several plots and my thought was "how does he stay so optomistic in light of such ongoing horrific daily reports"? But then I know he takes his strength from the Lord and relies upon the saving power of Jesus Christ to sustain him. HOw blessed we truly are that God set aside this man for such a time to lead our country.
