As everyone knows, Bush gave a speech today, to partly address the issue of the NSA wire tapping. Well, I watched the whole thing and my assessment is that he hit a homerun!! I think it was the best speech I have ever seen him give. He was comfortable, relaxed, funny, light on his feet. A lot of the speech centered around why we were in this war. The reasons we went to Afghanistan, and Iraq. He reiterated the line that if you harbor terrorists you are just as respondsible (sp) as the terrorist themselves! One great moment was when he spoke to the girls directly and reminded them of the freedom that we have and the freedom that the women of Afghanistan and Iraq now have!! He talked about how under Saddam if you spoke out against the government, you usually didn't make to the next week. It almost gave me goose bumps when he started talking about how Iraq is a budding democracy going through their own growing pains. Just like we have in our 200 plus history. Now I do think ours is the best model and that personally everyone's should be just like ours. But different cultures for different people I guess!! Oops, sorry when I start talking about our great Country I kinda get excited and start rambling! I just finished reading the Constitution (sp) and the bill of rights, also our Declaration of Independence. And while I was reading the Declaration, I started to realize that you could just about apply all the grievances we had against Britain, to the Iraqis against Saddam!! Amazing. Anyways there you have it! Don't we live in the greatest Country in the world!! VIVA LA USA!! USA!
