A MOM'S FYI: George W. Bush....Buzzing for Your Vote!

10/26/04

"This is a new speech. And so I think you'll hear some new language in the speech....the President is going to continue to clearly articulate the differences on the big priorities, like the war on terrorism and the economy and health care. "

In this MOM'S FYI, you will find a tally of both domestic issue and foreign policy 'buzz words' President George W. Bush used in his campaign speech in Greeley, Colorado on Monday, October 25, 2004.
That Mr. Bush dubs himself the 'War President' is an understatement. As I analyzed and categorized words in this speech, I began to question Bush & Co.'s underlying motives:

Where do President Bush's real loyalties lie?
Is he aware of the dire straits of domestic affairs in the United States?
Does he even care about the United States government and its citizens?
Is Mr. Bush (& Co.) running for much more than President of the United States?
Is he running for Commander-in-Chief of the Middle East?
Of the World?


VOTER, BEWARE!!
