Shouldn't You Have to Have Served

In order to spout the crap about supporting our troops and how much people have sacrificed?
Bush Attacks Iraq War Critics: "Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) accused Bush of exploiting Veterans Day in 'a campaign-like attempt to rebuild his own credibility by tearing down those who seek the truth about the clear manipulation of intelligence in the run-up to the Iraq war.' In a statement, Kennedy added, 'Instead of providing open and honest answers about how we will achieve success in Iraq and allow our troops to begin to come home, the president reverted to the same manipulation of facts to justify a war we never should have fought.'

Kennedy charged that Bush's speech 'only further tarnished this White House and further damaged his presidency.'

Bush's remarks came amid steadily falling job-approval ratings and growing public doubts about the president's honesty, according to recent polls. In an AP-Ipsos poll released today, only 37 percent of respondents approved of Bush's handling of his job as president, and the same percentage approved of his handling of Iraq. A minority of those polled described him as 'honest' and 'ethical' (42 percent and 47 percent, respectively), and 82 percent described him as 'stubborn.'

Much of Bush's address today was essentially the same speech he gave three times in October on the war on terrorism. But he departed from his previous remarks when he launched into a pointed rebuttal of recent criticism from Democratic leaders who charge that his administration twisted prewar intelligence to justify invading Iraq in March 2003."
Doesn't the WH have speechwriters? They don't believe in conservation or global warming, but they keep recycling the same old tired speeches.
