Meet the Press, failing that, Face the Nation

President Bush at the 2005 President's Dinner: On Democrats: ...they stand for nothing except obstruction, and this is not leadership. On his WASP-y, Christian base: I'm proud to be the head of a party that has a positive and hopeful and optimistic vision for every single person who lives in this country. On Mustache McGee: And speaking of confirmations, the Senate must promptly confirm John Bolton, my nominee to be our ambassador to the United Nations, so we can get on with the business of reforming that institution. On finding bin Laden: And we're making progress. Since September the 11th, 2001, we've closed down terrorist networks. We brought to justice many of the key leaders of al Qaeda. We're disrupting their finances. There is no place they can hide from the United States of America and our allies and friends. Lamest line, re: Democratic obstructionism: It is the philosophy of the stop sign, the agenda of the roadblock, and our country and our children deserve better. It's weird how every single one of his speeches sounds like an even more generic version of his campaign stump-shpiel from the last election. He needs a new writer, a set of GENUINE Texas testicles, and the ability to speak off-the-cuff, minus notecards/teleprompters/earpieces. This event brought in 23 million dollars for the GOP. You'd think he'd be a bit more candid with his sycophantic followers. I'll leave you with this, from a mother who recently lost her son in the Global War on Terror:

"We're watching you very carefully and we're going to do everything in our power to have you impeached for misleading the American people," she said, quoting a letter she sent to the White House. "Beating a political stake in your black heart will be the fulfillment of my life ... ," she said, as the audience of 200 people cheered.

I like to think of her as a freedom-fighting, progressive version of Buffy.
