BUSH SPEECHES NOT POLITICAL?
Bush, first visiting Little Rock, Arkansas, to raise money for Republican gubernatorial candidate Asa Hutchinson, rejected any tie between politics and the blitz of speeches on Iraq.
"My series of speeches, they are not political speeches, they are speeches about the future of this country and they are speeches to make it clear that if we retreat before the job is done, this nation will become in even more jeopardy," he said.
"These are important times and I would seriously hope people wouldn't politicize these issues that I am going to talk about," Bush added.
HE SHOULD TELL THAT TO DICK CHENEY!
OMAHA - Vice President Dick Cheney said Tuesday that some Democrats' calls for troop withdrawal in Iraq only serve to embolden terrorists.
“Decisions about troop levels will be driven by conditions on the ground, not by polls or artificial timelines set by politicians in Washington, D.C.,” Cheney said in Omaha during a speech at a Republican fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Jeff Fortenberry of Nebraska.
Cheney said electing Republicans such as Fortenberry and U.S. Senate candidate Pete Ricketts is important to the war on terror.
Fortenberry has become a strong ally to the Bush administration in his two years in the House, Cheney said.
“Jeff Fortenberry recognizes that the first order of business in Washington is to protect the American people and to support the men and women who defend us in time of war,” the vice president said.
Cheney also appeared at Offutt Air Force Base south of Omaha later in the day and thanked the men and women in uniform for their support of U.S. operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. He also promised that the United States would not relent in the war on terror.
“I want you to know as members of the United States military that the American people do not support a policy of retreat or defeat,” Cheney said. “We want to complete the mission. We want it done right, and we want to return with honor.”
