Bush Grasps For Relevancy By Bashing 'Moveon.org bloggers' and "Code Pink Protesters'
In a politically-charged speech this afternoon at the Heritage Foundation, President Bush brazenly attacked congressional leaders for not immediately granting him all the funding he has requested for the Iraq war.
Lawmakers should stop listening to “Moveon.org bloggers and Code Pink protesters” and start listening to the “warnings of terrorists like Osama bin Laden,” Bush said to a rousing ovation:When it comes to funding our troops, some in Washington should spend more time responding to the warnings of terrorists like Osama bin Laden and the requests of our commanders on the ground, and less time responding to the demands of MoveOn.org bloggers and Code Pink protesters.
It's about time more people take on these so-called think tanks and their mouthpieces online. It's perfect for this to coming from precisely the kinds of bloggers he's talking about. Karen Tumulty, are you listening?
Update: Here's the transcript of the speech from the Whitehouse.
