Bush Keeps Playing the 9/11 Trump Card - And, America is Slowly Realizing He Is a Crappy Bluffer

You can almost hear Karl Rove in Bush's brain saying, "Stay On Message".

We don't know what's worse... that Bush is using the 9/11 trump card, or the American publics rather slow realization of said trump card.

"The war reached our shores on September the 11th, 2001," Bush told a national television audience and 750 soldiers and airmen in dress uniform who mostly listened quietly as they had been asked to do.

"Iraq is the latest battlefield in this war," he continued.

Bush said he understands the public concerns about a 27-month-old war that has killed more than 1,700 Americans and 12,000 Iraqi civilians and cost $200 billion. But he argued that the sacrifice "is worth it."

"We fight today because terrorists want to attack our country and kill our citizens, and Iraq is where they are making their stand. So we will fight them there, we will fight them across the world and we will stay in the fight until the fight is won."
