As usual, Bush draped himslef behind the Red White and Blue... Nice dress...Bush salutes a crown of an estimated 6,000 in front of historic Woodburn Hall at West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV July 4th, 2005. The "public" speech was restricted to a very special pre-screened "ticket only" audience.
Thanks to WV Democrat over at Daily Kos, I only wish I was there too... As it does not get anymore patriotic than this. As one person commented who watched the event live on TV,
"Boy this is the most normal looking bunch of Americans I've seen in a long time. The scary looking ones made it on TV with Bush..."
During the speech, Bush confirmed everyone’s worst fears when he stated that we will be in
So I take it we are never leaving, hence the building of permanent military basis.
It's also noteworthy that MSNBC "reporter" Amy Robach stated,
"There were a couple of protesters we heard with a few signs, but for the most part, looks like a very patriotic crowd there."Yeah right, because there were long lines of eligible Republicans and Bushies up at the Army and other Armed Forces recruiting offices up on Riddle Ave. after Bush's speech.
WV Democrat's full post. Thanks again!
