War and Piece

YT nearly fell off her chair upon reading Bush's "We are safer cuz I say so" speech in Iowa. What was it that finally sent me to the floor? Now Bush sez "I want to be the peace President".

For the love of all that is Holy, will November hurry up and get here?!
"The enemy declared war on us," he told a re-election rally. "Nobody wants to be the war president. I want to be the peace president."

Bush has called himself a "war president" in leading the United States in a battle against terrorism brought about by the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on America.

"I'm a war president. I make decisions here in the Oval Office in foreign policy matters with war on my mind," he said in February.

Despite a surge in attacks in Iraq and U.S. warnings that al Qaeda is plotting another major strike, Bush said U.S.-led wars in Afghanistan and Iraq had already made America safer, and that his re-election would let him finish the job.

"For a while we were marching to war. Now we're marching to peace. ... America is a safer place. Four more years and America will be safe and the world will be more peaceful," Bush said.

Yessirreeeee. Bush is the piece President, all right. There are leg pieces and arm pieces and head pieces and unidentifiable pieces of soldiers and Iraqi civilians littering the blood-soaked Mesopotamia sands. You know, that winning of hearts and minds thingy.
