Bush Says U.S. Safety from Terror 'Up in the Air'

Reuters - Sun Oct 24, 7:09 PM ET

President Bush said it is "up in the air" whether the United States can ever be fully safe from terrorism, prompting an attack from Democrat John Kerry's campaign that Bush was sending a mixed message.


OK, let me get this straight.  Bush never found any WMD and he lost the ones he had.  And why should I feel safer with Bush?


"One is too polished; the other one, I think to be honest, I don't know how he ever got to be president."

Over in America, where votes are easily stolen,
Lived mad Katherine Harris and Jeb, her little Golem.
"No recount" she ranted "No recount" mewled the Golem.
And they deleted voters all day while the election was stolen.

Over in America, where Georgie Bush doth reign,
Lived millions of voters who cursed his very name.
"No to W" chanted the voters as they checked Kerry's name.
And they voted all day and ended Bushie's reign.
