This weekend George W. Bush will give his radio address; thanks to Atrios, we have the script ahead of time. Do you think he even mentions the deaths this week of Marines? Not a f*ing chance, he's touting "economic progress."
Excerpt via Atrios:
Good morning. As families across the country enjoy the summer, Americans can be optimistic about our economic future. In the past four years, our economy has been through a lot: we faced a stock market decline, a recession, corporate scandals, an attack on our homeland, and the demands of an ongoing war on terror.There are no words to express my outrage. There better be a re-write. I would hold my breath, but I don't want to be another casualty of George Bush's incompetence.
To grow the economy and help American families, we acted by passing the largest tax relief in a generation. And today, thanks to the tax relief and the efforts of America's workers and entrepreneurs, our economy is strong and growing stronger.
