Talk:Bush administration financial misconduct and lack of accountability
Re America has a choice: It can continue to grow the economy and create new jobs as the president's policies are doing, or it can raise taxes on American families and small businesses, hurting economic recovery and future job creation.
- "NBC News White House reporter David Gregory, on MSNBC's Imus In the Morning, characterized Bush's strategy as a "hard-right campaign." The MRC's Jessica Anderson transcribed his February 24 analysis:
- "I was struck by another point, which is the President argued very strongly that essentially America has a choice. You either stick with him if you want to stay safe and if you want America to project strength around the world, or you pick a Democrat and you face the danger of a terrorist threat with an uncertain, you know, Democratic administration, who would only be uncertain in the face of danger and sort of let the country slip toward another tragedy. And that's a pretty in-your-face attack that he's making on the Democrats, and that's what he wants voters to be thinking in November, that it's either strength or weakness. And it is a very hard-right campaign that he's preparing to run, which is to say the only way to get ahead in this world, the only way to prevent another 9/11 is to show 'em who's boss, and that's America, and to show 'em that we'll invade their country and we'll hit 'em hard and that's the only thing the terrorists will respond to, is a really muscular United States, and that's what I'm going to do."
