NEWS AND COMMENT
"President Bush was asked twice last week about Sen. Barack Obama. In response, Bush never used the Democratic presidential candidate's name.
As it turns out, Bush has uttered Obama's name only a handful of times since the senator from Illinois began running for the White House last year, according to a review of his public statements and appearances...."
Well. after 71/2 years, Mr. Bush still has trouble uttering the w0rds "global warming".
Senator McCain: "I know how to win wars. And if I'm elected President, I will turn around the war in Afghanistan, just as we have turned around the war in Iraq, with a comprehensive strategy for victory."
