What does Bush have to tell the Country tonight ? I'll tell you what he's not going to say!

MSNBC: Bush seeks to ease worries about war

Everywhere across the MSM and the blogshere this morning people are talking about "What President Bush needs to tell the Nation tonight".

So, I'll weigh in on this as well. How much does he have to tell us? Not much. Why? Because I think the American people for the most part know what we are in Iraq for, why we went, how long this effort might take, etc, and despite what the MSM is trying to tell us, they are supporting the President and the war.

The American people are not doofs as the media seems to protray them so often.

Over at Polipundit, Lorie Byrd list seven points that the President should cover.

They are good, and maybe he'll cover them. But I'm not going to tell you what I think he should say. In my opinion Mr. Bush doesn't need an apologist.

But I will tell you what he's not going to say, and that is what is going to make the news tomorrow.

Here are five things he's not going to say:

1. He isn't going to announce a pullout date.
2. He isn't going to say he was wrong about going into Iraq.
3. He isn't going to say, "I'm sorry!, Me and Dick and Rummy are all pinheads and didn't know what we were getting into (prolonged struggle with 'insurgents' etc.)
4. He isn't going to talk about the "Downing Street Memo".
5. He isn't going to repudiate Karl Rove's statements; or fire him.

Now you watch the MSM tomorrow. After all, is it a mistake that the WAPO releases a opinion poll today? Does this lead by the AP story of the poll and Bush's speech tell you what "they expect"?

"President Bush is using the first anniversary of Iraq'’s sovereignty to try to ease American's’ doubts about the mission and outline a winning strategy for a violent conflict that has cost the lives of more than 1,740 U.S. troops and has no end in sight."

He's going to disappoint their expectations - as he usually does. President's Bush's most glowing characteristic is that he doesn't seemed phased by polls or media "concerns". He says what he means and means what he says. That idea is foreign to the left - it's called Leadership.

Buried down in the same AP article is this paragraph:

"Despite public misgivings about elements of the policy, there remains an underlying reservoir of support for the war and continued unwillingness by the public to abandon Iraqis to their fate. Despite the almost daily suicide bombings and mounting casualty rates, a majority of Americans -- 53 percent -- now say they are optimistic about the situation in Iraq, up seven points from December."

I"m not a "poll fan", I think they're bogus for the most part and tell us nothing except what opinion the pollster would like to get across, or more precisely to feed the OPEDs of tomorrow.

Yet, lets take that last paragraph quoted above at face value. It simply proves my point that the American people are not stupid and despite what the left and MSM would like us to believe this is NOT Vietnam. The same "game plan" they used then (polls, bad press, student - unrest) to have us retreat from Vietnam isn't going to work in Iraq.

This President isn't going to bow to "polls" and the "elite media's" expectation of what he should do. He stood on a twisted heap of rock and metal on September 14th, 2001 and said, "The people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!"

He inspired us then, and the MSM cringed.

He'll inspired us tonight, and tomorrow you'll see the media seeth.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
