  1. To be fair, our friends on the other side of the aisle (if they’re worth their salt) should be able to do something with:

    “WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION … program … uh … related .. activities.”

  2. One of the best lines (I thought) was how we act unilaterally does not really make sense to the people of Britian, Australia, Spain, etc.

  3. Judging by the applause meter, there was something for everyone in President Bush’s SOTU speech.

    “Key provisions of the Patriot Act are set to expire next year. (Applause.) The terrorist threat will not expire on that schedule. (Applause.) Our law enforcement needs this vital legislation to protect our citizens. You need to renew the Patriot Act. (Applause.)”

    Who was applauding the statement that the terrorist threat will not expire next year? I want names!

  4. I think the ‘permission slip’ line is the killer phrase from the entire address. It boils down the entire refutation of the objection to the U.S. engaging in Unilateral action in Iraq to two words. It is bumper sticker wisdom, and that is what wins political arguments.

    When the Bush campaign combines that line with ‘mass graves’ and ‘torture chambers’, the Democrat opponents have to wince.
