President Bush Lauds McCain, Attacks Obama Via Satellite

with one comment

ST. PAUL, Minn.–President George W. Bush spoke for less than 10 minutes via satellite Tuesday night in prime time, re-telling John McCain’s life story.

Introduced and followed in-person by Laura Bush, he extolled McCain for his perseverance as a prisoner of war, moving the message straight from Hanoi to the White House: “If the Hanoi Hilton cannot break John McCain’s resolve to do what is best for his country, you can be assured that the angry left never will.”

Laura got in on the attacks, too: referring to her husband’s efforts to combat malaria and AIDS in Africa, she mocked the Barack Obama campaign slogan by saying, “You might call that change you can really believe in.”
