Bush Urging We Must Act Fast (Again)

This is a great post courtesy of The Rude Pundit:

You know, the Rude Pundit realizes there’s only so many ways to describe a dire situation, but, really, and, c’mon, is it all not a variation on the same tune?

From the statement by President Bush on September 22, 2008 on the current economic crisis and the possible bailout: “Failure to act would have broad consequences far beyond Wall Street.”

From Bush’s speech explaining why he needed war authorization for Iraq, October 7, 2002: “Failure to act would embolden other tyrants, allow terrorists access to new weapons and new resources, and make blackmail a permanent feature of world events.”

2008: “It would threaten small business owners and homeowners on Main Street.”
2002: “He would be in a position to threaten America.”

2008: “Americans are watching to see if Democrats and Republicans, the Congress and the White House, can come together to solve this problem with the urgency it warrants.
2002: “We have an urgent duty to prevent the worst from occurring.”

It’s all lessons from childhood: If you cry wolf often enough, you may just ignore it when that toothsome fucker is carrying away your infants and livestock. You say the sky is falling and it’s not, then next time there better be clouds around your ass.
