I Thought The Proof Is In The Pudding, Not The Rhetoric

Does anyone listen to the W's weekly radio address or is it another grand demonstration of how the right is wasting our taxpayer dollars on the propaganda catapult? Have a look at the rhetorical spew for today and let us know what you think:
There will be more tough fighting ahead in Iraq and more days of sacrifice and struggle. Yet the enemies of freedom have suffered a real blow in recent days, and we have taken great strides on the march to victory. Iraq's leaders now have laid the foundations for a democratic government of, by, and for the Iraqi people. By helping the Iraqi people build their democracy, America will deal the terrorists a crippling blow and establish a beacon of liberty in the Middle East -- and that will make our Nation and the world more secure.
All fluff and no stuff? As the old lady in the Wendy's commercial used to say, "Where's the beef?" Certainly, as I have been known to say in the past, the ROI in Iraq has never been worth the outlay.

I think its a waste of time & taxpayer dollars as well. Unfortunately, It's now a tradition that dates back to FDR's Fireside Chats. Every prrsident since has emulated FDR with this application of radio technology.

I suppose 70 years from now my great grand children will complain about the frivolty of a daily Presidential Blog posting ;)

This is why next to no one listens to it. It's not news, just propaganda.

Hope you had a great weekend.

I don't know a single person who listens to the weekly radio address, whether it's Bush or the Democratic responder of the week. Do you? I've got better ways to be bored.
