what I said was:
"A man of perpetual promise." Gee, sounds familiar.I'm amused when pundits criticize politicians that they don't agree with, for being 'political.' what president in history has not made more promises than they could keep?

"George W. Bush will establish the 'Healthy Communities Innovation Fund' to provide $500 million in grants over five years to fund innovative projects addressing targeted health risks, such as childhood diabetes."
"As President, Governor Bush will…pay the debt down to a historically low level."
"The Social Security surplus must be locked away only for Social Security."
"Governor Bush's income tax cuts will benefit all Americans, but they are especially focused on low and moderate income families."
"[B]y far the vast majority of my tax cuts go to the bottom end of the spectrum."
"To restore confidence in government, [George W. Bush] will...attack pork-barrel spending."
"To restore confidence in government, George W. Bush will...return civility to the nomination process."
George W. Bush will "fully fund the Pell grant program for first-year students by increasing the maximum grant amount by more than 50 percent"
George W. Bush "will also ensure that the federal government, which is the country's largest polluter, complies with all environmental laws."
