The Double Talk Express

In the 2000 election, the campaign of John McCain, George W. Bush’s chief rival, was called the Straight Talk Express. Since taking office, the Bush Administration has run the Double Talk Express. They talked about respecting civil liberties after 9/11, then rammed through the Patriot Act. They talked about changing the tone in Washington, then ran ads comparing Tom Daschle to Saddam Hussein. They talked about No Child Left Behind, then underfunded the program. As a supposed straight talking Texan, George W. Bush should know that actions speak louder than words. George W. Bush may say one thing, but his actions say something far grimmer, grimier, and radically conservative than America can accept.
