Promoting Their President's War

Reported by Deborah - June 28, 2005

Only 12 hours to go before their President makes his speech defending and promoting his policies in Iraq so The Friends were very busy this morning. At 6AM Brian Kilmeade and Kiran Chetry were chit chatting about the Gallup Poll indicating that support for Iraq is way down. What would have happened if George Washington had stopped fighting when things got tough in Valley Forge was a question they pondered. This set the tone for the arrival of the star cheerleader, Condaleeza Rice.

Rice in her most upbeat and soothing voice assured everyone that President Bush understood the concerns about the war. Shifting blame to the media, she acknowledged it was hard for people after seeing pictures on TV. Stressing the importance of this first anniversary of Iraq's sovereignity she used terms like "great mission" and continued sacrifice."

Doocy asked Rice about the John Kerry Op/Ed piece in the New York Times asking Bush to tell the truth about Iraq.Condi was ready for that question.
" The President is sincere.The American people always come together when the stakes are high."
" We must change the poisonous politics in the region that produces terrorists."

The interview ended with a humanizing conversation about Rice's fashion sense allowing her to talk about how much she loved to shop.

Then viewers got a visit from Lindsay Graham who had communicated the concerns of North Carolinians. He was totally on board with their President adding some phrases like "terrorists trying to kill democracy" and " give the Iraqi people a chance."

The message was wrapped in a tidy package with a piece about The Dixie Chicks . Mike Gallagher has plans to follow their tour with his own red, white and blue tour bus to counter them. Unfortunatly, I missed the details of his plan but definitely got the point.

comment: We can expect to see Rice and Graham throughout the day on Fox. By the time Fox viewers hear the speech, they will already know what they thought of it. The magic of FNC.
