George W. Bush Video Countdown, #4

Two days after his 2004 win, President Bush did an excellent press conference. You will likely remember this infamous line:

Let me put it to you this way: I earned capital in the campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it. It is my style.
If you cut out the Social Security discussions it really is a beautiful speech. The upper line remains his most famous: Bush knew full well that in January 2009 his approval rating wouldn't mean much. The group of angry protesters planning to storm the Shaw when Bush comes to Edmonton seem to think this is some crazy accident, when it was mostly by design. Popular or unpopular after the fact bears little impact when facing the Grim Reaper at the end of your life: he cares about your accomplishments, not your number of Facebook Friends [Twitter followers are a totally different story! -ed].

So as the "anti-racism" protesters (is there a Coalition Against Racism But Totally Cool On War?) make their final preparations to get their asses shot by Edmonton Police Services violently call for murder while getting kid glove treatment that would make Greenpeace blush, we bring the sixth installment of Third Edge of the Sword's countdown to George W. Bush speaking in Edmonton one week from tonight.
