Bush Heckled—Finally

When people start heckling George Bush, you know he’s in trouble. He’s been sanctified for so long he’s started believing his own bullshit and he believes having uniforms behind him protects him from the truth. Nope.

I keep telling myself that sooner or later, the harder they come (and that's clearly the roles Bush and Cheney and their junta want to project) the harder they fall.

Bush heckled during terror speech

At a turbulent point in his presidency, US President Bush has sought to bolster public backing for his war policies, just days after the US death toll in Iraq surpassed 2,000.

"We will never back down, we will never give in and we will never accept anything less than complete victory," the president said.

Bush spoke to an audience largely made up of uniformed service members, delivering a speech which was one of several he has given recently to defend his war policies.

It was nearly the same as the one he delivered recently in Washington.

Outside the Norfolk convention hall, a small group of anti-war protesters greeted him by chanting "Bush lies."

Inside, as the president spoke, a man on the second level interrupted him, yelling "War is terrorism. War is terrorism. Step down now Mr President. Torture is terrorism."

Bush continued speaking as the man left the hall.

Mindful of the public anxiety, the president attempted to underscore the danger the United States faces from terrorists, comparing leaders of al Qaida to Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin.
