Just say no to drapes


Bush attended a rally in Indiana on behalf of Rep. Mike Sodrel today. For some reason, the audience was strongly opposed to drapes (possibly they all work in a venetian blind factory):
BUSH: They think the election is already over. As a matter of fact, some of them in Washington are already measuring the drapes for their new offices.

AUDIENCE: Booo --
Actually they booed a lot of things (twelve, according to the transcript):
BUSH: The Democrats believe they should raise your taxes so they can spend your money.

AUDIENCE: Booo --

... the Minority Leader in the House, who wants to be the Speaker --

AUDIENCE: Booo --

...Just this week in New Jersey --

AUDIENCE: Booo --
And so on.

If you think the president of the United States throwing out boo, excuse me, booo lines is a little crass, just a little bit beneath the dignity of the office...
THE PRESIDENT: When it comes to listening in on the terrorists, what’s the Democratic answer? Just say no. When it comes to detaining terrorists, what’s the Democrat answer?

AUDIENCE: Just say no!

THE PRESIDENT: When it comes to questioning terrorists, what’s the Democrat answer?

AUDIENCE: Just say no!

THE PRESIDENT: When it comes to trying terrorists, what’s the Democrat’s answer?

AUDIENCE: Just say no!

THE PRESIDENT: So when the Democrats ask for your vote on November the 7th, what are you going to say?

AUDIENCE: Just say no! (Applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: Here are some questions we’re asking all around the country: Do you want your government to listen in on the terrorists?

AUDIENCE: Yes!

THE PRESIDENT: Do you want your government to detain the terrorists?

AUDIENCE: Yes!

THE PRESIDENT: Do you want your government to question the terrorists?

AUDIENCE: Yes!

THE PRESIDENT: Do you want your government to do whatever it takes to bring justice to the terrorists?

AUDIENCE: Yes!

THE PRESIDENT: And so when Republicans ask for your vote on November 7, what’s your answer?

AUDIENCE: Yes! (Applause.)
