5. His speech has been written since 2002. There are slight variations
and certain things get emphasized more depending on the circumstances but basically it's been the same speech over and over. He'll go with domestic first this time around, then once he thinks we're calmed down and reassured about the economy, he'll transition to the war.

6. oh, yeah, We are gonna be so calmed down about the economy
we'll be in the twilight zone by the time * gets to speechifying about how well Iraq will turn out if we could only send more money and lives over there. Maybe we should send the Iraqis checks for $600.00 each, it'd be cheaper than the billions we're spending now.

9. I think his speechwriters are smart enough to leave "hard work" out of it.

11. Don't forget the admonishment to his successor:
"Our work in Iraq and elsewhere will not be finished soon."
