State of the Union '06 - Bush on Terrorism & Tyranny ...

Focus on terror, tyranny and totalitarianism deflects attention from foreign policy missteps and keeps the electorate in a constant state of nervousness. And, of course, "the advance of freedom" ... in the Middle East ... "We seek the end of tyranny in our world" - yet, this does little to allay fears of Administration eavesdropping.

We're impressed by the mention Zimbabwe receives as the situation there deserves attention. And, what about Liberia?

"We love our freedom and we will fight to keep it" is the predictable pep rally tone we expected in this speech.
