Sen. John Warner, R-Va., recalled that during World War II, President Franklin D. Roosevelt often went on the radio in "fireside chats" to explain to the nation in detail the conduct of the war in Europe and Asia.The Senator misses the point that people have realized that the Shrubbery lies: he lied to get his war and he lies to continue it. FDR was a much better speaker with a much better message, and was speaking about a war that was forced upon the country, not a choice made by a cabal of zealots living in an alternate universe.
"I think it would be to Bush's advantage," said Warner, who served in the Navy during the war. "It would bring him closer to the people, dispel some of this concern that understandably our people have, about the loss of life and limb, the enormous cost of this war to the American public," he said.
