all Americans can take pride in the example our democracy sets for the world by holding elections even in a time of war.

Why is he acting like this was a monumental achievment? Elections were held in every war in the 20th century.

Were there discussions in the white house of not having the mid term elections beacuse of the war?

Is the president now setting up an excuse for not having the 2008 presidential elections?

I really have no idea why Bush is saying this.
