Bush acknowledges Peak

Peak Recruitment that is.
-- Bush prime-time speech at Fort Bragg
"And to those watching tonight who are considering a military career, there is no higher calling than service in our Armed Forces."
We have long since gone past peak as far as the total number of soldiers recruited by the military goes. Still, I thought the blatant advertising for more soldiers kind of jarring.

More importantly, why oh why, does not Bush acknowledge the silently effective war we can wage by becoming more energy efficient and conservation minded. He just continues to refuse to suggest that the American public do their share of sacrifice, other than by praying and waving the flag. The NotCarter presidency continues.
