President Bush's doom and gloom speech about the economy last night reminded Jon Stewart of another speech Bush gave five years ago. Same script, different crisis.
STEWART: This is so weird, the President standing there with the carpet and the little flaggy things behind him to tell us something really scary. It's not deja vu; that's French. Uhh... I guess I'm having a freedom memory.
BUSH (2003): My fellow citizens, events in Iraq have now reached the final days of deicison.
STEWART: That's right -- Iraq! Thank God I'm not having a synapse misfire. He gave this exact same speech five years ago. Which points do we want to hit? First things first...should we be scared...?
