CHARLES CITY, Va. (AP) — A reflective President Bush on Monday honored acts of everyday decency and supreme sacrifice, and called on Americans to give back to their communities.

In his first speech dedicated to Thanksgiving, Bush said the holiday is a time to hail — and emulate — those who serve causes larger than themselves. He cited police, firefighters, teachers and religious leaders as examples.

Acts of decency and supreme sacrifice... I wonder if Bush has a clue of what those two words even mean. No, sacrificing a bottle of Gin in a Houston bar does not constitute decency.

Isnt that what the newly elected congress and senate promised to do?
What have they done thus far? Gained an impressive approval rating of 11% Lower than GWB's LOL
They have had just about a year to get something accomplished. Other than nonbinding resolutions which = waste of time, they have done nothing.

I was always taught that it's better to lead by EXAMPLE than by instruction

Agrred... Our democraticly elected public officials should sacrifice their heath insurance and use the money saved as a strting point for the poor. I do mean all of the elected officials.
Its easy to ask others to sacrifice. The real test is when you do it first.
