Baghdad- President George W. Bush kicked off his campaign for his second term in the Oval Office by re-defining his strategy.

In front of a cheering crowd, surrounded by Hula dancers and gun-toting children, Bush declared: "Read my lips: No New Wars."

It was surely a move eerily reminiscent of his father's campaign motto in the 1992 presidential election, wherein the elder Bush declared: "Read my lips: No New Taxes." Unfortunately, the elder Bush lost to Bill Clinton.

Democratic party frontman John Kerry immediately declared in a statement to the press: "We are currently gathering the best lip readers in the country to dissect what Mr. Bush really said. He may have meant something else. You never know with that guy."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
