(NEWS) President Bush will deliver his entire message to the nation Thursday night while shouting into a bullhorn, sources close the White House say. According to anonymous sources, the President is trying to recapture the support of the nation he received immediately following September 11. The President "feels he is more imposing and leader-like with the bullhorn," a source said. In fact, said one senior aide, the President often conducts meetings with the bullhorn. "He started an informal meeting the other day yelling 'I can hear you!'" the aide said. "It was crazy. But that's Bush."
Presidential historians say this would be the first time a President has addressed the nation in this fashion. The President's address is Thursday evening.
