Just for the hell of it I decided to run a word check of Bush’s speech to see if demonstrated his usual diversity of vocabulary.  I wasn’t disappointed.
Bush invoked the word “terror” or a variation of it 34 times in his 28-minute speech (that’s an average of once every 49 seconds if you’re counting).

Moving right along:

“Freedom” was mentioned 21 times

“mission” 12 times

“September 11th” was invoked 5 times

“Bin Laden” was mentioned twice

“Al Qaeda” only merited a single mention this time around.

Funny, “weapons of mass destruction” merited nary a mention.
