Washington, UNITED STATES: US President George W. Bush speaks to the National Cattlemen's Beef Association 28 March 2007 in Washington, DC.

"They have bloggers in Baghdad, just like we've got here," President Bush informed a chuckling audience at the National Cattlemen's Beef Association meeting in DC before paraphrasing the writings of two of them:

"Displaced families are returning home, marketplaces are seeing more activity, stores that were long shuttered are now reopening. We feel safer about moving in the city now. Our people want to see this effort succeed. We hope the governments in Baghdad and America do not lose their resolve."

Bush didn't identify the bloggers, but the quote sounds like it came from the March 7 Wall Street Journal op-ed by IraqtheModel.com's Mohammed and Omar Fadhil.

Congratulations to Mohammed and Omar! The President mentioned you in a speech. You have arrived.
