    I stand corrected. Apparently, our president has made tremendous personal sacrifice in the Iraq war.

    The Bush family has made plenty of personal sacrifices for the war! Why, GW's mother and former first lady Barbara Bush offered herself to the troops as a comfort woman.

    oddly, no one took her up on the offer.

    Yes, and everything Keith Oberbitter says is the truth -- NOT!



    So President Bush gave up golf because he thought it was inappropriate for him to be seen out on the golf course while troops are dying in Iraq. Seems like a logical thing for him to do -- a smart move -- and I agree it wouldn't look good. So, what's the big deal?

    Too bad he did not give up being the president. What a major douchebag. Somethings you keep to yourself.

    In fairness to Bush, he was asked by a reporter why he gave up golf...it's not like he called a press conference and announced it from The Rose Garden

    Still lame. He should have said that he can't afford to waste a minute putting forth an effort to be a good president. Since he is sooo horrible. His PR person should have told him to give a better reason. It trivializes the war and its casualties.

    "I didn't have time, I'm running the country?" Didn't occur to him? Or, "I've spent more time on vacation than any other president in history, I thought I'd hang out on my boat more."

    Please, solidarity? ::gags:: Empathy? If you had Empathy, Mr. Pres, you'd be in your freaking office more.

    Yeah you guys, in all fairness to Bush, the man is having a tough time right now. I mean how do you think you would feel if you lied a country into war, wrecked that same country's economy, disemboweled that same country's constitution, allowed a major city in that same country to drown, caused countless deaths and mass destruction in other country's around the world, and will go down in history as a colossal failure, both as a president and a human being. I mean, c'mon, the guy should at least be able to still play golf and not feel guilty about it, right?

    Our glorious President suffers from what Prince Phillip once referred to as Dentopedology, the ability of opening one's mouth and putting one's foot in it. I can't remember any other public figure who says the most inappropriate thing at the wrong moment.

    I wonder, however, what Clinton gave up during Mogadishu and Bosnia - dropped down to only one hummer a day from Monica?

    Reminds of what Anne Richards once said about him being born with "a silver foot in his mouth".

    I think Bill actually got a few extra hummers a day as a stress relief measure. Who could possibly begrudge him that?icon_lol.gif

    Didn't he mention something about wishing he was younger so he could participate side-by-side in the grand romantic adventure in Iraq with the service men and women? While I'm sure they are very proud to serve and feel their contribution valuable, I find it hard to believe they would characterize their experience as he did.

    He is a bit of a hot head with a limited scope of mind. I guess he represents an extreme. Interesting to see the anger towards Bush in the media, considering they all were so yeah team a couple years ago.

    His self-righteous indignation is a bit much for me, but someone has to balance out the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Anne Cunter and that psychotic goiter on Fox.icon_lol.gif

I read that Cheney said that bush "CARRIES THE BIGGEST BURDEN"---and that bush says that he sheds tears, and prays every day, and that there should be an "INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER" My god these two are so far removed mentally and in actuality from reality, that the lawbreaking killers cannot see just how pathetic these statements appear to the rest of the world. THEY ARE BOTH DISPICABLE BEYOND DISCRIPTION OF WORDS !!!!!

    Just when I think you can't be any more of a pathetic lapdog of the Bushes, you prove me wrong again.
