Bush: I Gave Up Golf For The Troops!!!

Another proof of mental retardation.

"I don't want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf," he said. "I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal."

I know. Next he'll be joining the troops. I think someone should ship him out, and Blair. They both should be put on front lines.

His speech at the Arlington cemetary was embarassing.

Is the point you are trying to make that he should just go ahead and play golf while he is the president? It appears that you are trying to be critical, but offer no argument.

Because, it was highly political with a giant focus on "stay the course" mixed heavily with the same patriotism shit that he's been saying for the past 8 years. I tried to find the transcript but the only one i found is the 2006 one on the whitehouse.org page, so therefore I won't quote, but it really flipped my switch. Something about more and more gravestones every year...I'll try to find it later.

There was nothing political about it. At least the people there, myself included, did not take it that way. He gave a fairly standard Memorial Day speech. Spoke of the sacrifices made for country, the losses felt at home, the need to honor those we lost and those who they left behind. His description of our service members as, "an awesome bunch of people" drew the kind of spontaneous applause that is uncommon at these events.

Of course he spoke of finishing the job that those we lost set out to do. That is not political and it is completely appropriate.

Show me ONE Bush's speach that was not an embarrassement....

As for Ganeil, can't wait to hear when the Dems get into the WH -- is he going to attend the speaches? Is he going to be loyal to the leaders?

The title of this thread should be...

"HUSH: "I gave up troops for Gulf"

Obama sees dead people. That's what came out of his Memorial Day speech.

It is sad that bush does NOT see dead people, over 4100 since 2003 for nothing. I am sure the mothers of those soldiers also see dead people in their nightmares...
And the lunatic is proud to give up Golf for the Troops and lies he spread (and his own people are slowly admitting: McClellan for example, Powell a long time ago...)

Bush is not a cold hearted a hole like you would like ppl to believe. There is a reason we are in Iraq. No, he is not a good speaker. We can all agree on that.
