Q Mr. President, you haven't been golfing in recent years. Is that related to Iraq?
THE PRESIDENT: Yes, it really is. I don't want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the Commander-in-Chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be as -- to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.
Poor President Bush! All alone in setting a good example while Dick hunts and Condi buys shoes during times of national crises.
You know what sends the wrong signal? Defense Secretary Rumsfeld not signing condolence letters. Throwing out the Geneva Convention. Invading an oil-producing nation and passing on the ten-billion-a-month cost on to domestic petrol purchasers.Want to sent the right message, Mr. President?
Get those two bums you call daughters enlisted. That's right - you have two healthy children of service age, and all they did was follow in your footsteps with a prestigious college degree and never seeing a day of combat.
Honestly, how much danger would they be in? Very little.
A) it could be announced that they are in an undisclosed location due to 'security concerns'*
B) Let's face it, thousands of other soldiers would die keeping them safe, no matter how poor their decision making skills on the battlefield.
Sorry to hear you had to cut back on the golf, big guy. 1600 acres is plenty big for your own course. Now explain all those 'vacation days' at the ranch to service families who haven't seen each other in over a year.
*Funny, Prince Harry was caught doing his duty.
