President Bush Gives Up Golf For Iraq

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Well fuck all. The Politico‘s Mike Allen held an interview with President Bush today in which the Commander-in-Chief announced how he is showing his gratitude to the troops. “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 in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.” Can’t… what the… some game vs. death… DOES NOT COMPUTE. [Jonathan Martin]

    Damn that he did, damn if he didn’t. If Saddam Hussein still in power today plus Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad continuously calling to wipe Israel off the map, I wonder what doom-and-gloom main stream media would be saying today. Saddam Hussein used Chemical weapon in three different situations, attacked 6 nations, violated the terms of the Gulf War surrender, planned the assassination of a former US President, collaborated with and harbored terrorists, and was one year away from building an atomic bomb before he was finally overthrown, according to the New York Times. By the way, do you believe Iran is trying to make nuclear weapon? Make your computation!
