I guess we all need to make some sort of sacrifice because of the war in Iraq.
US President George W. Bush said in an interview out Tuesday that he quit playing golf in 2003 out of respect for the families of US soldiers killed in the conflict in Iraq, now in its sixth year.
“I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal,” he said in an interview for Yahoo! News and Politico magazine.
“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.”
Does he have even the smallest clue as to how that sounds?
UPDATE: Not only does Bush seem clueless about how this sounds, it appears he lied about it as well. And finally, Keith Olbermann puts the whole Bush Yahoo/Politico interview in perspective.
