Bush sacrifices his golf game in solidarity with Iraq dead

President Bush, in an interview yesterday (Monday), may have finally expressed his true understanding of the sacrifice young American men and women have made in Iraq.
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.
Well it is certainly wonderful to know that the president, who never served in the armed forces, is finally making a sacrifice "in solidarity" with the families of young men and women who have been killed in Iraq. I suspect it would also offend the sensibilities of the survivors of the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis who have been killed in Iraq if they saw the POTUS playing golf.

Here's Keith Olbermann's "comment" on Countdown in response to Bush's comments

Bush's golf answer to the sacrifices question, sounds like SNL skit.

Actually the entire Bush reign has seemed like an SNL sketch, but unfortunately the deaths resulting from their decisions are real.
