Golf and War

This item from today’s Excite homepage–

Among a number of ridiculous things W says, the top of the list is this one–

“I didn’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.”

Unfortunately, the (P)resident has it backwards. He should have given up playing WAR, you know, committing other people’s lives and deaths to imperialist attacks on other sovereign nations.

I’m not one of the people who thinks W is an idiot (I think the whole Bubba act is just that, an act), but this is enough to make me rethink that.

Inconsiderate asshole. People are sacrificing their lives for your wargames, and you think giving up GOLF is some huge sacrifice?
