"Not like I cared anyway ..." (BR)
Bush: I was just trying to be nice!
Just how compassionate can a conservative get? Our Dear Leader settled the question in an exchange with Senator-elect and former Navy Secretary Jim Webb (D-Va.), whose son is fighting in Iraq, reported in The Hill:
At a private reception held at the White House with newly elected lawmakers shortly after the election, Bush asked Webb how his son, a Marine lance corporal serving in Iraq, was doing.Webb said he successfully fought the urge to bitchslap the President, which is probably more restraint than most military fathers would have exercised, having been sassed at by a half-wit chickenhawk boob like Dubya.
Webb responded that he really wanted to see his son brought back home, said a person who heard about the exchange from Webb.
“I didn’t ask you that, I asked how he’s doing,” Bush retorted, according to the source.
