Bush Makes Ultimate Sacrifice for Iraq
Does anyone really believe that Bush quit golf out of respect for the troops? Doesn't it seem more likely that Karl Rove told him that he was hurting himself politically with displays like the one in this video?
Bush says that he quit golf in 2003, out of respect for the families of soldiers killed in Iraq:
"I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal," he said in an interview for Internet hub Yahoo! 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."
If Bush is telling the truth about the reason he stopped playing golf, why didn't he stop when we invaded Afghanistan?
