49. My son in law..
Who had just got out of the Marine Corps with a disability right before the Iraq war started, was pro Bush and pro war.

A couple of weeks ago he went on a rant, unprompted by me, about how Bush was an idiot and we just needed to get out of Iraq. I took him inside to the computer and showed him the video of Bush sitting on his ass for at least five minutes after being told by Andrew Card that America was under attack. Then I showed him the speech transcript on the White House website where Bush claimed to have seen the first plane hit the WTC live on television.. He had very little to say.

Day before yesterday I asked him what he thought before the war when I predicted it was going to turn out to be a disaster. I told him it wouldn't hurt my feelings no matter what he said..

He evaded my question. :)
