Bush says he'll stay out of Senate race

WASHINGTON (AP) President Bush said Monday he'll stay out of the Connecticut Senate race, widely seen as a referendum on the war in Iraq.

...

"I'm going to stay out of Connecticut," Bush said at a news conference Monday.

...

Bush said during his news conference Monday that he was troubled that so many U.S. House and Senate candidates were calling for withdrawal U.S. forces from Iraq. Lamont is among those calling for a speedy withdrawal.

"There are a lot of good decent people saying 'get out now. Vote for me, I'll do everything I can to cut off money...' It's a big mistake," Bush said. "It would be wrong, in my judgment, to leave before the mission is completed in Iraq."

1. Well, he seems to be unaware that his 'judgement' is a laughingstock.

3. "I'm going to stay out of Connecticut"
Best thing CT citizens probably have ever heard from Bush... now if we could get him to say that about the entire United States. :)

6. He should have stayed out of the Mexican election.
Same goes for the Nicaragua election.

11. That's the best thing he could do to help Joementum
Bush** is about as popular in Connecticut as ice storms, Duke basketball or the Ebola virus.

12. Why is he not supporting the GOP candidate?
Disgraceful lack of loyalty. The man has cut and run and flippered and floppered.
