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.

When a reporter reminded him that he was born in Connecticut, Bush grinned and said, "Shhhhhh."

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."

Why does anyone in CT vote for him if he's ashamed of being born there?

1. Well, Bush if you're going to stay out of CT you should stay out
of every other race. What about loyalty to your party?

7. The CT race is a referendum on HIM.
That's the real reason why the GOP is so terrified they're comparing Lamont to terror and child killer suspects!
