Who says Bush didn't sacrifice for the Iraq War effort?: He and Laura gave up "entertaining"

from ThinkProgress:



Bush: Laura and I gave up entertaining because of the Iraq war.

During an interview yesterday with NBC Newss John Yang, President Bush offered his reason as to why he and his wife Laura havent been big entertainers at the White House over the years:

BUSH: Weve had a lot of fun in this experience. We havent been a real social first couple. A lot of it had to do with the war. There were periods of the presidency where it was just inappropriate to be big entertainers But we had a lot of friends and family here in the White House and its been really a lot of fun.

Last May, Bush also said that he gave up golfing because of the Iraq war, in solidarity with U.S. troops and their families. Nevertheless, as Bush noted, his time in the White House has been really a lot of fun.

8. But they still never call him out on it.... Can you imagine a kid at school?
That could get away with his crap, by either the faculty, the students, his peers or his church?
I couldn't when I grew up and neither could others and I'm a little younger than Bush

This is a major breakdown of ethics and accountability by our country.

He is still the kid that got away with blowing up frogs.

6. The arrogance and sociopath tendencies are astounding
aren't they?

They remind me of Marie Antoinette, "Let them eat cake", or Mussoline who up to the bitter end would not accept his wrong doing.

They have no shame of letting the Gulf Coast die.....Thousands of American soldiers die, hundreds of thousands of Iraqi's die.......they have no shame.
