Bush on Sacrifice and Golf

14 05 2008

When asked in an interview with Politico and Yahoo! News about what personal sacrifices he has made since the war in Iraq began, President Bush said he gave up playing golf. You just can’t make this stuff up.

For the first time, Bush revealed a personal way in which he has tried to acknowledge the sacrifice of soldiers and their families.

“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. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”

Way to take one for the team Mr. Great Decider.

Sidenote: I wonder if this counts as elitist and out of touch?
