Bush's Golf Story....
Oh boohoo. The Decider's big sacrifice for the troops in Iraq.... he gave up golf. (Huffington)
But did he?
In an interview with Politico last week President Bush laid the heavy one on us.... "I don't want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf." He said he made the decision in August 2003 after the bombing of the UN headquarters in Baghdad.
Well.... he almost gave it up. He played a round on October 13 of that year. Maybe he forgot.
Or, maybe it's another nose-growing Bushism. You see, Boy George suffered a minor muscle tear in his right calf which had healed by August 2003, but he was still having problems and said he suspected he had a tear in September of that year.
It hurt him to run.... he gave that up.... his calf hurt, his knees ached. Gave up golf for the troops.... tell us another one.
If only The Decider had quit the presidency and taken up golf....
