Bush Says He's Not A Golfer In Wartime

"I don't want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf," Bush said in a White House interview with the Politico. "I feel I owe it to the families to be as -- to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal."

WhooooHooo Happeeeeeeeeeee

So Conservatives are happier than liberals?
What does that tell us about conservatives?
The country is going down the financial toilet,
war is everywhere,
the ice caps are melting,
there's not enough food to go around,
and that's just some of the real stuff.
They're afraid of married gay people,
they're afraid of liberals who
they think are baby eating pot crazed commies,
they're afraid of anything or anyone they don't understand.
And they are happy?
I have a funny feeling they don't have any more of a clue about happiness than they do about anything else.
Anyone can put a blindfold on over their rose colored glasses and then stick their head up their ass, but is that happiness?
And they rationalize everything?
Boy Howdy!
How else to explain away anything that isn't in their comfort zone.
Have you ever seen the reaction of a conservative at an anti-war rally?
Oooweee, man can they spit the venom and pop their veins out of their pointy little heads!
Ha Ha Ha.
They want to kill and maim and ban and banish and censure and preach.
They are so full of bullshit it's amazing they don't have magic mushrooms growing out of their ears.

Just another deployment?

An earlier story in the paper stated that the force was scheduled to ship out in June, but they shipped out yesterday on what is being called a "regular" deployment.
They should arrive in the gulf in June which is being pegged as the approximate time of war with Iran.............story here

Unable to stand by and watch Lopez's pain, Beverly Cline, who came to send her grandson off with the Peleliu, gave Lopez a hug.

“Your baby is beautiful. He is going to be so much company for you,” Cline told her.

Standing nearby, Irene Buchanan found little comfort in Cline's words. Buchanan is five months pregnant, and her husband, Ryan, a Navy engineer, went with the Peleliu.

Buchanan's sister, Betty Orman, is six months pregnant. Her husband, also a Navy engineer, deployed with the Peleliu as well.

As the cool, dreary morning wore on, Cline began walking back to her car.

“You don't want to know what I think about the war,” she said. “It sucks.”
