Only George W. Bush would rebuff a parent who served his country both in the government and in the military before election to the presidency (a father who, it should be noted, waged a SUCCESSFUL war against Iraq and looks pretty smart for not going to Baghdad and ousting Saddam Hussein, as all of the neocons have wanted forever of course).
Poppy knows what's coming, even if his clueless progeny doesn't.
Don't get me wrong - I have serious issues with Bush Sr., but at the very least, he surrounded himself with competent people, and Sr. drew from his own formidable background in foreign policy.
And now Dubya wants to run and hide from Iraq and talk about the economy, huh (and "healthy" for who, I wonder? I guess the headline refers to the investor class, since everything has gone swimmingly for them these past six years).
Great. That should help the Democrats as well, since Shrub has wrecked that also.
