    Bush to dead soldier's mom: "How do you know his life would have been good?"

    .....Dolores tried to give Bush a sense of what type of person Erik had been. She described her son as a "comedian" whose favorite saying was, "Life is good." The president replied, "How do you know his life would have been good?"

    Dolores was shocked by Bush's eagerness to question the value of her son's life. She told the president, "Nobody wants to die."

    @Nordicdusk: Imagine that idiot being the leader of your country.

    I've never voted for him, and in fact worked hard spreading the word to try and get him voted out last election. Sadly, it didn't take. If there is any one thing that I could say to the rest of the world, it would be that we are more embarassed than anyone else by him, more hurt by him than anyone else(obviously), and that the majority of the country is actively working to both take his party's control of congress away from them, and to find a suitable replacement.

    We'll be working for the next half-century to try and fix the craptastic foul-up his eight years have been.
    I love G.R.I.T.S.(Girls Raised In The South)

    I'm shocked at this. I knew he was a shoddy president but it's hard to believe someone could be this callous towards a dead soldier's mother.

    American politics has degenerated into a very bad joke with both major parties producing more than their share of clowns and buffoons. As far the record goes, neither Gore nor Kerry had anything over Bush in terms of intelligence or integrity, which is frightening.:eek
    We really have not been offered any real, competent choices for the last several elections.

    That said, it is utterly reprehensible that he should have said that to the mother of a fallen soldier. Not only is it moronic; it shows a complete lack of compassion and concern.

    I told someone today that politicians are professional boogeymen, but they can't scare each other straight. It was a comment based on something related to some incompetency in the Pentagon. I didn't think much of what I said until I realized I made a good point.

    Large governments like the federal government has a knack of hiring the lowest common denominator in the capability to lead. Our "leaders" can scare us well, but they are not in the business of implementing actual solutions. But, this is the nature of large bureaucracies, anyway.

    [One real solution is to split the United States into economic and cultural areas and let them decide their own fates; the political realities of the Midwest is far different than here in New York, for what it is worth.]

    Anyway, the comment is stupid. Bush is a product of political machine anyway, and it is idiotic to just point fingers at him for greater problems we face.

    Yeah, and it's really sad how many people I know who really believe everything will get so much better if we elect a democrat
