Bush gives up golf for the troops


How much you want to bet that within a month of the election, the national terror alert level goes to high or severe?

oh and he will return to using email once he leaves office…

“I didn’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.”

Wait, this isn’t an Onion article?

Now watch this drive!:

Maybe that was the real reason to give up golf right before an election? I’m still mad the Democratic Party didn’t use more stuff like this in their ads before the 04 election.

He said he looks forward to “e-mailing to my buddies. I can remember as governor I stayed in touch with all kinds of people around the country, firing off e-mails at all times of the day to stay in touch with my pals.”

Bush is so darn folksy I just want to vote for him again.

With a sudden terrorist attack, an invasion of Iran, a suspension of congressional powers claimed by the executive branch followed up with a controversial suprememe court decision you could get your chance!

Here’s some commentary on this topic. Keith Olbermann completely and absolutely rips Bush a new asshole for 12 minutes straight. I don’t think I could’ve said a single word of this better myself.

"Apart from your medical files, which dutifully record your torn calf muscle and the knee pain which forced you to give up running at the same time – coincidence, no doubt – the bombing in Baghdad which killed Sergio Vieira de Mello of the U.N. and interrupted your round of golf was on Aug. 19, 2003.

Yet CBS News has records of you playing golf as late as Oct. 13 of that year, nearly two months later."


That was fucking awesome.


He lays it on a bit thick at times, but in essence there’s not a single thing in there I’d really disagree with.

Controlled Rage (n): see Olbermann, Keith. I mean, holy shit.

To [mis]quote someone from one of the blogs I read (I forget which, maybe wonkette?): Too bad he didn’t give up the Iraq War in favor of Golf.

Haha wow, golf indeed.

A golf of Tonkin incident?

Groan. You are all very punny. :)
