We’ve been informed by a number of sources, including Vice President Dick Cheney, that no one has given up more in this war on terrorism than our own President George W. Bush. The poor guy has had to sacrifice so much because of this on-going war.
The latest casualty in this battle for him is a major one. He’s gone public with the stunning news that, as a result of the war, he’s given up golf.
Said Bush, “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.”
“I remember when [Sergio] de Mello, who was at the U.N., got killed in Baghdad as a result of these murderers taking this good man’s life,” Bush says. “I was playing golf — I think I was in central Texas — and they pulled me off the golf course and I said, ‘It’s just not worth it anymore to do.’”
Now hopefully the terrorists see his sacrifice and realize this whole thing has just gone too far. I wonder if they have golf counseling to deal with the grief this must cause?
