Bush, yesterday, explaining why former strategist Matthew Dowd has soured on the Iraq war:
Matthew’s case, as I understand it, is obviously intensified because his son is deployable. In other words, he’s got a son in the U.S. Armed Forces, and I can understand Matthew’s concerns.
You know, if I were Bush, I might not want to draw attention to the fact that he, personally, doesn’t have the same “intensity” of concern as a person with a loved one in military. Not unless he plans to also start taking Cindy Sheehan’s calls.
