The Great Sacrifice

Kevin Drum has a great catch on this quote from Bush during his interview by Jim "Softball" Lehrer:

LEHRER: Let me ask you a bottom-line question, Mr. President. If it is as important as you've just said -- and you've said it many times -- as all of this is, particularly the struggle in Iraq, if it's that important to all of us and to the future of our country, if not the world, why have you not, as president of the United States, asked more Americans and more American interests to sacrifice something?....

PRESIDENT BUSH: Well, you know, I think a lot of people are in this fight. I mean, they sacrifice peace of mind when they see the terrible images of violence on TV every night.

Damn, it's good to be a ... Chickenhawk.


  • Hey, at least he's not telling us the best "sacrifice" is our shopping dollars this time...

  • Yeah, it used to be that a Chickenhawk needed to go to the mall to "sacrifice" for the war effort. Now, they only need to watch a lil Fox News or listen to a lil bit of Rush. What a group of heroes.

  • To hell with everyone who voted in favor of the war in the first place. They are as stupid and as treasonous as the president.
