Bush Now Longs For The Romanticism of Combat

Strange that Bush, like Cheney and others, worked soooooo hard to keep himself out of combat in Vietnam when he had the chance to go, but nowwwwwww he finds the thought of fighting our neverending war in Afghanistan to be romantic....I can only wonder what Pat Tillman's family thinks when they read this?????

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush got an earful on Thursday about problems and progress in Afghanistan where a war has dragged on for more than six years but been largely eclipsed by Iraq.
In a videoconference, Bush heard from U.S. military and civilian personnel about the challenges ranging from fighting local government and police corruption to persuading farmers to abandon a lucrative poppy drug trade for other crops.

"I must say, I'm a little envious," Bush said. "If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed."
"It must be exciting for you ... in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You're really making history, and thanks," Bush said.
