Oh. My. God.

Dan Froomkin:
    President Bush wishes that he could be alongside the troops in Iraq -- except that he's too old.

    At least that's what he reportedly told a blogger embedded with U.S. troops in Iraq. In the first session of its kind, Bush spent almost an hour on Friday talking with 10 so-called "milbloggers," including two who participated by video conference from a military base outside Baghdad...

    ...He certainly hasn't ever put himself in harm's way. The president who avoided serving in Vietnam as a young man has made only three visits to Iraq since declaring that major combat operations were over more than four years ago. All three of the visits were unannounced and featured extensive security.

    Bush's total time in country? Less than 15 hours...

Thanks for that...
Love your "handle", by the way.
