Bush Slaps Webb Like a Child

Looks like President Bush can be a bit snippy when he wants. I am glad to see that and hope he is able to give the Democrats a bit of Hell as they prepare to take charge in six or so weeks. The President was at a function with incoming Senator James Webb, a relic of days gone by, when Bush asked Webb how his son was doing.

At a private reception held at the White House with newly elected lawmakers shortly after the election, Bush asked Webb how his son, a Marine lance corporal serving in Iraq, was doing.

Webb responded that he really wanted to see his son brought back home, said a person who heard about the exchange from Webb.

“I didn’t ask you that, I asked how he’s doing,” Bush retorted, according to the source. The Hill

Webb was a big wig in the service and I wonder how he reacted when parents told him that they wanted their children home? It is also a pretty stupid answer when you figure that all parents want their children to come home. Bush asked how the boy was doing, not if he wanted to come home and not what Webb wanted. Webb had to take the chance to try and show up the President and he got his shorts tightened up a bit. Webb said it made him so angry he wanted to punch Bush.

Webb confessed that he was so angered by this that he was tempted to slug the commander-in-chief, reported the source, but of course didn’t. The Hill

I see that Webb suffers from BDS and he is just getting to the Senate. This should be a fun two years. I really wish that Webb had punched Bush. First of all, I think Bush could take Webb in the fight but Webb would be in jail and he is not black like Cop Socker McKinney so he could not throw the race card. That would have been hilarious.

I think Webb is genuinely concerned about his son. We all read how he thinks little boys should be treated by their dads and maybe he is longing for the good ole days. Perhaps, given the descriptive nature of the father son interaction displayed in his book, the boy is safer in Iraq.

I imagine that some from the left will chide Bush for the response. These would be the same people who saw Bill Clinton come unhinged and said it was time he defended himself and the Democrats.

    Attention seeking idjit- thats all he is. Kind of like all the Lemoncrats.

    Hey – Bush knew what Webb ran on. Webb just called him on what should have been a topic best left alone. How insensitive. Webb was killing VietCong while George was sippin’ whiskey with Southern Pols. George is not 1/10 the man Jim Webb is.

    Funny how Bush got all uptight when Webb asked a simple question about bringing his son home. I wonder if George H.W. Bush used to get uptight when people would ask him about pulling strings to keep Baby Bush out of Vietnam>
