Bush's Post-Presidency Activities: One Suggestion

This from Dan Froomkin's column in The Washington Post:

Richard Roeper writes in his Chicago Sun-Times opinion column: "In a recent column I speculated on President Bush's post-White House plans. What should he do with himself?

"Alice Collins of Oak Lawn has an idea.

"'Three hundred and sixty-five days a year, in the wind and snow of winter and the heat and humidity of summer, let him tend to the graves of the almost 4,000 men and women who have given their lives in the debacle of Iraq. They honored their oaths, obeyed their commander-in-chief and sacrificed their lives of promise to a lying, unprincipled warmonger.

"'He can begin at the grave of my grandson, Lcpl Jonathan W. Collins, killed in action on 8/8/2004.'"

Oh two crows, I grew up near Oak Lawn and I wish I could go over and give Alice Collins a hug. I don't think it could be said any better and I only wish she could say it to Bush's face while he is on camera, for the whole world to see.

What Bush, Cheney, and the rest of those warmongers did to our military and our country is beyond disgusting. Our soldiers took an oath to serve their country...Bush dishonored every single soldier and why guys like General Betrayus allows him to do this to the soldiers in their command is beyond me.

Murderers...the whole lot of 'em.

yeah, ME, it would do Alice and the rest of us a world of good.
but, it would roll of Bush's and Cheney's backs.

Remember what happened when Webb said, "That's between me and my boy, Mr. President"?
acourse, Webb showed what he's really made of later: refusing to go through a receiving line is one thing, I guess -- standing by the principles he espoused during his campaign is another.
