Bush calls war in Iraq "Romantic"

President George W. Bush spoke with U.S. military and civilian personnel about the continued challenges with the war in Afghanistan now going on it's 6th year. The President was briefed on topics ranging from fighting police corruption to the increase in the poppy drug trade. Afghanistan produced more than 8,200 tons of opium in 2007, making the war-torn nation the world's largest illicit drug producer.

As he spoke with soldiers via a remote video link he said, “I'm a little envious, it must be exciting for you—in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger.”

I think he's just itching to get that flight suit on again.

Bush needs to stop talking already. Isn't he supposed to be on vacation?

That Gen. Patton speech is oddly appropriate.
