Holy smokes. Is she back on the weed....<br><br>
"The first lady was on NBC's Today show mostly to talk about the president's malaria initiative, but at one point Ann Curry showed some video from Iraq and asked Bush, in a hushed, solicitous tone: "You know the American people are suffering, watching --"<br><br>
"The first lady replied: "Oh, I know that, very much. And believe me, no one suffers more than their president and I do when we watch this. And certainly the commander in chief who has asked our military to go into harm's way --"<br><br>
From:<br><a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/blog/2007/04/25/BL2007042501330_pf.html" target="_blank">http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...501330_pf.html</a><br><br>
Good grief. Someone needs to buy that lady a clue.

Yes, she definitely appears to be out of touch with the reality of the situation. I find her comments to be insulting to every woman, man, child and soldier who has been shot, maimed and blown up into fragments. Not to mention those who have limited access to clean water, electricity, food and a regular income.<br><br>
Suffering... I'm afraid that President Bush has no comprehension of what it means to suffer.<br><br>
Peace

Is that along the lines of, "This is going to hurt me more than it is going to hurt you," before you beat your child? (general you as I know no one on MDC would do this.)

I don't even know what to say to that. The stupidity of her comment is so glaring it's insulting.
