What Is He Talking About?

George Bush was at his most obtuse today in his press conference before going on another holiday to Crawford.

"The bottom line is this," Bush said. "Congress's failure to fund our troops on the front lines will mean that some of our military families could wait longer for their loved ones to return from the front lines. And others could see their loved ones headed back to the war earlier than they need to. That is unacceptable to me, and I believe it is unacceptable to the American people."

What is he talking about? How will the removal of funding for the war make families wait longer for the loved ones? And how will they be sent back quicker? This is the opposite of what the Democrats are intending and, in fact, what is happening due to his policies. It is the indefinite 'surge' that is causing troops to be sent back sooner and delaying their return. Perhaps he was unnerved by the site of the VP watching from behind the rose bush! Who wouldn't be?

Does he really believe what he says? I presume that this is all pre-prepared and practised. Does he not question what he is saying? Does he realise he makes no sense?
