Jim Webb, George Bush and the war on Iraq


I listened to the Forum on KQED this morning. Today’s guest is Bill Press, former chair of the California Democratic Party. It is a good show, and in particular, I’d like to share 2 things I heard with you.

  • Senator-elect Jim Webb attended a reception last week for new members of Congress at the White House. He is a Republican-turned-Democrat, and feverishly opposed to the Iraq War. He is a Vietnam veteran and his son is a Marine in Iraq. Bush, seeing Webb across the room, walked over to him and had the following conversation:

Bush: “How’s your boy?”

Webb: “I’d like to get them out of Iraq."

Bush: “That’s not what I asked you. How’s your boy?"

Webb: “That’s between me and my boy."

Some thinks Webb is disrespectful of president, while other thinks Webb doesn’t suck up to power. What do you think?
