You give it your best shot on the words


The Virginia Tech slaughter has given Bush the opportunity to use the phrase “a loving God” over and over. And to get himself interviewed over and over talking about how he, himself, W, the Decider, was dealing with the process of trying to comfort the victims and survivors. “You give it your best shot on the words,” he told ABC with his usual deft choice of metaphors. Asked if there were policy implications, he said that we should immediately invade Iran, just in case they were behind it. No, sorry, he said, “Now’s not the time to do the debate until we’re absolutely certain about what happened and after we help people get over their grieving.” Because Bush never rushes into any decision until he’s absolutely certain about the facts.
