I do not envy our president. He is speaking to the troops, then meeting privately with the families of the soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice. Our president is a very honorable man (Clinton would only posture for the cameras, not condecend to talk to a family member - unless maybe an attractive widow). Still, to do this demonstrates the kind of integrity Pres. Bush has. I admire him, but today; I would not want to be him.

I believe what he said was more like "there is no finer sight than 12,000 U.S. Marines and Corpmen. Unless you happen to be a member of the Iraqi Republican guard".

**Amen, Fox is showing the opening prayer. **

Double Amen, C. :o)

I did the unthinkable and turned to CNN just to see if they were showing it. The reporter was talking over the prayer. Jerks.

President Bush is well loved and totally respected by our Military. So cool.

The exact quote was:

"There is no finer sight....no finer sight, than to see 12,000 United States Marines and corpsmen, unless you happen to be a member of the Iraqi Republican Guard"

OORAH!!!
