On April 6th, White House spokesman Scott McClellan said President George W. Bush is mourning the life of each of the U.S. troops killed in Iraq." But President Bush has not attended the funeral of a single soldier killed in Iraq since the beginning of the war over a year ago.
To suggest the only way one is to show grief and respect for those brave men and women who have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan is to show up at the funerals is crazy.
Why is it that the media does not report that the president is often visiting wounded soldiers in hospitals? Did FDR, Ikem JFK, LBJ, and Nixon attend all the funerals of soldiers during WWII and Vietnam? I don't know, but I doubt it.
When you hear/read this claim remember that it is an attack on the president and an attempt to show he does not care. The reality is he does care.
