Webb & Bush - Duking it Out at the White House?!?


Speaker-elect Nancy Peloski hasn't even taken the gavel and already there is animus between a certain newly elected Senate Democrat and President George 'Dubya' Bush.

The Hill reports of a testy exchange between Sen.-elect Jim Webb and our 'presidente."
At a private reception held at the White House with newly elected lawmakers shortly after the election, Bush asked Webb how his son, a Marine lance corporal serving in Iraq, was doing.

Webb responded that he really wanted to see his son brought back home, said a person who heard about the exchange from Webb.

Hmmm, guess Webb wasn't drinking any of the president's kool-aid with happy-talk and insincere reflection about how important the mission in Iraq is and just how very proud Bush is of our soldiers.

“I didn’t ask you that, I asked how he’s doing,” Bush retorted, according to the
source.
Hit me with a feather; and excuse the living hell out of me!

Guess the "Decider" is feeling a little grouchy now that he knows the jig is up; fun and games with Dick are coming to end in January.

Comments:
I notice Raising Kaine and Raw Story have the same lede as Howling Latina.

I supposed the exchange can only be characterized as "testy," thus we all came up with the same lede.

But...I do believe my post was up before theirs. I just checked recent news on google for Jim Webb:)
 
Interesting how different politics yield very different perspectives on this exchange.

Nice job on being first. But NLS will get all the hits and comments.
 
I put mine up around 8pm, under the title "Oh, so THAT'S what was on the menu!" in ref. to a post I did about the party weeks ago. (I've since updated with the title, so you can't get to the original post but the title is on the lefty blogs scroll) Then I immediately tried to get it on Kos, and had to delete bc it was there when I was done. Then, I go over to RK and it's top page, been there for a few. I realize later Ben has it up.

:) Kind funny.

The entire blogosphere is just still loving Jim Webb news.
 
Actually, I was wrong. It is still there, sorry.
 
Congrats on getting it first.


George Bush is still an asshole.
 
Appears as if the national media is following in our lead. I've seen about 10 stories about this already today...
 
Look, I told you all that Jim Webb was, is and will always be Jerk...

Well, Virginia there is a Santa Claus... You asked for it, You got it...

I am embarassed for him to be my Senator...
