    Text: Bush's Statement on Rumsfeld

    By The Associated Press

    -- President Bush's statement on Friday in support of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld:

    Earlier today I spoke with Don Rumsfeld about ongoing military operations in the Global War on Terror. I reiterated my strong support for his leadership during this historic and challenging time for our Nation.

    The Department of Defense has been tasked with many difficult missions. Upon assuming office, I asked Don to transform the largest department in our government. That kind of change is hard, but our Nation must have a military that is fully prepared to confront the dangerous threats of the 21st century. Don and our military commanders have also been tasked to take the fight to the enemy abroad on multiple fronts.

    I have seen first-hand how Don relies upon our military commanders in the field and at the Pentagon to make decisions about how best to complete these missions. Secretary Rumsfeld's energetic and steady leadership is exactly what is needed at this critical period. He has my full support and deepest appreciation.

    George W. Bush

    Could it be that the bumpkin from Crawford, TX. doesn’t know both he and his Defence Secretary are both out-of-touch arrogant assholes? Yep - that’s it.

    You are going to have to clarify. I was under the impression that good leaders rely on those experienced people around them.

    That "bumpkin" is the President and when addressing his office, deserves respect. When he no longer in office, he is fair game, but until then when you address him, you address his office. Being a vet, you should understand this.

    I'd bet Money Darwins Friend is lying about his/her military service.

    You are right.

    Of course, Darwin, once again, feels that his opinion is the only one that is correct.
