Dan Froomkin - Bush's Battlefield Envy - washingtonpost.com: "President Bush wishes that he could be alongside the troops in Iraq -- except that he's too old.Umm. For some reason I remember this one war, yeah the same war that Bush says we should have kept fighting. I remember that this same man could have fought alongside the troops then. But he preferred drinking and womanizing. But now he is a "war president."
At least that's what he reportedly told a blogger embedded with U.S. troops in Iraq. In the first session of its kind, Bush spent almost an hour on Friday talking with 10 so-called "milbloggers," including two who participated by video conference from a military base outside Baghdad.
" N.Z. Bear," one of the eight guests sitting around a table with Bush at the White House, reported: "Responding to one of the bloggers in Iraq he expressed envy that they could be there, and said he'd like to be there but 'One, I'm too old to be out there, and two, they would notice me.'"
