This is not a casual visitor or a friend. This is the Commander in Chief who made the decision for which the soldiers are now suffering the consequences. I would expect better after a visit to those soldiers who gave so much than to quip to get a laugh from the reporters. Perhaps some real sense that he appreciates the sacrifice these soldiers have made in other than a scripted speech. No pass here.
But how do we know they were even offended? Since when do we give a flying turd what the reporters think? And soldiers make a conscious choice to enlist in the US military. I'd feel a lot differently about Bush's hospital visits in general if these were drafted men and women.
