Bush said He had a message [again?] for Al Qaeda and other terrorists seeking to impose their violence on innocent civilians: "Don't bet on American politics forcing my hand because it's not going to happen."

I was listening to John King describe Bush's visit to Baghdad this morning. It was the usual "I got to go and it was cool man really cool" sort of thing.

I mean, really- some of this stuff just writes itself. From the ever delectable Fox News, one of the spawn of Phelps and a daily Bobblehead get touchy feely:
â€œWhat would you do if you had a son in the military?â€ an outraged Banderas asked. â€œWould you damn him to hell as well? Because youâ€™re gonna join him there if you had a son!â€Read below the fold...
