Expectations

Another Great Moment In Parsing, brought to you by our Commander-In-Chief:

President Bush said Thursday he can’t recall when he learned that Army Ranger Pat Tillman died by friendly fire, not at the hands of the enemy in Afghanistan, as the Pentagon originally claimed.

”I can’t give you the precise moment, but obviously the minute I heard that the facts that most people believed were true were not true, that I expect there to be a full investigation and get to the bottom of it,” Bush said in response to a question at a news conference.

Well, that’s an interesting choice of words. I can only assume that Dubya didn’t order an investigation because he just “expected” one to happen on its own.

And then there’s this gem:

”I can understand why Pat Tillman’s family, you know, has got significant emotions. A man they loved and respected was killed while he was serving his country,” Bush said.

”I always admired the fact that a person who was relatively comfortable in life would be willing to take off one uniform and put on another to defend America….”

Spoken by someone “relatively comfortable in life” who was not willing to put on a uniform and “defend” America in a war he supported, surrounded by a legion of “relatively comfortable” defenders who are almost all just as unwilling to don a uniform as he was, none of whom he has ever urged to serve.It may be admirable, but it is certainly not expected.
