Bush vs Webb....Sit down Jim
Bearing Drift has a great response to the Bush - Webb altercation that NLS has posted here. I have to agree that Bush smacked Webb into place with his reported response. The funny thing to me is the hero worship displayed in the comments about Webb wanting to slug the President. Of course we don't know if Webb really said that. Maybe the Sen elect will confirm that for us, but I am not holding my breath. Webb was asked a direct question, gave a distorted answer and got smacked down. Lesson learned.
This is not good news for Virginia. If the report is correct that Webb wanted to assault the President then I predict a lonesome term for Webb. His macho bullshit wont work in politics. He will stand alone and accomplish nothing as many have predicted.
"Webb confessed that he was so angered by this that he was tempted to slug the commander-in-chief, reported the source, but of course didn't."(LINK)
That sounds a lot like grade school to me. "I would a kicked his ass if...but..." Macho B/S at its best. The only thing left is to ask what stopped you Jim? Arms froze? Then this grade school story would be complete. Geeeesh. The WaPo has a decent article about this also. Webb is a loose cannon. I don't have a problem with that as long as he is productive. After reading Shear's article many have doubts and I do too.
