. . . Priceless
You just can't make this stuff up:
Bush was also asked by Lehrer why he was not willing to ask more Americans to sacrifice something, given the importance he has attached to the struggle in Iraq.
"I think a lot of people are in this fight," Bush replied. "I mean, they -- they sacrifice peace of mind when they see the terrible images of violence on TV every night. I mean, we got a fantastic economy here in the United States, but yet, when you think about the psychology of the country, it is -- it is somewhat down because of this war."
On the instability in Iraq, Bush said:
"I don't quite view it as the broken egg; I view it as the cracked egg... that -- where we still have a chance to move beyond the broken egg."
