And where is the outrage? http://thehill.com/thehill/export/TheHill/News/UndertheDome/112906.html At a private reception held at the White House with newly elected lawmakers shortly after the election, Bush asked Webb how his son, a Marine lance corporal serving in Iraq, was doing. Webb responded that he really wanted to see his son brought back home, said a person who heard about the exchange from Webb. âI didnât ask you that, I asked how heâs doing,â Bush retorted, according to the source. 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 didnât. Itâs safe to say, however, that Bush and Webb wonât be taking any overseas trips together anytime soon.
