Laura Bush Supports the Draft to Spread Good News about Iraq?

First Lady Laura Bush recently lamented the negative news coverage on Iraq and its impact on the nation’s psyche. In an MSNBC interview Mrs. Bush said:

"I do know that there are a lot of good things that are happening that aren't covered. And I think that the drumbeat in the country from the media, from the only way people know what is happening unless they happened to have a loved one deployed there, is discouraging."

Did Laura imply more that only good news comes from soldiers in theater telling their families back home? Well, then to increase the good news the prescription is more soldiers! To ensure a broad demographic representation, those soldiers should come from all American households. Reinstating the draft would bring about the good news Laura recommends. Hail the First Lady!

As 70% of Americans now disapprove of the Iraq War, the Bush team needs something to reverse the two year old slide in support. I can’t imagine the pomp and circumstance over Donald Rumsfeld’s resignation helped in the least. If “the finest Secretary of Defense our nation has ever had" achieved this, what would the worst have done?

With no children in Iraq, our nation’s leader had this to say:

"I must tell you, I'm sleeping a lot better than people would assume”-President George W. Bush

He must not watch the news…
