This post and comment from Think Progress:

From today’s Social Security event in Galveston, Texas:

MR. BENTLEY: And we’re operating in central Iraq. I’ll be back there next week.

[Snip]

THE PRESIDENT: How many children you got?

MR. BENTLEY: We have two children. We have a four-year-old son named Patrick, and a three-month-old daughter named Elaine that I just got to meet for the first time.

THE PRESIDENT: Really?

MR. BENTLEY: Yes, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: No wonder you’re emotional. (Laughter.) That’s awesome.

MRS. BENTLEY: She was born two days after he deployed.

THE PRESIDENT: Yes, great.

Is this what it means to be a compassionate conservative?


  1. he’s like the boss in the movie Office Space.

    Hey, how’s it going? That’s great. Listen, I’m going to need you to go ahead and uh serve another tour in Iraq. So if you could just get over there as soon as you can that would be great. Okay? Super.

I loved this insight, emailed it to Stephanie Miller, and she has (at least twice) mentione the similarity on her show.

That's great. I have sirius, which she is on, but my hours in the car are in the mornings, so I listen to Alex Bennett and Al Franken. During the day. Can't seem to get into Jerry Springer though. That's for another post however.
