WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush on Friday made Christmas Eve telephone calls to U.S. troops in Iraq to thank them for their sacrifice following a deadly suicide bombing at a U.S. base.
Bush called 10 troops, including six in Iraq, "to express his gratitude for their service and sacrifice and to wish them all a merry Christmas and happy holidays," White House spokesman Ken Lisaius said.
Bush made the calls from the Camp David presidential retreat.

Wow, ya called 10 guys while you're sittin' there, kickin' back at Camp David. Could ya' spare the time? Christmas is hard work. Did ya' break a sweat makin' those 10 phone calls, or did somebody actually dial the fucking phone for ya' too? What a miserable, incompetent fucking failure.
