Jenna Bush Dodges Military Service Question
Posted on Oct 11, 2007
How does the Bush family, including First Twin Jenna Bush, handle all the critical media coverage about George W.? According to Jenna, they “don’t watch too much television.” And, when asked by Time reporter Carolyn Sayre why she isn’t serving in Iraq, she insisted, ” ... It’s not even a practical question.” Oh.
Time via The Huffington Post:
If the war in Iraq is so noble, why aren’t you and your sister serving our country there?
Jenna Bush: I understand that point, but there are many ways to serve our country, and I think my skills are better suited for teaching and representing the U.S. in Latin America through unicef. I respect the men and women of our country who are over there fighting. It is an unbelievably selfless thing to do. But if people really thought about it, they would know it’s not even a practical question.
