Heroes Ride

Whatever you may think of his politics or policies, George W. Bush loves the men and women of our military. He started an event he calls the W100. It's a 100K mountain bike ride with some of our wounded warriors. You can find the rest of the videos here. The videos are inspiring, especially the interviews. Take a minute to watch some of them and remember the awesome debt we owe these men and women.

Riding with the heroes indeed.


h/t to Quilly at Justbarkingmad for turning me on to this.

I think the worry is that the Warriors would take the current incumbent around the dry creek and he might have some bike trouble. "Not to worry, Sir. We'll send some help back as soon as we get home...."

If they did the heroes ride on a golf course Obama would be there! Well, if not busy on Oprah, or ESPN, or on another vacation.

Maddmedic. It's too hoi polloi doncha know!

Ed. You know that conversation would at least have taken place. "Think anyone would miss him?"

Gene. That's the crux of it. What doesn't elevate him is beneath him.
