Mr Bush said he was aware of the anti-war sentiments of Cindy Sheehan and others who have joined her protest near his Texas ranch. "But whether it be here or in Washington or anywhere else, there's somebody who has got something to say to the President, that's part of the job," he said on Saturday. "And I think it's important for me to be thoughtful and sensitive to those who have got something to say. But I think it's also important for me to go on with my life, to keep a balanced life."Emphasis mine.
Mental note, while you may be the president of the United States, and work-life balance might be an issue, try not to raise that you're trying to get on with your life as the reason why you won't talk to a grieving mother.
Should have ended it with the "part of the job" - he obviously can't talk to every protester, but that last sentence just seems especially cold.
