Put down the controller, turn off the TV, and go outside and say something. And clean up your room!
It looks like Laura finally put her foot down and made President XBox turn off Grand Theft Auto: Sadr City and go out and face the world…four days later.
President Bush said Wednesday said that the $35 million in aid pledged by the United States to aid victims of the earthquake-spawned tsunamis that battered southern Asia is “only the beginning” and announced the formation of an international coalition to coordinate relief efforts.
Saying that he and his wife, Laura, were â€œsaddened by the terrible loss of lifeâ€ in the disaster, Bush pledged a multifaceted response from the United States that goes far beyond the $35 million initially pledged.
The news conference was Bushâ€™s first public statement since the tsunami struck on Sunday, and came after critics faulted the president for not interrupting his vacation at his Crawford ranch to talk in person about the disaster.
He had previously issued several statements expressing his condolences and promising to help the affected nations.
