Jim Webb Will Give State of the Union Response

Jim Webb is one of the fighting Dems who reportedly got in a verbal scuffle with Bush regarding his son who is a soldier in Iraq.

"How's your boy?" Webb, in an interview Wednesday, recalled Mr. Bush asking during the reception two weeks ago.

"I told him I'd like to get them out of Iraq," Webb said.

"That's not what I asked. How's your boy?" the president replied, according to Webb.

At that point, Webb said, Mr. Bush got a response similar to what reporters and others who had asked Webb about Lance Cpl. Jimmy Webb, 24, have received since the young man left for Iraq around Labor Day: "I told him that was between my boy and me."
Webb himself was a career military man and Reagan's former Secretary of the Navy.

Perfect choice to deliver the speech rebutting the boy king.
