George Bush gave a speech at an invitation-only 4th of July event in West Virginia. Amid all the hollow rhetoric --
After the speech, Bush was returning to the White House to watch fireworks and celebrate his 61st birthday on Friday.
"I told her to fire up the grill," Bush said he told first lady Laura Bush, who did not attend.
One wonders how many in his audience (of West Virginia Air National Guard families) actually believe that Laura will be grilling on the 4th.
