The Reliable Source reports President Bush made that comment when he met with families of the fallen back in 2003. You may be wondering what would prompt such an oddly inappropriate comment.
It turns out, when George met with families at Fort Carson, Colo., he presented these coins to them.
That's right. He gives them a self-aggrandizing token as his way of recognizing their horrific loss and all he can do is warn them not to cash in their newfound treasure! What a piece of work.
That was my original thought. After actually checking ebay, I think he may have been confessing to them, in a sort of assbackwards way, that their sacrifice, like this trinket, would not get them anything of value.
