He really didn't say that, did he?

The President, in reference to Cindy Sheehan:

"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 ... I think the people want the president to be in a position to make good, crisp decisions and to stay healthy. And part of my being is to be outside exercising. So I'm mindful of what goes on around me. On the other hand, I'm also mindful that I've got a life to live and will do so."

Sometimes, it's really best just to say nothing at all. Saying "I've got a life to live and will do so" when confronted with a grieving mother is just crass and stupid. This president is no great orator, but I never expected him to say something some completely insensitive and self-centered. Sheesh.
