George Bush has no sense of irony

This comment from Bush's recent news conference really struck me:
BUSH: The bottom line is this: Congress' failure to fund our troops on the front lines will mean that some of our military families could wait longer for their loved ones to return from the front lines, and others could see their loved ones headed back to the war sooner than they need to. That is unacceptable to me, and I believe it is unacceptable to the American people.

In completely unrelated news:
Stretched army sends troops back to Iraq

WASHINGTON - For just the second time since the war began, the Army is sending large units back to Iraq without giving them at least a year at home, defense officials said Monday. The move signaled how stretched the U.S. fighting force has become.

A combat brigade from New York and a Texas headquarters unit will return to Iraq this summer in order to maintain through August the military buildup President Bush announced earlier this year.
Is George Bush even aware of the consequences of his own policy?

This was the same news conference where George Bush admonished Congressional Democrats for going on vacation (just before leaving for Crawford, himself)
