Bush Sees Parallels with St. Louis Cardinals
President Bush sees some parallels between himself and the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals, Ken Herman reports.
“They say in baseball, you know, in order to become the World Series champ you can’t have losing streaks of over two or three games. This club had losing streaks of one eight-game streak, another eight-game losing streak and a seven-game losing streak,” Bush said, “which really speaks to the character of the baseball team, doesn’t it?”
“When you’re on one of those losing streaks, it’s easy to get down and to forget, you know, the goal,” said Bush, who periodically reminds the nation of his goals in Iraq.
Of course, slumps that last three years are pretty hard to overcome.
