"Hard work" defined by Bush, dead soldier's mother

Cindy Sheehan lost her son in Iraq, and ridiculed Bush for saying that it's 'hard work' comforting the widow of a soldier who's been killed in Iraq. "Hard work is seeing your son's murder on CNN one Sunday evening while you're enjoying the last supper you'll ever truly enjoy again," said Sheehan. "Hard work is having three military officers come to your house a few hours later to confirm the aforementioned murder of your son, your first-born, your kind and gentle sweet baby."
