W had to face off with a not-too-happy tee-shirt-wearing audience member in Pennsylvania:
Manheim Realtor Gerry Beane was the first to speak and said, "from man-to-man, taxpayer to president," he believes the United States needs to disengage from Iraq.
Beane sat next to Sherry Wolfe, who wore a pink T-shirt emblazoned with the words, "GEORGE BUSH YOUR WAR KILLED MY FRIEND'S SON."
More than 3,800 U.S. soldiers have died in Iraq since 2003, including the person referred to on Wolfe's T-shirt, Brent Adams of Mountville.
"Like you, I want them home," Bush said.
But by then, his bubble had effectively been popped. Next:
A 10th-grader asked Bush why he wouldn't sit down with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to negotiate a settlement of ongoing rhetorical hostilities.
