Bush: Um-hmm. So you're asking me a question about Iraq?

King: Yes. What do you think?

Bush: Well, you know, that's -- I don't feel like I'm an expert. I -- you know, I'm not. And I think it's a very complicated situation. And, obviously, I respect the men and women who are over there sacrificing their lives for us. But, you know, I don't feel qualified to talk about it.
