CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) _ President Bush says between going to war and raising twins, he’d choose war.

Bush’s visit to West Virginia last week included a chat with Bob Kiss, Democratic speaker of the West Virginia House of Delegates. While they hail from different parties, they found plenty to talk about _ although while both have twins, Kiss’ 5-week-old twin boys aren’t quite old enough to cause much trouble.

Kill told Bush that if he wasn’t doing anything the next morning, he could come by for their 3 a.m. feeding. Kiss said Bush joked, ``I’ve been to war. I’ve raised twins. If I had a choice, I’d rather go to war.″

Bush’s 19-year-old twin daughters have had trouble with the law since their father became president.

Barbara Bush pleaded no contest in June to a charge of minor in possession of alcohol. She and her twin sister, Jenna, were ticketed after their visit to a Mexican restaurant in Austin in May. Police said Jenna tried to use someone else’s ID to buy liquor; a judge convicted her of underage drinking in an unrelated April incident.
