What did Bush mean when he said:
"I mean a child that doesn't have a parent to read to that child or that doesn't see that when the child is hurting to have a parent and help out or neither parent there enough to pick the kid up and dust him off and send him back into the game at school or whatever, that kid has a disadvantage."

What he's trying to say is that a kid needs a parent because if he doesn't have a parent than nobody is there to pick him up or a parent can pick him up and the kid needs a parent for support to support him and the child is disadvantaged without a support or parent to pick him up and then give him support to the parent or something. Understand?

Bush just meant that when a kid doesn't have parents to care for that kid and help him when he's hurt he or she is worse off than the other kids who have parents.
