    This is probably Bush's greatest unifying moment since the invasion of Afghanistan. Today, all of the US comes together as Americans to make fun of Arabs throwing shoes
    Yes! he's in 6th grade playing a fun game of dodgeball. I think he was disappointed the guy ran out of ammo.

    Some in the Arab world (especially arab media) are making a big deal out of this. Bush actually saved this man by stopping his secret service detail from springing into action. Bush gave them a hand signal to stay put when one started to approach him, and no doubt they would have gone after the journalist given a few more seconds. You have to give Bush credit for keeping cool, and later acknowledging the man's free speech rights.

    Bush handled it very well, IMO.

    Even though I'm sure I'll get flack from Bush-haters for saying it, I think Bush is compassionate enough to understand that the guy had emotional reasons for the outburst and I think that is part of what caused him to handle it so well.

    I'm hearing stories that this man was tortured at the hands of Americans. Can anyone confirm this? There must be a reason why he was so raged.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Bush have compassion? I thought he was a cold, heartless, uncaring, evil war monger with no compulsion for sending people to their deaths and expresses joy at the rising death count. Wow. He actually has a heart.... Amazing.

    My local radio news that reported that it came from Iraqi TV. Of course it's far from being confirmed, and I don't want to make any rash judgements. Having said that, this man was raged and wanted to make a statement.

    I read that he belongs to the Shiite pro Iranian group JAM whose members in parliament all voted against the recent military agreement with the US.

    Was likely educated by Hezbollah in Lebanon.

    Was kidnaped by the militia and released after 2 days unharmed.

    But none of this was official, just what a blogger had found out.
