    Re: Shoes thrown at Bush on Iraq trip

    President Bush's reaction to this situation was first class.

    First, he was able to dodge the shoes with considerable adeptness. Then, he was able to shrug it off with a casual, slightly comical remark, showing it didn't shake him at all.

    I have more than my share of disagreements with the President, but I give him an A for this quiz grade.

    He should have put a grenade in it and wiped the smug look off that pricks face - especially when he joked about it afterward, claiming it was 'amusing'.

    What sort of cruel mother****er finds kidnap, torture, and death amusing? That man was kidnapped and tortured. He went through unspeakable hells, his friends and family have been killed, and all Bush can say is that he was 'amused'?

    **** I hate your President, America. He makes me sick to my stomach.

    And this kind of post makes ME sick to MY stomach, supporting someone launching an attack on the president of the United States and wishing there was a granade in the show (perhaps there would have been were it not for security.)

    As for Bush's reaction, it was highly appropriate to the situation and what he knew at the time. It wasn't Bush or the US who kidnapped anyone in Iraq, it was the insurgents who claim to be fighting for the Iraqi people.

    I don't know what country you are from, and frankly I don't wish to know as it would cause me to look at those people with a little less respect than I would currently regard them with.

    You know I don't respect anyone who wishes harm to the President. I'm done with you.

    I dislike most of everything that Bush has done, yet I do not wish any harm to him. Your post is an example of why liberals get a bad rap and frankly disgusts me beyond reason.

    Wishing that a guy had killed our president goes beyond tasteless, beyond politics, and I dare to say is one of the most unpatriotic comments I have read in a long time.

    Whoa Overreaction much?

    What he found amusing was the throwing of shoes, not the fact that the man went through all that awful stuff.

    I don't like Bush much either, but in this instance I think he handled himself pretty well. I'm just surprised the man had time to throw the other shoe. Where the heck was the Secret Service??

    I bet the shoe thrower is a Sunni. He misses his dear Saddam.

    This is awesome.


    Before we liberated Iraq, that man would not be able to do such a thing without being shot or hung......
