    But how could anyone have predicted that a shoe would have been thrown at him? So I am interested in why you think one shoe is enough to get the Secret Service into trouble. Talk to me, chief.

    I still can't believe that a Secret Service guard didn't jump in front of the President right after the first shoe was thrown? It completely baffles me.

    I just need to give George Bush a round of applause for his ducking both times. Wow.

    Imagine the secret service agent telling his grandkids about this.

    Grampa: You know, way back in the second Bush administration, I took one for the president!
    Kid: Really? Hand gun? Rifle?
    Gramma: No, it was a shoe.

    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.

    Re: Shoes thrown at Bush on Iraq trip

    You know, it feels kind of good to see Democrats, Republicans, Liberals, Conservatives, and moderates come together and finally agree on something. Who knows, maybe in the future, after all the hubris of the last decade, historians just might write that it was a shoe that brought a divided America back together.

    And yes, I agree with Christina. I wish there WAS a grenade in that shoe. Bush would have had the cockiness to throw it back and blow that mother****er up.

    Damn, I am beginning to like the crap out of Bush now. LOL.

    If he was able to throw a shoe, he could've been able to do a load of other things. I'm not saying they absolutely should've been able to stop the first shoe. Sometimes you just can't stop things. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't be upset that you DIDN'T stop it.

    The second one was the worse offender however.

    Still, this guy wasn't some trained hit man or anything. No one can tell me there weren't body clues for this. There are a lot of tells that someone is planning on doing something like this that should be visable prior to it happening of the SS was looking out and watching the crowd. Yes, it was a press core but it was in a foreign country that is less than perfectly peaceful...I don't think they should be taking anything for granted there.

    Its not a huge thing, espicially the first shoe, but it is disconcerting to say the least. But yes, the 2nd shoe is the worse offender by far, as it shows slow reaction on the part of the SS in both apprehending the man, removing the President from the situation, or moving between the man and the President.

    Yes, just like that Clint Eastwood movie, a Secret Service agent has to be dedicated enough to put himself between a shoe and the president. LOL.

    I bet they where just standing there thinking.... "FAIL@!!@! ROFL." Then they seen him reaching for the second one and thought. "Oh ****..."

    Because after the first one misses he looks like he is done assulting for a split second. Then he quickly grabs the second one off. The only way this could have even been close to an issue though is if the man was a trained assassin lying in wait with ceramic throwing knives though or something. You cannot anticipate crazy shoe huckin assholes. You got as much of a chance predicting a shoe chucker as you do some asshole that randomly throws soda on you while your walkin. But no enemies or crazy others where able to bring any deadly weapons in soooooooo, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

    Iraqis using their freedom i see.

    Iraq TV demands release of Bush shoe attacker

    An Iraqi television station on Monday demanded the immediate release of one of its journalists who caused a furore when he hurled shoes at visiting US President George W. Bush.

    Muntazer al-Zaidi jumped up as Bush was holding a press conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki on Sunday, shouted "It is the farewell kiss, you dog" and threw two shoes at the US leader.

    Bush ducked and the first shoe hit the American and Iraqi flags behind the two leaders, while the second was off target.
    Al-Baghdadia television demands that the Iraqi authorities immediately release their stringer Muntadhar al-Zaidi, in line with the democracy and freedom of expression that the American authorities promised the Iraqi people," it said in a statement.
    Any measures against Muntazer will be considered the acts of a dictatorial regime," it added
