    Dear Mrs Bush,

    May I be so bold as to remind you that Germany did not take part in the assassination of foreign leaders such as Saddam Hussein?

    May I be so bold once again as to remind you that the last time a POTUS was killed, it did not happen in Europe but down in Texas?

    Have a nice retirement.

    Yours trully.
    Your comment here is motivated by pure emotionalism and has nothing to do with common sense.

    Saddam's execution(As a result of a trial, not the history revisionism you're promoting here) and JFK's assassination have next to nothing to do with Laura's fear of deliberate poisoning here.

    I don't even understand what your line of thought was and what did you expect to gain by bringing up such issues.

    Exactly. Laura Bush didn't say who, she just said where and what.

    Like you were told, you should keep your ignorance to yourself.

    Lincoln was murdered by an assassins bullet.

    Didn't happen in Texas.

    McKinley was murdered by an assassin's bullet.

    Didn't happen in Texas.

    Garfield was murdered by an assassin's bullet.

    Didn't happen in Texas.

    Kennedy was killed in Dallas, and you guessed lucky that Dallas is in Texas.

    If you suspected that you WERE poisoned while visiting the US, I certainly wouldn't begrudge you for mentioning it.

    Why are you so offended, anyway? It's not like she blamed anyone. You Euros are so sensitive sometimes.

    Anyway, I'd still prefer for you to stuff it. Laura's a sweet lady.

    In other words, trolling.
    And from all places you've decided to troll in the breaking news section.
    Dangerous - but your call.

    I'll let the moderation team handle this. Au revoir.

    And logic dictates that because it never happened doesn't mean it couldn't or for that matter, that poison wasn't used in this particular case. Secondly, who says this was an assassination attempt? I didn't see that particular charge by the OP quotation. And who says, if they were poisoned, that it was a French person who did it? Couldn't it have been almost anyone who was at this conference - which I might recall, had many different country's represented?

    The point is, just because something hasn't happened historically, doesn't mean it won't happen or in this case, did. Do they conveniently fail to teach logic in European schools or is this a difficult concept and I'm just unaware... ?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Oh the troll call, how nice!

    Why do you have a go at me for reporting this?

    Why don't you question Laura Bush's motivation instead?
