Ducking With a Smile

Did you see the video of the reporter in Iraq throwing his shoes at President Bush? Classy, eh?

We had the news on last night, for some unknown reason since we rarely watch the crap, and I was cracking up watching Bush grinning and ducking. What a great sense of humor he has! And then his interview where he said it was pretty much the same as having people wave without all five fingers. hahahaha

What pissed me off though was the news reporting. Shocking right?

THIS is the story? Really?!? A guy throws his shoes at our President in Iraq and that's the big news story of his trip?

Not the fact that millions have been rescued from murderous thugs and tyranny? If this guy had thrown his shoes at Saddam Hussein he'd either be shot on the spot or fed through a wood chipper. He wouldn't be arrested and questioned...and I'm guessing he'll be released soon. There would have been not a single protest on his behalf. No questions would be asked. He'd be dead.

Does this guy not grasp the irony of this? President Bush led our country and our fighting men and women, risking their lives, to free him and his country. They are FREE because of Bush.

Those troops who fought to free the people of Iraq from tyranny don't seem to hate their leader. Get a load of the cheers! Did the news play those videos? Of course not. He looks like a rock star there. Signing autographs, people crushing in to shake his hand...nobody wants to see that.

I just find the irony amusing. God bless the troops and President Bush who worked to give this moron journalist (I guess that's redundant) the right to throw his shoes.

Well, we should have never gone to Iraq, but we should have made a parking lot out of Afghanistan. Just saying.

I thought the president handled this very, very well.

Have a terrific day. :)
