Lets the hell out! Say what you want but the MF iraqi has the audacity to throw a shoe at our President symbolizing what and how much we spent on them to allow that Fuck head to be free!—————————————————————————————————
Oh so he should be thanking Bush on behalf of the widows, orphans, etc.
You are one twisted individual. I wonder how you’d feel if this nation were invaded and millions were killed and the nation devastated as a result of lies and manipulation. What would you like to happen to the leader of THAT nation?
FACT: Iraq had more functional freedom, stability, security, tolerance of one another under Saddam Hussein. We killed more Iraqis than Hussein ever did, may he rot in hell.
FACT: Our amount of spending for what you like to call “Iraqi freedom” is due to cost-plus, no-bid contracts and the Bush Administration being complete ignoramuses. You speak as if our spending had been put to good, efficient use.

Don’t forget to mail your shoe to the war-criminal currently occupying the White House, after you have plastered the soles with dog crap.

Muntadar al-Zaidi, is probably a very rational, caring, thoughtful, individual that is fed up! I feel his pain. He is my hero - and can I offer to get him some more shoes!!!!
Of course we now know that W. has great reflexes!

Interesting idea about the ‘shoe in’ to ‘shoe out’ the Bush.
Another good thing to do would be to send and e-mail to Muntadar al-Zaidi’s employer in support of his cause.

Yes, just think if Sadamm was still in power and someone threw a shoe at him where would the thrower be now? I guess that guy can’t figure out what to do with all this freedom but if he were to take a moment and think he should be tanking Bush for his FREEDOM that WE have provided him.

Those shoes should be in a museum.

“SHOE” HIM OUT!
A poster on another thread had a GREAT idea, one that I have already acted upon. He suggested that each of us mail a shoe to Bush at the White House. I added that we should send an email to everyone on our own email lists suggesting they do the same, and hopefully get this action “viral.”
Can you imagine of thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, even millions of people sent shoes?! True, it is only a symbolic gesture. But it would create an amazing stir, and become part of Bush’s fast-growing negative legacy.
I hope you will join in this easy, fun and cheap way to express your feelings, and add even more shame to Bush’s legacy.

This was the act of a desperate, principled man, who tangibly expressed the anger and disgust of millions.
It is the REAL Bush Presidential Memorial, that in his two terms he has left the respect for the office of President of the U.S., and her citizens in ashes.
Bush has left a legacy of hate.
