Bush Comes Under Fire In Iraq

President Bush went on a secret trip to Iraq as a farewell tour and he was attacked while there. A reporter from one of those backwards countries there called Bush a dog and threw his shoes at the president. Bush ducked the first shoe and the second sailed past his head. The president waved off a Secret Service agent who was moving in to remove the president.

The soles of shoes are the nastiest of insults in that part of the world. The shoes were intended to be the nastiest of insults but only demonstrated that the guy throwing them is a sissy who could not hit a target from 12 feet away. Probably explains why they prefer bomb vests.

There were a few comments from the left wing moonbats indicating that it was too bad the guy missed, he should have thrown an IED, and he should have put a hand grenade in the shoe. There is no restraint when it comes to the hatred of the left toward George Bush. Perhpas the left sides with the reporter because they too are a bunch of sissies who could not hit anything.

Now I know that if this had happened to Barack Obama there would be similar comments from the fringe of the right. There are fanatics on both sides (though the fanaticism of the left seems to run across the entire spectrum) but the reaction would be much different in this case.

The left would read similar comments about their messiah and they would start whining about how mean the right is and how all they think about is killing people. Terry Bisson, the science fiction writer who goes by Thinking Meat, is always ready to point out how un-Christian like any right winger who talks about killing is. Discuss killing someone who desperately needs it and Bisson is immediately there to discuss how deranged the right is. He is not alone as many of the loons on the left do the same thing.

But where are these paragons of virtue in this instance? Have any of them called the moonbats who wished the attack had been more lethal any of the names they love to spew at the right?

Of course not. They have different sets of rules for the wackos on their side.

While I believe there are many people in this world that should be removed from it in short order (like people on death row and terrorists) I would never want to see the president of my country harmed regardless of which party he represents.

It was interesting to see the video. The president has pretty good reflexes.

Too bad this did not happen to Hillary. Then she would be telling the truth when she said she came under fire. Well, at least more of a truth than what she told in the past.

    It’s a little early in the week for a straw man isn’t it? Funny, I don’t see you guys racing to the keyboard every time some fanatical conservative says something kooky or does something crazy.

      I am pretty sure I said that there would be those kinds if it were reversed. However, the left is full of the wackos who want this kind of thing. You might recall (though I doubt it because liberals have selective memory) that I was all over the kooks who were supposedly trying to assassinate Obama when he gave his Roman Empire Speech.

    More media coverage of that than talking about how Obama got his Illinois Senate seat?

    This new blog will start hitting liberals heavy soon:

    That is how the West interprets it, but to the Easterners, I suspect, this makes us look weak?

    What would have happened if someone did this to Putin?
