Mother Of Soldier Killed In Iraq Heckles Laura Bush

http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/09/17/bus...ter/index.html

"defiant trespass" that makes me wonder - what exactly are the legal requirements for making an arrest in this situation

My sympathies to Mrs Niederer

Now will you mushy-headed liberals understand the need for loyalty oaths?

So his death is her fault?

Most likely he was an adult who could make his own decisions. Regardless of what their parents might feel about the war and their tragic childrens' deaths, I'm quite certain they are incredibly proud of their children, as they have every right to be.

The first lady was there representing what the woman was protesting against.

Whether you sympathise with the woman or not is another thing.

Is there an implication that this women should be treated differently because of her son?

Union Thugs do Edwards work

Democrat supporters make 3-year old cry

Quote:
A West Virginia man said yesterday that Democrats stole his family's Bush-Cheney campaign signs at an event featuring Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. John Edwards.
Okay, this was mostly sarcastic. This campaign will be filled with unpleasant little stories of our general incivility.

I am in full sympathy with the woman who lost a son and spoke out at the rally.

Laura Bush could have expressed her sympathy, thanked the woman for her son's bravery, even asked her to come up front and given her a hug. She didn't. Why not? Oh...that wasn't in the script Karl Rove wrote for her before the event!

Sorry for the bit of sarcasm there, but I just can't believe that people can't understand the need to speak out for a woman who has gone through the worst experience a mother can go through--the death of a child. She is obviously grieving. And the Bush Regime, by sending this country into war under false pretenses, created the situation that killed her son.

While the 3-year-old is an innocent victim, her dad and possibly her brother aren't.

But I'm sure the child's tears about having her sign ripped up were just as real as those shed by the mom whose son was killed.

But her son made a choice to fight there. All of the soldiers and marines I know are fully supportive of Bush and this war. It doesn't mean it's right, but these guys believe 110% in what they're doing. One of the guys I know was driving a truck that was hit with a bomb and he had head and arm injuries from the shrapnel. They sent him home b/c he can hardly move his arm. He's not blaming anyone...in fact, he sorta feels like a failure b/c he didn't complete his mission. He wants to go back. Is this anyone else's choice but his?

Now blogs are sources of "truth" ??

I am sure you can find a blog to say whatever you want on any issue.

Because she wasn't looking for sympathy. She was there to make a political point. If it were not the mother of the deceased soldier, we would say that they were exploiting his death.
