"AMERICA HAS a president, not a king. But just like royalty, the nation's commander in chief can keep his distance from the common man or woman."
Cindy Sheehan, the California mother of a son who died in Iraq, is camped out in Crawford, Texas, trying to get a face-to-face meeting with the vacationing President Bush. The Vacaville woman wants to tell the president he should pull American troops out of Iraq. Her son, Casey, was killed at age 24 in the Sadr City section of Baghdad on April 4, 2004
This pride of the president of the United States is going to turn to ashes. Now he has the pride and the glory, but it’s going to turn to ashes. He’s cocky, he’s really cocky. Americans are always gung-ho for war. Always. What hypocrisy. What self-righteousness. What confidence in the arm of the flesh. What a terrible mess he’s getting the world into.
Bush is a liar and a hypocrite that he flip-flops with things so often. The question they need to put to the American public is: “Is that oil really worth American blood and the lives of our boys? Is it worth fighting and dying for just to keep gasoline prices down so you can go for more joy rides?
Well, as far as I’m concerned, it’s not worth it. I can’t understand how any man, much less the president of the United States, could think about sending 250,000 men into war. But war is hell. God is absolutely against it.
