I’m sure this has already been pointed out a million times by now, one more time won’t hurt.
If it had been Saddam Hussein at the podium yesterday who the Iraqi reporter (I understood the reporter to actually be from Egypt) threw a shoe at, that reporter would be dead now.
I wasn’t going to post on this at all but I came across this posting over at DUmmie FUnnies in which he highlights pieces of a thread at the Democratic Underground mock Bush and praise the reporter who threw the shoe.
I found their responses to be more than interesting and demonstrative of their [the left] typical hatred.
The left’s hatred of Bush is not exactly a secret, but the degree of hatred still sometimes shocks me.
A good percentage of the messages in the thread are vulgar to the point where I would not feel comfortable posting them here. Many lament that Bush was not actually hit by either of the shoes. Most of them are just seething with vile hatred.
I am not pleased that Barack Obama is to be our president, I am opposed to him in whole and his agenda in whole, still were he to experience something similar I would not take pleasure in it and would not be wishing ill upon him.
These people are simply sickening.
A sampling from the Democratic Underground follows:
And how many people would actually get to read anything an Iraqi journalist wrote, I applaud this “Journalist” for what he did, its just a shame Shrub didn’t get his teeth knocked out!!
He didn’t get the memo he was s’pose to throw flowers! At least Bush got the greeting he deserved.
Couldn’t happen 2 a better person
Somebody get that guy a brick!
Too bad Shrub didn’t get his teeth knocked out, that guys a true hero!
I want to put it on tape and give it out as a Christmas gift
