Mission Accomplished

Flying shoes be damned. This is the send-off for President George W. Bush that you will not see on any hysterical cable news programme.

(Via Insty)

Thank you so very much for keeping us safe these 7 years. All of you.

  • Hiya Victoria -

    Thank you for posting that You Tube video.

    NBC had on 4 reviewers of the shoe-throwing incident. One suggested that President Bush will actually be glad to not be president anymore.

    While I have long said that I will respect the office to which Barack Obama has been elected, I will be most interested in seeing how he handles the myriad of issues (notably the economy) in the immediate future.

    I think that President Bush and his cabinet have done as much as one could or would expect of a lame duck.

    I concur with you, my blog friend. We have been save the last 7 years. I pray that we continue to be.

    Peggy :)

  • Big thanks too to the 13th PAD (Public Affairs Division) for getting us this vid (credits visible if you freeze the video after about a second-- modest just like POTUS).

  • Notice what a good time everyone is having, including the President?

    I have family in the military and they love Bush because he understands what they want to do -- bring peace and justice, not make war.

  • Hey guys (and howdy to Donna B!) thanks for the comments.

    The most important component of our national sovereignty is a respected military.

    It does my heart very good to see these soldiers, of both sexes, fêting a man who they know has got their back.

    The question is, do we have theirs?

    I think so. At least, those of us who responded here.

  • You know we are on opposite sides of politics of Bush praise, so it should come as no shock that I respectfully disagree with the idea that "Bush has kept us safe".
    The absence of a foreign attack on US soil has little to do with who was President.
    al-Qaeda made their point on 9/11 after al.

    The object was never to overthrow America, or destroy America (and this is the part that most people miss). Their object is to make us destroy ourselves- by eroding our liberty in the fear of something grander, by reacting in ways that create avenues with which it is easier to recruit future human shrapnel, by becoming what they preach we are anyway.

    I supported removing Saddam, but I believe the Bush administration acted cynically in the way they sold the invasion to us, and the horrible way the war was managed in the first phase of the war.

    Do I think they believed what they were saying, sure, but they also manipulated the argument in an effort to drown any dissent and play upon the fears of the body politic.

    In short they listened only to people that affirmed their suspicion and rejected any evidence to the contrary of their 'case'.

    Bush is the classic example of the type of person who sees things as they want them to be, rather than what they really are.

    In the last half of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st, we've really only had 2 pragmatists as President (Kennedy and George H.W. Bush), I'm hopeful that Obama will be the third, and all evidence thus far he is.

    The more dangerous the world becomes the more calm, rational, calculation is needed to see the 'big picture', to challenge conventional wisdom, to understand proportional response.

    Military response is only one tool in the bag and it should be jealously guarded as it uses the most important thing we have- the blood and sacrifice of our service persons.
