      Wonder what would have happened if journalist threw a shoe at Saddam or any other Middle East leader … can you say off with his head.

      Looks like the foreign media is just as appreciative as US MSM when it comes to the free speech rights they have been afforded.

      Please excuse my French, but that Journalist can go F himself! And I hope he has been abused…there goes his career.

      Pretty good reflexes there for GWB, I was impressed with how he missed that first shoe. And what was UP with the Secret Service?? Slow response time there, Guys….if that had been a gun instead of a shoe- Dubya could have been assasinated!

      I don’t care what anyone says about George W. Bush, I still like him and I think he lead our Nation through one of the most challenging times. He is still our President, and IMO he handled the entire incident with grace.

      I thought that Bush reacted in a very good and profesional way.

      Can you imagine the outrage if this had happened to Mr. Obama?

      Red, you beat me to it. That’s what The Wall Street Journal pointed out in an editorial yesterday: Suppose this guy had tried that on Saddam Hussein?

      The other thing that isn’t being talked about … I’ve read that the guy eventually was wrestled to the floor by other Iraqi ‘journalists,’ not the Secret Service guards who were there and were supposed to be doing their job.

      I wonder how long it will be before this guy gets ‘celebrity’ status on U.S. TV programs?

      #2 You go girl! We think a lot alike of most issues.

      I agree with you that President Bush handled it with class. I think he has done a good job during his 8 years. He’s had a tough two terms and has been bashed & blamed for everything & anything the dems can think of to smear his name. He has handled it very well.

      Good Job Mr. Bush

      God Bless

      Gotta say, I’m stunned by the woefully passive response by the Secret Service in that incident. Videos of it have been viewed by millions around the world, and one wonders if it will inspire some group to craft an assassination plot against current or next POTUS.

      I can’t imagine Obambi seeing that video and feeling secure with the SS bunch that were “protecting” Bush that day. Gotta wonder if they were all Dems on that shift….
