Description:
prompted by the discussion in "the cafe" .... most moms there thought it was funny on some level. the most opposed mom said that the shoe thrower should get "life in prison wo parole!" Also important to know... When the man threw the shoe he said something about "this is from the window of the orphanages in iraq " or something like that.... so from the children who were made orphans by bush's choice to go to war with iraq/from the people who were casualities of war's children.

    i don't think it is right for any reporter to throw his shoes at anyone. How would people feel if it was done to BO? Or someone else they liked? It isn't right, under any circumstance.

    There's nothing funny about it, just shows the true mentality of this so-called reporter. I think he needs to make a career change if anything and maybe take some anger management classes.

    it's a cultural thing, and a damn sight less disrespectful than DROPPING BOMBS on someone and destroying their infrastructure and killing their innocent civilians.

    just so everyone understand, the shoe and the foot are majorly insults in certain parts of the world, you will see people protesting my hitting someone's picture with their shoe as if to say you are so low that i step on you, you are no better than what is stuck on the bottom of my shoe, i agree with autodidact, i dont think bush was hurt at all so it is pretty funny to me, but really pretty sad when i think of all those poor kids who dont have parents because of bush's bombing... so a shoe is the very least that he deserves to get thrown at him...

    I don't think it's funny, but I certainly understand why it happened and don't blame the guy for his frustrations.

    Julianjordan, GOD forbid that ever happen! They'd be ready to throw that person in jail,and throw the key away if someone lobbed a shoe at the almighty,can-d0-no-wrong BO! That would be an unforgiveable, cardinal sin! But, it's ok to do it to Pres. Bush,and people laugh. Just wait, in a few years, they'll be throwing worse than that at Obama. God help us all!

    I totally agree with p.p! People don't look at the Great things Pres. Bush has done for our country and everything that is wrong right now has not been his fault. He may not have made some great decisions but neither did Bill Clinton. I do not care for BO but you won't hear me disrespecting our president.
