Don't throw a shoe
I cannot stop watching the President Bush incident! just a few days ago. Having a shoe thrown at you is very disrespectful and no man/woman deserves that treatment; especially when you are representing the most powerful nation in the world. It's because of President Bush that an Iraqi reporter have the freedom to throw a show at someone. Imagine this happen when Saddam was in charge. This guy probably would have had his whole neighborhood tortured and torched!
Bush Shoe Attached
It’s humiliating, it’s degrading, it’s taking a man in front of the world and reducing him to a ducking coward; it’s inappropriate for any head of state to have to face a flying shoe (and in the middle eastern culture, it’s VERY degrading…it’s like having someone spit on your face in public).
I felt so bad for him and what a terrible way to mark the last days of President Bush's presidency. Maybe I feel extra-bad for him because I see him still being bombarded by the media and the world. I believe in the years to come, History will see President Bush in a different light. He is coming back to Texas after January 20th and he had been quoted as saying “I will leave the presidency with my head held high.” He should because he had made our family safer.
