Why is Bush afraid of this woman?


Cindy Sheehan is the mother of Casey Sheehan, a U.S. soldier killed in Iraq.

She's holed up just down the road from Bush's ranch in Crawford.  She's unarmed, nonviolent, and carrying little but questions.  She simply agrees with the 61% of Americans who disapprove of Bush's handling of the war.  All she's doing is demanding accountability from her elected president. From Bob Harris, because Sheehan's story matters.

Bush should be very afraid; when the ordinary people of this country realize that they've been betrayed in the name of protecting them, they are likely to be very unforgiving. That's a side effect of bandying about the notion of "evil" in politics.

In case you haven't heard Bush already met with Ms Sheehan. Now the left wing, anti-American organizations like moveon.org have gotten ahold of her and are using her for their politcal gain. How shameful that these groups and the democrat party are using this woman and her slain son.

Wasn't that the meeting where he called her "Mom" and didn't seem to know Casey Sheehan's name? Guess he is too busy resting and exercising to deal with matters of life and death.

It's a magnificent irony that the Smirking murderer has been stopped in his tracks by a grieving mother, and that she was the only person in America who could do it.
