I saw this today on sivacracy.net:
George Bush took a 2 hour bike ride on Saturday, and when he got back, he was asked how he could go for a two hour bike ride when he doesn’t have time to meet with me, and he said: “I have to go on with my life.” (Austin Statesman, August 14) WHAT!!!!!????? He has to get on with his life!!! I am so offended by that statement. Every person, war fan, or not, who has had a child killed in this mistake of an occupation should be highly offended by that remark. Who does he think he is? I wish I could EVER be able to get on with my life. Getting on with my life means a life without my dear, sweet boy. Getting on with my life means learning to live with a pain that is so intense that sometimes I feel like throwing up, or screaming until I pass out from sorrow. I wish a little bike ride could help me get on with my life. …
I just wish George had as much courage in his entire body as Casey had in his little pinky, then he would meet with me. Crawford, Tx. is beautiful prairie land, but I could think of dozens of other places I would rather be right now. However, if George or anybody else thinks I am leaving before my mission is “accomplished” they have another think coming. I will stay the course. I will finish the mission. I will take no prisoners.
How could this country have ended up with such an ARROGANT, IGNORANT IMBECILE for a president! He can’t even take 15 minutes out of his busy exercise and brush clearing schedule, to meet with Mrs Sheehan. Bush, Cheney, and their whole gang should be impeached for their incredibly collosal studipity if not for the all the lies they have told and continue to tell to get this country into a totally unnecessary war! American troops are dying daily (1857 so far) so that this bozo can see himself as a “great wartime president”. This needs to stop.
