See the video here. It’s a New York Times video with the actual sound. You can see a news editted version from MSNBC below. I think anyone who reads my blog knows what I think of Bush, but this is not the right way to send a message. It’s completely useless actually and disrespectful. I gotta admit, Bush has pretty good reflexes. The guy was pretty close and that first shoe came at him pretty fast and he managed to dodge it. Not bad. It’s pretty shocking to see the most powerful man in the world get shoes thrown at him. The Bush legacy… ha.
Bill Clinton got impeached for lying about the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal. Bush lied to the whole country and the world to justify launching a costly, poorly planned, preemptive, and ILLEGAL war. The US invaded a sovereign nation that posed no threat, in violation of domestic and international law and the UN charter. Regardless of everything else this war criminal has done, why hasn’t he been impeached yet? It’s shameful that neither Democratic leadership nor mainstream media are willing to pay more attention to this. This isn’t about politics, it’s a matter of duty to this country – Bush AND Cheney need to be held accountable for their crimes.
