You could have found families of soldiers who died on Normandy Beach who would have said that they regretted that their sons died for a bunch of goddam Europeans. So what?
were they any families? no the entire US supported the WW2 efforts esp after Pearl Harbour. you gotta explain what it is i seem to be missing!?
Dowd did mention the meeting:
The president met with her family two months after Casey's death. Capturing W.'s awkwardness in traversing the line between somber and joking, and his love of generic labels, Ms. Sheehan said that W. had referred to her as "Mom" throughout the meeting, and given her the sense that he did not know who her son was.
the LA times is far more influential thean the WSJ. i took a media in politics class. hell even the chicago Tribune and the Boston Globe are more influential than WSJ. i' not alking bout total amount of readers in which WSJ comes 2nd behind USA today i'm talking bout, influence.
Bush won because of values which is bullcrap to me because hey the economy is crap and people are dying in Iraq but we cant let two men kiss so we'll put the egocentric dumbass as president.
