Default Bush ignores Military Mom!

so theres this lady Cindy Sheehan whos camping outside Bushes Crawford ranch as she wants to talk to the President and ask him why her son had to die and Bush is ignoring her!! WTF?!

This is from CBS news.

Quote:
The mother of a fallen U.S. soldier who is holding a roadside peace vigil near President Bush's ranch shares the same grief as relatives mourning the deaths of Ohio Marines, yet their views about the war differ.

"I'm angry. I want the troops home," Cindy Sheehan, 48, of Vacaville, Calif., who staged a protest that she vowed on Sunday to continue until she can personally ask Bush: "Why did you kill my son? What did my son die for?"

Jim Boskovitch, father of slain Cpl. Jeffery Boskovitch, 25, of North Royalton, Ohio, is supporting the U.S. military action in Iraq.

"I firmly believe, and I would echo my son's feeling on this, it is very, very important for our country to remain steadfast and complete the mission that they set out to accomplish," Boskovitch told ABC on Sunday.

Boskovitch is among several families mourning Ohio Marines who suffered heavy losses in three attacks starting July 28, when two were killed in a gun battle. On Monday, five were killed in an ambush. Nine were killed Wednesday when an armored vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb.

Rosemary Palmer, the mother of Lance Cpl. Edward Schroeder, 23, another Ohio Marine killed in Iraq, sided more with Sheehan. If the United States continues its current course in Iraq, the death toll of U.S. troops, now at more than 1,820, will only grow, she told ABC.

"We either have to have more people there to do the job and better equipment, or we have to leave — one or the other," she said.

Boskovitch said his son, Jeff, "felt extremely, extremely strongly about the Iraqi people and our government deciding to go over there."

"His commander in chief needed him to be there, as well as those fellow soldiers, to help those people, help that country to be able to stand on its own and to liberate those people," Boskovitch told ABC.

Sheehan was among grieving military families who met with Bush in June 2004 at Fort Lewis, near Seattle, Wash. That was just two months after her son, Casey, was killed in Sadr City, Iraq, on April 4, 2004.

Since then, she said, various government and independent commission reports have disputed the Bush administration's claims that Saddam Hussein had mass-killing chemical and biological weapons — a main justification for the March 2003 invasion.

"I was still in shock then," Sheehan said in a telephone interview.

"All of those reports prove my son died needlessly," said Sheehan. "This proved that every reason George Bush gave us for going to war was wrong."

Sheehan, who formed a group called Gold Star Families For Peace and has spoken out against the war across the nation, talked for about 45 minutes on Saturday with Steve Hadley, Bush's national security adviser, and Joe Hagin, deputy White House chief of staff, who went out to hear her concerns.

Appreciative of their attention, yet undaunted, Sheehan said she planned to continue her protest along the road during Bush's stay through the end of the month.

"If he doesn't come out and talk to me in Crawford, I'll follow him to D.C.," she said. "I'll camp on his lawn in D.C. until he has the courtesy and the integrity and the compassion to talk to somebody whose life he has ruined."
Now other families are joining her:
Quote:

Default Re: Bush ignores Military Mom!

why would Bush acknowledge her? Her son signed up to defend his Country and along with 1800 young/old soldiers, has now lost his life. It is very unfortunate. However, she is one of many mothers who no longer have a son or daughter.

Bush can't take care of every single protest against him and his government. Anyways, I feel bad for her and all the other parents but someone has to do the dirty work and US families are paying for it.

I think she is an extremist or is being used by extremists, you know, extremists are the group of people you claim to abhor.

Default Re: Bush ignores Military Mom!

she was informed that beginningThursday her and her band of supporters would be considered 'national security risks. Why Thursday when on Monday she's not? Well on Thurs, Condeleeza Rice and Donald Rumsfield arrive to chat with the president. and better yet on Fri theres a FUNDRAISER for all his cronies.
Wat she wants is more than an actual meeting, she wants the president to acknowledge that soldiers are dying. Did you know that Bush has never been to a soldiers funeral and he calls himself the war president?

Default Re: Bush ignores Military Mom!

So what? The second Bush commits to one funeral, he will accused of not showing up to other funerals. If he shows up to a Hispanic soldier's funeral, then he will be called racist for not attending a black funeral.

He is a war President and he has done a phenomenal job so far. I hate that soldiers are dying, but every single one of those soldiers know why they are there. The US is doing a good thing (unlike most people think). The are like a school principal. Without a principal in the world, all hell would break loose. Bush can't attend funerals or anything like that. He is the President and the President is busy.

bush is to busy in going to fundraisers and having five week long vacations where he gets back to his 'Texas roots' (note he was born and lived most of his life in New England) to attend a funeral. he couldnt even attend a memorial service for hundreds of soldiers in OHio and they were of all colors.

How do you know she voted for Bush, are you psychic? Maybe she did not vote at all. Maybe the Mum is not an extremist but her friends there are certainly, of the left. As for Nimitz, Bush is now a Texan even though he was not born and brought up there. He migrated there during his adult like and prefectly integrated himself. Nimitz, the right is right.

You said probably voted for Bush. the word probably is stronger than might and so you almost assume that she voted for Bush.
Nimitz, Bush does not want to talk with extremists because that's what they are. What possibly will come of good if he does talk ith her which I can assure you he won't. Oh I'll contribute don't worry and Rducky I will come back again
