I saw that this morning, pretty quick reaction for a shrub.

Wonder what happened to the guy who threw the shoes?  A year ago and he'd probably already be beaten half to death in some Syrian prison.  Now?  Who knows?

Thousands took to the streets Monday, chanting, "Bush, Bush, listen well: Two shoes on your head."

Surely that sounds better in Iraqi dialect than it does in English.

Come on, kids, it's a protest...you can do better than that!

Several people descended on the man immediately after, wrestling him to the ground, and it took a minute or two for security agents to clear the crowd and start hauling him out. As they dragged him off, he was moaning and screaming as if in pain. Later, a large blood trail could be seen on the carpet where he was dragged out of the room.


Ooops.

Quote
Bush told reporters later that he didn't think "you can take one guy throwing shoes and say this represents a broad movement in Iraq. You can try to do that if you want but I don't think that would be accurate.


That's true, Shrub.  But what do you make of ...

Quote
Iraqis demand release of shoe-hurling journalist.  Thousands of Iraqis took to the streets Monday to demand the release of a reporter who threw his shoes at President George W. Bush in anger at U.S. policies, as support for the act and the journalist flowed in from across the Arab world.

Supposedly, throwing your shoe at someone is like the worst Iraqi insult.  I guess it does lose something in translation.  The second worst insult is to screw that person's goat. 

Here in America, we all know what the worst insult is.  But he's leaving us in just a little over a month...

The shoe has been used in political protest in other ways.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabotage

Origin
Sabotage is a term of French origin coined during the railway strike of 1910, when workers destroyed the wooden shoes, or sabots, that held rails in place, thus impeding the morning commute.[citation needed] An alternate definition claims the word to be older by almost a century, the times of Industrial Revolution. It is said that powered looms could be damaged by angry or disgruntled workers throwing their wooden shoes or clogs (known in French as sabots, hence the term Sabotage) into the machinery, effectively clogging the machinery. This is often referenced as one of the first inklings of the Luddite Movement. However, this etymology is highly suspect and no wooden shoe sabotage is known to have been reported from the time of the word's origin. [1] Others contend that the word comes from the slang name for people living in rural areas who wore wooden shoes after city dwellers had begun wearing leather shoes; when employers wanted strikebreakers they would import 'sabots'/rural workers to replace the strikers. Not used to machine-driven labor the 'sabots' worked poorly and slowly. The strikers would be called back to work (with demands won) and, could win demands on the job by working like their country cousins - the sabots. Thus 'sabotage'.

I don't care if it were Clinton, Bush, Obama or Reagan.....I'm not crazy about the idea of some scumbag attempting to harm the President of the United States.  Democrat or Republican.

Thankfully they have zero athletic ability over there.

That's like saying you don't care for someone attempting to harm the POTUS (regardless of party) by flipping them the bird.

Or throwing a jelly doughnut at him.

What they needed was a second shoe thrower.  Then they could have gotten him in a shoe-cross-fire.  If they timed it right when Shrub ducked the first shoe he would have caught one right in the kisser from the second thrower by which time the original thrower would have launched another.

If they'd have really wanted to make a statement though, they could have gone for shock-and-awe and tossed in several pairs of heavy steel-toed work boots all at the same time.  Sure, they may have taken out a press secretary and other random staffers.  But, you know, collateral damage and such is hard to avoid!  And besides, they were asking for it by standing nearby.

Valid point, Oat, but the flipside is, you invade my country, displace over 2 million citizens, kill somewhere between 25 times as many people as were killed in 9/11 and possibly up to 250 times as many, all on bullshit pretenses, I'd say you'd be lucky to have the extent of my personal displeasure with your policies be a fucking shoe toss.  

I would probably be a little more reluctant to throw a jelly doughnut because, well, it is a jelly doughnut after all... MMMmmmmmmrrrmrmm, jelly doughnuts...

I look at it as you still had an animal attempting to harm the POTUS and he had enough time to do so. I really don't care if it were a jelly doughnut or a shoe. What scares me is the lack of timing by the secret service.

Eitherway, I'm just anxious to get our boys and girls home and out of that region of the world.  They can kill each other off for all I care.

Would that just be the Iraqis?  People who throw shoes at the US President?  Anyone who's Arab?  Muslims?  Anyone not a US citizen? 

Just curious to know, since it is the season of the coming of our Lord, and He could fit some of your criteria....

Yeah, the Secret Service effed up badly.

But what I find really curious is that you continue to mistake this as an act of harm, rather than expression of moral outrage.  If he had wanted to harm the president, I would think it more efficacious to use something other than footware.  Call me crazy. 

I also find it curious that you refer to this person as "an animal," not in a strict biological sense, but in the sense of some superiority reminiscent of those lynchin' whites who used to see blacks as animals.  You've stated that they can kill each other, they (?) are "animals" (twice in this thread), and you offer the curious epithet that they piss in the sand.  OK, so you're a Steelers fan.  And a xenophobe.  That's fine, you is what you is.

I for one don't care whether anyone here is liberal, conservative, full of love and joy, or full of hatred and bigotry.  And I'm not going to tell you what you should believe.   Free country and all.  I happen to find the policies of our standing President distasteful, but I would never condone a serious attempt on his life.  But I think you're using that idea, of an attack on the POTUS, as some sort of justification of a sick worldview that I can't get behind. 

If you met Jesus on the street you'd probably think he was a terrorist.  Just my 2 cents, and believe me, I'm done on the soapbox.  Last thing I feel like doing is getting into another protracted discussion on politics and morals, because frankly, I'm exhausted from it all, and I'd rather concentrate on some serious pigskin entertainment heading into the playoffs.  I enjoy reading the comments of this community for the most part.  Just not yours, when you get on your soapbox.

But like I said, free country.

Gunning a shoe at one's head seems like an act of harm to me.  Call me crazy.

I would not consider myself a xenophobe, but you can make that assumption if you would like.  Free country and all.  I do not dislike or fear people from Italy.  I went there, had a blast, loved the people.  I do not dislike or fear people from Mexico.  I went there, had a blast, loved the people.  I do not dislike or fear people from Germany.  I went there, had a blast, loved the people.  Same goes for Canada, France and England.

I have Jewish friends, catholic friends and friends of all different shapes, sizes and colors.  I do have a problem with muslim extremists or people who attempt to hurt/kill the POTUS. 

I'll get off my soapbox now even though I avoid the political forum for the most part. 

Take care and Merry Christmas....errr, I mean Happy Holidays Smiley
