Unbelievable. Just Unbelievable.
President Bush, noting that lots of people want to talk to the president and "it's also important for me to go on with my life," on Saturday defended his decision not to meet with the grieving mom of a soldier killed in Iraq. Bush said he is aware of the anti-war sentiments of Cindy Sheehan and others who have joined her protest near the Bush ranch. "But whether it be here or in Washington or anywhere else, there's somebody who has got something to say to the president, that's part of the job," Bush said on the ranch. "And I think it's important for me to be thoughtful and sensitive to those who have got something to say." "But," he added, "I think it's also important for me to go on with my life, to keep a balanced life." The comments came prior to a bike ride on the ranch with journalists and aides. ... "I think the people want the president to be in a position to make good, crisp decisions and to stay healthy," he said when asked about bike riding while a grieving mom wanted to speak with him. "And part of my being is to be outside exercising."Message for George Walker Bush: Casey Sheehan can't "go on with his life", can't "keep a balanced life", can't "stay healthy". Because he's DEAD. Those statements are beyond insensitive. Only a selfish, heartless, soulless person would say those words in the face of a women who wants to talk to him because her son is dead.
