Here we go again, this time off to the wilds of Vermont with our two traveling horses. But before we go, I just want to comment on the wacky mom who’s stalking the President at his Crawford Ranch.
I don’t doubt that her heart was shattered by the death of her son while he was doing his tour of duty in Iraq. I can’t even begin to imagine the anguish she felt and the loss she continues to feel.
But enough is enough!
Cindy Sheehan, the bereaving mother has literally accused President George W Bush of being a liar, a murderer, and a TERRORIST who is personally responsible for her son’s death.
And worse: She’s fingered the President for making war for the benefit of his oil buddies.
But she still wants to have a face to face meeting with him so that he can tell her why her son died.
Other than to say that she is at best misguided, and at the least nuts, I’ll deal with the stupidity of her claims and demands on my radio broadcast.
Cindy Sheehan’s son was not drafted into the US military. He, like every other American soldier, male or female, are in whatever branch of the United States military because they volunteered.
And to assume that one will not see combat or be put into harm’s way when in the military is to assume far too much.
Sheehan’s son did what he signed-up to do.
He served his nation under the command of the President of the United States, and like other soldiers, men and women, he lost his life in the call of duty.
For Cindy Sheehan and those who are egging her on, what she is doing is besmirching the memory of her son and the son’s and daughters of almost 2,000 other Americans who fell and died fighting under their country’s flag.
Not to forget the thousands of wounded and permanently maimed.
I don’t believe that people should simply accept the word of a President, nor do I think it is wrong to oppose the war in Iraq if that is what you really believe.
But I do believe that there is a definite line that divides what is real and what is contrived. And what is fair speech and what is hate speech.
And in both circumstances, Cindy Sheehan has crossed the line.
