I have added this same comment to the second part of this cartoon, so to conserve time I'm going to add it again.

While I do not think Bush is the greatest president this country has ever had, he is certainly not the worst. There have been far more incompetent leaders of the United States such as Grant, Buchanan, and Carter. The facts speak for themselves. President Bush kept us safe from terrorist attacks for 7 years, when the majority of Americans thought we would be attacked again after 9/11.

The point I'm trying to make is that Bush was not a corrupt man, he was not cruel man and he was not a selfish man. He was a decent and good human being who really wasn't fit for the job and at times made foolhardy decisions which resulted in unfortunate consequences.

What the Far Left does not want to admit, even though they now it, is that Bush did something politicians have not done since the time of Reagan. He became a statesman, ruling by his convictions and what he believes in, even if it was unpopular. He enacted legislation that put him at odds with not only Democrats, but right-wingers in his own party. At the end of the day, he is still a flawed, imperfect person, but he is, and will always be a patriot and a man who sacrificed his immediate legacy for the safety of this country.

In 20-30 years, I think history will show Bush as a decisive president who had to make tough decisions that were necessary to preserve the integrity of America.

We were attacked again after 9/11. Just not as catastrophic (2000+ deaths)

I am going to give my two cents on this.

This picture is pretty good, but it just has one problem: It shouldn't be Iraq alone throwing the balls, it should be the whole fucking world.

I was watching the news when they played this. I haven't laughed that hard in quite some time. ^_^

Excellent piece.

I think it's sick that the Americans commenting here are praising al-Zaidi for what he did. President Bush is the face of the United States and represents Americans whether we like him or not.

The President of the United States, like the American flag, is a symbol of my country and what it stands for. When someone takes it upon oneself to deface it, I take serious offense to it. Americans who praise such actions are not fit to be Americans. It sickens me to see such flagrant disrespect by the American people toward the face of their country.

This is SICK, SICK SICK!!!

Freedom of speech, mother fucker, do you know it? If someone wants to give a guy props for telling us he wants us to gtfo already, let him. It actually seems like a little bit of free speech coming through in Iraq. You think he'd still be alive if he threw it at Saddam? It may be a sign of disrespect in their country but in our country it's another skit on Saturday Night Live and maybe an ethical joke or two.

In the eyes of comedy, no one is safe.

Not even the blind.

Motherfucker? :rofl:

I never said no one couldn't do that. My problem is Americans supporting an attempt to physically hurt their president; he may not be a popular president, but he represents me whether or not I agree with his actions. There are other sensible ways to voice disapproval than by throwing something with an intent to harm. What if an actual weapon had been thrown? What then? It may be comedy to you and 98% of everyone else, but I don't take that kind of disrespect so lightly.
