Bush Avoids Sheehan Like He Owes Her Child Support
President can run, but he cannot hide
by Michael Ascot
CRAWFORD, TX -- (OfficialWire) -- 08/13/05 -- It's shameful really. This president is a coward. He likes to talk the big talk, like "Bring 'em on...", "We'll hunt 'em down..." and the like, but actually, George W. Bush is a coward with nothing much to say.
Evidence of the expanding yellow streak down the backside of America's Commander-in-Chief is his continued refusal to meet with Cindy Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed in Sadr City, Iraq, on April 4, 2004. Sheehan and her supporters are maintaining a roadside encampment—Camp Casey—close to the president's Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford.
Sheehan, 48, traveled to the 'Western White House' one week ago after Bush said that fallen U.S. troops had died for a 'noble cause' and that the mission must be completed.
Sheehan wants to talk to the president, to ask him some questions.
"I want to ask the president, 'Why did you kill my son? What did my son die for?" Sheehan told reporters. "[Last week], you said my son died for a noble cause' and I want to ask him what that noble cause is?"
But Bush won't meet with Sheehan.
What's the president afraid of? I mean, I'm sure if he asks, Cindy will let him bring Laura or even Uncle Dick along for moral support.
