269. It's too bad they weren't bullets. That first one would have hit him right in the forehead if it had more speed.

You had better cross your fingers that the next attack won't be with a bullet. I''m beginning to think that the real terrorists are here in the US. Some of you are preaching peace, yet you are applauding a Muslin who attempted to assualt our President. Maybe they have little respect for our country because so many of you have shown no respect. I personally don't give a rat's a$$ what they think of us. If they stop fearing us, we are going to go down. Big time.

It would of been funnier if a rubber penis was thrown. Too bad this now sets an atmosphere for the next incomming president. We may see a chicken wing flying next time.

I have to laugh at half of you that clearly are Obama supporters. You love to use foul language to prove just how
big of idiots you are. You all need a size 11 thrown at your heads and maybe it would knock some sense into you.
How any of you think that a president.........any president deserves this..........you are as crazy as a loon. I don't like
Obama but if this happened to him I would be upset too. You all make a joke of it but YOU are the ones bringing
this country down. BREAKING NEWS........we've had crappy politicians for years and years. You people do more to
hurt this country than anything else. Half of you probably are getting government handouts or are in debt up to your
eyes and blame the government for this. There is no more personal responsibility in this country. Blame it all on
someone else (whoever is president). What a bunch of babies!! Since you are on this website you can see daily
what problems democrats have because most of hollywood is democrat. A bunch of druggies, boozers and whores.
What a nice selection of role models for the children. Maybe you should rethink some of your ideas.

GOD BLESS AMERICA and if you think it is such a crappy country leave and do the rest of us a favor. GOD BLESS
OUR SOLDIERS!! As far as DARFUR goes............well just another way of Hollywood making themselves seem like
they really care about anyone other then themselves. If these people really cared they wouldn't ask the general
public for support who makes a fraction of what they haul in for their movies. If Hollywood really cared about
Darfur they have enough money to save every person in that country themselves and still be left with millions. So
think about it.....................................

stupid women & the religious right    

The fact that this diss was pretty mundane in our culture is what many find humorous.. and personally I am glad the guy missed, as poor Bush has definitely had enough blows to the brain area throughout his life.

That said, I can't help but notice the ridiculous number of posters, on both sides of the partisan line, that want to call names and lay blame on a story that has nothing to do with American politics.. I am no fan of the way Bush has handled his time in office, and I am a supporter of the President Elect, but Bush IS our President, and we have good reason to be upset that some random Iraqi reporter had the audacity to throw ANYTHING at our President when he was over there to commend both our troops and theirs for their dedication and determination to fight to better the country. It was a pathetic stunt, and in no way should that reporter be cheered for such conduct.

And back to American politics (which is OBVIOUSLY the more entertaining subject) what the hell does ANY of this have to do with Barack Obama? Seriously? Some of you self-righteous conservatives really need to take a good look at yourselves and figure out what it is that compels you to sling insults at the man BEFORE he does a damn thing for or against you. Personally, despite the fact that everyone knew Bush was stupid before he was elected, I didn't see anyone calling him out until 2 years into the war.. when it became FACT that he and his Administration acted on faulty intelligence and invaded a country with no discernible WMDs. Also, I think that we all learned alot from that kind of shoot now ask questions later attitude, so those of you comparing Obama's intent to hit the country that ACTUALLY harbors the group that hit us with 9/11 to Iraq are insanely stupid to do so.

To Hugs #111,
I am a Republican and I for one am willing to give credit where credit is due. If Obama does change things for the better, I like everyone else will be happy he was elected. I'm willing to give him a chance. What other choice do we have. We must stand behind our president whoever he or she might be and be united as a country for without that we are nothing. Besides the President doesn't get to make the rules there are to many checks and balances in place.

Knock It Off    

In Arab culture, Throwing a shoe at someone is like throwing sh*t at them. The bottom of a shoe is where the sh*t collects. That's where George Bush and his office have been for past 8 years. What a stooge.

who has the facts? ME    

The irony here is that the man did what Bush and our poor dead 4,000 soldiers gave him the right to do...liberty and freedom. So why is everyone bitching at the guy. We should be happy that he now has the right to do that - Mission Accomplished!! He wasn't trying to kill Bush, so calm down. He was just making a protest. Isn't that still a right in a free and democratic land?? Would we rather he be dragged into the street and hanged? Isn't that what Saddam would have done?? No - supposedly, that is why we are stuck in this assinine war, so good for you buddy!!
