The office of the President is to be Respected! I don't care who holds it. When our President goes overseas and someone like this disrespectes him. They should be puinshed,or held accountable. This is not right! He is the Leader of the Free World!

If someone is going to throw shoes, throw them my way, I totally need some new Nike's. A size 9 would do nicely.

Carriss, you say that your husband was over there an nothing has changed!! he watched his fellow commrades get blown up? guess what sweeetie, right wrong or indifferent your husband and all his friends stould up before God and Country to say that "I will defend this country NO MATTER WHAT" so you an all the other bitching morons can say and do whatever it is you want!!! your husband and friends have a great deal of pride and honor for what they did and have done!! so think about that next time you start shooting your mounth off! because all the crap you spout off is just a slap in the face of your husband for the service he has povided this country!!!

The reason he threw his shoe is in the Iraqi culture it is viewed as an extreme form of disrespect to hit someone with the bottom of your shoe. it may seem ridiculous to you but to them it is a very crude way to disrespect a a person. do you remember when bahgdad fell the statue of saddam was toppled everyone was taking off their shoes a hitting the statue in the face? that is why. just thought i would offer an explanation as to why he threw shoes.....

Ain't it fun having someone to blame for all the world's ills? Tsunami? We know whose fault it is. Hunger in Africa?...guess who again. Anybody want this job? Your first name gets to be...Dirty, and your last name...well you know. Now that we have a democrat in the big chair, all the problems will be solved. You people are religious extremists! You have blind faith in a MAN....This is a man we're talking about. Heaven help us.

Obama will fix our country's problems, but that's no reason to hate George, he tries.

Hey Carriss, I have been through a divorce because of the so called "Deployment Syndrome" Guess what, my ex knew I was in the Army and knew I would DIE for my country. If you can't handle the fact you husband believes in freedom and it's cost. I will use your words "SHUT THE F@#K UP" and move on.

George Bush has 0 respect anywhere in the world and 80% of Americans think he is a dumb ass. The Iraqi people have good reason to hate G.W....too bad the guy missed. What is also funny is that Dana Perino got a black eye when they tried to arrest the shoe thrower.
