Cindy Sheehan, Tool

Tool of the left that is. Her own words cause questions as to her sudden recent motivational reversal. Or perhaps just a magical reversal of opinion and a re-canting of her ORIGINAL words after she suddenly hooked up with leftists.

I'm ripping this straight from Q and O because it needs to be constantly repeated since it is a fact that has been utterly lacking in every debate about Cindy Sheehan that I have seen so far. Larry King failed to note it as has Bill O'Reilly and John Gibson, and The Daily News, and Los Angeles local news. Despite having been on the blogs for a couple of days. If the moron rabid right-wingers can find this so quickly why can't the enlighted journalists at all newspapers and news stations find it in their quest for social justice, world peace, and keeping minorities from thinking for themselves.

McQ writes: "In the first meeting, this was Sheehan's reaction:

'We have a lot of respect for the office of the president, and I have a new respect for him because he was sincere and he didn't have to take the time to meet with us,' Pat said.

Sincerity was something Cindy had hoped to find in the meeting. Shortly after Casey died, Bush sent the family a form letter expressing his condolences, and Cindy said she felt it was an impersonal gesture.

'I now know he's sincere about wanting freedom for the Iraqis,' Cindy said after their meeting. 'I know he's sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he's a man of faith.'

The meeting didn't last long, but in their time with Bush, Cindy spoke about Casey and asked the president to make her son's sacrifice count for something. They also spoke of their faith.

While meeting with Bush, as well as Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, was an honor, it was almost a tangent benefit of the trip. The Sheehans said they enjoyed meeting the other families of fallen soldiers, sharing stories, contact information, grief and support.

For some, grief was still visceral and raw, while for others it had melted into the background of their lives, the pain as common as breathing. Cindy said she saw her reflection in the troubled eyes of each.

'It's hard to lose a son,' she said. 'But we (all) lost a son in the Iraqi war.'

The trip had one benefit that none of the Sheehans expected.

For a moment, life returned to the way it was before Casey died. They laughed, joked and bickered playfully as they briefly toured Seattle.

For the first time in 11 weeks, they felt whole again.

'That was the gift the president gave us, the gift of happiness, of being together,' Cindy said.


As McQ says, "What could possibly be accomplished by a second meeting?"

Cindy Sheehan has become the poster child for the far left and is being supported by the likes of code pink. She has shamefully used her son's death and disrespected her own son's motivations and beliefs in this. It's disgusting.
(added) You know, if I had died during my time in the service and my mother pulled this kind of stunt I'd be pissed, ashamed and embarassed. It would not be her place to use my death to belittle my support for my country and to push her agenda. Most especially if it ran counter to my own beliefs.

IRAQ THE MODEL has a Message for Cindy Sheehan. Definitely a good and important read.

Okay, turns out Bill O'Reilly already knows about Cindy Sheehan's deception regarding meeting with The President.

I left the following comment at Cindy Sheehan contact organization (afterdowningstreet), I don't know if it will be posted at all, since it looks like they review all comments before allowing them to be posted and if mine is found to be offensive it will never see the light of day there.
The President has finally met with Cindy Sheehan and her husband. What did they have to say about the meeting?

I'm glad he took the time to meet with her and her husband. Looks like all the effort payed off.


Man that was quick. Fox News is now actually mentioning that Sheehan DID meet with Bush before. Looks like I blogged too late on this.
