  President Bush threw out the ceremonial first pitch Saturday at the Washington Nationals season opener and the inaugural game at Washington's National Ballpark. But the President, an avid baseball fan and the former owner of the Texas Rangers, probably didn't get the fan response he was hoping for, as he was largely booed by the 41,000-person sellout crowd as he walked out to throw the pitch.

This must be what Cheney was talking about when he said Bush had suffered more than anyone else during this war. Some people loose their lives or limbs. He smirks through a booing.

Cheney said that no one suffers more (not even the families left behind) than GWB when a soldier dies in Iraq. I have been looking at him for over 5 years to get a glimpse of that suffering. Instead, I see him doing the jig, making jokes while looking for WMDs under his desk, speaking of how romantic war must be, participating in every roast possible and so many many more activities that he should be ashamed to attend while he has our troops (they volunteered Cheney reminded us) serving two, three, four, five tours in Irag. Viet Nam at it worst - they served 1 tour unless the soldier requested a second tour.

In management they say a bad manager has 3 years and everything will implode. We are surely seeing that theory being played out.

I expect my president to be in the oval office day and night (how can "W"orthless sleep so well). He shames me to my core.

Ironocally, Bush expresses a delusional notion that he will somehow be compared to Lincoln by historians. What an insult to the memory of Lincoln, considering the fact that no similarities exist between the two wars and how they were conducted. Lincoln truly suffered throughout the Civil War; his photographs depict his advanced aging in the four years that he was president during the war. He worked tirelessly, for 18 hours a day, to deal with the crisis of war, rarely taking time off for his own enjoyment. The result was a victory for the Union, and a United States which remained united. Does anyone believe that Bush works 18 hours a day, while suffering over his "war on terrorism," which is being waged in a country that had nothing to do with 9-11? We are supposed to believe that he actually suffers? Yeah, right...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
