Casey Sheehan's Mom

Since it was Casey who died in service of our country and his mom seems intent on using his death to, well, I'm not really sure what she's trying to do. She claims to want to talk to President Bush about Iraq but, she's already done that and from the published account was ok with the meeting. While I have no idea what it's like to bury a child I do know that if my son or daughter died doing what they wanted to be doing I would not attempt to blame someone else for his or her death.

I believe the war in Iraq is just, the right thing to be doing, and started a decade late. The world should not have spent a decade putting sanctions on Saddam. Everything was in position in 1991. It should have happened then.

Back to Casey's mom. If it weren't for the ultraleft organizations that were supporting her I might think it was personal. But with Code Pink, Michael Moore, and other behind her this is nothing but politics. It's just another attempt to embarass the President.

It was mentioned on a blog I read (and I can't seem to find it again) that Bush should offer to meet with her. One on one. The only condition would be that she would not discuss the meeting with anyone. Ever. The idea has merit but since Casey's mom either lied about the first meeting with Bush then or now - well I don't trust her. Neither should the President. Remove the liberal bias from the MSM and this would have been a non-event.

The MSM media should be covering the 9/11 commission omission. Or all the good news from Iraq. Or maybe even just talking with the writers of Iraq the Model. But no - we get night after night coverage of yet another leftist stunt. Sad.

When this is all over Casey will still be dead. Nothing can bring this brave American back. Casey's mom will still be bitter. She is the only one who can change that. We will still be in Iraq because we have a President who is commited to finishing the job. Hopefully the American people are as well.


There is now a picture of Casey's Mom and President Bush, hand in hand, with the President kissing her on the cheek circulating around. It was apparently part of a memorial web site to Casey but, for some reason, has been pulled. My already low opinion of Casey's mom is now zero. She's so consumed with hatred of the President that she will blame him for what happened to her son. So very sad.
