Here's the reason he should meet with her, but not alone. Other relatives of dead and wounded soldiers and some of the soldiers, themselves, should be included. He might also invite a few Iraqis who support the effort to free a people long held in bondage by Saddam Hussein and who face new bondage under the totalitarian dictatorship of Islamofacism if this effort fails.
The president should hold the meeting in a public place. Let the criticism flow, but let Iraqi women tell their stories about rape and torture at the hands of Saddam's now-dead sons. Allow Iraqi men to tell about life under Saddam and how grateful they are that he is gone. Wounded soldiers and families of the dead would speak in support of the war effort. Members of Sheehan's own family could come. They posted a letter on the Drudge Web site in support of the president.
If she is galvanizing the anti-war movement, be assured that she is also galvanizing the pro-war movement. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The problem with this is that the mainstream media is only reporting her side. Quite self-evident as to why, huh?

What's interesting to me is you not seeing half of Americans (not MoveOn, not Mike Moore, not Sheehan supporters, not whatever else goads your ire), but half of Americans are against the Iraq war and have been for some time... just as half are pro-war.
I don't know how media manipulation could solidify, grow or overrepresent a 50/50 split. But I do know that half this nation has been sorely unrepresented in the coverage of the debate for years. I'm sorry but the "Democratic minute" following the weekly post-election, still campaigning Bush tour stop, the Pentagon briefings, the White House briefings, Generals on parade and everything else catering all the attention to framing the "official" story doesn't cut it.
If it took covering a crazy lady shadowing National Lampoon's Bush on Vacation to finally get fair & balanced, I'm just glad the media finally found it's ass with both hands.

Point is if you volunteer for army, you know you may go to a war and may DIE, it's an occupational hazard. If you don't like the risks DON'T JOIN THE ARMY ffs.
It's a different story with a conscript army... or after a draft... but if you volunteer into the army of the "world police" you should understand that it "might" be dangerous.

If you guys have been reading all the Sheehan threads, you will know that this is exactly what Moveon.org said Rove's strategy was. To start a grass roots smear campaign against this woman.
