I also got to meet the First Lady and GW when I was back in D.C. last November/December.
And you are right, they are both very nice in person.
And, it is sad that the protesters couldn't make their point without resorting to expletives.
But it's one thing to be a "nice person" i.e. "personable", and quite another to pursue policies which are wrongheaded and result in damage to
our nation, and others.
This becomes especially true when death is involved; it seems we in America are becoming more and more willing to use our military muscle in an
attempt to solve problems. And, sometimes you just gotta' do it, 'cause there is no other way.
But we really, really need to be sure that we are doing it as a last resort because, although our military is the best, and very good at what they do,
our politico's still have yet to figure out how to restore the lives of the innocent who are killed or maimed as a result of these policy
This should be incumbent on the president and his wife, too, be they "nice" or not...
Vulgarity is, well, vulgar...but seeing some innocent civilians with their brains splattered all over the place will beat "profane" protesters in
the vulgarity category every time...hands down.
I am aware this is a judgement call on my part...others would disagree with this, and that's fine...
I see you were an Eagle Scout...I only made it to "Life"...2 mb's short before I lost interest...
