Seattle Times letters to the editor

The great shoe attack

Professional dodger

How are the Vietnam War and the “great shoe attack” different? They’re not.

President George W. Bush dodged both but the spin doctors state he was an active participant.

— Robert Lade, Seattle

Show some respect

The shoe-throwing incident in Baghdad has electrified and delighted the American media while the Iraqi media expresses shame and embarrassment [“Bush dodges shoes thrown by journalist in Baghdad,” Nation & World, Dec. 15].

I thank God for the eight years President George W. Bush served. He did heroic work in restoring the dignity of his office and protecting our country and the civilized world from barbarism.

He gave us seven and a half years of safety and normalcy and, until the Democrats took over Congress, a growing and healthy economy. As thanks, he has been mocked, vilified, disparaged and humiliated before the world by the very people he served.

Some of us can remember that former President Ronald Reagan was treated the same way by the same kinds of people, yet history has judged him well.

So it shall be with Bush.

— Peter Kogler, Seattle
