George W. Bush Is a Wounded Iraq War Veteran... In His Soul
This little bit of batshit crazy is a week old, but it was lost in the Virginia Tech maelstrom. I share it with you now.
History will be made today when Copperas Cove resident Bill Thomas and his wife, Georgia, present President George W. Bush with a Purple Heart at the Oval Office.I see no reference of this on the White House site or in any local news reports, so I assume it was cancelled when Cho Seung-Hui started pulling his trigger. Such was the tragedy of the Virginia Tech massacre: It denied George W. Bush his chance to become a hero.
Thomas said he and his wife came up with the unprecedented idea to present the president with the Purple Heart over breakfast one morning a few months ago as they discussed the verbal attacks, both foreign and domestic, the commander in chief has withstood during his time in office.
"We feel like emotional wounds and scars are as hard to carry as physical wounds," Thomas said.
