Who died and made her Queen of New Orleans? Not to mention that she is showing up on Michael Moore's Website- is there anyone out there who takes Michael Moore Seriously?
Let's face it, I am not a republican. I am not a George Bush fan. But everywhere GW goes, there must be a slimy trail behind him where the Michael Moore's and Cindy Sheenan's of the world have followed. Don't they have JOBS? How respected would I be if my job was to follow around the president of the United States and talk trash about him? No matter what the man does, those two are right behind him taking the exact opposite side as he does.
All I can say, is that if I enrolled in the Army or any military force, and I was killed in action, and my mother ran around TV and the whole USA blaming The president and claiming that I didn't fight for freedom, I think I would come back from the grave and kick her ass! Her son knew that if and when he re-enlisted he would be going to Iraq. And here she stands blaming GW himself. Ugh. I would honestly say that if my mom did that I would be ashamed of her. I don't know her from adam, but is it not entirely possible that her eagle scout, altar boy, son wanted to get away from her and go be a man? To fight for his country and what he believed in, and to work side by side with people who believed what he believed in? Is it possible that he was doing (for once) what he wanted, and not what his mommy wanted? He actually volunteered for the rescue mission in which he was killed. Does that sound like a man who didn't know or disagreed with what he was doing?
And now suddenly she is on Michael Moore's website telling us what supplies we can send to her in New Orleans? Why is this California woman in New Orleans? Trying to talk us out of putting troops in New Orleans to help evacuate people, control order, and get supplies out? Who does this woman think she is?
Just after her meeting with President Bush in June of 2004, she told a reporter President Bush was "...sincere about wanting freedom for the Iraqis...I know he's sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he's a man of faith." and then 1 year and 10 days later in an interview she described her meeting with President Bush as "one of the most disgusting experiences I ever had and it took me almost a year to even talk about it." She described President Bush as being "detached from humanity" and said that "his mouth kept moving, but there was nothing in his eyes or anything else about him that showed me he really cared or had any real compassion at all." WTF??? Contradict yourself much lady? Ugh. Publicity stunt or something?
Give it up and go home to California. Of course now that her husband has filed for divorce, I suppose she doesn't have much to go back to.
On 11 August 2005 Matt Drudge made public an email he had received from Sheehan's sister-in-law (and Casey's paternal aunt), Cherie Quartarolo, in which she was quoted as saying:
"We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the expense of her son's good name and reputation. The rest of the Sheehan Family supports the troops, our country, and our President, silently, with prayer and respect." Quartarolo signs the email "Casey Sheehan's grandparents, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins.
Linda Ryan, mother of Corporal Marc T. Ryan, a Marine who was killed in Ramadi, says of Sheehan: "She's going about this not realizing how many people she's hurting. When she refers to anyone killed in Iraq, she's referring to my son. She doesn't have anything to say about what happened to my son."
On August 15, 2005, Matt and Toni Matula, parents of Matthew Matula, a Texas Marine killed in Iraq, requested that the white cross representing their dead son as a victim of the war in Iraq be removed, stating that they did not wish their son's name to be part of an anti-war demonstration. Mr. Matula said: "It's fine for people to grieve their own way. It aggravates me to see them using other people's names to further their cause."
Natalie Healy, mother of Dan Healy, a Navy SEAL who was killed in the line of duty in Iraq, organized a rally on August 20, 2005 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire in order to counteract Sheehan's message, stating: "We just want to let the fellas know that we’re supporting them and that we’re not going to wimp out on them."
Gary Qualls, whose son, Marine Corporal Louis Wayne Qualls, died in Iraq, started what was dubbed "Fort Qualls" in Crawford, Texas to counter the "Camp Casey" protests. Qualls has repeatedly removed the white cross bearing his son's name from the Arlington West display set up by "Camp Casey."
