3. That would require Bush to have an ounce of human empathy,
which he does not.

4. Photo op Bush at his best...but, it goes w/o saying, if they had their way, those guys would
rather haver their legs back..

I'd be thinking seriously about putting a prosthetic foot somewhere really uncomfortable to him. With shameless photo ops like this, no wonder the slimy bastard's approval ratings are in the toilet.

He must be so proud of himself. :eyes:

11. I have a suspicion that the photographer felt the same way.
Notice the photos of just the legs of the two veterans alongside Bush's. No faces, just the contrast of a whole body against two shattered bodies.

20. I was thinking the same.
There were a couple of pics that were close ups of the legs only.

12. That POS! That SOB! He has no soul to use men minus body parts
to make himself feel superior.

May he rot in hell for eternity.

:puke:

13. I am unsure of what to say here.
On one hand, I'm happy these Vets got to see the WH. That must have been cool.

On the other hand, we have Bush. Where is there to go from there, but down. In every instance where he is present. Downhill stuff happens. Karma. Very bad Karma.

I'll say no more.

14. I am now caught up in a cycle of projectile vomiting.
That is the lowest, most cynical series of photographs I've ever laid my eyes on. That fucking black-hearted bag of slime.

17. Lots of people admire * for this kind of stunt.
In the dim recesses of their consciousness, he's paying these soldiers tribute and high honor by hangin' out with them for a while. The criminality and irony of it are lost on them.

18. * looks as if he is quite 'uncomfortable' in the
Edited on Wed Jul-25-07 06:54 PM by vickiss
first 3 photos. I'm sure * was completely disgusted having to do this photo op with 'inferior beings'. I am certain it is not a conscience on his face in those pics.

Is Duncan holding onto * to steady himself or as a gesture of fondness?! * has an odd look. * is much more comfortable in the sixth photo when he seems to feel he is dominating the situation.

I can hear him thinking, "I can beat these losers, I have two legs, hehehe.", in the fourth photo. * is a heinous abomination.

The last 3 photos are...

I cannot find words to express the level of horror and rage...

The physical, mental and emotional damage done to these kids is unforgivable. "God" may 'forgive' them; I cannot.

Thanks for this OP Kadie.

19. How 'bout some photo-ops
with some vets suffering from PTSD flashbacks? You know...they start flashing back at the sound of helicopters, or the flashing from photog's bulbs? Could be interesting when they hit the deck and leave * standing on his hungover, wobbly legs!
