Correction, wild pitch to the left.

Trying to be humorous here but I have gained a lot of respect for Bush's physical abilities after the shoe throwing incident, the man easily dodged the first one and barely flinched on the second one. I'm not so sure there is many people out there that would have so much poise, you have to wonder how Obama would react to a similar situation. My guess is he hits the deck or tries to hide behind the podium.

I had the opportunity to be at the game today - really cheap seats in the nose bleed section. I did not stand when the President entered the stadium. While it won't show on the video, there was just as many boos as there were cheers when he appeared and walked to the mound. This was the low point of an afternoon of low points. Actually it was a good game if you were for the Phillies, they turned several double plays and one grand slam. The Nationals lost 11-1, leaving 7 runners stranded; once with bases loaded and 1 out - yeah, really. It didn't really matter, an afternoon at the ballpark still beats an afternoon at work hands down. :D

Yep, Bush did it better. Probably practiced more when he was supposed to be on National Guard duty.

Pres. Obama threw that ball as if it were the FIRST TIME he ever threw a baseball...
I wouldn't say that he throws like a girl...
He throws more like a foreigner.

Gee, rberg I wish that you would get your facts straight. It really doesn't help your credibility to repeat inaccurate information. Your implication is clear. However, it has been documented that George Bush completed his military duty and was honorable discharged from the service. This fact is readily available on the internet if you chose to find it. My mind is foggy this morning but didn't Dan Rather ruin his legacy and career over claiming he had papers that proved otherwise; those paper turned out to be fakes, frauds. Bush did not "hide out" in the Reserves during a war time but rather faced the same risks as any one serving in those days did. As I did while serving in the Reserves during the First Gulf War and as my husband did after he was recalled to active duty - twice - after 9/11. Get over it and if you still want to blame Bush at least find something truthful to complain about. Lisa

Right back at you! What I saw was enough to ruin Dan Rather's career; must of been pretty darn convincing for his bosses to take it as fact. Lisa

During the V.N. war the bulk of the military doing the fighting were the ones drafted and or joined. If you had enough pull at the time you could get into the reserves or national guard & keep from going to war. Also anyone that tries to say that any politicians son was treated just like any other is a liar, thats just like saying politics & the service is totally separate.
We won`t even get into Mr. Deferment, it always struck me odd that some chicken hawk was so eager to send our brave men & women into harms way. But then again someone had to give Hali- Burton all that work.

Ask the people of Arlington Texas about Bush's reign over the Texas Rangers. They took a 1/2 cent sales tax increase to pay for it after Bush threatened to move the team unless the city built him a new a stadium. Landowners were swindled on the eminent domain seizing of their property and successfully sued.

Prince George sold so he would not have to pay them, effectively passing the buck onto someone else and his other partners. But this was only after he and his partners tried to get the residents of Arlington to pick up that bill too.

And after the stadium was built, the residents of Arlington didn't get any benefit because they gave all sorts of tax exemptions to Bush and company.

Eminent domain seizing of land, sales tax increases and then tax exemptions. That is his legacy as owner of the ball team.

And in the 100 years of a president tossing out the first pitch, it was a democrat who first got one over home plate. His name was Bill Clinton.

Boy did I hit a nerve. The fact remains Bush completed his military obligation under the law in force at that time. Did he receive special treatment - who knows, he completed his military obligation under the law in force at that time and received an honorable discharge. That is a fact. To imply otherwise as you did in your posting is a fallacy. I can't help it if during the time of the draft politician's sons appeared to receive special handling. Who should you have heartburn over, the son or the father or maybe the system? Obviously, the majority of Americans went after the system as we now have an all volunteer military service and the majority of the politicians got reelected. Lisa

I don`t believe that anywhere in my post did I say he didn`t get a discharge, I`ve never saw a copy of it so I can`t say for sure but as far as I know there was no record of him making all the obligations. The deferments I mentioned were for the V.P. a total of five, maybe some sort of record.
As for the draft system, IMO there should be at the very least a boot camp experience for each & every able bodied high school graduate then we wouldn`t have half the problems we have today. If something doesn`t happen soon we will run out of volunteers, & you couldn`t blame them at least in V.N. you did your tour & had the choice to get out or re-up & for the most part they were young un-married men without too much of a responsibility at home.
