Good duck by Bush!  Luckily it wasn't a grenade.

Of course they did.

They throw shoes as a sign of respect in the Middle East.

That Iraqi guy should be castrated and forced to eat his own balls.  Nobody should be allowed to throw their shoes at the president of the usa, even if it is Bush.

Would if his entire family was killed by collateral damage because of the Bush-led invasion? Throwing a shoe at the man who is responsible for your families death isn't that big of a deal.

I am surprised he even got that far.  How was he able to throw not 1, but 2 shoes at the POTUS without being shot, tackled, or otherwise subdued?

Sorry, still no excuse.  He should be eating his own balls right now.

Bush was probably pretty good at dodgeball as a kid.

Seems like the Secret Service was moving a little slow. This is the only time that they have been tested during Bush's presidency AFAIK, and it was pretty unimpressive at their reaction time.

They were looking for guns, and knives.. not shoes.

Really...who throws a shoe??

Shoes can be very dangerous weapons!  You'd know this if you ever tried to board an airplane.
