Over a dozen protestors greet President Bush by Mitch E. Perry02/17/06
There were about 15 citizens who came out to protest the Presidentâ€™s appearance today, meeting at the corner of Dale Mabry Highway and Gandy Boulevard â€¦Most of those came to demonstrate the U.S.â€™s involvement in Iraq, which in a few weeks will mark 3 years in Countryâ€¦. ..
Vietnam Veteran Janis Josephine Carney sees many similarities between the current war and what the US is doing in Iraq right now (roll tape#1 o.q.â€?in one pieceâ€?)
And Carney says that the struggle in Iraq ending just like Vietnam did for the American military (roll tape#2 o.q.â€?and leaveâ€?)
Retired Airforce Major Deb Heading is veteran of both Vietnam and the First Gulf Warâ€¦â€¦Sheâ€™s now with the anti-war group Veterans for Peace, and is critical for the President re-directing the war on Terror on Iraq, and not Osama Bin Laden (roll tape#3 o.qâ€?whatâ€™s next?â€?)
Ed Robertson said he couldnâ€™t live with himself if he had NOT came out to show his dissent towards the President , his policies, and his vice-President (roll tape#4 o.q.â€? something going on there, okay?â€?)
A woman who was identified only as Martha said she hoped that mainstream media outlets would cover the protest to let inform others why there is such dissent against a president, who is barely grazing 40% in the polls (roll tape#5 o.q. â€œsomething thereâ€?)
