Quote Of The Day: Why Bush Shouldn’t Meet With Cindy Sheehan Again

by John Hawkins | August 22, 2005 3:00 am

“If you allow those who are the most vocal and most antagonistic to get a meeting with the president for fear that publicity will hurt you if you don’t, you’re creating incentives for your critics to become even more antagonistic and more vocal. Then, you’re forever stuck in: Will you or won’t you meet? You’ll no longer lead. You’ll just wrestle with meetings.” — Ari Fleischer[1]

Agreed.

Furthermore, why meet with someone who has already lied[2] about her first meeting with you and only wants to get together with you to further a political agenda?

Bush has already met with “about 900 family members of some 270 soldiers killed in Iraq or Afghanistan,”[3] including Cindy Sheehan. If Bush wants to meet with more families, good for him. But after her recent behavior Cindy Sheehan certainly doesn’t deserve a 2nd meeting.
