Bush To Get Purple Heart Today?

Posted in Around The Nation, Commentary, District 31 at 10:08 am by wcnews

Came across this today and it’s totally bizarre, Copperas Cove man to give president his Purple Heart.

Thomas said he and his wife came up with the unprecedented idea to present the president with the Purple Heart over breakfast one morning a few months ago as they discussed the verbal attacks, both foreign and domestic, the commander in chief has withstood during his time in office.

“We feel like emotional wounds and scars are as hard to carry as physical wounds,” Thomas said.


Thomas said he drew up a citation and he and his wife signed it before dropping it and the medal off with Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock, to forward to President Bush.

“Congressman Carter called me last week and said the President was very moved by it, and would like us to present it in person,” Thomas said.


“I feel the President deserved one,” he said. “The bottom line is, I paid for these Purple Hearts with my blood.”

The Thomas’ are scheduled to be at the White House at 12:30 p.m. Monday.

“As John Carter said, this is a piece of American history,” Thomas said.

Our poor, victim president.


Helen Thomas, David Gregory (sometimes), etc.. and the foreign media are just wounding our president so much he needs a Purple Heart? This is ridiculous. Criticism is expected in his job and he doesn’t deserve a medal for taking it, no matter how much it is.

    President Bush deserves a Purple Heart every bit as much as John Kerry.
