    Iraqi reporter throws shoes at Bush, calls him dog

    BAGHDAD, Dec 14 (Reuters) - An Iraqi reporter called visiting U.S. President George W. Bush a "dog" in Arabic on Sunday and threw his shoes at him during a news conference in Baghdad.

    Iraqi security officers and U.S. secret service agents leapt at the man and dragged him struggling and screaming out of the room where Bush was giving a news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.

    The shoes missed their target about 15 feet (4.5 metres) away. One sailed over Bush's head as he stood next to Maliki and smacked into the wall behind him. Bush smiled uncomfortably and Maliki looked strained.

    "It doesn't bother me," Bush said, urging everyone to calm down as a ruckus broke out in the conference room.

    When asked about the incident shortly after, Bush made light of it. "I didn't feel the least threatened by it," he said.

    Other Iraqi journalists apologised on behalf of their colleague, a television journalist.

    Bush arrived in Baghdad earlier on Sunday on a farewell visit before he leaves office in January. The U.S.-led invasion in 2003 to topple Saddam Hussein triggered years of sectarian bloodshed and insurgency in Iraq, killing tens of thousands.

    Obama's big ears didn't kill 100,000 people. Your mom needs a serious smack.

    Why couldn't he throw a grenade? A shoe is nothing.

    Wow, this has to be the icing on the cake of humiliation after humiliation. Can't say I feel sorry for him.

    I KNOW.. I mean, how do you react to that? Bush can't really make a big stink out of it because the "attackers" sentiment is not really all that uncommon.. I'm pretty sure millions of us would want to do to same thing.. and knock that big, dopey smirk off his face. But, really, it's kind of sad that this guy just threw shoes at the POTUS and called him a dog and it's considered normal.... I still can't believe we "elected" this idiot.. twice.

    Yea, a very small iota of me does feel maybe some pity on him (like the way the movie "W" makes you feel), but then I think of all the misery caused by his decisions and inactions, and then I slap myself.

    He is like a wounded animal, being humiliated by world leaders left and right, etc. etc. And it's almost like he's in a continual haze and fog.

    I feel embarrassed for our country more than anything.

    I feel sorry for him, then I think of how much an asshole he was.
