Bush Heckled on 4th

On the 4th of July, at a Citizenship ceremony on the grounds of Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, President Bush was heckled by anti- war protesters. Although the Protesters were hustled away quickly they did mange to shout their messages for all to hear. The theme of their disenchantment was that President Bush is a war criminal, the war is illegal and that the war must end.

If the spirit of Jefferson could still judge events at Monticello, one wonders would Jefferson consider the hecklers the true citizens and patriots of the United States that he envisioned, or would he view Mr. Bush's security detail who hustled the protesters away to be living up to the ideal of the United States that he envisioned. The fourth of July weekend is a great time to wonder about the Nation that the men of 1776 envisioned.
