Between the ages of 10 and 22, I grew up in the Reagan/Bush White Houses, and I hated those presidents with whatever the rations of hate I had available.
But today when George W. Bush visited Martin Luther King's grave, he was booed and harassed. So remind me, is there some other example within our lifetimes of a point where the President of the United States was ridiculed and rejected in a solemn context like that? Was there ever another time when the President of the United States was told to "GO HOME" when visiting one of those united states?
Because which home is that, and how exactly would he go there? Could it really be that Atlanta, Georgia is a different country than the District of Columbia? More different than it was during the civil war? Less different?Posted by kevin slavin at January 15, 2004 09:07 PM
