Cindy Sheehan, founder of Gold Star Families For Peace after her son was killed in Iraq, met with Bush:


"But what she encountered was an arrogant man with eyes lacking the slightest bit of compassion, a President totally 'detached from humanity' and a man who didn’t even bother to remember her son’s name when they were first introduced.
Instead of a kind gesture or a warm handshake, Sheehan said she immediately got a taste of Bush arrogance when he entered the room and 'in a condescending tone and with a disgusting loud Texas accent,' said: 'Who we’all honorin’ here today?'"
