Question: Do you think President Bush’s surprise visit to the troops in Iraq on Thanksgiving was a sincere opportunity to boost morale or political grandstanding to sway faltering public
opinion, or something else? Briefly explain.
|“He had good purpose to go over there. He did it by himself. Nobody sent him over there. The troops needed him over there.” Joseph Pillard, Canarsie||“He’s really not helping anybody. That’s not doing anything for the troops. It’s not helping them, deal with conditions over there. The President isn’t really helping matters, basically.” Abena Amory, Canarsie|
|“I think it’s great that he went because he gives everybody else motivation; do what they got to do. I think he’s a good president. He shows a lot of good leadership. And he’s very genuine.” Tiana Hernandez, Brownsville|
