Why I love my President...
President chokes up as he honors a war hero

WASHINGTON - President Bush cried yesterday as he presented the Medal of Honor to the family of a New York Marine who dived on a grenade to save his comrades.
Marine Cpl. Jason Dunham of upstate Scio, N.Y., saved at least two lives by his bravery during a struggle with an insurgent near the Syrian border.

The presentation was made during a solemn ceremony in the East Room of the White House before a packed crowd that included Dunham's family and dozens of his fellow Marines in their dress uniforms.

"I've lost my son, but he became a part of history," said Dunham's mother, Deb. "It still hurts as a parent, but the pride that you have from knowing he did the right thing makes it easier."

The President was clearly moved by the moment, and tears streaked down his cheek.

Dunham is the second member of the military to receive the Medal of Honor, the nation's highest award for bravery, in the Iraq war.

Unfortunately, you're preaching to the choir.

The liberals who REALLY need to see this article will never give it a second thought.

Hello, English Green Party supporter here.
I do believe Bush is okay only on the status of Darfur, he's quite good there, but Tony has been doing more and for a longer period of time. Yet, it's nice for Bush to care for the Darfuri people.

Shame he can't get his act together on other things, so well.
He has Kudos from me for Darfur, but he needs to do more to win my trust.
