CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) – Like many folks in President Bush’s adopted hometown, 83-year-old Robert Westerfield isn’t exactly rolling out the welcome mat for the town’s newest resident: war protester Cindy Sheehan.
“I wish she’d stay away. Crawford’s a Republican town, and she’s a dumb Democrat,” Westerfield, a lifelong Crawford resident, said Friday while sitting on a bench outside a gas station on Main Street.
Heh. I like that guy.
Considering the deceptive nature of the purchase (not to mention a general disdain for all things moonbat) it’s no wonder some residents are upset with the purchase. More on that deception here:
Gerry Fonseca, a Vietnam veteran who attended the protests in August and April, returned to Crawford in June to help the group look for property.
Fonseca said he doubts that any Crawford landowner would have sold to Sheehan or other protesters, so he didn’t reveal his connection. Fonseca, who lost his Slidell, La., home in Hurricane Katrina, told sellers about that part of his life and that he wanted to build.
More via a local TV station in Texas:
“I feel deceived,” said Celia Ramsey, who sold the land to Cindy Sheehan through a third party. She talked to News Channel 25 exclusively on the matter. “I would have never sold it to Sheehan. Nobody wants them here.”
Bbbbut, as Cindy explains, she had no choice but to buy the land:
“I am very sad it came to this point where we had to buy a permanent home,” said Sheehan. “I thought President Bush would have resigned by now. But I am happy about a permanent home in Crawford.”
Could this whole ‘peace movement’ possibly get any more pathetic?
