Laura Bush was upset that the Iranian regime supporter and Sadrist assaulted her husband.
The First Lady said that her husband laughed off the attack but that she saw it as an assault.
FOX News again today asked her about the attack on her husband:
First Lady Laura Bush said she was offended by the recent “assault” on her husband, who had two shoes thrown at him during a recent visit to Iraq. At the same time, however, she said the assault shows that Iraqis feel a lot freer than they did before.
“I know that if Saddam Hussein had been there the man wouldn’t have been released, and probably would’ve been executed,” she said of the Iraqi journalist, who was arrested following the Dec. 14 incident and has been in custody since.

Laura Bush noted that President Bush is a “natural athlete” as demonstrated by his ability to dodge the shoes.
Bush, who appeared in an interview taped for “FOX News Sunday,” said she never thought she would personally have the power to spotlight her favorite issues until after Sept. 11, 2001, when she began discussing the plight of women in Afghanistan…
Asked if she wanted to get anything off her chest, Bush said no, but then responded: “Do I think the press is fair? No, absolutely not, but you are, Chris, so thanks a lot,” she told “FOX News Sunday” host Chris Wallace.
In a disgusting show of media bias, some American reporters even supported the assault on President Bush.
