    CRAWFORD - President Bush's supporters poured into Crawford by the thousands Saturday, for the first time outnumbering war protesters led by Cindy Sheehan, who began a vigil here three weeks ago, demanding a personal meeting with the vacationing president to talk about her son's death in Iraq. With police security tight and the heat intense, tempers flared, and traffic was clogged. But by late afternoon, only two people had been arrested for what the Secret Service described as a minor "attitude thing." An estimated 3,000 to 4,000 people attended a pro-Bush rally in Crawford, waving flags and pledging allegiance to...

    Crawford Report! Pictures of the People Who Stand for Freedom and of the so called peace house that wishes to destroy the reputation and well being of our soldiers, President and country. God Bless this great country! Here are many pictures taken in Crawford, Texas on Saturday. Just wanting to share what we saw while we were there. As you can tell from the pictures there were over a thousand people there representing our soldiers. There was even a phone call from Iraq, a father spoke to his son and shared the sons thoughts with us. I did not go...

    Now that the nation has experienced the "Battle of the Moms" in Crawford, Texas, what have the organizers of Move America Forward (California Congressional hopeful Howard Kaloogian) accomplished with this high priced media caravan? What did they accomplish, other than boosting Cindy Sheehan's media attention when her saga was growing old and cold. The folks at Move'on and "Sheehan Tent and Awning" should send Move America Forward a donation check...nothing better than 'un-efforted' attention from the press. Just get the name spelled right. Has MAF produced a desired result for the military, for the citizens of this country, or have...

    Lone Star Times ^ | 8/28/05 | Ree-C Murphey
    Yesterday, my family and I attended the pro-Troops, pro-Bush rally in Crawford. We did so because we wanted to show our support for the Troops, for President Bush and their mission. I also, as an experiment, wanted to compare our observations vs. what is reported in the news. I find it odd that the minute the Pro-Bush, anti-Cindy sentiment could be highly visible, the coverage goes away. Granted, bigger stories have surfaced (Hurricane in New Orleans), but still, given all the time and space and money the Mainstream Media devoted to Cindy Shehan, I would think some obligatory follow up...

Everyone who was able to attend saw different things, had different experiences, came away with a different idea of what transpired yesterday. That is the nature of how these things work.</p>

    MORAL authority is about to have a showdown in Crawford, Texas, where the parents of soldiers in Iraq will square off in the heat-shimmering periphery of President George W. Bush's averted gaze. Cindy Sheehan, the bereaved mother who has gained international attention by posting herself outside the Bush ranch and demanding a (second) meeting with the president in the wake of her son's death, is about to have company of a different sort. Not the supporters she's grown accustomed to -- television crews, anti-war demonstrators, Democratic consultants and America's political left -- but a small cavalry of opponents who feel...

    This one-stoplight town of 700 residents near President Bush's ranch braced for thousands of visitors Saturday, most in a cross-country caravan for a pro-Bush rally and others to support Cindy Sheehan's anti-war demonstration. More than 3,000 people were expected at the school football stadium for the culmination of the "You don't speak for me, Cindy!" tour that started last week in California. It would be the largest counter-protest since Sheehan started camping out off the road leading to Bush's ranch Aug. 6. She vowed to remain unless he talked to her about the war with Iraq that claimed the life...

    Here's the more detailed plans for our event in Crawford on SATURDAY, AUGUST 27.I have been in contact with the organizer of the Move America Forward Caravan Planner. We decided that the best place to meet up with the caravan is in Waco. We can meet in the WalMart parking lot at the intersection of I-35 and Lake Shore. That is on the west side of I-35. I would suggest that if you plan to follow the caravan in from Waco, that you be at the parking lot no later than 11:45--they may be running later, but won't be there...

    The residents of Crawford, TX thought things were bad last week, but many of them were ill-prepared for what was to come Saturday, August 13, 2005. The crowds had been slowly swelling in response to the notorius stalking of President Bush by Cindy Sheehan, the woman so obsessed with her own emotional needs, that she was willing to disrupt the lives of an entire town. It is tempting to blame Sheehan's therapy group for joining her on her emotional journey, but in actual fact, Sheehan herself strongly encouraged the reinforcements. On Saturday, (and Friday) the whole event suddenly swelled to...

    MY SON is a new active duty United States Marine. I am compelled to thank you for watching his, and all United States Armed Service's men's and women's, back in Crawford this weekend. There are no words that will adequately describe my thanks for your response to the woman and her dangerous agenda in Crawford. I am, simply, in your debt. It has never been more obvious that the MSM cares less for our troops than Casey Sheehan's mother. Their sins of omission in the reporting of Saturday's efforts to SUPPORT OUR TROOPS while continuing to promote her dangerous agenda...

    CRAWFORD, Texas – President Bush, noting that lots of people want to talk to the president and ‘‘it's also important for me to go on with my life,'' on Saturday defended his decision not to meet with the grieving mom of a soldier killed in Iraq. Bush said he is aware of the anti-war sentiments of Cindy Sheehan and others who have joined her protest near the Bush ranch. ‘‘But whether it be here or in Washington or anywhere else, there's somebody who has got something to say to the president, that's part of the job,'' Bush said on the...
