Let’s Talk, Cindy Sheehan – Mom to Mom

(Dateline: Dallas, Texas) – Deborah Johns, the leader of Move America Forward’s “You Don’t Speak for Me, Cindy” Tour, today issued the following statement regarding the caravan of military families and their supporters that are heading to Crawford, Texas for a major pro-troop rally (“We Support Our Troops AND Their Mission”) on Saturday, August 27th.

“As the proud mother of a U.S. Marine who has served two tours of duty in Operation Iraqi Freedom, I have been saddened by the hurtful comments made by Cindy Sheehan in regards to the men and women of the United States military and our Commander in Chief.

For three weeks Cindy Sheehan has made inflammatory and untrue statements about the mission our troops have been serving. It was these non-stop attacks and hateful words that compelled me to take action. That is why I joined with Move America Forward to organize the “You Don’t Speak for Me, Cindy” Tour.

Cindy Sheehan doesn’t speak for me, nor does she speak for the overwhelming majority of military families. And from the calls and emails I have received during the past week, I can tell you that she does not speak for the vast majority of families who have had to endure the pain of losing a loved one in the war on terrorism.

Since she first arrived in Crawford, Texas, Cindy Sheehan has been demanding that she receive a second meeting with President Bush so that she may continue her political and personal attacks against him. Yet, she admits that she won’t listen to a thing he says.

Well I would like to talk to you, Cindy Sheehan.

I invite Cindy Sheehan to sit down and meet with me when I am in Crawford, Texas on Saturday, August 27th. We can talk one-on-one, in a respectful, private and sincere manner, one mother to another.

I would like Cindy Sheehan to justify how her effort to undermine our troops’ mission does anything but dishonor those men and women in harms way?

I would like to ask Cindy Sheehan why she emboldens the terrorists by calling our President a murderer and the ‘real terrorist?’

And I would like to invite Cindy Sheehan to honor the requests from the overwhelming majority of our troops who ask the American people to not waiver in their resolve to support the efforts our troops are serving in.

Cindy Sheehan: You’ve said you wanted to talk about these issues. I invite you to discuss them with me. It shouldn’t be too hard to find the caravan of military families I will be bringing to Crawford on Saturday.”
