Bush takes a mulligan
Accuse Fox News of Illegal Campaign Contribution
AP PHOENIX - It will go down as one of the most painful openings to a political debate in recent memory...
The above phototoon is from 2003.
So Bush is golfing for the children of dead or disabled Americans he sent off to war. How compassionately conservative of him.
"In only his second Oval Office address, President Obama announced the end of Operational Iraqi Freedom. He said we have given the Iraqis a Western-style government. Well, we certainly have, haven't we? Their economy is in shambles, their Congress is corrupt, the country is broke, welcome aboard!" –Jay Leno
Right Wing Religion
A well-known Australian Muslim cleric has called for the beheading of Dutch anti-Islamic politician Geert Wilders, a newspaper said on Friday.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad introduced a weapon called the Ambassador of Death. Not sure the Iranian President is all that clear on the concept of diplomacy. - Will Durst
I do love Jesus and feel no shame, I just generally
think it is better to act like a Christian, rather than try to convince anyone
I love my Country. and the character for which it stands. I am disappointed sometimes in the way that Character is melded by Public Opinion, but the Public is a lot of people with a lot of opinions to which they have a right. Sometimes the Public has to experiment a bit to find the correct balance of opinions to adopt, but I believe that there is enough intelligence within the people to get it right, eventually.
I honor all Military Folks. And I think the greatest honor we can do for them is keep them out of harm's way, as much as possible.
I still have faith in Obama, and I realize he is not going to be able to accomplish everything I would like for him to do within the current political climate. I am tired of e-mail "proving" that he is not an American, Is a Muslim, etc, with some crap from the latest tabloid Rag.
My luck is fine as it is. Not real good, but with a little intelligence, enough to get me by.
I wish I had your faith in the American people. I see a return to the far right philosophies that got us into this mess.
And poor Jesus, his message of peace and love has been successfully armed with Weapons of Media Distortions by a vast right wing conspiracy led by televangelists and Fox News with lessons learned from Madison Avenue. Jesus threw these same moneychangers out of his Temple. Through the miracle of evolution yesterday's moneychangers have become today's Republicans.
Let us not forget that this same group of hate mongers impeached a president for cheating on his wife. A retired investigative reporter informed me yesterday that the GOP Congress during the Clinton years spent 140 hours hearing Congressional testimony investigating their Christmas Card list. Their f*ckin' Christmas Card list.
The irony in all of the GOP Super Patriotism is that their messengers haven't served in the military, Beck, O'Reilly, Hannity, Limbaugh, Scarborough, Palin and probably the entire blonde bimbo squad of conservative cheerleaders spread all over TV.
Republicans use our vets to wave their war flag and Democrats try to get the vets proper health care.
If the GOP gets control of Congress they will impeach Obama and remove him from office. That is their only goal, to get the black guy out of the White House.
I still have faith in Obama. I just wish he had the fight in him to be a tough leader and put these right wing thugs in their place so this country can move forward once again.
Thank you for writing and reminding me that there are good people out there as yourself.
