Newsflash. The Dem party is not particularly anti-war. They just pander to anti-war folk during the election cycle. Those of us who are anti-war are particularly annoyed that Obama escalated the war in Afghanistan etc.Posted by: hippie at March 11, 2010 12:48 PM
Ummm... the media may be horrid but that drunken rant was pathetic and most people would be fired for that kind of display. I hope he's getting help.Posted by: No media fan at March 11, 2010 2:52 PM
It might have been over the top, but Pat Kennedy is correct for a change. We need to re-access our priorities if Afghanistan cannot be stabilized through a offensive 'surge,' while al Qaeda leadership is still at large just over the Pakistan border.
The guy who financed the destruction of my office building is still at large. And our executive branch has failed to capture or kill him for 9 long years.Posted by: Dhalgren at March 11, 2010 4:34 PM
