Here are the fact. George W. Bush had seven years to visit the fallen soldiers at Dover and never did. He met with families of fallen soldiers but that was far and few in between. As a disabled veteran, I strongly believe George W. Bush, Dick Chenney and the GOP used veterans for political gains and it's a shame.
Here's a list of brave Republicans who believe in sending men and women in harms way yet they did not have the courage to be in harms way themselves:
* Dick Cheney: Five deferments, the last by marriage.Comment Posted By Sam On 29.10.2009 @ 17:45

"I am waiting for the inevitable absorption of the tea party movement into the Republican party. All that energy has to be channeled somewhere."
And I wonder how the Republican Party will be affected by the absorption of all those populist rent seekers.Comment Posted By sam On 7.10.2009 @ 04:24
Call Beck all the names you want and say he's the kook conservative leader. He's not. He's and entertainer/informer on a news popular channel. He only stokes the stupids that can't think for themselves. I like Beck because to me he seems genuine. He is also funny. You spent waaaaaay to much time obsessing about him. Write about something different. I'm tired of all these bloggers dogging Beck because he is popular right now. You bloggies didn't say jack about him when he was on HNN. He was saying the same things in the same way. Get over yourselves. Ridiculous.....Comment Posted By Sam On 8.04.2009 @ 10:34
Obama has better things to do with his time. He's got a dinner party tonight, and he needs to look prettier than Sarah Palin.Comment Posted By SAM On 31.01.2009 @ 16:25
Dah! Does anybody smell political sabotage? It sure did stink in the McCain Campaign and still does. They have just moved into the Palin arena to take her down before she gets out of the starting gate.Comment Posted By Sam On 6.11.2008 @ 11:21
I just finished listening to the Rosenberg/Kurtz interview and I highly recommend others do the same.
Kurtz did provide some of his initial findings. Namely, some projects that seemed to promote a good education, like an Algebra teaching project, did not get funded by the Annenburg Challenge. Whereas, a Southside Chicago group was given $200,000 to celebrate June 19th.
I am waiting to see a detailed report listing the recipients of the $100 million. What was the group proposing to do and how much did the group get.Comment Posted By Sam On 28.08.2008 @ 12:48
"the still unanswered questions on how Rezko helped Obama move into a house he couldn’t afford at the time."
What question is unanswered?

Taking in the totality of Obama's political positions (if you can possibly divine them) and his longstanding associations, is Obama really "for America"?
I really don't think he is. Much improvement needs to be made, but not his idea of improvement.
Despite his newest general election ad, he's an AINO--American in name only. I really don't want him in my life.Comment Posted By SAM On 21.06.2008 @ 09:45
I would correctly the following, however:
Hagee and Parsley preach a Christian exclusivity that has no place in America.
Their brand of Christian exclusivity has no place in this world. I'm a Christian and what I've heard of them makes me ashamed to have anyone associate them with me. I don't understand their hatred.
The money part for me was the following:
"If it were up to me, I would drive them out of the party as Jesus drove the money changers from the temple – with a whip and some good old fashioned righteous wrath. There is no place in modern American politics for this kind of hate to be spewed and considered 'mainstream' by anyone in the Republican party."Comment Posted By SAM On 23.05.2008 @ 13:50
People can find fault with McCain, but when he showed up in Memphis and withstood boos from the crowd, I thought that took guts. I hope he and his handlers find opportunities for him to show up in difficult places so that a Republican candidate developes a friendlier face.
I think this tact of Obama's in which he circumvents states he doesn't seem to like is very condescending. Perhaps, if he'd stop whining about imagined sleights, he might have time, uh, to campaign.
I hope Hillary buries him in Kentucky.Comment Posted By SAM On 18.05.2008 @ 15:02
