My letter to Newsweek
I imagine you're getting some flak over your fawning (and non-factual)
praise of President Bush.
Perhaps your motives are of a patriotic nature, but you failed to state that, so your actions are puzzling.
I'm a fair person, so I thought of a challenge:
Could you publish (or just send to me to publish) something from your back issues where you
heaped such mountains of praise on a Democratic president who fairly won election?
Clinton would be the easiest example, I guess.
Please forward to me a few paragraphs (with attribution) where your
magazine printed paragraph after
paragraph about Clinton's greatness and I will reconsider my opinion of you as a tool of the White House
Thanks, I used to be a reader,

GOP's history is fraught with "dirty tricks" politics
Watergate and/or "Angry White Males" Contract with America notwithstanding,
no episode in the nation's sordid history revealed the ruthlessness of a desperate
Republican Party more than the Clinton sex scandal, which set in motion a series
of dirty tricks that culminated with the GOP literally stealing the presidency.
Subject: Letter to Newsweek
While like many Americans, I am very patriotic
and feel that it is important to be 100% behind my leader,
I am not sure I agree with your quote. Since the 1st day, September 11, as I watched NYC skyline go up in
smoke from my porch, Bush has done nothing to re-assure me and make me feel safe. He wasn't the "model
of unblinking, eyes-on-the-prize...". He galloped around the country before returning to Washington, wept in
front of the camera, and had the "deer caught in the head lights" look when talking to the reports.
In fact, if it wasn't for my Mayor, Rudy, I don't
know how I would've felt that day.
"The President doesn't read many books", that should not be something to be proud of.
He is a leader of the free world, the guy who controls the most powerfull army in the world,
he really should read a book here and there.
The media has given him a free ride since day
1, and after a year of having this type
of bologna shoved down my throat, I am getting really sick and tired of it.
That quote is nothing but a blatant attempt to kiss butt, and it just makes me sick!

To Military, He's Geraldo non Grata
He's been getting precious little cooperation from U.S. military
officials who apparently don't cotton to the left-leaning TV star.
"The military remembers his support of Bill Clinton,"
says one insider.
"They won't let him get near stories he wants — particularly if it
involves interviewing U.S. personnel."
You gotta love our military.
They support arms for hostages, arms to terrorists, secret pardons to hide the truth,
a richboy wartime deserter who never worked a day in his life - no problem.
Hell, Smirk even promised "Help is on the way," then stabbed them in the back with,
"We want to review our options before we just throw money at them."
But if a man gets a blow job and tried to hide it, they turn on him and all who supported him

During the Monica Lewinsky crisis, the vicious and narrow-minded puritanical men and women
of the Republican Party, like a pack of hungry wolves, ganged up on President Bill Clinton to put
an end to his political life. In their haste to crucify Clinton, Republicans are guilty of depleting our
precious resources and diverting our nation's attention from our already threatened national security.

It has occurred to me that I haven't seen anything from Geraldo Rivera
on Fox, except his self-agrandizing sit-down studio blurb about how
totally psyched he is to be a "war correspondent".
What's up with that?
Anne, he just went to open bin Laden's hidden vault.
I thought Horrendo was to smart to do what he has done.
The right-wing will always hate him for standing up for Clinton,
and now the left hates him for turning into Murdoch's whore.

"The First Team has been exemplary in the eyes
of the American people.
Bush has been a model of unblinking, eyes-on-the-prize decisiveness.
His basic military strategy... has proved astute. He has been eloquent in public,
commanding in private. He had survived the first blows, made the right calls
and exceeded expectations-- again. The president doesn't read many books,
because he's busy making history, but doesn't look back at his own, or the world's....
Bush would rather look forward than backward. It's the way he's built."

Great stuff on RB Ham's site...
by Bob Herbert
If you're the United States of America, and you're going to start arresting people and
bringing them to trial, you have to give them fair trials. And before you start executing
people, you have to try to make sure you're separating the guilty from the innocent.
This is not a principle that evaporates because the populace is angry and frightened.
Excuse me, Mr Herbert, but you are in error.
That last sentence should read, "This OUGHT NOT TO BE a principle..."
since we are already living in times when Bush's whims supersede the Constitution.
"Under certain circumstances - very,
very restricted circumstances, depending on how it's handled,
I'm willing to look at it. With regard to the situation in Afghanistan in particular, trying a Taliban
or terrorist or ... people involved in terrorist activity, clearly there's at least the possibility that
something like that might have merit."
-- Tom Daschle, Bush's other rubberstamp, on NBC's "Meet the Whore"
Remember when there was a thing called "the opposition party?"
