Shades of Message brutality for the candidate Flying without brains
Say what? Brian Williams, on NBC evening news, told the American people that President Bush “had taken a decidedly pro-Georgia position” as Russian troops invaded a former soviet state, Georgia.
The gall of NBC, perhaps from a “moral equivalence” perch, to speak “mumbo jumbo” rather than report the news of the Russian invasion of a sovereign and democratic state.
However, it’s not surprising that NBC and the other media acolytes would take a “hands-off” view of their leftist Russian brethren. Throughout the slaughter, imprisonment, and abusing of multi-millions by the former Soviet Union, it was “no big deal,” nor was it a “big deal” when — after our soldiers pulled out of Vietnam — that a couple of million people were slaughtered in Vietnam and Cambodia.
The Left never quite sees that slaughtering a few million here and a few million there by their brethren is very newsworthy.
But when a right-wing “tinhorn” dictator abuses, kills, and causes persons to disappear by the hundreds or thousands, the leftist media has a “righteous indignation attack” that lasts day after day, month after month; In fact they won’t let it go.
What hypocrites. Mr. McCain, let me begin by thanking you for your military service to our country. I think you are a patriot and a hero.
That said, as someone who has worked hard in multiple sectors of American industry, and having been successful in business because of that hard work, I also recognize that you suffer from a lack of knowledge relative to the private sector.
You angered me and others when you disparaged Mitt Romney for “leading for profit, when you led for patriotism” in one of your debates. Those of us who “led for profit” paid your bills when you were in the military, and have continued paying your bills in the U.S. Senate.
You have never held a real job, or produced anything tangible, and you have scant knowledge of what it takes to make this country the economic engine that it is. Therefore, you need some help in that area and I see Governor Romney as the man. If you choose him, you can count on my financial support, and my vote.
If you choose a career politician as your running mate, I may vote for you, but I will not contribute. If you choose Joe Lieberman, a liberal Democrat who has been called the “Conscience of The Senate,” but who abandoned what few principles he had to run with Al Gore in 2000, I will vote for Barack Obama, in hopes that we can endure 4 years of Democrats with the same results that 4 years of Jimmy Carter got us (12 years of Republicans). Re: your article in the Aug. 18 edition titled “Airline takes heat for charging soldiers bag fee for travel to war” (page 16), the administrators at American Airlines and the ATA must have been trained at the same places as public school administrators. Common sense is lacking in both groups.
