Shades of Mes­sage bru­tal­ity for the can­di­date Fly­ing without brains

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - H.E. Todd Nashville, Ten­nessee Roy Yates Freeport, Texas

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.
