As for Dan Rather - let us see how the facts play out in his $70,000,000 lawsuit. He defended his positions pretty well on Larry King. I am not the judge in the case so time will tell.

Do you want to defend Ann Coulter? How about Bill O'Rilley? Rush Limbaugh? You left them out.

The point is the media is more sensational now than EVER. They focus on issues like a grunt by Howard Dean more than the actual WORDS the guy is saying but when Glenn Beck attacks good Americans in California or Ann Coulter spouts off with anti-Jewish comments its somehow OK. Well, I am saying it is NOT.
*During the Clinton admin we had a budget surplus. Now we are mired in debt.
-Twisted half truth. Common tactic among liberals. Obviously you don't have an economics major.
*The world respected us and we were working towards Middle East peace.
The world had been working toward peace in the middle east for generations which lead to 911. This argument sounds like it come from a 5th grader who watched CNN one night.
*Now we are hated everywhere ESPECIALLY in the Middle East.
-This was absolutly one the hardest things a president has ever done. It is the measure of a man and in this case of a country, who will do the hard things in the face of adversity knowing full well his action will not be popular. This action to steer the middle east towards democracy is something many leader have been reluctant to do for this exact reason. Sense 911 happened, the forced democracy HAD to take place. In addition, the war also diminishes the terrorist ability to stage another 911. You just don't get the big picture. Freedom is not free.

-Just like the lady who sued McDonald's because she spilled hot coffee on herself. Anyone can sue for any, less then honorable, thing.

-Ann Coulter is not worth discussion
-Bill O'Rilley and Rush Limbaugh are louder then they should be. This offers a slight effort to balance against the very loud technique of the ultra liberal. They both do offer facts to back up their anti-rhetoric quite often. Everyone needs balance. Maybe you should subscribe to the Limbaugh Letter. ;-)

-Agreed!
