Moveon.org! What a great idea! They should move on. And on, and on.....
Sure, they have every right to do what they do, and say what they say, but if anyone out there thinks for a minute they are providing an honest, constructive venue for ideas, they are sadly mistaken. They are extremely far-left wing, heavily financed by George Soros (so money is not an issue with them), and they will literally cut out your political heart if given the provocation to do so.
In case you didn't notice, none of the Democratic nominees for the presidency had the courage to denounce their full page ad in the New York Times. As ignorant as some of them sometimes sound, they are smart enough to know they will be vilified by the left-wing bloggers if they should take a stand against them. They are, in short, running scared. Just my opinion.
My hat goes off to Tim Russert. He is an admitted Democrat, but when he goes to work he checks his politics at the door. He will ask the same tough questions to everyone, regardless of their politics. No holds barred.
He is certainly a breath of fresh air in an industry which has its stinky side. There should be more people in the business with his dignity and character. Just my opinion.
If one listens closely to those on the far-right and to those on the far-left, it is fairly easy to conclude that the truth lies somewhere in the middle. The middle is not nearly so agenda-driven.
Although I have been correctly accused of leaning to the right, I find myself as uncomfortable with the far-right as I do the far-left. I can be conservative in my political views without being radical. It's just that the far-left seems to me to have a much more vicious agenda. Just my opinion.
Is it just me, or does it seem to you there is just no logic in our government anymore, on either side. With most of the Democrats and some of the Republicans calling for the imminent withdrawal of our troops from Iraq (and believe me, I would love nothing more than to see them come home), would it not make sense, in the natural order of things, to talk about bringing our troops home from Korea and Germany too? They have been there much, much longer, and we still have an active enemy to deal with in Iraq.
Are we going to bring them (the terrorists) here, too? Seriously, what happens if we indeed do bring our troops home and the terrorists decide to set up shop on our soil? I find this possibility very unsettling and not without merit. Just my opinion.
