    not "let them."

    One of those ways is to stand in defense of Bowe and his family, to let them know that we as Americans have their back even as the most craven among us wish to demonize them as part of a political game.

      Think we are all doing what you're saying, and yes, "not letting them" get away with it w/out opposition voice.

      But from what I've seen of the current GOP, there's no stopping them on their current path. And not being able to stop them should not be confused with "letting them."

      IMO, the ONLY thing that will stop them is how we vote. IF, oh please, we boot them from power an inch at a time until they change their tune. We have a long way to go, but the coming mid terms are so important in that quest, I don't have the words.

      They are still convinced they'll win the senate, and the media will keep beating the drum for them right up to election night.
      Let's just hope Democrats have learned something after the mid terms of 2010.
