  •  Just once I would like (4.00)
    some msm "news" host to ask Rice or Cheney or Rove or (fill in the blank) if they believe that all Americans have turned into abject, spineless cowards who must be "protected" at any cost.  I wish I had the means to go to a red blog and ask the same thing of those Bush-loving bullying wimps.  When did we become such fraidy-cats?  Did 9/11 completely traumatize everyone into fetal positions?  We're not the first generation to have serious enemies.  I vividly recall the mandatory blackouts during the second WW, because of potential German bombing raids.  No one in my household hid under the bed and my grandfather forbid anyone to voice fear, saying it was contagious.  C'mon America, straighten your spine! "You have nothing to fear but fear itself." [FDR]  
    •  i've been thinking the same thing (none)
      bush is the anti-FDR. for this administration, there's none of this 'we have nothing to fear but fear itself' stuff. nope. instead it's 'be afraid! they're gonna getcha.... Boo! BOO!' all day, everyday.

      it suddenly hit me the other day... where's the backlash? i'm surprised there's been none. are we really such a bunch of wimps? i don't think so. more like bleary and overextended. still, it's no excuse.

      time to wake up and get mad. no one likes being called a coward.
