  1. Doug: Didn’t we start sending troops into harm’s way back when Ari was the press secretary. I don’t believe for a minute that Snow’s work on behalf of the Bush administration has kept a single soldier, sailor or Marine in Iraq a second longer.

    And I wish Mr. Snow and his family the best of luck, without conditions.

  2. Yes we did, JP. But Ari isn’t the main topic of discussion today. Tony is.

    Scott McLellan continued Ari’s lies, and Tony continued both. All 3 press secretaries have done their part to prolong this war. Tony has also accused Democrats of endangering our troops and emboldening the enemy as much as his predecessors did. He has used the “cut and run” canard as much as anyone. To me, that keeps our troops in Iraq longer.

    But thanks for your comment, JP. I figured my post would be somewhat controversial.

    In short, you’re a better man than I. I wish Tony and his family the best of luck - with conditions.

  3. Doug, I wish Tony Snow well without conditions. God Bless Elizabeth Edwards and Tony Snow. But I do agree that he is very lucky to have the top health care in the country, FREE at taxpayer expense, while average Americans with cancer and especially homeless people (and homeless children — over 15,000 in Los Angeles alone) have no health care at all.

    Remind me to tell you about the homeless man in Oregon found dead on the street, whose body was sold to a lab for dissecting and experimentation. HE turned out not to be a homeless person, but a father whose ID was in his pocket. No one had bothered to check his pockets…. more on this later.

  6. Hey Voltron:

    Thanks for stopping by. Quick question, tho’. Why the “small mind” comment?

    I would think that the fact that I was completely honest would eliminate any “small mind” notion.

    I also think I laid my case out with clarity, whether one agrees with it or not. Small minds seldom make the case, just the point.

    Or was it because you feel differently? I don’t think you have a small mind because you feel differently than me. I think all this shows is just 2 different minds, and not one necessarily being smaller than the other - just different.

    And let’s not forget. I began my original post by saying I wished Tony well. I just happened to share some other thoughts I was having.

    No hard feelings either way. I still believe I’m not the only one who feels this way - maybe just one of the few who will actually articulate it. Take care.

  7. I can empathize without a caveat. But you’re right, my first response was a tad harsh.

  8. You’re right, I was a tad harsh. I’m more used to doing battle with militant liberals.

    I can however empathize without a caveat.

  9. Doug,

    Your honesty is refreshing. And while I also wish for Tony Snow’s full recovery (having watched loved ones die of cancer, I wouldn’t wish what is happening to him on anyone,) I do hope he realizes that he is going to get access to care that millions of Americans would never see if they found themselves in the same position. I want every American to have the same shot at living that Tony Snow is going to get.

  10. Thanks Volt. Sometimes you are a deep thinker when you are able to see all sides. But name calling is beneath you.

  11. Yes your honesty is refreshing, but I pray for all who have cancer.
