    McKinney legislation is very bold but will unfortunately never pass.  McKinney is correct that Bush never legitamately was elected president. Come on votes were so screwed up in Florida . . . Bush has his brother in Florida!!!
    The war may be justified but things have not been handed the best.  9/11 could have been avoided . . but does anyone have knowledge that Busch knew about this prior to the attacks?  Politics and people are very complicated.

    Whe you consider the Republican slogan “Vote for us-We’re the only party that can keep you safe” and “Thank God Bush was president instead of Gore” it is pretty shocking to realize that the Commander in Chief just sat there doing nothing, waiting for someone to tell HIM what to do, for seven long minutes.  Can you imagine the outrage and ridicule from the Fox team if Gore had been president and had acted like that?

    2 TV personalities duking it out over what the POTUS should have done on 9/11 when he heard, “The nation is under attack,” and whether that’s impeachable.

    OK, boys, clearly you’re both under the spell.

    Q: What should the Secret Service have done?

    Many witty answers come to mind, but what they did do was clearly not SOP. Ergo: the POTUS was security stripped and hung out as an easy target for the coup plotters. An hour later Air Force One lifts off without fighter support and when the call comes in, “Angle is next,” it all falls into place and Bush capitulates. He places the call to Putin, who wisely backs down - all documented - and the rest is history.

    So, keep it up. boys, your fans are surely entertained and the disinfo. managers do probably like what they hear…better than the alternative, which is treasonable.

    I’ve only seen Scarborough a few times, but I have to give him some credit for allowing Maher to finish his comments without interrupting him like a lot of others do on their shows. Is he always this courteous? I think he’s wrong on just about everything, but at least an intelligent dialogue takes place.
