There are many people I respect on here, so it seems very odd to me when they go so off base with critiques on their own writings.
Jim might also be somewhere chuckling about the fact that he finally accomplished his goal of bringing all of us opinionated online yappers together in agreement about something!
65 years old was too young. My condolences to the family.
I concur, I will pray for Mr Smiths family.
My sincerest condolences to the family of Editor James Smith.
I,too, am very sorry about Editor Smith. My sincere sympathy goes to his family.
@Kendall & Harry & Mythy - Somehow I think Editor Smith would have chuckled upon noting that, at one time or another, all of us have been called "socialists" or "commies" by the fringe folks! ... I am upset to hear of his death!!!!
Greetings fellow "reds"! Lol!... On a much more serious note, I think all of us here, regardless of political inclinations, should pause and take time to mourn the untimely passing of Editor Jim Smith yesterday ... While we did not always agree, I came to like him and regard him as a true gentleman & a journalist of the highest ethical integrity!
Ithink belittles myth for “beating on that old wmd drum.”
Then, to drive the point home, she writes, “Bush had only been in office a few short months…The clinton security people and system were still in place.”
Let’s see how many “short months” Bush had been in office and still relied on the “Clinton security people and system.” Bush assumed the Presidency on Jan. 20, 2001 and invaded Iraq, ostensibly because Hussein still had WMDs, on March 20, 2003.
That’s exactly 26 months.
Now, Ithink may have meant 9/11. If so, her comment isn’t relevant, since we’ve been discussing WMD’s. WMD’s weren’t a factor in 9/11.
Like Kendall, I’d like to know, “Was this goof up on the WMD still the fault of Clinton and the Dems?“
I've been quite critical of Obama. As much as I was with Bush.
When Sec. of State Colin Powell gave his speech before the UN on the topic of WMD...what year was it?
Was it mere months after Bush took office? No.
Was it one year? No.
He gave his speech on 05Feb03. That is over two years since Bush came to office. Was this goof up on the WMD still the fault of Clinton and the Dems?
It is always revealing when WV republican, harry, shows us ,again, his deep devotion and loyalty to conservative ideology.
Try using your limited brain capacity. Bush had only been in office a few short months. Dominated by hanging chad months at that. The clinton security people and system were still in place.
Five yeats and you robots don't hold bamy responsiible for what he does. Yes I find it very funny.
Enjoy the global warming and your new obamacare today.
"I also find it funny that you just basically said that the brains of the Bush administration was the Dems."
That is funny.
You are humorous Ithink. How exactly am I a socialist? I dare you to find anywhere that I have said that socialism is superior to capitalism.
I also find it funny that you just basically said that the brains of the Bush administration was the Dems. Bush just followed the Dems and never questioned their intel. Isn't that what you are saying?
Uneducated myth is still beating on that old wmd drum. Hey myth, Bush got his info from Clinton, Jay, and the rest of the dem funnies. Watch the tapes. And your boy has been in charge for 5 years now. We are not in ancient history mode now.
We are in the obamacare and other debacles of lies and coverups now. And lying to congress is a pretty serious thing for a president to do. I am looking forward to a republican senate.
Oneill, reading something besides socialist brain washing garbage would surely benefit you and myth and Kendall. I would love to see a poll showing what the PNandS readers think about the socialist ideas of your little red group.
Impeach Obama to save nation.
The author of that is well hilarious.
"Die-hard Obama supporters" will likely never accept the fact this president has done great wrong and endeavors to do greater wrong."
I'll accept that when he and the other right wingers endeavour to put The Shrub and Shotgun Cheney in front of a war crimes tribunal.
WMDs anyone? Was any ever found?
They did find those oil fields though didn't they?
Doonesbury is too offensive author apparently doesn't understand satire.
Gee big surprise there. Rightwingers! Entities of such density.
Let them talk I say! The more they yammer on the more people realize how dead wrong they are. More so people are realizing that the "groups" that are energizing the the Tea Party wind bags are capitalizing on that energy and simply using them as a means of making money.
Yep folks here you go.

... And IThunk's "civics teacher" was obviously a card-carrying member of the John Birch Society - or Ted Nugent!
"Gollum" is obviously confusing Google with Amazon! Lol!
@Kendall - Trying to explain facts to these folks is like trying to teach a snail to appreciate Shakespeare! Today's PKB News & Sentinel LTE column is full of these retrograde "thinkers" ... The worst part of it is that they all claim to be "experts" on The Constitution, but wouldn't know the "Commerce Clause" or "Separation of Powers" from "Green Eggs and Ham"!
