Apparently, There Was Only a War Under Bush

Oh, how the media loved her in Crawford.

Assigned Reading: ABC’s Gibson to Cindy Sheehan: ‘Enough Already’
(FROM: The Washington Examiner)

For the last three years of the Bush Administration, Cindy Sheehan was a staple outside the president’s ranch in Crawford, Texas. She was worshiped by the anti-Bush left. She was everywhere on the nightly news. Now, as she prepares to follow President Barack Obama to his vacation spot at Martha’s Vineyard, however, I expected she’d be merely stepped over and ignored by the press.

From what ABC anchor Charlie Gibson said in a Chicago-area radio interview, I was right:

It’s such a sad story. Martha Raddatz [of ABC News] wrote a terrific book about one battle that took place in Iraq, and it was the battle in which Cindy’s son was killed. And you look at somebody like that and you think here’s somebody who’s just trying to find some meaning in her son’s death. And you have to be sympathetic to her. Anybody who has given a son to this country has made an enormous sacrifice, and you have to be sympathetic. But enough already.

The Washington Examiner piece has the rest of the information, including a comparison with Gibson’s own statements from years past, and a link to the entire radio interview.

    Enough already Charlie Gibson, enough. I have not watched that man or his station since his arrogant attitude towards the governor of Alaska, during his interview last year while she was campaigning for the VP slot. Regardless what anyone thought of the good governor, his attitude pissed me off…. I am done with ABC as well as the mainstream media.

    Excuse me while I rant… The most disturbing part of this presidency has been his blatant disregard for the troops. I have absolutely no respect for him, his administration, or the leftys in the media and throughout the country.

    Off topic but a MUST READ on the H1N1 and what we're not being told:

    This would be unbelievable, except that the info came from Global Research.

    (I told my son NOT to take the vaccine; am glad I did tell him.)

    If the "news" doesn't make Obama/Soetoro look good or give the MSM an opportunity to drool over the likes of Bawney Fwank, the great fashion statement of bare arms, or the dignity of a ghetto fist-bump, then we are supposed to believe it's not worth covering. Journalism has all but come to a standstill. Guess is, they've taken the route of Obama/Soetoro's autobiography by telling us what they want us to believe, not what they want us to know.

    This story depressed me because I can't get our troops off my mind… it seems Iraq is getting shaky, and Afghanistan is really quite a fight. These young men and women need to be fixed in our thoughts and our prayers, and we need to somehow get our love and respect for them, to them. Recently saw a story on suicide rates in the military and it is quite saddening. What can we do for these guys? They are paying a dear price fighting for freedom and our security.
