    No, not Lieberperson or the guy from Georgia, but former NYC Mayor Ed Koch...

    I wish The Times and members of Congress were not so eager to demean the President of the U.S. and his advisers, holding them up to scathing denunciation when we are at war. They should realize that the President feels very strongly his obligation to protect us from terrorists overseas and their supporters in this country -- in World War II, such supporters were called Quislings. The critics have short memories. In the 1993 and 9/11 (2001) attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the U.S. suffered nearly 3,000 deaths and more than 1,000 injured.

    And Uncle Eddie has a lesson for the strident BDS victims here and elsewhere...

    The Times has every right to disagree with the President’s action in dispensing with the court set up for this purpose. But it harms the country when it treats the President unfairly with the language and contemptuous tone it now regularly employs.

    The President is not a dictator which, in effect, Congressman Charles Rangel called him when comparing him with disgraced Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos. Nor is he a criminal intentionally violating the U.S. Constitution and the civil liberties of our citizens, subjecting himself to impeachment for “high crimes and misdemeanors.†The President no doubt arrived at his position after being advised by career government lawyers that he is acting within the law. We are at war with millions of adherents of a fundamentalist Islamic creed who believe they have a duty to kill us -- Christians, Jews, Hindus and others -- who do not accept the supremacy of Islam over their own religions.



    Do sane Democrats qualify as an endangered species?

    "To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

    Hilarious.

    And libs contend that the current R Mayor is really a D.

    The Times (et. al. -PWP) has every right to disagree with the President’s action in dispensing with the court set up for this purpose. But it harms the country when it treats the President unfairly with the language and contemptuous tone it now regularly employs.

    The guy is irrelevant, trivial.

    In New York City, no one listen to him.

    I wouldn't waste any more time on this senile old man.
