I would like to hear why his comments in the article, which, coincidentally, I sent to wrveres, are "poo." Care to go into further detail about why you feel that way?
ps - Sorry, wrveres, but I think that Jon Stewart is pretty funny. The Daily Show was hilarious. I miss having cable...
That Stein article is somewhat misleading. I'll just pick one quote from that article,
There is no overwhelming evidence that global warming exists as a man-made phenomenon. There is no clear-cut evidence that global warming even exists.
Yeah, it's true there is no overwhelming evidence and there is no clear-cut evidence. But if you remove just those two words then you get a false statement.
Unless his article was directed at Kanye West, I don't know what Stein was trying to prove. I don't recall anyone accusing Bush of making gangsters rape women at the Superdome. What was the point of his #6 comment? I don't know. A lot of what Stein wrote has little substance (unless you're Kanye West).
Of course, George Bush has admitted himself that the federal govt shares some of the blame for the poor disaster response. He takes the responsibility for it. I could, but I'm not going to harp on Bush, he realizes there were mistakes made and he is seeking to correct them. That sits well enough for me.
I truly find it curious that you would give so much credit to Ben Stein, a biased individual on a biased internet webpage that has absolutely no regulations or people to answer to other than its readers while you give less credit to a worldwide news organizations like CNN who do have to worry about political watchdogs.
Let's not forget your post of the blog stating the refugees at the Astrodome were ungrateful. You said yourself that there is probably some truth in it and felt it important enough to share with us. I really wonder if you honestly give that "news" source as much credibility as you do CNN.
