This is not a left or right issue. On the MSM in the last few weeks, I have constantly heard the talking heads that find a need to explain everything that is happening to Americans, as if we cannot think for ourselves, that the Democrats are not going to “give-in” to the “left-wing” of their party. That the Democratic win in 2006 was because the people wanted to “change the course of the war and not to impeach the president”. That is a very subjective observation, and the people that made this observation on Wolf Blitzer’s show on CNN last night, had no right to say what it was that the American people did or did not vote for. For many years now, we have been told what Americans are thinking, and why we do the things we do. The analysts have gone way overboard when they make these comments. The woman that said these things should have began that statement with some kind of modifier. She could have said that “Some believe that the American people did not vote for the Democrats to impeach Bush”.
Besides the gutting of the Constitution by the executive branch and the 109th Congress, the mainstream media acts as if it has a crystal ball and can read the minds of the American people. Both of these assaults on our values have got to stop. I don’t believe that it is just “The Left” of the Democratic Party that wants this President impeached. I also don’t believe that the election was won by the Democrats because we just wanted to change the course of the war. I believe that Americans may be just about sick and tired of our rights being taken away by the government under the guise of “The War on Terror”, and this executive throwing away the resources of the American people on this war that in reality was a huge error of judgement by the intelligence community and George W. Bush. This is not opinion, this is fact. Do I have to repeat the FACT that NO weapons of mass destruction were found?
What I had set out to expound on before I found myself diverted, is that the is just not the left wing of the Democratic Party that wants this war to end and our rights restored. There are people on the right and there are Republicans that also support this. This idea that the MSM is trying to deliver to the American People that it is just the “fringe” of the Democratic Party that is demanding that is a cover-up of the truth. I saw the same tactics when the nation decided that it had enough of the Vietnam War. At first, the media claimed that people who wanted out of Vietnam were “radicals”. This went on until the government and the media could no longer deny that the majority of the people in this country thought that the Vietnam War should be terminated.
This is no longer a “radical leftist” movement. I believe that the majority of ALL Americans want this President out of office, and this war to end. I believe that if voted on today, that Americans would vote to be free of Bush and Cheney and to be out of Iraq. It is unfortunate that the Mainstream Media must use labels to describe people that are sick and tired of the status quo. It is a sad situation to hear them minimize this nations discontent, in fact it is almost criminal. I believe that a large majority that don’t consider themselves “leftists” would agree with me. I might agree with the left, sometimes I can agree with the right. Labels simplify complicated matters do everyone determent. The sad fact, is that the Iraqi and the American people are worse off than they were before this war. I think most can agree on that.
