If it's Tuesday, I Must Be Ranting!

We lost another great journalist this week. Tony Snow, former Press Secretary for Pres. Bush, passed away after a valiant fight with colon cancer. He, along with Tim Russert, exemplify quality, not only in their public persona but as men, fathers, and husbands, as well. Their word was their bond and they both chose to put their families first. Tony will be missed by many.

To my rant: Why is it necessary for the extreme leftist freaks to write hateful things on the Daily Kos and Arrianna Huff and Puffington's blogs? Ms. Huffington at least, had the graciousness to delete the slime from her website. But others gleefully reported Mr. Snow's death as something to cheer about. Heaven forbid, should anyone on the right make idiotic comments when Sen. Kennedy passes away, they'll be garroted publicly.

Why is there such a rampant hatred on the extreme left for conservatives? I don't get it... And when a man dies, leaving a wife and three children to mourn his loss, why do those hateful people find it necessary to act as though they have no moral fiber whatsoever? What do they hope to accomplish? If, as they claim, to want to unify us as a nation, rhetoric such as that is not going to get it done. They don't care for unity - and their hateful words are a testament to that.

Tony snow rocked!

When I heard he passed I said to hubby, here comes the "he's a republican and Bush administrator and he deserved to die" crap.

Makes me mad. They're just big whiny babies and can't think or do for themselves. They need the big government to think and do for them.

I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone would "celebrate" the death of either Tony Snow or Tim Russert. Both men exemplified quality and were true fathers, husbands, and professionals in their chosen line of work.

What on earth is wrong with people? It is truly sad to see what the world is coming to when people can cheer about the death of a man in his prime who never did anything to hurt them or anyone else.

Obviously they have forgotten that "He who is without sin shall cast the first stone".

I don't know honey. They (the left) are quick to question everything we conservatives do though. I just can't stomach most of them. I've deleted more than one from my buddy list. I don't care if you are a liberal as long as you don't go postal with it then shove it down my throat. Just saying. Have a great day sweetie. :)

Oh, I ♥ Tony Snow. :)

I don't know why there is so much hatred Gracie-it's sad. Even if you don't agree with someone's politics, the loss of a human life is sad, indeed...

Their moral compasses are broken. The believe that they are right and they can rightly say anything against people who disagree with them.
