Wrongheaded of Us to Discard Helen Thomas' Contributions After Recent Wrongheaded Comments

Has no thought whatsoever been given to the years of respectable journalism we can thank Helen Thomas for having contributed?  Is a wrongheaded opinion and a few comments from an 89 year old woman going to sum up a career spent searching for the truth?  There is more to Ms. Thomas than the controversial remarks she made recently and I thank her for "...57 years as a correspondent and, later, White House bureau chief for United Press International (UPI). Thomas covered every president of the United States since the later years of the Eisenhower administration, coming to the forefront with John F. Kennedy. She was the first female officer of the National Press Club, the first female member and president of the White House Correspondents Association, and, in 1975, the first female member of the Gridiron Club."

Repuglicans in general, John Boehner in particular "can't handle the truth."  John Boehner has his panties in a knot again, over the truth.

Boehner wants apology from McCartney:  President Obama on Wednesday awarded McCartney the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song – a lifetime achievement award given by the Library of Congress. Upon receiving the award, McCartney deadpanned, "After the last eight years, it's great to have a president who knows what a library is."

Yes it is, eat your heart out Boehner, it takes a Democrat to outshine a Repuglican any day!

President Obama knows how to handle a crisis, he doesn't need advice from a right wing nut bobble head like you, Mr. Broder:

Nothing is going to help Obama unless and until the engineers come up with a method for shutting down this gusher of pollution. He clearly couldn't prevent it, and he was slow in signaling its severity. But he owns it now and until it is over, the man who aspired to be the next John Kennedy or maybe Franklin Roosevelt will have to hope he doesn't end up as Jimmy Carter. -- David Broder, Washington Post

Also be careful, Mr. Broder, when making derogatory comments about President Jimmy Carter.  There are enough people in America who can put two and two together, who know damn well had we but heeded President Carter's advice, America would not be in the energy abyss we're in today.  Right-wing nuts and right wingbags such as yourself trashed and continue to trash a man who was good and is good for America.  Go peddle your dirt somewhere else.

Another example of those on the right having no respect for age and difference of opinion:

Kill a Turk and Rest by Uri Avnery, Tikkun and:

86-year-old Uri Avnery, for the trouble he caused by speaking out against the deadly flotilla raid and the blockade, was attacked by an angry gang of right-wing Israelis. -- "The Assault on Avnery: The Government Is Drowning Us All; Uri Avnery Attacked by Rightist Thugs."  Parts of this article were published in Ma'ariv, Israel's second largest newspaper.
