Andrew was a big fat cow who should have thought about his wife and kids before publicizing that video. Obviously, the stress of realizing what he had done to his family probably played a big part in his heart attack but his widow doesn't get to profit from his death. Sherrod still deserves to be compensated for all she went through as a consequence of his actions. Debts don't disappear when you die.
Tell me exactly what Breitbart did to Sherrod.

I doubt you even know the facts of the issue

Imposing sanctions doesn't make the President look weak dimwit; it shows he's using effective measures to make Russia pay for its actions. Do you think that we should get into a military confrontation with someone as unpredictable as Putin who controls nuclear weapons?
Once again Carol; what did your hero George W do when Putin invaded the Republic of Georgia?

W imposed sanctions on Russia over Georgia. 3 months later when Obama was elected he promptly removed the sanctions then sent HiIlary to off a 'reset'

All that did was encourage Putin to retain a part of Georgia and invade Crimea.

Obama thinks his job is to raise money and play golf because he has no rational foreign or domestic policy

Bush tried to make nice with Putin,and it failed.

Romney knew it,hell,even Palin knew it.

Everybody but Oblamer seemed to know it.

Andrew Breitbart made a mistake. Based on a two-minute video excerpt of Shirley Sherrod's speech at an NAACP dinner last year, he accused her of practicing racism as a federal employee. He neglected to mention that in the excerpt, she was clearly talking about events in a different job 20 years ago. And when the rest of the video turned up, it proved that her story was about transcending her old racial resentment.

and then he lied about making a 'mistake'.

the right wing media never admit that they make 'mistakes'. they don't have to. everyone gives them a pass because lying is what they do.

The Poisonous Bush Legacy for U.S.-Russian Relations

Putin was the first foreign leader to contact Bush after 9/11 to offer support to the U.S., and he accepted the creation of a significant U.S. military presence in Central Asia on the assumptions that doing so would win American goodwill and that the U.S. presence was not going to continue indefinitely. All of this was repaid with a series of provocative actions starting with the expansion of NATO into the Baltics and the U.S. withdrawal from the ABM Treaty, and things went downhill from there as all of the bad old habits of the 1990s took over. Bush did abuse early Russian cooperation (as he abused relationships with many other cooperative and allied states), and then spent the rest of his time in office seeming to go out of his way to pursue policies that were certain to wreck bilateral relations.

The Ukraine crisis is another example of Obamaís responding to a foreign event in a way that most Americans donít support. I donít think the majority that doesnít want the U.S. to be very involved in Ukraine would be pleased no matter how well Obama managed that involvement, because they see no reason for the involvement in the first place. The ďtougherĒ that Obama acts in response to Russian behavior, the more likely it is that Obama will continue to lose support for his foreign policy for the simple reason that he will be acting against the wishes of most Americans.

and those who want more can't even explain why. at least coherently.

Your link is simply a phony looney left outrage that is totally false.

The real story behind the video was not about Shirley Sherrod or an edited video. It was when she told her story about her racism the black audience cheered. Like all looney leftists they ignored the real story and focused on an edited video which purportedly showed Sherrod to be a racist. They all missed the audience reaction to her story which was racist and disgusting.

BREITBART: ITíS NOT ABOUT SHIRLEY SHERROD; ITíS ABOUT NAACP ATTACKING TEA PARTY

Breitbart's argument is simple and straightforward: Regardless of what else is in Sherrod's speech, the first video released on BigGovernment.com features Sherrod telling a tale of racism that is received by the NAACP audience with laughter and cheers. They werenít cheering redemption; they were cheering discrimination. Upon hearing the cheers, Sherrod fails to offer any immediate clarification and even smiles right along with them.

The Tsar Ivan the III from Bysanthy would be disappointed in you.

Personally, your avatar looks like a Chicken Hawk to me, Boris. You really should consider using a Turkey Vulture as is suits your leftwing ideology much better, Boris.

Sanctions were lifted in 2010.

Hardly promptly after his election.

so you go to the 'source' of an edited video.

you have to be kidding. i'm usually not one to throw out disparaging remarks, but....you're not all too bright, are you?

so how about a transcript of the WHOLE video. see if you can find that smart guy.

Bill O'Reilly apologizes to Shirley Sherrod for 'not doing my homework'

Fox News host Bill OíReilly offered a rare mea culpa Wednesday, apologizing for airing a controversial tape of a speech given by a black U.S. Dept. of Agriculture official that was edited to make it appear she was racist.
