No one supports Democrat doctrine in the numbers they support conservatives (free markt.), so This administration is just drooling to have FCC FORCE the fairness doctrine.

The Dems ONLY KNOW HOW TO FORCE their opinion on others. Fascists. They know what you should think, eat, vote, live, and listen to...They are right any other opinion is wrong.

Talking to liberals is kind of like beating your head against the wall.It is pointless and painful at the same time. Us crazy right wingers stirring up the nut jobs again? I remember long before talk radio President Lincoln was assassinated, wonder who got John Wilkes Booth all stirred up.Rush and Sarah weren't even born yet. When John Hinckley Jr. attempted the assassination on President Reagan he claimed he was in love with Jody Foster and he wanted to get her attention.I can't remember one person telling Ms. Foster to tone it down.Friggin hypocrites with a capital "H". There is nothing logical in their world.It is so friggin frustrating to know half this country is totally illogical.

As usual, another completely irresponsible, unchecked story from the MSM. Democrats have repeatedly used "targets" in campaign literature. Peter Fenn suggested Barack Obama needed an Oklahoma City-style tragedy to reconnect with people. Is that not hyped rhetoric?
The lies, obfuscation and subterfuge continue with the hopelessly biased media. Republicans are routinely threatened. Just ask Rep. Eric Cantor, whose office was shot up by an anti-Semite. Not good enough for the print media. The story just doesn't have legs if it doesn't involve a Democrat.
There have been so many misstatements and untruths in the reporting of this tragic incident it's difficult to know where to begin.
To suggest rhetoric causes people to go out and commit homicide is absurd.
The truth is, no one knows why the shooter did what he did. To conflate his actions with a highly charged political culture is beyond irresponsible.
Speaking of lies, the story about Eric Cantor's office being 'shot up by an anti-Semite' seems to be one of them.

BRAVO! Brown is a disgrace to this state , run him out next election!
I second that!

He panders to the lowest common denominator. He is hypocrite with a capitol H.

What the hell has he done? Nothing running around making laws to support people who identify as VICTIMS! He does NOT support al taxpayers, no.

Sad and sick as it is, this country has a long history of this type of behavior. It will happen again. We don't have the will to change. We'll forget about this before it can sink it and cause any introspection. Yell and point fingers all you want. It doesn't matter. Nothing will change. We don't know how.
Spoken like goofball Dr. Phil (not a doctor)....

You and people like you have a weak self image grow some!

While the guy was crazy - and the heated rhetoric (95% of which comes from the right)- created an atmosphere where the shooting was all but inevitable, the bigger issue here is why this guy had an automatic weapon that he could legally carry concealed. The gun culture is more to be condemnded for this episode than the hate-talk culture. There needs to be a weapons ban on weapons like these that have no legitimate purpose other than to kill lots of people fast; they are not legitimate weapons of self-defense, just of mass murder. The NRA is the true force of evil that stands behind this horrible episode.
You are either clueless or dishonest and I suspect both.

Obama said "If they bring a knife to the fight I will bring a gun". Yet all of the people are blaming the right. It shows the extent of how dishonest and hypocritical your being in your criticism of her to ignore all the other comments by politicians. This is a crime committed by a psychotic killer not a political thinker.
How about this comment by liberal democrat in October 2010 while campaigning: "That [Republican candidate Rick Scott] down there that's running for governor of Florida," Mr. Kanjorski said. "Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him. He stole billions of dollars from the United States government and he's running for governor of Florida. He's a millionaire and a billionaire. He's no hero. He's a damn crook. It's just we don't prosecute big crooks."
Are you kidding me? you really think you are being honest or rational to criticize the NRA? Give me a break Hypocrite!
