    I read as much of that steaming pile of garbage he called "The Roots of Obama's Rage" as I could stomach. It was pure tripe.

If not, probably a good time to learn if you are not too old a dog to learn the new trick or two.

    And please, perhaps you are in a position to tell your children, if you have them, what to do, but refrain from that type silliness with me...

    You have yet to assert, much less prove, anything of a particularly hypocritical nature with regards to Dinesh... maybe you could put a little effort into it, show a bit of evidence of what you portend is the truth rather that expecting us to just take an unsubstantiated opinion, one called already properly called into question, about him...eh?

    Best of luck with all that.

    Mr. Morality cheating on his wife and being indicted for breaking the law?

    Yep, that's hypocrisy to me.

    Why do you call D'Souza "Mr. Morality"?

    3. Was there not a desire on the part of the administration to maintain the false premise that Al Qaeda was on the run in the world and no longer a "real" problem?
    4. Didn't almost all facets of the administration that had a public face lie to the American people, even Obama directly in the debate in which he was disingenuously assisted by Candy Crowley leading to a false sense of what happened being given to the American people with the election imminent and thus assisted in getting him elected when it could/should well have turned the election?
    5. Don't we now know that the Administration was advised immediately that it was a terrorist attack and not a spontaneous event... or is it just you and other liberal types that are ignorant of this and all these other TRUE facts?

    I eagerly await your impending dodges...

    Oh, I am quite sure we could all be found as hypocrites in some way or another... we are all human and have failings. However, conservatives when they fall to temptation seem to take responsibility and show a bit of contriteness that most liberals don't. Take for instance the almost worshiped John Kennedy... how many affairs did this guy have? And did he step down from his position, or any of his positions? How about Bill Clinton, still vaunted as the high muckety-muck of the left... he was using his positions of power to try to force himself on women, has had many affairs and is even accused, credibly of rape and yet, and yet, do the feminist groups come down hard on him? Nooooo...so you want to talk hypocrisy? How about Ted Kennedy, drives a young lady, not his wife, off a bridge and leaves her to drown...does he report it, does he make sure he gets help, nope. How is he regarded by the left, rock star hero status...

    Being indicted, by the way, is not the same as being guilty.

    Like wrongly indicting Tom Delay of Texas, this is just a method that the left uses to strike at the right... the left, as proven in the few instances itemized above, don't really care if someone is cheating... unless he is on the wrong side of the aisle.



    Besides, you cannot slip off the hook with the charge of being a hypocrite, you were arguing that Hitchens basically mopped the floor with Dinesh... and you are just flat out wrong... I would say, for instance, in the Hitchens-D'Souza-Prager religious debate D'Souza came out on top. Youtube it and if you are truly a moderate and not of the left, if you are intellectually honest and have any ability to judge such things, you will no doubt agree and, even if you do not, you certainly cannot say Hitchens just walked all over him like you were blithely and lamely asserting previously.

    I saw that debate, actually, and nobody came out on top. D'Souza embarrassed himself by making an endless serious of facile, fallacious arguments, and Hitchens responded with (probably drunken) rants. It was lose-lose. D'Souza was able to present himself well, but that's about it.

    Obama has always had very thin skin. So it should come to no surprise that this took place. More political money probably comes from what this man did than through legal channels. He just didn't have his paperwork in order. I disagree with the bond which had to be posted for a man who turned himself in and has been cooperating with authorities.

    Bottom line is that it makes the Justice Department look that much more the Gestapo and Obama that much more petty.
