    Really....I am so sick of our politicians using their time on SPORTS ISSUES. They are games. Let the players work it out. Can we maybe work out some important ****? Like why I have to work for 5 months to pay my tax bill?

    Long as we're fair, Gentlemen, I would agree with your assessments. Long as the rules are played fairly on both sides, I agree.

    But when Sheila Jackson Lee is on the House Floor with "I know he is not the kind of owner the NFL needs." She called on the NFL to "do the right thing" and "have some integrity."

    Now...Rush is a private citizen and where do we draw the line? Is it not responsible for Rep King to ask Goodell about this matter....to highlight how wrong Democrats were to react as they did? Isn't this getting a tad underblown?

    I mean, we've got auto manufacturers being grilled about how they got to the hearings that will seal their fates? We've got attacks on the insurance co's, banks, financial institutions, FoxNews, individuals such as Rush or Sean Hannity...where exactly does it stop?

    And with Dems promising they were going to lead without the partisanship and childish antics....I think it about time a Repub steps up in Congress and asks some business owners questions WE'D like answered.....like...do you accept this kind of criticism when vetting potential owners? Indeed, does the government or SHOULD the government be vetting private ownership whatsoever.

    So....if both of you were upset about Jackson Lee and just as concerned for her Texas constituencies...I'm with you. If yer unconcerned for why this is an issue in the first place and making the "Iowa didnt elect him for this" argument, I believe that's a tad late to the table.

    Sheila Jackson Lee is a bad joke of a representative. I can't stand her. A lot of our representatives grandstand in this nature. It's not a partisan issue.

    Well, let's step back from auto assuming King is being partisan here and ask if we should be asking these questions. I'd be bi-partisan interested in this issue, it's getting a tad dangerous when we're attacking private citizens on the House Floor, we've defeated nations in wars who carry out those policies.

    Look to how the individual is demonized, look to how that carries to corporations, indeed, entire industries.....and yet some in Congress are claiming Rush is "devisive?"

    I gotta disagree, IT, I think this a very valis topic and Iowans would be best served, it's only a matter of time before one of their favorite sons are demonized. Lee and other Congresspeople started this, I think it more than appropriate King seeks to end it with pie all over the face of Reps like Lee.

    Perhaps he should have addressed Rep. Lee instead of Roger Goodell. Him scolding a private citizen is worse than Lee IMO. I can understand a politician wanting to discredit a political commentator who they believe that spreads misinformation. If you want to look to the origins of this you will need to look to the attacks on the "liberal media" that started decades ago.

    What private citizen are you talking about, Roger Goodell? King wasn't scolding, he was asking the NFL Commish some questions. If he had questioned Goodell's [personal integrity...like Lee did Limbaugh's, I could see your opinion making sense here. Right now, it doesn't.

    I can understand a politician wanting to discredit a political commentator who they believe that spreads misinformation. If you want to look to the origins of this you will need to look to the attacks on the "liberal media" that started decades ago.
    Sorry...not a good analogy. Should Lee had attacked right radio...it wouldn't have been right, but it would have fit your analogy. Someone going after "liberal media" is going after the slant the news media put on the news or current events. Wholesale different from isolating a member of the media and calling them out. As well, Lee went after Limbaugh for...not his slant on the news, your liberal media analogy once again misplaced. Lee went after Rush attempt to own a private company citing his integrity because of his political views. You aren't making good analogies here, imo, you're not defending your position either. What are you trying to say?

    Do stoke his fire - it will burn out more quickly. Keep other racists out of it, they will just add more fuel.
    That conservatives have not STRONGLY denounced Limbaugh places them in the same fireplace as Muslims who have not STRONGLY denounced bin Laden.

    that's absurd! Limbaugh is to America what OBL is to muslims? What an epic fail you have demonstrated here.
