    Re: Chris Mathews Calls West Point an "Enemy camp"

    Breaking News! Commentator uses common phrase to describe a generally politically opposed crowd to the President.

    In other news rookie Linebacker Brian Orakpo said when the Dallas Cowboys visit the Washington Redskins in December they're going to be entering enemy territory and their defense is going to rip Tony Romo's head off. Brian Orakpo was then arrested for threats of murder towards Tony Romo and the FBI is investigating season ticket holders for terrorist connection due to Orakpo's admission they're "enemy territory".

    And in other news Chris Johnson was found running away from the cops today, showing the announcer was amazingly apt in describing his speed as "Running away from the cops" fast.



    Seriously...really?

    Saying someone is entering "enemy territory" when going to a place that is generally opposed to their views...be it in sports, politics, whatever...is hardly a giant offense and isn't that unusual of a phrase. Poor choice of words? Sure, but not what its being made out to be. If George Bush was going to speak before a traditionally black college you could describe it the same way....would that mean the commentator was proposing those black men and women were America's enemy?

    Since when are people who disagree politically......now considered "the enemy"?

    This is a big story, as we are now about to draw battle lines, and we could very soon face another civil war!

    No, it is not, this country is becoming more divided by the day, and talking heads in the comfort and safety of their televison studios are ramping up the hatred. To dismiss this, is to dismiss the growing divide that is forming all across this great land, and that is dangerous! This is not the first time this man, and his network has smeared and angered a large swath of america, and the same is true on the right, this is not funny, it is not cute anymore, it is dangerous, and we need to pay attention!

    Come back down to earth please. he did not smear any one, he suggested, accurately, that West Point cadets and staff are largely conservative in their politics, and as such, it is not going to be as receptive to him as a more liberal place. This is no way speaks poorly of West Point, or any one at West Point. There was zero slight of any one.

    You do not know this, and you cannot possibly make this assertion, you are simply guessing. It is well known that young people are more liberal then they are conservative, this comes with experience. To suggest that these people do not respect their CIC, is just an ignorant and divisive comment, and there is no excuse for it.

    Now HOW IS IT, that I am not securely grounded, it is you who appear to be floating around?

    Woah woah woah! Who said they did not respect their CIC? Not Mathews. You would have to stretch what he was trying to say all out of recognition to get that.

    "It seems like in this case, there isn't a lot of excitement," Matthews said. "I watched the cadets, they were young kids - men and women who were committed to serving their country professionally it must be said, as officers. And, I didn't see much excitement. But among the older people there, I saw, if not resentment, skepticism. I didn't see a lot of warmth in that crowd out there. The president chose to address tonight and I thought it was interesting. He went to maybe the enemy camp tonight to make his case. I mean, that's where Paul Wolfowitz used to write speeches for, back in the old Bush days. That's where he went to rabble rouse the "we're going to democratize the world" campaign back in '02. So, I thought it was a strange venue."

    I think this says it all, especially the comment about "a strange venue" where else would you go to announce you are sending more military people to war....."strange venue"....really?
