When Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly traipse out the "Hate America Crowd"™ catchphrase to label those who disagree with the President and his policies, one wonders if they might be speaking about those (all?) within the administration who care so little for the public's gathering of the whole truth, the truth needed to make proper and rightful decisions. For in that dishonering of the American public, isn't it Bush and administration who actually hate America? You know.... by massaging the truth similarly to the way Bill and Sean run their shows; having so little faith in their fans - who allow them their humongous contracts - as to broadcast just the parts of the (mis?)information that would lead listeners to only make the decision Bill and Sean want them to make. They'll say that it's also "hating America" and "undermining our troops" to say our leaders have lied during wartime, as if pointing out a lie is the crime. Do we criminalize witnesses who are brave enough to testify truthfully to misconduct? Only if your name is Joseph Wilson. After all, who truly hates America if not those who lie to Americans while continuing a failed warring policy and reconstructing the Constitution without due process? And to say that Bush and his compatriots have not mislead and lied is, in the least, a mislead and a lie.
