    Should the president be held to a higher standard since he is the leader of this country?

    Nice thought. But....no. Society has been coarsening our discourse for a couple of generations now. Supreme Court justices used to never speak out about politics. But now they do (on the left). Former Presidents used to stay out of the limelight and keep their mouths shut (unless they are on the left). The media used to be Cronkite Nad Huntley & Brinkley.....no they hire former administration official sand call them reporters. And when they are accused of bias, they feign ignorance of the charge. The left leads the way in this coarsening of our society as always. And when someone on the right finally hits back (and that is *ALL* that Trump does really), well, my goodness, you would have thought Hitler was elected. The fascists of the left (and do recall that Nazi is the German shortening of words for National Socialists and much of their platform was socialist by nature).

    Bush tried to rise above the BS from the left and many of us lost respect for him for his silence. He would simply not fight back against the propaganda that was thrown out against Republicans by the Progressives and the media.

    The world is different now. The left has succeeded in changing things. Congratulations. Obama and his Progressive administration brought on a backlash. You reap what you sow.

    @MWBATL You’re missing the big picture. If you critically examine Obama’s core philosophy he’s deeply committed to basic Marxist principles. Read Lenin’s “What is to be done?” Obama envisions himself the leader of the vanguard energizing revolutionaries to convert the working class to Marxism. He’s after enduring power, both as an elected President & now the defacto leader of the Democrat Party, but he ultimately wants to revise all our country was founded upon rewritten into some sort of socialist utopia crafted by the intelligentsia. If it takes a bit of anarchy & rioting in the streets so be it because the ends justifies the means.

    Does this mean you are ok with that guy in Florida sending bombs to CNN, Obama and other Democrats?

    Of course not! How do you get *that* from my comments? However, using words to fight the Progressive left's incessant lying seems quite acceptable to me

    Because you said: "Obama and his Progressive administration brought on a backlash. You reap what you sow."
    Trump "fighting back" as you call it, inspired that person to send those bombs.

    That is nothing but conjecture and speculation of the WORST kind. Did Bernie Sanders cause that other nutcase to go shoot Republicans because of his incendiary rhetoric? I must have missed you and the mainstream media blaming him and calling for Sanders to apologize......Trump is NOT at fault for that and he is correct to call out the media for being so "over-the-top" in their commentary. People have compared Trump to Hitler.....seriously? SERIOUSLY? Do you believe that? Maybe others need to look at what they are saying out loud? I think it is THEIR flame-throwing that has so enraged many Americans.......

    By the way, do you defend the liberal push to re-elect Bob Menendez in NJ? Kindly compare Menendez to Roy Moore and explain to me why Menendez is better or superior....other than being liberal. It is precisely THIS kind of hypocrisy ....when media is screaming about Roy Moore but completely silent about Bob Menendez....that so infuriates the average American. It is nothing except partisan politics AT ITS WORST. I was never sure about Moore's indiscretions, but Menendez' have been proven in court.....it just did not meet the higher bar for corruption. But where are the Women's marches on Trenton to unseat him?

    ...and right on cue, an editorial in the WSJ today about Menendez and Moore....it ends this way

    Rank-and-file Democrats can show they’re a moral match for Alabama Republicans if they decide to vote for Mr. Hugin or stay home. Otherwise, spare us the lectures about the moral consequences of Donald Trump.

    Honestly, that is VERY good advice to the media and liberals everywhere.

    If you don't see that the mail bomber is a Trump supporter and was inspired by Trump to carry out his attack then I don't know what else to say to you. Trump has been calling CNN "fake news." He says fake news is the enemy of the people and his followers chant "CNN sucks" at his campaign rallies. Then an outspoken Trump supporter sends bombs to CNN. How do you not understand that?

    CNN reporters and commentators have called a Trump and his supporters racist, claimed he radicalized more people than ISIS, called him a traitor and constantly refer to him as a lier....their liberal guests say things like they dream of blowing up the White House, that they want to send troops to get Trump, and if Republicans win there will be blood in the streets....CNN has not only never denounced this language they have defended ANTIFA as legitimate protestors despite their assuaging people and destroying property.....just to name a few off the top of my mind. How can you not see that kind of vicious attack constantly will mobilize some crazy people to action? If you cannot see that, I don’t know what to say....

    That wasn't said on CNN and im not even sure who this person is. I would actually be more interested in the other alleged comments. That someone claimed to dream of blowing up the white house and that they want to send troops to go get the President. Those are pretty serious comments that are borderline illegal and would at least cause a secret service investigation.

    I’m not sure why it matters where it was said, only that it was said.

    The claim I responded to was that guests on CNN are saying they dream of blowing up the white house and sending the troops to remove the President from power and that CNN did not denounce those words. I would personally just like to see where that was said on CNN and who said it considering the serious nature of the words.

    You may be referring to what actor James Cromwell said. It's already been proven on here that those statements were not made on CNN. So do you have any actual evidence of liberal guests on CNN saying those things?

    @A Love Supreme ...Still waiting......I guess that means you are as hypocritical as the rest of the Democrat politicians out there. Sad, I was hoping for better from you.
