Iran might be developing a nuclear weapon

Tony Blankley

This pet peeve is from the Friday, February 19, 2010 broadcast of Left, Right & Center on KCRW-89.9FM.

A most amusing event recently, the UN announced that now they have some evidence that Iran might be trying to develop a nuclear weapon. And this was considered to be pretty big news. Of course, we on the Right have been talking about this since about 2002.

that an accident happens and they blow themselves to kingdom come!  Hope there are enough virgins waiting to greet them!

Iran is using it for peaceful

Iran is using it for peaceful purposes we have nothing to worry about. I do not know why Obama is even worrying about it. I say just leave those poor mistreated people alone.

Well I was surprised.....

NOT!!! I was surprised that we 'allowed' the media to keep us from admitting there WAS Nukes being worked on over there. But just goes to show just how far the Libs and their media will go to help our enemies while keepingthe REAL truth quiet!

Oh come on Walter! Don't

Oh come on Walter! Don't start with that "liberal media" crap! The mainstream news media has one overwhelming bias and that is sensationalism. If Iran is building nuclear weapons then that is a sensational story and there is no reason why any news outlet wouldn't hype it. 

Of course Tony didn't say they ARE building nuclear weapons, now did he? If you actually read the post, instead of reading into it, you'll see he said that the UN has SOME evidence that Iran MIGHT be TRYING to develop a nuclear weapon. I've heard few people in or out of the media deny that Iran might be developing nuclear technology, so this doesn't seem like big news to me, but "might be" isn't "is" and no one is really sure what they're doing or how far along they are. 

And why the hell do you feel the need to call me a traitor and insult my patriotism, just because I may have some different political philosophies than you? What would us "Libs" have to gain by keeping an Iranian nuclear program under wraps? Do you honestly think we're that vindictive and suicidal? Have you put any thought at all into what you're saying? What exactly do you think my motivations are? Do you seriously think I'm trying to blow us up? Show some respect!

Sorry

for putting you with the other Lib I have to 'live' with, Nancy Pelosi, one who IS vendictive and vengeful. But she has made it hard for me to see any of the Liberals with any other lens as she takes up so much of everything national (and local, since she lives too close to me). Please accept my apologies. You and any liberall out there are just as patriotic as anyone.

As far as the media keeping things 'out of the public eye', I do find it funny that even the media is slow to hold Obama to his own promises, to keep Congress to theirs, and etc. They (the 'media') keep under reporting the unemployed in this country, and to make things 'worse' allow the Government to do so. I know politics are not easy to get things done when there are two parties fighting for control of an issue, but the Democrats had the WHOLE government under control with NO chance of NOT losing any vote they put on the floor. To me, they did exactly what the Republicans did when they were in charge, look to how much they could rape from us po' folk, and line their pockets in teh meanwhile. The only 'change' I have seen is which politician is getting MY tax dollars!

 

So there it is, let me knkow what you think about that poll (another 'Stat', isn't it?).

I don't know what media you

I don't know what media you pay attention to, but even the "liberal" news I hear is constantly pointing out where Obama and Congress are falling short.

As for the Democrats controlling the Senate, you have a poor understanding of the Democratic party if you think that makes any difference when it comes to getting a vote through. Many of the Democrats are just as conservative as Republicans in most respects (in fact the whole party has moved to the right a good deal). Sure most Democrats believe we need to make changes to improve our country, but when it comes to what those changes are and how they get implemented, there's no clear consensus. That filibuster-proof majority may have looked nice on paper, but it was never a reality. Democrats have never had the same kind of party-line cohesiveness that you see in the Republican party. 

I don't know what media you have been watching.

But the republican party has always never been on the same page. Mcain and the gang of 14, 7 republicans and 7 democrats have always done there own thing. Mcain has gotten a few things right I like McCain but sometimes on big issues he sides with the democrats. Same with Lindsey Grahmnesty.

On the big bills the democrats have always caved to Nancy and Harry. There are no moderate or conservative democrats. They will cave on this healthcare bill. We can only hope that the democrats lose both houses and the presidency to so this horrible bill can be defeated.

Are you kidding me?

Are you kidding me? Nancy and Harry  are caving in to the conservative Dems just as much or more than the other way around. And there are plenty of conservative Democrats. It was Democratic opposition that prevented a single-payer system from being put on the table for consideration and the public option was killed by Democrats, not Republicans. Now it is Democrats that are holding up the bill because they want stronger anti-abortion language in it. The current healthcare bill is actually very close to Republican proposed plans from the past, in many ways.

Nancy is not really caving.

Nancy is not really caving. In the end she will get what she wants. The only reason those democrats right now are against the healhcare is because they fear for there jobs. If they vote for it then they know they are doomed. This is a bad bill period and any fool can see it. The only reason single payer and public options were killed were for fear of not getting re elected. If those democrats thought for one second that they would get re elected voting for it then it would happen.

 

But take the stimulus bill passed. Take the jobs bill passed. Take most of the bills that have passed and most of them passed with overwhelmingly democratic support.

 

God I would love to get you on my forums just to shake things up.

And the only reason why most Republicans are against it is because they fear for their jobs. Everyone's just playing politics.

Maybe so at least you are learning.

One more time....

THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A REPUBLICAN AND A DEMOCRAT! NOT ONE IOTA

Amen

Walter I have been consistantly saying the same thing for YEARS!

What difference there is is

What difference there is is very little. Also it depends on what is is.
