Ann Coulter - "Israel's response is disproportionate" ...

by Edward ODaniel / July 21, 2006 4:43 AM PDT

I knew the events in the Middle East were big when the New York Times devoted nearly as much space to them as it did to a New York court ruling last week rejecting gay marriage.

Some have argued that Israel's response is disproportionate, which is actually correct...

Yep, she really said it, and the rest of the article is also pretty much on the money and to the point.

in even one instance.

It is easy to point to the party of the President BUT that ignores the party in control of congress that actually has to support of choose not to support the president.

I suggest you read the response to your post (and please do check on the facts as I cited them).

You're splitting hairs as usual
by Josh K / July 22, 2006 10:12 AM PDT

She said ''never'' and spoke of Democrats in general. She didn't make exceptions for occasions when the Democrats were in the White House. Those statements were untrue as I illustrated.

Me splitting hairs? How so?
by Edward ODaniel / July 22, 2006 11:37 AM PDT

Coulter indicated Democrats in general and it is you trying to claim a Republican administration hampered by a Democrat controlled congress pulled out of Lebanon.

It was the DEMOCRATS who held majorities in congress who left no other option.

Ann is aware that there are some few old time Democrats such as Miller and Lieberman who are exceptions to the rule just as Truman was an exception to the rule and thus ostracized by his own party.

by Edward ODaniel / July 23, 2006 10:38 AM PDT

but some of the time even they get it right because from a political point of view NOT doing something about Grenada because of the medical students there. They were also supportive because they saw it as something to take the fact that they wouldn't support Reagan's desire to deal with Lebanon off the pages of the friendly papers.

Far as Tripoli, the same Democrats had to do something because the Gulf of Sirte naval clash was reminiscent of the Pueblo incident that had cost them a lot of political capital and '86 was after all an election year.

When forced by politics and the ever popular "public opinion polls" Democrats run from the big ones if they can manage with a little one.

...that Coulter was either mistaken (unlikely as I assume she has some knowledge of American History) or lying when she said Democrats always run from a fight.

Thanks, that's all I was getting at.

They were running from fights each time and simply tripped over another they couldn't run from. Had they any other chioce than political suicide they would have run out on them too.

There actually is a logical connection this time. Now, you need to learn to distinguish reality from wishful thinking.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
