You write:

"While I would be the last to defend all that our nation has done, and while I am by no means supportive of everything this administration has done (and not done)"

I am curious as to when and where have you shown any disapproval for any of the wrong doings of this Administration? In the past I have seen bashes on Bill Clinton, Sandy Berger, Hillary Clinton, yet not a peep about

- domestic spying
- US Attorney firings
- Waterboaring
- Outing CIA agents
- Katrina
- The non actions to the raping of an American citizen by KBR
- Abu Ghraib
- Voter caging

The list is too long to list everything, but these are just a few possible criminal actions that you been silent on. So I ask can that silence be construed with limited consent?

Great post! It's refreshing to see someone take a moment to thank America and recognize her greatness. America has done far more good for than world than bad. Humans are not perfect, we make mistakes. What's truly great about America is that our founding fathers recognized this when creating America and put checks and balances into place to limit our mistakes. They also provided us the tools to correct our mistakes.

It' sad that so many people are like the one who commented before me. They only focus on what we've done wrong, instead of what we do right.

To Joe,

I am sorry to rain on your parade, but I Love this country (please read my last comment on torture found on the post The Tough Ones), and I want it to be the best that it can be. My only point is this. When Bill Clinton was President, do you think that Peg or any of the Republican's would let any of the things I listed just slide? Be fair, and be honest. Do you not feel that any of this would not be a topic of how far we have slid as a country if a Democrat would of been in charge?

Now the second question is, do you deny any of the wrong doings that I have listed? Are any of the things I listed made up, or not important topics? Compare any of this to such scandals such as the Postagegate, Travelgate, White Water and all the other made up scandals of the Clinton Administration. Are any of the things I listed not important issues, or are you like a child going to deny anything that might be ugly, or uncomfortable? It is amazing that a so called second or third tier country such as South Africa could have the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to look at past mistakes and learn from the mistakes. This is a far cry from what we heard from Republicans during the 80's who kept screaming 'rule of law'. Then we have people who whole thing is to pretend mistakes and wrongdoings are not important, that is of course unless it is a Democrat. Does not what Martin Luther King ring any amount of truth with you, or any other Republican, or does it only apply to Democrats and those of the Left?

So Joe I ask you, are you one of those that Martin Luther King spoke about when he said

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."

You are silent because for some reason these things seem to not matter to you. Interesting and very foretelling of your values and principles.
