You have supported most everything the Dems and Obama have done. You are an admitted Dem partisan. You can't hide behind your new found non-partisan look.

It is quite fitting for how people like you have drank the koolaid and see no fault, supporting everything Obama says and supporting Spend Spend Spend by the Dems in Congress. Tax tax tax is on its way. You will support that as well, I am sure.

Cite please....all of my partisan links!

I never said I was non-partisan..but I dont flood the site with bullship partisan op eds on a daily basis (or weekly basis...or even monthly basis) . NO ONE does to the same extent as you.

I offer my own opionions. I was critical of components of the ARRA. I was critical of components of Obama's detainee policly. I like the transparency I have seen compared to the previsous admin, but said it still doesnt go far enough. I have said I like some components in the various heallth reform proposals but not others.

I speak for myself and dont rely on op eds.

Yea, I am sure it is not enough of a far left socialist agenda. Eh... me, I am not big on government of your sort.

One AARP press release that was released solely to refute the bogus charges in you WSJ op eds about mandatory euthanasia counseling for seniors...and that was reaffrimed by FactCheck, Snopes and PoliFacts

All biased and the WSJ op ed not....right!

It was only one article and issue that you addressed. I conceed that. But as I stated you just don't like the messenger. No big deal really. I don't support yours. I asked you to provide support for other issues that the Demoncrats are pushing for our great grand children to pay for. You declined.

Someone should remind these CLOWNS that they are in charge now and have been for more than 2 years.

House Orders Up Three Elite Jets
Last year, lawmakers excoriated the CEOs of the Big Three automakers for traveling to Washington, D.C., by private jet to attend a hearing about a possible bailout of their companies.

But apparently Congress is not philosophically averse to private air travel: At the end of July, the House approved nearly $200 million for the Air Force to buy three elite Gulfstream jets for ferrying top government officials and Members of Congress.

The Air Force had asked for one Gulfstream 550 jet (price tag: about $65 million) as part of an ongoing upgrade of its passenger air service.

But the House Appropriations Committee, at its own initiative, added to the 2010 Defense appropriations bill another $132 million for two more airplanes and specified that they be assigned to the D.C.-area units that carry Members of Congress, military brass and top government officials.

Because the Appropriations Committee viewed the additional aircraft as an expansion of an existing Defense Department program, it did not treat the money for two more planes as an earmark, and the legislation does not disclose which Member had requested the additional money.

Aren't these the same guys that castigated the Automakers for arriving on jets?

^Came here to say this.
Got sucked into the Redux/Merc banter. Wow.
From the few pages I read, I don't see a whole lot of political discussion - more of an argument about whose newspapers/websites/preiodicals are more right. I was hoping for "I agree with the WSJ/AARP/insert-article's-publisher-here because..." Not that I consider myself at all competent to defend my political bent as eloquently as I would like, but now I leave disenchanted.

Carry on.

You answered your own question before asking it.

Not to mention that the first line in his quote asked his question he asked it.
