An even-handed column, Jack. The difference, however, is that Democrats under Bush were screaming at protests because people were dying by the thousands in a needless war. Republicans under Obama are screaming at protests because they don't like paying taxes and don't care about the millions that are uninsured. Surely killing warrants more screaming than taxing? I think Democrats find it a bit disingenuous that most Republicans (yourself excluded, Jack) gave the Bush administration a free pass on wars, wiretapping, Katrina mismanagement, etc., yet are now are spewing forth endless venom at the President, whose gaffes do not even begin to approach those of GWB. What we're hearing at the town halls seems more like blind, unproductive "we're pissed we lost" anger rather than any cogent rebuttal.

Re: “Healthcare for America Now Answers Rightwing Smears

"The sky is falling! The sky is falling!"

Thank you, neocons above and your ilk, for proving these past few weeks with your childish antics, hand-wringing and outright lies about universal healthcare that all you truly care about is your wallet.

That to you, bloody, senseless preemptive war (Iraq) is A-OK, whereas the novel idea that everyone might have free access to healthcare in the country you claim to love is "Communist."

I do not claim Obama is perfect but with his fight for universal healthcare he is trying to help a large section of the population that either can't afford healthcare or does not qualify for it (yes, that includes quite a few Republicans). That you claim that universal healthcare is somehow leading our country to destruction is not only un-Christian (for who preached about helping the poor and downtrodden more than Jesus?) but also demonstrates a lack of judgment and a flair for fearmongering...which I guess is not surprising given your party's penchant for such things.

Re: “Violent crime in South Carolina

As an educator, I am sickened by Arthur Lawrence's statement "The public school system has failed [criminals] and destined them for a life of crime." To attack those who work long hours for low pay in some very difficult school environments is needless and counterproductive. I know of no teacher that is not passionate about what they do and who does not make it their goal for each and ever one of their students to succeed. If you're so anxious to place some blame for the outrageous crime in the Lowcountry, why not place the blame where it's due: squarely on the shoulders of the parents of these criminals! These are parents who would allow their children to routinely blow off schoolwork, to socialize (read: loiter) anywhere at all hours, to permit their children to openly disrespect their teachers (and even cry "racism" when teachers attempt to rightly discipline their child), and to eventually allow their children to throw away their golden opportunity for a free, quality education. You, Mr. Lawrence, are misguided and blind to the root of the issue. The problems are outside the school walls, not within them.
