John Gibson: “The Rules Apply Both Ways.”

Keith Olbermann is already trying to blame this weekend’s murder of George Tiller on the case pro-lifers make against legalized abortion in an effort to avoid discussing what abortion actually is.  In this case, talk show hosts at the low-ratings nutwork are blaming Bill O’Reilly’s coverage of Tiller’s abortion practices for Tiller’s murder.  Well, kudos to John Gibson for turning Olbermann’s “logic” against him by pointing out that under Olbermann’s logic, MSNBC would be responsible for death of military recruiter, Private William Long.

Of course both statements are absurd.  Neither Fox News nor MSNBC are responsible for murder.  Common sense tells us that the shooters are responsible.  Unfortunately, common sense is a rare commodity at MSNBC these days.

Thanks for posting this. That young soldier had just finished boot camp and was simply doing his job — being available to talk to young people about his experiences in uniform. God rest his soul.

The President has yet to offer sympathy to his family; MSNBC snubbed his slaughter by a coward who was converted to Islam in prison. Makes the no-Gitmo-prisoners-in-our-backyard advocates look pretty smart, huh?

This angers me to no end. The double standards and hypocrisy are rendering me speechless these days. All I can do at this point is pray to God that the majority of our country realizes how scary this one man is making our entire world–and vote him out ASAP

Thanks for posting this–it did make me feel better.
