    This is a good perspective

    "The President is merely the most important among a large number
    of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the
    degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his
    efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested
    service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary
    that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and
    this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong
    as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American
    citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no
    criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President,
    right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally
    treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be
    spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell
    the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else."

    How true and ballanced. Too bad so many aren't so incined, or jaded by their bias.

    Maybe congress should read and UNDERSTAND this. Then they would chastise someone for telling the public that he lies!!!

    If I could meet any one person...living or dead....it would be Teddy Roosevelt. The more I learn about this man, the more I like him.

    Yeah, Teddy but what if he is half black? Then you are a racist if you say anything bad about him - right or wrong!
