Daniel:

First, do you believe that oil prices would still be around $28.00 to $30.00 a barrel if the Iraq war wouldn’t have happened?  If so, you are as moronic as you sound on the radio.

Second, the next time someone wants to actually compare George W to a previous president (G. Cleveland in this case) to support his argument – based on facts something you don’t understand – please don’t change the rules of the discussion.  Your comment is and has always been – “Worst president EVER”.  That means since the beginning of the presidency – right?  You debunked his argument saying you can’t compare apples and oranges – two different times.  WHAT?????  However, another caller started down that path and you actually brought up Truman – although I don’t know why.  So which is it – can compare or can’t.  Historians will judge W as being a man who actually keeps his word and treats the presidency with the honor and integrity that it deserves, not to mention that we have not been attacked on this soil since 9/11 – I know you don’t think that that is any way related to actually keeping the jihadists occupied on foreign soil – no, no correlation exists when it favors the president – move along folks, nothing to see here.

At least do me this favor so I can contain what little blood pressure stability I have on Saturday mornings, either 1) Say W is the worst president in the last 30 years or 2)  Allow comparisons of previous presidents back to inception – which if you think some of those guys weren’t worse then you should have yourself checked by your GP.

Since you are a “mess with everyone’s life” democrat you will like this.  I think the government should make radio show hosts like you 1) be required to take a course in history, which you obviously haven’t 2) take an economics course – which with your oil statement about the Iraq war you obviously don’t understand world markets 3) run a factcheck from factcheck.org before going on air so you can’t tell half-truths (if we’re lucky).

BTW – Where did you get the phrase “drive by bloviator”.  Rhetorical question of course, because I know where you got it – RL.  Do you have an original idea?  Original ideas propel one’s career – see Glenn Beck, who I believe used to be at your very radio station, you know the one where you still broadcast from on Saturdays.

Lastly, if you think that Senator Obama will not be hurt by the Wright debacle – which by the way is the true way to use the word debacle, not when speaking of Iraq – you are sadly mistaken.  I sincerely hope he wins so that Senator McCain will be the next president.

I’ve written you before. Again, the only time I agree with you is on Father’s day when you actually make sense.  You extol the virtues of family and how being a dad has shaped your life and for that matter, the lives of your sons.  Kudos to you for at least being a wonderful family man.  However, I really don’t understand or want to understand your way of thinking when it comes to politics, the economy, or the place in history that one of the greatest men, namely W, will occupy.
