IMPORTANT CORRECTION!

Several conservative bloggers have been repeating this misinformation (which they probably read on other rightwing blogs and news sites):

"We do know from every media source that three representatives from the White House will attend Brown's funeral tomorrow. I think that at least one of those representatives went to school with Michael Brown's mother back in high school.

In contrast, there was not a single representative from the Obama administration at the recent burial of Major General Greene at Arlington National Cemetery."


The above claim is TOTALLY WRONG. This is what happens in the right wing blog sphere. They read a false claim and it spreads like wildfire.

The fact is that President Obama's cabinet officer, Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel attended Major General Greene's funeral.

Will the right wing blogs and news sites retract their abominable lie?

Of course not.

"Right-wing media outlets criticized the Obama administration over news that three administration officials planned to attend shooting victim Michael Brown's funeral, citing the myth that the White House failed to send representation to the funeral of Maj. Gen. Harold Greene, who was killed in Afghanistan -- In reality, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel attended the two star general's service."

LOL. However, Thomas is easy to put back onto the track. And he's a very useful engine. Something I learned from the kids.

there is another side to look at these also. if we acknowledge that poor decisions by a president can be costly then whose poor decisions will be the costliest both in terms of money and lives?

Griper: In that case, we're hozed either way.

Oh, I don't know...let's ask the people of Iraq and then everyone in this country who owns(ed) a 401k or pension fund, savings account or stock in the market or house or had the misfortune to be poor in New Orleans in 2005.

Shaw: Are you referring to a people who are fighting now to form a republic because they are free of a tyrannical dictator?

Are you talking about people that were caught up when the government agencies overseen by Democrats (Fannie and Freddie) collapsed in the subprime mess brought on by asshats trying to legislate loans for people who didn't qualify based on some half-assed organization like the voter fraud org, ACORN, former employer of The Marxist as a community agitator?

And are you talking about the city (under the Democrats) that failed to load them onto busses and the governor (another Democrat) that failed to get the shelters going when the mayor (a Democrat) failed?

Maybe if you'd put the blame on the people who caused the problem rather than repeating the same tired-assed "Blame Bush" mantra, then we could solve things.
