Saw Dennis Miller on FOX News touting George Bush on what a great prez he's been, and we should be thankful we haven't been attacked since 9/11, did fail to mention that four thousand plus kids died for nothing in Iraq though.Him and O'Reilly seem to be big buddies when did Mr. Miller get his fair and balanced conversion?

I allways thought Miller was a stuck up jerk. He was so smug on SNL and all he could do was read the news. His TV talk show bombed and his career was over untill he sold his soul for the lowest rung on the show biz ladder, right wing radio talk show host. He and O'Reily deserve each other.

His true knowledge of anything showed when they put him on Monday Night football. Worst broadcaster in the history of football.

Agreed, but at least at Normandy, America knew what it was fighting for.

Had Bush not removed Saddam and we had an attack traced to Saddam people would have excoriated Bush for not having removed Saddam ....if we had several terror attacks on our soil following 9/11 Bush would have been attacked for letting them happen....when we have no attacks after 9/11 Bush gets no credit at all but is still attacked!...history will be much kinder to Bush for keeping us safe at home and setting in motion the blueprint for the war on terror...which no doubt Obama will follow all the while criticizing Bush.If Bush's approach was so wrong why has Obama kept his secretary of defense on and backtracked on so many of his statements during the campaign?...I usually try to avoid politics here but it is so difficult to see the same group think on every issue expressed....kinda like going to a concert and hearing every entertainer express the same anti-Bush rant as if they are saying something insightful...Bravo to Miller for breaking with the 99% of the entertainment world!...I recognize my views wont be popular here but...hey,what the hell!.....

Hmmm, this discussion seems to going into an area that might be best discussed over in the WP.

I do try to avoid political discussions in here and i did not start this one for sure..that said,I often wonder why those in the entertainment world and mainstream media seem to speak as if they had a script....how many concerts have we all gone to where the performer feels the need to recite his list of grievances with a republican preident or any kind of conservative utterances ?I must admit it would be interesting to actually for once hear a performer say something different....express a thought like Miller did that goes against the mainstream viewpoint....what made this issue was that Miller had the gall to express a viewpoint different than the scripted liberal response.....to me it is a breath of fresh air...

The funny thing about this is the quote from an earlier post that says, "if we had not removed Saddam and he had attacked us....Bush would have been attacked for not doing anything about it"

This is the thing that is so damn funny about the Bush supporters....

They actually think that Saddam Hussein who was sitting over there with nothing but a bunch of AK-47's and a rag tag army, trying not to publicly announce to the whole world (including Iran which wanted to invade Iraq and take that place over and has forever) that he did not have any mass destruction weapons, because Bush sold that idea so well that Iraq is the same people that attacked us on 9/11. Guess what, they were not. In Georgia I would say that 90% of the people in rural areas are sold on the fact that Iraq was part of the 9/11 attacks. They dont know that they were not.

And.....if we are gonna start taking out "mean" dictators, when are we gonna invade all of Africa??????????????? Have you looked at the damn leaders there? Or anywhere else in the world who has a mean dictator.

And....hell... we attacked Iraq when North Korea and Iran are basically saying, "yeah, we are making weapons and as soon as we finish we are shooting them at you"...Doesn't seem to make sense does it?

I think the point is that nobody thought Saddam was a good guy who loves Americans, but....it turns out they sure as hell were not planning to attack us and we don't need to be starting wars (which kill thousands of people) with everyone who doesn't like us. It was just a huge screw up and when your the president, the buck stops there. Thats supposed to be why you are at the top of the food chain. Like when a company has a major screwball, the CEO is the bottom line and he is supposed to make sure that you don't have a huge screw up (like invading a country on the premise that they had weapons of mass destruction when it turned out that they did not)

and then torturing the damn prisoners because "we need to know what they know"
WOW. Thats just like when we were raising hell about our soldiers being tortured in Vietnam POW camps. I guess they just "needed to know what we knew". Thats the difference between the United States of America and these other places - WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HOLD OURSELVES TO A HIGHER STANDARD THAN THAT. or...not complain when our soldiers get tortured.

Just a couple quick points of view.

I used to like his HBO show and his stand up routines before he became right wing.

Dennis Miller was on The Daily Show one time. He congratulated Jon Stewart for satirizing both polital parties. Dennis then went on a 5 minute diatribe on the Democrats and didn't say one word about the Republicans.

Miller and Bill Mahr are about as funny as an open sore.

I'm one of the few who didn't think he was that bad on MNF. I just don't think his partners knew how to deal with his humor so he got left out on an island alot.

He was definitely funny on SNL.

Not nearly as much these days...

Wow, a list of liberals and socialists, in some cases, whining about Miller's humor. What a shock!

dennis miller continues to be a liberal in good standing on most issues...especially social issues....his sin is that he believes we are at war with a foe that wants to destroy us and he favors those who he believes understand this and act accordingly....saddam did not have WMD in the end but he did claim to be building them for years...he used chemical weapons on his own people....the israelis had to destroy his nuke reactor in 1982,he paid 25,000 to the families of suicide bombers..after 9/11 bush and many others in the senate including democrats decided this man was too large a risk to leave in power...iraq is now a democracy ,a fragile one but still a democracy....saddam had murdered and tortured hundreds of thousands.....again,millers crime is that he has opposed those who he feels dont take the threat seriously and who want to cripple our ability to fight the war on terror...he believes keeping the nation safe for the past 7 years IS an achievement and for that he is labeled a right wing kook..equated with michael moore of all people?...this dicsussion probably doesnt belong here but it was started here so.....

I think Bush is being given too much credit by some for "keeping us safe." He ignored the warnings he was given before 9/11, so the worst terrorist attack in our history took place on his watch, while he egnored warnings.

And by starting two wars, he gave anyone who wants to kill an American a much better opportunity that they would have otherwise. Why should someone who hates America try to come here to attack us when all he has to do is catch a ride to Iraq? Anyone who really wants to kill Americans can do it in his own neighborhood without having to cross an ocean and try to get into this country.

Bush claims to have foiled some plots, and maybe he has, but the idea that the only reason we haven't been attacked here is because of his vigilance is silly.

Dennis Miller is a pretty funny sometimes, but I definitely disagree with his views on Bush and the war.
