Regardless of whether you agree with this guy or not, and regardless of whether you think such comments from an elected official are appropriate, this video of Congressman Pete Stark's recent rant on Capitol Hill should be enlightening:
Among other comments: that President Bush just "likes to blow things up" and derives "amusement" from war casualties.
I'm not particularly offended by the statements made - I understand the guy's emotions ran away from him. He was chastised for referring to the President in a personal manner and that's enough.
It made me ponder the devotion some have to this children's health care proposal. I don't know anything about the proposal and thus don't have a strong opinion about it, but cooler heads should prevail on stuff like this.
What do you think?
