Skip to comments.Air America does not disparage our troops

I am a regular listener of Air America, and have never heard anyone disparage the troops.
Randi Rhodes, the popular daytime host, is a veteran of the Air Force and has actively lobbied for body armor and adequate supplies to protect our troops. Former and active duty members of the military frequently call into her show.
Al Franken, former morning host and current candidate for the U.S. Senate, has traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan numerous times during the past several years as part of the USO tour entertaining the troops over the holidays. He has become so overwhelmed with emotion when speaking about the brave troops he has met and befriended over the years, many who have died, that he frequently cannot physically complete scheduled public speaking engagements.
Has Air America gone after George Bush, Dick Cheney, and the neo-conservative architects of our disastrous foreign policy? Absolutely! Bill Clinton is not a convicted draft dodger or perjurer. As hard as they tried to back on Dec. 19, 1998, Senate Republicans failed to garner enough support to achieve the two-thirds majority required for his conviction. Yes, he lied about a foolish affair with a young intern, but this now seems inconsequential when compared to the lies of the Bush administration and the terrible price our country is currently paying.
Yes, Bill Clinton did not serve in Vietnam, but neither did George Bush (Texas Air National Guard sometimes), Dick Cheney (five deferments and "other priorities"), or Rush Limbaugh (deferred due to a cyst on his posterior).
I do not personally know anyone, liberal or conservative, who does not support our brave men and women in the military.
Is this Scrappleface?
One of about 13 who listen to Air America.
“Randi Rhodes, the popular daytime host”
By whose standards?
Don’t you know it’s just plain wrong (might even be illegal) to say stuff like that on FR??
So they didn’t support Pelosi and Reid’s attempts to cripple the troops by withholding funding?
BS. I’m sure they did.
Hola! Es la casa de Air America de Boston...
Well, it used to be. For English, please press two. Over
a year since they dumped it in Kennedy Country.
If you attack the mission, you attack the troops.
You need a [BARF ALERT]
Greg Newlin says he doen’t ‘personally know’ people like Murtha and Reid, yet he still pays their salary.
With a title like that, the barf alert would have been redundant.
Am I supposed to read past that, or something?
It's called booze and blow.
Isn’t it the liberals who claim the statistics for the war are greatly misleading because too few people are dying and many more are being “saved,” but are left handicapped?
another brain washed sheep that doesn’t even realize it
"I am THE regular listener of Air America..."
[harumph] Uh, Air-America have you now or ever made remarks or supported others remarks on the air the Iraq war is lost?
AA: “yes, numerous times and with good reason I mean George Bush and Dick Cheney should be tried for treason, we are people persons, what the hell is WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!!”
Don’t shoot the messenger. He is just pointing out what they are saying. However it would be a risky first post.
