Members of the Republican party are very upset over comments made by Donald Trump. Trump charged that John McCain was “not a hero” because he was captured during the Vietnam war and underwent horrible torture. Now Perry and Rubio and Jeb Bush are furious that anyone would stoop so low as to insult a man who was a war hero. Gee, as I recall, back during the 2004 election, John Kerry, who had won the Silver Star, the Bronze Star and purple hearts for being wounded was viciously attacked by Republicans for not deserving his medals.
Swift Boat For Truth Veterans attacked John Kerry claiming he never should have been awarded any medals for bravery. President George Bush, who never served in Vietnam, applauded this attack upon a war hero. He wrote Bud Day who led the smear,”I simply can not express in words how much I value your willingness to stand up against John Kerry.”
So,now Republicans are upset at Donald Trump for doing what they once thought was great-insult a war hero!

I encountered Bill Cosby while in my thirties and never regarded him as a classic comic. He had his “bit,” and it was popular for many years. Then he went into television and portrayed the humorous, but loving father who was always ready to utter some wise words of advice. Unfortunately, Bill Cosby never got around to listening to the advice he handed out to his television children. There now is no question that Bill was a predator who abused women. He used his popularity, his fame as the wise decent man on the Cosby show to entice women into his bed, along with a few drugs.
President Obama at his press conference sort of summed up the Cosby epic. “If you give a woman, or a man for that matter, without his or her knowledge– a drug and then have sex with that person without consent, that’s rape.” Period!
