Ailing George Bush Sr. Draws Torrent of Hate Tweets | Daily Download

     Are people more nasty these days or does the ease of getting an audience through technology just encourage the already rude and ignorant.
      Media critic Howard Kurtz writes about a "torrent" of vitreolic tweets about the illness of former President George H.W. Bush who is improving after a month long bout with bronchitis at a Houston hospital.
       For some social media is empowering, but in a very negative way.

To post such terrible words on the stupid tweet site is so wrong I have no words. I suspect that those people could also shoot students! Tweeting is NOT freedom of speech, it is freedom to be stupid!

GHWB started the move away from the ideals of Reagan. I will not grieve his loss.

Libruls are such a compassionate lot.

Speaking of dead prezidents. The Communist MSN has the nerve to ask Christie if he is healthy enough to be POTUS, since he is overweight and thus in a high risk group for a young untimely death.

Meanwhile the prezident smokes and worse has two dead parents. What is the number one risk group for early death? Even riskier than high blood pressure, obesity and smoking?
Answer: Having parents that died young.

Well, Dannie himself called Republicans racist. So its not like we have to travel that far to find things we don't understand. And while 11:09 is correct, philosophically, I don't understand how anyone can not feel regret at someone's passing. But Lib's rule on the hate front. We have the c word that came from them when speaking of the Alaska lady. Her teenage daughter was made into a sex joke, something you would never hear about Hillary's daughter. GW was a war criminal, something Limwit himself proclaimed time and time again. The Lib's tolerate so much more, they also hate so much more. And whatever they say is accepted, forgiven, and ignored. We heard lots about how the Tea Party said nasty things. Trouble is, none of it was substantiated. Didn't need to be with the Dannie types. The party told them to repeat it so they did.

“Her teenage daughter was made into a sex joke,…”

Really! I must have missed that one. Maybe you can share it with us… I need a good laugh.

The daughter in question was fourteen and David Letterman inferred that she got pregnant by Alex Rodriguez while attending a Yankee game.

You mean this one…

"One awkward moment, though, during the game. Maybe you heard about it, maybe you saw it on one of the highlight reels, one awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game. During the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez." --David Letterman

Or this one…

"It looks like a catfight is breaking out among the Republican Party's younger members, both of them, because Bristol Palin is on an abstinence tour, promoting abstinence. What a good person to do that. And she says abstinence is the only thing that works." --Bill Maher

I got a million of ‘em…

Satisfied 2:09? Or is you wishin' to play stupid some more? You threw out the challenge, then ran away. Typical Democrat coward.
