    Why do you distrust or fear people like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O, or any other commentator but not the President of the US?

    You people have a deep hatred for these people yet they have absolutely no power over anything in your life.

    They can not:
    Tax you
    assassinate you
    regulate you
    imprison you
    force you to buy something
    declare war
    send your son or daughter to war
    impose travel restrictions on you
    manipulate you through legislation
    or anything else that the president of the United States can do to you.



    So, I'm going to ask you again. Why do you fear them, but not the president of the US?

    Because they have arguably an even greater power....the power to directly influence the thoughts of millions of people.

    People naturally don't fully trust the president, no matter who it is, because people grow up with the understanding that politicians are not always truthful.

    I asked this question months ago and got no response. A lib would have to think to answer this question rather than react emotionally like they do so often. The truth is libs live off of hate. They thrive on hating their enemies. We've all seen and heard libs say outrages things when they have no answer. All they care about is the victory over their foes even if the destruction of our nation is the price tag.

    During his second admin, Pres Clinton complained to the media that Rush Limbaugh had three hoprs per day to say anything he wanted.
    To say I was incredulous was an undestatement.
    Dammit, Clinton was the President of the United States!!!!
    At a moments notice he could have gone on the air, had his press secretary issue a statement or any other of a number of ways The Office of President can address the public.
    So to say entertainers have a certain power greater than the Leader of the Free world is a sad commentary on this nation.
    Comes as no surprise that some of us think what idiots such as Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan are up to is somehow important news.

    Not just any President. They hated and feared George Bush.

    It's funny how when Bush was President, the left hated and distrusted government. Now, they want the government to run every aspect of their lives.

    LOL, seriously? Whats to stop me from saying that the right under Bush were fine with government doing as it pleased but not until Obama got in to office did the right start whining about government spending and power. Give me a break.

    Who says I don't trust the likes of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, or Bill O?

    I trust them to be buffoons, blowhards, and bullshit artists respectively.

    The problem is alot of us weren't OK with Bush. Why do you think the GOP lost the oval, house and the senate in '08

    I remember seeing a sign that read "I'm a republican and I'm ashamed of this GOP"

    I took awhile to awaken us but we are awake now

    You still didn't answer my question
