    Wow! This guy really loses it. I'm certainly no big Patrick Kennedy fan but he did make some valid points in his freak out. The Liberal dominated MSM has been ignoring the Wars lately. In fact the entire "Anti-War" Left has as well. I remember when Liberal Media outlets like CNN and NBC used to enthusiastically plaster our dead soldiers' faces all over TV 24/7. We're definitely not seeing that same enthusiasm from them anymore. So what has changed? My guess is that one of their own is now in the White House so dead soldiers don't benefit them politically anymore. We saw this same coverage back when Bill Clinton was bombing several nations as President. Just didn't hear too much from the "Anti-War" Left back then either. So are the so-called "Anti-War" Leftists and Liberal Press really just frauds in the end? I have to give Patrick Kennedy some Kudos for his honesty.

    Watching Patrick makes me think that the Kennedy line has greatly degenerated due to inbreeding.

    What a moron.

    Really.

    You answered your own question. Obama is President. They have no desire to make him look bad. These are Bush's wars, it doesn't matter that he no longer holds office. Can't bring the troops home? Not Obama's fault. Can't close Guantanamo? Not Obama's fault. No need to remind people what's going on if it's not Bush's fault. Forget all the campaign promises, it not his fault. He had to be elected.

    MSM has not been ignoring Wars

    We get daily reports on Taliban leaders being captured
    Al Qaeda heads killed in rocket attacks
    Shrinking "safe zones" for terrorists

    Well he will be out of Congress soon but i thought he made some very valid points in his tirade. That was just a part of his speech. The other parts of the speech focused on the Wars themselves and how they're being fought. Interesting stuff.

    Our biggest threat to Liberty right now is Obamacare. Kennedy is engaging in a bit of the Fog of War to create a distraction so that his Dad's Dream will be forced on The People against Our Will.

    Yea just not seeing all of our dead kids' faces plastered all over nightly news broadcasts anymore. Why is that? One of their own is in power now so the Liberal Press has nothing to gain politically by showing our dead kids' faces anymore. It is very sad but it is what it is i guess.

    Kennedy's an idiot. The wars are being covered, just not the way he WANTS it to be.
