    Perez sucks. All he does is promote himself, kiss celebrity ass, slander those who've snubbed him, and tack other people's stories up on his page with a lame "What do you think" at the end, so he doesn't offend anybody, because that would mean less ad dollars in his pocket. Fuck Perez!

    Tim Russert, the last of the NBC news brand. It won't be long after President Bush leaves office (3-5 months) that we will be hit again. Obama or McCain will issue warrants for the arrest of the bombers and we will Hope everday and will have Change we deserve. President Bush will go down in history as one of the great defenders of America.

    Oh, he's back from his long European goodbye administration sanitation tour plus pushing at Iran now? Has he bothered to visit the Great Flood of 2008 in Iowa or Illinois yet? I hear the Governer got a phone call. Unbelievable. New Orleans II. I liked Russert, though. Now there's a man who was worth his salt, RIP.

    Re: Dick
    Unlike New Orleans the people know how to take care of themselves. They do not rely on the goverment. The people in NO are parasites that need to be demolished.

    Re: Mary – I did not realize this was also Rosie's site. Your reading comprehension skills are great. No wonder you are liberal, you need the government to do everything for you. Let me guess, you are for socialized healthcare?

    Re: Dick

    What the hell is he going to be able to do? Nothing. The NO fiasco was because of Nagin and the gov. both dems. Nagon had 200 buses but did not use them. And what did the people of NO do? They re-elected him. Not very bright are you.

    Re: Marti – Marti you are a complete dumbass. How in anyway was Tim Russert an asshole? Did you know the guy? because I did and he was a wonderful father, husband, and all around man. Now get over yourself fucktard.

    RIP.

    I was always so impressed by Tim Russert's integrity and his values. I also thought he was totally hot.

    Re: Pete – What would he be able to do? Show up and give them support, hope, along with some sort of a plan to boost morale for those thousands of besieged citizens. Leadership. You do not seem very bright to me, acting as an apologist for a leader who showed up to one national crises many days late in a brief flyover without even touching his feet to the ground, and hasn't yet showed up for the other.

    Another dead Liberal makes me happy. Now we have to wait for the brain tumor in Ted Kennedy's head to kill him slowly. At least Russert had the decency to go quickly.

    Lots of idiocy coming from both sides of the political zealot fence actually.

    Tim Russert was one of the last democrats who didn't operate in the slimy, nasty, Clinton-infested aura that now exists. He was a great moderator, and a wonderful ambassador to the great city of Buffalo. He is going to be sorely missed, and the President being present at his wake illustrates just how Mr. Russert was able to garner support and respect across the aisle.

    Re: HI – Nobody has forgotten. Don't worry about that. We are allowed to mourn those who are close to home for us, too. The troubles of the world will not go away because people feel that they need to appropriately send condolences in the face of the death of a decent person like Mr. Russert. Get over your special interest…we all know its there, and are trying to help as best we can.

    Re: jstew – So in order to be supportive of the current President, you have to be "clueless", huh? You're the ignorant one. People are entitled to their "RIGHT" to support whatever political party they wish. Name-calling & brow-beating is very typical of you left-wing, radical, bleeding-heart morons. How's that?

    I'm not sure why I was even SURPRISED at all to find that some ignorant assholes have come to this page, which speaks of a deceased man's wake, and slam the president.

    News flash: THIS PAGE IS NOT ABOUT THE PRESIDENT; IT IS ABOUT TIM RUSSERT.

    Even if you don't like someone HAVE SOME FUCKING RESPECT, you ingrates.

    The person who raised you failed terribly. Be ashamed of yourselves.

    Too bad this shameful example of a President can't be bothered to attend the funerals of our dead soldiers. He seems to have forgotten all the wars he's gotten them into, much less when their bodies are shipped home.

    More soldiers died in Afghanistan last month than died in Iraq. Did anybody notice?

    Re: pete – Number 34, you're very close to absolutely correct. Though many can't handle your frankness. The Ninth Ward was full of ramshackle houses and the poor. As long as we have civilization, we will have the poor.
    The original french and spanish who founded and built New Orleans 300 years ago left that land alone. It was marsh that regularly flooded.
    Of course the poor, with short memories, are going to settle on land that nobody else wants. Consequences un-considered.
    Now they expect the US gov't to build and give them free houses. (Which the US is not in the business of doing.)
    You should hear off all the shit police and the authorities are getting trying to return FEMA loaner trailers to FEMA.
    Franklin Delano Roosevelt didn't know the misery he was getting the rest of us into, when he came up with "Welfare"—what he considered at the time to be a temporary solution. It has unfortunately become a welfare culture/lifestyle for some.
    Once you give out free stuff for too long—even stray dogs will bite if you suddenly stop.
