Editor gets it on War on Terror
I'm going to miss Ross Mackenzie when he retires from the Richmond Times-Dispatch at the end of this year. I wish he would stay. He's been outspokeningly ... conservative. How many newspaper people do you know who are conservative? Ross Mackenzie gets its!
Mackenzie's column in today's Times-Dispatch is titled "It's Getting Old, Their Game of 'Can You Top This?'" In it he talks about returning from vacation and checking the headlines to get caught up ... and finding the same Democrat/lib screeching he saw before he left:
"Fire Rumsfeld. Impeach Bush. Condi's a joke. Cheney is wrong. The retired flag officers are right. We all voted for the war before we voted against it. We support the troops but not the war ... "
... and on and on.
He ended it with this:
"The irreducible facts: We are at war. The jihadists hate us, want to destroy our freedoms and rights, seek to kill us. And we dare not flag until they are defeated and victory is ours."
