I don't often praise politicians, but I have to give Mr. Kusinich a pat on the back and the woman on fox interviewing him a slap up side the head. They are discussing the renewal of the patroit act and this DITZ interviewer is actually DEFENDING IT. Mr. Kusinich acurately describes WHY it is unconstitutional and then goes further to point out a few interesting things about the recent arrest of a young man in Denver. For example, WHY with all the things the FBI suposedly found, WHY was he NOT held? How much sense does that make, they find specific target possibilities and bomb making information on his computer, he suposedly admits to having had ties to Al Quieda ALL this and he is not held? And is it a coinicdence this happened on the even of the Patriot Act's renewal? Again, Thank you congressman, you are one of the very few left in congress who sill seems to care about the constitution.

I admit that the same suspicious thought crossed my mind about this big case and the fact that they were at the same time considering extending the Patriot Act. Fear is what brought it into existence and since things have seemed pretty quiet here at home, the breaking news of a huge terrorist plot has got to make it a lot easier to renew it without much resistance.

Even today, the only thing they have arrested him for was lieing to investigators. It's WIERD, REALLY WIERD. The tin foil hat forums are all over this and I usualy dismiss alot of their stuff but this REALLy has me scratching my head.

They are saying they stopped a big attack. But the evidence so far is that the guy had an electronic scale and some batteries. They did say there was info on making bombs on his computer which he said was part of a religious text he downloaded and tried to delete the file. I don't know, maybe they had good reason to suspect. But they haven't found any plans on what targets or at least they didn't say they did. I can see bomb instructions being good evidence, but a lot of homes will contain an electronic scale and batteries. Maybe they just moved too quickly because they needed the collar to make them look necessary.

...Hi xfahctor, I have listened to Mr. Kusinich and found him to be very intelligent and to have a very good command of the issues facing the country. Some people dismiss him, and I just happen to think it is because of his height, don't ask me why, but I do think there is a bias toward him because he is short, I could be wrong. Anyway he makes very valid points in some of his interviews. Take care.

I think the bias is probably more because he doesn't tote the party line and actually gives a crap about the constitution, he isn't an establishment politician like the majority of them seem to be these days.

Sorry I missed that one. Did this woman have any answers or did she learn something from Kusinich?

If I had been ablt to respns a few days ago when I was watching the interview I might be able to give ya some more details, but alas, it's been a few days now and well......yeh...old age. From memory though, Kusinich schooled her pretty hard core. GO DENNIS!!!

I missed this interview and I wish I'd have seen it! I like and respect Dennis Kucinich a lot even though there are those who like to make fun of him. I took one of those internet "tests" during the campaign and the result for me was that I shared more views with Kucinich than any of the other candidates. He's never been afraid to speak out for what he believes in whether it's popular or not. Annie

Kusinich is probably more suited for the libertarian party, rather than the democratic party, I don't know what he is still doing there, *shrug*, probably for the same reason Ron Paul is still a republican, what ever that may be.

Well Kucinich is a pretty nutty guy, but occasionally he does have that flash of brilliance. He's also one of those guys who stands for what he believes in instead of towing the party line. I'll have to see if I can find this clip now.

Yhe, he can come across as nutty, but that seems to be the case with all those in congress who seem to still care about the founding principals of this country and the constitution, they are portrayed as fringe nuts. Look what the republican party did to Ron Paul. Michelle bachman is another example, she's a bit of a loon and says some pretty nutty things, but she at least knows her place.

Yeah, I find Bachmann and her nuttiness entertaining, even if she is Annie's nemesis. I don't know that I've heard Ron Paul called nutty, but he certainly doesn't get the respect he deserved from his party. On the other hand if you talk to any ordinary person who knows about him, they generally have high respect for the guy.

X, I think this is the first time I have EVER hear anyone say something positive about Dennis Kusinich. You are correct that he knows the constiution, and does support it, and the enforcement of it. The problem is that he walks that thin line between genius, and crazy. He is one of those people decades from now people will either consider one of the brightest minds in the country. Or another nut job. But, I am sure he did well in the interview, and I am sure that FOX got him, to make him look stupid. He ususally ends up making them look stupid in the end.

They are usualy a little nicer to himthan the other two networks are actually. the woman I saw doing the interview (can't rmember her name now) was pulling the usual statist mumbo jumbo about national security and al quieda around every corner etc. Dennis held pretty well, citing contisutional language to counter it. Kusinich is one of the few people in congress I have any respect for. The guy is brilliant and I believe that is exactly how history will end up judging him. He is going to go down in the same class with Ron Paul.

I don't know if history will be kind to him or not, but I know that he does make alot of sense (just like Paul does). But, his problem is that he isn't following the status quo, and the powers that be won't allow that to continue. Just like with Ron Paul, the political parties don't want them out there explaining to people what is really going on.
