Skip to comments.Dan Rather: Americans 'too tough' on Obama (for criticizing his junket to Afghanistan)
Posted on 05/02/2012 11:04:48 AM PDT by Zakeet
Dan Rather, the former CBS anchor, argued that the reaction to President Obama's trip to Afghanistan yesterday shows that Americans are "too tough" on him and presidents in general.
"I think we are [too tough]," Rather said on Morning Joe when asked. "And we can see it and hear it today in the reaction to President Obama's appearance last night in Kabul . . . I think we are too tough on our presidents." He added that sometimes Americans "aren't tough enough on our presidents," who can receive "too much leeway."

You evil right wing nuts were also too tough on me!
Who or what is a Dan Rather, and why should I care???
It’s Rather’s book promo tour.
Kenneth, what’s the frequency?
But it’s not too tough to lie about GWB like you did, Dan?
I think we are too tough on our presidents.” He added that sometimes Americans “aren’t tough enough on our presidents,” who can receive “too much leeway.”
Let me guess. We’re too tough on liberal democrats and just not tough enough on republicans.
Go back to irrelevance, Dan
Dan, can you say, “Fake but accurate”, “Rathergate” or “Memogate”?
Some people are just too stupid to understand how stupid they are.
I'm sure that was political and we weren't critical enough then.
Now, Obama talks about getting Osama and flys to Afghanistan on the anniversary of Osamas date with destiny, and then sends a shout out TO HIMSELF.
That OBVIOUSLY wasn't political and we're being too tough on him.
We the People elected him (supposedly, I didn’t vote for him) so he is OUR employee. As his boss, We the People deserve to know about him.
Note that Obama could not get hired where I work, he could not pass the NSA security background investigation for even a Confidential clearance.
It isn’t even worth going over this demented liberal’s failings anymore....why would anyone with any sense listen to him anymore? He should just give up the ghost and save us all the trouble of listening to him.
I’d Rather Dan stick a sock in it. Crawl back into your box-o-shame.
Dan who? Why is he being quoted and not me? Is he a wise sage of some sort?
Yeah, I remember well how loudly Rather complained about all of the phony leftist outrage over "Mission Accomplished".
How can we “contact” Dan? I’d like to tell him what I really “feel” about his decades of lies, distortions and America hating. He looks like hell anyway so I’d like to let him know, with certainty, that many Americans hate his guts and want him to disappear. I vomit on his face!
Have a nice day, ;)
What `Fake and Accurate` documents does Kenneth have to back up his claim?
guess I’ll have to lay off of Rather for the same reason I’ve laid off Ralph Nader in recent years.
It’s too cruel and un-Christian to pick on guys who are going senile.
No Dan, “Too tough” is fabricating false evidence.
Well Dan boy , it’s like this.
America didn’t start out being too tough on the President, but over time he earned it.
His first trip on Air Force One was to Williamsburg, a 30 minute flight by helicopter. But No , He wabted to get a load of the pleasures of having his ass kissed all the way there and the super perks aboard Air Force One. That was just the beginning. Along came other flights practically every other day, Vacations up the ying-yang, trips to Camp David, Golfing Trips on a separate plane for his wife , Christmas in Hawaii,a trip to Mexico for his daughter and 12 friends,—— Too Numerous to mention campaign trips, parties at the White House both public and in secret.
No Dan— we didn’t start out being too tough on the Dingleberry, he earned it.
at least he’s not going to the moon to take credit for this Saturday’s “supermoon”...yet.
He’s like Snake Plisken (Escape from New York). People always asking “if he is dead yet” or saying “I thought you were dead”. Or “What is the frequency, Kenneth?” Poor sorry ba$turd..
get the F out, has-been...
There’s a lot of things that are too tough for you, Dan. Like the USMC.
Why does anybody care what Dan Rather has to say after finding out who he really is?
