I'm no fan of W, but I absolutely concur. What an absolutely bizarre and misguided comparison.

Say what you guys want, I could care less about the Michael Vick situation. I only said what I said to show how nonsensical it is to make Vick out to be some Anti-Christ just because he doesn't have the "mainstream" look and that he killed some dogs.

There are human beings walking free in this country who are responsible for the deaths and maimings of hundreds of thousands of human beings...I repeat this again: HUMAN BEINGS and we choose to leave those targets alone. Unlike Vick, those targets will NEVER see the inside of a jail cell.

Now THAT'S sick.

I agree with this entire post.

i was and still am a huge Vick fan..I am happy to see him doing well in Philly, but I now believe Matt Ryan is the right guy for this team. I will support Vick until he plays the Falcons, then he will just be another player in the league to me

I guess Roosevelt should have been in prison as well since he declared war on Japan and Germany? And JFK got us into the war in Vietnam. I guess he is responsible for all the maiming and killing that went on there? What laws did Bush violate? The president and congress declared war on two countries that they determined to be enemies of the free world. I don't get the analogy.
I think you are more angry about someone saying something bad about a black male and feel the need to turn it around and criticize a white guy.

If Bush had been running a dog fighting ring and personally killing and abusing dogs he should receive the same treatment as Vick.

That being said, I don't approve of the war on either Iraq or Afghanistan. We ought to be spending our time and energy on intelligence, target hardening, improving response and resiliency. Also, making the U.S. the ultimate example of excellence, fairness and long term sustainability. Let these other loonies duke it out among themselves.

How odd. I feel the same way about our current (one term) president.

"Short memories are dangerous. This is a despicable human being....it sickens me that young people are offered filth like this as role models."
