A picture named CM 007.jpgOn the Chris Matthews Show on CNBC, Gloria Borger from U.S. News and World Report said about the Rumsfeld question fiasco:

"It was kind of an insubordinate thing to do if you will..."

Kathleen Parker from the Orlando Sentinel also criticized the troops:

"They bellyache if you ask them, if they haven't had a bath in two days.."

Then she compares the Iraq war with WWII:

"In World War II people went into battle without winter uniforms.."

Ms. Parker then makes a prediction that Rumsfeld will step down in 2005 and John McCain will take his place.

We figure if he does step down it will be because of health reasons. Not his but the troops.
