A Mouth is a Terrible Thing to Shoot Off
But what did Venezuela's president do to Robertson that he wants him dead? Seems a trifle harsh. And if, as he suggests, the U.S. has Hugo Chávez assassinated, will Robertson then have other candidates for political engineering? Shoot 'em all and let Pat Robertson sort 'em out.
Meanwhile, Donald Rumsfeld has said, rather mildly, that Public Citizens can say what they like, but that the U.S. doesn't assassinate people. The State Department notes that Robertson's remarks were "inappropriate."
Me, I stand foresquare against assassination of anyone, anyone at all. But if I were making a list of people who pose a danger to the body politic, Robertson would be on it.
