    Two very different things.
    How was Carters comments directed toward President Bush honoring her life's passion? I call BS on you trying to differentiate the two. Both were inappropriate.

    Agreed, right along side of anyone else who used her funeral to play politics (Carter and the Rev)

    Because, they were knocking The President. Turn the cards around, if it were a President Kerry or Gore, and people at a funeral were slamming them...well, you know the reaction we'd see.

    Bah! It was to try to obtain '06 votes. But you keep telling yourself he's a "uniter not a divider" then look at the course of this planet the past few years.

    They were honoring the political struggles of her life which where her passion! If you where specifically spied upon by the gov't then privacy would most certainly be an important issue for you. And it was for her.

    Did you want them to just talk about baking cookies. When you're stuck in the ground do you want people to talk about your accuracy in filling in your tax-form or the things you where passionate about in your life.

    A woman was honored for her life's work and it happened to be a life of passionate left-leaning politics. So what's your damage heather?

    Perhaps, but no doubt he would be joined by many of the people you revere.....just the way it is for politics.

    Again. Honoring Coretta's life works, which was left leaning politics is not playing politics. Just because Bush chose to attend you want that to be ignored when looking over her life accomplishments? If the KKK attended would you want her civil rights championing to not be brought up?

    Grow up. Bush played politics by choosing to attend. He's gotta sit there and take it. If there where an afterlife, she would most certainly have been laughuing her *** off at the squirming little twit.

    Edited to add; and to suggest Jimmy Carter has done anything other than make this planet a FAR BETTER PLACE is either ignorant or just plain mean. The man works tirelessly for the betterment of our species.

    It is one thing to share how she spent her life, it is another to grand stand for political agendas during a eulogy. Maybe I just just have a warped since of respect during such occasions.

    No, I've made my arguement. I don't think a funeral should be politicized. Even if the deceased is a political figure, I feel it's not the right forum to spout off. Just the way I feel. If it were the opposite, such as the Reagan funeral, and Mr. Bush started slamming Democrats, I'd be disgusted at that.

    If you think Bush was trying to gain support, then you'd have to say that parts of her funeral were Democrats trying to rally their base as well.

    That was a blatently bad call. The "push off" in the end zone was equally bad as well. I liked how the ref didn't throw the flag the second the "interference" occured, but waited until Jackson had come down with full possession of the ball at his feet, and then pulled the flag out. Nice...

    Respect is to share what a person felt passionately about in their lives. The fact that it allowed for current political topic 'grand standing' is due to the current political events, like domestic wire-tapping, being something Coretta felt strongly about and for good reason.

    Please tell us the life story of Coretta and what she felt strongly about.

    IF they were honoring her passions of unification why take stabs during the service. Open you eyes and your mind and you will see a whole new world awaits you, or keep your democrat blinders on and accept their inappropriate actions while lambasting others The statement by President Carter, Rush and the Rev were all out of line for the occasion.

    If Bush played politics did Hillary? You can't have it both ways. I think they were there to honor the individual, it is sad some turned it political, but not surprising since some turn every event political (Katrina comes to mind real quick).

    DOMESTIC wiretapping!!!!! When did that happen? Cripes get someone to investigate that, I think there are few folks looking into some international wiretaps that could be better utilized to find out about this new allegation of domestic wiretapping.
