Tonight Ed Schultz had Rep. Eric Massa (D-NY-29) and while talking about Cheney’s typical fear-mongering response, Massa decided it was time to call Cheney out. He challenges Cheney to a debate. When Ed told Massa Cheney would only do it on Fox, Massa said “so”. This was great and I wonder if Cheney will take him up on it.
For those not familar with Massa, he is a former Republican and retired Navy commander. While serving he was a top aide to General Wesley Clark when Clark was the NATO Supreme Commander. Massa was also a Republican, but left the party mainly over the issue of the Iraq War.
Massa has all the merits to debate how to fight and win this war on terror, so if Cheney feels he is so right about everything then he should have nothing to feat debating Massa. Can we get this scheduled now? I really think the American people deserve to hear a true debate about the war on terror.
