Interesting. In my part of Washington state, the two groups running very negative ads against Santorum are a PAC supporting Newt and a PAC supporting Paul. They are not unfair, but very negative.

"That’s the kind of balance you need," said Geithner. "Why is that the case? Because if you don't try to generate more revenues through tax reform, if you don't ask, you know, the most fortunate Americans to bear a slightly larger burden of the privilege of being an American, then you have to -- the only way to achieve fiscal sustainability is through unacceptably deep cuts in benefits for middle class seniors, or unacceptably deep cuts in national security

The military players (whose identities are closely guarded by the Department of Defense and don't appear in the credits) are world-class experts at running with weapons, which is all that "Act of Valor" requires of them. They all have the same haircut, basic speech patterns, mannerisms and all-American attitude. It would have been good to make them vivid individuals easier to tell apart, but no such luck.....(Snip)

What is so ironic is that the same moron who writes that drival probably sincerely believes he is WAY more well informed about EVERYTHING, than the average American.

I would actually like to see Washington look like that. But only if the current inhabitants are actually there when it happens.

What Colin doesn't get is people will go to this movie, not to watch great acting, but to watch Good Guys Kill Bad Guys...and see what kind of men these are.

Jesse Ventura aims to get even with Navy SEAL in court
DAN BROWNING
2/24/12

"Scruff Face"?

Them's fighting words to Jesse "The Body" Ventura, Minnesota's controversial former governor and TV provocateur.

Ventura, whose real name is James Janos, recently filed a defamation lawsuit against Navy SEAL Chris Kyle over the portrayal of a bar fight Kyle claims they had six years ago in Coronado, Calif. Kyle wrote about the alleged incident in his recent memoir "American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History."

Under the headline, "Punching Out Scruff Face," Kyle describes a confrontation with a "celebrity" who served in the military during the Vietnam War and who "most people seem to believe was a SEAL." He said Scruff Face winters in Baja California, opposed the war in Iraq and described the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks as a "conspiracy."

Though he didn't name Ventura, Kyle has since acknowledged that Scruff Face is Ventura.

In his lawsuit filed in Hennepin County District Court, Ventura denies any such fight took place and alleges that Kyle defamed him in an effort to promote his book. He's seeking unspecified monetary damages, including any profits from the book's sales.

According to Kyle's portrayal, the incident occurred in 2006 in a Coronado bar frequented by SEALs. Kyle was attending a wake for Mike Mansoor, who received the Medal of Honor after throwing himself on a grenade to save fellow SEALs in Iraq.

Seems like this will cause a higher representation of gl's as the likely way to lie is that they are straight.
