Does Mike Rogers Hate America?

Mike Rogers was in Russia recently on an "intelligence trip," and one of the pieces of "intelligence" he picked up is that the Soviet Union's top corporate tax rate is lower than that in the U.S. and that therefore they have a better business plan than the U.S.

A few years ago, if a Democrat would have gone to another country and made a favorable comparison between that country and the U.S., the Sean Hannitys of the world would have screamed bloody-murder. "Why does (fill in the blank) hate America?" was a common way of demonizing anyone who dared to criticize Bush's America.

So I guess it's only fair now to ask, "Why does Mike Rogers hate America?"

And for that matter, why does Mike Rogers hate Ronald Reagan, since the top marginal tax rates he now thinks are so terrible were even higher under Reagan -- as high as 50 percent for individuals. Reagan must have been a real pinko.

America -- love it or leave it, Mike.
