On his FNC program today Glenn Beck launched into another one of his Marxist control rants when he couldn’t resist a little bit of that old time racism, “The most effective way to become the slavemaster and make them come to you is to make them come to you for employment.” According to Beck, Obama is America’s slavemaster.
In the press release announcing her deal with Fox News, Sarah Palin wasted no time in parroting the company line. Palin said, “It’s wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news.” Interestingly, the Palin deal is not exclusive, and would free her up for a presidential run in 2012.
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow made another appearance on CBS’ The Late Show with David Letterman last night. Maddow assesses Obama’s first year, “I think nobody’s noticed that he’s kind of quietly put together the most legislatively accomplished first year of any president in a generation.”
Rudy Giuliani was on ABC’s Good Morning America today where he parroted the conservative big lie that no domestic terror attacks occurred under George W. Bush, but he added that we have had one under Obama. Giuliani said, “We had no domestic attacks under Bush. We have had one under Obama.”
MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann recently declared that former Vice President Dick Cheney is a traitor, but I would take Olbermann’s comments about Cheney’s traitorous activities one step further. Plain and simple, Dick Cheney is a TERRORIST.
On his radio show today, Rush Limbaugh proclaimed that he too is one of America’s 47 million uninsured, and that he is providing leadership by demonstrating how cheap healthcare really is. Limbaugh said, ” If you can afford a pretty expansive media room, you can afford what I spent in the hospital.”
FNC’s Bill O’Reilly has been behaving relatively sanely, but that changed tonight on his program The O’Reilly Factor when he expressed his outrage at an animated political cartoon by Mark Fiore about learning to speak teabag which was posted on their website November 12, by labeling NPR a, “left wing jihadist deal.”
On his MSNBC program The Ed Show tonight, host Ed Schultz addressed speculation that he will run for the Senate seat currently held by the retiring Byron Dorgan. Schulz confirmed that he has been approached to run for the Senate seat, and most importantly, he didn’t say no to a potential run for the seat.
RNC Chairman Michael Steele was on Fox Radio’s Brian and The Judge show, and he left no doubt about who is really running the GOP, as he admitted that he watches Glenn Beck , and then said, “Love, Beck, love Beck, my goodness, he’s lovable.”
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin took to her Facebook page again today to attack President Obama for treating the suspect in the attempted Christmas Day terror attack as a criminal. Palin’s entire intellectual basis for argument is based on what she saw on Fox News, and things that she made up.
Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) was on CNN’s Larry King Live last night, and he pulled no punches when the discussion turned to Dick Cheney’s recent criticisms of Obama’s national security policy. Paul said, “Well, I think he had his eight years and he’s caused a lot of trouble for our country and he perpetuated a war in Iraq that was unnecessary and wrong-headed.”
We are in the midst of one of the nation’s greatest fears, being attacked by extremists. No, not just the “Underwear Bomber from Nigeria, but also Dick Cheney, Jim DeMint, and other right wing extremists who are suffering from a case of collective amnesia related to how they dropped the ball on national security.
The latest big lie being spread through right wing media is that Bill Clinton not George W. Bush is to blame for 9/11. On FNC’s Hannity program, Dick Morris said, “The reason 9/11 happened was because Bill Clinton treated the ’93 bombing of the World Trade Center as a crime, not an act of war.”
On his MSNBC program Hardball today, host Chris Matthews took a minute to take a shot at Rush Limbaugh, who recently proclaimed that the healthcare system is fine. He also tried to explain the issue to him. Matthews described the issue as, “getting for millions of people who don’t have it, something like the healthcare Rush gets.”
While leaving a Hawaii hospital that he was admitted to for chest pains, Rush Limbaugh used himself as an example of why the health care system does not need reformed. Limbaugh said that the healthcare system works, “just fine and dandy,” but the Hawaii system is the model for the Democratic reform plan, and the hospital is unionized. Limbaugh has cluelessly endorsed socialized medicine and unionization.
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow ended 2009 by promising to do more of the same kind of show in 2010. Maddow admitted that her show has found its niche, which is shedding light on the money and power relationships that make the right wing tick. Check out the video.
This week The New York Times ran a draft of the soon to be published official Army history of the war in Afghanistan. The report complete contradicts the claims of neo-cons that they did not ignore Afghanistan while focusing on Iraq. The history details how the Bush administration ignored Afghanistan for Iraq.
Somebody at CNN’s Larry King Live thought that it would be a great idea to put Ben Stein and Rep. Ron Paul on the same panel to discuss terrorism, and what occurred was a microcosm of the current GOP civil war, with Paul absolutely schooling Stein on how neo-con policies help to create terrorists.
2009 began with the inauguration of our new and first African American President, Barack Obama, and became the year that GOP and the Extreme Right Wing of the party became energized and very proactive in its goal to be destructive to our new President and his administration and policies by any means necessary.
The failed attempt at a terrorist attack in Detroit over the weekend has caused Republicans to revive their claims that Democrats are weak on national security. On CNN’s State of the Union today Mary Matalin claimed that George W. Bush inherited 9/11 from Bill Clinton, even though 9/11 happened 8 months after Bush took office.
