Why do we have a two-party system? It is not enshrined in the Constitution. In reality, the Founding Fathers viewed the creation of political parties with horror. Is changing the system un-American? What are the possible benefits?
On his radio show today Glenn Beck continued his jihad against intelligence by saying, "The Nazis learned their propaganda from the progressive movement in the United States." However, Adolph Hitler wrote in Mein Kamph that the Nazis learned the value of propaganda from the British during World War I.
Fox News president Roger Ailes was on ABC's This Week today, where he was confronted by Arianna Huffington about the inflammatory rhetoric that Glenn Beck uses on his show. Ailes replied, "He's talking about Hitler and Stalin slaughtering people so I think he was probably accurate."
When Democrats can’t get the obstructionists to play and we fail to read up on how our government works (so we can blame you for not closing Gitmo yet, just say), progressives point our fingers at you with ignorant righteousness, Mr. President, and say, you suck.
Tuesday’s special US Senate election in Massachusetts presents a critical moment for both the Obama administration and the Democratic Party, which is why Democrats need to mobilize to prevent Republicans from possibly derailing the Obama agenda.
The attempted Christmas day terror attack has thrust the issue of terrorism back into the spotlight, while the cynical, paranoid neo-con chicken hawks have looked to exploit the issue for political gain. Here is how the US can battle al-Qaeda without giving into fear and changing who we are.
While Palin has refused to allow any media to ask her questions on her "book" tour, and now she's laid down the new law and is not even allowing her fellow Alaskans inside the venue where she held her last book signing in Alaska. She had the local bloggers/media identified by pictures, and on a "Banned" list, enforced by local police.
You can call it a teaser for Countdown's whack job of the year special, but if anyone needed a recap of the wild year that Sarah Palin had, the program delivered it tonight. The one thing you'll probably notice about Palin's year is that she quit her job, fought with the media, sold books, and did nothing productive in 2009.
First, the fact that he couldn't take losing to Ned Lamont in the Democratic Primary for his Senate seat in his last election (2006), so HE started HIS OWN PARTY, Connecticut for Lieberman then he campaigned for John McCain, and now his criticism has helped derail the public option, because at the end of the day it is all about Joe Lieberman.
Tonight, Chris Matthews opened up his MSNBC program Hardball with an apology for his comment that Obama went into the enemy camp when he spoke at West Point last night. Matthews said, "I used the wrong words and worse than that, I said something that was just not right, for that I deeply apologize."
On his radio show, Rush Limbaugh warped Chris Matthews' statement that Obama went to the enemy camp last night, by proclaiming that West Point is not the enemy camp, but that MSNBC and the White House are the real enemies of America. Apparently, Chris Matthews now speaks for the entire Left.
Whether you love him or hate him, MSNBC's Chris Matthews has a habit of planting his foot firmly in his mouth, which he did again tonight during MSNBC's coverage of President Obama's speech on Afghanistan when he claimed that by giving a speech at West Point, Obama had ventured into an enemy camp.
On his MSNBC program Countdown tonight, host Keith Olbermann delivered a brutal critique against President Obama's decision to send more troops to Afghanistan. He concluded, "So, much of the change for which you were elected, Sir, has thus far been understandably, if begrudgingly, tabled, delayed, made more open-ended."
Donny Deutsch was on MSNBC's Morning Joe this morning, and in response to a new poll that found that Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck are the most influential conservatives in America, he said, "These are all entertainers. They're circus acts." Deutsch was asked about Lou Dobbs, and he said Dobbs is a racist.
Gone are the days of smoky newsrooms and journalists that are committed to facts. They have been replaced by 24 hour cable news networks and right wing infotainers, who give partial treatment to GOP talking points and illogical rhetoric. The result of this is that journalism being undermined by right wing media bias.
On MSNBC's Morning Joe today, host Joe Scarborough jumped on the fear mongering bandwagon over trying detainees in the United States. Scarborough claimed that, "This has never happened before. It is unprecedented," but this is not even close to true as both the Bush and Clinton administrations tried terror suspects in the United States.
Rep. Dennis Kucinich, who was the only Democrat to vote against the House healthcare reform bill, was on MSNBC's The Ed Show tonight discussing why he voted against the bill. Kucinich said, "I voted against it because it is a giveaway to the insurance companies. They'll get $70 billion in new business. They'll have 21 million captive customers."
In an interesting blog post today, Harvard Business professor, and Obama voter Bill George argued that MSNBC's Keith Olbermann is hurting America. George said, "Olbermann cheapens discourse. He touts easy solutions. He speaks in truculent soundbites. His invective is hurting America!" This leads to the question are progressives sick of Olbermann?
In an interview this morning on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Obama White House adviser Valarie Jarrett expressed the president's firm commitment to the public option. Jarrett said, "He's committed to it, he's pushing for it, and he's absolutely committed to delivering on health care reform this year."
On his radio show today Rush Limbaugh defended Fox News by labeling both MSNBC and CNN respectively porn and child porn. If Fox News is talk radio, Limbaugh said, "MSNBC is pornography, and Obama likes MSNBC."
