Olbermann denounces President Bush

December 25th, 2007 . by Matt

Refreshing straight talk from Keith Olbermann. What is strange is that he is the exception, not the norm. The first thing the media should be saying after statements by President Bush is, “is the President lying again?”. Instead they uncritically report and support him. Why do they support such a discredited President?

Anyway, see Olbermann speaking truth to power.

    Doesn’t Olbermann always denounce Bush? He’ll be in trouble when we get a new president — he’ll have to get some new material.

    He was recently on Bill Moyers Journal. Great interview.

    Olbermann is proof that paranoid schizophrenics may function in society. However, a strong victory for the causes which he champions will be beneficial to his treatment, whereas a conservative victory may be catastrophic to his tenuous grip on sanity.

    Olbermann does not sound like a newsman to me. He sounds like some arrogant fanatic, who is unable to control of his emotions and who engages in childish name-calling.

    Kinda like a sportscaster?

    I had thought that President Bush was just extremely misguided and immune to criticism, but now I do not know what to think. Is there any doubt, any, that his administration has been a disaster?

    Perhaps there needs to be a war on terror, but President Bush is not actually fighting it. He has achieved zero war on terror objectives, and has actually made the situation worse.

    At this point all I can think is that President Bush is either stupid or evil. Neither is Presidential material.

    I am not permitted to express my opinions toward the President, but I can say that I voted for neither him nor his rival.

    That is a shame. I hear that this administration has really cracked down on blogging soldiers. You would think that the men “fighting for our freedom” would retain their first amendment rights.

    There may be some truth in Olbermann’s words, but he needs to work on his delivery, name-calling will make your speech sound immature and less credible.

    Matt, as a victim of such crackdowns, I place the blame squarely on the hubris of senior officers rather than any action of the administration.

    Actually, my view of politics is very similar to Hans von Seeckt, who said, “Reichswehr do not fire on Reichswehr.” Personally, my views are so radically apolitical that I feel any public servant should forfeit his/her right to the franchise of voting. To have voted for the loser should be considered a petty act of treason.
