    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    September 12, 2007
    General "Betray Us": Stop Blaming MoveOn.org--Blame Keith Olbermann

    A chorus of criticism has been launched at moveon.org for its controversial "General Betray Us" advertisement. Veterans, members of the military, and politicos ranging from Mitt Romney to Nancy Pelosi have criticized the ad for its suggestion that a respected wartime military leader is actually a Benedict Arnold--a traitor who would betray his country. Even Keith Olbermann was reluctant to echo the moveon charge. While he slammed Republicans as "egregious" for taking exception to the "Betray Us" ad, Olby quickly added: "not to defend that phraseology".

    Why not defend it, Keith? You know better than anyone that the moveon critics are aiming at the wrong target. It's not moveon.org who should take the blame for this repellent implication against the General. Fess up, Keith--why are you trying to distance yourself from this smear? Moveon didn't come up with it. You did!

    Long before the moveon "Betray Us" advertisement, back on August 16th, the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann began his "newscast" in the usual fashion, bellowing the opening spiel. And there it was, weeks before the moveon ad, in all its glory:

    KEITH OLBERMANN, MSNBC HOST: Which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? The Petraeus report, less Petraeus, more betrayaeus (ph).

    Perhaps at that point Keith should have added: "not to defend that phraseology", but oops he couldn't, because it was his phraseology. Oh, and just to drive the point home, he also plastered it on-screen, so nobody would miss it:

    Sissy

    Keith Oralmann has shown himself to be un-American and a liar. Now, as he backpedals away from his own words and pretends they are someone else's fault, it turns out he is a sissy too.

    Yeah J$! This must be like shootin' fish in a barrel, taking candy from a baby. Man these post just write themselves. Nothing like using Olbermann's own words, graphics, etc. to point out the truth. Keep on keepin' on!!!!!

    I just listened to Terri Gross on NPR and the guy who wrote Fiasco condemed, very strongly, these personal attacks against Petreaus, calling them very wrong and misguided.

    He, he, he.....

    Another sign of the fringe element Olbermann speaks to....even the political class has condemned the swipe at General Petraeus because they know that common sense shows such pathetic tactics will not be received well by normal Americans.

    Olbermann.....the radical left's man.

    Cee, as I've already said, I do not agree with nor do I defend moveon's "Betray us" ad, ..... however, in reality, it is no worse than the despicable Freedomwatch ads that are being run that literally tie in the 911 attack with Iraq.

    You know it, I know it, everybody who is paying attention knows it....but I'm confident you will never admit it.

    Ah, Mike, the key is that The New York Times accepted the ad while MSNBC refuses to air the Freedomwatch ads....

    Why is that, Mike? I have no problem with anyone taking the ad revenue (we all know the rag NYT is is desperate financial straights and needs the revenue) but once the ad is run, I can have an opinion and reaction to it. MSNBC and CNBC obviously feels their ideology make them uncofortable with Freedomwatch ads.

    To sully an active professional man's "patriotism" by claiming he is a tratitor is wrong, IMHO....

    Obviously Olbermann and MSNBC who pays him does not feel this way, nor does the fringe anti-war group (and leftist front organization) moveon.org.

    Anti-American AND anti-military....why can't you and the rest of the left just admit that is what you really are?

    Cee: "Ah Mike, the key is that the New York Times accepted the ad while MSNBC refuses to run the Freedonwatch ads."

    "Why is that Mike?"

    I don't know Cee. Do I look like the NY Times? Obviously MSNBC made the correct decision, and the NYT didn't.

    Cee: "Anti-American and anti-military....why can't you and the rest of the left just admit that is what you really are?"

    Because that is a LIE, and I can't believe that someone who calls himself a doctor would perpetuate a despicable LIE like that.

    In fact Cee, the mere utterance of such inflammatory tripe makes YOU anti-American!

    No way the above post was the normal O'lielly. He didn't wish death upon someone that doesn't agree with him.

    Why is that, Mike? I have no problem with anyone taking the ad revenue (we all know the rag NYT is is desperate financial straights and needs the revenue) but once the ad is run, I can have an opinion and reaction to it. MSNBC and CNBC obviously feels their ideology make them uncofortable with Freedomwatch ads.

    Actually Cee, MoveOn.org received a $102,000 discount on the standard political advocacy rate that is advertised at $167,157 so the New York Slimes did not run the add to make money, they ran the add because they support it.

    Did the VC follow us home in 1974 ?
    Posted by: Bill O'lielly at September 12, 2007 3:31 PM

    Really, I thought you lived in the United States O'Lielly?

    "We've seen a very modest reduction of violence in Baghdad, partly because entire neighborhoods have essentially been ethnically cleansed. Those are all positive things,"
    Barak Obamanation

    Really? I guess we know his solution to Iraq.

    When a group calls a general "Betray-Us" I believe it is reasonable to characterize them as anti-military.

    When a group calls the sitting President of The United States a terrorist and puts our behavior in the same moral depths as lawless terrorists....I think it is reasonable to characterize them as anti-American.

    When a group endorces policies that the enemies of The United States endorce, I think it is reasonable to call them anti-American.

    Why do these characterizations alarm you Mike? The left proudly displays their credentials regarding these policies. Is it because it is bad PR and the average American does not embrace such extreme views?

    I am called a fundmentalist flat earther bigoted rightwinger (also anti-American BTW) without a complaint....an inaccurate term that is used by the tolerant secular humanists that post on this board and I let it roll down my back as so much rain water....I do not care what people call me, I suggest you try to get a little thicker skin as well.

    "...I just usually post when I am watching Bill O'reilly and he angers me so much that I lash out and say stupid things...I really am not as maniacal as I seem, however I am pushed easily."
    Posted by: Bill O'lielly at September 12, 2007 3:58 PM

    So Bill O'Reilly makes you so unhinged that you constantly leave death threats and many other ugly, vile and pointless comments. What's next... will Lou Dobs "transmit" messages so you will start tracking down immigrants. F*cking idiot, its only cable TV pundit...take your vile "dumps" elsewhere.

    Keith's hypocrisy has no end
    His own statement he won't defend
    Move-On coined his phrase
    Now Keith wants it two ways
    Move-On is like Olby's best friend

    "If Petraeus cannot say that the surge has made America safer what exactly are we fighting for ?"


    ###
    We are fighting for the security a democratic ally in the region. Their success is for the benefit of our national security as General Petraeus stated clearly today.

    Iraq is only one of two democracies in the region surrounded by theocracy and totalitarianism. You seem to want Iran, Syria and the nationless Al Queda take over a population that voted just two years ago....Abandon them to the totalitarians just like in South Vietnam.

    No. If that is your goal you're on your own. George Bush will not make that happen for you nor will his supporters. The left will have to do what they did in 1975 and CUT THE FUNDS and live with the consequences to our reputation for standing for freedom and the helpless in our world against despotism.

    Like I keep repeating on and on and on.....

    Stop the war....bring the troops home now....cut the funds!

    And this is my post today, the 1,596th day since the declaration of Mission Accomplished in Iraq.....

    I am cee, good night and good luck.

    "I'd tell you that the Democrats are talking a good game, but they're not even doing that. Everybody in Congress has to understand something: If they continue to fund this war, it's not just the President who owns it. They own it, too." Sgt. Liam Madden

    "There were a few tense moments, however, including an encounter involving Joshua Sparling, 25, who was on crutches and who said he was a corporal with the 82nd Airborne Division and lost his right leg below the knee in Ramadi, Iraq. Mr. Sparling spoke at a smaller rally held earlier in the day at the United States Navy Memorial, and voiced his support for the administration's policies in Iraq. Later, as antiwar protesters passed where he and his group were standing, words were exchanged and one of the antiwar protestors spit at the ground near Mr. Sparling; he spit back." NYT 1/28/07

    "I think the Vietnamese are better off in Vietnam," George McGovern - NEWSWEEK

    "Lefties: Leave these pathetic drowning rats alone to stew in each other's juices. Get yourselves out in the street and fight this criminal administration in ways that really mean something, and that are noted by more than a handful of keyboard heroes!" Sir Loin of Beef

    "American liberals need to face these truths: The demand for self-government was and remains strong in Iraq despite all our mistakes and the violent efforts of al Qaeda, Sunni insurgents and Shiite militias to disrupt it." DEMOCRAT Bob Kerrey

    "If we end up saying that because these people are committing these acts of terrorism in Iraq or Afghanistan, that we shouldn't have done the removal of Saddam or the removal of the Taliban, then we are making a fundamental mistake about our own future, about security, about the values we should be defending in the world." TONY BLAIR

    "You can't bring the troops home if you give George Bush $100 billion to wage this war. You're not supporting them. You're keeping them in harm's way." CINDY SHEEHAN

    "There is no doubt ... that Al Qaeda is operating in Iraq. There is no doubt that we've had to take very strong measures against them. And there is no doubt that the Iraqi security forces have got to be strong enough to be able to withstand not just the violence that has been between the Sunni and the Shia population and the Sunni insurgency, but also Al Qaeda itself." GORDON BROWN

    "People of America: the world is following your news in regards to your invasion of Iraq, for people have recently come to know that, after several years of tragedies of this war, the vast majority of you want it stopped. Thus, you elected the Democratic Party for this purpose, but the Democrats haven't made a move worth mentioning. On the contrary, they continue to agree to the spending of tens of billions to continue the killing and war there." OSAMA BIN LADEN

    "Al Qaeda really hurt us, but not as much as Rupert Murdoch has hurt us, particularly in the case of Fox News. Fox News is worse than Al Qaeda--worse for our society. It's as dangerous as the Ku Klux Klan ever was."
    KEITH OLBERMANN

    "As Petraeus and Baghdad ambassador Ryan Crocker prepared to deliver their appraisal of Iraq to US lawmakers on Monday, left-wing group MoveOn.org took out a full-page newspaper advertisement to denounce 'General Betray Us.'

    "At a news conference following the gruelling sessions in Congress, Petraeus said an old friend had sent him a copy of Rudyard Kipling's poem 'If' -- which speaks of treating those 'two impostors,' triumph and defeat, just the same.

    "'I took some strength, I think, from that,' the four-star general said.

    "'Needless to say, to state the obvious, I disagree with the message of those who are exercising the First Amendment right (to free speech) that generations of soldiers have sought to preserve for Americans.

    "'Some of it was just flat, completely wrong. The rest was at least more than arguable,' Petraeus said of the ad, which coincided with some Democratic lawmakers' claims that the general was not an independent voice on Iraq."


    ###
    A class act responding to the absolute pathetic and irresponsible behavior of anti-American ideologues.

    Like......

    Keith Olbermann:

    "Which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? The Petraeus report, less Petraeus, more betray us"

    And this is my post today, the 1,596th day since the declaration of Mission Accomplished in Iraq.....

    I am cee, good night and good luck.

    KEITH OLBERMANN

    Jimmy Carter proved America's weakness by allowing and assisting the fall of a pro-American regime in Iran, and doing nothing about the Soviet-backed April, 1978 coup in Afghanistan — plus withdrawing support for the Somoza regime in Nicaragua, leading to the Cuban-backed Sandinista revolution in July, 1979.

    The Carter administration had made it crystal clear to the Kremlin that the U.S. would do little if anything to oppose the brutal influx of tens of thousands of Soviet troops that began moving into Afghanistan on Christmas Eve in 1979.

    They were right. Carter's tepid response to the aggression was:

    • An ineffectual grain embargo.

    • A boycott of the Moscow Olympics that hurt American athletes more than anyone.

    • An announcement from the president in an address to the nation shortly after New Year's in 1980 that "Fishing privileges for the Soviet Union in United States waters will be severely curtailed."

    The invasion enraged Osama bin Laden, who went to Afghanistan to join the resistance. There, he met Palestinian radical Muslim scholar Abdullah Azzam, whose slogan was "Jihad and the rifle alone: no negotiations, no conferences, no dialogues."

    According to author Lawrence Wright's Pulitzer Prize-winning history of al-Qaida, "The Looming Tower," "Bin Laden revered Azzam," who would travel to Saudi Arabia and hold "recruiting sessions in bin Laden's apartment, where he magnetized young Saudis with his portraits of the suffering of the refugees and the courage of the Afghan mujahideen."

    Azzam "provided a model for the man (bin Laden) would become," writes Wright.

    Together, bin Laden and Azzam founded the mujahideen base Maktab al-Khidamat, or the Afghan Services Bureau. Afghanistan is also where bin Laden met Ayman al-Zawahiri, who would help him found Maktab's successor group — al-Qaida.

    Unintended consequences are a common feature of world history. As Jimmy Carter takes snipes at the current president, Americans should not forget that Carter's insistence that America must be weak led directly to Islamic mass murderers becoming powerful enough to slaughter thousands of innocent Americans — and to their current ambition to incinerate millions of us.

    Jimmy Carter, the man who created Osama Bin Laden.

    Carter himself, speaking to reporters in January 1979 about the overthrow of the Shah of Iran, a little less than a year before the Soviet invasion, assured the world, "Certainly we have no desire or ability to intrude massive forces into Iran or any other country . . ."

    Carter promised: "This is something that we have no intention of ever doing in another country. We've tried this once in Vietnam. It didn't work, as you well know."

    Does this sound like anyone else we know?

    Sorry wanna (AAP)....Israel is a democracy and all of its adult citizens, including non-Jews, have the right to vote. They have a parlimentary system of government that is accountable to the people and is a shining light in an area of evil despotism....espeically Iran and Syria (the countries you seem to support)

    BTW, I am using the usual definition of the middle east to include....

    Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, the Palestinian territories, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

    Pakistan is part of another geographic area called southwest asia, but some do include Afghanistan and Pakistan in the middle east, so I will not make it an issue of contention.

    Have a nice day, wanna.

    And 9/11 was undertaken with the mistaken idea that The United States would not respond militarily and begin to allow our fear of terrorism to direct our foreign policy decisions.

    Instead, regimes supporting terrorists were taken out (Saddam and The Taliban) and those still participating in terrorism have been put on notice that such attacks will not be tolerated.

    Has The United States been attacked on our own soil since, wanna?

    It's called deterance....just like arming for nuclear war kept the your fellow secular leftists in the USSR from using them in the 20th century (which the left also protested), countries thinking about supporting radical terrorists see Iraq and Afghanistan and will think twice about harboring such fanatics.

    Face it, wanna, the left has no idea about how to protect our nation from the wonderful example of Jimmy Carter to how your pathetic ruling class treated General Petraeus today.....basically calling him a liar and failure.

    Nice....Anti-American and Anti-Freedom.....hurray for the fringe left!

    Phari-cee meant "Caphiristan", instead of "Middle East" I suspect. He's old-fashioned that way.

    Wanna, your attempt to eliminate Sudan from The Middle East is silly....Just like I said one could include southwest asian countries in the ill defined region, most and one may include Sudan, it is arguable, but it is done....

    The Middle east spans continents and is more a cultural/religious/historical region than geographic region....some specifically tied to the spread of Islam in the region. For an even larger list of nations some include.....go here....

    http://www.middleeastinfo.org/index.php

    Wanna, I really think you no longer want to just be wanna....you really desire the title "mental midget."

    As you can see, even at wiki (search "Middle east countries")....who exactly is considered within the region is debatable...Some incude Egypt, some do not, some include Afghanistan, some do not.....some inculde Sudan....some do not.

    Listen carefully, wanna.....your inability to comprehend written english and/or form a cogent thought and successfully present it for us all to happily read is just barely ahead of mental midget (why).....continue to try harder, you may just get there!

    I am now finished defending a definition of The Middle East....I will be glad to let you attempt to have the last word.

    Moo.

    O'lielly posts ' something serious' and the baby jesus weeps. HA! what a fucking loser.

    The idea that the war in Iraq is winnable is taking a foothold across America. The question asked is always " How many more American lives?....blah, blah, blah."
    The answer is " As many as it takes" The investment so far is only capable of showing dividends if we continue. Mike loathes the idea of "Freedom Watch" , the truth is, half of America is ready to support that notion. ONWARD!

    The only person who deletes posts is me, O'Lielly. And I've been a bit more proactive on it for the past week. Incredibly, it's taken you all that time to notice it, as you obviously just cut and paste like a madman without even bothering to read the posts or the threads. Good work.

    Since you brought it up, I will continue to delete spam when I see it. And for your information, spam will consist of an identical post pasted into multiple comment threads. Or a long cut-and-paste job that bears no relevancy to the topic of the post. And that goes double when you steal someone else's property and paste copyrighted material around as if you owned it.

    "All warfare is based on deception."
    The Art of War, Sun Tzu, ca. 400 B.C.

    Juan,

    Sun Tzu was specifically referring to deception of the enemy; these wars are based on the deception of those fighting it and paying for it.

    Not that the General of Wu would have balked at decieving the masses - most kingdoms have been built on doing this in spades - but that is not what the quote was addressing.

    Just hunting Phari-cee down to continue a discussion:

    Phari-cee wrote:

    "Israel believes that North Korea has been supplying Syria and Iran with nuclear materials, a Washington defense official told the New York Times. 'The Israelis think North Korea is selling to Iran and Syria what little they have left,' he said.

    "Meanwhile on Wednesday the Nazareth-based Israeli Arab newspaper The Assennara cited anonymous Israeli sources as saying that Israeli jets 'bombed a Syrian-Iranian missile base in northern Syria that was financed by Iran... It appears that the base was completely destroyed.'

    "According to the Times, American officials confirmed Tuesday that Israeli jets launched an airstrike inside Syria. Sources said that Israel struck at least one target in northeastern Syria, but could not provide more details.

    "The most likely target was, according to some administration officials, weapon caches sent by Iran to Hizbullah through Syria."


    ###
    Yep, these are the honest brokers the left (so brilliantly represented here at OW by Loin), want to leave Iraq to, while there is still a viable coalition government trying to reach reconciliation....
    -----------------------------------------------

    Honest brokers, Phari-cee? What about Israel launching unprovoked missile attacks based on what they identify as hunches - but which are more likely cases of "intelligence fixed around the policy" the way we do it.

    Why did we accept Iran's help in Afghanistan, if they are so fundamentally evil?Why did Syria protect our emabassy from assault by radical islamic terrorists last year?


    http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/meast/09/12/syria.embassy/index.html


    "The Syrians killed three attackers and apprehended a suspect outside the embassy after a car exploded near the walls of the American compound, the Syrian Information Ministry said.

    "I do think the Syrians reacted to the attack in a way that helped to secure our people, and we very much appreciate that," U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said while visiting Canada.

    Four attackers detonated the car bomb before attempting to storm the compound, the Syrian ministry said. (Watch officials go through evidence from the attack -- 5:43)

    The Syrian forces met the attackers, and an embassy guard was killed battling them, the ministry said."

    Pathetic, all of you.

    Who said it is NOT the issue. The question is the RIGHT to say it, which both MoveOn and Olbermann have--particularly since Petraeus has been on the losing end of a display of 'evidence' before.

    Those are the pictures you should be thinking about, not the picture of what some intern thought up as the caption for a story.

    As Mr. Olbermann detaches himself further and further from reality, we see in his incoherent ramblings the reasons why liberalism is dying. Normal people are repelled at the anger and hatred that he constantly directs at our country. However the dwindling number of liberals in our country however, continue to lap it up, thus assuring him a small lunatic fringe fan base for some time to come.

    Olbermann detached from reality? You morons cling to every word drooled out by your idiot-savant retard fetish/president across five years of pointless war; even as his own explanations and objectives change 180 degrees in order to keep his administration afloat. Just take a look at the range of bullshit you will accept from one selfish mouth:


    “Iraq will serve as a beacon; a beacon of freedom in a part of the world desperate for freedom and liberty.” George W. Bush; December 19, 2005

    “Victory in Iraq is a government that can sustain itself, govern itself, and defend itself” George W. Bush; June 9, 2006

    “Iraq will be a society in which there is relative peace. I say relative peace because if there is, like, no car bombings it will never happen that way” George W. Bush; February 14, 2007

    "Either we'll succeed, or we won't succeed. And the definition of success as I described is sectarian violence down. Success is not no violence. ... But success is a level of violence where the people feel comfortable about living their daily lives." George W. Bush; May 2, 2007

    “If the standard of success is no car bombings or suicide bombings we have just handed those who commit car bombings a huge victory” George W. Bush; April 24, 2007.


    That's one glorious, high-flying war you've got there, buddy! And you knuckle-draggers lap it up - happily; ecstatically. Self destructive mind-slaves are not a pretty sight.

    Jesus! The right is becoming more ineffectual every single day...

    Oh no! Someone called the General, "Betrayus"! Goodness, I didn't see that one coming. Will he cry on the air or wait until he gets to his special crying place?

    Blindrat says:

    "Oh no! Someone called the General, "Betrayus"! Goodness, I didn't see that one coming. Will he cry on the air or wait until he gets to his special crying place?"

    Blindrat gives his endorsement to the infathomably stupid and disgusting full page ad calling Petraes a liar and a traitor, the same man who was ovverwhelmingly confirmed by the Democratically controlled Senate. Only the frothing at the mouth left fringe of which blindrat is a charter member supports such utter lunacy, as they have supported such brilliant insights such as these:

    If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime -- Pol Pot or others -- that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners."

    You need to do a bit more research. People who post here are disgusted by Olbermann's lack of journalistic ethics and his cowardice in refusing to allow opposing views to challenge his ill informed opinions. Party affiliaition has nothing to do with it. Before you form an opinion about Olbermann being a truth teller, you should go here:

    Pleading demonic possession isn't going make anyone go easy on you....

    Olbermann goes into apoplexy over the necessity of literally saving the Republic from the rest of Bush's term, but when talking with Sen. Dodd, he seems to have treated the subject with the same depth as the Hsu scandal.

    Get this....from the transcript....and see that there is no follow-up (To the contrary there's an immediate deflection!) from apoplexy-man to Dodd's amazing admission!:


    Olbermann--- Does the Democratic Party at this point risk losing that vast majority now of Americans who want us out now? Do they—do you run collectively—I’m not saying you personally—but do you collectively run this idea that in some parallel to the way the White House is clearly stalling to stay there, that some Democrats at least want to stall so that this is part of the 2008 campaign at all costs?

    DODD: It would be a tragic mistake. And I think you hit it on the head. What I suspected was going on yesterday and today that will happen tomorrow night is just to keep this going long enough for this president to leave office and hand off this problem to his successor here. That’s buying time here. That’s an awful price to pay for the people who lose their lives, come back permanently injured, not to mention draining our treasury.

    I don’t know of anyone who believes that our military presence is going to resolve the civil conflict inside Iraq. And I come back to the fundamental question that every president must ask himself or herself, are we safer? Are we more secure? How vulnerable are we?

    And I would argue that we’re less safe, less secure, and far more vulnerable. We’ve turned Iraq into a Petri dish for Jihadists as a result of our presence there militarily. I have great respect for the military and the job they’ve done under the circumstances. But until we Democrats speak with clarity on this issue, I think we’re going to hurt ourselves. I think we’re going to be, in a sense, enabling the situation to persist.

    OLBERMANN: And also defining who we are as a people. I mentioned your new book. It would seem to have, at first blush, very little to do with the current political scene, “Letters from Nuremberg,” which is your father’s correspondence with your mother, serving at the Nazi war criminal trials.

    When Bovine comes around tell him to chalk this up to the 1002 dalmatians.

    The FRINGE element IS THE DEMOCRAT party. That's their rank and file now. The more out there the better. That's why Olbermann is their God-King. He buys into every far left lunatic THEORY there is and reports it as fact. And yes, if they throw a decorated military man under the bus for telling the truth, so be it. He won't report their lies the way they want them, the way Olbermann will so they crucify him. That is WHO they are.

    Like you've ever been invited anywhere... :D

    Mike, I'd settle for a canned NBC piece on the story.

    At least that would involve more than Olbermann setting up the issue with a "everyone does it" context....and more than Chris Cizzilla pronouncing the story "not all that damaging" and making the WONDERFUL understatement that "850,000 dollars is not an insubstantial amount of money"....


    Transcript:

    OLBERMANN: On to the Democrats, the Hillary Clinton campaign now deal with the sort of trouble that makes anyone’s rivals smile with that knowing awareness it could happen to them at any moment. She has to give back nearly 900,000 dollars, has to by her own judgment, raised by Norman Hsu, this fugitive for years after he was convicted of swindling voters. He raised money from a long list of Democrats.

    But how could it happen and how damaging has it been or is this a blip on the Clinton march?

    CILLIZZA: Again, I go to that in a vacuum, I don’t think it’s all that damaging. But as a narrative it’s potentially damage for her. Everyone knows about the campaign finance irregularities in the Clinton administration. It’s one of lasting legacies of the Clinton administration. Hillary Clinton does not want—she wants to remind voters she was part of the Clinton administration for the balanced budget and peace at home and all those things. She doesn’t want to remind them that she was there for the Monica Lewinsky and the campaign finance troubles.

    This reminds them of one of those things, so it’s not good. I think that’s why you’re seeing her returning -- 850,000 dollars is not an insubstantial amount of money, when you talk about fund raising. I think she’s taking such a drastic step because she wants to close the story down. She wants to say, any money that this guy gave me or helped raise is now out. We didn’t know about it. It’s not going to happen again, and hope the story ends there.


    [Olbermann moving quickly on..]

    OLBERMANN: The other story, Chris, Barack Obama in Iowa, ironically enough in Clinton, Iowa—and what a headline that offers people—but he delivered what his campaign called this major policy speech,

    Yeah, the impact and scope of Abramoff donations would be that he gave to both Republican and Democrats..... Hsu seems to be a Democratic Party subsidiary, who bundled donations from people who suspiciously had no explainable way of donating the amounts they donated.... Let's hope we find out who or what foreign govt. was bankrolling them....

    Then we'll have some more impact and scope right, pinhead?

    How did the "massive impact" of the Abramoff "scandal" (ding!) personally affect you or anyone you know?

    Then we'll have some more impact and scope right, pinhead?

    Abramoff gave FAR more to Republicans than he gave to Democrats, it encompassed virtually ALL of the K-Street cesspool....AND congress....and you know it.

    You just couldn't stand the idea of maintaining even a modicum of civility, could you?....bitch!

    Jeff: "How did the "massive impact" of the Abramoff "scandal" (ding) personally effect you or anyone you know?

    What an incredibly stupid argument?

    How did the 911 attacks personally effect "you or anyone you know"?

    Posted by: Mike at September 13, 2007 10:03 PM


    Abramoff is a registered lobbyist. The donations were easily traceable.

    You have no idea what you have with Hsu so it's especially idiotic of you to make the judgment you did.

    In the Hsu case donations were bundled from people who from all outward appearances had no ability to contribute the sums they did. They got the money somewhere my friend... and the impact and scope of THAT particular circumstance may be dynamite...

    It's that sort of endless and willful spinning on your part that makes you one of the biggest party shill on the board.

    Cecelia: "It's that sort of endless and willful spinning on your part that makes you one of the biggest party shill on the board."

    The problem with THAT idiotic analysis is that the ONLY reason I identify with the democrats at all is your party's idiotic war. Otherwise, the issues all counterbalance in my view.

    I don't even like Hillary that much. I'd much rather see Obama or Edwards pull ahead, so I don't really have a dog in this fight. That said, I believe the Hsu situation is more of a molehill than it is a mountain....and if I am wrong, I'm sure the full story will come out well before the election.

    Cecelia, you handled that better than I would have and gave him way too much respect. Just my opinion. What's that, the 4th or 5th time he's called you that? He probably treats his "beautiful" and "intelligent" wife the same way, sadly.

    I was implying that there was no "massive impact" to the Abramoff story. It was a mountain made out of a molehill by the far left media. mike had to get all frothy and he missed the point, simple as it was.

    Well, thanks for clearing that up.... Your utter hatred for Bush has put you in the position that you find nothing embarrassing in making the remark that you made.

    Olbermann spends less than 30 seconds on a huge story that is as yet not fully investigated and that could lead to a trail of money from a foreign power attempting to influence American elections (if Hsu isn't pushing up daisies very shortly...) and you respond about "impact and scope" and "case reopened".

    Case closed...

    Jeff: "mike had to get all frothy and he missed the point,"

    No Jeff, I didn't miss your point....Nobody ever misses YOUR simplistic points, .... I ignored it, .... because, as usual, it was a very stupid point, .... and you are wrong, as usual.

    Well, he knows it's the internet and he can say it without having to get his butt kicked by my beautiful and intelligence husband...

    Cecelia: My "hatred for Bush" is based on nothing other than logical thought, patriotism, and genuine fear for the future of my country.

    Whether you are Democrat OR Republican, I have a very difficult time comprehending those who choose to continue to defend and support a president who willfully and dishonestly led us into an ill advised and expensive war that is literally tearing this country apart.

    I strongly believe that he let us ALL down, ..... and someday all of us will understand and appreciate that.

    Jeff: "Whats that, the 4th or 5th time he's called you that?".....Actually it's the second, and jeff conveniently chooses to ignor the instigating insult that Cecelia threw my way FIRST....but I expect that kind of bias out of Jeff. What I DIDN'T expect either time was for Cecelia to first call me a 'Liar' the first time, and then a 'pinhead' the second time.

    "He probably treats his "beautiful" and "intelligent" wife the same way, sadly."....Actually, while our marriage isn't perfect, I have never called her anything like that in 22 years of marriage, nor have I ever raised a hand to her. That said, she has NEVER called me anything like a "pinhead" or a "liar" either.

    Cecelia: "Hsu! Hsu! Somebody...Hsu!"

    Phari-cee: " I don't worship Bush...every day I might internalize again and again and again his unyielding concept of Freedom; and he's never done anything wrong ever...EVER! But he is not my fetish the way that Stalin and Hitler are YOUR fetishes, you far left socialist secular humanist."


    Cecelia: "Hsu! over here - hey!....HSU!"


    Cecelia: "Hsu! over here - hey!....HSU!"

    Here I am arguing that the case deserved more than 30 seconds from Olbermann and a mischaracterization from Mike, and you're accusing me of overplaying it... while you're in mid-yawn!....

    As usual, Loin, your characterizations are a mirror to your own soul... :D

    What an idiot you are !

    Posted by: at September 13, 2007 11:35 PM


    With those debating skills you could be Keith Olbermann....

    Go to MrRichardCranium.com for all the best Olbermann coverage! I said coverage? I meant bashing...Oh and we got other shit too. Did I say shit? I meant it.

    Well, surely in the midst of your "logical thought, and patriotism and genuine fear for my country", you could admit that Olbermann downplayed the Hsu story in a way he'd never do with Rudy....instead of using your feelings about Bush, his supporters, and the war as your excuse to make any lamebrain contrived defense you can offer.... simply because you don't like Olbermann's critics.

    Or is that too logical and reasonable for you?

    Wrong, mike. You called Cecelia a bitch 3 times in one night a while back. Once tonight makes 4.

    Mike never admits he's wrong, never apologizes. Sounds just like Olby doesn't he?

    Cecelia: "or is that too logical and reasonable for you?

    How does it help your argument if I agree with you for about the hundreth time that yes, Keith Olbermann is biased?

    If you'll remember, my defense of that bias was that it is a necessary counterbalance to Fox's own bias. Did you forget?

    Now if you'll recall, this entire discussion began with your question about whether or not he covered the Hsu story at all. I answered honestly and matter of factly that he had.

    Folks on your side, including you, then chose to escalate the argument into whether or not he had covered it ENOUGH, or fairly, .... but that was never the original question.

    For you to expect Keith Olbermann to drop all bias is akin to me expecting Shawn Hannity to suddenly stop rabidly defending this stupid war.

    It ain't gonna happen, nor should it!

    "Mike never admits he's wrong, never apologizes."

    What exactly do I have to apologize for?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Sounds jut like Olby doesn't it?"

    Sounds more like President Bush.

    With your disposition, you could be Squeaky Fromme.

    Why do you keep leaving out the things she called me to instigate those comments?

    You mean as YOU put it.... WDYC.... :D

    I have a 47 year nephew with down's syndrome. He hs never learned to talk well or take care of himself.

    He does have one amazing ability though. He can ride in a car with you for hundreds of miles on a trip in which you make 40 or 50 wrong turns. On the return trip, he will recall every single turn you make and which direction it was made.

    Jeff reminds me of my nephew: He has no common sense, no reasoning ability, no sense of proportion, and no sense of balance, .... but he sure can recall who said what on a discussion board, even though he gets the details wrong a lot.

    Wrong, mike. You called Cecelia a bitch 3 times in one night a while back. Once tonight makes 4.

    This really makes sense to you, doesn't it....

    It was just you honestly rushing in to say "Yes, he had"..... so when someone else makes has the expectation that he should have spent more than 30 sec. on it..... you just had to then jump back and "honestly" imply that they are unreasonable hacks... excused that by saying you don't like Dems much, but Bush makes you crazy.... and now you're saying that you're being asked once again to say that Olbermann is biased when you've repeatedly said that before....


    Sheesh! You could have saved yourself all this trouble if you'd just said, Yeah, Olbermann's biased and should have spent more time on Hsu.... in the first place...

    I don't think Cecilia would have ever made it as one of the Manson gals.

    Charlie would have said, That bitch is nuts " !

    I believe you and so therefore Manson WOULD most likely think that you're groovy, WDYC.

    If anyone could delve into the mind of Manson, it's you.... :D

    "Sheesh! You could have saved yourself all this trouble if you'd just said, yeah, Olbermann's biased and should have spent more time on Hsu.... in the first place..."

    But I don't agree he should have spent more time on Hsu.

    And it was no trouble at all.

    Stop the presses: Cecilia liked a republican president !

    So this stuff about your opposing what you call an "escalation"in the discussion is yet another smokescreen.

    We're back again to the fact that you were calling people unreasonably critical of Olbermann not because they are that.... but because you don't think the story merits much coverage in the first place.

    Full circle...as usual....

    Cecelia: "yet another smokescreen"

    Not really. My comment was simply an observation that Keith Olbermann could never do anything to satisfy his detractors ..... nothing short of dying, that is.

    Yes, you really felt that it made sense for you to imply that they are unreasonable in the context of their wanting more than 30 seconds spent on a story that's been front page news for days. And this simply because little ole you doesn't think it merits the coverage....

    We again arrive at the summation that this more illustrative of your own unreasonableness and bias than theirs...

    Case closed.

    Anything to distract from the facts. Cee read your own hypocrisy in this post and your comments that follow. Baby killer.

    Someone has a man crush. Cute how he set up a site just for his thinly veiled lust for Keith. Come out wherever you are... Why do you hate people and want to see them blown to smithereens?

    Posted by: The Factor at September 12, 2007 4:49 PM
    Wahh Wahh!!! But-but Carter... really grasping for straws now.
    What about Raygun's crack selling and arms to Iran to fund the contras death squads? What about the millions that have died under brutal regimes (Sadam, The Shah, Pinochet, etc) the US has backed?

    In my book PEOPLE come first. In yours profit and power at the expense of OTHER peoples lives.
    Support the war and the troops (not the paper pusher like betrayus) by enlisting. The troops really need a break from repeated combat tours.

    The CONs have killed the republican party. Lincoln is spinning in his grave.

    That other post was not from me.

    Right. You only post under one name and never anonomously. Exceot when your lies and deceptions catch up with you. Which is daily.
