    Flashback: Keith Olbermann on the Surge

    Nothing better then when Gibson neuters Olbermann and exposes him as the joke that he is. Olbermann should stick to memorizing the stats on the back of baseball cards and leave the real stuff to real reporters.

    "Stupid traitor"...well put. I can't think of two better words to describe Olbermann.

    The Viagra song brought back bad memories, namely the commercial with which it played...

    Good stuff, J$.

    gibby always satisfies my olbergrudge when he goes after olbermann.

    Even so the surge may be working, I still have my fellow American traitors who will never believe it!

    Onward Anonymous! Onward Why don't you think! Onward Sir Loin! Never have trust in your president or your country! Onward Mike!

    Allah is on our side no matter how well the Americans are doing now.

    With all of you disgracing your country with your treacherous lies and propaganda it can only further our cause!

    Remember, that for us to win you MUST always go against your country at all costs!

    You make me so proud, because I have seen how you react to anything that is positive for your country and president, and I have no doubt that you will once again not let me down by condemning this surge and your country!

    Allah loves you as do I, because however bad it may get for my fellow terrorists I can always count on you to see the wrong in your country winning at anything.

    Akuba, Ayeeee!!!!!!

    "'Stupid traitor'...well put. I can't think of two better words to describe Olbermann".....

    And many who post on this site, VRossi....

    Like I mentioned before, Olbermann and the rest of the radical left were gleeful when Iraqi civilian deaths and American/Iraqi forces deaths were reported because it was necessary for their political plans....NOW that there is news thwarting their predictions and stance....IT IS BURIED...look at all of the usual leftists' being absent from this thread to defend their macabre tendencies....

    Oh boy...instead they are on other OW threads discussing sodomy, church scandals and political books.

    What will the left do now about Iraq?....As improvements continue and the US military command plan a drawdown...will the anti-American left demand speedier and less well thought out plans like they did 1 year ago and were shown to be wrong?!....And how will their incorrect predictions about the surge be handled 6 months from now when the left's ruling class presidential candidate has to answer for his/her wrong predictions about the American troops' successful handling of Al Queda in Iraq and the claimed, "endless bloody civil war?"

    I would LOVE to hear from mental midget, Mike, wannawipe, Lucy, Anonymous or any other of the radical and wrong OW leftists on that "endless bloody civil war" stuff you all wrote about 8 months ago when Bush ignored you and the feckless 20%-ers and continued to defend freedom of thought and denocracy in Iraq! He, he, he....

    Amen Mike,
    Tomorow be thankful that the US is headed towards a victory rather than a defeat as the democrats proclaimed in 2007. Democrats and Republicans both need to be thankful for the positive progress our military has made regardless of the barrieres created here and abroad.

    Put your political hackery aside tomorrow and give a thanks to our men in uniform.

    So the difference between haning bunting and what anon with spaces just did with his demogogic swill at 8:36 is, what?...

    Your opinion about yourself is very amuzing, anon with spaces....The facts on the ground in Baghdad remain unaddressed by those who preordained failure with just as silly words as you try to conjour up today.....

    How about that anon with spaces?.....Keith Olbermann called the leader of the armed forces in Iraq a traitor based on his NY/NJ anchor desk derived predictions that the surge would fail and kill more Americans and Iraqis....the facts now suggest that was an ill conceived prediction....

    So to change the sbuject to bunting verses mindless use of great quotes (BTW....NO difference there), is once again attempted and it fails.....

    Oh, and by the way, this pseudochickenhawk argument also shows us all how unprepared you really are to defend what this thread demanded you defend....Your's and Olbermann's anti-American schtick.....

    "RESIGN!"

    Sure- I will too

    Olby is a paranoid leftist with a TV show. What do you expect?

    Ditto anon!

    Thanksgiving - a true american holiday!
    Hard to be partisan about tomorrow.

    I've never been convinced he actually believes the BS he's spouting. This is a guy who just 2 years ago said that if he did vote, he'd vote for McCain. That's hardly the words of a radical leftist. Olbermann truly believes he's superior to all the other broadcasters on television and his low ratings were a mark of shame for him, as well they should have been. So what did he do? Become the anti-O"Reilly and the darling of the radical leftist set. For him, it was a good career move. I don't think his clueless fans have figured out it's all an act with him yet, and he's too good of an actor to let on but his words 2 years ago re McCain are telling, and he said them more than once on the Dan Patrick radio show. What's even more confounding is that he has all these girly fans who have set up websites in his honor and quiver with excitement every time their pretend boyfriend opens his mouth. Yet these are the very same fans he branded as ugly "Leonas" in his Playboy interview and told them what he really thought about them ("Please don't oogle me unless you look like Jennifer Lopez").

    "I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States,
    and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands,
    to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of
    Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.
    And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to
    Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble
    penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His
    tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or
    sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged,
    and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds
    of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine
    purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union."

    Abraham Lincoln
    Source: October 3, 1863 - Proclamation of Thanksgiving


    ###
    I think this is very applicable to every American in regards to the disgustingly partisan disunion necessary for the growth of any radical ideology that pits American against American.

    Do you agree, anon with spaces?

    Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well.

    A N O N,

    Let me slap you around a little bit.

    "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism."
    -Thomas Jefferson

    I don't know if Jefferson ever said this but it is an idiotic statement. Was the highest form of patriotism during the American Revolution that of one dissenting against the revolution? I think not.

    "To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”
    -Theodore Roosevelt

    I do not disagree with the above statement but your criticism of Bush is due to the fact that you are fucked up in the head. I use the term Suicidal Leftist Dingbat to describe your disease.

    "Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism."
    -George Washington

    Since you suicidal leftist dingbats are screaming nonsense like "dissent is the highest form of patriotism" you are the ones claiming to be the biggest patriots. So the Father of our Country is talking about you.

    "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."
    -Samuel Johnson

    Same answer as the one above.

    "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of the patriot and tyrant. It is it's natural manure."
    -Thomas Jefferson

    What does this one even mean? That Jefferson thinks we should have a civil war every now and then to keep things pure?

    "War does not determine who is right, only who is left."
    -Anonymous

    In the War on Terror I want us Infidels left and the enemy not left. What do you want?


    "Patriotism is fierce as a fever, pitiless as the grave, blind as a stone and irrational as a headless hen."
    -Ambrose Bierce

    By definition, a Suicidal Leftist Dingbat is a diseased individual, wanting Bush to lose in Iraq more than they want their own side to win. "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism", right? Your BDS is irrational.

    "Many a bum show has been saved by a flag."
    -George M. Cohan

    This reminds me of when California Governer Gray Davis ran for re-election after 911. That's all he talked about, as if California was struck on that day. What an idiot.

    Posted by: A N O N Y M O U S at November 21, 2007 8:36 AM

    Yesterday, Olbermann was "creeped" out that Neil Diamond wrote "Sweet Caroline" revealing he was inspired by a picture of then 10 year old Caroline Kennedy.

    Lets do some math folks. Olbermann was a LA sportscaster in 1990. He was friends with reporter Robert Tur (Katy Turs' father). Katy is 23, meaning she was BORN in 1984---so in 1990 SHE was 6 YEARS OLD!

    Dude--remember that saying about "stones & glass houses"...Take a look in the mirror Olberphile, YOU ARE THE CREEPY ONE!

    Patsy,

    Are you A N O N 's evil twin Skippy?

    And you really should not use the word "PUSSY" because it reminds us all that you have never even seen one. No doubt your biggest fear is that a naked woman would appear before you and demand that you ravish her. Not that that could ever happen.

    Look out, Patsy. Mommy is looking for you. It's time for your daily enema.

    Repeat...."I would LOVE to hear from mental midget, Mike, wannawipe, Lucy, Anonymous or any other of the radical and wrong OW leftists on that "endless bloody civil war" stuff you all wrote about 8 months ago when Bush ignored you and the feckless 20%-ers and continued to defend freedom of thought and democracy in Iraq!"

    I will only be thankful on Thursday if the IslamoFacists win in Iraq oir another terrorist attack occurs in the US. That is what i will cheer, and be thankful for.

    Otherwise it will be obvious that I wasted my last 7 years crusading against Bush who happened to be right. THE HORROR!

    Holy biased-ass-kiss-fest Batman, TVnewser is reporting "bad" news (kinda) about Olbermann:

    Olbermann's November
    With a few days left in the Nielsen ratings month of November, Countdown with Keith Olbermann is trending down in one measurement.

    From Oct. 29 to Nov. 16, vs. the same time period last year, Countdown is down 6% in the A25-54 demo (live +SD). If this continues, it will be the first time since September 2006 that Olbermann has not seen monthly growth in the all-important demo. As for total viewers, Olbermann is up 13% for the month when compared to the same time period last year.

    It should be noted November 2006 included election night, during which MSNBC drew 23% of the A25-54 cable crowd from 7pmET-2amET. If the night is excluded (Countdown having been preempted) the show is flat in the demo year-to-year.

    You bring great stuff NewsUse!
    Kudos!
    I am thankful for you too.

    With behavior beyond the pale
    And career that's destined to fail
    Keith's out on a limb
    His bulb is quite dim
    NBC took away his email

    Gibson is a douche.

    Olbermann made guarantees and guess what? They came true! And all Gibson had to comment with was "HA!".

    More Americans died, more Iraquis died, he lost congress to the Democrats, he lost the faith of some house and senate republicans, lost the military, etc.

    All Gibson has to say is "Olbermann go back to sports casting".


    Gibson never disproves anything Olbermann says, he just says "go back to sportscasting". Ahh gotta love wingnut radio.


    So Gibson, got proof that the house WASNT lost to the democrats?
    got proof the senate WASNT lost to the democrats?
    got proof more military troops WERENT killed since the surge?
    got proof that suggests some republicans havent lost faith in Bush?
    got proof that suggest the military is still fully behind Bush?


    That 8:30 segment was nothing more than Gibson taking bits from Olbermann, laughing at them and not using once OUNCE of proof or one FACT which would disprove the comments by Olbermann or give him any suitable reason to laugh. Gibson just laughs it up and calls Olbermann unamerican. I guess we should expect nothing more from wingnut radio.

    "They came true!"

    Got proof of all that asswipe...?
    Now that is funny

    Only one word for this guy - Olberkind

    Really two, Schadenfreude, about the decojonified poser

    Keep it up Anonymous! Outside of my biggest cell Olbermann, you have served me well. The riches of adn will be waiting for you when your time has come, as Allah is my witness!

    Posting all those quotes out of context by the infidel rebel leaders of your past was a stroke of genious!

    Not to mention posting it and honoring America's holy day of Thanksgiving with it is about as crude and unAmerican as one can get!

    You never fail to surprise me with the evilness you comprise inside that treacherous heart of yours towards America, but with this nice touch of putting down American's for their liberty on their holiday no less, is surely the work of a master hater in his prime!

    Allah has blessed me with someone like you, and you have certainly been in aqeedah with Him!

    You are priceless my son, and what in the bismillah will you come up with next?

    Akuba. Ayeeee!!!!!!


    ..and to Rico:

    It is Americans like you who put the fear of Allah in me. When I pray to the Almighty, I keep asking for the answers of how to precisely cut down your evil country, and Allah Himself has said that I must get more like my loyal insurgents Anonymous to help me.

    But alas, I fear with the likes of you and the rest of your ilk that this will not be an easy task. How am I to achieve such a abrar victory if you and your kind have so much natural love for their country?

    Have you not been listening to your fellow Americans, Olbermann, anonymous, why don't you think, etc? Take the low road my son.

    Lay down and give up by turning your back on this evil country of yours as the formentioned traitors have so easily done, and I promise you that the paradise you seek here on this planet will only be 100 times multiplied when you die, as the afterlife will be so much more satisfying!

    Give up Rico, and remember one of those quotes my loyal terrorist anonymous left for
    you: "War does not determine who is right, only who is left" so give up now as you know that even if you fight to the death I have your own Americans on my side so you can't win.

    Obviously, if all of America felt the way you do then my cause would be lost, but look around you, and can't you see how the cowards and traitors are taking hold?!

    Come over to my side Rico, and to hell with being thankful for a country that used to take itself serious by honoring their hero's, as now with all my cells firmly planted throughout it those hero's are slowly but surely being condemned and defiled by your own people!

    I control 75% of the newspapers in America, all these terrorists on this site, and of course my most brilliant cell Olbermann, so give it up Rico as the America you once knew is now nearly gone. Why hold out any longer?

    Akuba. Ayeeeeee!!!!

    "They came true!"
    Got proof of all that asswipe...?
    Now that is funny

    What is funnier is that proof does exist...

    Lets see...
    B.ush lost control of the senate - hmm its now 51-49 in favor of the Democrats after the 2006 midterms
    B.ush lost control of the house - hmm its now 233-201 in favar of the Democrats after the 2006 midterms
    Troop deaths have increased since the surge - you might want to check out http://icasualties.org/oif/. In the 236 days since the surge, there have been 788 US troop deaths, an average of around 3.34 deaths per day. In the 236 days PRIOR to the surge there were 698 US troop deaths, an average of around 2.98 deaths per day. This of course does not figure in the recent CBS report which says the pentagon is covering up military deaths (http://www.opednews.com/maxwrite/linkframe.php?linkid=45912 ).
    Troops have lost faith in B.ush - well, lets see here, the approval rating from troops is near 33%, down from 65% in 2003 according to the Military Times.
    Republicans are losing faith in B.ush - early polls from the WallStreetJournal found senate republicans have a 30% B.ush job-approval rating.

    The proof is out there, you just need to get your head out of your ass and stop listening to the idiocy that is John Gibson.

    You ignoramuses that say we're heading toward victory in Iraq have no clue: violence there is still too high according to our own military and is only down to January 2006 levels.

    There needs to be provincial elections and local control of all 18 Iraqi provinces before we talk about REAL, sustained momentum in Iraq that could be termed as "victory." Until then, all this good news on dropped violence is temporary and unsustainable unless the power-sharing and political agreements/reconciliations between the main ethnic groups happens.

    It's just amazing how all these pro-Iraq war folks on the blogs never talk about and basically ignore the fact that 4 1/2 years into this Iraq war that only 8 or 9 of Iraq's 18 provinces have been turned from coalition-to-local control. There's no excuse for that. Most, if not all these regions should've been handed over to Iraqi control by now.

    Yes, southern Shiite and northern Kurdish provinces are among the ones that were turned over to Iraqi control this and last year, but Maliki said when the surge started that he thought all 18 provinces would be out of coalition hands by this month (November)!

    You want REAL, sustainable progress? Local control/security and the announcement of local elections in '08 for all of Iraq's regions is how you attain it (not just a few months worth of less violence, as we've seen that movie before).

    charlie- its even funnier that you choose to ignore all the progress made in the last six months. We get it. You don't like the war, but your sheer refusal to admit that victory is attainable shows your just a partisan democrat that would prefer to see a US failure in Iraq so you win in 2008.

    There is progress. FACT. Yet the democrats continue to whine. Its hard to see this pro-america base you claim to have. Rejoice in the good news, quit bitching about the past 6 years in Iraq. The corner has been turned.

    A victory is good for all americans. And yes, the republicans will be able to gloat. But failure would hurt all of the US. But you continue to put party ahead of country. Pathetic and ignorant.

    Gotta love all these
    pseudo-patriots that
    hate when the news
    from Iraq is good.

    Have a pitty party fools.
    Victory will be sweet, and
    you can pout as the american
    flags march by!

    Thank you G Bush

    Olbermann on the surge: "This will lead, sir, to only war, More war and neverending war."

    Right, because if we pull out of Iraq - as KO wants us to do - the war will be over.

    Bush is causing the war. Not the terrorists. Not al-Qaeda. Not the militias. Not the former Baathist insurgents.

    Bush is causing it. Our troops are causing the war.

    If we leave, all of the above groups will lay down their arms and live in peace.

    Who believes this? I might have some old Enron stock around that you might be interested in.

    Hey I just wanted to thank you for watching Olberman, because someone has to and he turns my stomach.

    Gracias mi amigos and have a great Turkey Day! :)

    Here is something Olbermann and his acolytes will NOT be talking about tomorrow (symbolically, tommorrow being the day after the 2008 elections):

    1. WMD's owned by Saddam Hussain will have been found before November, 2008. (Probably in Syria).

    2. Osama bin Laden will be captured or killed before November 2008. (Probably in Afganistan).

    3. Olbermann will be hauled away by burly men in white coat to a destination where he should have been confined to, many months ago. (Most definitely in the United States, where traitors are tried or put in insane asylums).

    4. Presidency and Congress will be recaptured by Republicans by a landslide, not known since the Ronald Reagan landslide.

    5. "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" will be cancelled. Even the rabidly Left-wing looney MSNBC could not support financial suicide.

    Yukon Jack: from the President B.ush's mouth, on transcript:

    "Now, look, part of the reason we went into Iraq was -- the main reason we went into Iraq at the time was we thought he had weapons of mass destruction. It turns out he didn't, but he had the capacity to make weapons of mass destruction."

    http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2006/08/20060821.html

    And you should look at the polls you dope...
    Hell, even FoxNews reports it: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,264857,00.html

    Just head over to Rasmussen Reports, they have all the poll numbers.
    DEMs lead GOP in the following states, and for the most part are expected to go to the DEM's:
    Virginia (Vacated GOP seat)
    New Hampshire (GOP incumbent)
    New Mexico (Vacated GOP seat)
    Colorado (Vacated GOP seat)

    And depending on how campaigning goes in the following states, these too could become potential DEM seats:
    Minnesota (GOP incumbent)
    Nebraska (Vacated GOP seat)
    Oregon (GOP incumbent)

    Heck, even Maine, Kentucky, and Alaska could be potential battlegrounds (all with GOP incumbents)...(the gap in Maine has been closing, McConnells approval in Kentucky is ridiculously low, and there are mentions of Anchorage mayor D-Mark Begich entering the Alaska race).

    People who have been analyzing the 2008 senate races say that DEM's should pick up at least 3 seats, and could pick up as many as 6.


    That would put it as low as 53-47 or as high as 56-44...

    Is "Yukon Jack" for real?!?!?!

    "Who believes this? I might have some old Emron stock around that you might be interested in."

    Great analogy!

    But you have it backwards.

    The same types who believed in Emron right up until they were led over the cliff can be compared to the ones who keep buying what this administration is selling....even as they edge closer and closer to that proverbial cliff.

    "The same types who believed in Emron right up until they were led over the cliff can be compared to the ones who keep buying what this administration is selling.."

    So, you believe - as KO stated - that we can end the war in Iraq by pulling all of our troops out?

    That's all we have to do?

    Because our presence there is the cause of the violence?

    It's not al-Qaeda, it's not the Baathists that were removed from power, it's not radical Shi'a militias, it's not hired thugs paid to plant bombs.

    No, it's the US.

    "The same types who believed in Emron right up until they were led over the cliff can be compared to the ones who keep buying what this administration "

    This is the type of response that is ALWAYS given when someone challenges the statements or comments by Olbermann.

    The respondent don't stick to the topic at hand. They don't respond to the subject matter of KO's reporting or commentary.

    No, the rejoinder always - always - is Bush. Bush. Bush. Bush.

    Amazing really.

    If you can't defend Olbermann's reporting/journalism (whatever one calls it), just say so. Just please stop trying to change the topic that has nothing to do with the issue at hand.

    It would be like someone responding to criticism of Bill O'Reilly's by responding, "But that's what Olbermann does!!" or "What about Nancy Pelosi and the liberals"!!

    Absurd.

    I would respect the Olbermann defenders more if they just came right out and said: "We don't care whether his journalism is unfair, inaccurate or tendentious. We don't care whether he is little more than a mouthpiece for David Brock and the liberal web sites".

    "He hates Bush and that's good enough for me".

    End the charade. Stop the pretense. Toss out the disingenuosness.

    As long as he goes after Bush, he can do and say whatever he wants.

    Finally. Someone gets it about what is wrong with the Olbermann loons and their cult mentality. But they can't admit he's wrong or biased or they'd have to admit their own wrongs and biases. That's how much they have invested in Olbermann. It's why his female fans still defend him even after he told them in his Playboy interview he didn't want them oogling him unless they all looked like Jennifer Lopez and that he was afraid they all looked like Leona Helmsley. THAT is the true Keith Olbermann, the one who has one-night stands with fans in cheap NYC hotel rooms. The guy who lives with a 21-year old girl. The guy who regularly insults gays and women on his nighttime opinion-based program. THAT is the real Keith Olbermann, not the beacon of good journalism and fairness they've made him out to be. And what's worse is that they're afraid to admit it to themselves, let alone to one another.

    WDYT - Did you think I want to live with a 21 year old girl?

    You are so very wrong, as usual.
