Commentary of These Times

Olbermann says it all, so we don't have to.

I don't remember at any time during the terms in office of last 3 presidents where it was considered necesary and just for any political party to be accused of being "treasonous", "defeatist", "Un-American", "Godless", etc.
I am sure it happened, but it was never considered a main-stream talking point as it seems to be now.

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.

We hear every day of new plans, new efforts to murder Americans and other free people. ... But this is still not well recognized or fully understood. It seems that in some quarters there’s more of a focus on dividing our country than acting with unity against the gathering threats.

I don't see how you can lead this country to succeed in Iraq if you say wrong war, wrong time, wrong place. What message does that send our troops? What message does that send to our allies? What message does that send the Iraqis?
