It's funny to watch how Olbermann starts off with "I think I can speak on your behalf..." Of course he can, while George Soros provides the bank, Krazy Keith is the leader of the nimrods at MSNBC and their barely watched network. Good for the former President to call them out, too bad he didn't mention what a misogynist Keith is too.
Perhaps the 41st president still has it in him - at least when it comes to the left crying foul about the so-called uncivil political discourse on right, but being equally if not worse on the left - particularly on MSNBC, the "Place for Politics."
In an interview on Oct. 16 with CBS Radio, former President George H.W. Bush took a very critical tact with MSNBC hosts Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow, deeming them "a couple of sick puppies." (via MSNBC's Oct. 16 "The Rachel Maddow Show")
"I don't like it," Bush said. "I think the cables have a lot to do with it. I'll take you back to when I was president - we got tons of criticism, but didn't seem day in and day out quite as personal as some of these talk show people."

Not only does Sanchez apologize, but MSNBC host (and Olbermann wannabee) David Shuster backs up on "racist" quotes he also claimed Rush made. In other words, both CNN and MSNBC are smart enough to know that attributing "racist" quotes to a big-name like Limbaugh (esp. after he got dumped from the group that's trying to buy the St. Louis Rams) could make for a huge case of libel. Sanchez and Shuster aren't being sincere here, they're just looking out for their jobs, much less their higher-ups wallets.
Unbelievable that this would happen in a post-racial America what with a half-Black man as President...well that's what the Left would have you believe.
Mao Tse Tung was a man who had millions of his people imprisoned and killed in gulags. It's like showing "respect" for Hitler. The insanity that exists inside the Obama administration displays its true colors once again.
It's been well-documented that most of our popular comedians have been scared to make jokes about The One--after all, they risk ruining their career as the Left has made it clear that any joke about the Liar-In-Chief is well.....RACIST!!! That's why it's so good to see Tracy Morgan stand up to the Obama stans and do his job making people laugh no matter who's the target.

Meghan McCain, blogger and daughter of former presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, threatened to quit Twitter this week and then apologized to her nearly 60,000 followers on the social media site after posting a racy picture of herself in a tank top Wednesday night."Spontaneous" my ass. Anyone who pays attention to John McCain's RINO daughter is well aware of how much of an attention-whore she is. What with all the GOP-bashing and kissing the ass of liberals as Meghan does, people are still waiting for one coherent statement on why she exactly she's a Republican. Funny too that she'd take so much offense at being called a "slut", but then maybe she's never heard that if you walk like one, talk like one and dress like one . . . . .
Describing it as a snapshot of her "spontaneous" night in, the photo showed a scantily covered McCain holding an Andy Warhol biography in her hand.
Apparently responding to criticism, McCain quickly followed up her picture with a longer explanation.
"So I took a fun picture not thinking anything about what I was wearing but apparently anything other than a pantsuit I am a slut," she wrote, later adding "I can't even tell you how hurt I am."
Soon after, she considered closing her Twitter account altogether.
Barack Obama Doesn't Care About Black People Part 3: Takes 9 Months To Visit Hurricane Savaged New Orleans
Slightly more than four years after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast, President Obama is traveling to New Orleans today to fulfill a campaign promise to survey first-hand the city's recovery.
Obama will visit the Martin Luther King Charter School in the city's Lower 9th Ward, a neighborhood devastated by the floodwaters of Katrina after the city's levees were breached. The charter school was the first to be rebuilt following Katrina. On the second anniversary of the hurricane, former President George W. Bush visited the school and met with Louisiana education officials.
Obama will also hold a town hall meeting with members of the New Orleans community.
But before the president even steps foot on the ground in Louisiana, critics in the region have taken aim at the administration on several fronts: They fault him for waiting nine months before going to New Orleans, staying for only four hours and not going to any of the other states affected by the devastating 2005 storm, such as Mississippi and Alabama.
Another sign of the sad state that is the GOP displays itself again when you wonder why they haven't attacked Obama's blatant ignorance regarding issues affecting the Black community. While the radically, Far-Left president has made it his business to be hands-on with matters of concern to his white, liberal base (gay "rights", climate change, health reform, etc.), Obama has dissed his huge base of Black liberals time and time again.
Whether it's the fact that he still hasn't spoken on the death of Derrion Albert, done nothing to address the plight of guns and gun traffic in the inner-city or taking 9 months to visit New Orleans (and only staying for 4 hours!), Barry has provided the GOP with plenty of fodder to show once again how much liberal Democrats take the Black vote for granted. Mind you, who showed more love for Barry during his presidential campaign last year than Black liberals? Yet they've received nothing in return. It says a lot about the current leadership of the GOP that they haven't exploited this issue.

Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh was dropped from a group bidding to buy the St. Louis Rams.
ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the story on Wednesday.
Limbaugh was to be a limited partner in a group headed by St. Louis Blues chairman Dave Checketts. Checketts said in a statement Wednesday that Limbaugh's participation had become a complication in the group's efforts and the bid will move forward without him.
Checketts told the Associated Press he will have no further comment on the bid process.
Three-quarters of the league's 32 owners would have had to approve any sale to Limbaugh and his group. Earlier this week, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay predicted that Limbaugh's potential bid would be met by significant opposition. Several players have also voiced their displeasure with Limbaugh's potential ownership position, and NFL Players Association head DeMaurice Smith, who is black, urged players to speak out against Limbaugh's bid.
A Limbaugh spokesman told ESPN that Limbaugh would have no comment on Wednesday. Earlier, on his syndicated radio show, Limbaugh was defiant, holding on to hope that he still could be part of the ownership group that buys the Rams.
"This is not about the NFL, it's not about the St. Louis Rams, it's not about me," Limbaugh said. "This is about the ongoing effort by the left in this country, wherever you find them, in the media, the Democrat Party, or wherever, to destroy conservatism, to prevent the mainstreaming of anyone who is prominent as a conservative.
"Therefore, this is about the future of the United States of America and what kind of country we're going to have."
A victory for all the crazies on the Left, including Al Sharpton who had the nerve to go on record condemning Limbaugh's rhetoric. Sharpton, of course, is the same man responsible for the Tawana Brawley Hoax as well as the riot at Freddie's Fashion Mart that led to the deaths of 8 people. But what does that matter when you're a hypocritical liberal?
It's funny how scared of this guy liberals and the Obama administration have become.
Crimes shouldn't be based on what we think people are feeling and there is no such thing as "sexual orientation", the proof is rock solid:
Last week, House Republican Leader John Boehner objected to House passage of a bill that would expand hate crime laws and make it a federal crime to assault people on the basis of their sexual orientation. "All violent crimes should be prosecuted vigorously, no matter what the circumstance," he said.
"The Democrats' 'thought crimes' legislation, however, places a higher value on some lives than others. Republicans believe that all lives are created equal, and should be defended with equal vigilance."
Based on that statement, CBSNews.com contacted Boehner's office to find out if the minority leader opposes all hate crimes legislation.
The law as it now stands offers protections based on race, color, religion and national origin. In an email, Boehner spokesman Kevin Smith said Boehner "supports existing federal protections (based on race, religion, gender, etc) based on immutable characteristics."
So what, we just elected our first half-Black President, but we can't have the first non-Black Miss Hampton? Hypocrites.

So she says and I believe her:
For years, even decades, she was the feminist emblem of ambition, a political figure whose smarts, work ethic and connections (largely through her husband, political rock star Bill Clinton) marked her for historic firsts.
And she has certainly piled them on -- the first former first lady to become a U.S. senator, the first female candidate with a serious shot at the presidency.
But now, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton insists that she is not planning to run for president again. Ever.
Asked about a future bid during an interview on NBC's "Today" program, Clinton laughed. ''No,'' she said. ''No, I mean, this is a great job. It is a 24/7 job, and I'm looking forward to retirement at some point.''
It is tempting for some to cling to hope, and their Hillary for President buttons. But most commentators see in the statement a glimmer of inner peace, as if Barack Obama's former rival for the presidency has actually found contentment in her role as the chief diplomat in his administration.
No, to me Hillary's just being realistic. No matter how much Barry continues to be an utter FAIL, no way Hillary tries to run against an incumbent President in 2012 and she'll be approaching her 70's by the time 2016 rolls around. Hillary's definitely still bitter about losing to Obama last year, not only because it was an inexperienced, out-of-nowhere, black guy who beat her, but because she knew it'd be her first and last shot at the Presidency. She's a lot of things, but stupid ain't one of them.
So Harvey Milk, a man of little significance besides being a politician who happened to be gay, gets his own "day". Schwarzeneggger should be ashamed of himself for letting the Left bully him this way. Any wonder his poll numbers suck? But what does he care? When he's done playing governor, he can go make "Terminator 5" or something, meanwhile California will be left with his stench.
On October 12th, 2009, Governor Schwarzenegger signed into law two historic LGBT rights bills sponsored by Equality California (EQCA) and introduced by Senator Mark Leno (D-San Francisco). The laws were SB 572 – Harvey Milk Day and SB 54 (Marriage Recognition and Family Protection Act.
Governor Schwarzenegger originally vetoed Harvey Milk day when it came to his desk the first time around and gave the reason that not many people outside of San Francisco knew about Harvey Milk. Since the veto, a movie about Harvey Milk was released and won two Oscars: one for Best Actor and another for Best Screenplay. Harvey Milk was also posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom award by President Obama last August. It looks like these two major events, in addition to the thousands of phone calls and emails voters gave in support of the bill, have given Governor Schwarzenegger a change of heart. This will be the first time in the nation's history that a state will officially recognize and celebrate the contributions of an openly LGBT person with an annual "day of special significance."
With support from a lone Republican, a key Senate committee Tuesday approved a middle-of-the-road health care plan that moves President Barack Obama's goal of wider and affordable coverage a giant step closer to becoming law.
Maine Republican Olympia Snowe said she was laying aside misgivings for now and voting to advance the bill, a sweeping $829-billon, 10-year health care remake that would help most Americans get coverage without creating a new government insurance plan. "When history calls, history calls," said Snowe.
Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., called his bill "a commonsense, balanced solution." A distance runner, Baucus has endured months of marathon meetings to get this far. It's not the finish line.
Health care legislation is expected to be on the Senate floor the week after next, said a spokesman for Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. But it won't be the Baucus bill. Reid will combine the Finance version with a more liberal proposal from the health committee — with unpredictable results.
Olympia Snowe has once again made it clear that she plays by her own rules. Snowe has no fear of the Far-Right, much less their attempts to bully her. BaucusCare has been roundly dissed by the Left, more reason for Snowe to join in, but then I doubt BaucusCare will have enough votes to make it to Barry's desk anyway. Such is the life of partisan politics.
Rush Limbaugh has every right to own an NFL team like anyone else. And the idea that some Black football players won't play for any team he owns is ludicrous as we all know that for professional athletes it's always about the money.

Obama and his minions just can't deal with criticism so better to give interviews to the kiss-asses at MSNBC, ABC, CNN, et al. With all the problems going on in the country, Obama's worried about FOX--what a whiny, little girl.
Where's the public outcry? This would certainly fall under the lines of being unpatriotic or "Un-American". Of course there will be none, but hey what the hell.
Speaking to a respected Hispanic leader in KCK, Dennis Moore reportedly called decorated and disabled Marine Veteran and Congressional Opponent “White Trash” in a recent (recorded) telephone conversation. The KCK leader, who has formally supported the incumbent congressman, is supporting Daniel Gilyeat’s candidacy for the Kansas 3rd District Congressional seat. Dennis Moore called the KCK man after hearing the Hispanic community leader’s support had changed. Dennis Moore said he had $7 million for the campaign and could not believe the naturalized citizen was supporting “White Trash” over Moore.
Daniel Gilyeat is running against Moore in Kansas and was serving his second term in Iraq when he lost his leg to an IED. “I lost my leg but found my voice,” Gilyeat said to a crowd Saturday at the Veteran’s memorial. Gilyeat did not comment about Moore’s description of him other than to smile and say he had heard of the comment from the man Moore was speaking to.
“Moore’s comment has serious implications,” Theresa Benefield, owner Sequoia Logistics LLC, said. “Dennis Moore is telling Hispanics they owe him their votes by bringing up the threat of $7 million. He is telling all 3rd District voters he will buy the election.” Benefield said she wondered where he was getting his money. “It is not in his FEC reports, but then again, Rangle, Franks, and now Moore have trouble reporting what is and is not theirs. That is a lot of money from someone who places his worth at just under $1 million. For a job that pays over $200,000, one might speculate on why a congressman would spend more on running in the 3rd District than he has brought into the district over the past two years, she said.
“Calling anyone white trash is unwarranted, but is unconscionable when directed toward any minority. Evidently, minorities and middle class white people have to keep in their place around representatives like Moore and Pelosi,” she said.

Democrats running for governor in New Jersey and Virginia face possible defeat in November, despite strong showings by President Barack Obama in those states last year, in elections that could render the first judgments on the Obama presidency.
New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine, a close Obama ally, is struggling to win re-election in the face of a strong challenge by Republican Christopher Christie.
The Obama administration has turned out in support of Corzine, a wealthy former Goldman Sachs executive.
At a rally in Atlantic City this week, Vice President Joe Biden said it was "critically important" that Corzine is re-elected.
The Corzine campaign adapted the popular Obama slogan, hanging a banner next to Biden reading: "Yes we can -- again.
In Virginia, the only other U.S. state with a gubernatorial contest this year, Democrat Creigh Deeds has been losing so much ground in the polls to Republican Bob McDonnell that he has blamed the Obama administration's $787 billion economic stimulus plan for his low popularity.
A Washington Post poll published on Friday gave McDonnell a commanding lead of 53 percent to 44 percent, with less than a month to go until election day.
"Frankly, a lot of what's going on in Washington has made it very tough," Deeds told Politico newspaper. "We had a very tough August because people were just uncomfortable with the spending."
The Virginia race, where incumbent Democratic Governor Tim Kaine cannot run because of term limits, is more likely to be decided on national issues such as the economy and healthcare, said Larry Sabato, director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia.
A recent survey showed many voters in Virginia, where Obama won by 6 percentage points, expect taxes to rise as a result of a U.S. healthcare overhaul being considered in Congress.
Biden campaigned for Deeds this week in Virginia and the Democratic National Committee allocated another $1 million for his campaign. Democrats were waiting to see if Obama would make another appearance on Deeds' behalf.
The race in heavily Democratic New Jersey reflects more the struggles of an unpopular incumbent than the national political mood, and will be decided on Corzine's handling of such issues as the state's high property taxes, analysts said.
Corzine has lagged in polls, sometimes by double digits, for months in a state that Obama won by 15 points and where the legislature is controlled by Democrats. The race has tightened up in recent weeks.
Corzine has tried to link Christie, a former U.S. Attorney with a successful record prosecuting corrupt public officials and suspected terrorists, to former President George W. Bush, whose market deregulation Corzine blames for the nation's financial crisis.
The Nobel Peace Prize is now a complete farce. The Nobel Committee made fools of themselves and Barack Obama knows it. The fact that Barry can still accept this award and live with himself once again displays his utter narcissism.
President Barack Obama has finally achieved bipartisan consensus: Many on both the left and the right agree that a Nobel Peace Prize after less than nine months in office is embarrassingly over the top.
Of course, most Democrats applaud the move while the Republican response has been muted – understandable given the Nobel Committee's tradition of using the award to transmit hard-left political messages.
Many mainstream media figures and hardcore progressives are none too pleased either, however. Some feel that it will simply aggravate the nation's partisan divide. Others point out that the war in Afghanistan marches on.
Of course, many Americans will no doubt celebrate the fact that only the third sitting U.S. president – after Theodore Roosevelt in 1906 and Woodrow Wilson in 1919 – will receive the coveted award.
That said, much of the ambivalence expressed Friday came from unlikely sources, including:
Filmmaker Michael Moore: He congratulated President Obama, but added, "You have to end our involvement in Afghanistan now. If you don't, you'll have no choice but to return the prize to Oslo."
Nicholas Kristof, New York Times columnist and author: "I’m nonplussed. I admire his efforts toward Middle East peace, but the prize still seems very premature. What has he done?"
Journalist Peter Beinart: Writing on The Daily Beast, Beinart remarked, "I like Barack Obama as much as the next liberal, but this is a farce. He’s done nothing to deserve the prize. Sure, he’s given some lovely speeches and launched some initiatives – on Iran, Israeli-Palestinian peace, climate change and nuclear disarmament – that might, if he’s really lucky and really good, make the world a more safe, more just, more peaceful world. But there’s absolutely no way to know if he’ll succeed, and by giving him the Nobel Prize as a kind of “atta boy,” the Nobel Committee is actually just highlighting the gap that conservatives have long highlighted: between Obamamania as global hype and Obama’s actual accomplishments."
Time Magazine's Nancy Gibbs: Gibbs suggests the prize is only going to make Obama's job harder. She writes: "The last thing Barack Obama needed at this moment in his presidency and our politics is a prize for a promise."
Bob Schieffer of CBS: The award, he worries, is "just going to widen the political divide in this country, not make it better."
Richard Kim on TheNation.com: The choice of Obama left him "a little bewildered," he says. Kim adds: "Obama got a nice vote of confidence from the Norwegians for his promises. But now, he has to actually earn the Nobel with his deeds. That will be hard to do if his administration continues to send such mixed signals on international cooperation and diplomacy."
Miread Corrigan-McGuire, 1976 Nobel Peace Prize Winner: She posts: "I am very disappointed to hear that the Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama. They say this is for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples, and yet he continues the policy of militarism and occupation of Afghanistan, instead of dialogue and negotiations with all parties to the conflict."
Obama Supporter Michael Russnow: Writing on Huffington Post, columnist Russnow states: "Whatever one might feel about Obama, he has not earned this singular award."
Spelman College History Professor William Jelani Cobb: Cobb writes on Politico's The Arena blog: "At this point, President Obama is like a kid who gets a Porsche for his 16th birthday. It's wonderful but where do you go from there?"
