Olbermann solidifies his standing with the Nutroots, calls for Bush impeachment

Posted by: ST on September 12, 2006 at 9:54 am

And complained about Bush ‘crimes against the 9-11’ victims last night on the ‘special comment’ segment of his program. I caught a few seconds of it while flipping through channels, and thought to myself “well, at long last, Olbie’s finally found himself an audience.”

Read a recap and see video of Olbie’s rant here.

Olbie’s ‘words of wisdom’ can be read here.

By the way, want to see how the Nutroots remembered 9-11 yesterday? James Joyner recaps. Hint: You won’t be surprised. Greg Tinti snagged a screencap of how the Daily Kos blog remembered 9-11 before they changed it.

Interested in a more uplifting message? Here’s a flashback to Jules Crittenden’s Psalm 9-11: I will fear no evil column. You’ll find it refreshing and inspiring, especially after reading and watching new Nutroots proxy Olbermann playing to his newfound fans on the far left.

    When is MSNBC going to pull Olbermann’s show? The wheel’s come off this guy every night. The show is straight up propaganda. He has never interviewed a guest that didn’t share his opinion. He is at the bottom of the ratings. He is so starved for attention he is trying to appeal to the Kos Kids.

    This schmuck has taken a risk. Since there is a ‘need’ for a far left answer to Rush, K.O. ‘rushed in’ out of nowhere to fill a void that does not exist on a cable network nobody watches.

    I never liked him at years ago at ESPN when his spew on sports made no sense. He’s a media boor screaming for attention, then and now. He must come cheap.

    Looks like he’s trying to outdo Michael Moore. Do the Dems have some sort of competition running for worst case of BDS? With first prize being a seat in the VIP box at the ’08 Dem convention?

    If so, it’ll be one hell of a horse race…

    These are the same people calling for “unity” and saying Bush squandered the moment of “unity”.

    But I remember the criticism starting before teh Afghan war. The media was saying we couldn’t win in the mountainous terrain and that it would get too cold and that the Russians lost after trying for a decade and the Catholic leaders put out a full page ad (why I left Catholicism along with another reason) asking Bush not to attack Afghanistan. On and on and on. Then during the 14 month long “RUSH” to war that the liberals kept arguing there was NOTHING that liberals would be happy with. Bush didn’t squander the unity. Liberals made disunity. They convinced enough people by telling lies often enough. The same reason that 30% of the population think that 9/11 was a conspiracy by this country.

    More and more people are believing nut job theories and arguements but that is pushing common sense independants and Democrats to vote for the alternative. Republicans just need to not squander the opportunity and push forward on the War on Terror, and domestic ideas. Leftists will just continue to make disunity like Keith does.

    The libs are off thier rocker. I have browsed some of thier websites, and they are all over the place with crazy accusations. There is plenty of them that are way off the deep end saying September 11th was an inside job.

    The bottom line, the libs lost 2 presidential elections, and are mad at George Bush and his administration. The best way to explain this is to pretend George Bush is a quarterback.

    If he loses the game, you say he is a loser. If he wins the game, you say he cheated and he is still a loser. If he wins, but his running back scored all the points, you say he only won because he had his daddy’s running back score all the points.

    Wake up America. Do you understand George Bush is playing for your school? Forget for a minute your guy didn’t get the starting job. Realize that Bush is playing hard for your team. Start rooting for George Bush and the rest of his team to win as this game is of the utmost importance.

  7. G Monster says:

    I meant wake up liberal America and most importantly, will the idiots at the MSM please wake up. There are plenty of Americans that are already awake, and are in disbelief as they see things like the NY Times revealing our secret spy programs.

    Many of us are in disbelief as we see hundreds of American journalists and talking heads doing thier best to discredit this administration. They continue to twist things, make up stories, and in alot of cases manufacture evidence.

    These same journalists continue to lose market share, ratings, and newspaper sales. They don’t seem to get it. They continue to stoop lower and lower, and become more irrelevant everyday.

  8. Baklava says:

    Olberman’s words, “The polite phrase for how so many of us were duped into supporting a war, on the false premise that it had ‘something to do’ with 9/11 is “lying by implication.”

    The impolite phrase is “impeachable offense.”

    …. is quite extraordinarily a lie in it’s assertion. Liberals have been told umpteen times that NOBODY has said Iraq was the cause of 9/11. They have gone out of their way to say that Iraq is a front on the Global War on terror but does NOT mean that Iraq or Saddam was responsible for 9/11. It’s as if liberals have a hearing and reading comprehension problem. Due to this problem they are calling for impeachment. It is due to their inability to hear that they are making/creating disunity. There are people who believe that Bush said we are in Iraq because of Saddam’s responsibility for 9/11 because of the lying Olberamann’s, but it isn’t a true assertion.

    Holy crap. I just got to the bottom of his rant where Olbermann says:

    Who has left this hole in the ground?

    We have not forgotten, Mr. President.

    You have.

    May this country forgive you.

    Let me just say Olbermann. Who has been divisive? You have Olbermann. And may this country not forgive you for tearing us apart like this. Those were not responsible words. It was irresponsible rhetoric all througout your piece.

    While you may stake your hopes in the enemy turning on themselves or negotiation and not war, that disagreement is not grounds for calling others liars or acting like we or Bush is only using war on the enemy. THere are 100’s of things that the administration is doing to try to address the terrorist problem. One of these things IS dialog. It is having lunches with CAIR against the recommendations of some highly scholared people on who CAIR is. Having lunches and breakfasts with clerics and Islamic leaders and what does this administration get for it from the left? Ignorance and averting their eyes and MORE accusations that they are just warmongerers. The press is responsible (that’s you Olbermann) for the attitude exhibited by a coworker here in the State of CA. She said, “ Bush has another 2 years in office, he’s good for at least another war“. I lay that attitude at your feet Olbermann because she is a listener of yours. You have systematically ignored the threat of terrorism as in a 9/10 attitude while conservatives want an even larger Global War on Terror. The choice between peace and security and addressing these mass murderers who want to kill millions of us and doing things your way is clear. Your way will not bring us peac and security. Your way brings disunity Keith. Your way is lying about this administration during a time of war.

    Well, even if they do cancel his show, I’m sure Al Jazeera would pick it up.

  11. Marshall Art says:

    Olberman: not worth my time. How does the phrase go? “Stupid is as stupid does.” I have to think he’s MSNBC’s answer to Jon Stewart w/o any laughs at all. That he is even on the air shows the lack of intelligence and credibility of MSNBC.

  12. G Monster says:

    Olbermann. He is a waste of film and the cameraman’s time. In addition to KO, it probably takes at least 3 people to produce that show. One to hold the camera, one to hold the microphone, and someone to agree with Keith. KO is a nutjob.
