This is from 13.th of january 2010 Rush Limbaugh and Pat Robertson can't help but put theire agenda onto this crisis, Rush politicizes it. Pat blames the people of Haiti. Even if you agree with these people on politics if you have a heart you should not agree with them on this.
In this Special Comment, Keith takes on the responsibility of calling the current version of HR 3590 (aka obamacare) what it really is: a Christmas present to the greedy, narcissistic health insurers from all of us.

donatelink: bit.ly Countdown's keith Olbermann outlines his intention to show his support for American health reform by donating to the national associations of free Clinics to offer a free capitol cities of the states of the six senators standing in the way of health reform in the senate.
On the night after Rep. Joe Wilson shouted "You Lie" at President Obama during an address to Congress, Keith Olbermann devotes a "Special Comment" to the Congressman, and mocked his apology. "You embarrassed your district, you embarrassed your nation... and you were wrong!" Olbermann said "Wrong-Way Wilson" "made himself look like an uninformed eight-year-old screaming at an adult." He also comments on how "stupid" certain Republican talking heads have made the party look. "The tiem has come to rise up and take this country back, to again make it safe for people who actually completed the seventh grade."
"Birthers... Laughable from the moment they open their mouths..." The remainder of a "Special Comment" devoted to other crazy conservatives like Glenn Beck, and their contribution to health care outrage, because "it is hardly all Sarah Palin," Keith Olbermann says.
A "Special Comment" on Sarah Palin's "death panel" criticism of President Obama's health care proposal. "There is no death panel... but there is downright evil, and Ms. Palin, you just served its cause..." On her efforts to clarify her comments, Keith says, "Too little, too late, too obvious... You should be ashamed of yourself." He closes by predicting she will become "the de facto chairman of a detah panel... your higher calling, Ms. Palin... God forgive you, Ms. Palin..." Part 1 of a logn "Special Comment" on conservatives and their contribution to health care outrage
Keith Olbermann calls out Sen. John Thune, Sen. John mccain, Minority Leader Mitch mcconnell and other Republicans - whom he argues "owns" the insurance industry - as well as a few Democrats, too - specifically the "Blue Dogs" - in a "Special Comment".
Former Vice President Dick Cheney defended torture in his speech, also not admitting to the 7000 deaths he and Bush arguably caused. Keith Olbermann voices his opinion, absolutely slamming him, in a rare "Special Comment".
Finally tonight, as promised, a Special Comment on the latest atrocity from the banks. The vast, engorged, gluttonous multi-national corporations. Whose sneezes can be fatal to our jobs. Whose mistakes can turn us into the homeless. Whose accounting errors can be so panoramic that they can make our economy tremble and force us to hand them billions after billions in a blackmail scheme that has come to be known as bailout. Five weeks ago Vikram Pandit, the chief executive officer of Citigroup, went back to Congress, tail seemingly between his legs, and, with entreaty dripping from his voice, announced I get the new reality and Ill make sure Citi gets it as well.what Mr. Pandit got was a new $10 million executive suite for himself and his key associates...said he would show his leadership by accepting compensation of $1 a year. In fact, he then accepted a total compensation package for 2008 of $38 million. Enough! Mr. Pandit, youre probably just a good actor and a damned liar and a con man...God knows you guys have pulled off every other accounting trick every dreamt up by immoral man. You, Sir, and the other corporate pirates like you — those who are saved from your obsessive spending and greed and self-aggrandizement by the taxpayer — who then pretend to atone — who then publicly promise good behavior — and who then revert immediately to the rapaciousness that is your only skill. You, sir, all of you, need to be fired. Enough! The far right in this country, without the ...
Former Vice President Dick Cheney warned that there is a high probability that terrorists will attempt a catastrophic nuclear or biological attack in coming years, and said he fears the Obama administrations policies will make it more likely the attempt will succeed. When we get people who are more concerned about reading the rights to an Al Qaeda terrorist than they are with protecting the United States against people who are absolutely committed to do anything they can to kill Americans, then I worry, Cheney said. Protecting the countrys security is a tough, mean, dirty, nasty business, he said. These are evil people. And were not going to win this fight by turning the other cheek. The dire portrait Cheney painted of the countrys security situation was made even grimmer by his comments agreeing with analysts who believe this recession may be a once-in-a-century disaster. Its unlike anything Ive ever seen, Cheney said. The combination of the financial crisis that started last year, coupled now with, obviously, a major recession, I think were a long way from having solved these problems. The interview, less than two weeks after the Bush administration ceded power to Obama, found the man who is arguably the most controversial — and almost surely the most influential — vice president in US history in a self-vindicating mood. He expressed confidence that files will some day be publicly accessible offering specific evidence that waterboarding and other policies he promoted ...
Keith Olbermann delivers a special comment on Countdown about how President Obama must prosecute war crimes perpetrated by the Bush Administration and vice president Dick Cheney. Weeks later, a call to arms has been picked up by Senator Pat Leahy: We have just emerged from a time when White House officials often acted as if they were above the law. That was wrong and must be fully exposed so it never happens again. The Huffington Post community and the netroots played a vital role pursuing, demanding, and exposing the Bush-Cheney administration's numerous abuses. But there's still more we don't know, and more we must uncover, about the misdeeds of the past eight years. That is why I proposed the idea of a truth and reconciliation commission to investigate abuses during the Bush-Cheney administration. These abuses may include the use of torture, warrantless wiretapping, extraordinary rendition, and executive override of laws. I have set up a petition at bushtruthcommission.com, and I hope you will sign it to urge Congress to consider establishing a truth and reconciliation commission to investigate the Bush-Cheney administration's abuses. We already have over 7000 signatures, but we need to hit 10000 signatures -- or more -- by next week, to build momentum behind this idea. During the past several years, this country has been divided as deeply as it has been at any time in our history since the Civil War. It has made our government less productive and our society less ...

Excuse Me, But Didn't mccain and Palin Just Say That the Victims of 9/11 Weren't 'Real Americans'? Some questions about a colleague's work came up yesterday during a business call. We couldn't ask her about them, though. Why? Because she was somewhere between the 95th and 99th tower of the World Trade Center's North Tower on the morning of September 11, 2001. Sarah Palin says that the 'real America' is in small towns and formerly red states. She says the people in the cities and in the North aren't 'pro-American.' Yet most of the people who lost their lives at the World Trade Center lived in the cities and suburbs. Not real Americans? The firefighters who sacrificed their lives by going back into a burning building to save lives? Not real Americans? The friends and colleagues who died in pitch black crowded stairwells in some Boschean vision of hell? Or broke a window and jumped from the 101st floor rather than continue to feel their skin grow hotter and hotter? Not real Americans? The wives and husbands who continue to grieve, the parents who lost sons and daughters, the children whose healing is yet to come? They're saying that Northern Virginia isn't the real America, either. Joe mccain says it's "communist." Another mccain spokesperson says it's not even the real South. Nothern Virginia. You know - where the Pentagon is www.huffingtonpost.com
How Anti-Intellectual Is Palin? Here's one way to look at the question: how has Palin brought up her own kids? Her eldest son is a high-school drop-out. Her eldest daughter has had, so far as one can tell from press reports, very uneven attendance in high school, and no plans for college. Her other daughters seem to spend a lot of time traveling the country with their mom at tax-payers' expense. I've seen them at several rallies with the Palins this fall. Are they not in school? The least one can say is that none of her children seems to have been brought up thinking that college is something to aspire to. And her new son-in-law just dropped out of high school as well. Sarah Palin's own record of several colleges over several years - ending with a degree in sports journalism - tells you a lot. So does her interest in policing the Wasilla library as mayor and using the town's money for a sports stadium. She cut funding for the town museum and opposed building a new library. So does her amazing ignorance about the constitution. She is, in my judgment, the final rebuke to what Buckley tried to do for conservatism. She is burying it as an intellectual tradition and returning it to the pre-Buckley era. With the eager encouragement of a now Buckley-free National Review. Yes, the karma is overpowering. This is a tragedy worthy of Shakespeare. andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com The correct answer can be found in the Constitution of the United States. Article One, Section Three— "The ...
Scranton, Pennsylvania. During the warm-up act by a Red Meat Congressional Candidate aptly named Chris Hackett, Hackett mentions Obama and a Palin audience member shouts "Kill Him." And Gov. Palin, as usual, does nothing about it says nothing to these thugs and psychos. She may not have heard this one. It is impossible to believe that by now she has not heard about the other ones. Her silence is deafening. Just as, Sen. mccain, you have done nothing when violence has been asserted. Correction. You have done one thing. Asked why in real time you do not repudiate this hatefulness you act as if you are the victim. Speaking today to our NBC Station in Washington. mccain: "Sure and I repudiated it as I have on several occasions. Unfortunately, Congressman John Lewis is an American hero who I admire who made the worst, most unacceptable statement a couple days ago that I have ever heard. He accused me and Sarah Palin of being involved in segregation, George Wallace and even made reference to a church bombing where children were killed. Senator Obama has not repudiated that statement. Senator Obama should do so immediately. Its the most outrageous thing that I have heard since in politics...it is disgraceful." Disgraceful? Obviously, Senator, you haven't heard your own speeches, and Gov. Palin's, and what people shout during them. And you haven't heard your state GOP Chair in Virginia, Jeffrey Frederick, giving talking points to 30 of your field-operatives heading out to canvass ...
In the self-pronounced area of expertise of the Governor of Alaska—energy—the real experts of both parties are at a loss to figure out any way, even'drill, baby, drill', that might lower gas prices before 2018. We are at war in two countries and a lame duck President with no reason to check his own imbalance still has dreams of one more. And a 90-year-old woman, trapped in the middle of a financial meltdown, shoots herself and she's still in better shape than the economy. Yet, the Governor of Alaska wants to talk about somebody Barack Obama doesn't know very well, and what this somebody Barack Obama doesn't know very well, did, during the year Obama was eight and the Governor of Alaska was in pre-Kindergarten. And she wants to talk about Reverend Jeremiah Wright. And she doesn't object to being introduced with a reference to Barack Obama's middle name. Sarah Palin of Wasilla, Alaska...said Saturday at Carson, California: "Our opponent is someone who sees America as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who targeted their own country....and it's your supporters and the undecided voters who are the dopes who are now going to believe the same mickey-mouse crap that Sen. Clinton couldn't get to stick, and Sean Hannity couldn't get to stick. Alaskan Independence Party, and why you recorded a speech for its convention last March, and why your husband remained a registered member of it until 2002, even though it was founded by a man named Joe Vogler who wanted Alaska to ...
The surge is not working... If it was, then our troops could come home now. But John Mccain still insists that the surge is working, yet he is unable to ascertain when we can draw down to below pre-surge levels. Halfway through June, and already, 14 soldiers have been killed this month. However, Mccain states that it's "not too important" when we can withdraw our forces. -------------------------------------------- As an internist at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital, Dr. Stephanie Santos is used to finding odd things in people's stomachs. So last spring when a young man, identifying himself as an Iraq-bound soldier, said he had accidentally swallowed a pen at the bus station, she believed him. That is, until she found a second pen. It read 1-800-GREYHOUND. Last summer, according to published reports, a 20-year-old Bronx soldier paid a hit man $500 to shoot him in the knee on the day he was scheduled to return to Iraq. The year before that, a 24-year-old specialist from Washington state escaped a second tour of duty, according to his sister, by strapping on a backpack full of tools and leaping off the roof of his house, injuring his spine. Such cases of self-harm are a "rising trend" that military doctors are watching closely, says Col. Kathy Platoni, an Army Reserve psychologist who has worked with veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. "There are some soldiers who will do almost anything not to go back," she says. Col. Elspeth Ritchie, the Army's top psychologist, agrees that ...
George Bush's "sacrifice" was to give up golf during the Iraq war.
Keith Olbermann delivers a special comment about Hillary Clinton and her recent reference to Robert Kennedy's assassination and the inference to why she is continuing her campaign. "My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don't understand it." --------------------------------------- She's Sorry Again I'm not saying she literally hopes he dies soon. (Plus, she's apologized, so case closed, right?) But Hillary didn't mean what she said this time just like she wasn't exactly shouting out to hardworking white people, and Bill didn't quite say Jesse equals Barack, and her surrogates never meant to push the whole image of him as a druggie in the 'hood, and she never meant to reanimate the whole highly racial Jeremiah Wright hoo-ha by saying—gosh darn the timing, just as things were dying down—that he woulda never been her pick for pastor. But either Hillary Clinton is one smart, savvy, and occasionally even on-message politician—in which case she is well aware of what it means to reference the possible assassination of a black leader in this country—or she isn't and doesn't. It can't be both. www.slate.com No such thing as an accident I think we know exactly what Hillary meant: "Nice nominee you got there... sure would be a shame if anything happened to him." Awfully big-hearted of her to be willing to stick around through ...

Countdown with Keith Olbermann Special Comment: Clintons and Race -------------------------------------------- The issue of race makes a lot of folks uncomfortable -- and that's especially true right now when the nation is closer than ever to electing the first black President of the United States. As my new newspaper column this week shows, many serious people who dominate our political debate have reacted to this historic election and their own queasiness about race by exposing their prejudices. On one side, you have the ostriches -- the political "thinkers" like Reihan Salam and Michael Lind who look at the Race Chasm and pretend it doesn't exist. These people look at a racially polarized election map, and explain it away with either flippant fact-free stories about Hillary Clinton's "waitress-mom sensibility," or wild theories about Northern European migration trends from a century ago. They expect us to forget that most often the simplest explanation is the most obvious -- especially when it comes to a black-white racial divide that has been a defining characteristic of American culture since our country's inception. On the other side you have the minstrel show producers -- the media and politicians who are more than thrilled to exploit race and treat African-Americans as less than human. My column offers up all sorts of specific examples of this, but I think Keith Woods of the Poynter Institute summed it up best. Appearing on PBS this week, he said: "You see a full ...
This is my first video I have posted on Youtube. I feel this is what needs to be addressed, for the good of the nation, and I hope others are willing to listen to the sincerity behind Keith Olbermann's message.
