Dan Rather is just full of shit. Heís talking about Obama being too soft on Rachelís Show....

Rather to me is the the epitome of being soft on everything.Never herd a peep out of
him when he was ridden out of CBS. Reminded everyone during the hrs before the election
that Romney had a very good chance of winning. Tonight he is going on and on about
Obamaís weak spine. How Republicans have won a major battle.
Iíll tell you this ...... Obama did this for a reason and I know its a good reason.
Something is up with Rice with this nomination and I am backing my Pres. because
I trust him.......certainly more than I trust Ratherís assertions.

1. Rather tried to expose Bush's lies. Obama won't prosecute Bush for lying us into war.

 

I know whom *I* trust more.

2. Unless she has a history of sex with farm animals, you have to put her through

Anything less rewards McCain's batshit crazy behavior and convinces every Republican that Obama has no guts. If he wouldn't stand up for Susan Rice, what will he really fight for?

13. I'm trying to see a higher purpose here

but I'm not seeing it.

It is clear that we are looking at 4 years of intransigence and outrageous behavior from the GOP and Obama isn't willing to take on a public fight that would change that dynamic.

McCain and Graham needed to be spanked badly on this one. Obama has made it clear there is nothing to his mandate and there will be no consequences for anything.

The fault I find is that the Obama team had too many leaks and because they have let this go on for weeks without nominating her or someone else.

27. So, a reactionary President is what we need? Doesn't make decisions based upon information &

analysis, but just if the Republicans bitch about someone/something that's who/what he's supposed to use/do and if they praise someone/something that's who he's supposed to avoid. No need to examine anything on its own merits? Just do the opposite of whatever Republicans say.

What if the Republicans were to figure your strategy out?

33. We need a President that will show some backbone

If Obama wasn't prepared to nominate her, he should not have allowed her to stand as the default nominee for a month.

Our biggest problem in Washington is not the quality of analysis by the President. Our biggest problem is the misbehavior by Republicans. The way Obama handled this, he made our worst problem even worse.

subsequently not backed by his news organization.

5. I agree.

I remember the crap he was spouting just before the election, too. Which is my I think he's full of shit, too. I was on the verge of hitting the mute button tonight. What a steaming pantload.

As for something being up that we don't know about at the moment, that's my hunch, too. No idea what that is. I also don't think Kerry will be nominated, either.

What a bunch of nonsense. I'm glad that I'm not watching TV tonight.

...asking Rather on.
There is probably something about the Rice story we don't know.
and
Rather was on with Rachel and hinted at a Romney win on election day.

19. Rachel is a very cleverly lady and she knows that Dan Rather tells the truth. I think

 

Rachel should continue having Dan on her show. Rather had a major to-do with G HW Bush and was seriously fucked over by that ass hole. I seriously think that Rather is an alright guy.

20. Rather has become a bitter old man.

For some reason he loathes Obama. I have never heard him say one positive thing about the president. I actually felt embarrassed for him in his appearance on Rachel's show a few days before the election. It was as if he was a Romney surrogate and in the end everything he predicted was totally off the mark. It was pathetic and he wasn't much better in his interview this evening. There was a time when I loved the guy, but not anymore. Why Rachel continues to worship him beats me.

This is almost unbelievable coming from a guy who cowered when the heat
was turned up on him by the right wing. He is the absolute best model for being
a hypocrite!

Didn't he say he had a great gut feeling that Romney was going to win on election night?

I've lost a lot of respect for him.

Oh well.

24. Yes.

It baffled me. It was on Morning Joe. Everyone was saying the polls were breaking for Obama. They had John Heilemann on, who had said he was in contact with Chicago and they were very confident about their numbers ... even Chuck Todd admitted it felt like Obama had the momentum heading into the day and then they pan to Rather, who talks about how he feels it in his gut that Romney will have a good day.

WHAT. THE. FUCK, DAN?

Well, he hemmed and hawed on that one - but ultimately conceded that in his gut he 'felt Romney would have a good night'.

Fuck that.

Or does he sound like he has gravel in his mouth when he talks now?
I couldn't stand to hear him talk let alone listen to the crap he was saying.

Maybe I'm naive but I really feel like Rice wanted out.

29. Yes, Dan, it is OBAMA'S fault the republicans piled on Susan Rice

THIS is how the beltway media works.

THIS IS A REPUBLICAN MEME!

They went to soft headed inside DC media people like Andre Mitchell and implanted it, and being the self ingratiating twits they have lapped it up. It is inside baseballish, in their minds makes them look all knowing.

But, it is one of the half dozen or so go to republican moves - blame the Ds for doing what they are doing.

Condi Rice could not hold Susan's Rice's jock, but somehow the media got in line with saying how great Condi was while innocently standing back and letting moron Rs pile on Susan Rice, then for good measure, blaming the President for it.
