TONIGHT - Olbermann To Accuse Bush Of Terrorism/Scare Tactics
Olbermann to Accuse Bush of 'Terrorism' Scare Tactics in Monday 'Special Comment'
Posted by Brad Wilmouth on October 23, 2006 - 10:56.

Near the beginning of Friday's show, Olbermann showed a clip of an RNC ad featuring Osama bin Laden, and then mentioned the ad again in an interview with WashingtonPost.com's Chris Cillizza. After the interview, Olbermann went on to plug his Monday "Special Comment," a complete transcript of the plug appearing below:

Keith Olbermann: "And about the Republican scare commercial. Does it not meet the dictionary definition of terrorism? A 'Special Comment,' Scare Tactics: How the Republicans are willing to do the terrorists' work for them by trying to terrify Americans. Monday here on Countdown, 8 and Midnight Eastern, 5 and 9 p.m. Pacific."

2. I have IMMENSE respect for this man.
Personally -- as a veteran -- I would sign up as part of his security detail if he ever wanted one. I think he needs one because he's speaking the truth, and we know that Bush the Lesser does not like that.

Recommended.

Because Bin-Laden Says So
http://www.opednews.com/articles/opedne_ron_full_060906...


today:

Arrogance and Stupidity in Iraq

How perfectly the Iraqi resistance group who calls itself al-Qaeda (in solidarity with the organization Bush has yet to apprehend) times their violence and their violent appeals to elevate Bush and his republican party at just the right moment. They rarely call Bush out by name, preferring to direct their comments to Americans and American soldiers. Bush pays them homage in his manifestos, as well, reading directly from the statements of the thugs. He'll tell crowds of Americans out on the campaign trail for his republicans, that, "because bin-Laden says so," because the 'terrorists' say they want us to leave Iraq, that means we should stay there for "as long as he's president."

Bush wants us to buy into his feeble-minded reasoning that anything bin-Laden says he wants, no matter how ridiculously inaccessible to him, like Iraq, should be supported to the tune of $10b a month, and at the cost of an average of 2-3 of our soldiers' lives daily beyond the 2800 Bush and his republicans have already sacrificed.

more . . .

17. I Reconnected Cable TV Last Week
just so I could watch his "special comments".
I disconnected after the 04 "election".

I also want to watch election returns in 2 weeks time
and then CSPAN as a Dem House begins investigative hearings.


It's going to be "must see" TV!

20. this is cracking me up
isn't it odd, one of his older commentaries he went off on Bush for saying that comparing him and his admin. to the terrorists was "unacceptable". Sounds like Keith is literally, purposely challenging that. I love it. :D
