He's BLOVIATING ONCE AGAIN!!! Blasting the WH for not sending Federal agents to talk to Pastor Nutcase.....

Well guess what !!!!!!

FBI Agents Visit Fla. Pastor over Quran Burning

Updated 3:19 p.m. ET

FBI agents visited Thursday with a minister of a small Florida church that plans to burn the Quran on Sept. 11, as public safety became a paramount concern and President Barack Obama added his voice to the chorus of opposition.

<snip>

The FBI spent about a half hour talking with Jones, but church spokesman Wayne Sapp would not disclose what they discussed. Agents leaving the church wouldn't talk to an Associated Press reporter.

the FBI or CIA paying the nutjob a visit on his noon radio show.

65. Well.. I for one am grateful
that there is an Anti-Rush. If that's what it takes, to have some dittoheads in our party as well, then yay for that. Personally, listening to his radio show doesn't do much for me. But it's nice to see some equal airtime for something that ISN'T right-wing BS. Even if it's still BS.

If I got mad at Rachel, I'd be snarky and throw in pop culture references.

As it is ..... I AM MAD AT BIG ED!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

13. Ed can be depended on for an emotional reaction to any news item
I like him but he is prone to react viscerally to something as polarizing as the nutcase koran burning pastor.

He's trying to appeal to the dumbass fox news viewer by getting outraged over things, but he loses a lot of the more thoughtful audience by doing so.

16. They should have hired Thom Hartmann.
He's thoughtful, is smart as all get out and has a voice that is just right...unlike the braying of eddie.
I hope he is still on Sirius as I'm going to get it again.

Driving from 2AM till noon or so, out in the woods, I cant get many stations...Sat radio is just the ticket.

Back on topic, ed is an ass and isn't too liberal

17. I couldn't BELIEVE when he said Obama was forced to talk about this (on advice from Rahm)
when he SHOULD'VE been talking about the economy. The TRUTH, Ed, is that Obama was asked one question about the Quran burning during an interview this morning which was largely about the ECONOMY! Ed used this as a reason to bash Rahm. Ed had his facts all wrong.

And then he kept saying that Ed Rendell called RWers "fruit looms" instead of "fruit loops." Ed is clueless.

Is the reason for all this strum und drang simply the fact that Ed dared to criticize Obama? I find it hard to believe that a radio host getting a fact wrong could whip you up into such a lather.

44. Yeah .... I dont get everyone's probl. with that....
.... the Feds/Gate/whomever talked to Rev. Nutcase and now Rev. Nutcase has called off the burning.

Rev. Nutcase is just a little teeny Mr. Imadinnajacket .... except without actual nuclear weapons ... but if his actions can put American lives in danger, he might as well have them, right?

I never bought into the notion during the primaries that the President (whomever he may be) is so special that he cant SPEAK with those who aim to do us harm .... and I'm not buying into that notion now.

61. Did you know Ed was a Republican who wanted to run for a GOP House seat in 1994?
Edited on Thu Sep-09-10 10:32 PM by ClarkUSA
Ed admitted that he was a Republican in the mid-90's because "I wanted to make a lot of money". Just think, he wanted to be part of the "Republican Revolution" with Tom DeLay and Joe Scarborough as a way to rake in the dough!

Schultz told the Los Angeles Times that he "lined up with the Republicans because they were anti-tax, and I wanted to make a lot of money...." Schultz pondered a run as a Republican for the U.S. House of Representatives against Democratic Rep. Earl Pomeroy in 1994, but decided against it after visiting with state Republican leaders.

Now he's "lined up" with the Democrats because he stills wants "to make a lot of money". Hey, it got him his present gig, right?

Ed is a media whore, plain and simple.

81. Wow, very interesting!
I never cared for his show before he got his gig at MSNBC and I still don't. It always struck me as opportunistic as opposed to speaking out on principle, with a few, very few exceptions and now I know why. It's all about the money and whatever it takes to get it.

63. He really should stop bloviating once a while and when
he's catching a breath he could catch up on the latest like you so astutely suggested, Clio~

82. He's a natural leader and a fighter. Some DUers don't trust 'other' leaders.
Go Big Ed!

84. Big Ed is GREAT for the Democratic Party.
His "Gun Toting, Red Meat Eating, Two Fisted Working Class Democrat" spiel is a wonderful counter to the Limousine Liberal/Latte Liberal image the Right has successfully imposed on Democrats over the last 20 years.

Most of our Media spokespeople preach to the choir.
Big Ed reaches an audience that normally wouldn't listen to Olberman, Hartmann, or Rachel.
As such, he has a niche that BELONGS exclusively to him. I believe he has been more successful at giving Middle Americans permission to vote for Democrats than the personalities that preach to the choir.

He is on our side, and I'm glad to have him.
It would be a big mistake to throw him out with the purity purges.
