Rachel Maddow "Why We Did It" documentary premiering Thurs. March 6th on MSNBC

"MSNBC host Rachel Maddow charged Monday that the George W. Bush administration's Middle East policy has steered America's current security policy and response to global crises — including the one in Ukraine.

Talking about her new documentary, "Why We Did It," involving circumstances leading to the Iraq War, Maddow told MSNBC colleague Andrea Mitchell that the Bush administration is largely responsible for the nation's current course overseas.

“The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on," she told Mitchell. "And the American people are against those wars."

“Those are the determinative constraints for our thinking about everything,” she continued, “from Crimea, to Syria, to what the overall size of the U.S. military is.”

I'll miss it

That's the time I perform my self induced enema.

Ron Paul Was Right

She Uses the Forum of Politics to Hide the Shadow Government

Rachel Maddow is a trained political scientist. What is political science? It is the art of applied psychology used to persuade a target audience to think or act a certain way to benefit a hidden agenda of a political nature.

People that work in the private sector as marketeers use psychology to motivate the consumer to purchase their company's product or service verses the competition. Political science academia is the marketing department of a government.

She is not a journalist. She will never specifically talk about criminal fraud committed by global bankers or campaign bribery paid by multinational corporations or the influences of foreign States on Washington (i.e., the triumvirate of the shadow government), unless it is spun around a political theme. She is a shill for the ideology that pays her to attack the competition. She could care less about individual freedom, liberty or free markets. She spews propaganda to an audience who look to government for answers dealing with deficiencies in our society that are usually caused by the elected and bureaucratic miscreants of the State itself.

People who follow political scientists posing as "journalists" are weak-minded, unable to breach the conscience of independent reason and thought. They must be told how to live their lives. Sadly they represent the majority of Americans who live, work or are unemployed in our country today.

You give her too much credit.

You give her too much credit. She's a useful idiot at best.

The Microsoft National Broadcasting Corporation

That's what MSNBC stands for. I love pointing this out to liberals and then asking, "does it sound like journalism is their primary purpose?" Apparently, if you paint your mask like a rainbow, no one will notice the mask. Yay, rainbow!

This guy is the worst

remember when he was on star trek?



Does my fellow Gay discuss

Does my fellow Gay discuss the role of the neocons at all? Does she call out Zionist Israel firsters? Till you discuss Zionism, Israel, and Neocons in relation to all of the non-sense surrounding our foreign policy, you aren't really talking about much.

Who is "we" ????

No "we" didn't do it, the fvcking POS GOV'T did it.

Thank you



I love calling her that

I'd rather call her a

I'd rather call her a D.i.c.k.

Question - are there any famous libertarian gay people? Famous being the key word.

Glenn Greenwald did agree

Glenn Greenwald did agree with plenty of what Ron Paul said and I'd consider him fairly gay and famous.

Then statistically there should be quite a few more. There's still plenty of people hiding in the closet.




What a shill.

This is why I think Obama is their guy to pull back the curtain with. They will stop at nothing to protect him.

Bush's fault

Even halfway into Obomba's second term, to some truth deniers, it's still Bush's fault.

Why hasn't Obummer changed direction? Has he no foreign policy or vision of his own?
Why must the puppet follow George Bush's path?

Why hasn't Obumma fulfilled his campaign vow and ended the wars and brought the troops home?

Silly Rachel, forever blaming Bush for Obummer's failures.

Both are puppets for the banking oligarchs

Just a different face for the same tyrannical policies.


Blame "the Other Guys" (lol, right?) AND keep smooching the hiney of the current reigning wing of the oligarchy, all in one shot.

When they create these personas for TV - after a certain number of years the persona naturally starts parodying itself.

When the fakery in everything is so blatant - even the plastic in her hair shining under the blue lights adds to the the overall offensiveness of the entire ... thing.

I think that you are holding back and playing nice.

tell us how you really feel!
