You go, girl!

I'm lovin' that Rachel.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Did he think if he said "rule of law" enough times...

...that he could slip this "prolonged detention" thing in and no one would notice?

Good on Maddow for not cutting him one bit of slack here.

Thanks Sentinel for posting this.

That's the con right there , It's a known fact from the mkultra

playbook that if you divert the reality by using a positive spin you can sell anything on anyone . At least anyone who is willing to accept the bullshit. We should by now all know that Obama is nothing more than a puppet and hes the ultimate con man being used by the maniacs that run the world.

the one who bails out his @ss night in and night out.


MUST SEE ... absoluuuutely hysterical!!!

Suddenly I've notice a lot

Suddenly I've notice a lot of grumbling over on the left blogs about Obama's policies. Did they not see this coming?? Better late than never. So, are we going to see them start fighting against war again? Are they going to stop the hoping and see the reality of what is happening in and to our country by the NWO?

The left wakes up (?)

Also watch the clip from Jon Stewart yesterday "American Idealogue"




In that video, Bill Kristol admits he used to "root for Darth Vader" when he would watch Star Wars!!

What a surprise and what a douche bag.

Huh, I have to say I'm surprised

When I hear a person being so childish so often, in her case about things Republicans do (even when I don't agree with what Republicans are doing I cannot ever see myself acting that childishly), I just assume that person doesn't do much thinking and is just in it for some ego rush. Well, maybe I was jumping to conclusions.

Defend Liberty!

She must be doing something right....

judging by the articles that dailykos is writing against her views of Obama.

...I see this as good news actually. The more he opens his eloquent mouth, the more everyone will clearly see their is little to no differance between the core agenda of tyranny both "parties" have against us. The mask is coming off, as it must, as they aproach their final move to enslave us all under absolute despotism.

Ron Paul wasn't on my ballot so I voted Obama.


He changed from change and I got short-changed in the process.

Not that I expected too much, but I had more faith in him than that shallow little hot-head McCain.

You're right that the policies and hypocrisy are more glaring when said with such panache. McCain would have performed similar to Bush which would just seem "normal"


Dr. Paul said vote for 3rd party: you're part of the problem.


...an asshole.

Spade a Spade

The tea-bagging jokes, irked me a bit, but it seems when it comes to civil liberties Maddow's calls a spade a spade.


MUCH needed criticism

More and more..

I find myself pleasantly surprised by her reporting. She has been nothing but fair with Ron Paul (most left wing media has been), she had Rand on for his candidacy announcement and now this, and all within the last several weeks. Slowly but surely the left wing media will come to realize that the differences in this administration and the last are minor.

I thought so too

I do believe the left is beginning to wake up. Perhaps it's all those taxes hitting their wallets ... that they didn't expect!

Impeach him NOW!!!!!

Keep in mind what was reported in the NY Times article:


"Mr. Obama did not seem to be thinking about preventive detention for terrorism suspects now held at Guantánamo Bay, but rather for those captured in the future, in settings OTHER THAN A LEGITIMATE BATTLEFIELD like Afghanistan." (caps mine)

What exactly is he talking about?!!!

terrorist are

Libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, returning war veterans, constitutionalists and so on.
That's what they are talking about.

Nazi with a tan.


The must be pretty heavily armed and ready for capture. Amazing that they let everyone know what they've going to do BEFORE confiscating all the guns. Sets a new precedent for dangerous, totalitarian regimes.

I am just happy to see someone pointing out Obama's hypocrisy.

I don't care who it is. Ms. Maddow has done a good thing, in this instance.
(Actually, Obama is simply expressing the hypocrisy of many Americans right now, and it is very shameful).
