Looks like MSNBC, as a network, has decided to make its preference for Obama a promotional tagline. But just ignore it. Remember. They’re journalists. They say so (even though Matthews says its his job to make sure the Obama Presidency ‘works’).
… MSNBC has now seamlessly integrated its own promotional advertising with that of the Obama campaign.
now that the election is over:
Vodpod videos no longer available.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Yeah, well, you know what? I want to do everything I can to make this thing work, this new presidency work, and I think that —
JOE SCARBOROUGH: Is that your job? You just talked about being a journalist!
MATTHEWS: Yeah, it is my job. My job is to help this country.
An incredulous Scarborough kept pressing, astonished at such a complete 180 from Matthews’s repeated insistence during the Bush presidency that he had to hold the government accountable.
It boggles the mind.
I know Senator McCain has a lifetime of experience that he will bring to the White House. And Senator Obama has a speech he gave in 2002.
So Obama annouced back in July his intention to create a civilian national security force.
“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
No really sure what the means but it sure sounds a hell of a lot like the National Guard.
It also reminds me a bit (just a bit) of Kerry’s mandatory national service draft program.
I also can’t help but wonder if Barney Frank wants to cut the budget of this ‘security force’ by 25% as well.
Its just that I thought the following info was slightly interesting.
A quick check of the stats reveals the top three searches leading people to this site are:
Obama leads McCain in f**k searches nearly 4 to 1. America has a slight lead over McCain at 2 to 1. What does this mean? I have no idea.
(side note: I’m pretty sure its this post that is causing these search hits)
Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens was convicted of seven corruption charges Monday in a trial that threatened to end the 40-year career of Alaska’s political patriarch in disgrace
Stevens, 84, was convicted of all the felony charges he faced of lying about free home renovations and other gifts from a wealthy oil contractor.
Stevens should resign immediately. If he doesn’t, the Senate should boot him. It only takes a 2/3rds vote. Hopefully Senator Steven’s career is now on that ‘Bridge to Nowhere’.
The Republican party deserves to lose this Senate seat for allowing him to run for re-election in the first place.
