Olbermann To Bush: "This War Is Not About You...Shut The Hell Up!"

Olbermann To Bush: "This War Is Not About You...Shut The Hell Up!"

Click to Read

Olbermann To Bush: "This War Is Not About You...Shut The Hell Up!" Last night, Keith Olbermann unleashed what may well have been his angriest, most blistering Special Comment yet, aimed squarely at his favorite target: President Bush. Olbermann was responding to Bush's claim that he had given up golf in honor of the Iraq war — and his assertion that a Democratic president withdrawing from Iraq would "eventually lead to another attack on the United States" — a statement Olbermann called "ludicrous, infuriating, holier-than-thou and most importantly bone-headedly wrong." Olbermann continued in that vein for a full 12 minutes (or 2,000 words), frequently raising his voice and spitting out his words in disgust.

I disagree Stephley. But we have already had this conversation so I'll just leave it at that, and agree to disagree.

Dr. Drew is TOTALLY hot! But you can't write off Sean Connery... I mean he's a sexy piece of man meat if I ever saw one!

Why aren't the emoticons working? WTF?

I think that's why he yelled - lives are in danger. Olbermann's been calm for five years and it hasn't helped. It's like watching a building burn and yelling to the fire squad to help and they have their backs to the fire and keep saying you're too excited, please calm down. Meanwhile, the building's a loss.

ok and obviously if someone is in danger and needs help that's different I can help them if they're screaming because they need help.

I get what you're saying Stephley, I just can't listen to people unless they're calm. I think if more of us could stay calm longer and really work on that skill we'd be in a much better position than we are today (we meanig society).

I think Olbermann's point was in part that the man he was addressing hasn't been listening anyway and his frustration is boiling over. It's not the kind of thing you can be calm about forever.

I don't mind people getting angry, but like racc pointed out when you're spouting hatred like a rabid dog you kind of lose your point amid all the chaos and people stop listening.

I thought I was the only one who had a huge crush on KEITH!!! I told my husband the other day. He was like, "WHAT, I don't get it." He might be old, but he's sexy, especially when he goes into his rants!

I was not a big Dharma and Greg watcher- but I am a Portal fan, and I know that cake is fantastic, even if it is a lie. Or not. I'll stop geeking out now.

cake is also a metaphor for another kind of early reward. remember Dharma and Greg? Bella, I could totally hear Keith going off on one of his tirades, but shouting naughty things instead!

I can appreciate the vehemence of his delivery, and for the most part agree with his statements (though in my own, far less frothy way), but I also agree that he could use some cake. Perhaps Bella can feed it to him? LOL Cake is, after all, the ultimate earthly reward. ;)

The cake to belligerent ratio is very interesting. I am a man who enjoys his cake, yet sometimes I find myself commenting out of anger on this site. Perhaps more cake is needed here! Attendant! Bring me some of you finest Black Forest Cake. Chop! Chop! :cake:

:ROTFL: Bella!!!! That is so funny! Your honesty is refreshing! Your taste is questionable, but the honesty is good! (kidding!)

Keith doesn't try to masque his opinions. I appreciate his emotions.

I'm sorry but Keef turns me on. He's old enough to be — well, not my dad, but my big brother — and yet, rrrowl!

I think Olbermann needs to eat more cake. I am having a peice of carrot cake right now, and let me tell you I look back at the things I was angry about this morning, and I'm like "WHO CARES? I've got cake!"
KrisSugar KrisSugar 9 years
thanks rac! that really is the first thing I wondered about. he's probably hitting golf balls all over that ranch anyway. :)

I think Olbermann did a perfect job of capturing how many people feel about this war and this president. I think it'd be very difficult for people who disagree to actually refute the facts Olbermann presented - not the passionate delivery, just the facts.

Kris - :rotfl: I admire your sense of humor. I am angry because it's sharper than my own, but I do admire it.

I saw this last night, and while his delivery needs some polish, I think what he was saying was pretty accurate. Please don't say that giving up golf is a sacrifice for the troops! That sounds so petty! Please dont say that if the democrats are elected that there will be another terrorist attack...Hammas, Hezbollah, Al Queda, and the Taliban have all GAINED strength under your leadership, Mr. Bush!!!

I think we're allowed to be angry. We have a right to be. I don't understand this "stop the Bush bashing" nonsense. When your president hs done you wrong, you speak out and make it known. Don't just sit back and let things spiral out of control. BUT with that said, excercise does help the anger from spiraling out of control!!! So I'm not opposed to it. Especially when we're getting hatred from other countries for being too fat.
