Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Put it another way... if I were German, I would care a lot more about Israeli domestic politics than American domestic politics.
I'm not saying that supporting Israel is unamerican. What kind of a straw man is that? I think that an American's priority should be America and let Israel be the priority of Israelis.
Ed Schultz was using the death of Quaddafi for an Obama victory push, touting his foreign policy "victories" as a reason for supporting him. More and more, TV and radio hosts are there to promote the predetermined DNC/RNC policies in their coverage, rather than question the sanity of them. Barely no one can look at news independently anymore. Most of the shows on TV and radio are just the government party line in one form or another. I felt like calling him and saying "Mega-dittos Rush!" because Rush never saw a war he didn't love.What a sell out. It pains me to see this, Ed Schultz has decided to use his show to be the bedrock of lets re-elect Obama after he cause the worst off year congressional election defeat in recent memory. Ed used to be a good soldier. Like Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz wants to be a Democratic Party hack rather than tell listeners the truth. Today he championed Libya as an Obama victory, using Lockerbie an excuse to justify the murder of civillians and scorched earth policy NATO used on Libya. Nevermind that Libya was attacked because of oil.Well Ed Schultz sometimes criticized Pres. Obama but to call Libya "a victory for Obama," is outrageous. Ed Yutz has alot of power brokers, think tankers, pols and DC insiders on his show, most of the time they eclipse the message of his listeners who favor major progressive reforms in Washington. It seems like Ed caved to the power brokers on this one.
Do we really have free speech and a free country, with government mouthpieces on every channel?
But, was Libya really a victory? Sounds more like senseless slaughter by the Obama Admin., to me.

Their subsidiaries: the NYT, WaHoPo, Fox, bomb maker MSNBC, and Time/Warner- CNN ... are still selling more lies and censorship about war.
Fascists and demagogues always need a scapegoat.Another indy blogger adds more ...

"A couple weeks ago, I wrote about how the outlets of the mainstream press in the US are rapidly losing readers and relevancy. These rags of wasted ink and paper, these “news” programs with screaming talk heads, are not “liberal” or “conservative.” They are nothing more than mouthpieces for the centralized whims of the DC war machine."

And still in another blog post by the same author ...
"You might not know it from any of the Pharoah-fanning media, but Obama is doing his best Alexander the Great Slaughterer impression in Afghanistan as his 21,000 troop “surge” is beginning to arrive. In fact, the bombing of Afghanistan has increased every single month Obama has been in office. There’s going to be a lot more detainees headed Bagram’s way thanks to O-bomber (and his equally bloodthirsty Sec. of State Hillary the Hawk) as he spends $200 million dollars a day bombing the Afghan countryside."
"I bring up Obama’s torture two-face because tomorrow, June 26, is the International Day of Support for Victims of Torture. The CIA, FBI, and the Pentagram (Pentagon) might be up for weeks if they thought about all of their victims of torture, as well as the other rarely-discussed victims: the 5th and 8th Amendments of the Bill of Rights."
