There Can Only Be One Quizat Haderach


After being dismayed by Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow for their shrill little critiques of President Obama's Tuesday night speech from the Oval Office, I was glad to see Keith Olbermann eat his words the following night after Obama delivered more than either of them could have ever imagined by talking BP out of twenty billion dollars.

However, instead of acknowledging that maybe Obama might actually know what he is doing and that the words that he used in the speech might have been cleverly chosen for the best political effect at that moment, Rachel Maddow decided to devote her closing segment to Rachel Maddow: The Speech We Should Have Heard From Obama. [ 2 ] "Rachel Maddow rewrites President Barack Obama's Tuesday Oval Office address to what she had hoped he was going to say". Needless to say that I was not overly impressed with her angry little speech. Obama has just pulled off another major coup, and Maddow is still saying that she can do a better job than the president.

There can only be one Quizat Haderach, Rachel.

I am glad that Obama got 20 Billion out of BP, but that is still not nearly enough. And I am not talking money. BP is breaking more laws, right now. Violating our labor laws, and our whistleblower laws, and pretending as if they have police powers.

20 Billion plus Tony Hayworth's Dick in a jar of formadehyde would be a good start. But just a start.

We are going to end up with a new crop of catastrophically ill first responders because of the way in which the clean up is not being handled safely. And Obama has done nothing to overtly address that.

So I happen to agree with Maddow and Olberman for that reason alone. However, there are others.

A shame BP will make that back with their next batch of oil wells instead of being thrown in the slammer like the criminals they are.

Seeing Eye Chick: Yes, but Obama said specifically that the 20 Billion was not a cap. No other president has ever done anything like this ever before, and yet people still complain... ;o)

Randal Graves: Yes, but think of all of the money they will have to spend on "apology" in coming years! ;o)

Sunshine: Don't worry, Laura! I still like her, I watch her every day! I just thought this segment was ridiculous. ;o)
