In one word, Cheney sums up the Bush Administration’s astonishing arrogance and disregard for the American People.
Also, Mark Levine on the Leslie Marshall show sums up the “inside scoop” behind the Obama Passport Spying Scandal and the reason he’s pushing the Democrats to hold Bush Administration officials in “inherent contempt.”
Mark asks the tough questions to:
Chairman John Conyers of the Judiciary Committee on contempt for the Executive Branch;
his hero, progressive Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky on progressive disappointment with Democrats;
soon-to-be Congresswoman Donna Edwards on how she beat the establishment;
and former Congressman Tom Allen on fighting dangerous dictators without war.
Mark’s guests today:
Carl Pope, Executive Director of the Sierra Club;
John Arensmeyer, Founder and CEO of Small Business Majority;
Author Christine Pelosi (daughter of the Speaker); and
Television Talk Show Host Phil Donahue
We know the Bush Justice Department went after Eliot Spitzer, sifting through his private bank records to find out if he’d done anything wrong and then spending high-level resources on the successful goose chase.
We know that Rove made up allegations about Alabama Governor Don Siegelman, jailng him to keep him from winning the election.
And now we find out that in January 2008, the Bush Administration also illegally spied on Barack Obama’s private passport.
How many prominent and powerful Democrats are being spied on by this Administration?
Let’s just say a heck of a lot more than Watergate.
No wonder they want retroactive amnesty.
If, as I suspect, all of this can be traced back to Karl Rove, this will finally be what we need to impeach Bush and Cheney. But it has to be done in time. Unfortunately, Rove, acting on behalf of Cheney and Bush, is careful about hiding his fingerprints.
This is far far far worse than Nixon. Investigate now!!!!
Barack Obama on Race in America
Barack Obama’s Speech on Race in America
I predicted this uproar regarding Obama’s Pastor Wright and am very glad Obama’s putting some distance between him and his controversial pastor. I’ve always felt that Pastor Wright was Obama’s Achilles’ heel.
What is the source of Wright’s incendiary comments?
How are they bound up in the tradition of the Black Church?
Is it fair to characterize him as anti-White? Or just pro-Black?
I disagree and strongly condemn much of what Pastor Wright has said in those few snippets shown widely on Fox News.
But I do think I understand where he’s coming from.
And so does Barack Obama.
This may be the best speech on race in America in our generation. You owe it to yourself to listen closely, whatever your particular race or hue.
McCain doesn’t know Al Qaeda from Iran. No wonder he’s unclear about who attacked us on September 11, 2001.
Osama Bin Laden wants to punish us for our cartoons.
The Supreme Court does its best to lift the DC gun ban. Good thing they have security measures that other DC residents don’t have. Whatever happened to “strict constructionism”?
And Obama is wrong on the Michigan revote. C’mon Obama. I want you to win, but you gotta win fair.
