Keith Olbermann Coined General ‘Betray Us,’ Not MoveOn
Newsbusters ^ | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 09/12/2007 6:19:49 PM PDT by camerakid400

While right-thinking people across the fruited plain cast their anger at MoveOn for its disgraceful ad placed in Monday's New York Times, "Countdown" host Keith Olbermann should be sharing the dishonor.

As adroitly identified at Olbermann Watch Wednesday: "Long before the moveon [sic] ‘Betray Us' advertisement, back on August 16th, the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann began his ‘newscast' in the usual fashion, bellowing the opening spiel."

Taken directly from MSNBC.com's transcript that evening (emphasis added):

Which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? The Petraeus report, less Petraeus, more betrayaeus (ph). The definitive assessment of the surge will not only not be written by General Petraeus, it will not be presented by General Petraeus. Secretaries Gates and Rice will be the messengers. The White House insists General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker will be there to testify.

Furthermore, as he began his report, the picture to the above-right was displayed.

Does this make Olbermann the Worst Person in the World?

It sounds like something the top-tapping Olbermann would come up with.

Let Olberman put on an Army uniform and go face to face with the General and say that. I would bet he’s a coward.

To Keith Olbermann, it makes no difference whether he sticks a knife in the back of a general or a private. All in the name of his own warped limousine liberal sense of arrogance and self certainty.

Olbermann is a punk and a traitor.

Actually I think it was coined by The Guardian.

Let me check it out.

Olbermann isn’t smart enough to coin a phrase - he got it from his buddies at moooo-venon...

Actually Rush Limbaugh coined this term months ago. But the difference is that he used it for One of the CONgessional Democrats.

Actually, there’s a koskiddie who would disagree (unless the koskid was actually Olbie). Someone on a rightie blog found a June post at dKos where it was posted. I was looking for it in my notes a few minutes ago and couldn’t find it.

Other than videos put up at Hot Air to poke fun at the man, I’ve never watched him.

Back when the last presidential election was going on..one of the things I did to amuse myself was to email Keithy poo. He actually would answer back within minutes...and we would have a back and forth emailing war. It ended with me telling him that he needed to spend his time doing actual research instead of engaging in rhetoric he had no clue about in emails...then I dismissed him because he was boring me. He wrote back and told me nobody dismisses him...my response was ..wellll I just did

FYI....Aug. 16 isn’t the first time he used it. He used it many times after that as well.

Ignore him; he’d be better off going back to commenting on the Giants, Red Sox and Lakers. He knows quite a bit about those subjects.

To call Olberman an arrogant ass is an insult to all the arrogant asses out there. And now I can’t even watch the football game Sunday night without him appearing. Aaaaccckkk!

General 'Betray us' ay Keith? Pretty clever for an 'Old Beer man'

General Petraeus has more dignity in his left nostril nasal hairs than you possess in todem KO.

Olbermoan is the result of a botched partial birth abortion. The doctors at the butchershop sucked out his brain but didn’t dispose of his worthless body. He has no brain.

NBC and their off shoot have gone far enough. I know it will be hard to do but I’m finding a list of GE products that I can boycott. They have become anti-American.

While he should definitely be dishonored Keith the Bedwetter is watched by no one. A baker's dozen of slobbering Demokratz and MSM surrender monkeys do read the NY Slimes.

speaking of Sunday night football, did you see him waving that red phone around and calling himself the world’s worst person in his debut a week ago? It was pitiful— I almost started a vanity thread to see if anybody else saw it. If Limbaugh got fired the first week for offending sensibilities, Olbermann should have been fired the first week for offending intelligence. Costas just looked at him when he was done, like “what did I do to myself, bringing this jerk on board?”

[Duncan Hunter] Of course on the side where the democrats put their political hat on, and that is with respect to policy in Iraq.  Obviously the person calling the shots there is Nancy Pelosi.  And I think she is calling the wrong shots.  I thought the statement by the democrat whip, Jim Clyburn, who said, "good news from General Petraeus in September would be bad news for the democrat party". The idea that good news off the battlefield is bad for a political party in the United States, I thought that was a tragedy that that statement was made and a sorry reflection on the fact that the democrats look at Iraq not through the prism of national interests; but through the prism of politics.  That is bad for our country.

I like that great old Senator Henry 'Scoop' Jackson who was one of the great democrat strong defense leaders of our time.  He said, 'in time of war national policy should emanate from our shore with one voice'.  He liked to arm wrestle over spending on transportation and other things; but he supported the President in matters of national security.  And the idea that the democrats are pulling away from us even before General Petraeus has made his statement, prepping the ground for the statement, that is a tragedy for our country.

Who is Olbermann? Does he still have a show? He is not worth a worry. I’ve picked things out of my nose with more substance than him.

That’s just a ploy to allow him to attack others... he’ll say, “Hey, I was the first one I attacked. Can’t you take a joke?”

If true, KO needs to leave nicknaming to those who are good at it. Like his former colleague Chris Berman.

Good work, kiddo! He knows he is not universally loved.

But the best way to dismiss K-OlderMan is with a mean right hook to that perfectly confected grille of his.

With one’s weight behind it.

probably he’s playing to 50 X his usual boutique audience, so I doubt he’ll be letting the spit fly anyway.

He is much more than just a punk and a traitor, but that is a very good start! You are dead right. The jerk really is a bully and a punk. Maybe a gun-toting jealous husband will be in his future... I can only hope.

I hate bullies and punks.

Olbermann should be hung for treason (among other reasons).
