Skip to comments.Olbermann: Republicans have hijacked 9/11
Posted on 09/11/2008 7:11:00 AM PDT by GLH3IL
But 9/11 has become a brand name. A Republican campaign slogan. Propaganda of the lowest form. 9/11 has become 9/11 with a trademark logo.
9/11 (TM) has sustained a president who long ago should have been dismissed, or impeached. It has kept him and his gang of financial and constitutional crooks in office without literally any visible means of support.
The political party in office at the time of the attacks, at the local, state and national levels, the party which uniformly ignored the warnings and the presidential administration already through twenty percent of its first term and no longer wet behind the ears, have not only thus far escaped any blame for the malfeasance and criminal neglect that allowed the attacks to occur, but that presidency and that party, have managed to make it seem as if the other political party would be solely and irredeemably responsible for any similar catastrophe in the future.
And his childish, squealing, braying, Tourettes-like repetition of 9/11 (TM), was greeted not as conclusive evidence that he is consumed by massive guilt - hard-earned guilt, in fact but rather as some kind of political tour-de-force, an endorsement of your Vice Presidential nominee, a rookie governor , a facile and slick con artist.
All of this, sadistically disrespecting the dead of New York, and Washington, and Shanksville.
And yet of course the exact moment in which Sen. McCains Republicans showed the nation exactly how far they have fallen from the Better Angels of Mr. Lincolns Nature, came the next night.
What we got was not a tribute to the dead of 9/11, nor even a tribute to the responders, or the singularity of purpose we all felt. The Republicans gave us sociological pornography, a virtual snuff film.

The libs of this country, through their mouthpiece, have alot of audacity to speak this way! It was the failure of their guy, der Schlickmeister, whose administration failed to act against terrorist aggression against our nation. It was Jimmy Carter's ignorance that allowed the Islamic fundamentalists to gain the confidence to openly challege us. It was Gore, Kerry, and Obama that openly declared that we had already lost this fight, that had declared that we could never win, that had openly declared that we were at fault for that happended today 7 years ago.
Olbermann, it is sick SOB's like YOU that continue to give our enemies aid and comfort. It is bovine manure like YOU that hate America so much that you would rather see us fail than prevail in our global fight against terrorism. It is scum like YOU that will, ultimately in the light of history, be proven to be bloviating fools that should have been sent to prison for treason against the American people.
What an ass.
American liberals have hijacked Al Qaeda as their defacto friends.
This is an expression of a very disturbed mind.
Obama and Biden need to hold a press conference today where they read this verbatim. That’ll knock Palin off the front page.
I called this one, YEARS AGO...
And it’s going to come in the middle of EVERY ELECTION SEASON from now until a DEM President outlaws the observation of it in the interest of “healing”....
It reminds people that America really does have enemies, and that is never good for Democrats.
What a PIG!
If I wanted to hear an ahole, I'd pass gas.
Olbermann....., just remember, words are not just words as OBambi would have ‘us’ believe. There have been many ‘words’ spoken in this election year by many which will not be soon forgotten.
Olbermann, soon you will realize that this fine country will speak for herself.
This one just doesn’t know when to stop, does he.
I bet this chicken-sht quisling lives every minute dreading the ass-kicking that might await him around any corner.
Sure, Keith. Why should we worry about a few thousand dead Americans, or a vicious attack on our way of life? After all, Bush looked pretty damned good after 9/11 - clearly the whole thing was simply designed to boost the Republican Party.
They used to call it ‘lunacy’. Today, I guess it gets you a cushy network job. :-P
If the standard of ‘giving aid and comfort to the enemy’ could be applied, Olbermann would be behind bars right now.
I will never voluntarily watch him or support him in any way.
I quit channel surfing for this very reason. I find my self in a very bad way, should I see or hear even 15 seconds of this putz.
“What an ass.”
I second that. If Republicans have hijacked 9/11 then Democrats caused 9/11 by their wussie look the other way policies.
