MSNBC: Opposing Obama’s Olympic Push “Rivals Jane Fonda Sitting on a Gun in North Vietnam”

See Big Ed decry the Republicans' "lack of patriotism."

In the misty past of ten months ago, dissent was patriotic, mass protests were a sign of passionate civic engagement, and the greatest sin any politician could commit was questioning someone’s patriotism. But that was America, B.B.O. (Before Barack Obama). Now dissent is potential incitement, middle American protesters are Swastika-carrying yokels, and disagreeing with a president’s decision to put his hometown above the well-being of troops in Afghanistan demonstrates a “lack of patriotism.”

On Friday’s edition of MSNBC’s “The Ed Show,” Ed Schultz blamed Chicago’s first-round rejection, not on Rio or behind-the-scenes maneuvering, but on American conservatives who questioned whether Obama ought to spend more time finalizing his Afghanistan strategy — incredibly saying their actions were comparable to Jane Fonda’s in Vietnam.

He began by blaming the loss, not on Obama’s failed full court press, but on Republicans….

Because tourist dollars are the moral equivalent of protecting Vietnamese freedom of religion?

Materialist scum.

I was against the moron and his wife arrogantly “taking the gloves off” and using the office of the President to try to sell the Olympics to reward his home town full of crooked cronies.

Not the Olympics coming to the US.

Actually, the painful decision-making process for picking a dog, the drop-everything-and-pander-to-the-IOC, the get-away dates with Michelle-Omarosa to NYC, all the while the big red phone from his generals is rolling to voicemail - It sure makes an good image for Barry himself sitting in Jane’s NV gun-battery seat. This is what happens when a dangerously inexperienced left-winger is elected, gets in way over his head, and gets all wee-weed up. He starts acting stupidly.

Does anyone at MSNBC think before they engage their mouths?

Perhaps Ed has an opinion regarding Obama’s persistant bashing of America every time he has an international audiance?
Perhaps Ed is unaware of the Constitutional priorities of the President? Afghanistan, Iran, unemployment....
How can Obama bash America and then have the ego to believe his priority should be to “charm” the IOC into handing Chicacgo the Olympics?
Conservatives are cheering the smackdown of his ego and his misplaced priorities.

Talk about a good SNL skit...video of BO and wifey going out and flying all over the place and a split screen of a general on the phone hearing voice mail...funny if not so serious

"...all the while the big red phone from his generals is rolling to voicemail"

Brilliant analogy, SERKIT. That would make a devastating TV ad -- I could see it going viral in a flash. In the meantime, Rush and Shanklin could do it on audio. Good show!

Two entirely different things. How idiotic for MSNBC.

MSNBC Ed Shulz, Maddow and Olbermann been on this theme daily with “Republicans hate America” and “Conservatives Hate America” .

It’s a pretty entertaining attempt to co-opt talking points. Still their viewership is tiny (and not all are followers)

Wait a second. I thought the left loved the fact that Jane Fonda “stood up to the man” and supported our enemies during a time of war. Is the left speaking in support of us being against the Olympics going to Chicago? :)

It’s not going to be possible to tag “republicans” or “conservatives” as opposing American values.
Leftists hate American values, and they revel in that position.

The tide is against dems this year. If McCain was president, things would be different. I get a kick out of the liberal cheer leading on MSNBC for that ‘cost saving’ public option.

I don't know where Ed Schultz lives, nor do I care, but let HIM pay for the Olympics if he wants them so much.

King Richie II, aka Mayor Daley, would have picked the pockets of everyone in IL to cover the losses. And losses there would have been. Not so much through corruption, that'd be peanuts, but on the construction costs.

I started thinking of the overall scope, like the $1 BILLION Olympic Village. And in my professional opinion, around the clock work, double and triple time, would have been required. And THAT ain't in NO budget.

And no. There would NOT have been any Bid Rigging. Not in Chicago, not any more. A HUGH scandal in the mid 80's put that to an end. The Feds, US Attorney & FBI, now watch that like Vultures targeting a dead Deer. Public Bids in the Chi Metro Area are prolly the most honest in the USA.

She should have been thrown under a U.S. tank 40 years ago.

The Olympics is not about patriotism. It’s not about national glory. It’s about an international peace that lets atheletes, wherever they be from, demonstrate their glory.

Funny how she called "anti war"

A women that sits on a AAA gun wearing a helmet does not look very anti war, more like very very pro one side in a war....

Before opening the thread I knew exactly who’d made the comment. MSNBC brought Schultz on to make Olbermann look (relatively) sane.

Does MSNBC purposfully search for fugly crazy people to put on air? I just wondered because it seems like everyone onair over there fits that criteria as does most of their audience.
