Posted on 08/23/2012 9:39:38 PM PDT by Nachum
Thursday afternoon on Martin Bashirs MSNBC show, a disagreement over the implications of a current Army general denouncing military members who engage in partisan politics got heated quickly. The result was Bashir shouting down his opposing guest and cutting the segment short.
Earlier in the segment, GOP strategist Trey Hardin had said that military leaders are critical of the president, which prompted Bashir to bring up the recent Fox News quote in which General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, expresses disappointment in the anti-Obama campaign launched by several ex-military members (groups which Bashir characterized as Swift Boat groups, in reference to the 2004 pro-Bush groups that attacked John Kerrys military record).
If someone uses the uniform, whatever uniform, for partisan politics, I am disappointed because I think it does erode that bond of trust we have with the American people, Gen. Dempsey told Fox.

Why would any Republican go on MSNBC?
Fox shows have leftists on and let them get in their shots.
MSNBC is completely partisan.
You mean like permitting military personnel to appear in gay pride parades. Dempsey has no credibility with such remarks. The military has been politicized by Obama.
Martin Bashir is the same guy that coddled Michael Jackson while he was playing find the pickle with that 13 year old boy. Its so funny seeing liberals throw temper tantrums like little preschoolers. They are scared to death they are about to lose, tick tock tick tock time is almost out for them
Microsoft + NBC.
What could POSSIBLY go wrong?;)
MSNBC: Unfair and unbalanced!
Anybody who thinks Fox is conservative is just buying into marketing.
Dishonorable Disclosures (22:00 Youtube video)
Special Operations (OPSEC) (website to get involved)
The above quote comes from an active duty General speaking about retired military personnel. Think about it.
What do Dempsey and Bashir think of John Kerrey’s actions in the early 70s?
Ever hear of General Wesley Clark (d). That ran for president?
Exactly. Hypocrital liar.
The solution: don’t play their game. Don’t go on their stupid Barack Obama/leftist supporting shows. There’s nothing to be gained by going on with any of them.
Dear General Demsey
With regard to military uniforms and partisan politics do
the names US Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, and Dwight
Eisenhower mean anything to you? For a more recent
example how about Wes Clark?
PS: I would also add shame on MSNBC except for the fact
that they already have more shame than they can handle.
Swiftboat my arse.
Why do we have foreigners questioning Americans in the first place?
What is it with MSNBC and CNN giving all these shows to people like Bashir and Fareed Zakaria? Why don’t they just merge with Al Jazeera and (Iranian) Press TV and be done with it?!
Might I suggest Ctrl Alt Delete?
Yup, I want to see something along the lines of...
FREE REPUBLIC NEWS NETWORK
Hooo Boy, would that ever get the left boiling. :-)
Why take anything from a limey plick of arab descent?
A web based radio program of freerepublic would get me as a listener. In fact, each day the mods could select audio commentary sent in from freepers.
Microsoft is out of that game. They’ve cut their losses.
You’ll notice that if you type msnbc.com into a new browser tab, that it resolves to nbcnews.com.
You can say that again.
That they are a little right of center is about the best you can say about them.
Where has that incompetent little puke been hiding lately? I haven't seen him since the election in '08 when his political opinion was still terribly irrelevant.
He is now host of the Reality show “Stars Earn Stripes”.
These people never go away.
Another left wing media tramp starts to fade into oblivion.
I get the impression that these people clueless guests go on these MSNBC shows having never watched them before. This is Bashir’s act, as with Sharpton.
If you go on those shows you must go on the attack, and start with the MSNBC host. Call him a Obama mouth-piece.
FOX is the New Left...Reptile Repubs, Brainy Blondes, a bit of Saudi Arabia, True Blower O’Reilly, more crap that makes it almost as unwatchable as the rest of TeeVee!
I quit watching BOR about a decade ago. I don’t see how people stand to watch him. His ego/big head outgrew his studio long ago.
Good catch. I guess it is OK if you are a retired general officer and take sides.
