I seldom watch O'Reilly but while channel surfing last night I caught Bob Beckel on his show. He said something that rings true. O'Reilly was hitting him with facts and a few figures (on ethe sate of affairs) and Beckel said it didn't matter. O'Reilly laughed and asked how Beckel could say such a thing. Beckel's reply was simple and true. Right now people despise and distrust Republicans. That's a big wall to scale.Which is partly why Obama has a 60% favorabilty rating.
Sixty percent? I don't think so, in fact his numbers aren't all that different from his predecessors, but you'd think he was in the high seventy percentile range if you listen to the media.
America had an empire? When?
I was waiting for that one, MD I would take umbrage with part of the statement that the CIA was never the friend of Neo-Cons. Maybe, but they damned sure used them to perpetuate its wars.
