Well, clearly, while the eventual fate of of LIbya and it’s
people must be considered at some point, our real
priority should be using this as an opportunity to put the
boot into Michael Moore. Jeeze us, that is sad. I will state
for the record, this Michael Moore fan has never looked
to him for anything definitive on World Affairs, and I do
like him quite a lot. Although I don’t remember this level
of distaste for Moore back when he was with the “Clinton
is killing Millions of Iraqs with Sanctions” Crowd. Or as they sometimes called it, “genocide through sanctions.”
Which brings us to the unpleasant truth for seasoned
Cooper watcher, NOTHING Marc writes here about Gadhafi is a very far cry from what could have been rightfully stated about Milosevic, and Marc Cooper led the daily
attempt to hang Clinton, and any Democrat who signed
on, from his radio show at KPFK. “The hall of shame”
Marc darkly intoned on those who voted with the Pres.
Later, when those on the left were confronted with excesses far beyond what Cooper sights here, he
more charitably told his listeners, “people got confused.”
“Gosh”, one was left to mordantly reply, “how did that happen?”
Soooo….. here we are again. Well, maybe Marc has grown up some, but at least PART of the problem with Marc’s Pres (take the reflex contempt Clinton got and
flip it over, that’s Coop on Obama) is that he has A) followed a hapless course in Afghanistan, and B) ended the war in Iran by setting up shop there. He’s kept Bush’s Sec of Defense. The war department has seemed to call the shots form day one. He has created the impression of the Nobel Prize Winner who never met a war he didn’t like.
So that, for all Marc’s worrying about dumb old lefties
(would Marc REALLY respect someone who said no U.S. intervention ever, under any conditions?) is a big part of the mix. Cooper is also playing the Hitchens game, citing the worst arguments of the fringe (Tweets yet) to settle old scores and justify his problematic choice. By the way,
Richard Cohen’s anti-Obama Op Ed may be the single
worst piece of garbage, just terrible writing, I have
ever confronted. And it’s not a “Tweet,” it’s an editorial
in a major national newspaper. http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/obamas-muddled-message-on-the-middle-east/2011/03/21/ABBOa48_print.html
No matter what the right wing will always have their way in presenting their information to the public better then the left because they don’t nit pick each other to death. Mr.Cooper I find your blog even steven, keep up the good work an by the I saw the arbitron rating even KHJ-AM beat out KPFK-FM. Who listen to KHJ?
