MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow lines up behind Obama’s attack on Libya

The ‘progressive’ darling lines up behind another imperialist adventure.

Not that this should be too surprising:

  1. I think she missed the point entirely, as the link points out.

    A good question would be why one even expects MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow to offer a strong critique of the present administration.  A strong critique of Teapublicans, yes, of RWNJ’s, sure, of union busting Governors, yes. But of O’s war policy?  Not likely.  And now that Wingers like Boehner are offering a criticism of Libya, even if hypocritical and for all the wrong reasons, she’s more comfortable and criticizing O for it.

    Her position or any positioned is done through political wrangling within the power-elite. There is a “liberal” faction in the power-elite that has some power within all bureaucracies and they get some of the spoils in exchange for compromises. Just because politics is dead for “the people” doesn’t mean politics is dead. There’s an enormous struggle going on below the surface that should be the focus of our interest.

    Maddow, being the most articulate spokesperson of the official left will take certain positions that will ingratiate herself to the segment of officialdom she caters to. All major-league news personalities represent a faction within the apparatus.  

  2. It’s bad when Bush did it, but okay when Obama does it.  Why am I detecting doublethink in this?

  3. for expanding upon Bush’s Wars of Error plus Gitmo at home for Bradley Manning among numerous other travesties.
