RACHEL MADDOW: SOTU SPEECH WAS A 'PRAYER TO THE FREE MARKET'

Rachel Maddow characterized President Obama's State of the Union address as "more of a CEO-style pep talk than a football-rally style pep talk."

She called the speech a "prayer to the free market, to the nation building in our own nation," and said that Obama had defined the political center "not so much by what's wrong with both sides, but by what Mr. Obama likes from each party's wishlist."

Maddow also noted that the mood in the House chamber was "more subdued than in years past."

I'll just mention that, thank God, I'm not the only citizen, that feels this way!! The reason why I come down on O'bama the way I do, is the fact that he had such a "laser like" vision, for the future of America, when running for the White House. Other candidates, were either talking out of their ass, or they simply did not have a detailed plan, on where we need to go as a nation.

In my opinion, O'bama connected with the people, because he DID NOT, sound like a pep rally, as Rachael mentioned. His message was simple and concise. He knew the problems with this country, and had a specific game plan, to get where we needed to be. He talked like a "man on a mission." He even used that phrase several times, after he was elected president. (but not for long) He also, didn't sound like a cold war lunatic, like so many others have. And yes, Rachael was right on, on the pep rally for the CEO'S.

In short, he let everyone down who voted for him. People were hurt, when he "kneepadded" himself to the big corporations. Barrack had a REAL VISION for this country. But more importantly, he ruined a lot of people's vision for america as well.

It's one thing, to fight "tooth and nails," against the filthy right. Even if he had lost, he would of been remembered as a fighter. Much of the characteristics, a REAL president should have.

It's sad, it really really is man!! :cry:

I FULLY INTEND TO CONTINUE TO WATCH RACHEL!!!!!


Rachel Maddow Issues A Warning To Her Viewers (VIDEO) :D :wink: :!: :mrgreen: :D

Rachel Maddow issued a warning to some of her viewers on her Tuesday show, telling them that, just by watching her, they could wind up the target of conservative groups.

Maddow was reacting to a statement by the Mackinac Center, a right-wing think tank in Michigan which has been in the press recently for, among other things, filing a Freedom of Information request to gain access to the emails of any labor professors at three public universities in Michigan who have used the word "Maddow" in an email. Maddow covered the controversy after a report in Talking Points Memo about it appeared last week. On Monday, though, the center published a statement on its website, explaining why it was targeting Maddow:

We asked for these emails first because Ms. Maddow had recently criticized at length Michigan's governor and his labor-related legislation in a TV segment virally circulated on the Web, and second because...by including emails referring to Ms. Maddow, we were aiming to generate a more narrowly targeted set of emails.

More broadly, the center said, it was seeking to find whether the professors had used tax dollars improperly or even acted illegally. Unsurprisingly, Maddow reacted with some concern to this statement. She wondered why, if the center was seeking to "narrow its search" through her name because she had done stories about Michigan's governor, it did not also target the welter of other outlets, writers and websites that had also covered the governor.

Her answer seemed to be that she was being targeted for political reasons. The search, she said, "only applies specifically to professors...who saw something on this TV show hosted by this liberal." Maddow thanked her viewers for "watching this show in this year in this era of big intrusive government conservatism." And she warned that, in certain cases, if they mentioned her name, they could be targeted by conservatives who would try to "embarrass" them.

"Watching this TV show...should not be an act of bravery," she said. "The conservative movement is making sure that you know it is. You are on their list and they are coming after you. If it feels cold all of a sudden, if that gives you a shiver, it is supposed to. That's how they roll."
