Did anyone catch MSNBC's coverage of President Bush's farewell address last night? I did and I was shocked. Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann did not waste any time attacking our President. In my opinion their behavior proved that they are not journalists. Like Sean Hannity, Olbermann and Matthews have proven they are little more than partisan hacks. MSNBC should fire both of them or, at the very least, not allow them to cover news stories. If you missed MSNBC last night, you can read Michael Calderone's blog on the subject and view a youtube video of the coverage by clicking here. The Bush administration has been a mixed bag. On the positive side his response to 9/11 was perfect, we have not been attacked since 9/11 despite many predictions, he limited embryonic stem cell research, his surge effort in Iraq has been a success, and his transfer to Mr. Obama has been what I except from our government leaders. On the down side he went to war in Iraq without enough troops, he allowed Iraq to fall into civil war for a time, he did not finish the job in Afghanistan, and he did not do enough to end the holocaust of abortion. So Bush has a mixed record. Some good, some bad. However it will take years for historians to began to understand the long-term impact of the Bush administration. Men like Matthews, Olbermann, and Hannity only defeat themselves when they seek to verbally destroy our leaders. We should support our leaders, agree with them when we can, disagree with them when we must. But we should always pray for them, for our nation, and for the success of both. As Mr. Obama takes power that is what I am doing. I pray for his success in office and that he would avoid fulfilling some of his campaign promises. I will pray for his success as President, agree and support him when I can, and strongly disagree with him when I must. I did that with Bush and I will do that with every person who is President during my lifetime.
