Who is Anti-War Now?

Joe: as you know I am all for throwing out Gadafi, having been in the military for 10 years I do have some reservations because US and others will die. I watch Fox frequently but I also watch CNN and of course MSNBC to see Ed, Rachel, & Lawrence. They get things right and they also shed light on issues where Republicans are spinning issues and they are good of course at pointing out hypocritical positions. I gues I am just surprised they are so pro-war. I respected their position when they were brutal towards Bush, I respect the Quakers and believers of non-violence but it is now becoming clear that both parties support war as long as its their guy, their party in power. Ed and Rachel are so supportive of war particullarly Ed. There are real questions about who we are supporting and if they can win. In jus a word I’m surprised, I thought they would have some reservations… -Bob

Red State
It really has been bizarre to see both Rachel Maddow and Ed Schultz do so much pro-Obama spinning to support the war on Libya. Obama didn’t approach Congress? Great strategy! No oval office address to the nation? He’s not a cowboy like George Bush! And you just know that if a Republican president had done this, Maddow and Schultz would be doing 180s to condemn the action. At least the anti-war Ralph Naders are consistent, but many of them are quiet this time.

MSNBC didn’t air one second of Senator Barack Obama’s or Senator Joe Biden’s or Senator Hillary Clinton’s condemnations of the Iraq War. Senator Biden once said that not approaching Congress first was an impeachable offense, but to MSNBC, this hypocrisy is not “what’s true in the world.”
NewsBusters discusses a little of this hypocrisy, but the Schultz-Maddow Obama-spin is really much worse to anyone who knows the facts:
