Bush owes us an apology

The President of the United States owes this country an apology.

It will not be offered, of course.

He does not realize its necessity.

There are now none around him who would tell him or could.

The last of them, it appears, was the very man whose letter provoked the President into the conduct, for which the apology is essential.

An apology is this President's only hope of regaining the slightest measure of ... Full Story »

Mr. Olbermann seems to be making an effort to challenge authority with his commentaries. This commentary, as well as others of his, does speak truth to power. That can only be good for America.

Though an editorial comment, Olbermann has found a 'voice' that is identifiable. His is a reasoned and well-thought out questioning of our president's position and pernicious use of words to manipulate the public.

I probably should not comment on this editorialization but I will, as Mr Olbermann says we are "allowed to think". I often find myself at odds with him. Just one comment, I believe he is reading into the president's words, his interpretation. I feel the president was saying it was unacceptable to him to think that. The President has often answered that his critics' have the right to express their opinions, and to me this is Mr. Olbermann's and he has gone to great lengths to make it known he disagrees with the President.

In my opinion, thoughtful commentary, like this, is the most important kind of journalism. What we see too much is simply talking heads with nothing to offer but their own spin (lies), and a person sitting between the two being totally bland and neutral. I want to see more of journalists who aren't afraid to call our leaders out. I'd like to see Chris Matthews or Tim Russert show the same courage, instead of the incessant placating and condescending to the powerful, of which both are so guilty.
