tv Countdown With Keith Olbermann MSNBC September 1, 2009 1:00am-2:00am EDT
ruining the country's reputation? needlessly torturing detainees who are talking. and republican racism and lying about being racism continues. >> the great white hope. >> when that kansas congress claimed she didn't know the racist origins of that phrase? last month, she supported a house resolution to pardon jack johnson. the resolution said whereas the victory of jack johnson over tommy burns prompted a search for a white jackson could have been the search for the great white hope, she lied. we can count on the far right to screw it up somehow. >> oh, ligarh -- oligarrh? the one that's missing issy? >> it gets worse. >> walk softly and carry a big
stick. speak softly. theodore roosevelt said speak softly and -- oh, never mind. all that and more on "countdown." >> the one that's missing is y. some of them tonight are insisting the late ted kennedy would have sold out the public option, trusting their own propaganda instead of the letter written by the dying senator to the pope. any pretext of bipartisanship was negotiated over health care was thrown under the bus by four senators including mr. grassley of iowa. leaving the bargaining, bargaining for the sincerity of the japanese white house that went in jof 17, 1941. what would ted kennedy would have done. the liberal lion answering it
himself, a letter written to the pope. his words read in the fading light besides his grave by cardinal mccarrick, the archbishop emeritus of washington. >> even though i'm ill, i'm committed to doing everything i can to achieve access to health care for everyone in my country. this has been the political cause of my life. >> if somehow that directive were not clear enough indication of senator kennedy's intentions -- earlier that day -- in his funeral in boston, senator kennedy's grandson, max, having offered this prayer. >> for what my grandpa called "the cause of his life" as he said so often -- in every part of this land, that every american would have decent quality health care as a fundment right and not a privilege. we pray to the lord. >> senator orrin hatch in boston to hear young max allen's prayer.
but despite that, the following morning, senator hatch said senator kennedy would have compromised on the political cause of his life. >> when he recognized, you know, he couldn't get everything that he wanted. but he could get a good bill by working with the other side and making true compromise, he could come through. >> do you think he would move in that direction? >> i have no doubt about it. >> you're the only one. salt lake city friday, two days after kennedy's death, senator bennett stating that the fundraising headliner was karl rove, quote, the number one assignment in 2009 is kill obama-care. senator grassley saying the same day, it's time to kill the bill. the bulk of the negotiations by the senate finance committee including senator grassley who we learned sent out a letter saying he set the record straight to my firm and unwavers opposition to government-run
health care. and immediate support in helping me defeat it. and if senator ted kennedy in the senate is passed, it would be a pathway to a government health care system. more apparent than ever, governor patrick of massachusetts setting the 19th of january as the date of the special election to replace the senator in the senate. and expressing the desire to change state law so an interim appointment could be placed in the meantime. and knocking down the thought that vicki kennedy would be interest in the position. >> mrs. kennedy is not interest in the position. >> to the veteran of the senate. laurence o'donnell who served as chief of staff to the finance committee. good evening. >> good to be here. >> the grassley letter prompting a more outrage and urgency with each revelation about this man in iowa, why is any democrat still negotiating with the republicans and particularly, with mr. grassley whose word seems to mean absolutely nothing. >> well, let's see how much they
are negotiating with them when they get back from the august recess. that fundraising letter is the most devastating so far. obama-care is a broad term to the recipients of that letter means any form of health care reform. so that's as bad a thing as we heard from grassley so far. >> the notion, meantime, floated by people from mr. hatch and republicans playing on a perpetual loop from fox on right wing radio that senator kennedy would have compromised, particularly regarding the public option. you worked with senator kennedy on the health care reform bill process as somebody who's in there and now i presumably heard the senator's letter to the pope right after the senator's death during his burial? how do you respond to the notion from mr. hatch? >> i do not presume to speak for the senate. he's no longer with us. i think john kerry, chris dodd can do that. they had conversations with him specifically about where he stands -- stood on it this year. we do have a history.
there's a history of no compromise with ted kennedy on health care reform and the central principles of it. he refused to compromise with president nixon when he offered a very, railroad strong employer-mandate bill which was basically the shape of the clinton bill 20 years later. ted kennedy came to regret that. he told him by 2004 that he did regret not doing business with richard nixon. but after that, he became unyielding, also, when president clinton wanted him to be unyielding, which was in 1994. you'll remember, president clinton held up a veto pen and said i'll veto anything that does not have universal coverage and the mechanism for that was the employer mandate. it was the tough get that legislative go-round. that's what we couldn't get passed. ted kennedy did get the employer mandate passed in his committee including orrin hatch. he did not compromise any of the central principles of the bill to get orrin hatch's vote.
this time around, chris dodd was in close communication about what to do. chris dodd passed the bill out of the committee with zero republican votes, orrin hatch voting against it. john mccain voting against it. ted kennedy called him the next morning the first thing and did not say why didn't you get orrin hatch? he called to congratulate him for the way he passed the bill and what was in it? >> you said how much negotiating the democrats do after the break is over. the republican radio address, senator inzy part of the purportedly bipartisan talks said the democrats and the health care prosoposals would me our nation sicker without saving money, raid medicare, and reduce the relationship between the doctor and the patient. those remarks are illuminating. are his response illuminating. do they get it in the white house? >> i think they should be counting envy out.
how can you imagine the republican from wyoming to be onboard surprised me. he, too, was on the kennedy committee. he voted against the kennedy bill. he did not engage in negotiations with chris dodd on that bill. he has been involved in the finance committee on negotiations which have been more -- looser, more open, but i -- i never saw a route to getting his vote on what the president wants, which is this public option and other elements. and i don't see it now. and so the white house, the problem for the white house is this is very bad news when they get to the end of the august recess and they realized there are no republican vote ifs they's what they're realizing. because they did not have a strategy to do this without republican votes. >> political analyst and huffing ton post, as always, sir, thanks. >> thanks. >> duval patrick said mrs. kennedy does not want that appointment if it happens to succeed her husband. who, then, and what now?
the head tore in chief of huffing ton post.com. good evening. >> good evening, keith. >> to your knowledge, is massachusetts now indeed expected to alter the law about an interim appointment and will it get to somebody who represents senator kennedy's vote and vision on health care and get them sooner rather than later? >> well, it's not certain by any means. there's a lot of pressure to actually change the law. so somebody can fill the seat for the next five months. and that person has to proposition, as ypromise, as you know, keith, that they're not going to run in the special election. so it's truly an interim appointment. since vicki kennedy took herself out of the running, down to joe kennedy or teddy kennedy. even though teddy kennedy jr. lives in connecticut, he has a home in hyannis port. legally, he could be considered. and then, of course, all of the staffers. there's amazing ted kennedy staffers who have been with him for over 40 years.
an icon in terms of the way she cares for the constituents are michael myers, spearheaded the health care policy team. there is a great group of staffers who really believed in what the senator believe in may also be considered. >> will there be a blowback if it's teddy kennedy jr., joe kennedy, be involved in either of those who didn't want the name, carried the weight, even if it was less than five months and there was a guarantee that we found out that the interim senator would not be run in january. >> yeah, of course. it hasn't been written about it. so much is at stake with the health care legislation that they wouldn't let ted kennedy's memory stand in the way.
if bobby kennedy or jack kennedy wanted to complete the term, there might be blow back. >> who would do it? who would do it well? who would do it? >> well, i'm told that senior staffers, like the ones mentioned, or little phil, who you may remember spoke at the memorial. the former staffer and the lawyer in massachusetts, or kerry parker, the legislative director, with senator kennedy's staff for 40 years that all of them are also being considered if the law is changed. we don't know yet. >> as to the special election in january, is there a chance that the seat might not remain friendly in democratic hands? the state did elect a republican governor previous to this one. >> actually, keith, i really believes it depends on three
factors. one is who it will be. ed markey, barney frank, they have a huge following in the state. who the republican would be. mitt romney? what the conditions on the ground may be. massachusetts already has about 9% unemployment. not quite, but almost. so foreclosures are high. what would be happening by the time the special election comes in january. >> double back to conclude this to the grassley letter. is that surprising you that mr. grassley should negotiate that his fundraiser told supporters my job is to kill obama-care? >> actually, it doesn't surprise me. but i'm surprised that it surprises the white house. it calls the inzy commentse
lummenating and to have any hope that grassley could support any real health care reform legislation? i find that incredibly surprising. >> i suppose the spirit, the idea of it not being surprising is charming in one way. but i think you're right in the whole picture. arianna huffing ton. thank you. >> thank you, keith. the republican approach on health care seems to negotiate while back home, promising to kill, take no prisoners. it would have served them well when it cams to detention, rendition, and torture. but we have the astonishing spectacle of the former vice president, demanding no investigation be made of the crimes committed by him and the others, but also if you reverse engineer his premise, insisting that the obama administration should be able to break any laws it feels like breaking and never itself be subject to any investigation, next.

and glenn beck might be a little more credible if he didn't screw up his own stunts, misspell key words in his demagoguery and insult everywhere from shakespeare to teddy roosevelt -- do what and carry a big stick? at was sick! i've been hangin' up there for, what, like, forty years? and then - wham - here i am smacking the pretty off that windshield of yours. oh, what you're looking for an apology? well, toss another coin in the wishing well, pal. it's not happenin'. limb: hey, what's up, donnie? how you been? anncr: accidents are bad. anncr:but geico's good ding! with onsite windshield replacement. but i've still got room for the internet. with my new netbook from at&t. with its built-in 3g network, it's fast and small, so it goes places other laptops can't.
aren't trying anymore. he told fox news cia operatives investigated for torture would have to pay for their own lawyers, even chris wallace corrected him. not the first time he said it, mind you, but the second. wallace was silent. cheney said, quote, i don't know who was running it. this guy, he was in all of the papers. john brennan, he was in the cia when you were vice president. grandpa dick claiming before the prelame li preliminary investigation is even done, it's all political. >> they'll investigate the cia personnel who carried out those investigations. i think it's an outrageous political act that will do great damage long term to our capacity the being able to have people take on political jobs. >> an outrageous police call act to be carried out by this man, john durham, appointed by the bush justice department to look at the interrogation videos.
outrageous political act recommended by the office of responsibility, the ethics office of the bush justice department. they questioned why the ethics office recommended the investigation. the same office as the president obama claims, the same office that suggests disbarring bush lawyers. and the torture must have worked, because al qaeda has not attacked again. the vice president's ignorance about terrorism immune to the fact that the first world trade center bombing was followed by 8 1/2 years without an attack. >> the other things that offends the hell out of me, frankly, chris, is we had a track record now of eight years of defending the nation against mass casualty attacks against al qaeda. the approach of the obama administration should be to come to those people involve in that
policy and say how did you do it. >> with us, jeremy skahill and the author of "blackwater." good evening. >> sobering to think the man had the finger on the trigger. >> and still thinks he does. >> mr. obama, mr. holder said -- they both did this, they will only investigate those who went beyond the bush-cheney guideline which is infuriated many on the left on the pretext of breaking the law is enough to merit investigation. let alone breaking the law that broke the law. but why would cheney object to obama enforcing rules that come from bush and cheney. >> remember, dick cheney doesn't want the american people, not to mention the u.s. congress to know anything that happen in the administration, when he took us to the dark side as he talked about i. let's remember, here. these legal justifications quote/unquote for torture, that's what it was. for cheney and their lawyers that developed they were stretches of the law to begin with. they violate the basic
principles of multiple conventions, including the convention against torture, which was, of course, ratified under the militant left disgruntled reagan that it's the geneva convention the man who never knew torture for eight years john mccain. so the fact that dick cheney wants to cover up all the criminality, all of the wrongdoing. >> no proof, no evidence torture saved anyone. even in the left wing, it's not there. you might be able to refer it from what is written there. but it's not in the report. chris wallace failed to ask about if it hurt us? never at all brought the negatives up in this interview? >> right. well, watching chris wallace quote/unquote interview dick
cheney, it was like watching a teenage journalist interview the jonas brothers. the only way it could have been lower is if sarah palin interviewed cheney herself. if you looked at the questions, there wasn't a single hard question there. he corrected him on the issue of the cia paying for the defense of these individuals. we don't have real journalism for the most part when we talk about the question of torture. the fact is that the american people were aware in detail, drum beat coverage being done in their name, power drills, squeezing of testicles, slamming people's heads against walls, all of the people that went on, it would stop. that's the role of journalism. we see this with dick cheney, a war criminal. >> let me reverse engineer this as i suggested. has it occurred to cheney or anyone who defends him what he's ultimately suggesting for the future if any administration can't look back at what crimes or wrongdoing may have been committed by the previous one, that that's basically a signal
to anybody in the obama administration, go ahead, do anything you want. no one in the future can look back and investigate you ise sen lis -- essentially a divine right of passage. >> he's fighting to have the policies continue. that's the point. he's not thinking about what the obama people are going to do, he thinks about what he wants to continue to happen in the dark corners of the earth. that raises a more important point. the obama administration needs to hold these individuals accountable from top to bottom so we send a message to go forward that torture is unacceptable in this country. the media set the tone and they get an f. for the coverage on the issue. >> last point, briefly. cheney wanted to attack iran. he mentioned this, finally. nobody in the his own administration agreed with him. what does that tell us? >> given the amount of power cheney had. shows how close to nuclear midnight we were when it comes to war in iran. a vindication of all of the reporting that seymour hirsch did about cheney's role in the
threats against iran. >> some ideas were too crazy even for george bush. >> also true. >> thank you for coming in. >> thank you. i don't want to complain, but the poll dancers in this place leave a lot to be desired. as does she -- back on the air. billed as an expert on health care reform while he's being paid by health care companies to kill health care reform. the lives of betsy mccoy ahead.

. what happens if republican supporters aro turf a republican town hall. one of the great underrated american actors. frederick march played everything and everybody from jeckyl and hyde to norman bane and a star is born. to willy lohman to the president and seven days in may to the william jennings character from inherit the wind. he worked from 1931 to 1973. let's play "odd ball." begin in beijing as china's invisible man appears for his vanishing act. the body paint allows the local artist to camouflage himself to the nooks and crannies. they paint the human chameleon while he stands perfectly still. watch as he disappears to this

congressman said he meant extremist. how do you spell relief? i spell it by glenn beck and laughing out loud as he insults himself again. date line, virginia beach. political resume. republican candidate for virginia. he referred to his masters thesis. "the washington post" found it in the university's library. he described women as having jobs detrimental to the family, called legalized use of contraceptive illogical and insists they marry culls over co-hab day tors, homosexual s o foreign caters. 1989? oh, good-bye, mr. mcdonnell. rear admiral henry j. smith hired the renden group to vet journalists seeking to get in
iraq. they graded journalists on whether they were willing to emphasize positive coverage. the rear admiral smith has fired the group. and pete olausson held a health care town hall he told the story of brittany, the pregnant woman who could not find a doctor to treat her unborn child's heart defect and is convinced the child would not have been born if there was a public option. protest and shouting cut two ways. someone in the town hall yelled -- that's not true. then it was olly-olly-oxenfree. >> that's not true. >> wow. wow. wow. >> that's not true. >> and -- >> the insurance company turned her down. not the government. the private insurance turned her down. not the government. my god -- that's not the government.
that's not the government. >> it would be the government. >> all of the -- >> that's not the government. >> quiet! >> the government has set it up before to tear it down. >> death panel. death panel. >> i want to thank y'all for coming. >> challenged by reality, brittany was not denied doctors, she was denied insurance. congressman pete olausson lasted 47 seconds before he shut the meeting down. 47 seconds. congressman, congratulations. there's a doe in the back yard to wants the deer in the headlights look back when you're done with it. ♪ doe a deer my digestive system didn't always behave. whatever i did my digestive upsets came back. but then came align. only align contains bifantis, a patented probiotic. it promotes a healthier digestive system helping to restore my natural balance with ongoing probiotic protection.
himself a right wing terrorist meant to say extremist, and it's his fault, not the congressman. and secessionist in texas holding a rally with a gubernatorial candidate saying they know it might mean a bloody war. lin jenkins. the kansas lawmaker let this fly at a recent town hall meeting. >> to find the great white hope. and i suggest to any of you that are concerned about that that are republicans, there are great young republican minds in washington. >> great white republican hopes. she offered a sue doe apology. she did not know what great white hope meant or it held negative connotations. less than a month earlier she supported a house resolution to pardon posthumously the first heavyweight champ jack johnson
for acts under theman act. it read in part, whereas the victo jack johnson over the tommy burns prompted the search for the great white hope. her new excuse, no, she did not read the specific resolution. you may recall wally herger of california's second district and his response to this man. >> i want to say i'm a proud right wing terrorist. >> amen, god bless you. there's the great american. >> the so-called great american now said i meant to say extremist. i was defending my right to be extreme but not in the same sense i was going out and doing violence. wally heard extremist. my mistake has called wally a lot of trouble. more noise from texas. drew, wow, almost 205 people. it included a reference to a bloody war and a republican candidate for governor named
debra medina. >> the flag is coming down from over texas. lit not be part of texas anymore. >> i have no clue about the legality of it. all i do know is that's what we as texans need. secession is the answer. >> we are aware that stepping off in to secession may in fact be a bloody war. >> to syndicated columnist and editorial member of the "chicago tribune," clarence page. good evening. >> good evening, keith. >> let me start in california first. we're wading in some deep waters here. but this man calls himself a proud right wing terrorist, a congressman doesn't question that but praises the man. a week later, the man said i didn't mean terrorists, i meant extremist. he said he must have heard extremists, and not terrorist. all this is his fall, not the congressman's. how does that work, exactly? >> well, the gentleman has been caught not listening to what he
says that congressman herger is caught not listening to what the gentleman said either. this is fascinating, keith. barry goldwater said in '64 proclaimed he was proud to be extremist and pursuit of liberty and cost him will 4 states, as i recall, in the pursuit of the presidency. this gentleman wants to say extremist. that wasn't hot enough under the hot lights and he said terrorist. what's odd here is that the congressman kind of smiled and nodded and let the crowd applaud and all that. not the great sight. it comes off well on youtube, doesn't it? >> as does congresswoman jenkins about the great white hope that gets more and more embarrassing. she said, she did not know this was racially charged phrase even though it's been one for a century. she supported the resolution
that not only explained the phrase but went to jack johnson the month before it happened. she didn't read the resolution she supported. this is a terrific sense of coincidences, isn't it? she should play the lottery. >> i wanted to give her a break young people aren't learning history these days. we all know that. but to not be able to remember a month ago what she voted on, the real embarrassment here is that she like a lot of congress pooem doesn't read the legislation that she votes on all the time and she's been caught in this instance. >> that's the good news. if she's lying and covering up something else, the good news is she's not doing her job correctly. >> what's interesting, keith, this kind of reminded me of poor joe biden when he thought he was complimenting barack obama by saying he's clean and articulate and made a -- a little culture gaffe there, if you will, because of the way blacks and whites perceive the word. but really closer to congressman
lynn westmoreland who said sheive they thought the obamas were a couple of the intellectual uppity people and they didn't know until later that it had racial connotations to it. >> too bad that ken burns dvd didn't get out to kansas about jack johnson. that wonderful two-parter about jack johnson two or three year bbefore. >> not to mention james earl ray -- james earl jones movie. i made a gaffe. >> you corrected it immediately and didn't hide saying no, i didn't know the difference between the two men. >> and the guy who gets called clarence thomas by accident once a week, believe me -- >> that's your cross. that's your cross. >> that's right. >> last point, texas. that was a minor republican candidate. not somebody who's going to be running against rick perry and hutchison. speaking of the bloody war, mr. perry didn't attend that rally but he said texas will be able to leave if necessary he's
flirted with this idea of secession. where are the grown-ups? secession would be a bloody war. if texas manages to secede, it would be an instant third world country. >> reminds me of our friend in virginia once told me. the civil war ended 1865. he said that wasn't the end, that was intermission. that's the way a lot of folks think out in the south, especially out in texas. i love texas, i have a lot of readers in texas. and i was educated myself here about 15, 20 years ago as to how much the republic of texas movement is still very much alive in some people's hearts. obviously, rick perry is no dummy. he knows he can touch a lot of heart strings in his pursuit of higher office here by -- by wringing the old republican of texas bell. and you can see the folks gathered out there in the square. what's sad here is, there's kind of an implication here of sour grapes, if you ask me.
it's like, for example, going the way they wanted to with the way the democratic system elected the latest president. now they're talking secession. >> and i'm reminded again of the civil war -- of the civil war southern politician who said of one of the states -- too small for a country, too big for an insane asylum. clarence page, thank you for your time. >> said that about chicago too, keith. >> thank you. >> oh, well, i don't know how to spell -- gar -- are you sure this is how you spell olbermann? a-h -- uh-oh? and the man who last month was rooting for a bin laden attack in this country say it's democrat's who want one. worst persons ahead. rachael at the top of the hour, the grassley cat is out of the bag. he tells constituents he's trying to kill health care reform, not negotiate about it.
big pharma shell is on tv lying about what's in the reform bill. no one is calling on her. a fixed news analyst saying rom emmanuel is hoping for terrorism. and relatings liberalism to cancer cells and calls the cancer cells little, black, black, filthy -- where's he going for that? the voice of the entire political movement. in two shows, he can't spell, can't accurately repeat teddy roosevelt's famous quote, he doesn't prepare his schick. a trip in the mind of glenn beck. don't wear your good shoes. and these days we can't afford to be wasteful. saving minutes... ...saves money. yea.

described seeing cancer cells he saw under a microscope saying a bunch of little orphan annie eyes perfectly round clear circles. little black iridescent globs, almost radiant from within pulsing menace. i ask the question -- do we know where cancer starts? the black filthy cells? the black iridescent blobs, the black cells to a political virus. and those filthy black references, racism. but michael shoiier, ex-cia operative would be the die yeah tribe on the hate-cast all day long. we want an attack, rahm emmanuel wants crisis. he does not care.
for the first time, a sitting president is giving aid and comfort to the enemy psychologically and materially. the president does not care. this is the same lunatic who last month said without anyone reproaching him is the chance for the country right now is for osama bin laden to deploy and detonate a weapon in the united states. it's self-evident you're rooting for terrorism to take place in this country and rooting for terrorist. former american michael shoiier, today's worst person in the world. bicycle, i've missed you.

guise of an election. the repeated insistence that has the president is a marxist. the comfort of today's mythical fund awe shucks is that every day he gives away the truth he's an idiot. if you want to warn the columni columnist, you're not going to jump on a horse and say the brudish are coming. if you tell him it's not about helping people, but eating them. you lose credibility by saying "mr. chambers, don't get on the ship. "to serve man" it's a phone book." and the photographer, pat, and the spelling ability of a third grader. >> i told you were we going to -- we were going to talk about these things. we were going to talk about obama. the left. internationalists, graft, acorn -- style organizations. revolution, and hidden agenda.
ol oligarh -- one letter is missing. why did i select these words? acorn, selects -- they select their words first and tie them together in one word. o oligargh -- the one that we're missing is y. i don't know what we're turning in to. unless you ask y, we're going to transforming in something. ask questions. >> i got a question? don't you rehearse? oligarchy? or did obama steal the letter c? mr. beck came back the next day and tried to bury the reality that the less than 1% of the country who watches or listens to his shows think they're not listening to a wac job.
channeling the inner pee-wee herman, he said everything but i meant to do that. he a all but left out the c on purpose. the c stands for czars. desperation at its worse. the use of the russian dicta to recall term czar for presidential appointee did not begin yesterday. it began with president nixon. an energy czar, william simon. he promptly announced we would be starting daylight savings in april, but in january. and the true era came under czars came under, gosh, ronald reagan. he created drug czar filled continually since 1982. if you're going to insult czars of president nixon and reagan, i'm going to have to challenge you to a duel -- d-u-e-l. it's hard to find out if the 1% who watches that truth teller whose own brain function is
never better than his own. he misquoted shakespeare the oh day. to me, train wreck, to his gullible viewers, golly, he knew about shax pizza. he misquoted theodore roosevelt. yeah, the guy who looks like the mountain. >> we speak without fear while they say it all in fact. walk softly and carry a big stick. that ain't a gun, man. that is the facts. >> but it is. walk softly and carry a big stick -- speak softly, carry a big stick -- whatever, that's the facts. college communications programs don't teach you much about actual broadcasting but i have one professor who had a fulltime job as a general manager in a local radio station. one truth separated the men from the boys. the egotistical good morning world sign-ones, don martin. people watch and listen to radio and tv one person at a time. talk to one person at a time.
