Like Rush Limbaugh & Glenn Beck, he's an entertainer. Who wants to listen to somebody sit down and spew facts? Nobody. They want someone who will be sarcastic, snarky, and echo their own views.

I watched a few minutes of his show last nite and he was almost in outer space he was so far out there. And he had such a vapid, vacuous woman on to discuss the case with. The guy is without shame or credibility. And that goes for Maddow and Matthews as well. They make Glenn Beck look like Edward R. Murrow.

Don't let Olby or these Lefties fool you. They don't give a damn who dropped the case. Even if they finally admit they are wrong they ll just come up with some other bs excuse to defend Holder and Obama. They don't give a damn about what the NBP do or say. They'd rather make up lies and distort truth, especially about the Tea Party people.

I'd love for you to show some flat out lies, truth twisting, money earning schemes, and propaganda from Olbermann, Maddow, and Matthews. Heck, you can have the entire MSNBC network. The only counter will be with beck himself... Let's see how this turns out,..

In the news, and verifiable.

Why are Obama supporters so gullible that they immediately believe whatever the propagandists spew without checking the info?

Bush DOJ decided New Black Panthers no major case | Cynthia Tucker

# Adams has admitted that he does not have first-hand knowledge of the events, conversations, and decisions that he is citing to advance his accusations;
# The Bush administration’s Justice Department — not the Obama administration — made the decision not to pursue criminal charges against members of the New Black Panther Party for alleged voter intimidation at a polling center in Philadelphia in 2008;
# The Obama administration successfully obtained default judgment against Samir Shabazz, a member of the New Black Panther Party carrying a nightstick outside the Philadelphia polling center on Election Day 2008;
# The Bush administration DOJ chose not to pursue similar charges against members of the Minutemen, one of whom allegedly carried a weapon while harassing Hispanic voters in Arizona in 2006;
# No voters have come forward to claim that they were intimidated from voting on account of the New Black Panthers standing outside the polling center in 2008;

Can you read? Do you know the difference between DOWNGRADED and DISMISSED? I don't think you do. You seem very clueless because you listen to MSNBC. The Bush Admin DOWNGRADED the case from criminal to civil, that's all they did. The Obama Admin dismissed it in mid/late 2009.

Clueless again eh? You really need to dump your sources, they are not being honest with you. There have been a few voters that made public statements about being intimidated.
