How about just saying he is totally insensitive to the sacrifices made by American service people.

That the NICEST way I can put it. I'd like to say more but I'd get kicked off this message board for totally improper language.

As usual the left takes things out of context in order to trash someone from the right.

Olbermann Cherry-picks AP to Accuse Alan Simpson of Being Anti-Veterans | OutloudOpinion

"Olbermann Cherry-picks AP to Accuse Alan Simpson of Being Anti-Veterans"
"Much as he often does as one of the nation's least professional journalists, Olbermann on MSNBC's "Countdown" took a grand total of two sentences from Baker's article to convict Simpson of attacking Americans that proudly served their country".

"
To begin with, Olbermann dishonestly juxtaposed the two Simpson quotes to make them appear that the second sentence came before the first and therefore was related.
This was not the case, as "It's the kind of thing that's just driving us to this $1 trillion, 400 billion deficit this year" came at the very end of the AP piece nowhere near the other quote.
Nice job, Keith.
But most importantly, Olbermann - as he so often does - completely ignored the context of Simpson's comments."

"
As such, in Simpson's view, "the kind of thing that's just driving us to this $1 trillion, $400 billion deficit this year" is the faulty accounting the VA used to underestimate by 60 percent the cost of covering these new ailments.
He was not as Olbermann stated blaming this on veterans.
Frankly, this entire report was utter nonsense, and that a cable news network allows one of its prime time hosts to employ such tactics should be offensive to Americans on both sides of the aisle".
