Listening to the Diane Rehm Show Today

made me want to RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE!!!!!!
Looking Back at the Bush White House

Assessing President George W. Bush's aims and accomplishments after eight years, and what some top advisers now say about the Bush White House.


Carl Cannon, Washington bureau chief, "Reader's Digest;" co-author with his father and Reagan biographer Lou Cannon of "Reagan's Disciple: George W. Bush's Troubled Quest for a Presidential Legacy"

Todd Purdum, national editor, "Vanity Fair"

Byron York, White House correspondent for "National Review" and author of "The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy"
(Hint: I didn't hear much about the incredible damage Bush has wraught in his 8-year reign of destruction.)


"As Charles [Krauthammer] said, the country was kept safe ever since 9/11. There has not been an attack. These people did what they did under orders and with patriotism. And Obama should make it clear that none of them is going to be held to account for what they did."

"Asserting FDR "waged ... a jihad against private enterprise," Hume falsely claimed "everybody agrees ... that the New Deal failed""

I listened as long as I could bear it: I tuned out after Byron York's BS.

One of the guests said that bush wanted every child to have a good education and that spending on education increased 60% during bush's time in office.

What he didn't say is that there is no evidence that education improved as the result of that increased spending. If he were honest he would have said that testing co's certainly benefited and that one of the bush brothers (who owns chunk of a testing co.)

One could go line by line (lie by lie) through each Spin point made by Ms. Rehm's guest and show how
the truth is the opposite what they all sang.

Pitiful, predictably dishonest dialogue disguised as informed opinion, from the get-go to the "HEY, let me go".

From Rehm to York. What in the world possessed you to want to listen to the Diane Rehm show in the first place? I figured her out
within five minutes on the very first time I ever heard of "that woman". With such an awful voice to have to listen to, the least she should do for anyone strong enough to bear the pain of hearing her is to try a little honesty.

Is there any substantive difference between her and Tavis Smiley? Isn't one of their kind enough?

The reason I listen to it is because it is often on the radio when I drive to work, and it is a good way to hear mainstream new opinions, and it is usually interesting enough to start with-- until it inevitably drives me to rage.

There's no reason to go out of the way top listen to it, though. For sure.
