"Obama's Business" (with video)


MSNBC-The Last Word (Chris Hayes), video (17:02).

Howie P.S.: Adam Green, Roger Hodge and Ari Berman discuss ObamaWorld post-"shellacking" with Chris Hayes. H/t to Digby who comments
I watch a lot of cable news (so you don't have to) and have heard so much conventional wisdom by now that I can recite entire exchanges without even turning the sound on. It's always the same people, saying the same things.

That's why today I'm thankful for Chris Hayes, who does consistently unexpected and interesting work both in print and on television. Filling in for Lawrence O'Donnell last night, he hosted a segment that made me come in from the kitchen while I was preparing dinner, sit down and pay attention. It was an extended analysis of the Obama administration from a perspective you rarely see fully aired on television(although those of us who read blogs are familiar with it.)

Thanks Chris, for the most interesting panel discussion I've seen on cable in quite some time.

Agreed. This was one of the most memorable exchanges on TV in a long time. I am so happy to see these bright fresh new faces that are bringing so much honesty to the discussion - Chris Hayes, Ari Berman, Adam Green, Matt Taibbi, Cenk Uygur. Did you read Griftopia by Taibbi. That really goes to the heart of the matter I feel by exposing the true cause of America's decline - the obesession with Ayn Rand, the evil high priestess of shallow selfishness. BTW I am from Seattle too (adoptive home town). Look forward to following you here ad you can follow me @greensbetter or my blog livegreenseegreen.blogspot.com (though I am not active as you are on blog yet)
