Early Morning Swim: Rachel Maddow on the GOP’s Failed Politics of Terror
And so it continues.
On Tuesday, [GOP Chairman Michael] Steele accused the Obama administration of pursuing an inconsistent policy toward terrorism.
Steele said on NBC’s “Today” show the administration is wrong in putting terrorism suspects on trial in civil courts, saying “the public doesn’t view them as having rights in the criminal system.”
The GOP chairman also defended former Vice President Dick Cheney’s harsh criticism of President Barack Obama, saying that he, too, believes Obama tries to avoid directly acknowledging a war on terror.
Good luck with that 2003 playbook, guys. It worked so well for you in ’06 and ’08.
