Are we a Democracy, or a Circus? Health care is not a Commodity, but a Right. Moyer’s Solution: TPM.

Ah, so comforting to listen to a voice of reason in these tempestuous times. Though I can’t fully agree with his conclusion: every time we’ve told Obama he was “too nice” before (against Hillary, or McCain), he came back and trumped us all, fans and haters alike.

You can also watch Mr. Moyers’ recent interview on Bill Maher by clicking ‘videos’ here.

A fun look back (click here for two more videos in the series, re McCain as Mr. T, and the Empire Strikes Barack):

    Waylon, thank you for adding this most excellent perspective. Moyers is now the elder statesman of American journalism for sure since we've lost Cronkite.

  2. […] kind of liberal commentator is Bill Moyers, who’s fair and gentle. Or Jon Stewart, who’s fair, caring and cuttingly funny. […]
