In response to MSNBC’s Krystal Ball Thinks That’s Exactly Right:
Yes, Krystal Ball believes progressives are always right by virtue of the fact that they are progressive. Remember her rationale for supporting Obama’s drone policy even though she wouldn’t support it if it were a Republican White House?
MSNBC’s co-host of The Cycle, Krystal Ball, took on the notion circulating in the media that liberal supporters of President Barack Obama are engaging in hypocrisy when they defend the executive’s authority to execute drone strikes on Americans overseas. Some claim that they would never support this power if the president were a Republican. Ball agreed with this point, conceding that she would not support President George W. Bush having this authority. However, she said that Obama is a “fundamentally responsible actor” while Bush regularly “displayed extraordinarily lapses in judgment.”
Now that is amazing.
