  •  That is a lot of assuming there. (12+ / 0-)

    So you've heard/read every statement that Olbermann made about Bush?  It strikes me that Olbermann WOULD be someone who would tell anyone what to say.  

    But let's go with that assumption that he never "told" Bush what to say.  Could it also be that Olbermann feels more aligned with Obama - and thus feels more comfortable or even more entitled to tell him what he should say?  Could his coment have been more along the line of "Hey!  You're on MY side... here's what you SHOULD be saying!"

    Thinking of my own interaction with people.  I am probably 1000 times more likely to tell a friend what they should say than someone who I don't feel aligned with or who I don't feel I know.

    And isn't your objection just one small step away?  Isn't criticism merely saying what you think someone should or should not do/say?  Does that mean that any criticism is racist if the two parties are not of the same ethnic background?  And isn't thinking along those lines more likely to perpetrate separation of peoples than a bringing together?

    Just a different way of seeing things.
