Moore and Maddow Discuss Capitalism, The Stupak Dozen and More

I really enjoyed this segment from "The Rachel Maddow Show" when Oscar award winning documentary filmmaker Michael Moore joined Rachel to talk about a variety of issues upon the DVD release of his latest documentary, Capitalism: A Love Story.  One of the things they discussed was Moore's congressman Bart Stupak (D-MI) flexing his anti-abortion muscles, his continuing deception of his membership with the C Street Family and who exactly was paying his rent since the $600 he claimed at that address was waaay below fair market value. If anyone ever thought Rachel only goes after Republicans, they need to watch several episodes of her reporting about some questionable antics of this Stupak dude! Obviously they also discussed Moore's latest movie, touching on how the Republicans want to continue the proven failed policies of the very recent past. It really is amazing that the near collapse of the economy was directly related to the lack of rules and regulations in place...which still has not been addressed, even now with the Democrats in charge...which was a large reason they got sent there in huge numbers, but most of them don't seem to get it. I also had to chuckle when Moore did an imitation of the wimpy Democrats because I've been saying everything that he did for 14 months, and in fact have done a near identical imitation of them! You really have to wonder what it is that elected Democrats lack that Republicans have waaay too much of. Why can't Dems assert the majority status that they were elected to? It irritates me that they still haven't figured out that they're going to get slaughtered if they continue to act like wimps to please conservatives which still has no upside for them!
