Regarding President Obama’s speech on Guantanamo detainees in 2009: “One of the most radical proposals for defying  the constitution that we have ever heard made to the American people.”

No, Glenn Beck didn’t say it, Rush Limbaugh didn’t say it either, not even that acidic harpy Ann Coulter.

It was said by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on her May 21st show in 2009.  Watch the video below or click here.

I wonder what that Kool-aid tastes like when it comes back up on you. That’s not really fair I suppose. She is standing behind her convictions and that is more than can be said for most on that network.

Interesting side note:  It appears that many links to YouTube posts of this video have been removed due to claims of “copy right violations”. No guarantee that this one will be up for long so here is a link to MSNBC’s transcript of the show.
