Moulitsas v Tancredo - Fighting for the Soul of America

Here's MSNBC's David Schuster asking ex-GOP Congressman Tom Tancredo some tough questions. Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos totally upsets Tancredo's apple cart while presenting his point of view.

I think, in his elitist mind, Tom Tancredo fancies himself a King facing down a peasant like Markos Moulitsas. I don't feel one bit sorry for Mr. Tancredo here. When faced with an uncomfortable truth about the past that may, in his mind, hurt his future political power and standing, Tancredo runs away as if he is above the truth. In the 18th Century, that kind of elitism is what we fought against when we fought for and became a nation of our common hopes. Over the past two decades, there has been so much incivility that has been LED and PROMOTED by the likes of the right wing, including current House minority leader John Boehner, ex-Congressman and 2008 Presidential candidate Tancredo, and company - and they are complete hypocrites and elitists to think that the truth can't rightly be presented right back to them after so many years of following SCOTUS Clarence Thomas' advice that civility often must be"left behind in the pursuit of civic virtue."

This is a fight for the soul of America and we must not fear our necessary honesty if it means a threat to the destruction of the virtues we personally cherish.
