Ronald Kessler does love to bash liberals, and alleged bad behavior by Keith Olbermann has somehow inspired Kessler to attack Democratic presidents like Jimmy Carter. From Kessler's April 9 column:
Democrats profess to be for uplifting the downtrodden. But as Current TV’s firing of left-leaning Keith Olbermann demonstrates, when it comes to treating the less fortunate with respect, Democrats may be the worst offenders.
Among the complaints by Al Gore’s Current TV was that the anchor went through eight different car pick-up services, often complaining that the drivers “smelled” or that they “talked to him.”
As outlined in my book “In the President’s Secret Service: Behind the Scenes with Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect,” Democratic presidents who claim like Olbermann to be for the little guy often are the nastiest with staff and Secret Service agents. Jimmy Carter — codenamed Deacon — was a prime example.
After taking shots at Bill Clinton and Lyndon Johnson for allegedly being rude while liberal, however, Kessler is forced to admit the flaw in his partisan theory by admitting that Secret Service agents "say both Barack Obama — codenamed Renegade — and Michelle Obama treat them with respect."
