While fielding questions about his lawsuit against the Obama Administration for the U.S. military involvement in Libya, Brooke asked him an essentially rhetorical question of why he calls it a “war” when, at present, the U.S. doesn’t have a large set of ground soldiers there. “That’s a silly question,” Kucinich angrily responded, and which completely lost any chance of this blogger’s positive mention of Kucinich in this matter. “If it looks like a war, it’s a war” he continued.
Regardless of the situation, right or wrong, a U.S. Congressman or Congresswoman should always conduct themselves in a way that reflects the behavior of a gentleman or a lady. Instead, Kucinich came off like a debate thug and a woman-hating know-it-all. The way he looked at Baldwin – the sheer hostility he showed – was totally classless and completely out of line.
Soon, a video of this will surface; Kucinich should apologize to Baldwin for his shameful behavior. Baldwin was just doing her job, and this corner would bet that had a male CNN anchor asked the question, Mr. Kucinich would not have treated him that way.
