Pollster Frank Luntz: “Michele Bachmann is Glenn Close From Fatal Attraction.”...Rick Perry is...
Red State ^ | January 10, 2012 | constitutional

"Michele Bachmann is Glenn Close From Fatal Attraction"

Franky Boy was caught on camera.

“Rick Perry is George Bush without the intellect.”

And then, once he was caught and realized there were cameras, he gives a great little remark to the guy that was recording it:

“Take your suit and go. This is a private conversation!”

Something tells me these two opinions–as well as the ego– are quite common at Faux News.

Sean Hannity - who often sends listeners to Frank Luntz (with the ferret on his head) and they complain to Sean how vicious he is. In fact, Luntz has taken a hit in recruiting people because of this.

Michele Bachmann is Glenn Close! Is this guy gay or what?

The Pillsbury Dough Boy holds court and gets caught on camera. What a joke Luntz is.

Those that can, run for office. Those that can’t, are pollsters.

But I’m sure his polls and analysis are stripped of any preconception or bias, yes?

In 08 Luntz was caught bringing in some of the same pro Romney people for his focus groups in widely distant areas of the country.

Frank Luntz is a chubby little self important twit. He can think he exposes everybody elses BS yet he thinks nobody know’s he is bald with that hardly presentable hairpiece.

He is the absolute poster child for the term “tool”.

I formed an aversion to that guy upon first seeing him on television; much as I did upon seeing Willard for the first time.

I haven’t trusted or watched him for a while. This only confirms what I had suspected. I have gone from don’t trust to really, really don’t like. I will never watch him again, ever.

OHHHHHHHH, to be SUUURE!

I’m so glad to know about this little event especially after all his wailing - in his very calm way, of course - about personal attacks and polarization in the debates. He’s been SO on my nerves.

What a calm, soft spoken FRAUD. :-D

“Sean Hannity really promotes Luntz.”

Just one more reason for me to be glad I turned Hannity off.

“You’re a great American!”
“I was there in 1994 the night you took over, Newt”
And that DAMN FOOTBALL!

I never took Frank Luntz all that seriously and these days, seeing he’s shilling for Romney and is a propagandist-for-hire, masquerading as a pollster, I ignore his frequent appearances on Fox News which is pretty easy to do because I don’t watch Hannity.

I don’t listen when Luntz come on any program. I don’t trust him and now I know why. In fact, I turn off Fox News and tune into Fox Business which is at least talking about important news more often than the “make or break caucus/primary of the day”.

I’ve always heard of this for years. Luntz is both diva and bully at the same time. An insightful sweet talker one minute, a total jerk the next. Kind of like comedian George Lopez...nice on camera, a real b***ch off camera.

Luntz’s know-it-all persona is getting old (like Karl Rove and Dick Morris). After a while, it comes off as an act.

I've been wondering why fox pushes him as an unbiased pollster.
I don't like him and change the channel whenever they put him on.

Those are definitely things he shouldn't have said and shouldn't have been recorded saying.

But the thing about these guys is they gravitate towards candidates they think are winners -- and have contempt for those they regard as losers.

It's not really an ideological bias.

If Luntz thought Perry or Bachmann was a great candidate with real potential to win, he'd be speaking differently about them, even if the candidates' ideological positions stayed exactly what they are.

Well he his no more sarcastic than I have been ( i.e. Ron Paul is Jack Kervorkian without the drip bag) but watching the whole video he does come across as a cross between being pompous and a worm.

His claim to fame was calling the 94' win, and his book on using the right words.

He should have read his own book before this "private" conversation...

I think he does some of the most interesting segments on FOX News. I haven’t noticed him being biased for Romney. He’s been very friendly to Newt from what I saw. He is most definitely biased towards Republicans or is a Republican, he has shown the “tell” on that often enough. People should be allowed to do Jay Leno-style jokes in private without being judged negatively. I’m not threatened by confident, smart people so I never have reason to use the term “know-it-all.” If someone’s stupid or wrong, I just call them stupid or wrong.

Thanks very much for posting. I’ve always been suspicious of Luntz. He did a good job airing/moderating the Thanksgiving weekend internet only candidates debate. My estimation of him and all the candidates (Romney wasn’t there)went up afterwards. Now, he nosedives to a record low, where I could care less if I ever see the creep again. It seems as if everything is a scam run by scumbags and socialists.

I am so angry I could chew nails. All day long, FOX News and Radio Stations have complained about how poor Romney is being treated by Gingrich and Perry. Hypocrits! The way Romney trashed Palin last election and how he using his minions to trash the other candidates this time around and pretending he’s clean, puke. I always figured if Romney was to win the nomination, I would hold my nose and vote for him. Not now. Not ever.
