David Frum: Useful Idiot. But Not That Useful
The Right Sphere ^ | March 3, 2012 | RB

Posted on 03/04/2012 1:49:47 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Ace of Spades already skewered David Frum over his disgusting attacks on Andrew Breitbart after we all learned Andrew had died. The little puke followed up that attack with another snide comment on Twitter.

davidfrum @davidfrum An actual giant of conservative thought, James Q. Wilson, has died today. bo.st/zONXFv Appreciation TK at DailyBeast site 2 Mar 12 ReplyRetweetFavorite

He can’t help himself. You can almost see the jealousy dripping from his keyboard.

Apparently, Frum is trying to stake out a position as the Republican who gets called on by CNN to criticize Republicans. You know, like Meghan McCain but with fewer fans and a lot less likable. A lot less.

Seeking to capitalize on his new role as the male Meghan McCain, he went in on Rush Limbaugh and the Sandra Fluke stuff.

davidfrum @davidfrum We had 2 young women at a dinner party tonight. Both Republican-oriented. Both lost to GOP by events of past week. Thanks Rush. 3 Mar 12 ReplyRetweetFavorite

You see, David Frum wants the GOP to listen to his advice on messaging. He wants to be the go-to-guy on how Republicans should act, so he’s using this anecdotal evidence as proof that Limbaugh’s comments are destroying the GOP. But as Lee Doren noted, this tweet proves that Frum should be kept as far away from any strategy sessions as possible.

Lee Doren @LDoren According to @davidfrum , he was powerless to convince two GOP-leaning women to stick with the GOP. Let's all take his advice on messaging!! 3 Mar 12 ReplyRetweetFavorite

The man who is trying to make the GOP better couldn’t convince two young, allegedly “republican-oriented” – whatever that means, women that the Sandra Fluke astroturf circus wasn’t really a valid reason to vote for Democrats. You can almost picture the conversation: “Man, Limbaugh really turned me off.” Frum: “I know. He’s ruining the GOP. His comments are vastly more important that the disaster Obama has heaped on this country. I wouldn’t blame you for voting Democrat. More brie?”

David Frum’s only claim to fame is that he came up with the term “Axis of Evil” when he was a speechwriter for George W. Bush. Since then, he’s spent his entire life criticizing Republicans. And being ignored by them.

He’s useless.

Isn’t Frum the so-called “campaign manager” who’s lost every election for every candidate he ever managed? I seem to remember Rush saying that...

I didn’t know James Q. Wilson had died. Too bad, even if he was 80. I read his book.

You are thinking of Shrum, not Frum. Bob Shrum has the losingest record of any campaign manager alive. Frum is a Canadian leftist hack masquerading as an American Conservative.

And what were you saying when this little punk was popular and sliming true conservatives like Bob Novak as “unpatriotic”?

Neocon Karma is making Frummy pretty much unemployed. Where were we when he and the Bushbots were riding high?

I've met and liked Bob Novak. Was your comment addressed to me or the author?

I meant “Mr. Danielle Crittenden”. Frum is such a drama queen that I was sure he must have married
Danielle Steel ;-)

Bob Novak was a great, true conservative patriot and a great journalist. Frum slimed him because he's a sniveling little girlyman. Like 90% of what passes as the "conservative" press nowadays.

I agree. Why are we having an argument?

I am not even sure we can fully credit him with the "axis of evil" phrase. I believe he orginally wrote "axis of hatred" and Bush changed it to the the stronger "axis of evil."

I'm sorry. I just meant that FReepers in general loved Frummy, the neocons, and Bushbots back in the day. I didn't mean to address you, specifically.

Please take no offense. I enjoyed your post!

Frum’s squawking?

Yuck—looks like the neocons who control US foreign policy (all four of them) had their weekly foreign policy strategy meeting at the elite Four Seasons.

Friggin’ suckers are agitiating again.

Remember-———the neos chief obsession is kicking Repub social conservatives to the curb-—neos abhor conservatives. And neos are the ones behind GWB’s cockamamie plan to push for amnesty for illegals.

Looks like neo bossman Richard Perle must need more US billions to sink into his Iraqi oil company-—the one he financed with war profits.

You can be sure that’s the agit prop behind a possible Iranian war.....neocon war profiteering.

Americans are paying the price at the pump-—so that the neos can pocket billions.

KEEP IN MIND By US law, one condition for Israel getting trillions (yes, trillions) in US foreign aid is that Israel must share with the US the vast amounts of intelligence information they gather in the Mideast. Unfortunately, 911 happened with nary a clue----even though 911 was plotted for years in Israel's backyard by Israel's close neighbors.

And isn't it nice that a tiny country like Israel--- surrounded by enemies---has zillions of dollars to conduct these costly activities---as US citizens struggle to survive? Your tax dollars at work.

(1) The US stupidly gave Pakistan billions in the wake of 911----the country that was openly harboring Bin Laden in their midst. Despite all its advanced technology, Israel did not know Bin Laden was in their neighborhood?

(2) TURKEY received $21 billion economic/military US foreign aid....thanks to neocons. The US Dept of state ----duped by neocons----reported Dec 2011 that as part of their stupid cooperative effort to further Turkish economic and military self-reliance, the United States stupidly loaned and granted Turkey more than $7 billion in economic aid and more than $14 billion in military assistance over several years......So much for "peace"....Turkey is now getting ready to acquire nuclear weapons. Despite all its advanced technology, Israel did not know this?

(3) Neocons duped the US into pouring trillions into Afghanistan.....the most corrupt area on the globe. The Bank of Kabul is engaged in massive fraud---the bank where the US deposits billions of US tax dollars to run the war----if you are "connected" you can withdraw billions with no responsibility to pay it back. Afghan Pres Karzhai was seen loading billions of US dollars to transport out of the country. Despite all its advanced technology, Israel did not know this?

=============================================

SUMMATION US citizens are being extorted at the pump as the US leaves Iraq with no promise of oil (having spent trillions of US dollars there, leaving rivers of young US blood). Yet, according to the WSJ, conniving neocons are starting their own oil company in Iraq. The cost is immense----facilitated by n/c Richard Perle's war profiteering. Your tax dollars at work.

A war in Iran seems to be on the neocon wish list---let the neocon war profiteering begin.

One word spoken half in jest from one conservative talk show host and these women change parties?

Well, it’s too bad. Not as bad as losing Thomas Sowell would be, but still unfortunate.

Frum's a neo-pansy canadian girlie-man. He can go pound sand. He's as relevant as a Pet Rock.

And for all the damage and illegal 'carp' Perle's pulled he should 'have a meeting' with Seal Team 6. Or see how a predator drone works - up close and personal. GITMO is too good for him.

good thing I missed this yesterday afternoon. I was steaming mad and REALLY would have let loose with invectives seeing Perle's name.

Not to worry——Frum’s plague of sexually tranmitted diseases will exponentially increase-——Frum’s getting it on with Sandra Flucke as we type.

After a romp with Flucke, Frum’s crotch will be do diseased, he’ll need to wear a “Dont Touch Me” sign.

Frum’ll have to sit out those strategy sessions where the neos plot US foreign policy-——getting into The Four Seasons will be a problem for diseased-ridden Frum(/snix).
