Skip to comments.Could someone tell Mark Levin, not to be Debbie Downer.
Posted on 08/29/2012 4:54:52 PM PDT by DallasBiff
I guess Mark is mad that Romney is not a puritanical Reaganite.
What’s a puritanical Reaganite?
Puritanical? Sheesh, I’d be happy if he were just a Republican.
Yeah — what’s up with that?
I mean, we’ve had Rush, Levin, and Savage moaning and groaning about the convention all week -— flat out mocking it.
Playing the victim is for liberals. Talk radio has become a downer.
I’m definitely not the establishment type, but really, do we want to win this thing or not?
Stating the truth is not whining.
Reagan was NOT fiscally conservative.
Mark is undergoing sex change operation now?
I guess his policies didn’t grow the economy then - got it.
Does it bother you that not everyone supports Mr. Romney’s
RomneyCARE, global warming hoax love, Death panels,
his love for TARP and taxes, his backstabbing
of conservatives, and his other moronic
endless RINO agendae?
Resistance to THOSE anti-conservative issues
makes one a CONSERVATIVE (unlike Mr. RomneyCARE).
I'm not sure it makes any difference if Romney or Obama gets in. The lesser of two evils is still evil.
Reagan would be shredded as a candidate by many FReepers today.
Without a doubt.
I just get tired of the idelogical wars.
Saw 2016 this weekend, and saw the real threat, Obama.
Let him vent. It’s what he does for a living after all
He’s hardly the only one. Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Michelle Malkin and others are plenty unhappy with the turn of events.
Darn straight. If he could only be as orthodox a conservative as he is a Mormon.
Levin is speaking out of frustration.
Romney is just Obama-lite. Even if he wins nothing is gonna change dramatically.
You really think Romney is going to stop the fiscal car from going over the cliff? Romney will simply take his foot off the pedal that is firmly placed against the metal floor allowing for a reprieve , merely delaying the inevitable.
The inevitable? 16 Trillioin in Public debt taht excludes Intra-Govt. debt. 150 Trillion in unfunded mandates and you see this can only end in one of 3 ways:
1. USA default.
2. All un-constitutional socialist programs ended ( medicade/care/ SS/Obamacare/FDA/FHA/Dept. of Ed.,etc.)
3. Money printing to pay off all debts and socialist liabilities ( hyper-mega-inflation).
So yeah, Mark Levin is really expressing his frustrations at the whole Beast Machine without coming right out and saying it.
Reagan promised he would end the Departments of Energy and Education while also balancing the budget.
He didn’t do any of those 3 things.
Instead he created a whole new federal department (Veterans Affairs) and grew the federal workforce by 200,000.
He gave amnesty to 3 million illegal aliens in 1986.
The national debt TRIPLED in size.
Tonight’s convention is awesome. I choose to watch it uninterrupted and minus stupid commentary. CSPAN is the best.
I wonder what they think of Rand Paul supporting Romney/Ryan.
I agree. I don’t understand the talk radio hosts being so negative. Yesterday I heard one brilliant speech after another. Anne Romney was spectacular. So was Chris Christie. I loved Ted Cruz, Artur Davis, Nikki Haley, Mary Fallin (Gov of Oklahoma), and so many more. It was a wonderful day to celebrate.
Good grief, radio hosts. GET A GRIP. The glass is not always half empty. Sometimes it’s half full.
I guess Mark is more concerned with his “intellectual” influence with a future administration he has burned bridges with, than actually getting rid of Obama electorally. “
He is a radio host, not a press secretary. If he puts on the pom poms for Romney, he wouldn’t be taken seriously as he would have to be a phony, and everyone would know it.
Ifyou don’t like his analysis you can turn on the Gamma level Hannity show.
Pssstt.....we already lost.
And sometimes it's just broken, like now.
“Reagan promised he would end the Departments of Energy and Education while also balancing the budget.
The national debt TRIPLED in size.”
Besides having a Dem House, Reagan had priorities
#1 Rebuild military and win Cold War
#2 Implement Kemp-Roth tax cuts
Reagan had also been burned on spending cuts. His 1976 plan of a $90 billion budget cut was enough to cost him FL in ‘76, and hence the nomination. From that point on he was willing to go with tax cuts, accept bigger deficits, and starve the beast. Worked well until Obama managed to spend stratospherically anyway.
“Reagan was NOT fiscally conservative.”
Outside of military spending,Reagan was fiscally conservative. The Dem Congress he was stuck with was not. They were the ones that were doing all the unrestrained spending he was stuck with. He did offset their prolific spending raising revenues via the growth that was engendered by his tax cuts.And even his increased military spending did eventually pay off with peace dividends when the USSR fell.
Romney is a piece of crap that noone came swollow.
Well, that may be, but there’s no sense in pretending that Romney is anything other than what he is. A big government statist. Better keep your guard up. He’s already preaching about RomneyCare again.
Ok I get. Reagan was a scab who did nothing for the country.
That whole soviet thing was a ruse.
I’m glad Mark has the intellectual honesty to call things as they are. I don’t want to hear fantasies about how wonderfully and severely conservative our candidate is, and what a bunch of peaches belong to the GOP elite.
Levin is supporting and will vote for Romney. He, like most us, doesn't think the world of Willard - but we are going to vote for him. Getting rid of Obama is job number one.
I just want Obama out. Period.
Nobody wins in November. Best we can hope for is Obama loses.
That I don't know, but I am assuming, to you, that Paul Ryan has been assimilated into the RINO Borg, like Cheney was assimilated into the Bush Borg.
It is YOUR choice.
Mr. RomneyCARE was carefully selected by the MSM
and the GOPe because he is NOT conservative
and because HE will continue Obama’s policies.
So what is it exactly, you are ‘getting rid of”?
And yet they are all supporting and voting for Willard. And the closer to the election we get, the more vocal each and every one of them will be in their support. Not because they like Mitt, few real conservatives actually do, rather it's because removing Obama from the White House is an absolute necessity at this point.
To the victor..... Romney won, we lost. But Romney is doing what a leader must do, he is exerting and consolidating power. I’m way to the right of Romney but my father taught me a long time ago that my tantrums would be met by a crisp whack if I acted out after losing. Play harder next time was the lesson. At 60 I still follow that admonition. Or I duck when I don’t. Reflexive.
To be honest...they weren’t his policies.
They were David Stockman’s.
Reagan signed on to them because they WORK.
You might find this enlightening.
Well, Ryan has already given up his budget and is deferring to Romney. There goes any hope for tea party ideas from the White House. Romney is a Keynesian who believes more stimulus spending will be necessary to save our free-economy. Free-economy saved by big government? Now there’s an oxymoron for you. Mostly moron. And more like a donkey than an ox. Don’t let your guard down.
He won’t hurt the military.
He won’t bow to the robed enemy.
He won’t abandon Israel in her hour of need.
Oh.....he doesn’t eat dogs, either.
David Stockman has admitted that Reaganomics was a failure.
The romney suckfest is getting so tired.Pissing off the TEAPARTY folks is no way to win an election.
A fact that is lost on more than a few posters here on FR.
I really hate to quote Jesse Jackson, but I will not give up hope on Paul Ryan.
I was a young man then, and made TONS of money. Just TONS.
Stockman suddenly got put on my Benedict Arnold Shit List for that column. I didn’t know that. Thanks.
We get it buddy,you voted for carter and then mondull.
You might find this enlightening.
Sadly, Jim, he is -- in the current manifestation of that terribly broken party, that is.
Some people are giving the GOP and Romney the rope to hang them with. This is why we have corrupt politicans; people won’t call them out when their wrong-just like the democrats. No one should complain about democrats when republicans act just like them.
