Skip to comments.Kathleen Parker: I'm 'Slightly to the Right of Center;' Fan of Obama
Posted on 10/01/2010 8:19:50 PM PDT by pissant
On Thursday's Larry King Live, future anchor Kathleen Parker verified her tenuous conservative credentials, as she identified herself as a "conservative," but added, "a pox on everybody's house, as far as I'm concerned." She later confessed that she "would put myself...slightly to the right of center," and that she was "a big fan of Barack Obama as he came into office...I didn't want him to fail."
Anchor Larry King brought on Parker and future co-host Eliot Spitzer of "Client Number Nine" fame during the first half of the 9 pm Eastern hour. Three minutes in, King asked about the format of the show, which begins on October 4. After the two briefly described it, the columnist stated that "Eliot is identified as a Democrat and I'm identified as a conservative." Spitzer replied, "Well, you said Democrat/conservative, not Republican," and the resulting exchange led to Parker revealing how she saw her position politically.

Just right of center? Like Olberman and Matthews are just left of center.
Kathleen you are a liberal and an outcast from amongst conservatives. Get lost bimbo!
Like ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and the NY Slimes, Kathleen Parker is best entirely ignored. Life is too short to waste any of it on her.
These two will soon be standing behind Rick Sanchez in the unemployment line.
Right of what center?
just a tad, right Kathleen?
Is there a reason we’ve never seen Parker on the same TV program with David Brooks? I think they are the same person.
I really don’t think Parker has a clue where she is.
I watched a little bit of them on Larry King last night. She’s so phony she’s completely unwatchable. And for me and my house I prefer Star Parker over this other Parker.
David Brooks with slightly more estrogen.
So does Parker’s contract include a guarantee that she won’t get hit on by her co-host?
Why didn’t that idiot ever do time behind bars? What about the Mann act?
center of 0bama’s you know what.
She said on Larry King that she didn’t write about sex scandals. I remember reading an article where she harped about Brittany Spears. Other than that does anyone recall a single article that she wrote that was even remotely memorable (other than trashedPalin in ‘08 and gooing over Obama)?
They can’t even see the center from where they are!
Well, if you think that worshipping Hitler is a conservative thing to do—and most Liberals accept the Marxist lie that Hitler was on the “right”—then maybe that explains what she means.
Because Obama resembles that national socialist Hitler in quite a number of ways—including racism, narcissism, and love of power.
“didn’t want him to fail”, oh what a subtle dig at Limbaugh. Took me almost four milliseconds to see it, it’s that subtle.
Yep a Conservative with a Capitol C, ubetcha.
Did she want Bush to fail, I wonder?
I saw that...and LOL! She has no clue where “center” is.
Honestly I never heard of her. She is a CNN personality from the beginning. Some nobody.
I would put her at a cocktail party in Georgetown.
Slightly right of center?
She bashes Palin and social conservatives, is pro-gay marriage, pro-choice, praises O’Bummer for being smart, and rarely, if ever, worries about his socialist rampage.
How about leaning to the left?
won't watch, and don't care.....these people are dead to me......LOL
More like a mugwump, to my thinking.
A bird that sits on a fence with its mug on side and its wump on the other...
And when do you plan to put yourself there, Kathleen?
Kathleen Parker, she’s slightly right of center in DC. A town that votes 90% socialist and of course an Obama voter. I attack conservatives.
Center to her is Karl Marx. Or maybe Groucho. She is pretty confused.
“I’m ‘Slightly to the Right of Center”
The center of what? Ignorant liberal...
Oh, I think Barry has done quite a bit to Wall Street. Which is exactly why we still have no recovery and unemployment at 10%.
CNN is desperately trying to promote this show. Who the hell will watch it? Folks will look at it on the guide and say, “Elliot Spitzer? Why does he have a show? And who is this Kathleen Parker? Did he do her too?”
,” but added, “a pox on everybody’s house, as far as I’m concerned.” What did she mean by that statement?
Peggy Noonan II
She has to depend on liberals for her suckcess now.
Kathleen Parker: "[I]t is increasingly clear that Palin is a problem." "Parker ... says something publicly that many of us have thought privately
but lacked the courage to say out loud - Palin should step down:"
"Parker: Romney raised bar on freedoms"
Kathleen Parker: "If Kennedy's speech was an important landmark in American political history,
Romney's was surpassing. With heartfelt humility and poetic eloquence,
he tracked the nation's struggle with and for freedom."
Kathleen, you’re mostly full of crap.
“I didn’t want him to fail.”
That’s because you didn’t know what he was going to do.
I remember watching a clip of Laura Ingrahm positively shredding Parker on Fox News once. Parker was so flustered, so owned by Ingrahm she looked like she was going to cry.
Liberals who pretend to be conservatives will always have a job in the communist, state-controlled media. She’s has no integrity, but she makes a good buck.
Definition: Fill in the blank _ _ _ _ _.
Explains why I don’t read Parker anymore. I started viewing her articles with deep skepticism a few years ago when she declared Hillary Clinton was “well-qualified” to be president. She’s proved my skepticism correct.
There's a tremendous amount of nothingness in all her articles.
