Are we now obligated to follow the moonbat lead and go all apeshitty with media conspiracies about the destruction of the truth and the unfairness of it all?

Nah. Who cares if Scarborough gets suspended or canned?

He can spoon with Olbermann this weekend and share television war stories.

“I apologize to MSNBC and to anyone who has been negatively affected by my actions,” said, adding that after he was made aware of some of the contributions, he called MSNBC president Phil Griffin “and agreed with Phil’s immediate demand of a two-day suspension without pay.”

So whats he doing,,,trying to claim he was unaware that he made the contributions?

maybe they discovered a way to get ratings

Good point. I know I'd be more inclined to watch MsNBC if all they showed was an empty chair for an hour. I mean, I couldn't learn any less.

Smite? Nah! There’s not THAT many dollar-a-day FReepers.

If there were we would not be doing these continuous money-thons.

LOL

Every unpaid suspension helps the bottom line for MSM’s.

Hey, maybe this is going to be the new media Chic, suspended for donating money to left wing political figures.

Searching for polite words to describe my opinion of Joe Scarborough. Sometimes there are no good words, so I will just have to use POS, I am being kind to him.

I bet he voted for Obama!!!!!

The guy says his mother is a fan of Sarah Palin, yet he trashes Sarah quite regularly. The guy is a scum

Just expressing my thoughts and concerns about FR and the usual 'give and take'. No give and take about Romney for sure. Jeez!

We gave and took in 2008. The result, after a lot of research and debate, was that Romney is a lying charlatan. The record is plain as day. Therefore, see tagline...

I was just wondering why Romney was the "pick of the litter' to slur and slander.

One word: Romneycare.

Additionally, it is not slurring and slandering when someone simply speaks the truth about his so-called "moderate" positions.

He's a Massachusetts Liberal, for God's sake! He's the poster boy for RINO's!

And he's also a frontrunner in many polls for the Republican nomination in 2012, and eminently electable by the general populace, I have no doubt.

That's why he's the "pick of the litter" and a target for this conservative site.

I could hold my nose and vote for various "moderate" Republicans, but I simply could NEVER vote for Mitt Romney for President, knowing what I know about Romneycare, and his "liberal" Massachusetts attitudes in general towards guns, etc...

There have been a number of threads this week in which Jim has stated clearly that anyone who is supportive of Romney is going to go. Like the Rudy folks in 2007. You may like this, you might not like it, but FR is Jim’s show.

Resistance is futile, all will be assimilated or eliminated!

Yessir,

And practitioners of hypocrisy, opportunism, and doublespeak can join in the KMA party too. All applicable to Romney of Romneycare. Typical conscience-free pol...the “R” after his name is meaningless to this FReeper.

I know who Mitt Romney is, but who is Jim Robinson exactly?
Freepers traditionally don’t bully well, even among the like minded.

Look, I was not happy to see non-obnoxious Rudy supporters go, many were great freepers. but I don’t make the rules, and decided that I preferred to stay here. That is your decision to make now, unless you want to keep knocking the site owner, in which case he will make it for you. There are quite a number of differences between Johnson and JimRob, including the fact that JimRob gives warnings, has patience in most cases, and is a conservative. If you had posted the things you have said about Jim about Johnson at lgf you would be long gone.

The one guy that works there that isn't a total cretin, they fire.

RINO or not, he was a brave soul to shoulder
even the middle ground with that bunch.

What a crock of sh!t. And what a big phony trying to stand in for the other idiot. They must think we are all stupid as they maneuver through their little fake “got caught” schemes.

Our world is going to hell in a hand basket with this mentality.

God Almighty!
