This was supposed to be a discussion on Obama’s Immigration proposal.

Republicans, Conservatives even Moderates of the type of Juan Williams are retarded for going on any show on MSNBC.

Every show is radical America haters bashing America, the tea party, and basically everything I stand for.

Hopefully Comcast will dump the network when they realize no one watches them.

It’s just Americans crossing into Pakistan to take on the jobs the Pakis don’t want to do.

Tancredo got what he deserved. If he is so starved for attention that he has to hit PMSLSD to be seen, this is the treatment he will receive. Let's all remember where this radical leftist clown Bashir got his stardom. Did anyone expect a sane interview from him?

Stupid violent Libs!!
Because we despise the Marxist/Muslim usurper, doesn’t mean we want him assinated.
We want him frog marched out of our White House in chains to spend the rest of his miserable life in prison.

I think Tancredo handled himself very well, not just against the ridiculous headline question, but against all the ridiculous jibes of this ridiculous leftist media tool. The fact is, Tancredo is in the top 10% of conservatives in terms of being able to articulate his positions and being able to hold his own in any argument or discussion. I was disappointed he did so poorly in 2008 and don’t really understand it.

I think he should have been a much stronger contender. I’m sure there are many here willing to tell me why he wasn’t. Why wasn’t he?

My response would have been, “Are you drunk or insane? It has to be one of those two options.” Libs like Bashir equate any criticism of Obama to either racism or a violent threat. Dumbazz!

I want Barry to get the JFK martyr treatment for the rest of my life even less than I wanted Bubba to. And I really, really didn’t want Bubba to.

Tancredo is the only one with sane ideas about the muzzies and immigration. Insane PC prevalent in the U.S will prevent him from ever getting anywhere.

Msnbc is obama’s propaganda machine. When the propped up economy collapses I hope their jobs, and their portfolios and their healthcare is the first to go. I would love nothing more than to see everyone on that network on the street with a tin cup.

Good answer but it would have been bleeped out. How about,

“Don’t judge me by the way you think of your political opponents.”

Only those on the Left think that about their political opponents. You see it in their signs, movies and even art. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

Osama bin Obama is just an asterisk who will go down as the greatest scam-artist in history.

Martin Bashir is a Brit. His parents were from India. Although his parents were Muslims, he claims to be a 'committed Christian'. I think he is a committed anti-American, left-wing tool. The vicious and hateful contempt leftists have for anyone who opposes their Marxist ideology and socialist agenda knows no limits. This Bashir person on MSNBC is outrageous with that idiotic 'question' (statement, really) to Tom Tancredo. I agree that no one, absolutely no one on the right, even so-called moderates (such as Governor Mitch Daniels) should ever again agree to appear on any MSNBC news program for any reason as a protest to this ridiculous attempt to make Tancredo's immigration policies akin to wanting Obama assassinated. Talk about 'projection'! Unfortunately, we all know full well that many Republicans will agree to appear on various MSNBC news shows to gain publicity, but they are fools for doing so. The left fallaciously whines about Fox News being a 'Republican' outlet but MSNBC goes beyond being a Democrat mouthpiece and has become a blatantly Marxist/socialist haven that is openly hostile to anyone they consider on the political right. I hope they fail, soon.

From your info about him it would seem that if Bashir moved back to the UK he might not survive long. The radical muzzies there would want to send a message about conversion to the faithful.

I’ve always liked Tancredo and felt he was a strong solid individual. Don’t understand why he gets flamed on here.

I thought he did just fine. I was impressed by his casual attire which sorta said f*** you and his almost bored demeanor before the creep with the phoney accent smeared him.

When I was growing up in the late 60s, it was considered a brave act for someone brutally insulted on a talk show to rip off his microphone, sometimes pour a bottle of water over the head of the host and stalk off the set. When are guests - guests, for God’s sake! - going to either refuse to go on MSNBC or walk off after such a question?
