FREEPER COMMENTS REQUESTED: Is it just me, or is Mary Matalin way off base today with her entire theme for the show (guest hosting for Rush). Now I normally like her work tremendously, but her idea that we should search for "virtue" in government and for "virtuous people" to be in government seems extremely naive.
The only virtue in government is its limit. We will never get a government full of virtuous people. By definition, government is power and virtuous people are not drawn to that. Our Founders knew that. This is why they insisted on LIMITED government. Wake up Mary!
She has to be an idiot to live with Carville.
I heard her talk and said WTF???
Listening to FNC now.
She also said one of her kids is a liberal and the other conservative... so what? is that the info i want to hear from a sub on Rush? WE tune in to hear waht RUSH has to say not what others have to say. That’s why we shut her off. We turn on faithfully every day to hear our Hero...Rush Limbaugh. No one can fill in for Rush...no one!
I couldn’t stand to hear her talk so I turned the radio off so I could focus on the more pleasant sound of my sump pump cycling.
Click MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM Click
If one of her kids is a Lib, (probably the oldest), she FAILED as a parent.
I am not stunned.
they are trying to repair the damage that Romney did....
I tuned out...
Romney is the long lost fraternal twin of Rodham, as in Hillary Rodham Clinton.
She is right in the fact that in order for our system to work it requires a level of what is called “public virtue”. Wikipedia calls it “civic virtue”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civic_virtue
You have to have what you say as safeguards, but without public or civic virtue the system fails.
I wont be listening. Besides being a RINO she is very annoying to listen to, like fingernail's across a chalk board. I didnt like her 20 years ago and I don't like her now.
20 years ago Rush used to actually show up for work (frequently.)
I agree with her, I think. I’m not listening to the show. YOu can’t have scumbags in power. You have to have decent people. You can’t expect to have saints though. You need people with certain skills and that sometimes means you need to make compromises.
Mary is an establishment Republican, a big Mittens supporter.
She is in no way a Conservative.
Didn’t Milton Friedman say something like, ‘we should work toward a system where bad people are forced to do the right thing.’
Her appeal to virtuousness is naive.
Conservatives should NEVER talk like that.
Yep, I stopped listening to her when she married that disgusting POS. One of them is a poser and I’ve always suspected it was her. Carville is always mean, nasty, vicious, and dishonest. I don’t think it’s possible she could live with him and not discuss politics at all. The alternative then is she agrees with him privately but can’t publically since her schtick has been making money off of conservatives.
I lasted about 5 minutes.
somebody in that house is a double agent...
and I do not think it is corporal cueball carville.
Virtue and Gov’t have as much in common as a Haddock and a cowboy hat.
Benjamin Franklin, was perhaps the first International Playboy. The joke at the time was that perhaps he really was the ‘Father of the nation”. No one questions his wisdom, no one questions his value as a statesman - but he made Pres. Clinton look like a choirboy in comparison.
