Roger Ebert 'disappointed' by latest polls
Politico ^ | 10/11/12 | KEVIN ROBILLARD

Posted on 10/11/2012 11:03:34 AM PDT by Snuph

Film critic Roger Ebert is disappointed in you, America.

"A depression has descended upon me. I look at the blank screen, and those are the words that come into my mind," Ebert wrote Wednesday. "I do not believe for a second that Mitt Romney will win the election. I do believe that at this moment he is tied, 50-50, in various national polls. Many of my fellow Americans have at least temporarily disappointed me."

How can you “not for a minute” believe that someone has a chance to win a contest that is currently tied 50-50?

Guess they don’t teach logic at film critic school.

And when Romney wins, Ebert will be moaning, “How could this have happened? Absolutely nobody I know would have voted for him.”

I have been harrassing Roger Ebert (among other liberal celebrity meatheads) on Twitter and Facebook for supporting Obama, for months now. I am sure he is sick and tired of me by now!

If Roger Ebert gives a movie five starts, you know it’s a lousy, liberal love-fest, and the hero is probably gay.

My concern is the turnout on election day will be so huge that polling places will run out of ballots.

Kind of like Chick fil A restaurants running out of chicken.

More Liberal hysterics. They are past masters of both self-delusion and denial.

Reality is an alien concept to them!

Since we're sort of discussing movies..

The other day, someone on NationalReviewOnline posted this review of Taken2

Roger, your fellow Americans spent their hard-earned cash to go to movies, allowing you the tremendous opportunity to make a living (I would guess a substantial living) watching movies and giving us your opinion about them. Many of those same people have had their lives turned upside down by the administration you support. Further, their core values are often mocked by the Hollywood elite you call your friends. Do you care? Doesn't sound like it. Sounds like you, like most of your liberal friends, are agenda driven, and the rest of us be damned.

Thanks.

I spend so much time
Believing all the lies
To keep the dream alive
Now it makes me sad
It makes me mad at truth
For loving what was you

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face.

Amazing how advanced market medical skills and technologies have given you life, Roger, yet you arrogantly and unappreciatively support a far left, socialized medicine, racist incompetent.

Way to give thanks for your life and its blessings.

What that means is that he knows that The Disaster is toast.

Next to the word “overrated” in the dictionary is a picture of Ebert. He has never been anything but.

There is one government program I would support - one to supply libtards (such as Ebert) with all the Valium they could consume for life. It costs a lot less than electing leftist Democrats. While it will not make them happy(because there is NO WAY to make a libtard happy), at least they will shut up and quit meddling in other people’s lives because they won’t give a $h1+ anymore.

I bill this as a very easy, practical and cost-effective way to solve our political log jam.

Hardly. There are so many populist hacks out there masquerading as film critics it’s not even funny. Ebert is a sad case...after Siskel died he went off the rails.

Neeson told OTRC.com that he was reluctant to do the sequel at all, joking, "I didn't see where it could possibly go. What? My daughter gets taken again? That's like really bad parenting."

Ebert is a dyed-in the wool Chicago old media millionaire Commie whose days of relevance have passed.

You are correct, he loves anti-American drivel, like Machete or Michael Moore’s lies...he wants Socialism and his 60’s Libtard mentality is annoying.

I hope his Marxist Jihadist goes down in flames in 3 weeks.
