Talk about your America-hating media members.
On the final episode of the syndicated Chris Matthews Show Sunday, Andrew Sullivan actually said that - to laughter from many in the studio - “with any luck,” America won’t be a superpower in 20 years (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Andrew Sullivan: With Any Luck America Wont Be a Superpower in 20 Years
CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Andrew, are we going to be - being we Americans, you included - are we going to be the great, are we still going to use that word superpower? I don't even like it very much. The lone superpower. Are we going to be that 20 years from now?
ANDREW SULLIVAN: With any luck we won't be.
Those not watching the video are advised that for his final show, Matthews had on seventeen of his regular guests, many of which were shown laughing when Sullivan said this.
Tells you a lot about what so-called liberal media members think of their own nation, doesn't it?
SULLIVAN: We will understand what the founders understood. When you leave America and you go back and you look at it from like over here, and you see this giant continent with two vast oceans in between it, and it feels it's paranoid and terrified of the rest of the world, and wants to have this enormous military industrial complex to control it, you just scratch your head after a while and realize that Eisenhower was on to something. So was Washington, so was Jefferson. I think the transition to a post-imperial America is coming. I think its overdue and I welcome it.
I bet he and many in the studio do.
Says a lot about the state of journalism today, doesn't it?
No, it will be a footnote in history in less then 20 years at the rate we are going.
With any luck you’ll be speaking Chinese and bowing to your new masters if America fails to maintain her place in the world.
I hope Sullivan and Obama don’t get their wish.
This is not just the MSM’s wishes. This is the regimes plan
You guys go live in Cubra...we will take it from here.
Some such people are America hating, but for others being a super power particularly the lone super power is just too much responsibility. Confident people on the other hand do not have a problem with a world where the US leads.
We will be like Europe. Living beyond our means and telling everybody about when we were relevant, and solvent.
AIDs does terrible things to gay brains.
With any luck, that “rooster” sucker Sullivan gets his ass kicked for what he said about Palin’s kids.
Too many patriots to let that happen. If it does go down I bet that the media will be the first to go. They're no better than North Korea's news bureau.
Here is what they have at wikipedia :
“Sullivan supported the 2003 invasion of Iraq by the United States, and was initially hawkish in the war on terror, arguing that weakness would embolden terrorists. Immediately following the September 11 attacks in 2001, he wrote a controversial essay for The Sunday Times, in which he stated, “The middle part of the country the great red zone that voted for Bush is clearly ready for war. The decadent Left in its enclaves on the coasts is not dead and may well mount what amounts to a fifth column.” In an 14 October 2001 post, Sullivan announced that recent anthrax attacks had sealed his support for war on Iraq, including the possible use of nuclear weaponry by the United States.”
what? He doesn’t want us to be a superpower but was OK with going into Iraq and using nukes. This guy is all over the place.
To be fair, it could be syphilis.
Luck won’t have anything to do with it.
Loathing of one’s country appears to be endemic among western ‘intellectuals’.
Makes one wonder how the West has survived so long.
With the way this country tries to force other countries to accept homosexuality and our deviant culture, maybe it’s best we aren’t a superpower, but I’m sure that’s not how Andrew was thinking.
Okay, guess I can’t say what I think. Bummer.
This pervert can’t think past the next penis penetrating his pink posterior.
They are the weakest link
May God bless them for their great taste in interior decoration...and their wonderful appreciation of art.
But when it comes to defending our borders and our freedoms...go away you little butt boys and let the real men save our freedom...
Let us real men die a dignified death.
If the future is yours...then may God bless you.
But let the rest of us die a dignified death and be done with you
With any luck, Andrew Sullivan will succumb from AIDS within 20 years. He’s a long time HIV carrier.
Somebody tell me this isn’t a hoax. The “final” Chris Matthews show? I thought by liberal definition, any program on PMSNBC was too big to fail. The show has been on the air for a decade and a half, and though its ratings were always in the tank, liberals acted like it was another Sixty Minutes. No wonder John Hawkins of RightWingnews.com thought that Prissy Chrissy had incriminating photos of his boss in a Tijuana brothel, and used them to keep from getting canceled.
We won't be reading no cursive....
Well, it is the isolationist’s dream
If his point is that we should cease being the world's policeman yet be strong enough to take on all comers, there is a certain logic in that. The trouble is Fortress America was a mid 20th century construct and there is also a certain logic in forward defense.
Just look at the “benefits” us being a Superpower have reaped in the Middle East....one Islamic regime after another.
Andrew is looking forward to life in the gulag. He will be very popular there.
The “patriots” are befuddled by televised sports.
Thinking people are repelled by Andrew Sullivan.
The country falls, either way.
What a queer thing to say.
Andrew Sullivan - Refers to a medical condition where a section of the wall of the rectum prolapses (falls down) from the normal anatomical position....
Nope. There’s a brick wall to his right still standing. Give him a min or two to remedy that. Then his work will be done.
Something happened to him. There are plenty of jokes on FR about Sullivan's AIDS affecting his brain, but maybe they aren't just jokes. The link below goes to the Neurological Complications of AIDS Fact Sheet from the National Institutes of Health:
Here's a sample:
The virus does not appear to directly invade nerve cells but it jeopardizes their health and function. The resulting inflammation may damage the brain and spinal cord and cause symptoms such as confusion and forgetfulness, behavioral changes, headaches, progressive weakness, and loss of sensation in the arms and legs. Cognitive motor impairment or damage to the peripheral nerves is also common. Research has shown that the HIV infection can significantly alter the size of certain brain structures involved in learning and information processing.
Other nervous system complications that occur as a result of the disease or the drugs used to treat it include pain, seizures, shingles, spinal cord problems, lack of coordination, difficult or painful swallowing, anxiety disorder, depression, fever, vision loss, gait disorders, destruction of brain tissue, and coma. These symptoms may be mild in the early stages of AIDS but can become progressively severe.
In the United States, neurological complications are seen in more than 50 percent of adults with AIDS. Nervous system complications in children may include developmental delays, loss of previously achieved milestones, brain lesions, nerve pain, smaller than normal skull size, slow growth, eye problems, and recurring bacterial infections.
Well, Andrew, don’t forget to call the U.S. Marines to rescue you when your new Islamofacists friends decide that, as a gay person, you need to dance the Tyburn Jig.
What did poor innocent LSD ever do to deserve the comparison? On LSD you knew it was a trip. These people think it’s reality.
And you will have been killed in a stadium.
Really stuck on stupid.
We post a Sarah pic to up his PDS blood pressure.
And we'll be under sharia rule, and homosexuals will be stoned to death...
This is really what you want Andrew?
Ok, Andrew, so when the Muslims in Europe come after you, don’t expect us to let you in. Fair enough?
“Those not watching the video are advised that for his final show, Matthews had on seventeen of his regular guests, many of which were shown laughing when Sullivan said this.”
Coincidentally, ratings for the final episode were at an all-time high, claiming a whopping seventeen viewers.
Andy doesn’t have much faith in 0bama’s plan then;.... 0bama intends for the US to be a third world nation disrupted by internecine tribal warfare by 2015.5
Who cares what that faggie thinks?
Well, wait, there was something good to come out of this:
On the final episode of the syndicated Chris Matthews Show....
So, this is Spittle Boy’s last show? Good! But what cabinet position is he going to?
But, won’t the Sharia law folks who take over kill guys like Sullivan?
Yes. So he won’t be so lucky then.
With any kind of luck, the world will be rid of Andrew Sullivan before that happens.
Let me know when and where, I’d like to partake in that!
This freak is one of the lowest of the low.
I think he’s going to spot Reggie every third weekend.
We’re fast falling from anything but being the butt of jokes.
