Posted on 01/05/2014 2:07:16 PM PST by afraidfortherepublic
On CNNs State of the Union Sunday, host Candy Crowley asked a question of Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wisc.) that should offend people on both sides of the aisle.
If I am an unemployed American
or if I am a minimum wage worker
why would I become a Republican? (video at source with transcript and commentary):

Because that’s all the demoncrats have to offer.
It’s amazing that this heel clicking apparatchik was chosen to moderate a presidential debate.
hide the children. cramdy crowlady looks hungry.

Candy Crowley: Why Would I Become a Republican' If I'm A Fat Bitch?
Can I say fat tramp
Because Democrat liberals like you are stupid. You and your Party got us to this miserable situation. Wake-up and get your brain out of stupid, if that’s possible.
what wasn’t amazing is that she significantly altered the debate to favor President Pretentiousness.
that was the slimiest move in the history of slime. poor mittens. He wasn’t my guy, but I felt sorry for him that night.
absolutely clueless woman!!
Because the Republicans want to turn you into a middle class worker with a good job and benefits. They don’t want to keep you at subsistence level with welfare payments.
The truth is the poor should never vote for anyone who claims to represent them. Politicians who “Stand for the little guy” have a vested interest in making sure that there are lots of little guys to stand for
Because you don't want to stay that way.
>>If I am an unemployed American or if I am a minimum wage worker why would I become a Republican?
When you view the government (and by extension, the taxpayers) as a limitless piggy bank to be exploited for your own personal gain, there is no reason to be a Republican.
Republicans (the non-elite ones, at least) stand for the values that made America great. The person who is unemployed or working for minimum wage and believes that things will never get better is not a real American. They live here and have citizenship, but they are not made of the same stuff as the people who arrived here on sailing ships, tamed the frontier, won WW2, and went to the Moon.
Of course they would be Democrats since that is the party for people who have failed as human beings. It is the party of the herd.
Hey Ditz! Maybe it’s because it’s your boy and his DemocRATS who caused him/her to become unemployed? Come on Candy, you can’t go through your entire life being braindead. Try using that stuff between your ears at least once!
I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: I am mystified how Crowley has lasted as long as she has in the business, much less become CNN’s “top analyst.” The woman is quite literally, the least insightful political commentator I have seen in a long, long time. She pretty much spouts stuff everyone else already has figured out, and never does more than skim the surface of the harder issues. She’s more Meghan McCain than Bill Buckley.
Bing bing bing bing bing, we have a winner!!!!
Damn is she ugly. I’ve seen better looking trannies
Everyone has the right to be stupid and ugly, she abuses both.
What's amazing is that the GOPe agreed with her to be a 'moderator ' for a Presidential debate.
I believe that her selection was made by the 'League of Women Voters' who aren't known for non-partisian participation.
The term :"Criminl Facilitation" immediately comes to mind .
Hey Candy baby,...you’re an idiot.
-or if I am a minimum wage worker why would I become a Republican?-
The appropriate answer to this female dog is - Your are Commie Dictator you will never become a freedom loving American
Bravo, sir! Superb! That should be a slogan for every conservative campaigner from here on out!
Yeah Candy, God forbid someone WORK for their money, why work when they can sit on their fat asses, eat donuts all day, and play XBOX while they await their welfare and food stamp checks to arrive in the mail
Because everybody deserves a second chance to have a good life..
Neither wing of the “demopublican” party gives a rodent’s nether-regions about the working class. It’s just that one wing is better at faking concern than the other.
Because I am not a Tw´tt.
Candy, we’re going to make you a free woman whether you want to be free or not!
Candy Growley, devouring the hopes and dreams of the little people between food binges.
Maybe because the survival of capitalism might be to your advantage?
Thus spake the human eclipse.....
Governor Walker offered a good response that Crowley dismissed, of course. The comments on the webpage that was linked are both amusing and encouraging.
If merit and ability were what mattered, Candy would be unemployed herself.
This reminds me so much of one of my all-time favorite TV show scenes, from Laverne & Shirley.
Shirley is making out with Carmine “the Big Ragu” on the couch, and Lenny and Squiggy are constantly interrupting them. Exacerbated, Carmine turns to the duo and says, “If I give you 10 bucks, will you LEAVE?!” To which Squiggy matter-of-factly replies:
“Why would we leave someone who’s giving us money?”
If that's her logic-- then why would any hard working, tax paying American or entrepreneur ever become a Democrat?
Yet another member of the Liberal Establishment admits that Romney had it right with his 47% comment.
The Republican Party won’t win by trying to outbid the Dems for people on unemployment and welfare. It could, possibly, win by appealing to people who are working their tails off to subsidize those on unemployment and welfare, plus those who want to get off of it and are actively trying to without success.
Candy; your needs are more than I can ever...
what a great softball. obvious answer “Given that democrat policies destroy jobs why would one of those people want to be a democrat? Republicans want to grow the economy which will result in better employment conditions for those at all salary levels including minimum wage.”
Why Candy? (you progressive pill)
So you can get a job, support yourself and your family, and contribute to society instead of being a burden to it.
See http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3108671/posts for a better explanation of what he really said!

here is the proper response:
Liberal line: Free stuff (until we run out)
Conservative line: stuff you have to work for (but we have plenty)
Just stay an ignorant democrat tool Candy.
Here is what he answered:
No, the American dream is given a chance, given an opportunity, the great thing about this country, greater than just about any country in the world, is that you have an equal opportunity, but the outcome’s up to you. The problem is too many Americans right now don’t have that equal opportunity, and we should be making the case about how we’re going to make it easier to create a job, easier to get in the workforce, easier to get the skills that they need to fill those jobs. Were not going to artificially raise things.
I’m not sure he couldn’t have made a better argument.
Hey! That is an insult to all fat people and bitches!
Didn’t she just admit Democrats buy votes?
Republicans and other variety of conservatives need to be ready to grab the opportunity to teach and inform. What Candy asked was not rude or disrespectful, although she probably said it with a hint of derision. Hopefully, Scott Brown was able to keep his cool, stay on point, stay positive, be clear and concise. Tell her what she has to gain by embracing our point of view. Don’t expect people like Candy to accept out positions when solely based on morality. That used to work a generation ago, but as we have seen since 2008, the morally grounded voter, who understands and appreciates this system of government is not now in the majority. At very least those who think as we say we do, are not showing it through massive amounts of voting. We have to work with who now populates and most legislates this land; i.e. the 47%.
