Skip to comments.Michael Savage: The Enemy Within (One of The Biggest Threats to Conservatives)
Posted on 04/04/2007 5:58:38 AM PDT by NYC Republican
To those that don't know Savage or listen to him, he claims to be an "independent conservative"... He surely does espouse some conservative views, but the vile he spews towards Bush, his cabinet, and other Republicans and GOPers could be mistaken for Air America trash.
It would be easy to blow him off as another looney blow-hard, but he's the 3rd most listened-to talk show host in the nation... He has over 8 million listeners, and in calling himself a conservative, he DOES have some real influence there. He's supposed to be on our side, but shifts positions so often, he's become a joke. He embodies every lefty criticism of our side.
In listening to parts of his show last night, he has the following things to say, in a short time span...
* Syria isn't nearly as bad as Iran, they can be spoken to, they don't threaten Israel, they are nationalists not fundamentalists
* The war was started to benefit Oil companies.
* Blasted Bush to no end, said Rice should have been fired a long time ago, blasted the rest of the cabinet
* Said it was OK for Pelosi to go talk to Syria
* Asked why is there a division between GOP and Dems, why do we automatically assume everything they do should be hated, etc.
In my view, this scum is far more dangerous than Air America and nearly every lib out there. He's pretending to be a conservative, yet does more damage to our causes than any other non-politician I can think of, because he has the influence to sway people.
This guy is an utter disgrace and a phony.
Republicanism does not equate to Conservatism any longer and really never has. Although there are a majority of Conservatives in the Party, we have never actually ran it.
And no, Bush is not a Conservative. He is a Globalist “New World Order” type.
Did you by any chance mean to use the noun "bile" instead of the adjective "vile?"
What a surprise that you posted this!!!
Actually, after listening to the first hour replay I have to say he was way too easy on Assad. I don’t think he was “reprehensible” in his reaction to the callers: although I didn’t catch the first half of hour two.
Hunter is a great person, great record, but nothing more than a protest candidate.
I don’t know what Savage is smoking. Sometimes he is dead right on issues, other times - like last night, he sounds like he needs a rubber room somewhere.
Nope. Bile would have been fine also, but vile is a stronger way of expressing it, imo.
I tried listening to him. He spews so much bile, I can’t stand it.
Bush started out as a conservative (taxes and fiscal issues, SC judges, etc), but became too engrossed in trying to "change the tone" and appease the other side... and NOT fight back at outrageous, scurrilous charges.
That's exactly what I did as he berated 'Ed' from NYC who was just trying to bring up for discussion how he switches from one side to another. When Savage asked him, "So how long ago did your wife leave you", that was the last straw.
I agree. Michael Savage is a leftist portraying a caricature of a rightwinger. He is all rant and no reason.
That's what I was referring to mostly, that specific caller. Savage was harsher than usual, got downright personal, trashed him after he left, said he had the onset of dementia, can't think for himself, must be awful to live with, would cause someone to be suicidal
All of this disgaceful nastiness towards a 70 year old man, who simply challenged Weiner's support of Pelosi and his shifting views... Unbelievable.
Sometimes he can make good points but more often that not he says something real stupid, that causes me to cringe and change the radio station.
Like after the first 30 minutes of the Reagan Funeral he was saying “that’s enough shut that stuff off, that’s enough, I can’t take anymore”. I think the idiots on AirAmerica was showing the late Ronald Reagan more respect than Savage.
Savage is number 3 overall and not gonna get any higher. I don't think he envies Rush, et. al., as much as he wants to be the leader of the "independent" talkers. Sometimes he deliberately veers from the main topic of discussion that occurs earlier in the day for the "fun" of it. Sometimes it works, sometimes he ticks people off.
Use the little knob on your radio and turn to another station if you don’t care for Michael Weiner (Savage).
I tried to listen to him (on the recommendation of a friend), and found him a total nutcase. I don’t know if he drinks, smokes, etc., or maybe he’s got some kind of bi-polar disorder. I couldn’t take the yelling and screaming.
See posts 29 and 33. If you heard his reaction to this caller, and you don’t think it was over-the-top mean, then I just don’t know...
Rudy supports the war on terror. How can you compare the two
The only thing I can agree with is Rice has to go...anyone who submits, and gets approved, the transfer of weapons to the palistinians, because they “promise” not to use them against Israel is an utter, complete idiot.....and incompetent...
