Mary Matalin on Rush today - and is she off base? (Stunned)
4-23-2012 | Self

Posted on 04/23/2012 9:30:05 AM PDT by C. Edmund Wright

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!

If there is public virtue, there are no parasites. People have enough moral values to not abuse the system. People have to have a certain level of honesty and dignity with constrained government. No public virtue means no good judges, no good public officials to put common sense practices into place.

If you were elected, the unemployment rate would increase
for a time, because you would..

1) Close the Department of Energy

2) Close the Dept. of Education

3) Close the EPA

4) Give illegals 60 days to leave.

5) No I.D. no vote.

6) Drill like no tomorrow

But in a year or 2, business would boom, and the debt shrink

And America would get real witty one liners !

SOL 2012 !!

Newt may be in the market for a new gig soon. I’d love to listen to him on a daily basis. But I’ll bet Rush wouldn’t let him be a guest host, because Newt probably would outshine Mah Rushie too much!

Yes, we should hope to find virtue in government and we should encourage the virtuous to seek office. However, we should assume that anyone seeking political office has the morals of an alley cat. We should assume that they’re all scoundrels looking for a bribe or a piece of tail or both. We should never stop digging for dirt.

“We have concentrated so much power in Washington that no matter how virtuous a pol is when he arrives, they are soon corrupted. Political power corrupts everything and everyone it touches.”

“We, the people” get duped over and over again by having our government and special interests in one concentrated are for most of their “reign”.

This is 21st century. Send ALL politicians back to their states and districts. Every last one of them. The give them “Skype,” “Go to my PC”, “Go to Meetings”, ability to teleconference.

Anything less than this is putting the government at peril and really shafting “we, the people...”

“Poor dear. In a book of just-missed-the-mark quotations. A limit on government is something that is antecedent to government. It is something the founders said lay in the people, that was expressed in the Declaration and the Constitution, and that the people should re-impose on government by whichever means are most appropriate when government, whether large or small, starts to trample their liberties.”

Yes, the Founders knew that the PEOPLE, not those in government, must be virtuous and they also knew that those in power would do what those in power always do - try to increase it - which is why they focused on the LIMITS of government and the VIRTUE OF THE PEOPLE NOT IN government.

Something you, and Mary Matalin, miss.

Mary Matalin is what you’d expect from a GOP-e insider.

Little surprise to hear her say that she grew up a liberal and ‘converted’ to being a conservative. There are a lot of this sort in the ‘conservative’ media whose instincts were Left. Medved and Krauthammer being two more.

I listened off and on this morning and I found no fault. I was disappointed Rush was not there, but she was not insufferable. And I thought it very realistic when she had her husband on (though he needs an interpreter) and he was explaining how well he and rush get along. I have a lot of liberal friends and relatives so I understand. He seems like a very loving husband, and I can think of a handful of conservatives that may have their politics together but not their families.

I don’t mind the exposure to others if rush has to be gone. My favorite by far is mark Steyn because he is brilliant and funny.

Men are not Angels, but I’d like to think we can at least reduce the number of absolute scumballs serving in government

We can, but not with some kind of naive nicey "pick the nice person" kind of unrealistic plea. We can ONLY limit the scums in government by taking away that which incents scum to run - which is money and power. Take that away, and the scum will go away on their own. THink about it. This is the genius of limited government and liberty - not some kind of Glenn Beck Mary Matalin special divination of who the angels are and are not.

"Just pointing out a pattern I’ve noticed,"

So what? I post occasionally on Beck threads, and I make it clear I don't like him. Are you such a fanboy that you get butthurt when folks do that? You post every day on Trayvon threads. That's a pattern I've noticed. And I couldn't care less. You shouldn't take dislike of Beck so personally, Chris. It's getting a little weird, this preoccupation with my posting habits.

" and no, I haven’t, I’m listening to Glenn right now since Mary Matalin is so utterly boring."

Oh, okay. I recall you saying you were done with Beck, would never listen to him again, etc. Whatever. The heart of a true fan wins out in the end, I guess. :)

The Founders designed a government that would work well when populated by virtuous men.

This is where a little info is dangerous. The Founders designed a government that would work well for virtuous people with a government populated by very few people with very little power because the Founders knew that power attracts those of little virtue. You have it wrong.

Limited government will never occur without virtuous people in power.

NO NO NO NO NO - limited government can only occur when the population is both free and virtuous and they thereby limit the power of government. Your equation is government central and therefore NOT AT ALL NOT AT ALL NOT AT ALL what the Founders intended. WE, not THEY, have to keep them in CHECK because the Founders KNEW they would not.

The burden of virtue is on US, NOT the elected folks.

An awful lot of people fall when young for the liberal bs all around them. Don’t fault anyone for that. Especially when they get smart and become a conservative.

I became a Conservative when living off a government at 90% of my salary, staying home with my baby. It was just so wrong yet I did not refuse the money. Instead I became a conservative because now I got it. Taxes were sky high to pay for my luxury? Wrong wrong wrong.

Take your vile, unsubstantiated and calculated slander of Franklin somewhere else, shill.

Google is your friend, so is the search for truth. If you don't like the truth - well, that is your problem, isn't it?

As a matter of record, there were abundant stories about Benjamin Franklin's affairs with the 'ladies'. He, himself, often wrote those stories and promoted their distribution. Read, learn and stop calling people names. You look foolish.

http://www.constitution.org/primarysources/mistress.html
http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/2522/whats-the-true-story-on-benjamin-franklin

It was rumored that he had several 'flings' while serving in Paris, as well as giving a friend of his a letter on advice in selecting a mistress.

Ben Franklin was a genius, an inspired leader among men .... but he was not pefect, he had his flaws - as do all men. You would do yourself a service to look up some facts on these founding fathers, rather than flame someone who has taken a bit of time to research them - as individuals.

For example, did you know that in the 1770's George Washington grew and wrote papers on how to grow marijuana? Some would argue that the crop was grown for it's hemp and as a soil 'stabilizer' however, that does not explain his papers on removing the male buds. Of course, at that point in time, this was perfectly legal, and there was a market for this crop (primarily rope and canvass), if you chose to believe he never smoked it, that is your priviledge; however naive it may be.

I believe you are right. On second thought and listening to the show as it went along, I believe it represented the start of the GOP presidential campaign. Starting on the basis that character counts, i.e. virtue is an excellent beginning. My initial reaction was premature and based on my repulsion of the corrupting meme of ‘can’t we all get along’. I realize it was not this at all. Well done Merry M.

Of course the burden is on us, but if we don’t put a virtuous person in power, nothing will happen.

That is why recognizing that virtue is important is... well, so important.

If we, as voters, don’t think that virtue in an elected official will lead to smaller government, then we will continue to discount the importance of virtue, and we will never get smaller government.

You can’t have smaller government until you have virtuous men in power.

My oldest son sat and watched them and was a huge Ollie North fan. That boy was raised right.

A few years later he went to Indiana University. They turned him into a lib. He isn’t as bad now as he was about 5 years ago. But indoctrination when they leave the nest happens.

You post about Beck on non-beck threads i.e. this one, and yeah I can tell you don’t like him, and it’s apparently such a burden that you can’t keep it to yourself.

Yep, I post everyday on Trayvon threads, that’s a pattern I’ve noticed myself.

I don’t take your dislike of Beck personally, wonder what makes you think I do...and I’m not preoccupied with your posting habits, they just jump out at me because, well, they are weird.

I was definitely mad with him over his inability or refusal to see the game being played here. He, of all people, should have been able to see it, as he is the one who showed everyone else how the media manipulates.

Personally, I think he is so fearful of black riots that he is willing to toss a single person under the bus to avoid them, but I could be wrong on that, bcause he has changed his tune on Zimmerman from what I can hear, but he already did damage, and he should pay for it in a civil court IMO.

But yeah, I am a fan of Beck, so what? Dude has done a lot of good and has a lot of insight, certainly much more than say, you. And you can keep up your little smiley’s all day, you’re not bothering me at all with them. If it makes you smile to know that I am a fan and listener of Glenn’s, then smile away, because that is the case.

f there is public virtue, there are no parasites. People have enough moral values to not abuse the system

I am sorry, but public virtue is a meaningless phrase. If it is anything it is only something that exists in an imaginary world.

It can and will never exist in the real world. Please understand that Government is force, nothing more, nothing less.

If government was the size that our Founders intended, we would hardly know it exists. Then, it would not matter if there were busy bodies or control freaks running it. They would not be able to do much damage.

As it is, the virtuous are in the process of controlling every d*mn aspect of our lives; from our toilets, to our light bulbs, to what we eat.

Please tell me virtuous public servants would go about drastically reducing the size of government??? It will NEVER happen.

Governments are, without a doubt, the most destruction institutions ever created by man.

The bigger a government becomes the more it becomes inhabited by utterly evil and sadistic people.

I'm afraid it might say more about Clear Channel's and Premiere's (Rush's syndicator) political views.

Rush is too big to be pushed around by anyone - including Clear Channel. He has direct and sole control of the editorial content of his program. If his guest hosts are all spouting the pro-Romney line....well, it doesn't take an Einstein to figure out where Rush is on this election.
