OK, just how far right has the modern Republican Party gone?
Would you believe …
– Jay Bookman
October 25th, 20113:22 pm
I can’t view the video, but the headline with Robertson saying that the GOP base is too extreme. . .
Just. Wow. Is he saying it’s too extreme left, or too extreme right, or . . . or. . . too fundementalist?
October 25th, 20113:23 pm
oops, missed your actual text that it says “too far right”.
Robertson? Wow. He may actually get this headline accurate.
October 25th, 20113:25 pm
Saw that earlier….Pat Robertson – Bless your heart!
Speaking of Ms. Coulter, what do y’all think about taking up a collection to get her a new dress?
Or is that a uniform?
October 25th, 20113:28 pm
Damn, first Rove now Robertson. Maybe 2012 will be the end of the world. Next thing you know GW is going to show up at an OWS sit in.
And the Dems are too far left when their only solution is to raise taxes on the rich, and they give out waivers to their wonderful health care plan to everyone who donates money, while forcing the nondonaters to have to deal with the bungled bill.
When was the last time Pat Robertson was relevant, anyway? Might as well quote Jimmy Carter.
October 25th, 20113:30 pm
Being a heathen I have little interest in the opinions of ministers from Farrakhan to Robertson. At least he didn’t predict the world was going to end. When Pat called for the assassination of Hugo Chavez he was universally denounced at a nut job by all the left-wing intelligentsia. But when The Messiah puts the hit on Colonel K, Bookman wants to nominate him for another Nobel Peace Prize. Maybe Pat would have done better with a teleprompter. Actually he sounds sane compared to Plugs.
October 25th, 20113:31 pm
Dayum Jimmy, u sound like you took what he said all personal.
I’m not sure Media Matters is going to appreciate you two timing them with “rightwingwatch.org”.
October 25th, 20113:32 pm
So, did Pat just find the real Jesus or is winning now more important to him than getting into heaven?
Bless your heart too!
Thank heavens God protects the simple folks.
October 25th, 20113:34 pm
End this charade of hiding behind shadow organizations.
If the frauds and charlatans for Christ like Pat of the $2000 suits don’t want a separation of church and state, fine.
I say tax the hell out of his unholy “church”.
October 25th, 20113:35 pm
Don’t even know who this guy is…
Can someone clue me in?
stands for decibels
Quiet, Pat. I’m, um, really SCARED of Cain and Perry and their uber-manliness!
yeah, that’s the ticket.
Mrs. G and Joe cool, I think Jimmy62’s Obama Derangement Sydrome meds have worn off.
October 25th, 20113:36 pm
“If the frauds and charlatans for Christ like Pat of the $2000 suits don’t want a separation of church and state, fine.
yeah, and throw in that democrat convention center known as ebenezer baptist church too…right?
October 25th, 20113:37 pm
This is one of those stories where you read the headline and think “those guys at The Onion, what will they think of next?”
October 25th, 20113:39 pm
Haha I heard about this this morning. It is SO funny.
As only leftists are cultists, no conservative would care that Mr. Robertson says anything, good or bad, unless there is an argument. sorta like leftists calling every conservative a “liar” or “stupid” – there is no “there” there.
Joe The Plumber too.
the democrat & OWS nightly prayer:
Heavenly obama, thank you for all you have provided today, thank you for taking from the evil rich to put food upon my table, thank you oh precious obama for caring enough for me to grace me with your image on every channel as you tour the country touching hands with mere mortals and remind us daily how it is you oh heavenly obama who gives us all we need, who leads us through our daily lives and who gives us every talking point our brainless heads share with others. Oh Lord obama, please take mercy on those heartless republicans that refuse to worship you and instead of having you provide every need have decided that hard work and self worth are the ways to have a bountiful life. Forgive them father obama for they know not what they do. In michelle’s holy name Lord obama Amen.
I think Pat’s just telling the GOP to quit saying nutty things cause the Dems are gonna use those sound bytes to crucify them in the general election.
Not that he doesn’t not believe those nutty things anymore.
October 25th, 20113:40 pm
Your google broke Pea??
Jimmy62: and they give out waivers to their wonderful health care plan to everyone who donates money
Until you provide proof of this you are A:
“When was the last time Pat Robertson was relevant, anyway? Might as well quote Jimmy Carter.”
Typical. The righties always dismiss anyone that calls them out for what they really are.
Sure is Amazing
October 25th, 20113:42 pm
Gee, I wonder if this guy aligns more with the Tea Party or Occupy Wall St?
“Georgia man convicted in plot to seize courthouse”
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — A jury convicted a Georgia man Tuesday of a federal firearms charge in what authorities said was a plot to take over a Tennessee courthouse and force President Barack Obama out of office.
“Your google broke Pea??” – Nope, but thanks for asking jackars.
They either dismiss them as irrelevant or pretend to not know who they are.
Peadawg – he’s the founder of the 700 Club. (basically a church that said all we need is 700 people do donate 700 dollars a year. . . but they didn’t stop there) He started the Christian Broadcast Network (CBN) that was sold off and (after a couple moves) is now ABC Family, which still shows the 700 Club, but run be his son. (another Reverend Robertson)
He also ran for president a few years back.
He’s a little to the right (a lot?) of Pat Buchanan. (if that helps)
October 25th, 2011
Don’t even know who this guy is…
Good Lord Peadawg!
October 25th, 20113:43 pm
No need for snarkiness, just look him up dude. Damn, someone pee in your Cheerios this morning?
Dear mm @ 3:40, good afternoon, you miss the main distinction between our ideologies. Conservatives do not care “who” says anything, we are only interested in the reasoning behind an affirmation. Leftists do not care “what” anyone says, but form their opinions entirely based on the identity of the speaker.
“Heavenly obama, thank you for all you have provided today, thank you for taking from the evil rich to put food upon my table,”
Give it up wingnuts, I’m willing to bet MOST Democrats are wealthier than you are.
Been that way for awhile now if one considers themselves anywhere near moderate……goes for the Dems too in relation to the Blue Dogs…….yet the base of both give us our wonderful voting options……
Common Sense isn't very Common
Joe the plumber – I read you are running for office in OHIO. Give Boner a hug maybe it will help you get elected
October 25th, 20113:44 pm
There go the “Pat who?” fringers!
Furiously in reverse!
By his own words, the man is a disgusting lout of a human being.
Own him, righties. He’s another one of your poster boys…
October 25th, 20113:45 pm
Thanks, Logical Dude.
“No need for snarkiness” – I agree. Take your own advice, punkin.
In Peadawg’s defense, Pat’s peak was more than 20 years ago.
It’s like a young person in 1968 wondering who the hell Wendell Wilkie was.
October 25th, 20113:46 pm
@mm, ” I’m willing to bet MOST Democrats are wealthier than you are”. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha……..bless your heart.
He basically just said that the conservatives are appealing to their small base in order to win the primary but then they will lose the general election because of it. I agree. This is how the two party system works (or doesn’t).
October 25th, 20113:47 pm
Who’s Wendell Wilkie?
OMG, I’d forgotten about this jewel:
“(T)he feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.” –Pat Robertson
October 25th, 20113:48 pm
Logical Dude beats me to it!!!
“I’m willing to bet MOST Democrats are wealthier than you are”. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha……..bless your heart.”
I know I am. Bums you out, huh.
October 25th, 20113:49 pm
defense for not knowing is cool
defense for not looking for himself….not so much
time he does his own homework or he’ll never learn
I like him and he has potential….
Good Lord make it stop.
October 25th, 20113:50 pm
You’re not even old enough to remember Wendell Wilkie — come on now.
Libertarian: He basically just said that the conservatives are appealing to their small base in order to win the primary but then they will lose the general election because of it. I agree.
If that’s what he said, then I agree too. The candidates are falling over themselves to please the “base”. But once past the base, the independents will not go for the extreme.
So let’s hope the more moderate(s) stay at the top for the primaries and the extremes can fall by the wayside.
But it’s only hope. . . reality does not look that way. (and it Got Georgia a bad Deal)
Lord Help Us
October 25th, 20113:51 pm
Pat Robertson is a RINO!!
Jerry Falwell just rolled over in his grave…
@common: wrong joe, and this joe wouldn’t run for anything for two reasons , I couldn’t take the paycut, and I’m afraid I’d get some serious assault charges having to deal with the sissy side of the aisle.
“and it Got Georgia a bad Deal”
October 25th, 20113:52 pm
“and I’m afraid I’d get some serious assault charges having to deal with the sissy side of the aisle”
Oh, so our Joe the Plumber is a real tough guy and would just beat up people he doesn’t agree with. Nice.
October 25th, 20113:54 pm
mm, no personal attacks. Your post has been pulled down.
If you think the posts on this blog are extreme, you really ought to google Pat Robertson. That guy is nuttier than a fruitbat.
I guess we should thank our radical rw extremists for four more years of sanity.
Thank you cons.
Keep voicing your rw extremist views.
Bless your hearts.
Hey!!! What happened??? I had firsties on page 2!!!
October 25th, 20113:56 pm
That’s one good way to look at it getalife!! It’s always best to see the postive, right??
October 25th, 20113:57 pm
Sorry Jay. Is “liar” off limits? If not, then you must be referring to “fool”. I meant to say “full”. Please reread my post.
Somebody has to do it
October 25th, 20113:58 pm
not all of them boschy, quite a few look like they might enjoy it too much. (laughs)
October 25th, 20113:59 pm
Off topic, but I missed this part in the article earlier about the crazy GA man who was gonna take over the courthouse to get Obama:
Huff was stopped by Tennessee officers in April 2010 and told them he was bringing guns into the state from Dallas, Ga., to support efforts to arrest Monroe County officials who refused to indict Obama.
OK, so you get pulled over in your “Don’t Tread” truck and tell the nice police officer this little tidbit of information, and you are now surprised in the fact that your government calls you a domestic terrorist.
October 25th, 20114:00 pm
Is this the same Pat Robertson who at age 73 leg pressed 2000 lbs?
Joe the Plumber,
So, you pride yourself in being a bully? How strange.
Plumber will beat you about the head and shoulders with his big, fat………………….wallet.
October 25th, 20114:01 pm
“This is like Ann Coulter calling you skinny”
……………. or Jay Bookman calling you a liberal patriot.
Redneck Convert (R--and proud of it)
October 25th, 20114:04 pm
Well, guess I must of done lived too long. There’s somebody on here that don’t know who the Rev. Pat Robertson is. To tell the truth, I get them mixed up too. I’m pretty sure he ain’t the one that chased the secretary and then got on TV and said, “I have sinned, Lord.” And he ain’t the one that was married to the ugly woman that put on make-up with a shovel and sold all the rooms in a place he built about 30 times over and then went to prison. And I’m pretty sure he ain’t the one that sniffed cocaine and got outted by his gay lover and then got kicked out of his church.
The question I got is, How come the libruls don’t have a bunch of TV preachers that come out and say things that rile people up? I mean, they got preachers but they don’t have their own TV shows.
Anyhow, you got to admit us Conservatives got lots of preachers we follow. One of them’s got to be right and that means we’ll be in Heaven while the libruls are roasting marshmallows you-know-where.

Liberals can’t be patriots?
October 25th, 20114:08 pm
WHERE’S THE PROOF?
You said it, now….
WHERE’S – THE – PROOF??!??!?!?!?!?
October 25th, 20114:09 pm
amwet & boschy, grasping at straws today huh fellers, what’s wrong has urkle not made any magic today? Has he not spun any miracles out DC? Has he not come up with a new lame brain idea for the dumb masses to hoot and holler about? Oh well there’s always tomorrow, even a fake messiah has a down day.
No, Liberals cannot be patriots, they hate America.
October 25th, 20114:10 pm
Sorry Joe – SO I guess giving Boner a hug is out of the question
October 25th, 20114:11 pm
Many American do not thing cons are funny.
They are sick of it.
Politics is a serious business.
Not for childish giggles.
Good thing the adults are in charge.
Lets keep it that way.
October 25th, 20114:12 pm
Just remember that George W. Bush, who lied and got us into two wars in which all those who have died and will still die have probably lost their lives for nothing, got elected and re-elected. Bachmann and Perry and Bush are like peas in a pod and I don’t see any evidence that the Republican electorate has gotten any smarter. If fact, based on some of the posts here, they are dumber than ever. When the Party can be so whacked out wrong that even Pat Robinson can see it, you know that if any of these Republcian clowns are elected, they just might make George W. Bush look like Abraham Lincoln.
October 25th, 20114:13 pm
OK, Pat Robertson….not funny
“So let’s hope the more moderate(s) stay at the top for the primaries and the extremes can fall by the wayside. ”
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way………some States do not allow crossover voting in the primaries……so the base is what elects the candidate……..of which may be less moderate than those in the middle can handle……as it is the middle that swings the elections……
October 25th, 20114:17 pm
carlosgvv: you know that if any of these Republcian clowns are elected, they just might make George W. Bush look like Abraham Lincoln.
Now it all makes sense… They want to revise history so that Bush Jr WASN’T the worst President ever!

Now why would the right wingnuts even be worried, we have been assured over and over that Obama is going to lose in 2012. So extremism does not matter, right?
I’m out. See you all later!

Geez Adam….here you go.
“More than 50 percent of the Obamacare waiver beneficiaries are union members, which is striking because union members account for less than 12 percent of the American work force. The same unions that provided more than $120 million to Democrats in the last two elections and, in many cases, openly campaigned in favor of the government takeover of your health care, now celebrate that Obamacare is not their problem.”
October 25th, 20114:21 pm
When I saw the lead and saw it was about Rev Pat I thought “uh, oh…. ‘a prophet hath no honor in his own country.’
Then I read the comments from our conservative friends.
I like it when I’m right.

October 25th, 20114:29 pm
Plumb-bob, someday, if I I’m real lucky and can just get a few more juicy Obama handouts, maybe I’ll get into that 1% with you!
In the meantime, I’ll just live my happy little life down here with the 99%.
BTW, how’s the septic tank pumping business going these days? Seeing a lot of Republican handiwork, up close and personal?
October 25th, 20114:30 pm
ok, gotta head to the house to get ready for a special dinner with the wife, one of our daughters and her fiance’, think he’s going to ask our blessings. I like the boy even if he does have a obama sticker, at least he’s still in college, he has time to grow out of stupidity, lol. Dems, don’t forget your nightly prayers. urkle gonna make all your boo-boos all better.
What would Bo the magic Portuguese Water Dog do?
October 25th, 20114:31 pm
Keep, I think the Mc Rib may be back too.
Be there or be 
October 25th, 20114:33 pm
amwet, there’s gold in those sewer lines. Don’t do septic but have a few buddies who do, if you are ever able to pass what you are full of most days, I’ll be happy to give you the number but you better tell them to bring the big truck…………………… gotta go, don’t forget your prayers this evening.
October 25th, 20114:35 pm
I’m sure you do, plumb.
Don’t make the kid eat freedom fries, OK?
October 25th, 20114:39 pm
Funny thing is, a lot of these liberals who belittle a plumber are the same ones who call the plumber and pay $100 to replace a simple gasket in their tank to fix a leaky toilet (after they let it run for 2 years).
October 25th, 20114:40 pm
joe gets a President Obama supporter to his family.
Listen to the kid joe.
He will probably get a better job than you.
October 25th, 20114:42 pm
No, I do that myself.
October 25th, 20114:43 pm
If Pat Robertson is calling them off the wall, they sho nuff are…
What you mean make George Bush look like Abraham Lincoln…spittin image of each other. invade a people to make them over in your image, kill a few hundred thousand for ego driven cause, run roughshod over the constitution, suspend habeas corpus, lock folks up with no charges, leave little but ill will behind you among the “liberated”…and so on and so on…
Want to know what is wrong with this country….. When George Bush and the Republicans can ship 40 Billion to Iraq, all wonders what happened to America ?
Here it is Republican’s ripping off America citizens is the GOP way !
October 25th, 20114:45 pm
“What would Cynthia McKinney do?”
Blame the J-E-W-S?
