Are you kidding me? this guy is a hateful racist that try to talk in code to rednecks that listen to him the hell with him he should be in Iran right now since he always sit behind a Mic and take shots at people like he is perfect, he refuse to call our president by his proper name and he is just like Hannity, and the rest of those bums who never served in the military but yet they call thimselve American!

Don, you are a douche and apparently by your post have been eating paint chips in a trailer park somewhere. I am SO TIRED of people taking shots at Boortz and Hannity because they voice their opinions. A little tip for ya Don, if you don’t like what they say you can change the channel. Also, you might want to proof read you post before you click on “submit comment.”

Boortz is already in the Georgia and Texas Radio Halls of Fame. Those are bigger honors IMHO. Take a look at some of the bozos who’ve been put in the national one. Where do they find these people?

I am all for free speech and if you don’t like the show then change the channel. But Boortz is an undercover republican conservative like O’Reilly who don’t admit to being affiliated with a political party but you can guess who they vote for. Their biggest rallying cry is the liberal media and wasting THEIR tax dollars.

Wow Don, angry much? I was not referring to you when I said R.I.P. Coco (unless that is, your name is actually Coco). Derewood- “people like” me try to keep things simple for people like you when telling you to change the channel on the radio. We don’t want to confuse anyone.

Ignore Don, he is homeless vagrant that has aids from humping animals in the jungle. He will be gone sooner than later. Don also is gay.

He’s arrogant enough already.With all the talk about his plane, Florida condo and motorcycle, he’s just trying to say “I pity anyone who isn’t me”, borrowing a line from “West Side Story”

Neal Boortz is a blowhard. My son was at the studio and said he looks like an angry boil about to burst.

Don’t encourage this blister on Atlanta’s behind. He’s Altalnta’s problem and not much to listen to unless you are into the Klan ilk.

It’s easy to see how the Tommy Flanagan character on SNL is just Neil Boortz with a national audience. The Pathological Liar is a character created and portrayed by Jon Lovitz, often appearing on Weekend Update segments to share his farcical views. The character’s name was Tommy Flanagan and he would tell outrageous whoppers in an effort to make himself seem important which is a Neil Boortz modus operandi.
His take on the world is as self-serving, twisted and perverse. He has no use for anyone who doesn’t share his delusions and hatred of Americans. His rants and fabrications are aimed at anyone who isn’t lying to start a war or create a depression. He’s happiest when conservatives are doing the damage and can’t stand the thought of anyone else destroying this country.
His generalizations are so childish it’s hard to listen to an adult make it up as he goes as if he’s in a skit on SNL.
He’s happy to share his sociopathic penchant for condemning fellow Americans who don’t have his enthusiasm and enjoyment of creating a war between the uneducated, trailer trash he represents and any American who dares to think other as he does. The only award he deserves is for cowardice.
And he’s too shallow and mean spirited to be entertaining.
BTW Neil why the hatred for educators. Perhaps you just resent people who know more than you do.
