right wing posters on this site are far more enamored of their talking heads than are left wing posters? glenn beck is a god, sarah palin is a queen. who are these people, really? they are people who were smart enough to capitalize on fear, no question. obama is a gift for them........because he's different, and, therefore, scary.

tells me that some people are easily led. you know who you are. turn off the tv, and the radio, get your news from varied sources, and read with a critical eye, no matter what the source.

No, haven't noticed that. But have noticed that Left Wingers continually ridicule the supposed Right Wing talking heads. Who are these people? Really. Is it fear? Or just good debate fodder?

no more odd than how enamoured liberals are with Obama. what I find odd is how liberals always want to attribute thoughts and feelings to conservatives that we don't really have.

you want to talk about enamoured??? just go back and look at all the footage of people swooning and fainting during Obama's campaign speeches. then come back and tell us how much more enamoured the cons are with Beck, Palin, Hannity, et al. I don't recall ever seeing anyone swoon over Glenn Beck. :mrgreen:

I'd fall asleep too if I had to listen to him for too long.

The left ridicule 'cause the right hold them up as figureheads, and the reverse is true for righties and Obama, the left hold him on a pedestal, and so the right ridicule him.

Left and right pundits often shine a bright light on the ridiculous. They're kinda' nice to have around. The problem only develops when people just accept what they say and don't think for themselves. Both sides are guilty of that.

I think I have noticed there are more Conservatives onboard here. Yay! But the Liberals are sure noisier.

When the left posts thread after thread demonizing, making fun of and lying about Beck, I stick up for him. They might call that swooning.
The left has accomplished one thing though. I am a bigger Beck fan now, than I ever was. I've felt obligated to watch and listen to him more often, especially since Media Matters seems to have made it a goal to destroy him.

I watch and read all media.
I credit those on the Right: Beck, Palin, Rush,Hannity,Levin,for waking us up and getting us involved with things that are going on in our country.
It seems the Right is getting jazzed and the left is becoming more and more frightened.
I really think Nov will be a turning point for this great country of ours.

P.S. I was afraid of what Obama would do to this country BEFORE he was elected. I did my homework (unlike the MSM) and knew what the man was about. The MSM during the campaign was more concerned with getting him elected by any means possible. They vetted Palin, demonized Palin. lied about Palin, to distract from Obama's associations, incompetance, and core beliefs. It had nothing to do with his race. In fact, that's the only thing I considered a plus for the man. I thought maybe he would be a uniter. That sure didn't happen.

Oh well,
God Bless all the conservative talk show hosts! You keep me sane!

Well, Liberals sure seem meaner and angrier to me, than Conservatives. They seem to attack people for things other than whatever the topic is. They seem to name call more too, when they have nothing of substance to say about a person.

I think this shows that liblady is fearful. Nobody on the left is 1/4th as powerful as Glenn Beck. She knows her party will be run through the meat grinder in November and she's trying, desperate as it may be, to smear the right.

Liblady is one example of why I don't think the left should even be in control of this country again.

Its always been the way (Id be willing to bet that 40-50% of the right wing pundits audience is leftists)...and the same can be said that the liberal leaning folks here are at LEAST as obsessed with those same individuals. What s NOT mentioned very often is the left leaning pundits...probably because BOTH sides can see that they kinda suck.

Alan Colms, isn't around much anymore. Michael Moore, not getting too much attention either.
That leaves (all on MSNBC) ED Shultz, Chris Mathews, Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann. Those are the four top far far left pundits in my opinion.

in other words..you made a claim you can't back up and now instead of admitting it you arrogantly claim "not gonna waste my time".

If you are not willing to provide evidence to back up your claims...don't make them.

Defending Beck from the relentless personal attacks launched by the left, is a far cry from "swooning".

Glenn Beck is on vacation this wekk, yet the attack threads just keep coming.
