Levin rips Kristol over tax hikes: ‘Stop talking like the lib you used to be’

Radio host Mark Levin disagreed Monday with Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol on tax hikes, and said that he is aiding “Obama’s attack on capitalism and successful people.”

As a panelist on “Fox News Sunday,” Kristol  has argued that the Republican Party should be willing to raise taxes and that the tea party wouldn’t care if “a few millionaires pay a couple percent more in taxes.”

But Levin — a prominent figure within the tea party movement — ripped Kristol’s analysis.

“Among the others who I think it’s time just to go someplace and talk among yourselves, would be Bill Kristol,” Levin said. “I don’t know what he’s added to anything other than giving aid and comfort to Obama’s attack on capitalism and successful people. This has to be the 40th time he’s said something on this.”

    “The lib you used to be”? Something’s off with the verb tense here.

    ok, maybe this isnt the place or the time, but now is when I have this this say, I spent my life living broadly within the rules and moors that were expected of me. And I did ok, now, when I need the rules to apply, the jackasses in control are changing them to favor the lazy shiftless greedy assholes I was always told not to be.

    you dont want me to just be watching out for myself only. I promise only blood and fear as I fight for what i want. If I bring to bear the same energy to bear that I did to years of operate copulation as I do to fucking you all out all I can get you are screwed.

    I have had it, now you have too

    Weekly Standard Editors, Bill Kristol and Fred Barnes, are a pair of ding dongs, imho. Both of them have frequently crossed the line while trying to be way, WAY too objective. They remind me of NYT ding dong, David Brooks. Another ditzy journalist.

    But then, in a different sense, Mr. Hyperbole himself, Mark Levin, frequently crosses the line and strains credulity, too. So what we saw there was the pot calling the kettle black.

    Al Sharpton, a caricature of his former self, has been bringing into sharp focus the probability that, to be a political commentator or journalist. a prequisite is that they must be batty first and foremost. Levin, Kristol and Barnes certainly fill that criteria.

    Levin proves once again, that today’s center right, is further left than the Seventies Norman Lear.
    Right on Maude! You won.

    The First Rule of Political Fight Club: You can’t out lib a lib. If you try voters will always pick the real lib.

    Second Rule of Political Fight Club: Stick to conservative principles. History is on your side and its your responsibility to pass on the philosophy to future generations when Conservativism is out of vogue.

    Economic collapse has a way of focusing the mind of citizens, just ask the Former Soviet Union and Iron Curtain countiries and other Communist experiments in the 20th Century. Even the worst zombified nation has to claw its way back to rational economics given enough time for them to collapse.

    Bill who?

    Ha. –

    Why does Kristol look like he is crying while sounding like he is whining?

    Billy Crystal would be a better political editor, and would be more interesting.
