Chickenhawk and radio talk show host Mark Levin visited the Hannity show last night to whip the Fox News troops into a fightin’ frenzy – without the slightest indication he'd be putting his own well-paid fanny on the line any time soon.
In the first of what he has promised will be many “regular” visits, Levin commented on President Obama’s State of the Union address “Castro-like speech” and worked himself into a lather of hate mongering that must have been music to the ears of any Glenn Beck fan.
For him, America is a problem. The free-enterprise system is a problem. The American people are a problem. He treats us like we’re France.
Hannity, predictably, ate it up. He gushed, “In your book… you actually said this is a post-Constitutional America… What does that mean for the country?”
Armchair General Levin didn’t need any further prodding to lay some more of his hatriotism on us. “Big deal, he won an election,” Mr. I-Love-The-Constitution said. “I’m sick and tired of him and his party and his sycophants constantly promoting ideas that will attack it (the Constitution).”
After even more of Levin’s high-pitched hostility, Hannity asked for his “best strategy” and “what advice do you have for the Republicans? How do they battle this guy?”
Here’s where Armchair General Levin issued his marching orders. And funny, they sounded a lot like the rhetoric we've heard all during the last four years
I’ll tell you how. Start acting like men. And women. Start toughening up. Start drawing lines and mean it. Just say no, as Nancy Reagan used to say. But just say no to Obama… We have a problem on our hands. …So sometimes you’ve got to make some tough decisions. If it requires shutting down the government a few days, you shut it down. Hell, we shut down the government every weekend! …Well, extend their weekend to Thursday or Friday!
…Most of all, speak out. Tell the American people what you see! Tell the American people what this administration is! Tell them what he’s doing to this country!
…This president has unleashed so many attacks on our system, on our society and it’s obviously quite intentional. That’s what he means by "fundamentally transforming America."
…What we do about it is we dig in and we fight him every step of the way. Whatever he wants, he doesn’t get. When he violates the separation of powers doctrine and starts legislating by fiat, we go into court. If we lose in court, we take him to court on another matter. We have got to use the political brass knuckles. We have to slow him down because this man’s in a hurry, he doesn’t like the Constitutional system, he doesn’t like separation of powers, he doesn’t like checks and balances, so we have to do everything we can politically, legally, to slow him down.
And I have every reason to believe that Levin will sacrifice himself for the good of the country just as much as he has in the past.

“Willingness to work with the President is beauty in the eye of the beholder.”
Well, when the Senate Minority Leader says something like, “the single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president”, that doesn’t sound like "willingness to work with the President, IMHO.
“We didn’t want much of what was done in the first two years of the President’s last term, such as the failed stimulus and the unaffordable ObamaCare Act . . .”
LOL — I love how you wingnuts keep referring to the stimulus as “failed.” As the President said in his SOTUA, for it to have “failed”, there sure were a lot of repub politicians present at the ribbon cuttings that resulted from it.
One other thing: do you know what nearly 40% of the economic stimulus package consisted of?
A: tax cuts.
So, if you persist in claiming the stimulus “didn’t work”, you’re saying, in effect, that tax cuts don’t work — and, by extension, that tax cuts for the wealthiest 1% don’t work.
Hope the GOP keeps that in mind during the budget negotiations.
We elected enough Republicans in 2010 to stop the madness. Why should we compromise further now?
Perhaps you should look up the term “compromise.” Contrary wingnut belief, it does NOT mean, “do everything WE say.”
“mj: what death threats? jeesh”
Willingness to work with the President is beauty in the eye of the beholder. IMO, Republicans should not compromise any more than they already have in passing continuing resolutions instead of budgets, agreeing to increase taxes on those who already pay the vast majority of the taxes, increasing the debt limit, extending unemployment compensation, etc. We didn’t want much of what was done in the first two years of the President’s last term, such as the failed stimulus and the unaffordable ObamaCare Act, when Democrats controlled both houses of congress. We elected enough Republicans in 2010 to stop the madness. Why should we compromise further now?
What compromises has the President made?
mj: what death threats? jeesh
If your ears are too sensitive for the “hatred” you hear here, I’d recommend you NOT visit TheFoxNation.com — where there are death threats made against the President regularly . . .
The subject of this thread is how Mark Levin is spending his manure and with Sean’s help and is only interested in selling his Obama bashing to a small percentage to bring attention to self-promote his radio show to generate ratings for higher advertising revenue for his financial benefit.
I’ve said many times, President Obama should declare tomorrow “DON’T JUMP OFF A CLIFF” day. That would eliminate the ignorant teabaggers.
Wow, Marky Mark — would you have been happier if the Supreme Court appointed him instead?
“…This president has unleashed so many attacks on our system, on our society and it’s obviously quite intentional.”
You’re right, Marky — especially when he
- suspended the writ of habeas corpus
- wiretapped US citizens without warrants
- and issued “signing statements”, detailing which parts of the law he would and wouldn’t enforce
OOPS —wrong president …
“I demand a contrite and sincere apology for that.
Dino was cute.
And he was always keeping Fred’s couch warm for him after a hard day’s work."
Let’s not forget that Dino ALSO worked hard all day ferrying around Jesus from one place to another.
Hey dillweed! You DO realize the country had a chance to do JUST THAT only a few months ago and they chose to ‘Just say no.’ to YOU and your ilk.
These people are like puppies. You got to SHOW them the stick before you throw it.
I forgot where I heard it or read it, but it went something like: ‘If Pres. Obama took a ’Pro Breathing’ stance. American politics would be a 1 party system in less than 3 minutes.’
Yup! Eisenhower pointed that out in his farewell address. America had Gone Empire after WW2 and that killed the Republic. That was Ike’s message.
The Tea Nuts are not happy with Hannocchio’s cozy relationship with the anti-Tea Party Rove. The Tea Nuts have vowed to take down anyone associated with Rove, including Fox “News” Channel, Nixon-trainee Roger Ailes, and Hannocchio.
The impersonator will not help their ratings because the Tea Nuts have already cut off Fox “News” from their cable.
The Stop Hannity Express encourages all the masses to ask a Tea Nut their opinion of the cozy relationship between Hannocchio and Rove. Do say, ‘cozy relationship.’
Coming down the pipe:
1. The extreme right turns against Hannocchio.
2. Hannocchio is forced to choose which side he’s on.
3. Hannocchio is labeled a traitor by a unlikely source.
4. Hannocchio’s dark side is revealed.
NOTE TO HANNITY
Don’t forget to send a dozen of roses to Coulter for Valentine’s Day.
Karl Rabbies was out there comparing Marco Rubio to Dear Leader Ronald Raygun, but Sean Hannity turned to Mark Levin for his insight.
They, Levin, Billdo, Krapshamsters, and every other bass awckward wignut keep bitchin’ about Europe.
Cheebuz… where do those wingnut morons think the capitalist system started?
I could go through a laundry list of DEMOCRATIC achievements originating in Europe.
And I can go over the same laundry list of stupid measures originated by the bass ackward gNOpigs limiting the FREEDOM they pretend to defend.
Number 1. Those morons keep saying the country was founded to be a THEOCRACY. ONE NATION UNDER dog.
Then you have the same bass ackward buyble thumpin’ morons sayin’ all our problems are because we have strayed away from dog and the constipation.
I am still looking for that verse in the buyble about “the right to bear arms”
