Who is that guy and what did they do with Pat? Well, whoever or whatever he is he's right. And I don't live in a world where Pat Robertson is right, so obviously the invasion of the body snatchers has become reality.

So Pat Robertson is urging GOP candidates to bear false witness in the name of a coveted office?

GALATIANS 6: 7-9 is a biatch, Pat.

Pat Robertson's totally right. I mean, there's this book that just came out that says America is in decline because of liberals and non-whites. I think it was written by some guy named Pat Robertson.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: So Pat Robertson is urging GOP candidates to bear false witness in the name of a coveted office?


He didn't encourage lying about other people, and the office isn't owned by any one person, so it's arguably all good as far as the commandments go, yo.

No, he is actually asking them to accept a candidate that supports most of their positions, but not all, rather than lose the election by forcing their candidates to take extreme positions.

But when Pat Robertson is taking on the role of being a voice for reason and moderation in the Republican Party, it is time to just accept that you have fallen through the looking glass.

Oh, let's not get crazy here.

Robertson isn't saying they're wrong. He's saying they're campaigning wrong.

He added: "You appeal to the narrow base and they'll applaud the daylights out of what you're saying and then you hit the general election and they say 'no way' and then the Democrat, whoever it is, is going to just play these statements to the hilt. They've got to stop this! It's just so counterproductive!"

'Ineffective' does not equal 'incorrect." On substance, I'm sure he's still in lockstep with the extremists.

Pretty much.

The Crazy Train vote is high profile right now. Then again, while they've still got some cash left, getting them excited is sort of counterproductive. They aren't going to vote Democratic, no matter what. They are already sewn up, and the constant courting of this base is essentially about ego. About folks who want cheers, who want to hear "Save us!" It isn't good strategy, though it does get some campaign dollars, it makes less and less strategic sense, because, on the end, you HAVE to betray this base if you want to actually get anything done. You have to, because they're too radical and in giving these mush brained idiots what they want, you alienate the rest of the nation--which is what McCain found out too late. Which this field will soon realize as well. Yes, you can win local elections, you might win some seats on the House and the Senate, but that is going to come back on you.

The Crazy Train won't vote for a Democrat, so why pander to them? The only reason is if you like to hear cheers at rallies, and tasting Concession Speech champagne...

That works, too. Its really a restatement of the same idea, though with a much more retributive sense.

You're not gonna see me saying this too often:

Pat Robertson is right.

I heard Pat Robertson on Diane Rehm today while I was out taking deliveries for the store.

It reminded me of this:

Pat Robertson: What's your question, son?
Caller: My question is why do you associate yourself with such racist...
PR: IT DOESN'T MATTER!!!!!
 
2011-10-25 03:22:52 PM
That's why - while I am not a Democrat at all - I stopped being a Republican ages ago.

You see, I have this silly fixation on "Separation of Church and State" that I picked up somewhere.

I see his point (if I understand your point of course). I have a lot of beliefs. The fact that some asshole agrees with some of them does not sully those beliefs.

for a minute i was thinking Pat Buchanon and going, "well that isnt that outrageous for him to ..." then i clicked. then i was horrified.

There is nothing shocking about this statement. It's merely political pragmatism in an effort to gain power.

In other words, Tuesday.

2011-10-25 03:28:34 PM
Well, he's one of the numb-nutz who pushed them so far to the right. He must have a new ghost-written book coming out and wants to get sales up. Note that he doesn't say that the extreme right's positions are wrong, but only that Republicans should stop talking about them so much. That way they can get elected and implement policy based on those extreme positions.

I was just saying, that's what it reminded me of. The guy who called in was asking specifically about past presidential campaigns that Robertson has run/advised on. Robertson didn't answer the question at all - he talked around it a bit and then basically said "IT DOESN'T MATTER AND ANYWAY RONALD REAGAN WASN'T RACIST!!!"

I'm a 700 Club fan, and Pat Robertson fan. Yes, of course I'm a Republican but I wish they'd lay off the gays and the "A" issue.

Pat is moving toward the center. He really has some smart things to say on his show. He can do it as an interested bystander who doens't really have a horse in the race.

True. Also true is the fact that he's pandering to the centrists in hopes they don't vote for the godless Democrats.

700 Club is awesome for one reason and one reason only.

The religious commercials for ridiculous shiat you get during station breaks.
