Michelle Malkin Dominates On The View

malkinsbookBuy it.

Michelle Malkin appeared on The View to promote her new book, Culture of Corruption; Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks and Cronies.

She left the three liberal harpies babbling …”but but but – wasn’t the Bush administration corrupt, too?”, and as Michelle would later quip, “You know you’ve won the argument when the ladies of the View are reduced to arguing how corrupt Team Obama is, and not whether”.

The video, courtesy of Hot Air:

The Anchoress was “surprised at how tame the gals seem around Malkin”, and I would agree….no doubt they were well aware that they were encountering a determined firebrand who was in full command of the facts, (unlike themselves).

But at least they were willing to have her on to discuss the book.

Unlike  the intellectually dishonest Bill Maher, who held the book up to ridicule and scorn, without actually confronting any of the points made within its 400+ pages:

Michelle again:

Maher sneers that Obama has only been in office six months.

Hey, Einstein: That. Is. The. Freaking. Point.

You know, I get the impression that Bill Maher isn’t all that terribly bright.

UPDATE:

Later on, Michelle appeared on the Glenn Beck Show, where they focused on Obama’s czars:

Thanks to Glenn Beck Clips.

UPDATE II:

Greta Van Susteren covered the Ohio tea party on her show, tonight, and interviewed one of the organizers, Jason Rink:

  1. Uh, what corruption in the Bush administration was that airhead refering too? What a bunch of dopes. Pretty sad commentary that not only do these harpies have a show on TV, some actually take what they say seriously.

    Sad.

  3. Deb, you didn’t really expect Maher to produce an actual, logical argument against something he reflexively hates, did you? I’d bet the rent money he hasn’t done more than read the jacket copy of Malkin’s book.

    Maher is as close to an intellectual vacuum as can be observed in human flesh. He’s a bundle of nerves and tics, nothing more. A Martian, observing you and Maher together, would conclude that Maher is a representative of a lesser species. To expect anything other than vacuous venality from him is taking the short end of a long bet.

  11. “Harpies”? “Windbags”? Wow – you really are pieces of work aren’t you – cutting edge of civilised discourse. Your blog is a perfect example of everything that is wrong with conservative politics over the last decade. You don’t bother to engage with actual discussion of legislative issues, you attack (or block) everybody that disagrees with you. Granted – there are many on the left who similarly do not understand how to argue – name calling is the norm on the internet! There has to be more to argument than simply standing in the way of change and believing that everybody is an idiot or corrupt. Empty rantings about non-existent socialism against a party that is actually centrist (the Dems – you’ve never had a left party) simply don’t cut it. Nor do nutty/racist conspiracy theories about the birthplace or agenda of your current president. For instance, I am amazed at the moronic support of extremely wealthy healthcare companies by many people who need decent care and are not getting it. Their arguments? – talking points given to them by the very healthcare companies who are screwing them. Lies fed by the same liars who were uncovered in the nineties. If you have a problem – propose a better solution. Personally I’m not holding my breath for any evidence of rational discussion here.

    Empty rantings about non-existent socialism against a party that is actually centrist (the Dems – you’ve never had a left party)

    That’s a common and nonsensical argument that I’ve seen Eric Alterman make. It obviously depends on where you define “center,” and in this country, “center” is between Keynesian capitalism and free market capitalism. That puts a public option health care plan on the left.

    I am amazed at the moronic support of extremely wealthy healthcare companies by many people who need decent care and are not getting it.

    Why do you use “extremely wealthy” as a pejorative? And “health insurance” does not equal “healthcare” (sic). Most of us support the current health care system because we are getting decent care. Duh.

    Both statements are obvious based on your inane attempts at a rational argument. Democratic socialists, much like their liberal counterparts here in the US, can’t be bothered with simple things like facts, economics and personal responsibility. No, they answer to a much higher calling, social justice and the way they want things to be.

    Worse, they don’t want to work for anything, they want others to provide for them while they simultaneously try to tell productive members of society why they are evil and need to be controlled. In your twisted world, it is our job to provide for those “less fortunate” and you want to set the rules of how we should do it. Not buying, chuckles.

    >>Jackstraw – well, who cares what you think, since you don’t.

    Is your irony meter broken? A left wing troll comes onto a conservative site and proceeds to lecture us in how to act and what to think and you think anybody gives a damn what you have to say? Good lord you are a moron.

    Take a good hard look at what is happening in the US right now Malky. Not what you want to happen, what is happening. Obama is plummeting in the polls, he has a worse approval rating than Bush did at a similar time in his administration. Obama’s stimulus plan is cratering as anybody with a basic understanding of economics knew it would. Unemployment is skyrocketing. Our debt is piling up at a rate unprecedented in US history to a level that is unsustainable. Cap and Trade, designed to counter the myth of man made global warming is being exposed for the scam it always was and his healthcare plan is on life support. Race relations are sinking to levels we haven’t seen in years.

    None of this is surprising. In fact, many of us “stupid” conservatives predicted all of this before the election while lefties were stuck on the stupid platform of social justice, empathy, economic redistribution and electing a wholly unknown and unqualified man strictly on the basis of his skin color and hopey changey rhetoric. In other words, your platform.

    Your ideas, such as they are, have always failed and will always fail because they are based on wishes and hopes and not logic.

    That, for once, is at least partly true. There are many other factors, like the administration terrifying business owners and Wall Street in the first quarter of the year, but this is the first thing you’ve said that was close to being right.

    Further, the fools who led you to where you are have put every western country at risk of going under.

    That’s more indicative of the existence of fools in “every western country,” than in the US.

    Since I live in a country where an economic stimulus plan has worked (so far)

    And now you start slipping off the rails again. The argument over the stimulus is not that a good package couldn’t work, but that the stimulus package as proposed was inefficient and too slow at creating jobs to provide much relief. And, of course, that it was a huge chunk of deficit spending that would have long-term effects on inflation and the budget.

    There are approaches that work more quickly and efficiently, and these have been used successfully in the past. The adminstration’s package ignored those approaches and put together a social worker’s dream stimulus package.

    Unfortunately, social workers don’t know anything about economics.

    What precise economic theory are you an adherent of?

    I think most of us are von Misians. I personally am more of a neo-von Misian (yeah, I made that term up), believing that government intervention is unavoidable under certain circumstances.

    Finally, your penultimate paragraph gives you away, sport – you and your ilk don’t enjoy being called racists, but that’s exactly what you are.

Why are you calling Obama a liar?

Do you have a news letter I could subscribe to?

    >>Further, the fools who led you to where you are have put every western country at risk of going under.

    So then you are willing to admit that Australia along with most of the western world rises and falls with the fortunes of America? You’re correct. And you’re welcome. Without the engine of America Australia would still be a barren penal colony.

    >>Since I live in a country where an economic stimulus plan has worked (so far) I think I am perfectly able to comment on this

    Who exactly said we didn’t need a stimulus? What we didn’t need was THIS stimulus specifically because it isn’t a stimulus. It was a plan crafted in Congress to reward Dem constituents. It is doing less than nothing and is adding billions more to our debt.

    >>Incidentally, what makes your “Greed is good” ideology so special? What precise economic theory are you an adherent of? There is no evidence of any understanding or argument regarding economic theory in any of your posts.

    I thought you said you knew something about America? Obama and the liberals ran a campaign largely predicated on America redeeming herself by electing a black man. This was no secret but an overt ploy to capitalize on white guilt and energizing the African American base. It worked overwhelmingly with Obama getting over 97% of the black vote for example. Now that is racist.

    In any case I would have thought you and your ilk would have learned your lesson from the Great Beer Summit. Crying racism over and over is not working for you clowns anymore. I judge people on the content of their character and not the color of their skin which is why I could support Condi Rice, Collin Powell before he turned into a squish and even Michael Steele when he’s not busy jamming a foot in his mouth and not Obama who is a far left radical who spent his early adult years at the foot of a black separatist and who is driving this country into the ground with absurd programs that are rapidly dividing this country.

    Jack Straw was commenting on the tendencies of the aging hippies toward self-loathing and an undeserved white guilt which drove many of them to vote for a man who, if not for the color of his skin and his rhetoric, which included the promise of a “post-racial America” (invoked to get votes on alternating days when he and his supporters were not busily playing the race card), would have been quickly dismissed as the inexperienced and shallow candidate that he really is. You speak of our country as having put every western country at risk, yet do not understand where the root of that truth resides. Our elected officals have willingly passed a “stimulous bill” that spends very little of its record expenditures this year, and when it does start spending on its “shovel-ready” jobs, it spends very little on permanent jobs, or jobs that have an real impact on the infrastructure. The unemployment rate is climbing as tax revenue is falling because Democrats persist in the belief that any one who actually pays taxes is “Rich”, and therefore deserves to pay the taxes which are then used to buy more votes from those who do not. Then they scratch their heads and wonder why this is so, when the people they target make cuts in the numbers of people they employ in order so that they can stay in business and take care of their own families, thus reducing their “taxable economic profile” and cutting the amount of taxes that they pay, which leads to the net effect of tax revenues being significantly reduced. Not really a mystery to a person who is part of the class being targeted by the Dumbacratic party, but an unexplained anomaly for the party that intends to use punative tax policies to fund Disneyland for Freeloaders.

I’m amused in an I-can’t-believe-these-people-hold-office sort of way by Kucinich, Kerry, and Waters. I disapprove of most of the rest of the Democrats, though a few aren’t too bad. But I’m not alone in despising GOP officials like Snowe, Collins, Graham, and formerly Specter.

    Obama’s administration as both commie and fascist

    We’ve been using the terms in their colloquial sense, because we’re not particularly concerned about offending commies or fascists. The facts that Obama:

    o is trying to implement major new controls on industry, has meddled in the internal workings of companies,

    o is devoted toward redistributing the wealth of individuals,

    o is going to require all of us to carry health insurance,

    o is going to require that that insurance conform to a central agency’s criteria,

    o is going to establish centralized medical guidelines to define our courses of treatment,

    o is putting the country in the position of having a government interest in the way we live our lives, etc.,

    are all reasons we feel that he is moving toward centralization of authority, government control of industry, redistribution of wealth, and intrusion into our lives.

  36. >>Not buying, guys.

    Funny, I don’t remember anyone selling.

    You decided to come on here, as liberal trolls are want to do on conservative sites, and with no evidence save for that which you attempted to create accuse us of being racist and knee jerk reactionaries with little or no understanding of how economies and government operates. Ironically, your posts and our responses have shown the opposite to be true.

    If you wish to go on believing in the face of overwhelming historical evidence that policies you support will work then have at it. That doesn’t mean any of us have to. If you want to believe that we are all racists because we don’t support what Obama is doing and despite evidence that we support conservatives of all colors and genders, you are welcome to that belief as well.

    I plan on giving your beliefs all the consideration they are due.

  38. Let’s talk about health care reform and the lies that have been perpetrated and nurtured by Michelle Malkin.

    Let’s be honest and add up the lies that have been perpetrated by the insurance industry and ultra-conservatives nuts like Malkin who want to see the administration fail, even if it means hurting their own family, not to mention the nation. Most of those lies have targeted our senior citizens and their deepest fears.

    1. Death Panels: This is so absurd, it barely even warrants a response. The ‘end of life’ counseling item was added to the House bill by a Republican (Grassley) and it is something which has already existed in previous health care legislation. It simply means that any meetings between a family and a doctor concerning important decisions, such as hospice care, would be covered. The only “death panels” we have now are the ones owned and operated by the private, for-profit insurance companies, which decide who will be covered and for what. Use or imply the idea of euthanasia and seniors will definitely get grouchy.

    2. You don’t get eye care till you go blind: A curious claim by opponents of health care reform, since neither bill being considered mentions blindness, macular degeneration, or sight. Since the vast majority of people who suffer from macular degeneration are elderly white women, this claim has been an effective scare tactic.

    3. Socialized medicine: This is a rather stupid claim, given that the government wouldn’t be taking over anything and that no plan currently being considered would put any doctors, nurses, technicians or therapists on the government payroll. Genuine socialized medicine precludes any choices at all, and that is obviously not the case with either of the reform bills. What we have right now is a form of corporate socialism, where a handful of insurance company executives make decisions about who will be denied coverage and how high premiums will go. Of course, Malkin calls this “capitalism at its best.”

    4. “I don’t want the government messin’ with my Medicare!” An amazing complaint, considering that Medicare is administered by the federal government, and that most seniors are quite happy with their coverage. Medicare is in financial trouble, not because of government mismanagement, but because of sky-rocketing medical costs. Unless those costs are brought under control, Medicare will go into the red, taxes will go up and the deficit will continue to explode. If you’re a genuine conservative, health care reform should be at the top of your “Things to Do” list. But Michelle Malkin wants it defeated because it would mean handing a political victory over to a black president.

    5. Rationing of medical care for the elderly: There is no such provision in either of the bills currently being considered. In fact, Medicare would remain untouched. Of course, reducing health care costs across the board would ensure that Medicare will avoid bankruptcy. This is yet another scare tactic Malkin has fed into that has zero basis in fact.

    6. The public option will drive people away from private insurers, and take away our choices. Only if private insurers refuse to reduce their operating costs and lower premiums. If they can’t compete with the public option, then they should go out of business. The whole notion that a profit motive should dictate the quality of health care in the United States is absurd anyway. There are plenty of other industries where making money is good for business and good for the country. But Michelle Malkin doesn’t realize that we’re talking about people’s lives here and the fact that millions of hard-working Americans are going bankrupt every year because they can’t afford decent medical coverage or any coverage at all because of a previous condition.

    Malkin, like many critics of health care reform, are liars who are driven by anger that we have a black man sitting in the White House. The others are just misinformed people who know nothing about the actual bills and have bought into Malkin’s scare tactics. As many commentators are saying now, this debate is no longer about health care reform. It’s about President Obama. That’s why we have Michelle Malkin blogs and morons carrying assault weapons to presidential events.

    Which should read: “If they can’t compete with the taxpayer-subsidized public option which will never be allowed to fail regardless of the real costs, then they should go out of business.

  41. More funny:

    The whole notion that a profit motive should dictate the quality of health care in the United States is absurd anyway.

    First, everything is motivated by profit, personal or corporate. Second, insurance does not equal quality of health care. Third, you can substitute “government committee” for “profit motive” in that sentence and come up with a much more accurate statement.

  42. Unless those costs are brought under control, Medicare will go into the red, taxes will go up and the deficit will continue to explode.

    Not so much funny as stupid. Cost control of health care doesn’t equal health care reform, and it certainly doesn’t equate to Obamacare.

    Medicare already has many of the “cost-savings” measures proposed by the administration, and its costs are out of control. Why is more government involvement the path to a solution.

    Malkin, like many critics of health care reform, are liars who are driven by anger that we have a black man sitting in the White House.

    When you have no argument, cry “Racist!!”

  44. A curious claim by opponents of health care reform, since neither bill being considered mentions blindness, macular degeneration, or sight.

    This is a sterling example of why conservatives and liberals can’t find a common ground – liberals talk about the bill and conservatives talk about the downstream consequences. Certainly the eye care problem is real, and an excellent example of what happens when the government takes a direct interest in health care and cost control.

    The dishonesty in the above statement is that while the bills don’t discuss macular degeneration explicitly, they certainly establish the committees who will discuss it and decide if the treatment is cost effective on a societal basis.

    Again, this is the Left talking about today, while conservatives are talking about tomorrow. Conservatives see the inevitable path: government, finding that it’s proposed cost control measures are useless, will then begin defining health care compensation rates. Nationalizing health care providers is then a much smaller step.

    What we have right now is a form of corporate socialism

  46. Rationing of medical care for the elderly: There is no such provision in either of the bills currently being considered.

    The biggest lie by omission of all. The whole strategy for making the system affordable is to draft the young into the system and to provide guidelines for recommended treatments that will avoid “wasting” money on “pointless” care for the elderly. It is not explicitly stated in the bill, but the legislative mechanisms and cost pressures are established by the bill, and the President has clearly pointed to seniors’ health care costs as an area where expenditures can be cut.

  47. Johnrj08-

    Would you like to tell me what the unfunded liability of the “gov’t option”, Medicare, is today? Is this your idea of fair competition, when a gov’t agency is allowed to run up multi-trillion dollar deficits and just kick the fiscal can down the road? Do liberals have no shame or understanding of what they are talking about?

    Your goal is to put even more people on “free, gov’t healthcare”, a system that is already a financial disaster and getting worse by the day while most of our population ignores the consequences we will all face from this fiscal fairy tale, that about sum it up? Why should anyone sentient being take anything you or your cohorts on the left say seriously when none of you are ready to address the costs of your proposals in an honest way?
