An interesting lead in to the video:

"Bill O'Reilly confronted Colin Powell tonight over his move to the left and charges of racism and intolerance on the 'far right'."

I would say that Powell, politically speaking, has remained pretty rock solid and that, rather, it is the GOP that has moved decidedly That to the right, leaving Powell and other moderate Republicans stranded.

Disagree. Powell has moved away from his own positions of the Bush era. He's also CONSTANTLY bringing up racism these days which p*sses the sh*t out of me given Obama's own cabinet is more white than Bush'.

FWIW, O'Reilly is the BEST interviewer in the political spectrum. He presses harder than almost everyone but is rarely condescending... lastly, he lets the opposition present their point rather than just steamrolling a discussion.

Also, this is the best news regarding fox news in years : http://www.therightscoop.com/mark-le...going-forward/

Yet no one can actually articulate how the gop allegedly shifted so far right since bush that poor Powell is left out

Keep pushing those talking points

Mrke Levin - Sean Hannity's cabin boy. He's nothing more than rightwing hate radio's @sshole du jour.

Mark Levin Gets Canned From WSPD Radio For Lies About Ron Paul, Hilarity Ensues

Submitted by SaveOurSovereignty on Thu, 02/16/2012 - 19:58


Airing Date Feb.15, 2012

One station, WSPD in Toledo Ohio canceled Mark Levin yesterday and was replaced with Free Talk Live. Station director Brian Wilson sent a notice starting with:

"In response to Mark Levin's outrageous diatribes, mis and disinformation slanderously leveled at Ron Paul, Tom Woods, Lew Rockwell (personal and professional friends of mine), I will be exploring other options effective immediately."

and ending with

"If Mark ever gets a grip on his rational self or develops the class and courtesy to apologize to the three gentleman mentioned above, I'll give him another listen."

Mark Levin himself provided a response, which included:

"I've asked my affiliate relations director to write you a cancellation notice given what you have written."

Of course that comment was made after they were already airing Free Talk Live to replace their show, which basically means Levin was saying, "You can't fire me! I quit!"

Free Talk Live was given permission to read the entire inflammatory (but kind of funny) emails on the air, so you can hear the whole thing at the most recent FTL episode:

Labeling Mark Levin a hateful Republican

Do you realize Levin HATED on Romney during the primaries AND THE GENERAL ELECTION? The guy is a constitutional lawyer who hates on the federal government exceeding it's intended scope. He hated on Bush, he hates on gun control pushers like Chris Christy, he hates on Hannity from time to time...... He hates on EVERYBODY who he feels is incorrect. You can make your inane comments about Rush but, in regardless to Levin, you are so far off the map. I would love to see Lair try and push Obama's successes on air with Levin.. would be so comical

Shows what you know

Mark Levin is just another garden-variety POS republican radio thug. People that suck his cack are pathetic sheep who are incapable of forming their own opinions.

Nice to know that you're a big fan. I've always wondered where a whitebread kid like you learned how to hate.

Great to see that you can form such intellectual arguments against the positions I support... I hate when people have to resort to personal attacks because they have nothing intelligent to say...

Your head's jammed up a radio show host's ass, and you want to point the 'intellectual' finger at me?



Did you really just complain about a personal attack? BWAHAHAHAHA

I thought it was a great interview. Im glad Bill has the balls to call people out (unlike 99.99% of the media) and I think Powell handled it very well (as well as took the hint.)

Obama himself admitted that Oreilly interviewing him was the toughest one he has ever done, and that he thought it was an honest interview.

Kind of like the resident libtards, that will agree with ANYTHING that comes out of a libtards mouth.

Sorry son... but all you do is ad hominem attacks. It's your fallback position.

PS: I'm proud to be a whitebread kid with loving parents who taught me perspective, the value of a dollar, and the value of hard work.

PPS: Enjoy your bitter existence. Everyone here recognizes it.

It's a reference back to an infamous Bill O'Reilly video from his earlier years.
