Lol, well say what you want about Murdoch's media empire, but at least he raised his well. :cool: Meh, who knows how really "libertarian" this guy really is though...

Well then the source would be the video of the show. I watched it before and Russert never said that.

I think you're thinking of Morning Joe

It was Joe S's son. He lives in Florida. Joe used to be a Senator or a Representative here. No Ron Paul but pretty good.

Kludge as to that quote, damn if that kid said that and claims to be libertarian he is a dumbass. I didn't see it. Oh and Yeah Joe Scarborough's kids, yeah one was a Ron Paul fan, but a friend of mind cuts all the Scarborough kids hair (I live in pcola) and to quote her "they think their shit don't stink." In other words they are spoiled brats and bitches.

Just like Neal Boortz is a Libertarian, and Bill O'Reilly is an independent...:rolleyes:

I read an article a while back about Faux News may shift toward a more environmentalist friendly approach, because RM's son (the one that was already slowly taking over) was an environmentalist. Anyone else see this?

Maybe when he takes over FOX, it will stop sucking so horribly and turn into something worth watching. It would be really sick if he kicked off the neoconservatards and brought in libertarian pundits instead.

Turned libertarian just in time for the country to be getting pissed at the dems and repubs.

Here's the tell:

"economically conservative but libertarian on people's individual rights."

"BUT?" Where's the "but" between economically conservative and libertarian on individual rights?

Ah, here it is:

"I think taxes on cigarettes are the most outrageous example of the Nanny State. It would be one thing if every penny went to researching lung cancer . . ."

What he's saying is, he's for neither. Sorry to be hard on the poor boy. At least he has the guts to claim to be libertarian. The first step is admitting. The second step is to read The Road to Serfdom. Or Atlas Shrugged. Or the primer, Economics in One Lesson, Hazlitt.

He "thinks" he is conservative, but probably is a neocon.

He says he is libertarian on people's individual rights.

It is a bit difficult to separate the two.
