Mark Levin goes nuclear over Romney’s inability to explain conservatism

Mark Levin spent part of his first hour playing Milton Friedman clips and explaining why Romney’s position on minimum wage is wrong, to educate the man and us. But as you’ll see in his monologue below, it frustrates him very much that he feels he has to do so.

He starts by playing a clip of Romney today that he was very much unimpressed with, which then turned into this amazing monologue where he explained why he is frustrated with Romney’s lack of conservatism.



This is a MUST LISTEN. Here is a partial quote from his monologue but you should really listen to the full clip below:

Ladies and Gentlemen, the country is going to hell and there’s only one party in a position to stop it and I’ll be damned if I’m going to sit on my ass like everybody else and just wave and just accept this! If the Republican Party cannot nominate somebody who understands basic capitalism and can discuss it without apologizing for it, if we can’t nominate somebody who will stop talking about class warfare and this class and that class, but talk about Americans, then it’s over! We’re doomed!

That’s why I’m passionate about this. That’s why I’m upset about this. I’m scared to death what’s going to happen in the next year, 2,3,4,5. I see it coming if we don’t change course! You do too! Look at the Occupy movements. I see the riots! I see the violence! I see the deterioration of our society! I see the bankrupting of Social Security and Medicare! I see the unsustainability of what’s going on and so do you!

So we can’t sit here like twiddle dee and twiddle dumb because somebody is running as a Republican who 15 years ago wouldn’t even do that! And we got to pay attention to this stuff folks!

I should not have to play clips of Milton Friedman for Mitt Romney to explain his problem with his position on minimum wage. I should not have to argue with Mitt Romney’s appointed hacks to explain the problem with RomneyCare. I shouldn’t have to explain to Mitt Romney why he shouldn’t feel guilty about his wealth and that he can explain to the American people more broadly why we want wealth creation in this country!

Because only that way can we lower unemployment. Only that way can we save the housing market. Only that way, through capitalism, wealth creation, productivity, can the American dream be returned.

Now if I can explain this in literally 3 minutes, why can’t he?!?!

And I know the answer to it and you’re not going to like it. Because he’s a corporatist and there’s a difference between a capitalist and a corporatist.

I urge anyone who really cares about the future of this country to go to YouTube and type “Milton Friedman” in the search box. Hell, I’ll make it easy for you:

http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=milton+friedman&oq=Milton&aq=0&aqi=g10&aql=&gs_sm=c&gs_upl=154l750l0l5159l5l5l0l0l0l0l505l1947l3-3.1.1l5l0

And then just watch them. Take your time. Just go video by video and watch as many as you can stand. Then watch some with Thomas Sowell. When you get tired of him after awhile search for “Mark Levin” and watch those videos.

That’s what I do for fun on the weekends.

You’re totally correct Mr. Levin it is true the Republican Party Elites CANNOT/WILL NOT elect a real CONSERVATIVE to the primaries list and as RUSH says they will weed them out,crush them,backstab them etc.Only a REAL CONSERVATIVE like Newt Gingrich will have the guts and willingness to make the BIG CHANGES needed to steer America away from the cliff to destruction! I’m sorry but I don’t buy into the LIES told by “The Elites”, that a third party would just split the vote, more and more it seems like there is no other REAL CHOICE but to start a Real Conservative Party,after all how much SATISFACTION are we getting NOW! We cannot wait for a few generations for Tea Partiers and new Conservatives to rise through the ranks because it will all be over for America by then!

The other top two candidates are not any better than Romney. Let’s get back to reality here. And they fare far worse than Romney in electoral polls. Mitt is neither a leftist nor a dictator. I am not saying he is a good candidate. But he is the best in the race for beating Obama. It doesn’t do any good to nominate other candidates, whose numbers show they cannot beat Obama.

Romney can’t explain it in three minutes or five hours because he doesn’t believe in conservativism. If the GOP thinks they can unite the party to rally behind Mitt-Twit they are completely out of their minds and will be finished as a serious political party.

Levin is such a radical. These ridiculous economic arguments about the minimum wage have no basis in reality. Having worked for an unpaid internship myself in 2008, there’s no shortage of unpaid and lowly-paid grant-based apprenticeships and internships for young people. The minimum wage ensure that ADULTS who need REAL PAYCHECKS to survive make at the very least a fair wage.

Being a radical is only a bad thing if you’re a radical for tyranny. Mark Levin is a radical for liberty, which is great. Yes, there are internships, but that’s irrelevant because an unpaid substitute for a paid job is a poor argument for the minimum wage, since it proves the point of those who are against the minimum wage, such that the minimum wage has so destroyed those jobs and the only way that people can get any experience is to take unpaid work, where pre-minimum wage generations used to have paid work. Your claim about there being loads of internships doesn’t take into account that internships still cost employers money to have them, even without wage factoring into the overhead costs. Not everyone can take an internship, and even if they went on pathetically meager government welfare then they’d probably be on it for 1-2 years before gaining… Read more »

The Romney supporter doesn’t care that Romney pioneered the same-sex marriage movement, is a strong supporter of same-sex rights, and was the first governor in U.S. history to install same-sex marriage in a state.

You talk about Mormon propaganda being propagated here by a few, but the Anti-Mormon propaganda here is nauseating.

That’s very selective. You’re talking about Newt Gingrich, one of the old heroes of the Reagan years, the man once called by the haters in the media “the Hard-line leader of the conservative Republicans”, depicted as hard right. The same guy who was picking fights with people and even challenging Reagan for not being Reagan enough. His scores amongst conservative groups are higher than Santorum. Mind you, he’s definitely gone mushy since he hasn’t had to run for public office for a lonnnng time. But despite his flaws, his heart is definitely conservative. As for Santorum, he has all of the flaws you pin on Gingrich but none of the benefits: http://www.redstate.com/erick/2012/01/06/what-a-big-government-conservative-looks-like/ That right there is the reason why Santorum harps on his family image and always puts scorn on his opponents.

Ryan, If I could adjust your comment? Catholicism was the original Cristian denomination. Unfortunately, through corruption of church leaders over the centuries and inventing out of thin air, doctrine has been nothing less than absurd has caused the Roman Catholic Church to not resemble anything that Peter and Paul had ever envisioned. If you ask if the Catholic Church is Christian, I would agree with you. Conversely, if you say that the individuals following the teaching in Christ within the Catholic faith are not Christians is taking things a step too far. I would consider them all brothers in Christ. Remember, we all follow and believ Christ is the Savior but it’s how the faiths reach salvation which are different. I personally left the Catholic Church a number of years ago for many of doctrines that simply didn’t line up with the Bible but I still consider my freinds who… Read more »

Mitt Romney was born super rich, his life was paved by his Father. He inherited his Dad’s rolodex. His life in Wall Street was in levergaed buy-outs, one of the sleaziest forms of capitalism, not much nicer than chrony capitalism. Bain Capital’s deals were not venture capitalism they were sure-things. Mitt didn’t create anything, he didn’t risk anything. The first thing a Mitt/Bain deal did, was to take over a company, make massive loans in that company’s name (on it’s credit NOT Bain’s), then pay off Bain’s fee plus the most massive profit they could squeeze from the company/client. Wether the company failed or succeeded, Bain Capital was immunized from losses. That is NOT venture capilalism. THAT is why Mitt does NOT understand BASIC Conservative economic principles. His whole life in entangled in the world of elite, super rich, blue blooded people that leech off the system growing and protecting… Read more »

And, I don’t know about y’all, but something seems very fishy. Something seems very off. I really have to question why people are attacking Newt as if he was Newt Palin. Do these Coultergeists, Jennifer rubins, Hewitts, medveds, et al realize that their livelihood is based on us right-wing roobs buying the crap they sell? Does Coultergeist expect all of us to rush out and buy her next dumb book? That witch Peggy Noonan supported Obama! And she’s back on the right-wing bandwagon hocking some other book of hers.

http://biggovernment.com/cjohnson/2012/02/01/authors-romney-denied-free-olympic-tickets-to-9-11-widows-orphans-gave-them-to-utah-legislators/ from the article: “After living in Utah for three years, Romney flirted with running for office in the Beehive State. He even reportedly contemplated running as a Democrat, though in the post-Olympics buzz there was no office available until 2004 which was too late for someone riding the successes of the the Games. Still it isn’t too much of a stretch to consider Romney running in Utah as a Democrat. Romney would likely have taken on Bob Bennett, then among the longest surviving senators in the Congress as a Democrat or replaced him on the Republican ticket like Senator Mike Lee did in 2010. In the shadow of 9-11, Congress had already earmarked $200 million to make the Games safe. After the attacks, Senator Robert Bennett of Utah appropriated $34.4 million.

While you may not like it, it is the hand you are dealt, so play it well. Remember, you can influence the downline elections and ensure thousands of conservatives are elected going from the Senate down to the local alderman. If enough conservatives are elected downline then the political culture will change for generations, as there will be a wide and deep talent pool to draw from (someone elected now could still be in office in 2030). You can also ensure that you work to unseat the establishment Republicans by working to take over the party at the local level ward by ward. Think ahead to 2016 and beyond. If the “one” is reelected, he will discover a solid mass of opposition all the way downline, all working to undo his legacy and Progressivism in general.

“You can also ensure that you work to unseat the establishment Republicans by working to take over the party at the local level ward by ward.”

This is the “feeder” system and, at least around here, is far from conservative. I would best describe my local republican gang as self serving progressives. It is where we can have the most effect by helping true conservatives get in primaries.

Romney is not “squishy”. He is a duplicitous dangerous man, “owned” by global financial intersts who will pursue an agenda to further destroy our liberty by further growing central government.

And yes it is a very long term game – our enemy knows this.

Fannie and Freddie and Community Investment Rules caused the mortgage crisis. I believe the best explanation will be found at southparkstudios.com (really it is the best) Additionally there was some market manipulation and shorting that came from over seas.

GJ, There were a plethora of culpable parties involved with the crisis. The investment banks contributed and fueld and already bad situation starting with securitization. That spilled over into stripping o securitizations into A tranches (super secured all the way through first loss tranches). This subsequently evolved into the investment banks moving into more exotics such insurance written by AIG and others on the various tranches. This was followed by derivatives such as options and swaps written on the performance of the CDO’s and CLO’s (going long or short without actually owning the underlying debt obligation (CDS). Additionally, the ratings agencies came in to the picture early on and exacerbated the problems by applying ratings based on historical losses. Their feeling was that if you slice and dice sh*t loans, you could lower the risk. Sh*t is shit. Fannie and Freddie came in later in the game when the GSE’s… Read more »

Newt describes himself as a Wilsonian Progressive. His ideas are more conservative than BHO, but he would have government running more voter driven solutions, which will be better, but it will still leave the government command and control in place. For example currently the government is pushing for abortion and against gun control. If instead the federal government forced everyone to have babies and mandated everyone own and be proficient with a gun, it would still be Big Government.

Yeah you got a candidate that actually said he’s a progressive and then you don’t hear Glenn Beck jumping up and down screaming and hitting pots and pans, if this guy his the nominee I’ll vote for Ron Paul… Remember if Romney or Obama is the president, George Soros wins…

You may have your suspicions about Beck. But your hyperbole is not backed up by concrete examples that confirm your suspicions.

I appreciated Glenn Beck’s Friday shows focused on American History… and his support of Israel – but all of the talk about storing food comes from Mormonism because my Mormon friends in high school were doing that back in the 1960’s… it is part of their conversion effort because if there is ever a crisis they want people dependent on them — and then when he said he would vote for Ron Paul before Newt, that sealed it for me. I cancelled by GBTV subscription and I am done. No more Glenn Beck for me! He is off the rails – I think the wealth and celebrity has gone to his head… (and Ann Coulter is right there with him!)

I have my own concerns about Glenn. I find he starts to go off the rails, then comes back to making sense. He’s a bit erratic, but haven’t heard anything that clinched it for me as it has for you, and to the extent that I’ll swear him off. But I’m watching, watching. Trust but verify.

One difference between Coulter and Beck-Beck stands by his principles, whether you agree or disagree with him. Coulter blows in the wind toward whatever RINO that may favour her with a smile. Same goes with any talking head over @ FOX News these days.

One point there-thanks to Beck, would we have even knows who the “Spooky Dude” is and what he has done throughout countries in Europe?

What does this have to do with Levin’s rant?

I personally do not wish to make this a battle along religious grounds. Granted I’m not a Mormon and don’t wish to be. I will tackle him on his leadership and conservative principles which are zero from where I sit. Yesterday it was I don’t care about poor people or whatever, it boiled down to a class warfare gambit. Awful !!! Just awful !!! We have the safety net !! Awful, dreadful. The poor can remain poor they have a safety net. Awful. Today it is he is in favor of the min wage. Once again awful….all you Romney followers here is your man. Ecce homo !!! Behold the man!! How do you even begin to defend this? I am utterly speechless. The only Reagan conservative that was actually responsible for getting a republican majority in the house has been smeared and you cheer, lied about and you cheer. Bread… Read more »

I am not only worried about the candidate that the GOP wants to push down our throat! I am worried because there is another dark cloud looming in the distance and that is going to be the Iran/Israel war. Against all odds, it seems to me that the months ahead are going to prove very crucial and G-d helps us, we need Him desperately to help us elect the right leader that not only knows but can read the lines about the future of Israel and that of our country!

First, the candidates have to acknowledge that obama is not naive and knows exactly what he’s doing and they need to tell the tale of what a second term obama despotism is going to look like.

Levin is exactly right. Rush told us what a second term of obama is going to be like. Obama’s poll numbers are still uncomfortably high, and if Romney wins the nomination with this piss poor demonstration of leadership, we’re screwed.

You notice the percentage of people who approve of Obama is the same percentage of people who pay no federal income taxes and have at least one household member who depends on a government program. You can be sure if Obama gets another term, those numbers will increase and we will never be able to elect a small government Constitutional conservative again!!!

Yes. I say it because if Romney wins the nomination zero is going to rip him apart. It is precisely because these people who are receiving obama’s handouts want that gravy train to keep making stops at their house. zero is going to convince them plus many others that Romney is one percent and “doesn’t care about the poor”.

You and I both know that if zero wins a second term the gravy train is going to derail for most people. Jobs are going to be lost by the score with fewer to pay for the “safety net” which will need to expand by a huge percentage.

Romney is going to be hit so hard with misplaced words like that and his questionable business practices (whether true or not). Romney will not fight zero like he fought the republicans, he will campaign “McCain style” and lose.

True. The Flipper is not a conservative and is the least likely to defeat Obama. It is worth getting angry over.

Best arguement I’ve heard explaining why conservatives should not vote for Mitt Romney. He just put our thoughts to words and nailed it. Now only if Santorum would kindly move aside we might have a chance to dispense with this imitation conservative. People should not just lay down and except this. They should stop listening to the media about electability and vote with there gut. Mitt Romney is not their gut.

I’m scared to death too, Mr. Levin. Absolutely terrified. And, the fact that so many people are jumping on the Romney bandwagon, when he is the weakest candidate, is the biggest reason for my fear. How can these people be so completely uninformed? These so-called wizards of smart? I’m just a woman from the country who clings to the lower tier of the middle class and hopes to hell I can someday work hard and get to the upper tier. How come I can see through Mitt Romney? Through Trump? Through Coulter? Through all these heavy hitters…. and I see failure? You bet I’m scared.

I overheard some liberals today talking about Rmoney and how they are “starting to warm up to him.” Is Rmoney’s “message” working with the left?
