right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.

Like many others, Mr Stewart misses the mark on his understanding of Mr Romney. Just because he's accumulated wealth by hard work and takes advantage of our tax laws (don't we all) doesn't mean that he doesn't understand the plight of folks who might need help. There IS a better way to see that government serves it's people in a more fair manner. Stewart is taking this to the extreme as many others are when they attack Mr Romney in this manner.


Stewart has some good lines, but like here - he tries to be too cute by half. As Squeaky said, he misses the mark since he is a good Democrat. Just another attempt to pile on, but this message doesn't really resonate, just drones on.

I have heard better from Jon Stewart, and I think he also has it wrong because many on the left care about Romney's wealth - envy and class warfare is a big part of the Owebama campaign.

"Just because he's accumulated wealth by hard work and takes advantage of our tax laws (don't we all) doesn't mean that he doesn't understand the plight of folks who might need help."

Feel the understanding:



Understanding from Stewart, but none from the low information voters :(


Stewart does not always defend President Deadbeat, which is why he has some cred. He is even-handed and has called him out before, even after he had been on his show. That helps his ratings.


If giving Obama both credit and criticism makes Stewart more believable, why don't you try it?


Stewart has a different agenda - he'd like to have ratings so he does that.

I am not a lemming, so why don't you walk your talk and do that more often your self ? you have a shortage of honest credit and plain old criticism to say the least...

It would shock the heck out of everyone. I'm not holding my breath, T-S BS.

john stewart is damn funny. i like his shots at the repubs or the dems. i can laugh either way.

we have yet for any of the usual folks here on the left to come on and say, damn that was a funny shot stewart took at the dems.

humor works both ways. stewart uses it skillfully to reveal truth.


PSB - that's why they call them low information voters...

Puget Sound Blathers

yeah, for sure
they can't explain why during the first two years of Obama’s presidency the Dem Congress didn't pass immigration reform, ‘jobs’ bills, tax hikes, etc etc etc.

A real puzzler...can't blame the repubs for stopping those actions from 2008 to 2010.


Come on.... Stewart is a rich liberal comedian. Only a fool doesn't know that. I can't believe anyone takes his views seriously.


He is the leading source for news in the 18-29 age group, so apparently they do. ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN are dull and partisan left. which wears thin on the ADHD predispositioned millenials and they would rather watch Stewart and Colbert.
