Mark Levin Attacks Fox’s Dana
Perino: ‘I’m Sick Of The Preening,
Elitist, Country Club Republicans!’

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/3/2013 10:59:31 AM

On his radio show Tuesday night, Mark Levin went after “preening, elitist, country club Republican” Dana Perino for her assertion on Fox’s The Five that Dr. Ben Carson may have hurt his credibility by appearing on too many conservative talk radio shows like Levin’s. After playing a clip of Carson telling Levin that white liberals are “the most racist people there are,” Perino said yesterday that the doctor “burned through so much of his credibility” by appearing on shows of the sort. She argued that if the newfound conservative hero is interested in a

Comments:
I sure don´t disagree with him. Perino was way out of line in criticizing Dr. Carson. She seemed to hold such contempt for him. Those on the Five are becoming unwatchable. Beckel is disgusting and hateful. The only one who is credible anymore is Eric Bolling. Greg Gutfeld is funny, but his injections of humor often happen at completely inappropriate times.

But I´m not clear as to what anyone sees in Levin. He usually says what we are already thinking, have been thinking for decades, and he only seems to say it to people like us. He works in an echo chamber.

I saw her and heard her comment and wondered to myself how she knows what is enough and not enough exposure. If her thought process is correct, she just lowered her standing on herself as she certainly is over exposed - everday on the five!
For someone who is suppose to be schooled on public speaking and ready on her feet, her pitiful observation on the topic left me flat and doubting her.

Dana Perino is exactly correct. We lose many elections because we haven´t the wisdom to see ourselves as others see us. The Leftist media will be all too happy to characterize the good Dr. arson as a creation of Fox News and the angry Right.
It´s wrong, of course, but whoamong uhas not met a persuadable person who won´t listen because they have lost that ability owing to a flood of propaganda from the DNC?
He needs a broader audience.
I recall an incident: a candidate for Governor was in my home fr coffee meeting with our neighbors. My wife was overjoyed and insisted that he would win. My reply: he has lost. If hs late campaign appearances were in the homes of stron Republicans in an overwhelmingly Republican precinct, he has lost. He did. Big.
Stay away from controversial topics for now, Dr. Carson. Win people to your side with your personality. Laugh it up with Leno. There is time to press your advantage. Everything in its time.

I can´t stand grown adults who "worry" about how others perceive them. Rove, Perino and many others are the reason the Republican Party is losing races and isn´t worth conservatives voting for. The media is ALL hard-core socialist and will do/say anything to win. The RINOs want to prevent anyone from fighting back effectively. I think a huge chunk of the Republican elite are Democrat infiltrators and they´re getting away with it.

I find it refreshing to listen to Dr. Ben Carson. He is able to answer a question or make a statement that makes sense. It´s short and to the point. He doesn´t repeat the same old talking points. I know it is thought points have to be repeated over and over again. However, there are many ways to relate a point without the hum drum talking points accepted by a given group..

The Five started out beautifully, but in some ways has deteriorated in some striving to be all things to all people. The truth is buried to satisfy the desire to be liked by both sides or to be conceived as somehow more intelligent ; it just doesn´t work and makes us not trust the judgement of the speaker. Perino states her opinion quietly, while Beckel & Juan Williams shriek their semi truths from the rafters. Either way they appear disassociated from principle at times. Do they know that is what they are doing? I would say they do, but it shows their insecurity with telling the truth on certain subjects.

Also, I must say that Dana Perino is a very intelligent person, just misguided in certain instances. Refer to my previous post #23.

To the poster who mentioned the "angry Right" - what? It´s called passion. It´s the angry Left that is destroying this country and pitting one group against another. Obama won the White House twice, has the Senate and most of courts and most of the Supremes, controls the media with a teeny tiny exeption and yet, he stills complains, whines, etc.

Dana is a pretty and intelligent woman who can come off as cutesy, but she has spent too much time among the elites - you don´t work in the White House in the positions she held and not get caught up in that rarified world.

Mark on the other hand - he left that world a long time ago and like Dana is entitled to his opinions.

Fox News is getting pretty lame and almost unwatchable, well, at lest certain shows: the Five, Shepard Smith, O´Reilly, FOx and Friens.

I want to like Dana....but she seems incapable of saying Schumer even when she has a mouthful. She has the charming and innocent quality of seeing the best in everyone (much like a John Bolton or V.D.H.)but is then crippled by her own graciousness. The left plays dirty and she plays WAY too nice.

Mr. Levin is correct. There is not a day that goes by that I don´t learn something from him about the Constitutiton and our Founding Fathers. He is one of the few on the air who EDUCATES and he tells it straight.
Dana Perino should take a look at her buddy Jeb Bush, then get back to us to talk about over exposure.

Mark Levin knows republicans will not act. He keeps on providing the compelling arguments for someone to act or speak out. They never do. And so Yeat´s line, "the best lack all conviction" comes true in America. They are blind or deluded. Or, if they know themselves, they carry the fool that are, among all the traitors in history, the worst of all collaborators. The worst for all eternity. For we, the greatest freest country, could rise again with truth and fearless leadership. Perino teared up last night when Hannity called her "Establishment." Maybe she is doing her best. Maybe she told Bush to be quiet about the coup he and his father well know is going on. Maybe America is just a shade of nail polish.

Dr. Benjamin Carson is a much more accomplished person than Dana Perino. He is much more intelligent and cultured and has gone far further in his education and achievements than Perino. You know, Carson had to deal with racist and classist bullies when he was a child and looks like those same bullies are still around, telling him to shut up. A little research into Carson´s amazing life story would educate those who want to join in with the bullies.

A previous poster said Levin should shut up and learn something. Well, that remark shows the ignorance and bizarre arrogance of the uneducated. Perhaps Dana should shut up and learn something. What has she ever done that comes close to Carson´s accomplishements?

Perhaps the establishment should "shut up" and listen for a while to people who have actually saved children´s and adults´ lives, who became not only a neurosurgeon, but the best in his field. He adapted a procedure to treat seizures in children in a new way that has become the accepted treatment in the world of medicine. He also was the first doctor in history to separate twins joined at the head with both surviving (they are both still alive). He has great ideas to solve our country´s problems and perhaps we should listen to him. He overcame many obstacles and had no privilege of any kind as he did so. Dana basically said for Carson to shut up. Cannot believe the unthinking among us who would support what she said.

#28 is right about group think. It´s a shame someone like Perino can´t express her opinion without the "real" conservatives like Levin and many on this site attacking her. Some on the right are sounding just like the far left who think Obama can do no wrong.

I like Levin sometimes, Perino sometimes and many others sometimes. I try not to come unglued if they don´t always agree with me. I like to hear lots of opinions, not just an echo chamber.

I think Dana Perino was a good WH spokesman for Bush - she has an ease with words I would die for, however she is part of the reason we are where we are. She did not defend Bush either. She´s a cuter female version of Karl Rove.

I love Mark Levin´s passion, and if everyone listened to him, the country would be in so much better shape.

I invite you all to kick the Beckel-Five habit by joining Glenn Beck over at Blaze TV. He is building a network completely outside the oppression of the LSM. You can watch online or Dish TV offers The Blaze ala carte for only 5 bucks a month or comes free with their Top 250 package. There are also cable systems starting to offer it. Come join the fun. You won´t have to suffer with the Beckel, B O´Re, Perinos of the world.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

Oprah Winfrey’s OWN cable network is developing a two-part miniseries chronicling one of the ugliest and least-known chapters in U.S. history. In Tulsa, Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer (The Help) plays a journalist who investigates the 1921 Oklahoma race riots, where an estimated 300 people were believed to have been murdered amid post-WWI racial tension surrounding segregation laws and the prosperous black community of Greenwood. According to a 2011 New York Times story on the subject, “The Tulsa race riot of 1921 was rarely mentioned in history books, classrooms or even in private…an episode so brutal that this city, in

On a politically focused trip aimed at revving up his base and raising cash, President Barack Obama on Wednesday urged supporters to help Democrats keep control of the U.S. Senate and declared this year to be his last campaign. Buoyed by good news over his signature healthcare program, Obama touted proposals to raise the minimum wage and spur job creation that have little chance of passage in Congress during a rally with students in Michigan. Later at a fundraiser in Chicago he underscored Democratic worries about their political vulnerabilities in the Senate and House of Representatives in November congressional elections.

Issa calls meeting next week to weigh
contempt against ex-IRS official Lerner

A House committee will meet next week to consider whether to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, Rep. Darrell Issa announced Thursday. The former IRS official has twice appeared before Congress, and twice invoked her Fifth Amendment right not to answer questions, regarding the IRS targeting scandal. But Republicans argue she waived that right -- and have scheduled a meeting of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on April 10 to weigh contempt. They say she played a key role in the agency´s practice of singling out conservative groups seeking non-profit status for extra scrutiny.

Public comments force IRS to

In writing about the IRS’s proposed effort to silence conservatives through new regulations on 501(c)(4) organizations, we noted the enormous number of public comments being submitted in response to the regs. In the end, the number of comments exceeded 150,000. I don’t know whether the criticisms have been heard by the IRS but their weight has been felt. Today IRS Commissioner Koskinen told an audience at the National Press Club that his agency is unlikely to finalize the proposed regulations this year. Koskinen said: During the comment period, which ended in February, we received more than 150,000 comments. That’s a record for an

Millions of individuals who recently entrusted personal, medical, and financial information to the federal government while enrolling in Obamacare via Healthcare.gov may find a recent trend reported by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) rather unsettling. The number of security breaches involving Personally Identifiable Information (PII) at federal agencies more than doubled in recent years, increasing from 10,481 in 2009 to 25,566 in 2013. Perhaps even more disturbing, the GOA found that "none of the seven agencies [in a related study] consistently documented lessons learned from PII breaches."

First lady Michelle Obama told school children Wednesday that the White House garden is going to help restore the dying bee population. “So we’re going to plant all kinds of flowers that attract bees and butterflies, which is not going to make the Obama girls happy, because they don’t really like bees, but bees are good. “Bees are a good thing,” Mrs. Obama repeated. “So you guys are going to help do that, and that’s the first time we’ve done a pollinator garden. “Pretty cool, huh?” she asked. Mrs. Obama told students from local elementary schools that bees and butterflies

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Sources tell The ENQUIRER that Obama exploded when Mi­chelle refused to cancel her pricey getaway – even after White House advisers warned him that the first couple’s six-year string of extravagant vacations had already drained the U.S. Trea­sury of a whopping $150 million in tax­payers’ money. Instead of postpon­ing her trip, a furious Michelle – still seeth­ing over the embarrassing “selfie” Barack recently snapped with a leggy blonde head of state –

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official

Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. has a 401(k) plan featuring several mutual funds investing in pharmaceutical firms that produce intrauterine birth control devices, emergency contraceptive pills and drugs used in abortion procedures, according to Labor Department documents and a review of fund portfolios.
