I find Michael to be a bright and articulate man. I enjoy his comments as well as his entertainment reviews. While I generally agree with his polities and politics, I am surprised that he refers to “birthers” as “nut-cases”, when by Obama’s admission (as well as that of his vicious bed-mate),. he was born in Kenya and yet the media or even The Congress will not challenge him as the first president ever to have been born a non-American citizen (with the exception of the first seven presidents who were born as British subjects.
I think he refers to them as “nut cases” because it is a mute point regardless. He has a birth certificate from Hawaii (real or not, I don’t know). It divides the conservatives and makes us appear to be nuts by the mainstream media. Let’s work on things that matter – the next election. Obama will not be impeached or anything else. Let’s stop fighting against each other and work on things that will make a difference
Hey George W. Bush came to us as the first President entering in to office with a criminal record, not to mention his sketchy Military record which no one seems to be able to get straight, including George W, himself. In one of his public addresses, he says, that he fought in a war, which war was that George, certainly not the Vietnam War. The first president to make up his own words, possibly our most inarticulate modern president. The first President who on his first month in office goes on a one month vacation. During George W’s administration we had the worst domestic terrorist attack in the HISTORY of the United States. Talk about incompetence right across the boards. No wonder there are all these nut job groups who thought it was an inside Job……There was no inside job..Just a bunch of imbeciles running the country that’s all….Let’s give Obama a break
Quit smoking weed and get a life.
I couldn’t find a place on your website to sign your 2nd Amendment petition, so my husband and I signed Bill Bennett’s. Bill’s reminder was right at the top of his home page.
I just want to say I’m addicted to Michael and have been listening to his podcasts daily for the last 16 months. I came to your talk with Dennis, Hugh and Jon Voight in south Florida last year and really wanted to say hello but didn’t get the opportunity. So I’ll send my regards this way and see you next time you’re in Florida!
Michael, it’s your face and your mustache; you look good with or without it. However, Diane has been wearing her hair like that along time. I like bangs on a woman but not long hair just hanging down, so I think it’s time for her to go short and try a new “do”. Long hanging hair makes women look older and if it’s good enough for you to change your appearance, it’s time for her.
I second that
Mr. Medved, I always listen to your show and enjoy it most of the time. sometimes not so much. To me you are very articulate and knowledgeable. your words are so clear to my foreign ears. (was not born in the US) I checked your page today to see you face sans your “famous” mustache, and to tell you the truth, I don’t like your face without it, and this opinion comes from a person that dislikes mustaches! but we always get used to it. right? DT
I enjoy Michael’s show quite a bit, but if i were him I wouldn’t bother putting liberals on air, such as Gavin Newsom. Liberals and their ideas have to be defeated to make any progress in this country.
Michael, I appreciate your knowledge of American history. It puts many of today’s topics in the broader context. I do wish, however, that you woud skewer some of the liberal arguments on a spit when they cannot maintain a basic philosophical logic. It would bring their blather to a screeching and abrupt end – much to my delight. Keep on keeping the intelligence of talk radio high.
Michael, all of us loyal listeners know you are blessed with the greatest knowledge of history and statistical data to support your ” factual” arguments. As a fiscally conservative Independent with 8 grandkids, I strongly want fiscally responsible elected representatives.Unfortunately, I am now convinced that the Republican “brand” is no longer viable at the national/presidential level due to the multiple” perceptions held by millions in the potential electorate ( i.e.old white men trying to protect the wealth of the rich and corporations, hoping to overturn Roe v. Wade , etc.). But the overwhelming negative for the GOP is that of bearing the blame for the tragic Iraq invasion,and in the opinion of most informed voters a debacle of the highest order.Your ongoing “opinion” and rationalization in support of the Iraq war has been, I feel, quite inconsistent with your typical intellectually arrived at positions.Perhaps you feel obliged to hold to the position held by some of your core conservative supporters? Moving on, my conclusion is that a new attractive political party will be necessary to prevent the fiscally irresponsible Dems.from controlling Congress & the White House into the long term future.I have been suggesting the name ” the American Citizens Party”. It would be committed to fiscal responsibility,sustainable entitlements, strong defense, secure borders, strong economy with job growth,acceptance of Roe v.Wade as the law of the land,candor with all elements of society, drastic strategies to end incentives & greatly reduce out of wedlock births, reform welfare, no more attempts at ” nation-building “.(How’s all that for blue sky dreaming?).Also, the only pledges allowed would be to uphold the U.S. Constit. & the Pledge of Allegience. Michael, we know you feel third parties are folly, but it appears that the GOP is folly with all of its soul searching for a viable path forward at the national level that can unite all of its varied conservative voices and still win with the rest of the public. Since that is highly unlikely to happen, please consider joining us to help save the U.S. from ruination!
Michael I love your program. You have an excellent presentation style which is thoughtful, calm, intellectual and factual. Your sound conservative arguments are right-on. I also think you are providing a great service in focusing conservatives to prevail.
I very much enjoyed meeting you in person in Hawaii at the KHNR Studio this past week. Please let me know when you will be Hawaii next as I would enjoy meeting you again.
Aloha and Shalom
Eric Tessmer, Molokai Hawaii
Where can I find your program on the radio in Salt Lake City? I used to listen to you, but now cannot find you on our stations… -Jane
Only the bark received from Cinnamomum verum is regarded as real cinnamon. Not only was that undesirable adequate but the health care local community started off to attack regional healers that used herbs, which prompted a withdrawal of herbs utilized as a source of therapy.
As an avid African American listener of your show, I’d like to impart my view as to why republicans and conservatives have such a difficult time attracting more minorities (particularly African Americans) to your philosophy. I’ll start with a truncated version of an election cycle: On a Sunday a.m. talk show (e.g. Meet the Press) a candidate like Michelle Bachman will assert that black kids (easily interpreted to mean black people) were better off as slaves. Monday she (and you) will say that her statement was out of context or misconstrued. The election is held on Tuesday and on Wednesday conservatives wake up and wonder why they get so little African American support! Whether it’s intentional or not, conservative rhetoric is too often and too easily perceived as hostile to many minority interests. For example, whenever a Martin Luther King memorial, street or holiday is proposed, a conservative will be against it. Whenever someone asserts that the elimination of Jim Crow was an affront to liberty and the constitution, you can bet that he or she is a conservative like Rand Paul. When somebody proffers an argument that crime can be reduced by aborting all black babies, it will inevitably spew from the mouth of of a conservative like Bill Bennett.(they say they didn’t mean it, but the perception lasts far longer than the explanation or apology, would you be receptive to a candidate or argument that suggested in any way that the way to,eliminate tay sacs would be to abort Jewish infants?) There of course so much more but I would like to tell you this true story in conclusion. As I had said, I’ve been a long time listener to you (can’t say fan) since the Limbaugh days. When you initially moved to Seattle, one of your first “cultural crusades” was a defense and advocacy of the confederate flag. I was driving my mom during this episode. She was born and raised in Louisiana (1930,s). She is what could only be described as you would describe yourself i.e. culturally conservative: married (to my father for almost 60 years, school teacher 30 plus years, devoted church goer etc.) Someone who sounds like an ally to conservatism, whom you lost completely with your stance on this one (and subsequently more) issues. Bottom line: If conservative republicans don’t want others to think that they are racist, prejudiced and bigoted, stop, please stop saying (and writing things) that are racist bigoted and prejudiced.
