Posted on 06/14/2013 6:10:19 PM PDT by Nachum
Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson President George W. Bushs top speechwriter from 2001 to 2006 was hired by the Post in 2007 because he would be a different kind of conservative and "an independent voice." Translation: he would slash other people on the right as dishonest, dishonorable, unpatriotic people. He has not attacked talk-show hosts on MSNBC or other leftists this way.
In his Friday column, Gerson whacked Ron Paul, Rush Limbaugh, and Mark Levin with these harsh attacks. Mark Levin offered NewsBusters his reaction.
A number of libertarians and conservative populists have found data collection by the National Security Agency(NSA) to be the final confirmation of their worst fears about Barack Obama and modern government. It is an attempt, according to Ron Paul, to deliberately destroy the Constitution. To radio talk show host Mark Levin, it reveals the elements of a police state. To Rush Limbaugh, it is part of a coup detat by the Obama regime.
...For Levin, it encompasses abuses by the Internal Revenue Service, the collection of DNA by policemen, Obamacares centralization of medical records and the use of domestic drones. The Transportation Department, people forget, has proposed black boxes in all of our automobiles to track how they function, Levin adds.

Levin is very good.
The left is all on the same page.
We hire from the Left and they are not on the same page with us.
I wonder why we keep losing...
How cute...WaPo has a David Brooks of it’s very own.....
How dare they not roll over and take it up the ol’ Wazoo huh?
Gerson is trying to compete with David Brooks for the Kevin Phillips Award, given annually to the “conservative” most popular with the Beltway and Manhattanite Left.
Michael Gerson, shut up. Even my 92 year old aunt says it’s a police now. She can’t believe the communist sympathizers are not being taken in for questioning.
I believe the discriptor is:
Just today Steve King told Glenn Beck that a democrat warned him that the democrats have detailed files on their opposition right down to what websites they’ve visited on their computers.
Now, how would the democrats have access to that sort of info?
Michael Gerson, shut up. Even my 92 year old aunt says its a police state now.
She cant believe the communist sympathizers are not being taken in for questioning.
None so blind as he who will NOT see.
Bump for truth!
Gerson is a rear-guard leftist, as are most of the self-styled “conservative” statists.
another hysterical historical dustpan dweller desperately seeking susan....or sumthn’
Gerson, Gergen - - different turds from the same anus.
Mr. Gerson seems well-spoken, but with regards to the NSA being used to target certain groups, political pundits and concerned citizens who are unfriendly to the Obama administration as no “evidence” to back such charges, I have only one thing to say, “If it looks like a duck, acts like a duck, walks and even talks like a duck, it’s likely a duck.”
And I think they should throw the quacks out.
The US is the kind of country that our grandparents back in the 50s would have had to destabilize to get rid of the Soviet sympathizers that had taken over. We are like Italy and Greece, Guatemala, Iran and the Dominican Republic were back then.
It's too late. The damage is done. The frog is boiled.
Is there anyone from the Bush Administration that doesn’t attack conservatives?
