Student secretly records Frank Luntz who asked all recording devices be turned off before he went off on Limbaugh and talk radio as being the ‘problem’ for the political polarization in the country - and wrongfully attacking Marco Rubio’s Amnesty for Illegals push.

It is good to know that Rubio is getting killed on being a gang of 8 member! Also hoping Lindas days in the Senate are coming to and end for the same reason.

Luntz is a political windsock—his loyalties waiver with the political winds. He is a variety of whore common to the vicinity of Washington D.C.

He only dared to speak so candidly about Limbaugh and other conservative hosts off the record. A secretly recorded video, though, captured Luntz's remark.

First, Luntz is dumb if he thinks there is any "off the record" in today's world where practically everyone has a cell phone with voice and video recording capability.

And, did he include Hannity in those who are 'problematic", Hannity whose show he appears on scores of times per year and several times per week during election seasons.

Another one caving.

Back in 08 a couple of FReepers noticed that some of the Luntz focus group members kept showing up in his groups around the country. (Pro Romney mod-er-rats)

The RINO’s want “Democrat Party II”

We need a third party if the knuckleheads running the GOP drift even farther to the Left

Once again, proof that the GOP should be abandoned to the grave next to the Whigs, and that an explicitly Conservative Party should be created.

Immigration reform that brings people out of the shadows is the last, best opportunity for the party to reset its broken relationship with Hispanics."

What an idiot. Amnesty is the GOPs best opportunity to make itself irrelevant for the next several decades, or possibly for the duration of the USA.

So - Luntz is an advocate of Amnesty and many if not most Conservatives are not. I would think that Levin is giddy to hear that his efforts to slam Rubio and drive down the possibility of Amenesty is working. I certainly am. Luntz has fallen into the trap that having his own wishes and wants get in the way of objective analysis. It should not be news that so called Republican leaders want Amnesty and that most Conservatives do not. And why is Luntz surprised that Rubio’s slight of hand in saying his immigration plan does not contain Amnesty - when it plainly does and Conservatives don’t like it. I would call that ‘Pollster’s Head in the sand”.

I can’t seem to find the last time the Pillsbury-look-alike-Doughboy placed his name on any ballot for public office, so that the voters could express their agreement/disagreement with his positions!

I kinda’ wish FOX would give Luntz his own show so that I can completely ignore him like I do Shemp Smith. Instead of having him pop up on Hannity whereby I always turn the station. I couldn’t care less what his stupid ‘focus groups’ have to say and their dumb little dial graphs.

Luntz’ biases were pointed out repeatedly here when he became a not-so-veiled Romney advocate during Gingrich’s rises in the primaries.

He’ll be on Team Jeb in a couple of years.

I’m right there with you guys.

The GOP is become simply a tool for the Democrats to destroy Conservatism from within. The GOP Ruling Class oligarchs are allies with their “MarxoFascist” friends ‘on the other side of the aisle’.

If Conservatives do not get off the GOP plantation - Conservatism itself will be rendered politically irrelevant.

Have they been able to determine yet what type of small mammal that is sitting atop Luntz’s head?

Also confirms that the word of many young political junkies is not to be trusted. They probably all said, “Yup” when he asked if all devices were off.

Frank Luntz has been “problematic” for a very long time. His liberal RINO bias has been more than evident by the manner in which he frames the debate and asks the questions of his supposedly transparent focus groups. Luntz is a shill for the RNC and their passel of Roves.

Since Hannity is such great friends with Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh, and since Hannity’s show is about the only place where Luntz has a platform, if Hannity doesn’t bounce Luntz from his perch of privilege for this, he (Hannity) will lose even more credibility.

And, he emphasized, words matter.

Words and language trigger automatic frames which are unconscious mental structures, which when activated, make sense of things and shape goals, plans, the way one sees the world,what counts as common sense,the way one reasons,actions, which influence which policies are favored and which institutions are created and supported.

When one gets trapped in a libtard frame,it leads to mindless support for libtard policies and institutions. The solution is to develop conservative language so that conservative frames can be substituted for libtard frames.

I prefer Levin’s Conservatism to Hannity’s ‘whore-for-my-show’ approach to providing platforms to the enemies of liberty he calls ‘guests’.

I recall Hannity’s rant not long ago about the GOP needing to embrace amnesty, or lose elections for the foreseeable future. Hannity doesn’t have much Conservative credibility with me.

The first time I turned FOX {or any TV news back on since 11-6-2012) was to watch coverage of the boston bombers.

Once it became clear that even the FOX bitches didn't know why the two islamist terrorists did what they did, I knew that I made a good decision to turn TV news off, and have done so again.

I may turn it on if there is a major event, like afwon going down in a swamp.

Hannity brought Luntz to the notice of TV viewers.

Soon he became full of himself and gained some weight.

Seems all fat and sassy now that he is real “important”

Wanted to bad mouth Rush behind his back huh?


LOL sorry Charlie you aren't fit for starkist.

Beck had Jeff Flake on this morning and grilled him extensively on this cr@p sandwich deal. Jeff sounded like any other liberal answering ever question with Yeah but, type answers.

He was actually worse than Rubio with his endless deflection of simple questions. No answer for the question, why don't we just enforce the current law? This new law will force them to keep the law, blah, blah, blah.

The reactions of Rush, Hannity, Levin and others will be interesting. Hannity might overlook it, or be required to by Fox if they view Lutz as a worthwhile contributor. And then there will be the reactions of listeners and viewers, and all non-Democrats to what Lutz said.

Levin will (rightfully so) tear Luntz and the whole cornucopia of D.C. ‘GOP Consultants’ a new arsehole and reveal what they truly are.

We have at least one who will call out the enemies in our midst and shout the dangers they pose to both Conservatism and liberty itself.

This will be another of those days when Levin has too much to talk about: Luntz, the sudden Mirandizing of the terrorist, state and federal refusals to release welfare benefit information on the terrorists, maybe the Bush library ceremonies, and those are just some new items from today.

I would think the talk of the MarxoFascists exempting themselves from ObamaCare and forcing it on the rest of us plebes will receive some mention from The Great One.

Limbaugh and Levn speak out for conservative values.

Of course that’s a problem (for the GOPe).
