Any site hosting Tucker Carlson video of GOP elite hate religious voters?
Edited on Mon Oct-09-06 04:31 PM by blm
It was on the Chris Matthews show over the weekend. It was a very candid statement from Carlson, and he said it with background knowlege provided, so I think we should get hold of it and start our own chain emails to spread it around.

Maybe link the video to a bit of the transcript of that exchange.

We could post it around at RW forums and religious group sites.

So - - anyone grab that ACCIDENTAL GIFT from Tucker?

7. I'm ignorant, which one is it?
All I know is he may have leaked something about a second GOP/page scandal about to break...? If that's what it was, maybe I can tell Tucker's assistant Jennifer DeRosa I "need a copy" of the tape for some reason and not say exactly why. If I ask Tucker for it, and it's that story, he'll be immediately suspicious of my reasons for asking for it. Jennifer might not be as cautious.

Is it the 2nd GOP/page scandal "more to come" thing he said, that you guys are looking for?

12. No - it's Chris Matthews weekend show and Tucker sez the GOP elite hate
Edited on Mon Oct-09-06 08:58 PM by blm
the religious right behind their backs, and everyone he knows feels the same.

Well, look at how many Republican elite he knows - - most of DC.

8. Aha: Chris Matthews
Sorry, everyone. I finally learned how to read the first post and learn things! OK, the Chris Matthews Show. I *may* (strong disclaimer, MAY) be able to get my hands on a copy, but it would never come from Tucker, and it would probably get to me days later than you need it. If Tucker said something incriminating that could be used by us on the left, trust me, he knows it - and if I asked him for a copy, he'd narrow his eyes and ask why. :shrug:

I do have a few connections and could likely snitch a tape from TC's assistant, as said before, or she could easily request a copy "for MSNBC purposes" by using her name and email address, but again we'd all be depending on her mercy and free time to do that, and there's no telling how soon she would get around to it, because it wouldn't be a priority - unless Tucker himself told her to do it - which brings us right back around to, "Why do you want it?" and him thinking to himself, "She IS a liberal... I wonder what I said on that show that she would suddenly want ..."

I guess the shorthand for this is I am useless. :-(

10. It was explosive - the most candid point I have ever heard a RW talker say
on air. He came straight out and said every one he knows in the gOP elite hates the religious right and looks down on them and don't care one bit that they just use them.

I couldn't believe my ears.

13. It would be tantamount to Olbermann saying every Dem elite he knows hates
Edited on Mon Oct-09-06 09:09 PM by blm
Jews and blacks - except Olbermann would never HAVE to say something like that because Dems are just not made out of that hateful material that propels the GOP to be who they are.

Dems are bonobos - Republicans are baboons who would eat their own young out of rage and greed.

19. I saw it too
Tweety's NBC show plays at 6:30 am on Saturday morning out here.
So I usually miss it due to it early morning time, amongst other reasons.
I only caught parts of the show as I was just waking up. He had Mo Dowd and Tucker as 2 of the guests. At the very end there was a predictions segment where Tucker said that more revelations on Foleygate would come forth this week, a heterosexual congressperson would be outed.

I would check NBC for transcript or video.

16. Consolation prize...?
Tucker did make these points on his show the other day, though, to former WH aide Leslie Sanchez:

"I want to punish someone for that (the Iraq War)! (I want to punish the) *Republicans*!"

"If the Democrats weren't so irresponsible, I'd be rooting for them."

"No, no, wait a minute. Republicans have spent more money than the Democrats have!"

"When the Democrats finally figure out what they believe, and if they believe something that normal people agree with? That's a big if, but let's say that they come around to that? It is OVER for the Republican Party."

How's THAT for Tucker Carlson? Days ago!

Meanwhile, however, MSNBC behind him was beating a very distinct new drum: "WHY VOTE FOR THE GOP?" is in big letters at the bottom of the screen. Playing all through Tucker's discourse were greenish infra-red images of illegal aliens swarming across the border. Tucker's a smart boy. He knows conservative Republican business owners are the ones quietly cheerleading and enabling illegal immigration. Subtlety like showing scary images of our compromised border while flashing a headline like "WHY VOTE FOR THE GOP" is exactly why hardline right wingers hate Tucker Carlson's guts right now.

Transcript excerpt from panel yesterday, Tucker Carlson on GOP and evangelicals

NBC News Transcripts

SHOW: The Chris Matthews Show Various Times NBC

October 8, 2006 Sunday

LENGTH: 3972 words

HEADLINE: Maureen Dowd of The New York Times, Andrew Sullivan of The New Republic and MSNBC's Norah O'Donnell and Tucker Carlson discuss Foley scandal, war on Iraq, woman like Hillary Clinton as American president and their scoops and predictions

ANCHORS: CHRIS MATTHEWS

REPORTERS: TUCKER CARLSON, NORAH O'DONNELL

BODY: . . .

Mr. SULLIVAN: This--and I think Norah's right. The real theme here is abuse of power, and so it ties in with corruption, the pork, the abuse of our troops in Iraq who have not been given the support they need or even a war plan to succeed.

MATTHEWS: OK, so everyone agrees here that this story, emblematic of whatever...

Mr. SULLIVAN: Just emblematic of abuse.

CARLSON: It goes deeper than that though. The deep truth is that the elites in the Republican Party have pure contempt for the evangelicals who put their party in power. Everybody in...

MATTHEWS: How do you know that? How do you know that?

CARLSON: Because I know them. Because I grew up with them. Because I live with them. They live on my street. Because I live in Washington, and I know that everybody in our world has contempt for the evangelicals. And the evangelicals know that, and they're beginning to learn that their own leaders sort of look askance at them and don't share their values.

MATTHEWS: So this gay marriage issue and other issues related to the gay lifestyle are simply tools to get elected?

CARLSON: That's exactly right. It's pandering to the base in the most cynical way, and the base is beginning to figure it out. (Unintelligible).

MATTHEWS: OK. Where are you...

Mr. SULLIVAN: The right is right to be mad about this. They have been duped by these people, and now they're venting and they have every right to vent.

37. Take it and run with my blessings
Not to sound fundie, but obviously the Almighty G-d made those words drop out of Tucker mouth, and Tucker alone will have to face the consequences. Anything that helps our cause, I'm behind fully. Grab it, run, and do with it as you will! Just make sure IT WORKS.

I'm just so cynical now. I hope this really does drive a wedge between these animals and their thicknecked fundie constituency. The Chinese call this "kick the firewood out from under the kettle" - removing your opponent's source of strength.

21. More Tucker Carlson shockers:
Tucker, this past week alone:


'Tucker' for Oct. 6

>>DAVID SHUSTER, MSNBC CORRESPONDENT: ...a lot of people, Tucker, are also suggesting, look, it doesnt really matter who was the original source of this story.

>>CARLSON: Right. Oh, I agree with that. Of courseI mean, of course. I mean, its hard for Republicans to complain about this story coming out since, do you really want Foleys behavior to remain secret? Of course not. But what would beso I think thats a phony complaint on their part.

'Tucker' for Oct. 6

>>CARLSON: This has been a week of bad news, and worse news for the Republican Party. A congressman is caught making sexual advances toward underage pages. Then the party apparently tries to cover that up. With stories like that, not to mention the current debacle in Iraq, why would anybody vote Republican?

'Tucker' for Oct. 6

>>Republicans dont seem to offer very much. I mean, theywhen it comes to spending, they spend more than the Democratic Congress did under the first Georgethe first George Bush. I mean, spending is out of control and its Republicans in charge. So, I dont know, the rationale seems to be evaporating.

'Tucker' for Oct. 6

>>SANCHEZ: No. Tucker, youre right... the alternative or the lack of alternatives that the Democrats provide in terms of cutting and running policies in our foreign policy agenda, theres such a clear distinction between Republicans and Democrats.

>>CARLSON: You know, but its a distinction between bad and worse. I mean...

>>SANCHEZ: Its a distinction between...

>>CARLSON: Its a good thing the Democrats are so irresponsible, or I would be rooting for them at this point. I mean, this country is weaker because of Iraq. I really want to punish someone for that. And the people responsible for that, I hate to say it, are Republicans.

'Tucker' for Oct. 6

>>SANCHEZ: And the fact that the Democrats have failed continually to provide an optimistic agenda or any type of leadership shows why Republicans are this committed to vote.

>>CARLSON: Wait, but with all due respect, yourI mean, your rationale for electing Republicans is the opposite of an optimistic agenda. Youre saying, you know, the Democrats are scary. Im actually agreeing with you. I think Nancy Pelosi is not good for America. You dont want Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Mikulski and people like that, you dont want them in charge. But thats hardly an optimistic reason to vote Republican, is it?

'Tucker' for Oct. 6

>>CARLSON: I mean, when the Democrats finally figure out what they believe and if they believe something that normal people agree withI mean, thats a big if, but lets say they come around to thatits over for the Republican Party. I mean, it really is.

'Tucker' for Oct. 5

>>CARLSON: Still to come, charges that a left-wing conspiracy is to blame for Mark Foleys troubles. How will that story play with voters in November? Will they buy it? Ha! Probably not.

'Tucker' for Oct. 5

>>ROGERS: I think this is a serious, serious problem for the Republican Party. I think that what weve seen happen today is that the House will flip to the Democrats. Thats my prediction.

>>CARLSON: Yes.

'Tucker' for Oct. 5

>>CARLSON: So sum in a macro way here, whats going to happen to your party, the Republican Party, in the midterm elections, what, 32 days from today? I mean, is itis it over?

>>TANCREDO: Well, if we cantif we cannot live up to the commitments weve made to the American people about border security and with what you just introduced this whole segment with, the segment about the speaker, you know, talking about border security, if we cant live up to that, Tucker, this thingwe can stick a fork in it as far as the politics is concerned and us controlling the Congress of the United States. You know, were history.

>>CARLSON: Are you embarrassed? I mean, how do you feel about that? You have been a Republican for a long time.

>>TANCREDO: Infuriated. All my lifeI mean, believe me, buddy, ever since I have been able to vote and registered to vote, I have been a Republican. I am infuriated. I am so disappointed. I wanted to go out there and make the case for the Republican Party to be returned to office. I dont know what Im going to do about this.

'Tucker' for Oct. 5

>>CARLSON: I think everybody right now, all three of us, can agree that Pat Robertson is kind of a kook.

'Tucker' for Oct. 5 - subtle endorsement of Hillary?

>>CAMPBELL: Ive been very impressed with what I have seen from Hillary. Shes a political animal. Every move is perfectly calculated in advance. Shes presidential timber. Barack Obama may be down the road, but not right now. Shes more suited for the job. Shes ready for the gig.

>>CARLSON: I tend to agree with you, I think she has more experience, I think shes tougher, I think shes probably a harder candidate to beat than liberals think at this point. But well find out. Thank you both.

'Tucker' for Oct. 5 - apology to Democrats

>> ;(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

>>CARLSON: Welcome back. Before we get to this segment, a correction of sorts on yesterdays show. I took off after House Democrats, some of them including Henry Waxman of California, (INAUDIBLE) Hoyer of Maryland and others for failing to punish Jerry Studds, a fellow Democrat who was caught in 1983 having sex with a male congressional page. I said that they did not vote for censure. Well it turns out that in fact its a little bit more complicated than that. They voted against censure in a procedural vote, it was all part of a debate over how much to punish Jerry Studds. They along with a lot of other Democrats attempted to water down the punishment. But in the end, they did vote for censure. So I was wrong and I apologize.

22. Still MORE Tucker Carlson shockers:
That's my boy!


'Tucker' for Oct. 4

>>CARLSON: Foleys multiple explanations for his behavior dont seem to be doing him much good these days. Heres a Democratic TV ad charging the cover-up put the welfare of children at risk. Watch.

>> ;(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

>>UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It shocks the conscience. Congressional leaders have admitted covering up the predatory behavior of a congressman who used the Internet to molest children. For over a year they knowingly ignored the welfare of children to protect their own power.

>> ;(END VIDEO CLIP)

>>CARLSON: Effective, but it does raise the question, would Democrats be better off letting the Republican Party destroy itself? Which it is, of course, in the process of doing.

'Tucker' for Oct. 4

>>CARLSON: Bob Novaks column today has a pretty remarkable development. Novak is claiming that even after the Republican leadership found out that there were congressional aides who felt threatened by the sexual overtures of Congressman Foley, that the Republican leadership worked to convince Foley to run again. Is that true, and if so why?

>>MCHENRY: Well, the truth is slightly different from that. The reality is, the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee asked every incumbent to run again this year, because its the sixth year of our presidents term. And the presidentsthe presidents party in Congress always loses seats in the sixth year. So the idea was we needed to get as many incumbents to run again in 2006 as possible. So the idea that Foley was singled out is just mistaken and untrue.

>>CARLSON: OK. But presumably the other incumbents werent going after little boys. I mean, heres theheres the sticking point, even for conservatives, maybe especially for conservatives like me. It seems pretty clear now and clearer by the day that the speaker of the House and other members of the Republican leadership had a pretty good idea that this guy was a predator and interested in little boys. Why didnt they do more about it?

'Tucker' for Oct. 4

>>MCHENRY: When the original e-mail came out, Tucker, CREW, a liberal ethics group, as well as numerous media organizationson top of that, the Republican House leadershipthey all made the same determinationthe same determination that the FBI did, that there was nothing actionable in that e-mail.

>>CARLSON: Nothing actionable, maybe; nothing illegal, possibly. I dont know, I mean, having sex with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office wasnt illegal.

'Tucker' for Oct. 4

>>MCHENRY: Well, I hope we dont lose the House. This certainly does not help. This is certainly a horrible scandal, and as a conservative its very objectionable to me at itsat its core, the realities of this situation. I dont want to have a colleague who is preying on children. But the facts are that we have to deal with the scandal as it is now. And the facts are clear that the House Republican leadership acted appropriately on the information they had. Its the same decision the FBI made. But the questions that remain are the ones that I posed to you just a second ago.

>>CARLSON: Right. Where did thisand I think thatsthats an interesting question. I dont think it absolves the Republican leadership of its responsibility, but I would like to know where these things came from.

'Tucker' for Oct. 4 - Tucker, too, caught FOX changing Foley's party affiliation

>>CARLSON: Coming up, the Foley scandal does bear some similarities to the uproar over Jim McGreevey, the former governor of New Jersey who outed himself. The question is, are scandal-prone politicians now attempting to play the gay card, whatever that is, and is it working? And wait a minute. Mark Foley is a Republican, isnt he? You wouldnt know that from watching FOX News. That story on Beat the Press when we come back.

>> ;(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

>>CARLSON: Well, its time now for Beat the Press. First up, Bill OReilly over on FOX News. Politicians have been known to change political parties, of course, but they usually do that on their own. It looks like FOX took it upon themselves to take care of that for former congressman Mark Foley. Watch.

>> ;(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

>>BILL OREILLY, THE OREILLY FACTOR: He did it for so long, and he did it in a methodical way, that he wouldnt have resigned unless he got caught. So I cant give him any points.

>> ;(END VIDEO CLIP)

>>CARLSON: Catch that? Mark Foley (D), Florida. Yes. Mark Foley is a Republican. Jim Traficant was a Democrat, but Mark Foley is a Republican. Got to be honest about it.

'Tucker' for Oct. 4 - about FOX News

>>CARLSON: The Amish school shooting, Anna Nicole Smiths pregnancy, and the threat of nuclear Armageddon from North Korea. All in under a minute. Such is the news bouillabaisse on FOX News.

'Tucker' for Oct. 4

>>SANCHEZ: The issue is who knew what when. Who knew it six months ago? Whether it was Republican or Democratic staff, whether it was congressional leadership, whoever it was, they had a moral and legal obligation to say something and if they did not, they need to go.

>>CARLSON: Well I mean, that is the political question too. I mean, the midterms are literally a month away. And Republicans are scrambling now to do damage control. But their efforts may be too late, given that the party leadership did not fully investigate the Foley issue in late 2005 when initial reports surfaced of an inappropriate e-mail from Foley to a House page. And I have to say, Leslie, Foleys request for a picture kind of says it all. Theres really no excuse for a man in his 50s to be asking a boy in his teens for a picture, unless its a cop and its a lineup. I mean, theres no excuse. That kind ofyou know the score when you read that and yet they didnt do anything.

'Tucker' for Oct. 4

>>SANCHEZ: You know... People want accountability and leadership, and I think until we have that youre going to see people upset and theyre going to take it out in November.

>>CARLSON: Amen.

'Tucker' for Oct. 4

>> ;(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

>>UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Thats the only righteous message for this evil nation that has gone the way of the Brokeback Mountain. Gods wrath is upon this nation.

>> ;(END VIDEO CLIP)

>>CARLSON: Thats the Reverend Fred Felps (ph). Hes the leader of the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas. His group was planning to stage a demonstration at the funerals of those five Amish girls who were executed in their school house. Why? Because the governor of Pennsylvania, where the killings took place, is an outspoken critic of Felps and his followers, but now church members have apparently agreed to call off their demonstration in exchange for radio air time to express their sentiments. Thats right, a radio talk show host has said I will give you an hour on my program if you wont go demonstrate.

>>Heres what I dont get. Its wrong to negotiate with terrorists, we know that. Why dont we recognize its wrong always and everywhere to give Fred Felps, one of the creepiest people on this earth, an hour of radio air time. I dont care if you think its for a greater good, its wrong. Ignore Fred Felps, please. This guy feeds off our attention. Hes a creep. I doubt he even means what he says. He exists to infuriate us. Dont make him happy by giving him attention, please.

Notice Tucker feels the same about Felps as we do.

24. I'll have more respect for Bowtie Boy when he can give Ann Coulter
the Fred Phelps treatment:

"Heres what I dont get. Its wrong to negotiate with terrorists, we know that. Why dont we recognize its wrong always and everywhere to give Fred Felps, one of the creepiest people on this earth, an hour of radio air time. I dont care if you think its for a greater good, its wrong. Ignore Fred Felps, please. This guy feeds off our attention. Hes a creep. I doubt he even means what he says. He exists to infuriate us.

Substitute "Ann Coulter" for Fred, Tucker, and I MIGHT cut you some slack on that one issue.

He loved the cartoon I did about the two of them. My whole point - and he got it and adores it - is how these conservatives all lock step dittoheading each other while the cameras are on; but the second those things go off, the true colors come out! It's on my blog, about two or three cartoons down. Tucker CANNOT STAND Ann Coulter.

28. That's good to know
I'm still upset about how he treated David Brock a few weeks ago, though :mad:

29. He makes me mad sometimes too
Just when I start to think he's coming around, he reverts back to form and becomes a pretend Libertarian (read: RW attack dog that can punch Democrats in the jaw then switch and claim he's not Republican so no one can land a glove on him). But then, just when I write him off and think, "I hope he doesn't email me ever again", he turns a 180 and sounds damn near sensible. (Or sends some cute email of some kind that makes me laugh and remember he's human. Or at his worst, does both on the same night.) Tucker's a wild card. But I'm sticking with my prediction he's going to turn liberal by 2010, though. He shows every sign of it.

30. He needs to hang around Rachel Maddow more.
I think she may have been getting through to him when they were doing the show together.

31. Yeah he genuinely likes her
I do too. Great lady, and sharp, with a keen, fearless mind. Tucker seems to like it a lot when _____________'s (insert liberal noun here) don't act as ___________ (fill in anti-liberal adjective) as he and other conservatives expect us to. He especially likes a good sense of humor and the ability to laugh at yourself. He and I fought and had an argument right off the bat when we first started talking - not about politics but something else - and he dismissed me saying "our personalities clash". Now he seems to consider me a good friend, and I consider him one. What won him over, I think, was a sense of humor. Tucker used to say liberals didn't have any and that we were terminally unfunny.

Now that I've made him blow Evian out over his keyboard, and we've laughed hysterically on the phone together several times, he doesn't say that anymore ;)

33. Did Tucker ever hear of Larry David
Edited on Tue Oct-10-06 10:04 AM by blm
or Michael O'Donoghue or Dan Aykroyd or Robin Williams? Would he like to believe that he can best any of them? I'd bet that M O'D's ashes are funnier than a fully breathing Carlson.
