    I'm trying to figure out if Frank Lutz really has the gall to call out theFOXNEWS on this as he was part of the "day in, day out" lies...I think. I see him as sculpting a certain sect of people into the GOP's bidding. Haven't quite decided if he's lying or not, I simultaneously kinda like him and kinda don't.

    Anyway, check him giving it to a theFOXNEWs teevee host...

    Bout time somebody on their own side really called out the Tomfoolery...even if he's been an active part of it himself.

    :lol:

    The last year or so Luntz has been turning over a new leaf. He no longer shills for the people who pay him. He got older and his libertarian streak probably tired him out.

    that said, I've been trying in vain to tell these fools that they are being used, but hey...I never understood masochism :eusa_shifty:

    Can you expound a bit more on this Dante...I'm not sure I get your meaning.

    Break down that Luntz observation of yours some more if you will...sounds interesting.

    ItÂ’s a little late for that, Fox has been lying to its viewers for years.

    I am outraged about Benghazi. How about you?

    If things go down hill from here, are you gonna stick to your guns?

    We are all on very thin ice right now, you might want to consider that. There are things that you both won, lost and abandoned, the effects are still not known.

    Luntz is a complex character. I think he has always been more a data nerd than an ideologue. I believe even Tony Blankely (had he lived longer), like Luntz may have been under the spell of Newt and the revolution of the time, but smart people move on...they grow or they get stuck and become caricatures of themselves as Newt did.

    I've seen Luntz on the major media outlets over the past few years (I don't do cable anymore) and at first I thought he was playing to the audience, but he appears to be more interested in being taken seriously and giving out precise info than in spinning, which is hilarious as he tutors others on how to spin. No one of any substance is one-dimensional, but some people are more complex in their make up than others...Luntz is one of those complex characters I find truly fascinating...sort of like Carville, Buchanan, Atwater, Ailes...

    step back from your biases and prejudices and you will see Luntz for what he truly is...

    I loved reading HL Mencken when I was younger. I used to buy out of print early editions of his works. Who knew, a street wise character with an intellectual side...:eusa_shifty:...and I always remember Mencken's Prejudices -- he crucified many a leading intellectual, but sometimes he praised ... what I learned form him was a technique on how to see more clearly through all the masks and facades.

    funny thing is most people walk away from his readings and only remember the biting cynicism and criticism. They miss the forest for the trees.

    give Luntz a closer look. study Luntz as he does his subjects. For all his partisan work, he rarely if ever steers his subjects or clients in the wrong direction. On many levels he;s an honest man
