It seems to me every time I see a someone interviewing a Liberal about one topic or another, let it be the war, gun ownership, or illegal immigration they can't never give a direct answer.

An example would be I was just watching Neil Cavuto on Fox interview this insane lady who feels illegal immigrants should receive a minimum wage increase.

Neil: "Isn't what you are pushing for provide the same benefits for ILLEGAL immigrants as well as those legally here?"
Her: "Well you see Neil, the bill supports all workers in the US and....."
Neil: "but wait, I asked if what you are supporting benefits people who are here through nefarious means and are not here legally, YES OR NO?"
Her: "Well again you see Neil, in the history of the united states..."

this pattern repeats over and over!!

I'm someone everyone else has noticed this right?

Because they know its bullshit and they need to run circles around it to sound good.
Link Posted: 2/5/2007 1:01:21 PM EDT
Because their entire worldview is based on EMOTION. You can equivocate to Hell and back on EMOTION, whereas with LOGIC and FACTS you can't.

You even come close to showing a liberal that their emotional based position is in error and they feel threatened and shift the argument away from their fallacy in heartbeat.

Anyone that has spend any time watching them in action knows it's like trying to nail jello to the wall.

Because answering a question directly requires supporting facts...something Liberals are often unable to supply.

And this is different than other politicians how?

Welcome to politics grasshopper.

I've noticed it for a long time.

It's only in the past decade or so when their actions have been questioned and many simply don't know how to answer, or don't want to be pinned to an answer when their scheme ultimately fails.

Liberals cannot come to terms with absolutes like "YES" or "NO", "GOOD" or "BAD", "RIGHT" or "WRONG".

These terms hurt their minds.

Yeah, but show me a single conservative politician who gives a straight answer on anything. The problem is as much a function of the political infrastructure as it is with any given ideology.

Why can't Liberals ever answer a direct question with a direct answer?


Its not just Libs, most people cant think well enough to stay on topic, regardless of thier political view.

The real answer is, to throw you off the scent. They want to turn it around, so you are asking questions that require answers that are not relevant to the original question.

example:

OQ: What does the democratic controlled congress plan to do to combat global warming?

LA: This is precisely our point. The Bush administration has no plans as of right now to combat global warming. Thousands of scientist across the globe have signed a U.N. report that states that global warming is real, and we need to do something right now to deal with it.
The Bush administration should have a plan to wean the U.S. off fossil fuels, and deal with global warming. What have they done so far? Nothing. Nothing except increase the number of troops in Iraq. What do you think they should do about that? I think we should deal with the real problem here, how much blood for oil?

Right now, you should have a puzzled look on your face, but this is the general idea. The scum we have as elected officials right now, on both sides are experts at doing this.

It's not even that. The question is inflammatory. No politician in their right (or left) mind would answer that question.

I want to ask politicians one simple question.

What is the maximum any one individual should be directly taxed by the federal government?
a)0%
b)25%
c)50%
d)75%
e)100%
f)I choose not to answer this question because [fill in the blank]

(Break it down however much you want, I just did 25% increments because it is an example)


I would bet anything that you will not be able to find one single, solitary elected official willing to go on record and rule out a 100% income tax.

Almost all politicians are guilty of this, but yes, liberals seem to do it more often.

They perceive a logical argument as an attack by the questioner, but it's really just them beginning to realize their position is flawed, so they get angry and lash out rather than admit they might be wrong.

Its not a question politicians answer. If you were to ask to "Should the government (in|de)crease the tax?" Thats a question politicians could at least engage.

The question sounds like one of pure opinion.

Did anybody see O' Reilly interview Whoppi Goldberg last week?

Classic liberal politico-speak. She wouldn't directly answer a question.

+1000

They don't give a straight answer because they cant.
Link Posted: 2/5/2007 2:16:03 PM EDT
they always do that shit

they cant be straight forward, bc the logical and common sense questions thrown at them cant be answered by their insanity, they also expose them for what they are

they always combat logic w/ spin, name calling, finger pointing, and lies

they are also mentally retarded due to the fact socialism is a mental disease

With liberals is all about what your feelings are about a subject. Since feelings aren't subjective, measurable or logical its impossible to get coherent answers from.

Evidently there's more feeling than thinking going on in this thread.

Like it or not the question was answered in the first reply:

"The bill supports all workers in the US...."

How much plainer do you need it or want it?

If you keep keep asking the question after the answer is given, then you are the moron, Neil.

Learn how the Libtard thinks. Here's the 12 steps to overcoming libtardism.

The Program:


Step 1: Admitting that you’re a liberal

This is the first step for every liberal on the way to recovery. It is important to understand that you’re not “progressive,” “moderate,” or “enlightened.” You’re a liberal, and you need to be honest with yourself about that fact.


Step 2: Pledge to support your beliefs with facts

Realize that truth is more important than moral superiority and is the only way to come over to reality. You must research beyond propaganda from the Sierra Club, the DNC, and CNN (the Communist News Network) to understand things as they really exist in the world. You can no longer argue based on “feelings” or emotion. You will actually need to back up your arguments with real information. This is a difficult step, because it means you can’t be lazy any more.


Step 3: Love America

This may be the most difficult step for those of you who are hippies and peaceniks. Admitting that the country you hate actually stands as a beacon to defend freedom throughout the world can make some of you physically ill. You might want to make a visit to a military cemetery to better understand that these men and women gave their lives so that you could spew hatred. Otherwise, you would currently be living in a police state that would never let you wear that nasty patchouli oil, let alone speak out against your government.


Step 4: Take a college level economics class

I’ve always defined a Socialist as someone who’s never taken an economics class. Most Socialists I’ve spoken with would have a hard time balancing their checkbooks, let alone explaining the simple concept of supply-and-demand. It’s time to flush your complete ignorance of basic economics down the toilet and understand how the world actually functions. This concept will be very important for the next steps that involve communism, facts about corporations, and the inefficiencies of government.


Step 5: Say “no” to Communism and Socialism

While this concept is obvious to most of the free world, it is an important step in your recovery process. If you have difficulty with this step, spend a week living and working in Cuba.


Step 6: Corporations are not evil

If you’re reading this article online or in an e-mail, it’s thanks to corporations. If you get some kind of paycheck, you can thank corporations. If you work for a non-profit or the government, you still have to thank corporations. The non-profit sector and the government wouldn’t have any money to pay you without corporations. It is also important that you understand that making a profit doesn’t equate to “greed” or exploitation. Capitalism has created the greatest society in our world’s history. Even communist countries need corporations to survive, so enjoy a nice, hot cup of reality.


Step 7: The government is inefficient

If you are one of those liberals who believe the government should tax us more in order to take care of society, you need to pay special attention to this step. You need to realize that government bureaucracy will waste most of your tax dollars, while the private sector will put your money to much better use. Even most Democrat politicians understand this to some degree, which is why Hillary’s socialist healthcare proposal was voted down by a majority of both Democrats and Republicans. Go to your local post office or call the IRS to ask a tax question if you need a reminder about government inefficiency.


Step 8: The earth is not your “mother,” and she’s not dying

The time has now come to stop your donations to Greenpeace, The Sierra Club, and every other EnviroNazi organization to which you belong. Face the reality that the earth, society, and our environment are better off today than ever in recorded history and that they are continuing to improve. I realize that many of you tree huggers will have a very difficult time letting go of the Douglas Fir on this one. I would suggest reading The Skeptical Environmentalist by Bjorn Lomborg. Mr. Lomborg is a former member of Greenpeace and is currently a statistics professor at a university in Denmark. He set out to prove the world was in bad shape and ended up surprising himself by proving the exact opposite.


Step 9: Stop smoking the wacky tobaccy

Okay, some of you might need to enter another 12-step program to complete this step. Marijuana is distorting your sense of reality, and you need to stop using it. Besides, you’ll save a fortune on snacks.


Step 10: Eat a hamburger

If God didn’t intend for us to eat animals, he wouldn’t have made them out of meat. You can put your sprouts and tofu on the hamburger, but get some meat into you. You’ll look and feel better than you ever imagined. You can always remind yourself that Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian to get you through this step.


Step 11: Stop re-writing political history

It’s now time to admit that Bill Clinton is a lying-cheating-sexist-racist-rapist jackass, Hillary Clinton is one of the worst role models for women in this country, Al Gore really did lose the 2000 election by every vote tabulation you attempt, Ronald Reagan ended the Cold War and didn’t create the homeless problem, John McCain is not a typical Republican, and Jimmy Carter is a nice man but has one of the worst presidential records of anyone in history.


Step 12: Be a missionary

Once you have completed the previous steps to overcoming liberalism, it’s time for you to share this awakening with others who are not as fortunate. Go out amongst the liberal sheep and spread the good word of your freedom from the chains of ignorance that once bound you. Congratulations, and welcome to reality.

They cant give direct answers because they have to cover all the bases, contact their advisors, get a poll, find out how the vocal lunatic fringe FEELS about it...

Their not dumb. They dont give a flying f00k about illegals. They just care that so far most of middle america is resigned that we have to put up with learning spanish, so they want the new people's vote.

Same with our Rep sellouts.
