First he was a Dem, then he fucked prostitutes and got busted, hates Hillary and now Obama and switches to the Republicans.

You on the right can have him.

What a doofus and a bitch...

Dick Morris calls Ron Paul ‘horrific’ (http://www.politico.com/blogs/onmedia/0311/Dick_Morris_calls_Ron_Paul_horrific.html#)

If only Dick Morris would tell us how he really feels about libertarians.

During a radio interview with Peter Schiff (http://schiffradio.com/pg/jsp/charts/audioMaster.jsp?dispid=301&pid=51808&f=NTE4MDgtdHJ1ZS0wMy8wNy8yMDEx), a former economic adviser to Ron Paul’s presidential campaign, Dick Morris thought he’d be talking about his new book, and seemed annoyed when he found himself discussing trends within the Republican Party.

Schiff, who said he noticed that nearly a third of the people he met at CPAC came from the “Ron Paul/Gary Johnson wing” of the GOP, with the rest in the more traditional conservative camp of Mitt Romney, asked Morris how he thought this would play out in the presidential race.

“I strongly oppose Ron Paul,” Morris said. “I think he’s horrific. He wants us to end the War on Drugs. He wants us to end the War on Terror.”

“Do you think we’re winning the war on drugs?” Schiff interjected.

“No, because we’re not fighting it,” Morris replied.

“We’re not fighting it?” Schiff asked. “We don’t have enough laws against drugs?”

“No,” Morris replied. “We should drug test every high school student. We should drug test everybody that gets a student loan. Anybody that’s using drugs should not get a government student loan.”

Schiff argued that there was something vaguely socialist about the government giving out student loans in the first place, but Morris disagreed, and became increasingly annoyed.

“Peter, I’d like to talk about my book, which is ‘Revolt: How to Defeat Obama and Repeal his Socialist Programs,” Morris complained. “You know what, Peter? You talk to yourself for the next 15 minutes. That seems to be what you want to do.”

And with that, he hung up.

Morris’s feelings about Ron Paul are not a secret, as he called him “crazy” in a column in 2007. But the drug testing for all high school students is new, as far as I can tell. Morris did not respond to a request for comment.

UPDATE: Morris emails to clarify: "Yes, I support drug testing for all high school students with those who fail getting rehab. I support drug testing for all recipients of student loans and those that fail should be tested again and, if they fail, the loan should be terminated."

Heh! Heh! I already saw this and posted it elsewhere. Morris pimps himself to the highest bidder on either side of the aisle. ( He worked for Clinton remember?) Here he just wants to replace his fascialism for Obama's while he seeks to perfect man using govt. He has a nerve calling his new book "Revolt!" What a tard.

His socialist programs don't seem to be working. Didn't you see the other thread? Oh here, I'll post it for you again because I think you're neat...

If you told most Americans ten years ago that in 2011 over 43 million Americans would be on food stamps hardly anyone would have believed you.

But yet here we are.

Let me make myself clear—not everything in his book is bad or socialist. For instance state fiscal problems will force states into bankruptcy and while in bankruptcy they can cancel all union contracts.
The teacher's unions do need to be busted so school boards and principals can run their schools and allow true reform to happen. He's correct there.

First off, Peter Schiff is awesome, and it's a damn shame he didn't win in CT.

Second, while i disagree with the idea, the result would be positive. Less debt = a win for everyone.

Are you saying this is just a back door to hardly anyone getting a student loan?

You seriously believe all high schoolers should get a drug test? Who is going to pay for it?

Just ftr, he was a Republican advisor (Trent Lott) before he crossed over and signed on to the Clinton team. I don't know that he was ever a democrat.

At $100-150 per UA with a licensed facility would add up really quick for the state budgets.

Wow. I hadn't really cared for Dick Morris or his schtick for a while, but this puts me over into active dislike. Holy cow, mandatory drug testing for all high school students? We aren't fighting this pathetic "war on drugs"?

Does anyone have a problem with drug testing before you are given fed/state money? Really? You have to be F'ing kidding me.

Either enforce drug laws now or relax them. FFS. The idiocy of our public has no bounds.

Not just yes, hell F'ing yes, I've got a problem with it. You and Dick Morris might be prepared to urinate on the 4th amendment, but I am not.

I have a problem with drug testing under any circumstances. It presumes guilt.

yes. in a way i guess. "free money" has become far too prevalent in higher education.

though i'm also of the belief that a majority of those receiving student loans are not drug users, muchtheless drug abusers.

That is not the part of the OP I quoted.

No, imo we need not be testing every HS student. No reason to drug test anyone, imo, w/o probable cause.

If i don't show up for work high, i do my damn job and i do it well, my employer has no need to concern itself with what I choose to consume during my time at home.

iirc, anyone with a drug conviction on their record is barred for a period of time from receiving gov grants / loans for education.

though, i did attend college a few years ago, so that may have changed.

i fail to see how preventing someone from accessing high education decreases the likelihood of said person becoming a repeat offender.

We had a local politician that tried to get passed a bill that would require drug testing to get on public assistance and I thought it was a great idea.

If i were greedy and that were the case i would be a billionaire by now with all this "Free" stuff being passed around.
