He's asked how he would define his conservatism (he was always labeled as that in the media). He says here that he never said he was a conservative. He said he was a libertarian, but over time, after the financial crisis, he calls himself a Neo-liberal. He says he's a Utilitarian. He's suspect of regulation.
Josh Barro: My Ideology (Video at link)
Josh answers the question: How would you characterize your conservatism?
Josh Barro is an American journalist, currently the Politics Editor at Business Insider. He has previously written for Bloomberg View, and before that was a Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute.
This video is part of the Dish's Ask Anything interview series and was recorded on May 30, 2013 in New York, NY.
He does look sort of haggard and gaunt these days. Is he really a tweeker?
Incidentally, I recall him liking Nasty Pig on FB.
Josh Barro DEFINITELY needs facial hair and a soft key light... without those he's one of those guys that has well-proportioned features,a strong jaw,a straight nose and masculine head shape yet is STILL not particularly good-looking.
And he knows it.
I can't speak to the veracity of the meth angle but a lot of former fatties go overboard on the weight loss and end up looking drawn and unhealthy...he's probably in a binging/deprivation tailspin.
Compulsive,type A guys like him have difficulty with moderation and usually wind up positive.
[quote]Incidentally, I recall him liking Nasty Pig on FB.
His twitter feed is very anti-republican lately.
He was a fan of Nasty Pig on Facebook until he either deleted it or locked his page down.
He's really slimmed down for tv exposure. He used to be a pudgy Italian boy.
I never, ever would have known thats the same guy . Fat Josh, would not have dated. Thin Josh, let me at him. Amazed what gaing and or losing weight, will do.
The fat layers must hang off him. Lots of stretchy shin, with stretch marks. Anyone got a post-fattie shirtless pic to prove otherwise ?
Barro's friends with Nasty Pig's marketing guy.
Also - shirtless Josh, please.
He's anti Republican lately. But he's also pretty anti-Democratic Party and even Obama. He seems to be a contrarian a lot of the times, but some times he says things I really agree with.
The "suspect of regulation"/libertarian thing shows him to have more than a thick streak of "entitled white-privileged male douchebag" in him, though.
He blocked me on twitter after I went on an anti-libertarian tirade (posting lots of backing evidence and facts, not just calling names).
He didn't even follow me.
I did follow him, but how he even saw my tweets, I'm not sure. And so odd that he blocked me like that.
[quote]He blocked me on twitter after I went on an anti-libertarian tirade (posting lots of backing evidence and facts, not just calling names).
I'd block you too.
He's VERY well hung.
How do you know, R17? Details!
AWG alert! seriously nothing special at all. He really makes your mangina moist? Low standards I guess.
spoiled rich kid neoliberal. No thanks
in finance? probably a cokehead
He tweeted today that someone had edited his Wikipedia profile.
Sorry haters, he's cute. He does NOT have a haggard ex-fatty look. No turkey neck at all.
What is his anus like??
Recently I noticed him on MSNBC looking very, very tanned and rather gaunt. Then I saw him the very next day looking pale as could be. Apparently the spray-on tan didn't last very long.
I think he looked better when he was a little heavier with facial hair.
Whatever he has, I hope he doesn't give it to adorable Steve Kornacki.
He's not as sexy as my Ari!
I'd give him $10 to pose in a jockstrap.
Boy, you guys sure have low standards for hotness. In that Vimeo clip, you could lube a Buick with the oil on his face.
R17, is that because you're a libertarian asshole?
I'd bet he's ridiculously egotistical.
He's kinda cute, but "smoking hot"? Ummmmm ..... no.
He is VERY hot.
He's no Jeremy W. Peters.
He blocked me from Twitter because I asked him how big his cock was.
Of course he's single. Would a shameless whore have it any other way?
He's cute, but soooo obnoxious in person. Jeremy W. Peters on the other hand is interesting, but soooo not cute in person.
Josh is very short. He looks to be about 5'5" on TV. He also needs perfect lighting to appear hot.
I like the bearded guy with 3 names who has been on MSNBC a lot lately. His name sounds latino.
As a fellow "former fattie" like Josh I just want to say after finding this thread: I wouldn't fuck any of you queens with Rush Limbaugh's dick. The fucking ridiculousness of trying to tear someone down for being fat, or losing weight, is so 3rd-grade-bully I can't even take you people seriously. I guess you guys never got over being picked on in grade school?
He was tweaking on Thanksgiving. One of his off-the-wall comments (and remember, this is coming from a Harvard grad who's considered an intellectual):
"Cyber Monday is where everyone is supposed to have cyber sex, right?"
He's become really fucking hot. So fuckable.
Who's hot bottom boy is he?
He's gaining weight again. Must be off the meth.
Go away, he's mine.
He blogged recently about eating at Inn & Out Burgers while in LA. He trashed the food, supposedly leaving half uneaten. He's fallen off the wagon, why else would he even go there?
Don't get fat and unfuckable again, Josh!!
Saw him recently and I'm not exaggerating when I point out he looked paunchy.
OP thinks he's "smoking hot"? Really? That means OP is desperate. No standards. Geez.
Barro's hot and looks like he throws a mean fuck.
He comes off as straight-acting on Bill Maher's show.
I'm watching him on the Cycle right now. Not sure about the beard, but his open collar reveals he is a hairy little thing.
I expected him to sport downy, translucent golden elfin hair like the rest of his species.
Barro bump. He was sporting that open-necked look on Chris Hayes's show.
He's tweeting in defense of Chris Christie's vaccine choice message with false equivalences.
Sometimes he makes sense, other times he's a doorknob.
HIs look is the same way, one day cute, another day fug.
He's a Right-winger. Thread closed.
How do people know/think he's using meth? That's kinda severe, isnt it?
Josh is all over MSNBC yesterday and again this morning on Steve Kornacki's show. He is smoking hot, I can confirm that. The facial hair growth works for him. Also, he smiles for the camera. He's often got his mouth open, but seriously, he looks good with his mouth open.
And he's super smart and knowledgeable. He won that quiz. Trounced them, actually.
His rise is impressive. Every job he gets, he excels at and then moves up a notch.
I want to hate fuck his fat ass.
His chest looked hairless today. Perhaps he has shaved it.
Back in 2011, Josh was at the Republican Nat'l Convention. He later went on Chris Hayes' show and remarked that, for a family values party, the Tampa bars with gogo boys were packed. Chris screamed with excitement at the mention of gogo boys. Not roared, he screamed. Comparable to the Princess Diana death scream. I love Chris and his penguin arms, but he is as gay as they come, despite the beard.
He looks bear-ish to me!
Oh, God, his cuteness is also on Melissa Peery's show, with that charming smile. What a babe.
It looks like he's got his own MSNBC show, Fridays at 2. Oh, that could be a cuteness overload!
He's small enough, I think I could bounce him on my knee. Is he small enough to be considered a pocket gay?
Go to a Log Cabin Republican's web site's forum. Stop shilling for this shitstain on here.
[quote]And he's super smart and knowledgeable.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
