What is Josh Barro’s Damage?

He seems like he is missing a chip. Like he can’t see what is directly in front of him. He has to pass every observation through some mental algorithm that will then analyze and spit out a random answer.

He also seems to jump around jobs a lot and fall off and on the radar.

Something is off about this person.

He is a gay conservative. That alone tells you he's not right.

by Anonymousreply 107/30/2020

Sure, does he look in a jockstrap?

by Anonymousreply 207/30/2020

He's now a Democrat. He was a moderate, mostly fiscal, Republican until Trump. He's perhaps considered a "conservative Democrat" but thankfully they, and moderates, still have power in the Democratic Party. (Witness Biden's nomination.) I read his Twitter although I'm not on Twitter and agree with him most of the time.

If you want the votes of people like him, you need to listen to his views and compromise.

by Anonymousreply 307/30/2020

I believe he does, R2.

by Anonymousreply 407/30/2020

I follow him on Twitter. He's annoyingly inclined to "correct" things that are too liberal. I don't care that he's a centrist, but he never has the same energy in "correcting" things that are too conservative.

Short take: yes, there's something off about him.

by Anonymousreply 507/30/2020

Yes something odd. And sexy. Very hot. It's what's between his ears I'm worried about.

by Anonymousreply 607/30/2020

I've seen him say some dumb shit on MSNBC. I don't care much for him.

by Anonymousreply 707/30/2020

He was raised a hardcore Republican.

He's gay, but used to be closeted and fat.

There's your answer!

by Anonymousreply 807/30/2020

Example, OP? I like him... both from a mental and fuckability perspective.

by Anonymousreply 907/30/2020

Here is an example:

“Okay, so normally I don't buy "Trump is trying to distract" claims, but this is Trump trying to create headlines about him...”

Why would he preface a statement this way. And he says this after even the Federalist came out against it, as if he is going out on some limb with that preface...

Besides, everybody knows that he is always trying to distract the news cycle. Everybody on earth knows that.

He is just plain weird. The guy is just plain weird.

by Anonymousreply 1007/30/2020

Well I think I see his point R10. People look for conspiracy theories like "Trump is trying to distract" when really I think Trump just says dumb shit a lot of the time because he's so impulsive. So he's saying "K I know it's usually BS, but for real this time."

by Anonymousreply 1107/30/2020

I will say I thought Josh's significant other was fuggo tho. I am cuter. Shame I left NYC...

by Anonymousreply 1207/30/2020

Nobody is saying he isn’t sexy.

Just an odd duck.

by Anonymousreply 1307/30/2020

😥, people need to pathologies someone because they consistently disagree with their opinions. Well, at least it allows you nrver question any of your own.

by Anonymousreply 1407/31/2020

R14 No, I'd suggest people need to write coherent sentences.

by Anonymousreply 1507/31/2020

“It’s all just an innocent disagreement” troll has arrived @ r14.

by Anonymousreply 1607/31/2020

He can't just be a competent, unbiased news reporter. That's boring and forgettable. So he needs a gimmick to get noticed.

This thread proves that his gimmick is working.

by Anonymousreply 1707/31/2020

He's not a reporter. That's not his job.

by Anonymousreply 1807/31/2020

This is every self-labeled “centrist;” they’re all crypto-conservatives at best. Barro was a Republican until Trump was elected. He might be a Democrat now, but he’s still as conservative as ever.

by Anonymousreply 1907/31/2020

You can smell the stench of vodka coming off R14’s post.

by Anonymousreply 2007/31/2020

He retweets a lot of right wing people and opinions. Once a conservative always a conservative. I don’t buy his “transformation” into some bleeding heart liberal.

by Anonymousreply 2107/31/2020

R21 he never said he transformed into a liberal. His argument is that the Republican Party left him.

by Anonymousreply 2207/31/2020

He’s like a robot but a defective one.

by Anonymousreply 2307/31/2020

“Conservatives” and “libertarians” were basically suckered into something like with the clams. They are essentially victims of brainwashing.

by Anonymousreply 2407/31/2020

His Scruff profile says he’s a fun top and into a lot of fetishes.

by Anonymousreply 2507/31/2020

R25 don’t ruin it :(

by Anonymousreply 2607/31/2020


Oh yes, your opinion matters to me.

by Anonymousreply 2707/31/2020

Is OP Josh Barro's ex? He's okay, he may be conservative but at least he's not a Trumper. At least you could have a reasoned discussion with him about policy instead of QAnon garbage and conspiracy theories, which is what most conservatives still on the Trump train are into.

by Anonymousreply 2807/31/2020

His hosting of LCRW's "Left, Right, and Center" podcast is excellent.

by Anonymousreply 2907/31/2020

Oops, that's KCRW

by Anonymousreply 3007/31/2020

Libertarianism is largely old fashioned market Republicanism without the racism and with respect for civil liberties and the rule of law. It would be a better world if we replaced the Republicans as the party of the center right. That's what I'm working forward. Someone has to be there to pick up the pieces when the GOP implodes.

[quote] something odd. And sexy. Very hot.

Proof that gays, even when being led to the guillotine, will find something hot about the man sharpening the blade

by Anonymousreply 3207/31/2020

I find him off putting. Every time I see him I think "cute" and then I think "what the fuck is he saying?" I don't care for him at all and stopped following his Twitter feed.

by Anonymousreply 3307/31/2020


by Anonymousreply 3407/31/2020

In practice, libertarianism is just more feed the rich nonsense. We need a period of real live leftism in this countries, like the 1930s through the 1950s, to get this country back to normal. The real good ole days meant unionization, a commitment to social security, the GI Bill (which given World War II pretty much extended to every family), that kind of thing. No more worrying that Jeff Bezos needs a tax cut. That's just some silly idiocy we can dispense with. An actually progressive tax rate. Some redistribution, not all, it's okay to have rich and poor in general, but not Gilded Age rich and poor.

by Anonymousreply 3507/31/2020

Libertarians are sad sacks. They got brainwashed by Ayn Rand.

They’re always suckers and usually fall for lots of cons. Not just the one.

by Anonymousreply 3607/31/2020

R35 I think most Republican voters (but not Republican politicians) would support all of that and more if we could just stop all the immigration. All of that stuff you mention was only possible because the country barely admitted any immigrants back then.

Heck, I would support Medicare for All in exchange for a complete 20 year shutdown of immigration.

by Anonymousreply 3707/31/2020

R30: The term is radio show. It's a show on the radio, the podcast is actually the radio showed recorded for download at your convenience. I find Josh too esoteric in his right wing mannerisms. All of the comments in this thread saying "what did he just say?" are spot on. Too cute by half is the term that probably best describes him.

R31: I have no respect for any third party or its supporters until you people get on board with some of proportional representation. Until you all do that, there will only be two parties that can win anything in this country.

by Anonymousreply 3807/31/2020

His damage is probably the damage that all conservatives have: the belief that the people who have suffered most in the past few decades are the rich. The stupid idea that what we need to do is worry first and foremost about whether the rich are happy, with their tax rate and everything else, and then we can focus on other things. This is a top heavy economy with a ridiculous income distribution. That is what needs to stop. When Josh Barro gets that he will finally become part of the solution.

by Anonymousreply 3907/31/2020

who's his BF?

by Anonymousreply 4007/31/2020

apparently he's all over Scruff. who has had him?

by Anonymousreply 4107/31/2020

R40 he's married.

by Anonymousreply 4207/31/2020

married and all over scruff? ruh roh.

by Anonymousreply 4307/31/2020

He needs to be reprogrammed. He seems to be malfunctioning lately.

by Anonymousreply 4407/31/2020

Is there any gay public figure that is monogamous?

by Anonymousreply 4507/31/2020

What an ill-fitting jacket he's wearing in the OP's photo.

by Anonymousreply 4607/31/2020

Remember when he used to be really fat?

by Anonymousreply 4707/31/2020

It's funny. I lead this very boring, very monogamous life, and yet, I don't think monogamy is some ideal that everyone has to live up to. It's worked out fine for me, but I truly don't care if it works out for anyone else. You need to have lots of sex with lot of other guys? Well, okay, do that.

by Anonymousreply 4807/31/2020

When he's on Scruff is he just looking for himself? Or for him and his husband?

by Anonymousreply 4907/31/2020

R48 same. it just seems like a lot of work

by Anonymousreply 5007/31/2020

and I get he's kinda hot. Just wish he'd shed his baggage from the Reagan years. Wish everyone would.

by Anonymousreply 5107/31/2020

Is he old enough to have been around during Reagan? I thought he was a 30-something millennial.

by Anonymousreply 5207/31/2020

no, but he lives in that mindset r52. The mindset that Reagan was perfect and Trump is some terrible deviation. That's what I meant. Everyone needs to get that Reagan was the start of the suck.

by Anonymousreply 5307/31/2020

You wouldn't think it but his ass is thiccccc

by Anonymousreply 5408/05/2020

R54 Does that makes him a PAWG? Phat Ass White Guy

by Anonymousreply 5508/05/2020

Conservatism is a mental illness and libertarianism is a personality disorder. These people are not normal and can’t be trusted or taken seriously.

by Anonymousreply 5608/05/2020

Wow, I'm surprised a man who has always struggled with his weight happens to have a thiccccc ass!

by Anonymousreply 5708/05/2020

I ate his ass one night (when he and the bf were having some “time off”)—and he came without touching himself. Oh, he was wearing a jockstrap.

by Anonymousreply 5808/05/2020

He's on Scruff so I don't think they have to "be on a break" for him to hookup

by Anonymousreply 5908/05/2020

What's his dick like, R58? Sorry not sorry.

by Anonymousreply 6008/05/2020

Republicans were brainwashed, some as children, and the dissonace between the bill of goods they were sold and reality is enough to make anyone cuckoo.
