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.

Sure, but...how does he look in a jockstrap?

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.

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 Anonymous||reply 5||07/30/2020|
Yes something odd. And sexy. Very hot. It's what's between his ears I'm worried about.

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

He was raised a hardcore Republican.
He's gay, but used to be closeted and fat.
There's your answer!

Example, OP? I like him... both from a mental and fuckability perspective.
|by Anonymous||reply 9||07/30/2020|
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 Anonymous||reply 10||07/30/2020|
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."

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Anonymous||reply 38||07/31/2020|
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.

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.
