• Mark Levin Goes Off: ‘Too Many Conservatives Like Centralized Government’

    Talk radio host Mark Levin was fuming after he heard South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham refer to himself as the conservative who can help make America number one again.

    Graham has supported “one radical judge and justice after another” and is “pro-amnesty,” Levin said in reaction to Graham’s declaration that he was in the “mainstream” of conservatism.

    Setting his sights on GOP presidential hopeful Jeb Bush, Levin said Bush is too busy “trying to figure out how to get around the conservative base,” he’s “poked his finger in the eye of conservatives,” and is “positioning himself as the anti-conservative” except when it’s convenient for him to tout his conservatism.

    Levin questioned whether its conservative to support Common Core, as Jeb Bush openly does, or any expansion of federal power in education.

    “It’s become apparent to me that too many conservatives like centralized government, even while they preach otherwise,” Levin said on his radio show last night.

    Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker won a recent Iowa stroll poll, putting him at the top of the pack among GOP voters in the state that decides who will win the first 2016 caucuses. Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) came in at a close second.

    Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register Iowa Poll, taken last week, also shows Walker leading a wide-open Republican race with 15 percent. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky got 14 percent and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee received 10 percent.

    Bush is struggling, for reasons that Levin stressed. Bush trailed in the poll with 8 percent. Lindsey Graham wasn’t a statistical factor in the poll. No one believes he’s a serious candidate.
