McLaughlin: Freedom is Overrated, People Want a Nanny State

Proving just how out of touch with the American people political pundits and news anchors have become, John McLaughlin, host of The McLaughlin Group, has declared the concept of freedom as the “most overrated” political issue of 2009.

The host of the long running public affairs show made the announcement during The McLaughlin Group 2009 Year-End Awards special.

While the rest of the panel on the show described global warming, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and leading bankers as “most overrated”, McLaughlin himself took a shot at the core concept behind the Bill Of Rights and the U.S. Constitution.

“The most overrated is freedom,” McLaughlin said.

“When faced with economic uncertainty, people don’t want freedom. When they can’t see their economic future, they want the nanny state.” he blathered.

Seemingly McLaughlin was living under a rock throughout the “summer of rage” then, as mass protests were held throughout the nation on every political issue going, including the economy.

Neither has he been monitoring the president’s recent approval ratings, which have hit record lows for a president after one year in office.

McLaughlin must have also missed the recent news that a vast majority of Americans have expressed great dissatisfaction on virtually every single issue polled, once again including the economy.

Perhaps Mr McLaughlin can show us some evidence to suggest the American people are happy living in a nanny state at the expense of their freedom, because we don’t see it.
