    This Eugene Robinson guy has to be one of the biggest dipshits on MSNBC, he is always the first one they drag out to play the race card any time someone disagrees with Obama, but he wont even apologize for saying Santorum is a weirdo for the way he handled the death of his child. I mean just how sick do you have to be to criticize someones handling of the death of their child?

    He then goes onto justify his comments at 4:05 by saying that "a columnist has an obligation to write what he/she thinks, and write what he/she sees" Of course that obligation only applies to those who write things which support liberal ideas, if you write what you see/think and it doesnt happen to line up with the president then Eugene is the first one out there crying racism.

    Robinson was also the one who wrote the hit piece on Christie, basically calling him a fat ass. It must be nice to live in liberal land, where you can preach tolerance and understanding, and the rules never apply to you.

    I dislike him more then Keith Olberman, Maddow, Schultz, and Mathews combined. This guy has some real issues.

    I agree, Eugene Robinson is just a flat out asshole, with no redeeming qualities, i dont think i have ever seen him say anything intelligent in all his time at MSNBC.

    Well Max, you hit the mark once again. It seems Chris Christie reads ET and follows your posts. :)

    Chris Christie: Eugene Robinson ‘ignorant,’ ‘shouldn’t have a platform to speak’
    Published: 9:14 AM 01/18/2012 | Updated: 10:54 AM 01/18/2012

    Last year, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson had some advice for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: “Find some way to lose weight.” It is advice Robinson gave in his Washington Post column and later on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” His argument was Christie needed to use his weight loss to set an example for a country fighting a so-called obesity epidemic.

    But Christie wasn’t receptive to Robinson’s criticism. On Wednesday’s broadcast of “Morning Joe,” Christie spoke about an interview he conducted with Oprah Winfrey, where he was open about his weight struggle. However, he also criticized Robinson for being ignorant about certain aspects of that issue.

    “It wasn’t hard for me,” Christie said. “The fact is she asked me questions, I answered them, and I told the truth and I told people how I feel. It is a struggle. It has been a struggle for me a lot of years. And so, I hope that other people in the country understand. And I appreciate what you all have been doing and when ignoramuses like Eugene Robinson get on your show and start saying the stuff they say about weight and someone should have a salad and take a walk. I mean, you know as far as I’m concerned, guys like that shouldn’t have a platform to speak because they’re so ignorant.”

    Christie told “Morning Joe” viewers he wasn’t going to hide the fact that his weight issue was “a challenge” and promised to continue being honest about questions regarding his weight.

    “This is a struggle that people have, like a lot of other struggles that people have in life,” he continued. “I am going to be honest about the things that are a challenge to me. And in any way that helps other people, I’m thrilled by it. But all I was trying to do was honestly answer questions about my life that Oprah asked. Because if you go on one of those shows, you have an obligation to honestly answer those questions.”
