He says Gov. Bob McDonnell blew it by embroiling himself in the ultrasound/abortion controversy.

Im sure Roger is solid as a rock..
but he should have worn her sweater.
He looks like Bobby Knight wearing Captain
I would love to see some Chris Christie as the Veeper. No President should have eight years. Look what happened last time.
#1 With all the stripes he also looks like a referee riding a zebra…
Marvin..all the way..
He would appeal to those of the
Puppet demographic…and lets face it
he wouldnt be bothering us with fake heart episodes.
No more bull$8i7..
Roger Stone is a piece of work. You’ve got to love the zoot-suit.
He looks like he should be on ESPN.
Could somebody buy Joe a GED? Lordy.
Suze Hun …
Could you at least put forth a valiant effort?
Something that at least appears on paper a little
beyond your education?
Something that has some substance or form..something
that is at least a little humorous?
Its ok…the world is like a pond. Its a little scary when one is over their head.
Those commentors who speak only to the business suit would be well advised to read a current issue of GQ. That style is all the rage. The comments made by Mr. Stone are no nonsense and very considered.
I always get honest political opinion from Roger Stone and his years as an insider are obvious. Who else would have known that Nixon quote? I believe he has gone Libertarian now but he didn’t let that cloud the questions he was asked. All in all, a good interview.
Roger Stone is a genius. I have been following him my whole political career. He is the ultimate political insider and strategist. He tells it like it is.
I agree with Mr. Stone. Rubio might be a good candidate but Gov. Christies has proven himself unfit for office by approving so many taxpayer funded subsidies for companies in NJ that do not need the money.
His opinions are as important as anyone else who’s an outsider to the campaigns, i.e. not at all. In addition, anyone who has followed Roger Stone his entire career knows that he was a Nixon dirty tricks operative, a Roy Cohn bribe delivery bagman, head of the young Republicans when it was recruiting the likes of Ralph Reed and Grover Norquist, a dirty tricks mentor to Lee Atwater, a lobbysist for Donald Trump’s casino interests, and best of all, a divorcee who lives a swinger lifestyle (anonymous sex with multiple strangers). In short, the perfect Republican.
Joe was right about him wearing Capt. Kangaroo’s suit, no matter what the gay fashionistas of GQ are saying this month.
Wow, looks like we have some Roger Stone followers who get messages about any references to him. Probably some work for him.
Stone is a W&L grad, btw. And he’s got a giant tattoo of Nixon on his back.
Where are we, on the Red Carpet with Joan Rivers? I suggest the Fashion Police play the video again and LISTEN to Mr. Stone. He brings his unparalleled experience and political acumen to his analyses of the current race toward the 2012 elections. You’ll find that Mr. Stone’s remarks are right on the money. Besides, how many pundits or politicians can quote a personal comment from Richard Nixon?
“a giant tattoo of Nixon on his back”? Are you kidding?
#17 Dan, I don’t know much about Stone myself, but according to Wikipedia he went to George Washington, not W&L. Unless he went to W&L Law School.
@15 I think if we change that to “lobbycysts” then it is a more accurate term.
I could be wrong about W&L. I thought Dwayne Yancey had let me in on that one.
There’s a GREAT story about Robert Stone in The New Yorker by Jeffrey Toobin. The online version has him shirtless, from the front. The online version doesn’t have the view from the back, but you can see it here.
Did I mention the guy is into swinging?
Wow, that is right up there with the guy who tattooed Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination”, on his arm, and apparently ignored Leviticus 19:28 “Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD”.
This week Toobin has an excellent article about Citizens United and John Roberts. Or…How the Country Was Sold.
Wow. When it comes to Roger Stone, there’s more concern over his wardrobe and personal life than his insights into politics. The fact that he has been a political operative since the Nixon administration speaks well of him. He had to be smart to have made a career out of politics, dirty trickster or not. I’m paying attention to who Mitt Romney will pick based on what Stone said in the video.
I’ll go on the record as an admirer, in many ways, of Roger Stone. Heck, I worked for Nixon, too.
And btw, just to to keep things on the up-and-up: Charles Terry and Rosalind D’Angelo are posting from identical out-of-state IP addresses.
Welcome, Floridians! Here’s my rule: one phony name per poster. It helps the rest of us keep things straight with regard to who we’re arguing with.
(Roger, is that you?)
My public speaking classes took place in the valley..
Right over behind where the old steam locomotive rested
on top of the scrap heap off Franklin Road.
One of the things that THAT Roger told us,
“Knock off the uuhhs and ahhs..and dont wear anything
in front of the class that makes em read your shirt rather
than listen to you.
I guess the oversized suit is what Rog Stones wanted us to see.
One thing is for sure that oddly dressed style of the sauna boys
brings out in me ..how urbane I am not.
Perhaps Mr Stones can find a Sauna Dude to offset Mitt-s “rigidity”
He is a true American…In a Nixon sort of way.
Wow, Stone has really got the operatives out to praise him. Charles Terry, Roasalind, Justin — maybe a couple of others. Couldn’t be more obvious.
“The fact that he has been a political operative since the Nixon administration speaks well of him. He had to be smart to have made a career out of politics, dirty trickster or not.”
Was this meant to be a defense of Stone?

Metro Columnist Dan Casey knows a little bit about a lot of things but not a heck of a lot about most things. That doesn't keep him from writing about them, however. So keep him honest!
