    Bob Novak was a class act and one of those talking heads who knew of what he talked abobut. he was respected not only by those who disagreed him but importently by those who disagreed with him.

    Novak was a professional and he started professional life as a reporter.

    Even people such as 'CUE BALL' James Carville said "What you saw on television was an ideological guy, a fire-breathing right-wing guy," But Novak "still had the sort of ethos of the reporter."

    Many people forget what is stated in the article I linked above "While staunchly conservative, Novak opposed the invasion (( Iraq )) and was frequently critical of the Bush administration. "

    Novak was a thinking man therefore he was a thinking conservative.

    I know that he developed the show Crossfire and he was also on CAPITAL GANG. Novak brought not only class but intelligence to the political debate.

    You did not have to agree with Bob Novak on all issues in order to respect he earned the respect long ago and kept earning it when he appeared on political shows.

    Forever Rememberance !!! Bob !!! Forever Rememberance !!!
    In the past couple of years, Conservatives have lost Buckley and Novak. There won't be anyone to replace these thinking Conservative icons for a long time, and the Conservative movement is now missing 2 important mouthpieces of its ideology. Today is a sad day.

    Who will replace Novak or Buckley? It won't be the likes of Coulter, Beck, Limbaugh, or Hannity, who don't think any issue out at all, but only repeat scripted talking points like trained parrots, without using a single cell in their brains.

    May God bless you, Robert. You will be sorely missed.

    I have to say my favorite episode of Crossfire was when Frank Zappa was on going toe to toe with Novak

    Class, it's what you don't bring to this forum...
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    I don't have any problem with someone labeling my response as classless. In fact, I take it as a compliment.

    I missed that one. Anyone remember Bill Press on Xfire ? I could not stand him since Bill Press reminded me of a liberal Saun Vannity !!!

    Re: Political columnist Robert Novak dies at 78

    This article cannot be correct; Novak was hardly the "diehard Conservative."


    Novak was a registered Democrat despite his conservative political views. He held more centrist views in his early career, and he supported the Democratic presidential candidacies of John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, of whom he was a friend.

    Novak's views turned further rightward through the 1970s, but Novak remained strongly critical towards Ronald Reagan and his supply side economics in the early 1980s

    He also generally tended toward low-tax, small-government libertarian views, but his disagreements with mainstream Republicans and neoconservatives—specifically his opposition to the Iraq War[12]— earned him the label of being a "paleoconservative".

    Novak expressed support for Ron Paul's bid for the presidency.[13] Novak was a hard-line social conservative as well, holding pro-life and anti-divorce views.

    Re: Political columnist Robert Novak dies at 78

    he was the opposite of a neo con

    he was a genghis con, i say with great affection

    traditional isolationist conservative

    he opposed 41's war, even

    so did pat

    very, very few on the right stood up against herbert walker's venture on behalf of kuwait

    novak was a great man

    jfk was a long time ago, america was a very different place

    and kennedy was a completely different dem

    everything changed in 68, in chicago, when the far left captured the party

    by 72, mcgovern

    it took centrist bill clinton to bring it back, the NEW DEMOCRAT

    democratic leadership council, DLC---crucial to the success of bubba

    triangulation, baby! (or, bubba!)

    obama, tho, has swung wider than SF nance

    interesting thread, bob woulda loved (most of) it

    rip, mr novak

    say hi to mr evans for us

    You forgot about the part where he was a traitor to his nation.
