Frank Luntz, introduced by Brian Kilmeade: 'he's a pollster, Fox News contributor and wonderful person,' appeared on Fox and Friends to explain the significance of the elections in the United Kingdom yesterday. He gave three reasons the Conservative win was important to America:

  1. The pollsters, and thank god I now do communications, got it dead wrong prior to the election, Conservatives (Tories) were dead even with Ed Milliband's Labor Party
  2. They expected a hung Parliament, they did not know who would lead, but David Cameron will be declared the undisputed leader of the Conservative Party.
  3. And finally, this is very important for U.S. foreign policy. This will continue the support for what the U.S. is doing with regards to ISIS and support for Israel. A very important win for right of center people in Europe and America.

Luntz put down the campaign of the Labor Party by comparing it to David Axelrod and President Obama's efforts to make class warfare an election issue. The British, according to Luntz, are too hardened and cynical to fall for the illusion that class warfare exists. Those silly Labor Party supporters just don't know that it's far better for corporations to pay lower taxes while social services are savagely slashed.

Remember that meeting that occurred on the night of the inauguration of President Obama in 2009?

(It was) a four hour, "invitation only" meeting with GOP Hate-Propaganda Minister, Frank Luntz, the below listed Senior GOP Law Writers literally plotted to sabotage, undermine and destroy America's Economy.

Luntz today is thrilled to death that the same awful ideas are being accepted in Europe. I'm not sure how long England will accept these same self-destructive policies before going the way of Alberta, Canada.

It seems odd to me that equal polling for more leftist policies happen before the election and when it comes down to counting the votes, the Conservatives win by a comfortable margin.

British voters reacted with surprise as they awoke to the news. Polls had shown a virtual dead heat in the race, and many expected weeks of wrangling over who would be in power.

Luntz fails to mention the Scottish voted overwhelmingly in opposition to continued austerity, so it wasn't all sunshine for right wingers.

The energized Scottish National Party pulled off a landslide, taking 56 of the 59 seats in Scotland and setting a string of records including the election of Britain’s youngest member of parliament for 350 years — a 20-year-old university student.

It's a bit funny how the Australia election and in Scott Walker's Wisconsin, the Conservatives surprisingly win. It seems that wherever there's a Murdoch-controlled media, the right wingers enjoy unexpectedly comfortable victories.

It concerns me that Luntz says he's now in communications. What does that mean? Is he capable of more sabotage in the future? He's one we mustn't take our eyes off, he has a malevolent heart that will sell out his own mother for the right price. Remember, he bragged that the best presidents weren't necessarily the smartest. By that logic, Reagan was a great president. If you consider sabotaging the U.S. economy great, than I suppose he was right. Frank Luntz works for the Koch Brothers. He does not work for human decency.
