Dennis Prager pushing God, altruism and attacking selfishness. You just have to listen to the first answer, which lasts only until 2'41". This clip has over half a million views in about two weeks time, so it's popular among Conservatives.

Really quite bad. He hasn't learned anything and he was turned off by Ayn Rand according to another clip on youtube, so he allegedly has knowledge of better ideas.

To be sure, there are some good points in the answers he gives, but they are overwhelmed by the bad.

Rush Limbaugh is worlds ahead of this guy. Rush is probably the best popular conservative commentator out there.

Well he has an interesting point though.

It is true that America is unique, and that we have lost our values to Dewey and his ilk. His statement of smaller government being a moral issue is more or less true. He didn't talk about God more than any other conservative does.

This isn't surprising at all to me, he wasn't attacking anyone like Howar Roark, he was attacking concrete bound Europeans who can't imagine principles and just want free stuff. If he saw someone like Howard Roark, he would probably say something hilarious like "Look how selfless he is, he is acting so responsible, and working so hard, feeding his kids and caring for his loved ones and standing on principle even though when things are hard."

He is attacking the peter keatings of the world not anyone like us.
