Barack Obama, our next President

....Conservatives, frankly, have become purveyors of outrage instead of preachers for a cause. Instead of showing how increasing government harms people, how free markets help people, and how conservative policies benefit all Americans, we scream “Benghazi” and “Fast & Furious.”
We’re off key and off message. We’ve become professional victims dialed up to 10 on the outrage meter. Who the hell wants to listen to conservatives whining and moaning all the time about the outrage du jour? Seriously? Mitt Romney ran a campaign on just how bad things are, but he was rejected by a majority of Americans who felt like he really did not care about them and really had no plans to improve their lives.
Bitching about Benghazi doesn’t do that either.

you got that right. but let's not tell them. the cluster-Chuck has been a real hoot. watching self important people who know Hagel will be the SOD no matter what they have to say about it is priceless.

You failed to prove the mainstream media is NOT remaining silent in an effort to keep the masses uninformed on all those issues...

...and why this is NOT fundamentally dangerous.
FOX is the media arm of the GOP.

so it's one against the other. and as i told someone the other day...people have come to expect lies from FOX but the MSM hasn't shown a constant pattern of doing the same(not saying they don't) so now folks feel that the MSM is a better bet for the real news.

just like it backfired on Mitt, it's done the same to FOX. they can tell it like it really is all day long and the majority will just ignore it. you can't tell lies all the time and then just expect folks to figure out when you're telling the truth.

if the ratings are any indication it really has backfired on FOX.

Pat Caddell....

Can the Republican Party Avoid the Fate of the Whigs?

If present trends continue, the Republicans will likely soon fall out of political viability; and the Grand Old Party will be the Grand Defunct Party. They are well on their way to becoming the 21st Century incarnation of the Whigs.

Let’s consider: At the national level, Republicans have lost four of the last six presidential elections; if one measures the popular vote, they have lost five of the last six. Indeed, over the last six elections, the GOP has averaged approximately 44.8 percent of the popular vote, whereas the Democrats have won 48.8 percent. And the disparity in the electoral college is even more telling: Republicans have won an average of 211 electoral votes over the last six elections, while Democrats have won 327.

These are trends that transcend any one candidate, and any one election. Meanwhile, the Establishment Republican party seems uninterested in learning anything about why they really lost; the goal of DC Republicans today is the generation of conveniently self-serving excuses.

Pat Caddell....

....Romney chose to speak forcefully on other issues, notably his true feelings about many of his fellow Americans--the 47%. Apparently he really does believe that he and his rich friends are overlording “masters of the universe,” engaged in a rich-man’s class warfare against the bottom half of the population.

The “47 percent" of the population that Romney derided as hopelessly dependent included, of course, retirees and war veterans--many of whom voted for him anyway. But of course, many didn’t.

as goes the Tea Party....

In Turnaround, Governor Wants to Spend in Florida

Up for re-election in 2014 and still deeply unpopular, Gov. Rick Scott announced the largest proposed budget in Florida history on Thursday —$74.2 billion, or $4 billion more than last year — and said he wanted to sharply increase education spending.

As his budget centerpiece, the governor proposed raising teacher salaries across the board by $2,500 a year and dedicating $1.2 billion more to public schools. The increase would give Florida schools the largest budget ever, the governor said. Mr. Scott said his other priority was to spur manufacturing jobs by eliminating a sales tax on equipment.

Underscoring his transformation from Tea Party booster to political realist, Mr. Scott, a Republican, also proposed budget increases for the environment and the state’s university system.

the majority will always come out on top.

These were models. Not someone purposefully putting out wrong numbers.

it's all about the money.

we've all seen the ratings drop for FOX. if not enough are watching the ads no one will want to advertise on FOX and Alies will not let that happen. and with the ratings as high as they've been there will be an expectation that they should stay that high, and when the don't....

someday we'll look back at this period in time and wonder what they heck they were thinking before reality fell on their heads.

Of course, this is not true. FOX keeps the folks informed on issues the MSM will not tell them.
The fact that you dismiss any network presenting an opposing point of view and who might very well be right proves you've been brainwashed.
It would be easy to prove the half-truths and corrpution on the part of the mainstream in many instances and the crticism by more than just conservatives.
You would be hard-pressed to find one incident on FOX that was significant enough to counter the evidence mounting against the MSM.
now that's a nice bit of hypocrisy. dismissing opposing viewpoints and all that.

you ever get tired of doing that? seems you never get tired of getting caught doing it.

Democrats might be happy that Sarah Palin will no longer be paid $1 million a year by Fox News, but based on what happened when Glenn Beck left the conservative network, Bill Maher isn't thrilled to see her go.

After Beck left Fox, he took his "patented brand of apocalyptic race baiting" to the Internet and started charging his audience around $10 a month. Then, in 2012, he made $80 million.

If Palin takes a cue from Beck or Rush Limbaugh, she too could make a lot more money off her fans than she did at Fox. But Maher feels that's exactly what makes these pundits "con men":

"They don't care about winning elections; they care about separating rubes from their money. They discovered that there's a fortune to be made by keeping a small portion of America under the illusion that they are always under attack, from Mexicans or ACORN or Planned Parenthood or gays or takers, global warming hoaxers; it doesn't matter. They don't want a majority; they want a mailing list, a list of the kind of gullible 'Honey Boo Boos' out there who think there's a 'War on Christmas' and the Socialist policies of our Kenyan President are so disastrous that the end of the world is coming."

Its just so much easier for the simple mind to assume there's some grand conspiracy with great forces working tirelessly behind the scenes and beneath the surface. You believe this and Fox confirms it therefore Fox is the only "news" outlet that's telling the truth. To the sane its obvious their methods are ham-fisted and that y'all are just easily manipulated. The GOP is coming to the realization that this is a huge liability they can no longer ignore, the rest of us are just laughing while shaking our heads.

With The Fox News Empire In A Ratings Slump, Where's Roger Ailes' Magic Touch?

As a TV pro, Roger Ailes is routinely praised in the press for his Midas touch. According to years of fawning coverage, Ailes has an uncanny ability to tap the programming pulse of the public. If that's true, now would be a good time for him to find his magic stroke because he just signed a contract reportedly worth more than $20 million annually, and two of his most important properties are flailing.

Fox's latest Nielsen numbers are bad. Really bad. Its worst in 12 years. And early indications are the slump may be part of a larger, systemic problem that could cause bigger headache as fast-climbing MSNBC continues to post gains.

President Obama's first term proved to be a ratings winner for Fox News as the channel gleefully projected the inner demons of the right wing and marketed itself as the final defender of freedom. Early 2013 indicators though, suggest that ratings cycle may be played out.

Question: Does Ailes the programming guru have a Plan B?

That's not the Fox chief's only problem. Ailes also runs Fox Business, whose cable ratings remain anemic, and whose entire audience of 25-54 viewers can often fit inside a hockey arena, despite the fact Fox Business is available in 60 million homes coast to coast.

What do you think is the "one way out"?
By the end of this term, the working class will have realized they've been duped, if they haven't already. By then, a third party will seem the only way out. I think something like the "Second Amendment Party" might turn some heads.

Hillary Clinton in 2016: Be Afraid, Republicans

Hillary Clinton stands atop of the Democratic 2016 scrum, set to resume where Bill left off. A second Clinton candidacy would likely put the white vote in play and jeopardize the GOP’s dominance in the Old Confederacy. Recent polls put Hillary ahead of possible Republican challengers in vote-rich Texas and in Kentucky, home of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Tea Party favorite Rand Paul.
