Barack Obama, our next President

Failure of the Conservative Media to Predict Election Symptomatic of Bankrupt Ideology

If you listened to any prominent right wing media outlet during the week leading up to the election, you would have thought it was in the bag for Mitt Romney. Right wing pundits like Karl Rove, William Kristol and Charles Krauthammer predicted a close but definitive victory for Obama, Dick Morris boldly predicted the GOP would break 300 electoral votes, and incredibly, George Will thought Romney would take a whopping 326 (Romney won 206 electoral votes). In fact, the Right wing media was positively giddy with excitement believing they had finally unseated the Muslim Communist presiding in the White House.

Meanwhile, the supposedly ‘liberal’ media was projecting a fairly decisive win for the President, in large part due to the predictions of the New York Time’s polling expert Nate Silver.

Why the difference?

In short, the Right used ideology as the intellectual underpinning of their projections, while everyone else used facts. Nate Silver isn’t a mystic or the modern incarnation of Nostradamus – he’s an extraordinarily thorough polling analyst who bases predictions on a formula that accounts for real world margins of error and reporting discrepancies. It isn’t perfect, but the methodology is pretty airtight when it comes to projecting accurate odds. That’s why every half decent political analyst took Silver’s projections seriously and discounted the Right wing noise machine when it came to picking a winner.

This theme of fantasy vs reality goes far deeper than picking the winner in Presidential elections. It goes to the heart of what now constitutes conservatism in America, and why it is in perpetual decline.

http://thedailybanter.com/2012/11/failure-of-...

The Right believes that because it believes something, it must be true. And they keep finding out that it doesn’t.
Are you ignoring a battery of unfairly constitutionally protected and bully bias Liberal Media we can not fight against?

can you vote against Santa Claus?

Liberals won because the unfair advantage of the liberal media, including tax payer funded Public Broadcasting media brain washing the kids!

No fair playing field and you know it!

Nothing wrong with Conservatism but we our own tax payer funded liberal media against our own will using out own money!

I bet you will not agree to defund liberal media right?

You happy because Goliath won?

David versus Goliath!

My Serbian friend over here is totally correct. Clinton chose to bomb Serbian civilian targets from 100000 feet in order to avoid risking planes shot down and STILL the serbs shot down two stealth fighters.

The bridge across Novi Sad survided the bombing from the nazis, but not Bill Clinton. The funny part, N. S. is in Vojvodina, with a strong Hungarian minority where there was no significant war machinery.

Today, Kosova is turning into another Kashmir. But what does that mean to the average liberal. They probably don't even know which side of the globe Serbia is located.

Ok..Even if as soon as report of attack had come in. If at that moment Obama had called for troops to be sent it was all over and people dead by that time....And we cant have hundred of troops at every plave Americans are at in that region....
As far as the video deal I will agree there...The muslim radicals dont like us dont want us there...A video might upset them more but they are already upset with us being there.
I dont get why your attacking Obama for people being killed in a war torn dangerous region...Did you call for Bush to be impeached or arrested when he let thousands die on USA SOIL?? Bet you did not...WAR IS HELL...It is VERY dangerous region over there...Best bet would to close all military bases all embassies and get the heck out of there....BUT NO GOP OF DEM WILL DO THAT....
Yes they had asked for help....But we have many areas over there calling for more troops..We cnat get enough to them all....Oh and even if we had had lets say 100 more troops there the chance is we would have many more dead then 4....
It amazes me the lengths that you will go to to let Obama off the hook.

Romney wasn't the ideal candidate. But in this economy, a proven businessman seemed to most of us a clear no-brainer.
Keep in mind the democrats have no one to blame anymore. It's the democrat party whose fate is really on the line. Not the other way around.

It's MUCH MUCH worse. However, the dumb liberal haters still think it is the people that happen to read a bible that is the big problem.

How many wars will Obama be involved in during his second term? How many more "green revolutions" will he sponsor? Finally, how many other diplomats and seals will be left hanging dry? Well, as long as the media keeps giving him cover, quite a few is likely.

A primary care clinic close to the ER I am working at will be clsing it's door on Februiary the 2nd 2013. THis just got to us today and is definitely a big news.
The docs and nurses will likely find work somewhere, but the rest....
Here's the problems with this story:
1.David(he asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) told Host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that elections have consequences and that at the end of the day, I need to survive.
I'm sure "DAVID" voted for Mitt.
2. Obamacare does NOT start until 2014. So how the hell does it cause a clinic to close today?
3. Never heard of a business that had to close because more of their customers were able to pay instead of shoplifting.

More good news! Just found a way I can get citizenship in another country to avoid taxes in the U.S.

This is great. Now I have a way to screw the Blue state I live in and the Socialist Country as well when the time comes.

If I can figure this out, libratds, imagine how many people why have a lot more money than I do will do the same.

You think you can soak the rich? Well, maybe a little, but our largest tax revenue year came in 2007 under Bush. I never saw a liberal policy that worked long-term.

I will enjoy screwing you libtards. I will have gotten my income from you, but won't be paying back.

Thanks for giving me the incentive, tards. This Obama thing might be OK for me after all!

Maybe the US should do like 100s of other nations do around the world. Keep our noses out of their business and worry about our own. Never see Canada all up in arms about all this crap and they seem just fine and happy.

Yawk longs fer the long,
Is sick fer th' thick,
After fifty cold years
With a stick fer a prick

She rides through the streets
On her barleystraw broom
Then as the dawn breaks
She returns to her tomb

A tomb it mus' be
For it harbors the dead
As Yawkie lies down
Alone in her bed.

Alone in her bed
But not in her mind
The Debil waits there
To spread her behind.

In January, when every one looks at their paychecks they will realize they voted for the wrong candidate. The average workers pay check will be $400 lighter. Obama's not worth $400.
