Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Frank Luntz: Fox Viewers "Ought To Be Outraged Because, Day In And Day Out, They Were Told" Romney Would Win
http://mediamatters.org/video/2012/11/10/fran...

After Election Losses, Media Agree That Fox News Has Damaged The GOP

The American Prospect's Paul Waldman wrote that Fox and other conservative media are effective at "whipping up stories out of nothing and forcing the mainstream media to pay attention, capable of keeping their troops in line and bucking up their morale, capable of quickly disseminating messages far and wide, creating new stars and enforcing discipline." But, he added, the success of this misinformation resulted in the "single most damaging moment for Mitt Romney in this election, the 47 percent tape." Waldman further wrote that Fox and other conservative media may be "the right's Achilles' Heel."

Salon's Alex Pareene suggested that Fox "knows it's constantly lying to its audience" and that it discovered "constant lying isn't [a] consistently effective electoral strategy." Conor Friedersdorf of The Atlantic likewise argued that misinformation from Fox and conservative media cost Romney the election and wrote that "right-leaning outlets like Fox News and Rush Limbaugh's show are far more intellectually closed than CNN or public radio. If you're a rank-and-file conservative, you're probably ready to acknowledge that ideologically friendly media didn't accurately inform you about Election 2012."

And The Telegraph's Dan Hodes, in a column headlined "Fox News is killing the Republican party," even posited that "Fox News, widely perceived to be one of the Republican party's greatest assets, has actually become a liability to it....

I would not be surprised IF...
IRS took a 'special' <wink> interest in Bain, Mitts missing returns, and his cohorts in the Boca video.
The GOP resorted to lies and personal attacks...
They lost considerably more than most of their supporters understand.
2014 could be the proverbial 'last nail'
As they should. Dictators or simply those who have ignored and will continue to ignore the constitution, usually go after those who oppose them.

Maybe Romney and all the rich contributors should not only be audited <wink> but be exiled. Or maybe, now hear me out because this would create a lot of jobs: resurrect those internment camps used to corral Japanese Americans during WWII. Like another Democrat in history, Obama could have millions of known traitors be sent to them for the next four years. Or to be more futuristic, we could establish districts like in the Hungar Games. Only Democrats get to live in the Capital District.

It will come as little surprise to intellectually honest Americans who appreciate good journalism that a study published December 10th by the University of Maryland, found that people who turn to Fox News on a regular basis are the most ill-informed of all voters who read newspapers, news magazines or tune into radio-TV news outlets.
The study entitled, "Misinformation and the 2010 Election," found that the majority of American voters didn’t have their facts straight when it came to very topical events and issues.
Most voters did recognize that prior to the November elections, they were being bombarded with misinformation.
The challenge for most consumers then, was determining which news sources were the most trustworthy and reliable.
Regular viewers of Fox News may be among the most loyal, but the study showed that they are the most ill-informed.
The study surveyed 616 voters; the margin of error in the study’s conclusions is 3.9%. Participants were asked straightforward questions about the following topics:
The state of the economy
The unemployment rate
The healthcare reform act passed by Congress
The size of the budget deficit
The package of Congressional legislation designed to stimulate the economy, also known as the stimulus bill
The amount of federal income taxes you pay
The government bailout of banks and financial institutions, also known as TARP
The war in Afghanistan
The proposed cap and trade bill designed to address climate change
The bailout program for Chrysler and General Motors
The possibility that large amounts of foreign money were being used by the US Chamber of Commerce to influence the election
Fox viewers were the most likely participants in the survey to respond with inaccurate facts and misinformation, e.g.:

I totally agree. Fox (or Faux News) is still beating the drum about the Benghazi killings being mishandled by the Obama administration and the American people lied to by Obama. Give it up!

Honestly? If Nixon had been a Democrat and Fox News broke the Watergate story, Nixon would not have had to resign.

They used bogus polls from Fox leading up to the election indicating Romney was going to win the election by a landslide.
It's amazing because Fox and their supporters claim they are so smart but end up looking like big dopes.
If you watch Fox News you hate Obama and were certain Romney was going to win big. I keep telling them to turn that garbage off.

I never watch T.V. at all, that's how I know you so full of it you float in fresh water.

Are you SURE that YOUR "sources" are telling you the truth?

I know from actual experience that unless you SEE a "news" story happen you will not get the true story.

It makes sense that Mitt Romney and his advisers are still gobsmacked by the fact that they’re not commandeering the West Wing.

Team Romney has every reason to be shellshocked. Its candidate, after all, resoundingly won the election of the country he was wooing.

Mitt Romney is the president of white male America.

...

In its delusional death spiral, the white male patriarchy was so hard core, so redolent of country clubs and Cadillacs, it made little effort not to alienate women. The election had the largest gender gap in the history of the Gallup poll, with Obama winning the vote of single women by 36 percentage points.

As W.’s former aide Karen Hughes put it in Politico on Friday,“If another Republican man says anything about rape other than it is a horrific, violent crime, I want to personally cut out his tongue.”

.... the truth is, Romney was an unpalatable candidate. And shocking as it may seem, his strategists weren’t blowing smoke when they said they were going to win; they were just clueless.

Until now, Republicans and Fox News have excelled at conjuring alternate realities. But this time, they made the mistake of believing their fake world actually existed. As Fox’s Megyn Kelly said to Karl Rove on election night, when he argued against calling Ohio for Obama:“Is this just math that you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better?”

Romney and Tea Party loonies dismissed half the country as chattel and moochers who did not belong in their “traditional” America. But the more they insulted the president with birther cracks, the more they tried to force chastity belts on women, and the more they made Hispanics, blacks and gays feel like the help, the more these groups burned to prove that, knitted together, they could give the dead-enders of white male domination the boot.

Global warming is happening and it's real. The melting of the ice caps is all the proof anybody needs. It occurs every few thousand years. It is caused by the sun.

If that is your position, then we can easily blame Reagan and Bush.
After all they armed Bin Laden to fight the Russians as a proxy for America.
It was all love between Bin Laden and America and then a disagreement happened which triggered 911.
If I wanted nothing but mere opinion from peanut cells wanting to call the little vege nuts in their heads rolling around trying to call them a brain, I'd ask.
So since I didn't-here's MY opinion, which I prefer to base on FACT and reality-

Get a clue-there's NO SUCH thing as "all love" with people like bin_laden, Saddam Hussien and ANYone like them-except their extreme jihadist, rogue dictatorship psycotic selves and their hordes of twisted and evil flocks.

Clinton shouldn't have ever let him get away.

And they're STILL out there---for they are little "osamas"
