Conservatives wouldn't be called racists anymore and liberals would be screaming into their pillows all over the country.

You're just jealous Chris Matthews wasn't on the list of the most trusted news commentators.

Neither was anyone else at MSNBC - or CNN for that matter.

<quoted text>I disagree. I am not a liberal. I love America and the freedoms it affords and we will never give it away. Civil war will ensue if the danger of losing it becomes more apparent and imminent. Need I say more?
Just as I thought.

You're no American. You're a whiner and crybaby and a traitor.

Secession is treason. Per the US Constitution. Obama should let one state secede, then blockade it and watch the refugees come streaming across the border.

Once only the traitors are left, the USA will invade and destroy the last of the traitors.

Need I say more??

Apparently we didn't punish the traitors of the last Civil War enough if nitwits like you continue to bring it up.

Or doesn't it matter when it's a 'real American' like Carol??
She will owe the taxpayers about $10,000 when she graduates.

And she will pay back every last red cent too. Even if Obama insists on you paying for it.

So there.

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) condemned House GOP leaders for removing him and three other Republican representatives from their committee posts for bucking the party line.

"It confirms, in my mind, the deepest suspicions of most Americans about Washington, DC: It's petty, its vindictive, and if you have any conservative principles you will be punished for articulating those," Huelskamp said at a briefing at the Heritage Foundation. He added that his demotion was "not about principles, it's about blind obedience and that does a disservice to the institution."

That's funny. I've had to tell at least a half dozen liberals on here to lighten' up during the past four years.
Actually, I think you were one of them.
It's the sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek that a lot of liberals just don't get...the ones who take everything so literally.
Like walking on eggshells.

the definition of racism has changed. it is now invoked whenever anyone questions the judgement or performance of a minority, whether they are a high school student or Ambassador to the UN or President of the USA.

If they're so truthful and trusted, how could they have been so wrong about the election??
I mean, they had every salient fact wrong. Mitt never led. Mitt never had momentum, it was all FAUX propaganda, Joe Goebbels would have been proud.
The correct polls were all DEmocrat polls. Every Republican poll was wrong, esp. Rasmussen and Gallup.
And re still repeating the same lame excuses they used.
You've avoided that question since the election, but I watched FAUX on election night, and the stunned looks and comments from ALL FAUXer's proved they really believed their own propaganda!!
Let's have an answer, and not more of your 'twister' nonsense.
Why would anyone (who isn't crazy) believe a network that was so completely, totally wrong concerning the election is 'fair and balanced'??
Well,'cause they SAY they're "fair and balanced". Its like when Carol says she's telling the truth ... its a funny little game they play.

the US doesn't need to go to all that trouble. just continue to NOT enforce existing immigration law, watch their taxes rise to pay for all the unskilled and unfunded newcomers and the legal residents are already fleeing the borders.

When a "conservative" has their hand out for a handout it isn't called a "handout".

They have some other name for it, escapes me at the moment ...

Life In The Bubble: No Ricks Coverage On Fox News' Media Criticism Show

It was the big media story of the last week. National security journalist Tom Ricks went on Fox News and accused the network of "operating as a wing of the Republican Party" with regard to its overblown Benghazi coverage, impelling anchor Jon Scott to cut short the segment. The aborted interview and ensuing behind-the-scenes wrangling provided fodder for media critics at other outlets to analyze Fox News' role within the media. But how did Fox News' media criticism show Fox News Watch, hosted by the very same Jon Scott, handle this big media story? By ignoring it completely.
