and even with sort of the right wing nonsense pushed by every right wing nutjob media entity he stills wins the election.

figure that out.

FOX is the propaganda machine that MM is responding to. if it was only MM you might have a point, but there are numerous sites that fact check FOX lies. and why? because it's so easy.

Republicans Failed to Understand Their Opponent
I sympathize with people who supported Romney for good, principled reasons, because they were being lied to throughout the year. First, Romney lied to them that they could trust him, and then Romney’s boosters in conservative media lied to them by painting them a rosy portrait of the political landscape that they had to know was almost certainly wrong.
But the problem wasn’t just that conservative media gave Romney supporters bad information. The people in conservative media also seem to have been fully taken in by the idea that Romney would win and would do so in decisive fashion, and the campaign came to believe its own propaganda, too. As York notes, Romney didn’t have a prepared concession speech. It apparently never occurred to his campaign that he would lose. That’s not so remarkable by itself, but it is just one part of the overall pattern of the Romney campaign and the conservative movement’s reaction to Obama. Romney spent years running against a fantasy record and campaigning on a series of gross distortions and falsehoods, and so it shouldn’t be too surprising that his campaign and his conservative media boosters didn’t have the firmest grip on political reality.

Obama's get the vote out campaign was three years in the making.

It's one of the advantages of being an incumbent but, in this president's case, pure luck had a lot to do with it.

Beyond Fox News
Meet the post-movement conservatives.
Perhaps post-movement conservatism won’t accomplish much in practical political terms, but in nurturing a fertile intellectual tradition it may well do more good for the country than all the political campaigns of the last decade.

bullshit.

you just keep fooling yourself about the loser and the network that backed him because you can't admit that the lies told by both sunk the ship.

and your Bush apology tour just makes you seem even more hopelessly lost in the lies told by the right wing media.

no one is buying it beyond those who already have. stop wasting your time. you will not change any minds with your repetitive FOX parroting. it's so transparent as to what you're trying to do, and you act like you're all sly or something. you're not that smart.

deal with the inadequacies of the current right wing movement and get on with reality.

Good point, all their income comes from right wing drones who preach about a better way without having to put into practice. After all in practice is the memory of Bush & co with needless wars and a wpr;d wide economic collapse. Not exactly good copy day in day out, so all the money is made convincing the converted that Obama is heading the same way again without it actually happening. lol

massive lawsuits and idiotic liberal juries have resulted in many expensive tests to be run so the doctors can protect themselves.
Thanks, liberals.
Another lie that the right wing likes to trot out.

One of the principal myths surrounding medical malpractice is its effect on overall health care costs. Medical malpractice is actually a tiny percentage of health care costs, in part because medical malpractice claims are far less frequent than many people believe.
In 2004, the CBO calculated malpractice costs amounted to “less than 2 percent of overall health care spending. Thus, even a reduction of 25 percent to 30 percent in malpractice costs would lower health care costs by only about 0.4 percent to 0.5 percent, and the likely effect on health insurance premiums would be comparably small.” i
Five years later, the CBO revisited the issue of medical negligence costs. This time, they attempted to account for the indirect costs of medical negligence, mainly the idea that doctors order extra tests to avoid liability. Again, the CBO found that tort reform would only save 0.5 percent of all health care costs.
Other authorities have also found that the direct costs associated with medical negligence are a tiny fraction of health care costs. According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), the total amount of money spent defending claims and compensating victims of medical negligence in 2010 was $5.8 billion, or just 0.3 percent of the $2.6 trillion spent on health care in the U.S. that same year.

Hey Douchebag, would you rather be waterboarded or blown to smithereens by an illegal Obama drone?
You're just another imbecile who doesn't get that dealing with an active combatant is different than dealing with a prisoner. Water boarding is torture and prohibited by the Geneva Conventions whereas firing a missile from a drone is no more illegal than firing one from an F-16. If we can take out an enemy without putting our people in harm's way then what's the problem? There will be civilian casualties either way just like there were during the invasion of Iraq.
You're an idiot!

So did Saddam Hussein moron, but the neo cons didn't figure that into their equation when they decided to use US forces to get rid of them. That worked out really well. The difference is that it was the Egyptian people that decided Mubarak had to go, not a foreign power.

Doctors are overtreating and overdiagnosing for one of two reasons - to protect their own butts or just because they can and get more money.
According to the World Health Organization's ranking of the world's health systems last produced in 2000, the United States came it at 37 just behind Costa Rica!!
http://www.photius.com/rankings/healthranks.h...
We have obviously mistaken quality health care for expensive procedures and expensive medication - of which both are many times totally unnecessary.
We're digging ourselves in a hole of ever increasing costs of expensive and unnecessary health care without even realizing it. Obamacare will not solve the real crisis of unaffordable and unnecessary health care.
Well Carol you're heading down the right track but to say that Obamacare won't do anything to reduce costs isn't really accurate. The preventive care mandate gives people a chance to visit the doctor for checkups that can catch health problems before they get more serious and expensive to treat. Our healthcare system up to now has been really good at the treatment of illnesses but not so good as keeping people well which in the long run will save money.
Let's also take some personal responsibility and not engage in practices that put us at risk like hitting McDonalds everyday for lunch. I like a good bacon cheeseburger as much as the next guy but I don't eat them on a regular basis.

I think you need to go back to Elementary School and learn how to add.

These do not add up to the 92 billion you claim was wasted.

As for your list, I recognized Johnson Controls because I just read about the profits it made in the first quarter. You said they were bankrupt or faltering on bankruptcy.

Green initiatives that reduce our dependency on foreign oil means fewer dollars being exported from this country & spent in our economy.

Green initiatives that reduce emissions help with are pollution from coal generation plants that sicken & kill thousands of Americas every year.
