How stupid can a Liberal be to blame Obama's incompetence on the Republicans!!!
i can't but agree.

so the next time one of the GOP corporate facilitators tries to pay for his keep, Obama should give him a one finger salute.

Get it! Trayvon belonged, Zimmerman did not.
The court is now allowing evidence that THC was found in Trayvon's system.

Not making a judgment. Just marijuana most likely.

But what could have made this young man decide to take on Zimmerman in the dark when he could have kept on walking?

That's the question I wish could be answered. It never will, unfortunately.

SURPRISE! Fox News Audience Overwhelming Anti-Obama Republicans

Gallup just released the results of a new survey on where Americans get the their news. Not much about the findings are particularly earth-shattering, however, a couple of points reveal something notable about the Fox News audience.

Gallup reports that 55% of respondents cite television as their main source for news. As usual, the breakdown of that data reveals that a fair chunk of the viewers selected Fox News as their go-to network (8%), with the remainder of the legitimate news networks dividing the majority of the audience who are not blinded by the right. In fact, more than twice as many respondents chose sources other than Fox.

Somehow, these results have produced a flurry of stories proclaiming that Fox is the most popular news network. The shallowness of that conclusion is typical of media analysts who can’t see past a simple list of possible responses.

The method Gallup used for their inquiry was to ask an open-ended question that leaves it up to the respondent to choose how much specificity to apply. The answer with by far the most mentions was simply the generic “Television,” which received 26%, and is more than three times the mentions of Fox. The only thing that this tells us about Fox is that their viewers are more cultishly attached to the network and will recite its name upon command.

The most revealing part of the Gallup survey was the question that broke down the responses by political views. In this category, Fox News registered some astronomically high numbers for bias. Fully 94% of respondents identified as Republican or leaning Republican said that Fox News is their main source for news. Conservatives chimed in at 79%. And a whopping 97% of those who do not approve of President Obama pledged their allegiance to Fox. None of the respondents on the left came within 30 points of that level of extreme partisanship.

Surely Fox is aware of the character profile of their audience. And just as surely, their editors react to such market research by tailoring their programming to viewer preferences. Consequently, it should surprise no one that a network where more than 90% of its audience are conservative Republicans who hate President Obama spins every story in favor of the right and virulently against Democrats or anything remotely liberal. At this point, anyone denying the reality of this is desperately in need of intensive therapy and high doses of medication.

<quoted text>Yes some one can be more wrong, you. Trayvon was not scholar, but all his troubles were out of school not in school, unlike Zimmerboy.
Trayvon was an average student... not on academic probation, but not charging his way towards the National Honor Society either. His in classroom behavior was by all accounts non-remarkable, but it was his out of classroom activities; truancy, graffiti and the like, that landed him multiple suspensions. Zimmerman, on the other hand was anything but an average student at Seminole State Community College According to the Miami Herald:
Zimmerman got D's in Introduction to Criminal Justice and Juvenile Delinquency, and a C in a course called Evil Minds -Violent Predators. He failed algebra and astronomy and was placed on academic probation in 2011.
At one point, his grade-point average dropped to a .5.
In late 2011, he was declined an associate's degree because he had failed a class and did not have the credits to graduate.
Dig deeper, Jerk. So far, you are not convincing anyone, especially that burhead in the mirror.

Trayvon was a trouble-maker in school and out. Now he's somebody else's problem.
Yeah

Funny. Obama has installed cons.

And when cons shake hands with Obama (like Christie or Powell), they get their panties twisted and bent out of shape.

Seems to me if you consider what you say...'intelligent', then nearly all the right wing crazies... aren't!

Now there's something I can agree with!

Anyone?

When does stonewalling and betrayal become treason?

What happened to getting to the bottom of this administration's betrayal of trust?

Are we too overwhelmed to care since the chaos under this president never seems to end?

What is going on???

I still want answers. I want to know if this president knew the IRS was going after his political enemies and did nothing about it. I want to know all of the still unanswered questions surrounding Benghazi and why the abandonment and deaths of an ambassador and three Americans has been swept under the rug. I want to know why Eric Holder is still sitting in the Attorney General's chair in the White House.

Where is the media and journalistic investigations?

Again, when does the stonewalling cross the line and become treason?

I really want someone to tell me.
Yeah
