Once again, an academic study of the American electorate has found that “Fox News Republicans are the most uninformed.” This new survey was conducted by the The Brookings Institution along with the Public Religion Research Institute. http://publicreligion.org/site/wp-content/upl... What’s different about this study is that it does not merely pit Republicans against Democrats and Independents. It distinguishes between Republicans who regularly watch Fox News and those who don’t. And the conclusions reveal that Fox News Republicans are even more uninformed and extreme in their views than their non-fox viewing comrades in the same party.
By doubling down on crazy, Fox is driving the center of the Republican Party further down the rabid hole. They are reshaping the party into a more radicalized community of conspiracy nuts. So even as this helps Rupert Murdoch’s bottom line, it is making celebrities of political bottom-feeders. That can’t be good for the long-term prospects of the Republican Party.
The more the population at large associates Republican ideology with the agenda of Fox News, and the fringe operators residing there, the more the party will be perceived as out of touch, or even out of their minds.

Read and learn, you ignorant old woman!!
----------
On July 1, 2008, Zebari said he briefed members of the Iraqi Parliament that U.S. contractors would no longer have immunity from Iraqi prosecution under negotiated terms of the long-term security pact. U.S. State Department officials could not be immediately reached for comment, but Iraqi member of parliament Mahmoud Othman said he attended the meeting and that Iraqi representatives were very pleased with the immunity agreement.
On July 8, 2008, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani rejected the proposed agreement on the basis that it violates Iraqi sovereignty, following a meeting with Iraq National Security Advisor Mowaffak al-Rubaie. Rubaie, clarifying remarks by Maliki on July 7 that Iraq would accept a memorandum of understanding in lieu of a SOFA, stated "We will not accept any memorandum of understanding if it does not give a specific date for a complete withdrawal of foreign troops". Deputy speaker Khaled al-Attiyah also said on July 8 that the Iraqi parliament would insist on vetting any agreement with the United States and would likely veto the agreement if American troops were immune from Iraqi law: "Without doubt, if the two sides reach an agreement, this is between two countries, and according to the Iraqi constitution a national agreement must be agreed by parliament by a majority of two thirds".
----------
"To protest an agreement they saw as prolonging a "humiliating" occupation, tens of thousands of Iraqis burned an effigy of George W. Bush in a central Baghdad square where U.S. troops and Iraqi citizens five years previously tore down of a statue of Saddam Hussein. The Iraqi parliament was the scene of many protests before and during the vote."
----------
Pay attention, Lorac. Bush signed our withdrawal document. The Iraqi's made it clear that we had to leave.
To blame Obama for Bush's debacle is typical of morons like you, who continue to deny the war was a tragic mistake from day one.
Bush made the most disasterous decision of this century (so far).
It makes all his supporters, like you, look just as stupid as Bush himself.
You own this, with your support for a stupid war that we lost in so many ways.

Why, is the State Dept stuck in an embassy in IRAQ?
NEVER, has there been an admin, as grotesquely(!) "arrogant" for NO good reason, as the one of the past few years has been.
THAT has been the Biggest "transparency", for many Americans to have to watch in Disgust.
The "State Department" is not stuck in the embassy. American contractors and others are "stuck" because they didn't listen to warnings. The decision to evacuate was left up to individuals. The United States does not control what they do. These people get themselves in this mess and now expect U.S. forces to save them. THAT is what I call arrogance.

In March, the state department warned U.S. citizens against all but essential travel to Iraq.

On June 11th the State Department sent out a reminder "of the ongoing security concerns in Iraq, including kidnapping and terrorist violence. The ability of the Embassy to respond to situations in which U.S. citizens face difficulty, including arrests, is extremely limited. "

"U.S. citizens in Iraq remain at high risk for kidnapping and terrorist violence. Methods of attack have included roadside improvised explosive devices (IEDs), including explosively formed penetrators (EFPs); magnetic IEDs placed on vehicles; human and vehicle-borne IEDs; mines placed on or concealed near roads; mortars and rockets; and shootings using various direct fire weapons. These and other attacks frequently occur in public gathering places, such as cafes, markets and other public venues. Numerous insurgent groups, including the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), previously known as al-Qa’ida in Iraq, remain active and terrorist activity and violence persist in many areas of the country at levels unseen since 2007. Iraqi forces are conducting military operations in Ninewah and Anbar Provinces against insurgent and terrorist organizations that have occupied territory and cities within those provinces. Fighting has been especially intense in the Northern Iraq city of Mosul with ISIL reportedly taking control of sections of Mosul including government facilities. Baghdad International Airport has been struck by mortar rounds and rockets, and the Mosul International Airport has been the target of militant assault. Due to the potential of political protests and demonstrations to become violent, U.S. citizens in Iraq are strongly urged to avoid protests and large gatherings."

Now these people are "stuck". Tsk, Tsk.

The only one being proven wrong here are you and your wingnut friends.

It's been going on for nearly 6 years here, and you morons have been wrong about everything.

You're too big a coward to admit to the huge mistake Bush made in invading Iraq.

Now the chickens have come home to roost, Bush is looking more the idiot by the day, and you're carrying his water for him.

What is happening is exactly what was predicted.

You're being as stupid as you were about the Terri Schiavo case. Even when proven wrong, you're too stupid to own up to it.

Poppycock, balderdash, bullshit. Pew Research Poll just named the most reliable trustworthy news organizations in America. Your channel didn't fair too well:

5% MSNBC of entire vote (lol).

Whereas, FOX News was #1 in reliability and trustworthiness.

Furthermore often confused bloviating Chris Matthews has finally admitted the TEA PARTY is not dead and has a valid reason for being established in the first place. Brother Chris said that liberals SHOULD NOT LOOK THEIR COLLECTIVE NOSES DOWN at the TEA PARTY.
Chuck Todd of NBC News had to concede 'something' was happening when Erick Cantor was booted out by a unknown candidate named Dave Brat a economics professor who had a direct no nonsense message. Another fact that the MSM overlooks is Dave Brat is not a Tea Party candidate as widely reported the Tea Party did not give him 1 penny for his campaign. What happened was 2 conservative women Laura Ingraham and Ann Colter recognized Dave Brat as a breath of fresh air and common sense. They got the words out and volunteers begin coming out of the woodwork to help spread his message. Dave Brat's campaign is truly a grass roots campaign.

Losing Streak Lengthens For Foes Of Gay Marriage

""For foes of same-sex marriage, their losing streak keeps growing. Some sense a lost cause, others vow to fight on.

On Election Day in 2012, they went 0-for-4 on state ballot measures. A year ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the federal government must recognize same-sex marriages. And over the past seven months, more than a dozen federal and state judges have struck down part or all of state-level bans on gay marriage, with no rulings going the other way.

Faced with these developments, some longtime opponents of gay marriage now say that its nationwide legalization via a Supreme Court ruling is inevitable. Others refuse to concede, and some leaders of that cohort will be rallying Thursday at a March for Marriage in Washington that they hope will draw many thousands.

The event's main sponsor is the National Organization for Marriage, which engaged in several successful state campaigns against gay marriage prior to the 2012 votes in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington state that reversed the tide.

NOM is promoting the march with a website that evokes a "road to victory" and a video featuring dramatic background music.

"A competition is won by those who take the field, not by those who sit on the sidelines," NOM's president, Brian Brown, exhorts his supporters. "Friends, we need to take the field for marriage — and fight to win."

Brown, in a telephone interview, said his best-case scenario hinged on a future ruling by the Supreme Court upholding the right of states to set their own marriage laws, rather than imposing same-sex marriage nationwide. Such a ruling would strengthen the position of the 31 states that currently ban gay marriage and might encourage grass-roots efforts in some of the other states to reimpose bans, Brown said.""

----------

Repugnants don't seem to understand that they are passing UNCONSTITUTIONAL laws that are bound to be thrown out in court.

States don't get to decide what parts of the Constitution they must observe.

Constitutional Rights cannot be abridged by religious fanatics.

So sayeth the Supreme Court of the USA!!
