No, I just don't watch much of pundits on TV tell me their opinions on politics, even if I agree with their opinions. Most non-conservatives I know feel the same way.'If' I watch anything on TV that has anything to do with politics it's usually the Sunday morning talk shows. Those shows usually have conservative and non-conservative politicians speaking their opinions.
Conservatives tend to consider themselves 'outsiders'(which they are) and outsiders tend to only listen to those who think like they do. They're more insular. Fox News, Hannity and Rush are on 'their side'. In reality all they do is boil down current events into the diluted version they can accept and get their minds around. It's very black and white in the way that there are good guys (people on their side) and bad guys (people who are not) and the bad guys (mainstream America) are a threat to their outdated ways.
I guess what I am trying to say is that any news source is going to be very successful when it can convince a small percentage of the populace that everyone else is out to get them. They have created the monster and now offer protection from that monster. Sure the left does it to some degree too but it's obviously more successful on the right because they DO have more people who tune in, but yet represent a smaller percentage of the population.
I find it humorous to listen to a group of people who's party's entire philosophy is based on convincing minorities (blacks, latinos, gays, etc.) that they're being victimized and isolated , now convincing themselves, despite examples of reality such as the cable news waxing FOX news is putting on their liberal competition, that it's conservatives who feel like the "outsiders".

The left is currently steeped with confidence and arrogance ... that is until they run out of someone else's money and need another handout ... then it's right back to playing the victim card and begging the taxpayer for more of their hard-earned personal property. The left can turn on a dime from being the new face of America, an Army of One, to a group of segmented and oppressed victims as quickly as Obama can tell a lie and blame it on someone else.

Some revolution! Obama's "fundamental transformation" is nothing more than making the acceptance of handouts standard and pretending you're the party of the cool kids club.

F(uck) Fox News! They aren't even real news, they're a step below Access Hollywood. Who wants to sit for hours watching some blowhard or some post menopausal ex porn queen, with way too much makeup on, tell them the right's version of today's events? They're like televangelists but instead of hocking God they hock spin. They are like the Walmart version of a TV news network, cheap, dirty and full of fat chicks with a lower back Tatoo.

You apparently learned all your education at the knee of whom? Your grasp of the english language is something to be admired. And you apparently have a whole lot of experience watching televangelists AND shopping at Walmart? If you don't like either experience, why do you continue to do it?

Nope, why don't you name a few......

Seeing as how conservatism is SO popular and widespread, it should be pretty easy to find a number of those countries. Then again, if you can't name any, I guess it just shows us that your group is a fringe element of society!

Yeah shame on all those old white people for not wanting their kids to be molested by gay scoutmasters in the Boy Scouts! What a bunch of backward bigoted rednecks.

Well, gotta get going now, tonight is the lecture on the evils of the automobile and jet travel at Fountain Street Church. Gotta leave early because it's a 90-minute bike ride to get there, and I have to stop at the planned parenthood clinic to pick up my taxpayer-funded birth control on the way before it closes.

Much like Maxine Waters and Rachel Maddow, it's necessary for the left to make stuff up in order to find something to back their beliefs with.
I'm still waiting for a response of any kind from the usually overly vocal leftists on either of those threads!

According to the right there is a war on Jesus, there is a war on the rich, there is a war on 'traditional values'(whatever that means), there is a war on the right to bear arms, there is a war against the pro-life, there is a war on traditional marriage, immigration needs to end and we need to close our borders.

Well the war on Jesus is based on the fact that organized religion is losing followers faster than a priest can dis-robe an alter boy. The rich are getting richer under Obama and the poor are getting poorer, just like the pure capitalist GW Bush before him but somehow you people tell yourselves Obama is a socialist. Traditional means yesterday, today is today and as the country changes so do our values--our values used to include killing natives and slavery, come along or get left behind, your choice. Gun sales are at an all time high, ammo is getting bought up so fast the ammo companies can't keep up. Abortions are bad but you don't want to feed or take care of the poor, unwanted kids who ARE born. Traditional marriage continues a failure rate of over 50% but yet it's an instiution we somehow hold sacred. The Latino's aren't needed to win national elections but the hispanic's vote was enough to take the election away from Romney.

So yes, you do claim to be the outsiders, because you are. You're on the backside of almost every issue. To the rest of the non-conservatives (and by non-conservatives I mean everyone I know who is not a Fox News watcher--Libertarians, Dems, moderate republicans, ect...) it's amlost laughable. It doesn't matter what your platform is, if you can't attract new blood you are doomed to wander the halls of the House of Representatives and let the big boys run the Senate and the White House. Outsiders feel the need to fit in and Fox News is the answer. Fox News is to the republicans like the Cure is to the weird High School goth kids. The problem is the Cure and Fox News both suck to everyone else.

Oh wow ... all that coming from a guy who names himself after a martyred Saint! Now that's some serious hypocrisy. It's also a whole lot of assumption without merit from someone who's reputation for accuracy here is as shoddy as MSNBC's ratings.

You've been posting on here long before I showed up Dingleberry.

And go ahead and call me a liar, it doesn't change the fact that I have no idea who Maxwell Whoever is and have never watched Maddow's show, ever.

MSNBC ratings do suck because non-conservatives tend to have lives and don't correlate TV time with intelligence levels because it's usually the opposite.
