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.

Would you be just as excited as me if a Black Republican emerged in the next 4 years and became the new POTUS?
Conservatives wouldn't be called racists anymore and liberals would be screaming into their pillows all over the country.
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.

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.
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.

Of course Mitt was leading and had momentum in every single poll right before the hurricane and Obama got to take the spotlight back and look presidential while Romney had to take a backseat.
Fox reported Obama the winner even before all the votes were counted in Ohio and Florida.
Get a life. Tay?
You missed Karl Rove's nervous breakdown on live TV??

They lied to you and you believed it. That makes you a sucker!!

Romney never held a lead, it was all FAUX propaganda. The momentum story was bogus.

Because if either were true, Rmoney would have won the election.

See Nate Silver's polls, the only one that proved correct both before and after votes were counted.

Your claim that a photo op after Sandy destroyed all Rmoney's lead and momentum is so dumb, only you could come up wirth such a weak idea.

There was never a chance that Rmoney could win. Obama 'gave' him the first debate to keep it from becoming a complete rout well before the election.

If not for that, Rmoney would have lost by 8 Million votes, not the 4.5 Million he won by.

I think Chris Matthews would rather have backed the candidate that won.

If O'reilly is so trusted, why didn't his candidates win??

In fact, FAUX support of the Republiclown Party ended in a net gain for Democrats in the Senate, the House, and Obama re-elected.

So he's trusted, but people ignore what he says..........

Like that Benghazi stuff is just going to "go away".

New news question overheard of the day-Where'd Syria get all those weapons, now in al qeada hands.
