Yeah. But the popular vote was close. But still decisive for Obama. I have no problem with it, he won fair and square. This is a great country where votes matter.(Even when they cancel eachother out ;)
Congrats President Obama.
I said it before, and I'll say it again...

I am curious about something.
In 2004 Bush declared his victory over Kerry was a mandate.
Popular vote of 62,040,610 (50.74%) w/286 electoral votes to a popular vote of 59,028,444 (48.27%) w/251 electoral votes

The MSM agreed and ran with the notion.

With Obama v Romney the tallies were:
Popular vote 61,212,366 (50.5%) w/332 electoral votes to a popular vote of 58,197,914 (48.0%) 206 electoral votes.

Those are almost identical results? Where is the cry of mandate? Not that I think either election was by any means though.

And they are ALWAYS Fair. And Balanced.
Only because they reflect your views in their opinion. They're no more balanced than the MSM. Just tilted the other way. Some of them seem a bit off balance lately.

Although I do agree with Rove on one point, sort of. Calling the election before it is finished. I think they should keep their yaps shut about it until the last vote is cast. But they, all of them, see it as a race to be the first to call the election results correctly.

I don't remember the MSM ever saying anything positive about Bush. I honestly don't remember them saying Bush had a mandate.

Yeah, the coal companies have been killing miners for over a hundred years. And they claim OSHA regulations are uncalled for and oppressive to the industry. Their idea of safety is "put a canary in the coal mine". The miners are just collateral damage to them.

I do recall references to the victory being a mandate. I'm no fan of Fox News either. I recall questioning the premise as well.

I am a fan of FOX News. The conservative slant is refreshing when compared to the liberal bias of most of the other news outlets.

Most journalists are liberals. It comes with the territory. I think there needs to be much more emphasis on ethics in journalism training.

You have to admit the media helps liberals and hinders conservatives if you are honest. It's been the subject of many studies and they conclude this is so.

Bush response to Katrina BAD!
Obama response to Sandy GOOD!

When they were equally bad.

Did anyone else notice Obama's willingness to be out front on Sandy compared to his lack of willingness to be out front on Benghazi?

Did anyone else notice the same from the media except for FOX News?

pfffffffffffffft...... It's not a journalist's fault that facts tend to have a liberal bias. Liberal's like facts. Neocons run from them, make up their own, and report them ad nauseum. The perfect recent example is ol' loser Romney.

Aw shuddup, you malcontent windbag!

Funny you jackasses know all about FOX News but you never ever watch it.

Don't let FOX bother you so much Fruitloops, there are plenty of liberally biased news outlets to keep you all warm and fuzzy!

Remember it was the great liberal...Chris Matthews that said he was glad for the storm. So while you suffer there in that winter snow without power just remember what the great liberals say.

Do you watch Fox News, or did you hear this on CBS?
Smile.
well said, it's funny how the liberal will bash and bash Fox, Rush, and whoever (Bush). So do they tune in just to start their day? No wonder they are so hateful. For me, I heard Matthews a few times too many, if I see him, I use the remote. My question is: When can we stop comparing Obama and Bush and blaming Bush? When does obama take full accountability?

A survey just out says that 49% of voters believe the bad economy is Bush's Fault! With dopes like that voting it's no wonder who we get for leaders.

Liberals blame Republicans for systemic problems caused by liberalism, and they credit Obama for victories brought about by applied conservatism.

<quoted text>The APA position statement is that they know that homsoexuality is a mental disease and defect that causes gay suicide, but they will not treat it so as to try to stem the tide of discrimination. I don't know what discrimination they refer to. However, I read a secret file, that the APA will not stop until pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia and frotterism are no longer considered a mental disorder. They fear that the similarities and the studies which led to the 302 classification will haunt gays and force it back into its classification. If it walks like a duck, it is gay and pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia and frotterism are also variations of homosexuality.
Frotterism. I had to look that one up. Yikes!

I have power, dopey. Only lost it for a couples of hours a week ago.

And Chris Matthews did apologize, but I realise that doesn't matter to you.
