People like Don Joe voted for Obama because it made them feel good to vote for a "black man". It didn't matter that he wasn't qualified or what the country needed, just make them feel good. WOW, what a joke.

You are continuing your ability to be wrong every time. I refused to vote for Obama because of his support for the GOP. Why would I vote for someone that sick to actually give the GOP almost everything they want. It is destroying our nation; but the only thing you can find wrong is he is black.

Fox is a reliable news source. What have you heard that was not true? They fill in the gaps that the biased media leaves out.
The media is why we screwed up and re-elected the wrong man.
Fox??? reliable???? LOL, this has got to be satire because no one is that stupid. Fox lies at every turn. When have they ever reported anything correctly.

But not only are they mostly wrong, they present fantasy land imagination having nothing at all to do with reality.

Ahhh, spoken like a true ignorant liberal. Anytime things aren't going a liberal's way (like Fox being the #1 cable news network for like 100 years in a row now) they just resort to name calling and making up silly slogans like "Fox lies", hoping it will catch on. Sorry losers, Fox is #1 for a reason. Because people can't stand to watch the lefties on every other network slanting their news to make the slimy, evil Democrap party look good.

This is the kind of drivel that makes me question your education. I have already told you I don't support Obama. Pelosi has no credibility since she was the speaker of the house and took oversight of bush off the table; virtually telling bush, it didn't matter what laws he broke, there would never be any investigation. Pelosi was just another bush supporter, enabling his criminality. She should be in jail with bush jr.

While you try to make the claim that the GOP is not destroying the nation, how do you rationalize the Pat Act? and Trickle down? And the needless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? And the elimination of the middle class, and the transferring all the wealth to the very rich? How do you rationalize the attacks on women, workers, all minorities, all non-rich? No, it is very clear the GOP is doing everything they can to destroy the nation, even going as far as intentionally downgrading the credit of the United States. They obstruct everything Obama is doing, which is telling because Obama is another right winger, giving the GOP almost everything they want. If Romney had tried to push Romney care, the GOP would have been all in favor, but with Obama, they hated it. Had they presented any option at all, there might have been a case, but they refuse.

As to the swift boaters attack on Kerry, I know of over 100 drunks who claim they were drinking in bars in Texas with bush jr when he was supposed to be on duty, but that never made the GOP media.

The GOP has turned the USA into a fascist nation, with cooperation from the democrats. Corporations hire lobbyists to write the laws, and they "donate" enough money to make sure the people they want are elected and willing to vote for the lobbyists created laws. Rupert Murdoch owns and controls most of our media and most of the information the public receives. Our ballots are counted by private companies with no oversight, no publicly observed software, and we have massive amounts of evidence they are being used to overturn our elections. If they don't work for whatever reason and ballots are actually counted, the GOP can count on the USSC to throw out the election and appoint the republican, just like they did in 2000.

Yup, a good example of Fox reporting.(Hint, cable television has not been available for 100 years in a row.)

So, it could not have been #1. Secondly Fox is not a news network so how could it be a #1 news network? It's kinda like saying The Simpsons" had more viewers than the channel 5 news, so Fox was #1 in news.

I can appreciate your experience and I believe you are correct from your point of view. I would also emphasis that not trusting politicians at all is wise. I don't trust them either. When I want to know what the republicans are doing, I listen to what they say and I watch what they do. When I want to know what the democrats are doing, I listen to what they say, and I watch what they do. I do not listen to what the republicans say the democrats want, nor do I listen to what the democrats say the republicans want. Each stands on their own merits (or lack of merits).

From my point of view, neither has much in the way of merits. Look at all the damage the republicans have been advocating. It boggles the mind. On the other hand, the democrats have done practically nothing to stop them, even extending the horrible policies.

So I could never vote for any republican. Neither would I vote for a democrat. They are dividing us, stealing everything and getting away with it. We need to unite on common causes to fight back, but we can't when you are on one side and I am on the other.
