I'm gonna go get high and then walk down Wisconsin Avenue and find a beautiful woman to have lunch and share a joint and a glass of wine with. I hope someday you figure out how to be happy, but it looks like long odds. I'm old and grizzled and shrinking but you know what? I'm gonna have a nice lunch at a cafe' with a pretty woman on a nice day so go fuck yourself you bitter idiot.

UCLA Newsroom 2005? Oh please. Your problem is that you want sensationalist witch hunting of the President on all channels as you see on Fox. Not going to happen. Most people are rational.
I just returned from Canada; what a breath of fresh air their news is.


It was a UCLA-based study of which the results appeared in the Quarterly Journal of Economics.

"The researchers took numerous steps to safeguard against bias — or the appearance of same — in the work, which took close to three years to complete. They went to great lengths to ensure that as many research assistants supported Democratic candidate Al Gore in the 2000 election as supported President George Bush. They also sought no outside funding, a rarity in scholarly research."

According to the study, five news outlets — "NewsHour With Jim Lehrer," ABC's "Good Morning America," CNN's "NewsNight With Aaron Brown," Fox News' "Special Report With Brit Hume" and the Drudge Report — were in a statistical dead heat in the race for the most centrist news outlet. Of the print media, USA Today was the most centrist.

The study also reported, "Overall, the major media outlets are quite moderate compared to members of Congress, but even so, there is a quantifiable and significant bias in that nearly all of them lean to the left."

You got rules for everything, carol, you fat stoopid whore, except they don't apply to you. You just called the President a maniac interested only in killing his own people but somehow these fine distinctions evade you. You're the biggest bully of all because when some kid finally gets fed up with your middle-aged womanly nattering you crawl into the corner and start whining about how "He or she's going to hit you and how unfair it is. If you don't want to start a fight keep your fat, slack whore mouth shut. Duh. Words have consequences. If you don't want to get beaten to a pulp, learn to shut up. I thought you were married?
easy son. if she called someone something it's only because she heard some talking head on FOX say it first.

she's been brainwashed into believing that only FOX tells the truth, so if you want her to shut up just just fact check BillO's latest rant.

HUH? Fox In Talks To Produce NBC’s Hillary Clinton Project

The New York Times is reporting that NBC is in talks with Fox Television Studios to produce their miniseries. Fox has confirmed the report. NBC’s decision to go with Fox would be influenced in part by Fox’s extensive experience with long-form television.

The problem for Priebus and the GOP is that now they would have to exclude Fox News from holding any of their primary debates. After all, if they are going to take it upon themselves to be Hillary Clinton’s campaign operatives, then the GOP would be forced to show them the same treatment they show NBC and CNN. And Priebus couldn’t argue that Fox’s entertainment division is separate from their news division because he already rejected that argument.

So now the Republican Party may not be able to have debates on any of the cable news networks. This leaves them with only ABC and CBS. Well, technically, there is also the highest rated national network, Univision, but that doesn’t seem like a good fit for the Hispanic-hating GOP. Perhaps they could work something out with Al-Jazeera America.

Your desperate attempt to blame Bush for Obama's incompetence is driving you insane!
Is driving all Liberals insane!!!
And Fast and Furious happened under Bush too, right?
And abysmal unemployment happened under Bush, right?
And the Boston Marathon bombing was done by Bush, righ?
And Anthony Winner is a Republucan, right?
And Obamacare was Bush,
And IRS political HARRASMENT was under Bush, too!
And the Middle East got on fire because of Bush, right?
But all good and great things happen only under your little racist dictator wannabe.
ACTUALLY MORON "Fast and Furious" was a continuation of "Operation Wide Receiver" that was under the Bush Administration.
The high unemployment is due to a recession that was caused by Republican anti regulation policies. It's still high because Republicans in the House refuse to spend a cent on legislation that would put people to work repairing our crumbling infrastructure.
You're putting the Boston Marathon bombing out there as a failure? There was no warning that it was going to happen. What about 9/11/01 you vomitous cretin/ There were warning that were ignored by Bush and over 3000 died.
John Ensign, David Vitter, Herman Cain and Rudi Giuliani are Democrats?
Obamacare was built from a blueprint drawn by the Heritage Society and actually signed into law in Massachusetts by Mitt Romney.
Yeah nitwit under Bush the IRS went after groups like Greenpeace, the NAACP and a liberal Episcopal church in California.
The Middle East would be in the same turmoil no matter who the president was.
Are you an idiot? You sure are.

"states rights"
It was bitter symbolism for black Americans (though surely not just for black Americans). Countless observers have noted that Reagan took the Republican Party from virtual irrelevance to the ascendancy it now enjoys. The essence of that transformation, we shouldn't forget, is the party's successful wooing of the race-exploiting Southern Democrats formerly known as Dixiecrats. And Reagan's Philadelphia appearance was an important bouquet in that courtship
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reagan%27s_Nesho...
No one "wooed" the Dixiecrats. By the time Nixon ran for president, the Great Migration of blacks had long since moved to the north and west between 1915 and 1960.

The Democrat "Dixiecrats" ran back to their own party with their tails between their legs with the exception of one when it was clear Goldwater's states rights lost the battle over empowering the federal government.

Reagan also believed the Constitution was designed to prevent a powerful and overreaching federal government by granting more power to the states.

Even if states rights determined the outcome, there weren't enough blacks left in the south for the Democrats to oppress anymore. And they would have been left high and dry when the rest of them fled to the other states who passed the Civil Rights Act.

There is no bill in Congress calling for an exemption from the health care law liar. In fact, members of Congress and their staffs face additional requirements that most Americans don’t have to meet.
Under the health care law, their insurance coverage will have to switch from the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, the group of private insurance plans that cover 8 million federal employees and retirees, to the exchanges created by the law. Those exchanges are meant for those who buy coverage on their own, the currently uninsured and small businesses. Members of Congress and their staffs would be the only employees of a large employer in the exchanges, which are set to begin offering insurance in January.

On a scale from 1 to 10, just how gullible are you?
Congress gave Bush the authority to use military force to take down Saddam with 111 Democrats' blessings.
And unless you're admitting Congressional Democrats were not given the same Intel the entire world had just to keep them out of the loop, then you're admitting they were the ones who lied. To you.
Yes nitwit and you keep forgetting that the authorization hinged on Bush exhausting all diplomatic efforts. There was also the fact that Congress only got intelligence that the Bush administration wanted to share with them. On a scale of one to ten your gullibility level is around 12.

How Raleigh’s Republicans Forgot the Working Class

At the beginning of North Carolina’s latest General Assembly, Republican lawmakers began pushing a legislative agenda that sparked months of “Moral Monday” demonstrations and heated attacks. The protests’ leader Reverend William Barber wrote to the Wall Street Journal to call GOP policies “cruel, morally indefensible and economically insane.” Republicans have countered with incessant appeals to “fiscal responsibility” and “small government.”

Elected with a super-majority, Republicans have decisively lost that advantage in public opinion after implementing their agenda. The latest Civitas Institute and Public Policy Polling (conservative and Democratic pollsters, respectively) surveys show North Carolinians losing confidence in newly-elected Governor Pat McCrory and his GOP. This fall from grace was inevitable given policy choices that hurt working-class families combined with an inability to defend their reforms without relying on stale conservative rhetoric. To get back on track, the North Carolina GOP, and the national party, should recalibrate policy and rhetoric to focus on the needs of working-class families through the reform conservative framework.

Given the state’s bipartisan tradition of striking a balance between economic growth and maintaining a social safety net, North Carolina is simply not well suited for libertarian governance. Education is a prime example: the right to a K-12 education is enshrined in the state constitution, and public education is broadly seen as a public good. After a century of almost uninterrupted Democratic governance, however, the state government became sclerotic with the worst tax burden in the Southeast, a growing divide between rural and urban counties, and deteriorating schools. Republicans were given an opportunity to govern conservatively and solidify their electoral gains for a generation. Instead, they squandered it.

Blacks don't want real jobs, a real education and don't want to be treated like all Americans but stereotypes and voting blocs instead? Is that why they didn't vote for Reagan?

Blacks would rather have high unemployment because of a lack of a real education in some of the worst schools without a choice and don't want to be treated like all Americans but stereotyped and voting blocs instead? Is that why they voted for Obama?
