Welcome back to the Jimmy Carter years.
Return to a war footing with Iran, and no energy plan.

This is what we got for harboring the Shah and Carter's failed hostage rescue attempt. Even so , we were all working and energy was a lot cheaper . Israel will take the first step in bombing Iran's nuclear capabilities. Of course the USA will take the blame for our support of Israel.

And energy costs will double no matter what we do.

And why is GOP_Fox news pimping Bow-Tie Carlson's POS hit piece?
Very Simple:

David Brock and his colleague Ari Rabin-Havt have written a book that comes out on Tuesday!

THE FOX EFFECT: HOW ROGER AILES TURNED A NETWORK INTO A PROPAGANDA MACHINE

Per-order: http://www.amazon.com/Fox-Effect-Network-Prop...

The book is “Based on the meticulous research of the news watchdog organization Media Matters for America, David Brock and Ari Rabin-Havt show how Fox News, under its president Roger Ailes, changed from a right-leaning news network into a partisan advocate for the Republican Party.”

It is further described as “Featuring transcripts of leaked audio and memos from Fox News reporters and executives, The Fox Effect is a damning indictment of how the network’s news coverage and commentators have biased reporting, drummed up marginal stories, and even consciously manipulated established facts in their efforts to attack the Obama administration.”

In other words, the book is an investigation of the overtly partisan Fox News network and its efforts on behalf of a political agenda. So far as is discernible from their own marketing copy, it is not personal. It doesn’t slander Fox principals as insane or criminals. It sticks to factual representations of a news enterprise that abandoned its ethical obligations in favor of promoting an extreme right-wing ideology.

So a week before the release of a book from MMfA purporting to unveil the biases of Fox News via leaked memos and investigative reporting from within the organization, there is a pseudo-investigation published, and relentlessly hyped, that smears MMfA using allegedly similar tactics, albeit not particularly effectively? Is it just a coincidence, or is Fox News engaging in a preventative first strike in order to shelter themselves from the coming storm?

You're absolutely correct. And Soros is not even a "real" American. He was born in Hungary and immigrated to the US. He was also a Nazi sympathiser back in the 1940's. Made all kinds of money screwing with countries currency and now supports the nutcases over at Media Matters. What a bunch of fuking losers they are.
Exactly

Media Matters continues to remained true to their mission of monitoring Reich-wing bias in the news, regardless of the venue on which it appears. Bow-Tie Carlson's POS propaganda hit piece has produced not damn thing to show otherwise.

Media Matters is remaining true to their mission of laying on the bullcrap so thick that most people can't see what Obama and cohorts are doing to the USA.

Carlson though is just as much a waste of human flesh as PlacitasRoy is. Neither one is worth the toilet paper needed to wipe them off the bottom of your shoe.
