What a joke!
Democracy has been long since dead, with the Corporate Fascist Main-Stream Media able to blow up scandals against Bob McDonnell, and even Chris Christie, while at the same time burying the horrific scandals of the Obama Administration.
Another FAKE election where the International Banksters have a puppet in place.
As easy as it may be to attribute Faux Views style yellow journalism to the main stream media that it reviles in an attempt to discredit it, the problem is that it fails completely to ring true due to lack of credible evidence to support it. The fact is, for example, that Gov. Ultrasound is publicly on record for being Gov. Ultrasound and for illegally accepting lavish gifts, and Gov. Christie has repeatedly been recorded bullying people, while Faux Views has been unable to support its extensive list of Obamarama "scandals" with a shred of supportive evidence.

Turnabout is fair play only if equally applicable. The reason that right wing extremists' propaganda machine creates manufactured scandals and summarily dismisses all reputable media as "lame" and biased is to incite outrage among the "Faux Views faithful." The strategy of false equivalence is effective only with uncritical minds.

A couple of lines from the epic film, Porkys 2, come to mind: "So sayeth the shepherd, so sayeth the flock" and "Get the flock out of here!"



Would it be false equivalence to compare Rev. Bubba Flavel to our beloved Rush Limbaugh? I report, you decide.

"At the 1948 Democratic National Convention, Truman attempted to unify the party by placing a vague civil rights plank in the party platform; the aim was to assuage the internal conflicts between the northern and southern wings of his party. Events overtook the president's efforts at compromise, however. A sharp address given by Mayor Hubert Humphrey of Minneapolis—as well as the local political interests of a number of urban bosses—convinced the Convention to adopt a stronger civil rights plank, which Truman approved wholeheartedly, but all of Alabama's delegates, and a portion of Mississippi's, walked out of the convention in protest.[101] Unfazed, Truman delivered an aggressive acceptance speech attacking the 80th Congress, which Truman called the "Do Nothing Congress",[71] and promising to win the election and "make these Republicans like it."[102]
Within two weeks of the convention, Truman issued Executive Order 9981, racially integrating the U.S. Armed Services.[103][104][105] Truman took considerable political risk in backing civil rights, and many seasoned Democrats were concerned that the loss of Dixiecrat support might destroy the Democratic Party"
Harry S. Truman beat a primary challenger and Dewey at the same time-that how you run a campaign-what a man!

The DixieRATS and RATpublicans could believe it-even the Media had it wrong

Truman extended the winning streak of the DNC to a fifth term-and the roaring 50's had one of the strongest decades in the 20th century with an integrated military

The Truman Doctrine cant loose

Oh yeah, and remember which Democratic President signed the extension? Well, so your point is? It's okay if Obama does it, because Bush did it. Good argument.
