Rass, FOX, etc...

They care LESS about being accurate, and MORE about being the #1 daily choice for repubs seeking info and news.

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more profitable to bullshit people in the leadup to the 2012 race - than to be honest and lose their following.

Repubs are still tuning in to FOX today for news, and still looking at RASS in their favorites come the 2014 senate races.

They don't care about accuracy, they care about feeling good.


Look at is this way, would you rather bang the girl who says "You're the 8th best lover I've ever had!" in bed?
Or would you prefer to hear "Oh baby, it's the biggest I've ever seen, you're the most amazing lover ever..."

Very astute analysis!

Its interesting that this belief is widespread among Republicans.  I`d much rather be right than happy but that is because I am a realist.

Fox News' credibility isn't gone whatsoever.

The conservatives pundits called it for Romney; the liberal ones called it for Obama.

Fox News has more liberals than MSNBC and CNN have conservatives.

Let's see:

Bob Beckel works for Fox News; he called for Obama.

Alan Colmes works for Fox News; he called it for Obama.

Kirsten Powers, Juan Williams, Joe Trippi, Larry Sabato, Tamara Holder, etc.....ALL CALLED IT for Obama.

Pat Cadell, who ripped Romney for running the worst campaign he'd ever seen, works for Fox News.

Scott Rasmussen DIDN'T EVEN MAKE A PREDICTION; in fact, he said it was "too close to call" and talked of the possibility of Obama winning the EC and Romney winning the popular vote.

And as for your homosexual references, it appears you're projecting. Is there something you want to tell the group.

Just stop you are forever a spinster,fox is a disgrace to news.  Last night highlighted it. Your party is full of crazy people. People that believe in opinion over facts, fantasy over reality. The lies being spewed on here leading up to this election are more then enough evidence of this fact, for example, you guys keep on about handouts etc, meanwhile red states take the most. It's this inverse relationship between truth and republican politics that has the US in trouble.

Too bad you are entrenched in one belief so deeply that you cannot concede other possibilities, it seems to have permeated all your other views.  :-\

thank you good sir.

Given your highly accurate prediciton of this election, getbiggers are now aware of your good judgment and awareness.

Some people would rather be blind and happy.  Others like the truth, no matter how sad it is.  Even today, FOX is complaining about voting irregularities and looking for a dozen reason that people just didn't bother voting for Romney.

at this point, we now KNOW that Nate silver was way better at predicting the 2012 election than Rassmussen.

HOWEVER - we do not know rassmussen's goal - is their #1 goal to be the most accurate?  OR to be popular with republicans for the next 20 years?

NOT making an unpopular prediction is job security.  Just like the vice president will go along with a shitty plan from the CEO... knowing it will fail... he COULD object publicly and be in the doghouse forever... or he could just STFU and go with the flow and remain neutral and keep his bad news prediction to himself?

MY party's full of crazy people? My party didn't elect a guy who got our credit downgraded, had 8% unemployment for 44 straight months, and voted for a tax hike on nearly ALL Americans.

The problem is that, as usual, liberals have to learn things the hard way. The same policies that crippled Greece and Spain will cripple our country, because they're being implemented here. And, in the event Obama flops on his second term, as he did his first term, he'll find a way (with plenty of help from people like you) to absolve himself from responsibility.

A disgrace to news would be the so-called mainstream media that sat on a cover-up to help get Obama re-elected, that remained mute for his economic failures, while screaming at full blast for those of his predecessor.

The same Fox News I watched, when the GOP won the midterms is the same I watched when Bush got re-elected.

And, it's the same one I watched when Obama won last time. And when Scott Walker beat the recall.

I watched it then; I watch it now and will continue to do so in the future.

GOP isn't FULL of crazy people.

However, there are a few extreme people that cause the whole tea party to be labeled wrongly - because they feel they cannot criticize them without losing certain chunks of voters.

I mean- some of the things the candidates should WOULD have gotten them ousted from the party, 20 years ago.  not today.

The GOP had the credit downgraded, how can you state otherwise? Bush raised it like it was no sweat and when Obama had too they acted as if it was some foreign thing, demanding tax cuts for the rich and obfuscating the issue. Please, any thinking person knows Obama had nothing to do with the downgrade, much of the spending was for bush's wars.

Fox is proven to tell more lies then any other station, they have people who deny reality unlike other outlets. Global warming deniers, young earth creationists etc..

UE went down, sure it was maintained at a level for a while but he halted and now is reversing the damage. You see during the great depression UE was much much higher, Obama has done a good job. He saved key industries, passed a bipartisan healthcare reform, will now tax the rich like they should be, lowered the deficit each year in office, started wall street reform, ended retarded wars amongst other things. The fact that you think he has done nothing but terrible shows your bias. I can admit he has faltered in areas, he is human, however, he has done many good things as well. I would give him slightly above average curently.

Also, congress has been nothing but obstructionist, never in history have we seen the filibustering, blatant blocking of movement solely to regain power. Never, have we witnessed the debt ceiling debacle, the passing of so few bills and the admittance of obstruction from the red side.

You are out to lunch if you think fox is anything but the worst, Murdock is a con man, a liar, a treasonous spy and you think they report the facts?

First, it wasn't just the GOP. If you read the report, it states that the GOP's failure to raise taxes COUPLED with the Dems' failure to cut spending caused the downgrade. And where was Obama, the leader of this country? HE'S supposed to bridge the gap. He did ZILCH.

Second, don't lecture me about obstructionism, especially considering that 8 years ago, the Dems did the exact same thing after Bush got re-elected. They didn't "reach across the aisle". They didn't "look for common ground". They fought Bush tooth and nail and really crippled him, when they took over Congress.

In case you haven't noticed, the party out of power in the White House tends to do that. When we get a Republican president again, watch and see just how cooperative the Dems will be.

Bipartisan healthcare? ARE YOU ON CRACK? NOT ONE SINGLE REPUBLICAN voted for that mess. It passed on party lines in the Senate (when the Dems had a supermajority). The only thing bipartisan was opposition in the House.

When a president doesn't deliver on the most important issues of this country (i.e. the economy and jobs), I call him a FAILURE.

Did he keep unemployment under 8%? NO!

Did he get unemployment to 5.5% by now (as he and his economic team stated)? NO!

Did his healthcare debacle lower premiums? PLEASE!!! They're skyrocketing.

Did he reform immigration, despite the fact the GOP could do nothing to stop him? NO!!

And that's just the short list.

This country has major problems, made even worse by this president. And you're blubbering about a news organization? PLEASE!!

When his policies fail again, unemployment and taxes up, and energy prices shoot up, who are he and you going to blame then?

ok so you are delusional, that is clear. How about we just wait and see who is correct, I predict a steady recovery and perhaps even a booming US within the next two years. You apparently think a depression is on the horizon. Arguing does nothing to convince you, hopefully witnessing will.

All of what you predicted was supposed to happen the first term, especially the first two years, when the Dems completely ran the place.

Obama's stimulus was supposed to keep unemployment under 8%. It went over 8% and stayed there for over THREE AND A HALF YEARS....until (how convenient  ::) ) a month before the election.

If he couldn't get it done, with his party running Congress, he's supposed to do so, with the GOP running the House, because.........

They are businesses, for-profit.   If I got mad, I'd be hating on capialism.

I just saw on BET "Yo, this track is the dopest Jay-Z you'll ever hear".

No, Sorry, but Blurprint 2 was way doper, and that's a fact.   

However, I'll let BET's bias, motivated by desire for profit selling his new record, slide.  I won't complain.

Just like I can't complain if some obese host on "The View" believes this or that, or some bald dude on CNN believes this or that.

You voted for this joke of a president, DESPITE his utter failure by his own standards. Perhaps you should worry about your own IQ.

So how long does Obama need? By his own words, "If I don't have this turned around in three years, then it's going to be a one-term proposition."

It doesn't get fixed; unemployment is WAY higher than he say it would be at this point. What's his excuse?

He doesn't reform immigration (as promised); he doesn't close Gitmo (as promised); he doesn't keep unemployment under 8% as promised.

And what's going to be the excuse, if he doesn't get it done THIS time around?

That has to be the DUMBEST statement you've ever made. I guess you're pulling the MSNBC routine and changing the channel every time a black, Latino or female Republican takes centerstage.

Never mind Nikki Haley (governor of South Carolina), up-and-coming star Mia Love (mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah).

Bobby Jindal (LA governor)
Marco Rubio
Susanna Martinez (1st female Latina governor)
Condy Rice
Alan West
Tim Scott

I thought stereotyping people was wrong. Oh, I forgot. We're talking liberals here. Stereotyping folks, along with using racist and sexist, is absolutely FOUL.....UNLESS the targets of ridicule are Republicans.

And the list goes on.

Minorities don't exist....yet they keep getting elected to Republican seats.

As for the GOP being irrelevant, don't bet on it. I recall thinking that same thing about Democrats 8 years ago, after Bush got re-elected. We all know how that went.

The GOP was also supposed to be irrelevant, after Obama won last time. We all know how that went.

"Susanna Martinez" cannot mention gun rights without using them as props.   

Sorry, anyone on that list but her.   She acted like a fool during that speech - mentioning calibers with a smirk, throwing red meat to the base...

No, that kind of pandering isn't needed.  You didn't see a Jeb or Christie working that hard to please an audience.

I dislike when politicians are like that - voice goes up, fake fixed smile, doing anything to please - I prefer a leader who doesn't give a fck if they're liked.

Everyone in the GOP basically thinks cutting taxes for the rich supplies jobs, that abortion is bad, science is bad, global warming doesn't exist, evolution is false, god is coming back and the list goes on and on. It's party of illiterate morons.

I predict we'll see a wave of supposedly "enlightened" neocons, who will pretend to be mainstream-acceptable because they support "gun control", abortion rights, "immigration reform" and gay marriage/civil unions.  It is a dangerous little spot that will be used for whatever it's worth.

MY party's full of crazy people? My party didn't elect a guy who got our credit downgraded, had 8% unemployment for 44 straight months, and voted for a tax hike on nearly ALL Americans.

The problem is that, as usual, liberals have to learn things the hard way. The same policies that crippled Greece and Spain will cripple our country, because they're being implemented here. And, in the event Obama flops on his second term, as he did his first term, he'll find a way (with plenty of help from people like you) to absolve himself from responsibility.

A disgrace to news would be the so-called mainstream media that sat on a cover-up to help get Obama re-elected, that remained mute for his economic failures, while screaming at full blast for those of his predecessor.

The same Fox News I watched, when the GOP won the midterms is the same I watched when Bush got re-elected.

And, it's the same one I watched when Obama won last time. And when Scott Walker beat the recall.

I watched it then; I watch it now and will continue to do so in the future.

That's like saying everyone in the Democrat party thinks raising taxes on the rich creates jobs, are more obsessed with killing children in the womb than educating them outside the womb, that sexist and racism are horrible (unless it's aimed at their opponents), etc.

They think oil is bad and "green" energy is good, despite all the "green" energy companies that have gone belly up. And, they'd rather see children starve, if their parents make a living in the fossil fuel industry, to save some screwy animals.

You want to talk illiteracy? Who runs the public schools? LIBERALS. Yet, kids these days can't even spell evolution, despite blowing up to $15,000 per child in public education.

Kirsten Powers, Juan Williams, Joe Trippi, Larry Sabato, Tamara Holder, etc.....ALL CALLED IT for Obama.

Pat Cadell, who ripped Romney for running the worst campaign he'd ever seen, works for Fox News.

Scott Rasmussen DIDN'T EVEN MAKE A PREDICTION; in fact, he said it was "too close to call" and talked of the possibility of Obama winning the EC and Romney winning the popular vote.

And as for your homosexual references, it appears you're projecting. Is there something you want to tell the group.

The tax hike known as ObamaCare. And the tax hike that will occur in about a month and a half, barring some intervention.

Furthermore, the credit downgrade happened on Obama's watch, not Bush's watch.

Then, there the little matter of unemployment, even during the worst of Bush's tenure (which just happens to coincide with the Dems' running Congress), unemployment was NEVER over 8%.

Ok. You're just shilling.

I'll give you obamacare. Since that is officially a tax.

The EXPIRATION of a temporary tax cut is not Obamas so move that bullshit elsewhere.

The credit downgrade did happen on Obamas term but if you are saying that the credit market crumble which happened under Bush wasn't part of the problem then you're just lying.

The unemployment problem was ALSO because of Bush and you again know that.

So please. Cut the shit.

They don't show more Republicans than Democrats are on welfare. 

They simply show that states that are considered "red" take in more welfare and pay less taxes. States that are "blue" have the inverse of that relationship. Now does this indicate that there are more people on welfare who are in fact republican? no, its an epidemiological enterprise and hence correlational in nature. What it does say is that states with more republicans have more welfare. It also shows that states with republican leaders are welfare queens in comparison to their blue counterparts.

Republicans have become anti-intellectual and more corrupt than ever.

In other words it doesn't prove your allegation that more Republicans than Democrats are on welfare.  I also don't think the correlation is very useful.  For example, it's possible that more Republicans than Democrats are on welfare in "blue states."  Or that more Democrats than Republicans are on welfare in "red states."  I doubt anyone actually keeps those statistics anyway.

I could be wrong, but I think the blue states are more densely populated. A denser population often equals a more robust economy, and a greater revenue base for the state.

That tells us a few things:

1) That those more adept at revving up a local economy are either dems, ...or smart enough to vote for dems.

2) No one wants to live amongst fools who would vote for the current batch of Republicans.

Yes, you are wrong.  The most populous state in the country (California) is a "blue state" and it's broke, with an UE rate of 10 percent.  Texas, the second most populous state in the country, is a "red state," has an UE rate under 7 percent, and has a budget surplus.  New York, another "blue state," is the third most populous state in the country and has an UE rate that has been around 9 percent for a long time and has a budget deficit.

Actually, I was referring to population "density" not overall population numbers.
But you may be right. That was just a hunch on my part and I based the model on Canadian demographics. I gotta keep reminding myself logic & common sense gets turned on it's head south of the 49th.

Like I said, I was referring to population "density", not overall population.

ie: alot of people squished into a small space. ie:  a row of 50 story highrises in a quarter mile stretch of road, would be more densely populated that a quarter mile along a suburban street of single family homes, or a quarter mile stretch of farmland. More opprtunities to interact with others.

Again, was just a hunch. Not working off stats, just applying a Canadian demographic model to an American situation. Does not compute properly.
