    Low income for middLe cLass folks voting for a repubLican is Like a chicken voting for KFC

    :lol:

  • Raz

    Rightttttt, because the democrats have done such a bang up job in the last 3 and a half years. Though if any credit is due, the Tea Party should thank the democrats and prez for assistance in their rise to popularity and political influence.

  • AaAaAaChuu

    Look. Fox news is #1 simply because there are no other conservative Television news networks. You can try to say they are non-partisan all you pea brains want, but their ratings are NOT due to merit, talent, or any other act yoU can think of other than being the ONLY conservative television station out there.

  • MaryA

    AaAaAaChuu…Insulting FOX viewers is so counter-productive. You look foolish.

  • Hillbilly

    If FNC is the only conservative network, what does that say about the rest of them? THEIR LIBERAL!!!! Having never seen a fair & balanced network before leaves folks calling FNC conservative. :grin: Folks didn’t know what its like to hear the other side until FNC came along.

  • Jeff

    Teaparty popular??? Better check again,

    Democrats. Independants, and even mainstream Republicans hate the teaparty trash and their extremist agenda

  • Nick Czar

    Looks like Obama’s poll numbers are now approaching the
    ratings of MSNBC.

    Both being out of sync with the public and both spouting
    Marxist babble.

    Is this a great country or what ?

  • Tired of Idiotic Comments

    Jeff;
    Obeying the law, and supporting the U.S. Constitution is an extremest agenda?

  • Tingler33

    The Barakslypse will be over soon, then we can rebuild this once great nation.
