    FOX numbers are really down but the funny part is that the terrible numbers for MSNBC are not that far off their regular numbers!! :lol:

    Now I gotta go for sure!!

    Please, for God’s sake…add a translation scroll at the bottom
    of the screen when Al Sharpton is on the air.

    Some one, Please require Mika to wear sunglasses to obscure
    her eyeball rolling.

    MSNBC managment, please require Ed Schultz to use any
    hair dye other than “brass” color.

    Or, better yet;

    Why not just pull the flush cord on the whole abomination
    and try programming that attracts viewers rather than
    repulses viewers ?


    No wonder why FOX is beating the Beejeezus out of MSNBC !

    Fox Ignores Private-Sector Job Gains To Push Claim Obama Values Public Sector More

    In the context of ongoing efforts by conservatives to paint President Obama as hostile toward the private sector, Fox “straight news” host Martha MacCallum remarked that Obama’s recent comments about private-sector jobs growth “feed into [the] narrative” that Obama values public-sector jobs over private-sector jobs. In fact, since Obama took office, the private sector has added millions of jobs, while the public sector has suffered severe and unusual job losses.

    Cenk Uygur: ‘At MSNBC, You Felt the Machine in the Room Every Day’

    There is a clear independence at Current. There is no interfering with what we do on the show. There’s no subtle hints. At MSNBC, you felt the machine in the room everyday. As you know, I did my damnedest to avoid the machine. At Current, there is no beaten path, there is no machine, you just blaze your own trail.

    Think Government Job Losses Don’t Hurt Us? Think Again

    Conservative media figures have mocked President Obama’s concerns about continuing job losses in the public sector but experts say the job cuts are more severe than in other recoveries in recent decades and threaten the recovering economy.
    Liz Cheney Refers To Public-Sector Job Losses As “The Good That Is Being Done At The State Level.” Later on Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace asked Fox News contributor Liz Cheney if reducing public-sector job loss is “an answer for the economy.” Cheney responded that President Obama’s call for public-sector hiring is “trying to undo the good that is being done at the state level”:
    But Public-Sector Job Losses Have Been Severe And Unusual

    Public Sector Has Lost Over 550,000 Jobs Since Mid-2009. Business Insider posted achart compiled from Federal Reserve Economic Data (FRED) showing that while private-sector jobs (blue) have been increasing since the beginning of 2010, public-sector jobs (red) — most of which are at the local level but this also includes federal and state jobs — continue to fall. The spike in the red line reflects the temporary hiring of Census workers in 2010.
    EPI: Loss Of Government Jobs In Current Recovery Contrasts Sharply With Other Recent Recoveries. The Economic Policy Institute stated that if public-sector employment had increased the way it did in previous recoveries, “there would be 1.2 million more public-sector jobs in the U.S. economy today” and “these extra public-sector jobs would have helped preserve about 500,000 private-sector jobs”:

    Romney Campaign Chair: ‘Taxpayers Really Do Want To Hear There Will Be Fewer Teachers’

    Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign isn’t backing off the candidate’s claim that America needs fewer teachers, firefighters, and police officers. Instead, former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu (R), a top Romney campaign surrogate, backed Romney’s call this morning, telling MSNBC that changes in technology and population shifts have made layoffs of teachers and public safety officials necessary.

    Poll: Public Doesn’t Agree With Conservatives’ Extreme Views On Regulation

    When conservatives aren’t talking about cutting taxes for the rich, they’re getting misty-eyed about removing business regulations. Indeed, nothing less than the obliteration of all current restrictions on business would appear to satisfy them. There’s just one problem: The public doesn’t share this commitment.
    On the contrary, the public understands that a free market economy needs regulation to serve the common good. And as a matter of fact, that was its verdict by a wide 63-31 margin in the Pew Research Center’s new American Values Survey released in April.

    Romney Says America Doesn’t Need ‘More Firemen, More Policemen, More Teachers’

    The last three years are the worst on record for public sector job loss, and the 700,000 government jobs that no longer exist remain a large drag on the American economy.
    Today, New Jersey Gov. and Mitt Romney campaign surrogate Chris Christie (R) said that those losses meant the country was moving in “the right direction,” and Romney himself backed that statement up later, criticizing President Obama for calling for the hiring of more teachers, firefighters, and police officers, the Washington Post’s Greg Sargent reports. From CNN’s report of the Romney event:
    Romney said of Obama, “he wants another stimulus, he wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government and help the American people.”

    Legalized Bribery: Group Linked To House Republican Leadership Offers Campaign Ads For Key Votes

    The YG Network, a secret-money outside political group run by former aides to House Republican Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), launched a new radio ad campaign today designed to reward Republican Members of Congress who back Cantor and the party’s leadership on key votes. Politico explains:
    The YG Network is seeking to “leverage the floor schedule and votes scheduled by Cantor to help members at home,” an aide said. If a member — specifically, an ally of Cantor and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) — votes for a leadership priority, they can look forward to an ad in their district.
    The YG Network hopes the effort becomes “another tool in the belt to call attention to members and help encourage cohesion on difficult-to-whip votes,” the aide said. Leadership is not permitted to offer anything in exchange for a vote.

    Growing Number Of Republicans Fear Ultra-Partisan Extremism In Current GOP

    Jeb Bush is a member of one of the most prominent families in the 158-year-history of the Republican Party. His grandfather was Sen. Prescott Bush (R-CT), his father and brother both served as President of the United States, and he himself was twice elected governor of Florida.
    And today, he became the latest in a lengthy parade of former GOP officeholders to express significant discomfort with the current purge by far-right wing Republicans of any moderates or even bipartisan-minded conservatives in their party. Bush told reports and editors that:
    Ronald Reagan would have, based on his record of finding accommodation, finding some degree of common ground, as would my dad [former President George H.W. Bush] — they would have a hard time if you define the Republican party — and I don’t — as having an orthodoxy that doesn’t allow for disagreement, doesn’t allow for finding some common ground.
    Bush noted he expects the current GOP dominance by those hyper-partisan Republicans who are pushing out voices for bipartisanship to be “temporary.”

    On Friday, Mitt Romney said the message of the recall election in Wisconsin was that Americans didn’t want “more firemen, more policemen, more teachers.” Appearing on CBS’ Face The Nation today, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker said he disagreed with Romney, saying teachers and firefighters aren’t “what I think of when I think of big government.”

    Mitt Romney Campaign Keeps Many Secrets, Unless Required By Law


    Great read!!!

    Let’s hope they lift the curtain on Romneys secrets regarding his donors.

  • REM

    Jeff get over yourself and Obama , Romney is going to win in a landslide.

    Obama is toast. Undecided votes always go to the challenger and that means

    Romney wins. Sorry to break it to you. But you keep typing.

    Even though you have nothing but disdain for Beck, why don’t click on over to Mercury One & donate some of your hard earned money to the food drive for the poor? If you wish you can even pick out the cans to donate from their virtual store. Administrative costs are being donated by company management, so , you would only be supporting those that need it.

    Their last drive was for tornado victims & there was over $500k donated in less than 48 hours to to help tornado relief efforts with 100% of this money spent towards tornado relief with no money being used on administrative costs or overhead.

    It’s for a good cause !
