    Lie, Lie, Lie and obama says ? I approve this message….

    Factcheck.org, states:

    ‘We found no evidence to support the claim that Romney
    while at Bain capital shipped American jobs overseas…..

  • Italian mike



    Don’t look for a retraction from the left wing, bias, so-called objective media on Bain. They have there story and they don’t want to mess it up with the truth.

  • Suikostinger


    Upandover will believe Factcheck.org when they find out a lie was towards a Republican….but when it’s towards a Democrat (Michelle Obama mouth reading about the American flag) he doesn’t believe it at all. We report, you decide!!! (on which to be true.)

    Obama says his father served in World War II

    Barack Hussein Obama Sr. (Obama’s father)*Born 1936 was 5 years old when WW 2 started.
    Lolo Soetoro (Obama’s step father) *Born 1935 was 6 years old when WW 2 started.


  • Nick Czar

    THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA’S ratings are in the dumper because of their
    AL JEZEERA programming and talentless talking heads..Simple as that.

    Take for example Anderson Cooper who regularly giggles like a girl in mid sentence.
    Pearce Morgan with his history of phone tapping and liberal limey blather.
    Then there’s Chris Matthews with quivering leg syndrome, Ed Schultz who suffers
    from hair dye poisoning, Al Sharpton who speaks in pig Latin and Zulu and the snob
    Mika Brezinski who rolls her eyes in concert with that lone B B inside her skull.

    Then you have the radical left print media; the New York Times, Washington Post,
    Newsweek and the L A Times all heading for chapter 11 and extinction.

    The sooner…the better !

    As long as I have Fox and Talk Radio, I will at least know the truth, My sister doesn’t have cable news and never hears the truth. It shocks her when I tell her what’s really going on in America. So many are like her. That never hears the real truth.

    @Nick Czar
    Well Said.

    I am surprised that FOX News is falling the same path as CNN, OUCH For CNN Though.

    Good riddance i say.

    IMF Trims US Growth Forecast to 2% Amid ‘Tepid’ Recovery

    The U.S. economy will grow by 2 percent this year and about 2.25 percent in 2013 amid a “tepid” recovery and the European debt crisis, the International Monetary Fund said, lowering its previous projections.

    The U.S. remains “subject to elevated downside risks, in light of financial strains in the euro area and uncertainty over domestic fiscal plans,” the IMF said in a statement. In an April report, the IMF forecast U.S. growth of 2.1 percent this year and 2.4 percent in 2013.

    “Further easing” by the Federal Reserve might be needed “if the situation was to deteriorate,” IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said at a press conference in Washington.

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows Mitt Romney attracting 47% of the vote, while President Obama earns 44%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

    FNC’s weekend ratings in primetime demo are much lower than their total day averages without delivering better P2+ numbers (except for Huckabee). It should be tempting for FNC to try Huckabee plus live news programs in primetime on weekends. (Huckabee typically delivers 1 demo viewer out of 10 P2+, which is low even for cable news.)

    @bruno What does”falling the same path”even mean? You must be government educated.That sounds like something al sharpton would say!

  • Fox News Sucks.

    Republicans come to this web site to jerk off while looking at Fox News ratings, that is the only why they can get it up other than using Viagra!
