    Jayson, the supposed voter suppression was having people have a photo I.D. in order to vote. O’Reilly had that many times. You needed a photo I.D. to get into the Democrat Convention. Requiring a photo I.D. is not voter suppression.

    Cleaning up the voter rolls was another supposed Republican voter suppression move. The voter rolls should be cleaned all the time. My brother passed 20 years ago. It took me five years of calling the Registrar of Voters in my county to have his name removed from the voter polls. There’s NO reason for that. Those voter rolls should be cleaned up every few years.

    O’Reilly covered the supposed Republican voter suppression many times. I would then go and read about it and see what the problem was.

  • Mark


    I do think having voter ID laws isn’t a bad idea but if you are going to try pass them you should chart out a 3-4 year plan to implement it not come out with them a year before a general election. Beyond that I believe these laws should come from bi-partisan groups to make sure nobody gets screwed over and it’s done properly. Personally I think Obamacare is a perfect opporunity to get everybody a valid photo ID then you can implement all these laws in 2016. The Republicans laws just felt to much like they were going out of their way to screw over some voters who won’t be able to get ID in time for the 2012 election

    Beyond that what about all the cutting out many days of early voting in many swing states. What was the point of that? In Ohio they had to fight the secretary of State(John Husted) their on ever little day they could get and he basically fought back everytime to the point it became comical and obvious what he was doing(ie trying to stall the process). It’s a disgrace seeing all these lines that people waited up to 8 hours to vote, in you guessed it districts that generally vote Democrat in key swing states.

    As for Republican voter suppression, what did they have a story one the one black panther in Pennsylvania. Or how about Romney got 0 votes in like 57 districts(districts that I am guessing were majority black people) lol

    Rarely Bill-O makes sense, see below.

    Ooopsy! Fox Lied again!!

    Fox News Lies About Alleged Tom Ricks Apology

    For the past couple of days the media has been abuzz with reports about foreign policy expert, Tom Ricks, calling Fox News “a wing of the Republican Party” while on Fox News (video below). It was a perfectly appropriate remark in the context of the discussion, but Fox host Jon Scott abruptly ended the interview, which only made the controversy more prominent.

    Ricks’ observation that Fox is the media division of the Republican Party is neither original nor unique. Many others have noticed the same obvious bias, including the former director of communications for the White House, Anita Dunn. And conservatives like David Frum have recognized that Fox has become even more influential in GOP politics than an ordinary PR firm would be.

    Since the on-air dust-up, Fox VP of News, Michael Clemente, told The Hollywood Reporter that Ricks had apologized to him off the air. That’s a convenient tale considering there is no evidence or witnesses to the alleged apology. Clemente went even further by personally insulting Ricks saying that he “doesn’t have the strength of character to do that publicly.”

    And it doesn’t end there. Ricks later responded to Clemente in remarks to the Hollywood Reporter saying…

    “Please ask Mr. Clemente what the words of my supposed apology were. I’d be interested to know. Frankly, I don’t remember any such apology.”

    Now, this morning, Clemente fired back again calling Ricks’ response “utterly dishonest,” and snidely needling him:

    “I’ll refresh his memory – what he said following the segment was, ‘Sorry… I’m tired from a non-stop book tour.’ Perhaps now he can finally get some rest.”

    This is typical defensive behavior from Fox News. They do not countenance criticism, and when they encounter it they lash out wildly at their critics. One memorable example of this is when a study was released by the University of Maryland that Confirms That Fox News Makes You Stupid, Clemente hit back by insulting the University’s students who had nothing to do with the study. He also alleged that the university was ranked as the “Best Party School,” by the Princeton Review, which was patently false.

    So we have evidence that Clemente will brazenly lie when he is confronted by criticism. Consequently, it would be foolish to accept his assertion that Ricks had apologized in the privacy of Clemente’s office. And why would anyone assume that an executive at a network that makes up the news they broadcast would be the least bit averse to making up conversations that cast critics in a negative light?

    Looks like CNNs election high is wearing off quickly. Monday’s Andeerson Cooper was 9 and 13% of the audience and last nights he was 10% of the audience for both showings.
    Hannity and Gretta is still below 50% of the audience at 45 & 43%. Maddow and O’donnell are still doing well and 32 & 35% but the earlier shows are back down in the mid 20s.

  • Mark

    I should point out, I find the funniest part of all these fast tracked State voter ID laws, cutting down early voting along with all the over the top ridiculous ab0rtion laws(ie ultrasound for no reason other then to humiliate the person getting an ab0rtion) plus union busting laws, is they did something Obama probably would have a hard time doing……which is rally his base that probably would have had no reason to vote otherwise given what little Obama did in his 4 years to help those groups(especially the minorities and union guys).

    The Tea Party was indirectly a godsend for Obama’s re-election bid.

  • BevAG

    Mark, I’m on Obamacare in California. They started it two years ago. I had to show I.D. There’s no reason having to show I.D to vote is even an issue, even if it’s stated the day before the election. It just should be an automatic just like it is for anything else. There’s nothing suppressing about it.

    Was the Democrat National Convention suppressing anything when they required voter I.D. to enter their convention? No.

    The point is that all of this was being shown on Fox News. I saw on Fox News how they were saying that the Republicans were trying to suppress the vote. Fox News wasn’t NOT showing that. And then I would get online and see what the hoopla was all about.

    And then you read about how the Democrats were trying to keep the military votes out. That was as obvious and comical as you’re saying the Republicans were doing.

    But having a voter I.D. is just a no-brainer.

  • BevAG

    Jeff: You’re all concerned about Ricks and some dumb apology, but you’re not all riled up about the Whitehouse lying and covering up the murder and sodomy of our Ambassador and four other Americans?

    MSNBC and CNN and every other news organization should be all over the fact that we have four dead Americans who asked for help from this Administration and got nothing and then were murdered and then we have some guy sitting in jail now based on a video he produced because the government wanted to use him as a scapegoat. That should be appalling to EVERY American.

  • Mark


    If you have a system that doesn’t require ID for many years, then just trying to push it so you need it within a year is fast tracking and potentially will cause alot of people who are used to the old ways to not be able to vote due to not understanding their is a new law. As I said I have no problem trying to implement a voter ID system but why did they go out of their way to fast track it, is it to much coming up with a 4 year plan to push for people getting photo IDs so they have them in time for the 2016 election?

    As for the military votes out it should be pointed out the Democrats were pushing that everybody had the same rights to vote on the weekend before the election in Ohio, Fox News spin was the Democrats want to stop military people from voting. Democrats won the battle and no military persons voting rights was harmed.

    I’m ok with the idea of requiring everyone to use an ID to vote. However, you have to have a plan to get everyone an ID. The ID should be free. And, lawmakers (the majority of which were Republican) should have pushed the effective date to much later (and not the 2012 election). Basically, I don’t have an issue with what they tried to do…it’s all about how they tried to do it.

    Here are some examples of Republican tactics to limit Democratic turn-out:

    1) Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) cut early voting from 14 days to 8 days. We all saw those outrageously long lines.

    2) Ohio Secretary Of State John Husted (R) tried to eliminate early voting in democratic districts. When that was struck down by the courts, Husted tried to cut early voting all over Ohio. When that failed in the courts, he cut early voting hours.

    Now, I’m not a democrat (or a republican). But, I can clearly see a concerted effort by many republican-controlled state legislatures to…for lack of a better word…suppress democratic turnout. That concerns me greatly. I want to see 100% turnout on both sides. I want to see all Americans participate in the process. In fact, I’ve been kicking around the idea of making our national election day a holiday.

    @ Jayson …..wish we could all be more like you.

    OReilly is kicking EDs Tail when on live. Olberman did much better. When Eds claim to fame is he squeaks out a win in reruns well you know the Bar is set very low for his show.

    Babies don’t walk BEFORE they crawl. First, the previous president must explain to the American people why he sent thousands of Americans to their deaths when almost every intelligence service, with the exception of Dick Cheney, told him that there WERE NOT any WMDS in Iraq. When that has been settled, then we’ll ask the current president why he decided to lie about the motive of the Muslim fundamentalists who attacked the consulate in Benghazi. You can’t go around whining about Benghazi when we have yet to receive sensible answers for the unresolved deaths of THOUSANDS.
