    Analysis: The t-bag kooks are now in full control of the GOP, which means: 1) Boehner will not be re-appointed Speaker in January and 2) the GOP will suffer a landslide defeat in 2014…………

  • smith

    I don’t know what these people are smoking, but Fox still won in total viewers. so there.

  • usa8888

    This just in from MSNBC: Cantor says his people are going home for a week and may come back as needed. In other words, he is quite willing to raise taxes on the middle class while insisting the wealthy have NO tax rate increases. Norquist has him by the chehuevas…….This will insure the GOP defeat in 2014………..

  • usa8888

    SMith –if you were in ther ratings business (like Rupert is), you would know that you are wrong. Ignorance is bliss.

  • Sam

    Dude Rupert’s empire seems to be collapsing ! Not only MSNBC is crushing them, now even CNN is becoming a major competitor.

  • Bobbyv

    To all of you celebrating Fox’s demise, what is the role of the media? Should they be lap dogs like MSNBC?

  • TZCA

    @Bobbyv

    Yes.

  • usa8888

    Bobby–you mean lap dogs like Fox??????????

  • Bobbyv

    I stand corrected, thanks TZ

  • Sam

    I hope Obama won’t bow to those suckers republicans like he always does, they are acting like if Romney won the elections.

    They lose either way whether the cliff is avoided or not.

  • Bobbyv

    US,

    Fine, Fox is a lap dog and is against the Dems. Who else? As Mark2 and I talked about the other day, are we going to rely on the other media outlets to hold the Dems accountable? We know they will hold the R’s accountable, and they should, but do you think they have the same diligence with the other side?

  • RedBarSoup

    http://www.cnn.com/2012/12/20/politics/fiscal-cliff/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

    House Speaker John Boehner’s proposal to avert the looming fiscal cliff’s automatic tax increases has failed to get enough Republican support, throwing yet another monkey wrench into the contentious debate.

    Boehner said earlier Thursday that he was confident that his so-called Plan B — which would extend tax cuts that are set to expire at year’s end for most people while allowing rates to increase to 1990s levels on income over $1 million — would pass the House, and in the process put pressure on President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Senate. But that gambit seemed in doubt Thursday, as Republican leaders struggled to get all their members to sign on, knowing the chamber’s Democrats oppose it.

  • TZCA

    @Bobbyv

    You are so very welcome. :twisted:

  • RedBarSoup

    @bobbyV

    You also have the shock jocks on the radio who has more listeners per episode than CNN and MSNBC, not counting GBTV. Don’t forget that buddy.

  • Mark2

    Boehner must be crying like a baby right now.

    The GOP is slowly dying out.

  • Bobbyv

    RedBar,

    That is true, they are on the R side, but I would not put them in the same class as NBC, CBS, ABC. I see those as media staples that people have always looked to for the news. Even though their numbers are down from years ago they are still size able.

  • Bobbyv

    Mark2,

    We should all hope not. We need more political options, not less

  • RedBarSoup

    http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/12/20/cnn-poll-are-gop-policies-too-extreme/?hpt=hp_t1

    Just over half the public says that the GOP should give up more than the Democrats in any bipartisan solution to the country’s problems, according to a new national survey.

    And a CNN/ORC International poll also indicates that a slight majority of Americans sees the Republican party’s policies and views as too extreme, a first for the GOP, and fewer than a third say they trust congressional Republicans more than President Barack Obama to deal with the major issues facing the nation.

  • Bobbyv

    RedBar,

    Yes, I read that on CNN. R’s are treading into dangerous waters

  • cathy

    CNN said today that the deal the President offered is not the same as he campaigned on. They said, Obama ran on a 2 to 1, spending reductions to tax increase and that his offered deal was less than 1 to 1. Did you see that….. CNN said it….
