    I love Foxnews.

  • usa8888

    Fox takes another beating in the demo with Hannity and Greta losing to Rachel and Lawrence. Billo holds on with a huge number of old viewers, as usual………………

  • usa8888

    in spite of the Koch Bros and Adelson trying to buy the election with hundreds of millions of dollars of outright lies in ad buys all across the county (e.g., saying that Obama doesn’t care about the middle class and Robme does), AND in spite of the fact the the right wing GOP tried their hardest to suppress the vote in many states…they still couldn’t win the election. The right wing GOP’s views are those of a bigoted dinosaur, with which even the moderate repubs disagree!!! Chris Christie saw first hand how effective and concerned Obama was and lauded him. With people like Christie, lots could get done. But when you have the incredibly uneducated right wing kooks (like Palin, Perry, etc) and the religious fanatics (like Insanitorum), there is no way to reason with these type people. They, the right wing kooks, want the US to default on its debt, even though it has already been incurred. It’s hard to imagine such backward thinking, but we see it empirically happening…..

  • usa8888

    Obama continues to have more people liking him and his agenda that any GOP memeber. And all the polls show the American People support Obama’s fiscal cliff plan by a clear majority. They also support the way he handled the hurricane in NY/NJ. The GOP right wingers in the House would not approve sufficient funding to rebuild the area. If it was money to ban birth control, the right wing GOP would have been all for it……….

  • DB

    usa8888, in what universe is 397 greater than 420??

  • usa8888

    My post doesn’t discuss the overall numbers, which are very close, just Hannity’s and Greta’s. Much of MSNBC’s audience was watching the college bowl game that night, also….

    As noted many times, Fox’s ratings have been slipping for 3 months now and MSNBC’s are rising………….

  • Bobbyv


    You are praising CC now, I am curious what you would say if he was running. I have a feeling he would quickly move into the “kook” category. But I could be wrong.

  • DB

    USA8888, you obviously haven’t followed the story of the woman who was promised by Obama she wouldn’t run into any red tape and would be taken care of. He said it then left because he didn’t give a flip about her and she knows it and is speaking out. She knows better than Chris Christie how much Obama cares.

  • usa8888

    DB–The right is pushing water uphill, as usual. Again, the American People by a large majority approve of the job Obama and Christie did with the hurricane. The right wingers in the House tried avoid allocating funds for clean up and finally allocated a few after they started to look bad. Fox tries its best to make Obama look bad but they fail every time and the American People favor Obama by a majortiy…..

    Dear usa8888 – the next time you decide to refer to a group of people as “uneducated” you might want to check your own spelling and grammar, along with your facts. You have obviously been brainwashed and are just repeating what you hear from the liberal hacks in the media. Did you pay any attention to the negative adds run by the Obama campaign and PACs during the election? Republicans suppressing the vote? Seriously? If you are referring to states requiring ID to vote, give me a break! Do some research…you will find that almost all voter fraud cases have been committed by Democrats, not Republicans. Polls: Over and over again a very high percentage of people polled can’t even name or identify the Vice President, and you trust their opinions about the details of the fiscal cliff plan? Even the congressmen who voted for the bill didn’t know exactly what was in it because they only had 3 minutes to read it before the vote, and you think the people being polled read it? I bet you don’t even know what is in the bill now. Do you even know that there are $41 of tax increases to $1 in spending cuts plus new spending that will add an additional $4 trillion to our debt over the next 10 years? Do you think our debt problem is going to be solved like that? “The right wing kooks want the US to default on its debt”? What on earth are you talking about? Once again…you are also wrong about the hurricane. Polls show what people hear, or don’t hear, in the media. The liberal media doesn’t report anything that could make the Obama administration look bad, so they are not reporting all the trouble the hurricane victims are having in their dealings with FEMA. FEMA is no better now with Sandy than it was with Katrina, but I don’t blame Obama personally for that. Other than the military, for the most part the government just doesn’t handle anything in a competent manner. Look up a guy named Scott McGrath. He is kind of serving as a spokesman for Sandy victims who are very unsatisfied with how things have been handled. As far as the Sandy emergency relief bill goes…do you know anything at all about it? The Senate passed a $60 billion bill, about half of which is pork unrelated to Sandy. Some examples include: fishery disasters in Alaska and Mississippi, money to buy a new car for the DOJ Inspector General, and money to fix museum rooftops in DC. Why aren’t you outraged that our self serving politicians are using this disaster to cram a bunch of things they want into this bill? That is why the Republicans in the House didn’t pass the bill. You don’t have to take my word for any of this, but if you care about the truth you’ll do the research on your own. When you realize it is true you might question where you have been getting your news and information from, because you are being misled and flat out lied to.

  • Average viewer

    usa888 is a hopeless cause. He is happy in his bubble. We got to catch the youth before they are swallowed up by the blob.

  • Joe

    What are the numbers for Blaze Tv. I love that Chanel. Beck & Willow tell it like it is!!

  • usa8888

    JP–You can’t be serious. As I have stated repreatedly–mnaybe you missed it–the right wing GOP{bankrolled by radical billionaires Koch Bros and Adleson) tried to BUY the last election. They supressed the vote all over the country and run hundreds of millions of dollars of lies on tv. Their lackeys made lines so long, it took up to 8 hours to vote…because these lackeys purposely understaffed the voting offices and did not have enough voting machines. Further, there was no need for checking id’s –there had been virtually no cases of voter fraud. On the contrary , most of the voter fraud was committed by the GOP and documented on TV.. The right wing kooks in the House are so UNEDUCATED that they WANT the government to default on its debt–debt that has already been incurred. Fortunately, the moderate Repubs voted with the democrats and passed the fiscal cliff bill, which Obama and the majority of the country supported. There is no comparison with Sandy and Katrina (your friend Brownie screwed everything up). The GOP didn’t pass the Senate version of the fiscal bill initially not because of some pork in it (that could have been negotiated out easily) but because the right wingers are inherently AGAINST any tax increases for the wealthy, whose tax rates are at 60 year lows and who are NOT creating jobs. Also, Norquist’s anachronistic thinking has held these right wingers hostage. Most of the debt was incurred as a result of Bush’s unfunded wars, drug program, and tax cuts. Further, you NEVER drastically cut spending in a bad recession. The right wing is so uneducated and so backward thinking they don’t understand simple economics……..
