    **lowering my head in shame since I likes watchin’ ’em snag ‘dem ‘gators but I shure as heck did-uhnt vote for no ‘Bama!**

  • Ratboy

    Dr Maddow – “I have a PHD and all I get is this crappy second rate tv show?????!!!” :shock:

  • Cathy

    Ratboy, we could add Fox news and Fox business news together.

  • Ratboy

    I watch Swamp People cuz the gators drool less than Chris Mathews and are smarter than Ed Schultz

  • Ratboy

    Sniff….sniff sniff…..do you smell dung? I feel an Idiot Alert coming

  • TZCA

    Stan T,

    I don’t tend to hold people accountable for asking questions. It does look awkward on broadcast because you would think the host(ess) would have been more prepared, but I’m educated and there are many things in my field of study I to which I don’t know the answer.

    Even though Ms. Maddow has misrepresented information on an occasion, so have others, and she has apologized.

    I do hold people accountable when their ideology is so much a part of their very fiber that they fail to look at someone whom they support and ask the “who, what, when, where, and why”. Instead they attack others of the opposite ideology for asking the 5 double-u’s, bringing up petty things to try to show how backward they are. And then to do so with such a smug attitude rubs me wrong. This is my perception from the hours I’ve wasted when I did watch Ms. Maddow.

    One of the reasons O’Reilly is #1 is because he challenges even those he supports. O’Reilly was no sweetheart to Romney.

  • TZCA

    To be fair, I rarely watch Hannity for some of the same reasons. He’s too rash and rarely challenges anyone besides liberals. The big difference is that I share some of Hannity’s ideologies, so its easier to bare through some of his rants.

  • TZCA

    ^ bear (not bare)

  • TZCA

    lol @ gators drooling less than Matthews and being smarter than Schultz.

  • TZCA

    Ratboy, prepare for your public service announcement.

    Tzca–you may be an engineer –if so, you should anayze things with a little more depth. You need to make sure your independent variables are causative and not just correlated with the dependent variable –stock appreciation. The stock market was driven by phoney factors during the bubbles mentioned by TZ–notably a dot com frenzy which had nothing to do with profit. Further, most people then did not understand computers and were sucked in. The next bubble was cause by extensive real estate fraud and bank fraud which drove house prices to phoney highs and had no basis in finance or reality. This time it’s different–the market is being driven by the highest corporate profits ever and lots of m&a activity, not to mention emerging markets. The Fed helped, too, by buying bonds because the right wing was obstructing Obama’s jobs plan and threatening to bring the economy down. Fortunately, the Fed was on top of things and we are much better off for it. The 2008 recession is the worst in history–in comparison with the past recessions. The Stock market now has RECORD PROFITS, which it didn’t have in 2000–it was pie in the sky then. It takes time to recover from the worst recession of all time, given the right wing is fighting all job creation activity. Further, we are coming out of the worst downturn in 70 years and profits should continue strong as the economy expands further. On top of this, China and India and emerging markets are helping the world economy. In short, things now are COMPLETELY different from the recessions TZ alluded to and his rudimentary correlation anaysis is fundamentally flawed……end of story…..

  • usa8888

    RAt still can’t give us any right wing GOP accomplishments….

  • Ratboy

    IDIOT ALERT!!!!!!!!!

  • TZCA

    :lol: Ratboy. Thanks!

  • Mark2

    @Cathy “Ratboy, we could add Fox news and Fox business news together”

    Not according to you guys. You remember…”if there not on this page(list), then there not considered Cable News”

    HLN/CNN for the win!!!

  • Mark2

    @Ratboy “IDIOT ALERT!!!!!!!!!”

    Don’t be so hard on TZCA like that…lol.

  • usa8888

    Hey, rat–you can’t sell another house until you fess up and tell us what accomplishments the right wing GOP has made……..

  • AppleStinx

    Yikes. :grin: MSNBC: #4 in the demo.

  • sj

    I cannot believe that anyone could seriously believe any of the garbage they hear on Fox News. They are the most hateful bigoted people on that network, that I have ever seen. You can always tell on here who watches it all the time, because they echo all their talking points, with the same propaganda hate filled “pat each other on the back yay say, attitude.” Cracks me up every time I come over here…More entertaining than fox. Gotta go, good ole boys n gals. Enjoy your tea!

    Obama jobs plan?

    Was that loading the NLRB with anti busines folk snd suing Boeing and promoting card check. Or not ok’ing Keystone or failing to issue drilling permits. Or the Affordable Care Act that now the govenment admits in the Beige book is restricting job growth. Or was it the raft of regulations in Dodd Frank or the flat out miss allocation of funds in the stimulas bill (remember infastructure, roads and bridges) what we got was Solindra and son of Solindra I guess I just missed his jobs plan.
