Skip to comments.Dick Morris, Karl Rove, Fox News and fools: Not fair and balanced
Posted on 11/09/2012 1:49:46 PM PST by Marketfly1
The network of the Republican Party and the conservative movement suffered a major embarrassment on election night.
For weeks prior to the election, Fox News has been giving valuable air time to pollsters and pundits who predicted a Romney landslide.
These projections were in stark contrast to reputable poll results that were used in other media outlets; however, Fox News viewers were led to believe that the other polls were skewed against Mitt Romney. It turns out Fox News was skewed toward self-promoting experts who were universally wrong about their predictions.

Lets face it. Rush was right, its hard to vote agains’t Santa Claus. Couple that with massive fraud and we have now gone way past being able to correct what ails this country at the ballot box.
I am energized as ever.
Another thing to consider about people tuning out of elections, news, etc. The horizon does not contain good news.
Tough times are coming (debt to DEAL with) beyond just the immediate economic state of the nation. Baby boomers going into retirement and drawing from the system. Gen Xers NOT earning what they thought they would after going to college (jobs being offshored, not being able to put in 15-20 years at one firm) and poor stock market performance (knocking out years of investment growth for retirement).
Prozac nation don’t want to confront this situation.
Fox is in an unenviable position - damned if they do, damned if they don’t. I’m on your side, cheerleading is pointless, and Hannity is worthless. But many here would likely turn off Fox News if they brought any “harsh reality” into the mix.
You have to fight the fight that comes your way, and sometimes you have to dramatically revise your strategy. None of the groups that voted for Obama are capable of winning elections on their own. It's time to start looking for ways to pick apart their coalition.
You are correct.
I drifted from reorganizing FoxNews to the resume of the next candidate.
What caused this to happen? Was it Romney's reputation as an opportunistic flip-flopper? Was it his strategy of "sitting on a lead" and "running out the clock" after the first debate? Was it the rancor generated by a hard-fought primary campaign? Did Romney's Mormon faith spook Christian voters? Was it a combination of all of these? Was it something else?
Well, we would certainly have won Florida.
Your information related to the polls is false.
Those are very good questions.
I’ve been w/o power for the last twelve days. What evidence of fraud are you referring ? I’d like to research it when I can get on the net with something more than a DROID .
Nothing. Rubio isn’t our saviour.
We’ve just seen a huge success of racist politics - hard to imagine Rubio on our ticket wouldn’t have helped.
It was allowing Obama to call him names for months without hitting back for one thing. But I still think that the moron social security / medicare recipients once again were convinced that Romney/ Ryan's plan to save medicaid / social security was gonna take away their gummint check.
The very bastard that is hastening the bankruptcy of the nation and ensuring that social security and every other welfare program is insolvent managed to convince them that Romney/Ryan were a threat to their government teat.
Can't you just love the irony?
Obama lost every state that has a voter I.D. law...interesting
Age and demographics are not on our side. Old Republicans are dying off faster than new ones are being created.
I find it interesting that they keep interviewing these morons as if they have any credibility left with the people.
not a chance!!! Our senior citizens were well aware that Romney/Ryan's plan was to change S.S. and Medicare for future participants (15 or more) years in the future.
That will be done sooner or later but I hope not too far in the future, or it won't work either. There may have been a handful of seniors who believed the pathetic Obama scare tactics, but the bulk of seniors are educated in this matter and are not fooled by nonsense scare tactics.
Obama is appealing to his uneducated masses, Blacks, Hispanics, young women...and they are the ones who elected him. That fact should make you very uncomfortable but not surprised. They elected a totally unqualified, incompetent person to lead the free world....he failed miserably so they re-elected him....when you are dealing with lesser intelligences, this is the result you should expect!!!
