The mainstream media is in the bag for the President, but that’s no surprise.

The surprise is that despite the best efforts of the shills at ABC, CBS, NBC, NY Times, Et al, it isn’t working this time ‘round and it hasn’t worked a number of times in the past either. There is a general knowledge that the mainstream press is liberally slanted, and that sense has been there for some time despite the Liberal presses best efforts to ignore it. Nixon, Reagan, Bush… None of them would have been elected if it were the mainstream press making the call, and they have usually called it wrong each time a Conservative has been elected.

The American electorate is much smarter and more reasoned than the mainstream press gives them credit for, and the internet and alternative news outlets are the likely reason. Conservative slanted Fox News usually has double or triple the amount of viewers that liberally biased news outlets get, and news sites like ‘RealClearPolitics’ are actually very unbiased sources of information, offering opinions from all sides of the spectrum and it is frequented by intelligent voters from all perspectives.

If you look at the last three Democrats to get elected Presidentially Carter, Clinton and Obama, you might suspect that it was the Liberal press that helped them out and to a small degree that’s true… But the reality is this. McCain, Dole, Bush 1 and Ford were all very weak Republican candidates. Romney is not a weak candidate and that scares the heck out of the Democrats and their buddies in the media. His chances for being elected are really quite good, because in the end, Americans can figure out the weak from the strong and Obama is very weak in comparison to Romney.

The press did their darnedest to make Romney look weak, but that first debate washed away that falsehood and when the American electorate has the choice between a strong Conservative and a weak Liberal, they always choose the Conservative.

Conservative slanted Fox News...

You really think so? I know many here would disagree with that, myself included.
