Posted on 09/08/2012 3:06:26 AM PDT by Puzzleman

It began, like the Obama presidency itself, with the loftiest of hopes and the greatest of expectations.

What does she mean, “narrowly favored to win.” I keep hearing that, and it doesn’t seem to fly in the face of reality. If he wins, the election was rigged.

I was open mouthed with shock when I read NBC’s ‘fact check’ comments which showed Obama and Dems in an unfavorable light!

Ok it took me about 30 seconds to become angry. The MSM built the “loftiest of hopes” brick by brick. They refused to ask the man questions and glossed/lied wherever they needed to get him elected. Now they step back and “observe” the dashed hopes of the people as if they had nothing to do with it. Am I to understand that the MSM intends to select someone else for us this time!!!?

“...loftiest of hopes and the greatest of expectations...

Anyone, ANYONE, who had done even the most basic of research on that hate-America, narcissist, Marxist, redistributionist, non-American, muzzie, racist, psychopath, Israel-hating, lowlife, dirtbag, piece-of-filth, would have known some of the truth about him and his felonious Chicago mob of criminal, corrupt lib-dem scum, before Nov 2008’s GE. The mass hysteria was unlike anything I’ve ever seen, except at a 50s circus sideshow tent promising “eternal life in a bottle”, for $25.

“They refused to ask the man questions and glossed/lied wherever they needed to get him elected.”

That’s absolutely right; the perceived shift in coverage as of late leads me to believe that their internal polls indicate an election day disaster for Obama (that apparently can’t be averted with their normal deceptions), and they are trying to claw back some of the credibility they’ve lost over the last 20 years by playing “impartial” now.

Informed Americans have spent that time adjusting to different news sources to compensate; I don’t see the “mainstream media” ever going back to the position of influence it once held. The days of Dan Rather, Andrea Mitchell, and Soledad O’Brien (to name some of the most egregious offenders of late) being anything other than the voice of the left are over.

Dana’s kneepads finally wore through to the gravel of reality and he had to stand up.

The worst was the mass hysteria aspect. Anyone with an education or a passing knowledge of 20th century history (hello MSM) should have been able to spot this and know how dangerous this is in a democracy.

So right, FPC. The eye-popping parallels are right in front of anyone who even bothered to look for ‘em.

Little dana saved some of that hopium from 2008 and is using it to bolster her vision of another 4 years of satan ruling over America and the world.

“The worst was the mass hysteria aspect.”

I agree. No American political convention should ever look like a Hitler rally or a faith-healing revival. Americans are never to worship government, but rather, we are to be wary of it. It is always a threat to our God-given freedom, and that’s why God was unwelcome in Charlotte where government was worshiped.

However, when generations of our citizenry have no clue as to the Founders’ attitude toward the government they were establishing, but have been raised on the pap of celebrity-worship, we now have to be ashamed of gatherings such as the Democrat circus in Charlotte.

No...not happening.....he just needed to give his messiah a little bitch slap...so he can say he is not in the tank completely...

Expect several screeching hit pieces on Romney / Ryan in the future...

Libtards are so predictable ....

"Dana Milbank is a guy."

Using the term loosely.
