where are the journalists?
That's a good question.
In the US there used to be several rules relating to news reporting. The first was the "Chinese Wall" that said there had to be an absolute separation between the news department and entertainment or advertising. The second was called "The Fairness Doctrine" which required media outlets provide equal time to opposing points of view. A third limited the number of media outlets that could be owned by any one entity.
All three were torn down during the Christian Right Coup that took over the Republican Party and led to the election of Ronald Reagan.

Re: Foolish Democrats
We though when they denied the cardinals' blessing that it was some seperation of church and state thing, turns out its cause they are supporting the POTUS' religion instead.
Do you have any evidence that the POTUS' religion is anything other than Protestant Christian?
Was the Cardinal denied the right to speak in public?

Re: YAWN
Like the current crop of Republicans it seems you do not want to be subject to fact checking.

And hopefully in my lifetime we will see an openly Atheist, Muslim or Jewish President.

Re: Lyin' Ryan
Lying can be a very important skill for a President, but it needs to be done well.
The examples in this thread raise questions that I think are significant. Does Ryan know he lied, does he have the intelligence to understand when lying is appropriate and to lie convincingly, or is he simply relying on the ingrained traits of today's CCoI and Republicans to accept based on Source rather than question the Content?

Fortunately there is a bright ray of hope.
Fortunate for the US, recent advances in robotics offer hope for the Real Americans. It seems that the 47% is simply not necessary. All those repetitive task jobs like trash pickup and grocery check out and factory line assembly work and janitorial services and burger flipping and house cleaning and pool maintenance can be done by new human friendly robots at the equivalent of $4.00 an hour. Best of all, they will not even need Social Security, Health Care, Vacations or Retirement Plans so all of those unnecessary expenses can just fade away.
Of course there will always be a demand for artists and performers, athletes and entertainers, a good butler or maid as well as top line health care, golf pros, pool boys, gigolos and prostitutes but only enough to provide for the needs of the elite.

Re: Moochers
What I mostly found so funny was that Romney should insult low-income republicans like that.
Doesn't that assume that low-income Republicans would see it as an insult?
Remember, many think in terms of US and THEM and they know he is not talking about US but THEM.

Re: Fortunately there is a bright ray of hope.
Maybe to "We were the 47%"?

May I ask, what if anything would that have to do with whether or not Obama would be a good candidate for president?
Have they ever heard of a guy named Alexander Hamilton?
Do the avoidance schools of the CCoI teach any history?

It's time to stop the Attacks on AMERICA and the AMERICAN WAY of LIFE!
You must understand that attacks on AMERICA and OUR SYSTEM have long been the tactics of LIBERALS, COMMUNISTS, SOCIALISTS, HOMOSEXUALS and ANARCHISTS. Consider that well known LIBERAL, COMMUNIST, SOCIALIST, HOMOSEXUAL, ANARCHIST Theodore Roosevelt who based his "Square Deal" on Consumer Protection, Conservation and Controlling Corporations. Why he even said:
quote:
The attacks by these great corporations on the Administration’s actions have been given a wide circulation throughout the country, in the newspapers and otherwise, by those writers and speakers who, consciously or unconsciously, act as the representatives of predatory wealthof the wealth accumulated on a giant scale by all forms of iniquity, ranging from the oppression of wage-workers to unfair and unwholesome methods of crushing out competition, and to defrauding the public by stock-jobbing and the manipulation of securities.
Imagine, corporations manipulating securities. He wanted to stop fraud and stop oppression of wage workers.
Is there any reason to think that Republicans should not oppose such LIBERAL, COMMUNIST, SOCIALIST, HOMOSEXUAL, ANARCHISTIC ideas?
