Hopefully time will allow the GOP to go through the proper stages of grief and they will return to a more sane, reasonable incarnation of their party. But looks like a lot are going to double down on crazy, if so should be fun watching that train wreck for the next few election cycles.
It's just bizarre. I don't remember who it was... Maybe that General guy... Leading up to the election, he was commenting on how early voting was way down in Ohio and why this was a huge boon for the Republicans. It just so happened that I wrote a story a few hours earlier regarding how successful early voting had been in the state. I had just spoken to several Board of Election officials in many of our most important counties literally a couple hours before I saw the post.

I tried to explain this to him. Apparently, Karl Rove was on FNC ranting about early voting in Ohio being down from '08.

I just don't understand... FNC has such little regard for their viewers, they will lie right to their faces and not fear any repercussions when the results show the opposite of what their so called experts had been preaching.

Rove knew early voting in Ohio was up from '08. It is something very easily checked. FoxNews deemed it was better for "the bubble" if they just made up figures to match their desired reality. But, their viewers don't get angry at the news outlet for being totally dishonest with them... They get angry at the facts themselves for not following the narrative.

Wake up for god's sake. For your own sake.

Honestly, I think guys like Beck, Hannity, etc got together to pop some champagne after Obama officially won re-election. I mean what the hell would they do if he lost? Spend all their conspiracy theory time praising Romney? I didn't even know Beck had his own radio show post Fox until someone here posted that vid of him ranting about leaving civilization and stocking up on arms the day after the election.

And Obama... Let's see, he has instituted Bob Dole's old health reform initiative and he apparently hasn't completely turned around the economy fast enough.

Just like with the 2000 election that I talked about earlier in the thread, could you imagine if the roles were reversed, here?

Yeah I remember that discussion you had with General where you politely explained to him why Rove was clearly wrong. I remember specifically because I think a day after that I ran across an article where it was made clear that early voting was significantly higher this time around in Ohio then it was in '08 and I was going to post it in that thread but I couldn't find it. But it was hilarious and a bit troubling to see him and Rove make fools of themselves and do their best to turn a blind eye to the truth that was staring them in their face. There's this strange willful ignorance and self delusion that is pervading certain factions of that party.

Republicans are the ones who don't blame themselves? Which party is it rely on the government to pay for them?

Well even before the election i had a republican friend telling me how Obama was born in Africa, how Osama was still alive, how they were going to take guns away from people, etc. I'm actually a right of center person and it really turned me off from the GOP.

Isn't there statistics that a plurality of the 47% are GOP supporters??? when you factor other statistics about the education level of states that vote GOP and that they are usually subsidies by Democrat states, then it leads me to ask WTF are you talking about???

Not sure how many of you have clicked on FoxNews for a few moments today, but they're at it again... Now, it is Petraeus' resignation as a result of his affair that is a huge conspiracy spearheaded by Obama. I just heard one of their commentators describe it as "bigger than Watergate" on their now nonstop coverage of the resignation, which has warped into the massive coverup of Benghazi.

They've clearly gotten up, dusted themselves off, and gotten back to their normal programming, which is campaigning against the President of the United States 24 hours a day, seven days a week... Even though they can no longer beat him in an election.

I guess their end-game now is attempted impeachment if the Watergate comment is any indication. Doesn't there come a point, though, where even if Obama really did take part in some wide-ranging conspiracy, they've lost all capital with any reasonable human beings? They have gone well past the "boy who cried wolf" territory.

How many "bigger than Watergates" have there been for Obama via Fox News now?

I can think of, just off the top of my head...

1. The New Black Panther Party Scandel - Some guys carrying night stickes at a polling place were acquitted of any charges by a personal step-in via Obama.

2. Solyndra - A green company which was given a loan by the federal government later filed for bankruptcy. And... That was pretty much it. IMPEACH!

3. Fast and Furious - Convoluted scheme later debunked by Fortune Magazine, which is not exactly a bastion of left-wing journalism (among others).

4. FNC accuses the White House of high level leaks regarding a "kill list." Again, roundly dismissed.

5. Benghazi attack.

And now, this...

Please note, that makes six "bigger than Watergates" since Obama has been in office that I can think of... Probably more that I'm forgetting. This means the over/under on the next four years is five "bigger than Watergates." Who wants to take the odds? I'm saying over.
