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.

It isn't new at all. It's the plot to the book/movie "Atlas Shrugged." They have basically gone off to live in the imagination of Ayn Rand. Some of them have been there for a long time.

WRONG. Every good, god-fearing, fox news-watching Republican knows that Canada and Australia are conservative paradises. There, the government only exists to make sure no one gets abortions, even in cases of legitimate rape and to make sure the gays don't marry. Socialists are rounded up and summarily executed. This is the Aussie seal and national slogan:

Republicans forget that Ronald Reagan raised taxes and proposed amnesty for all illegal aliens.

In today's GOP, he's a RINO

republicans will lose the next election too unless they do not change their platform to include even the slightest amount of appeal to minorities.

IB4 republican party disbands in 2016 becuz they still only rely on white voters.......

that number will be around 68-70% in 2016 so Gluck Republicans
72% in 2012 and decreasing INC Rubio Marco
