I sincerely apologise for assuming that the mindnumbingly ignorant and halfwitted letter that appeared on your blog was written by you. Next time I will try to pay more attention.
Says Riot On the Streets.
Err, buddy, if you know “nothing” about Obama having spend several months consuming right-wing-only media about him, then maybe that’s your fault, huh?
I love some of this stuff…
You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others.
You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.
Just as Republicans proposed in the 90s, huh?
You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
This guy has been on the kool-aid real hard.
You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.
Stop me if this is getting too delusional…
You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.
Which is why Mr Riot is so qualified to criticize you…
You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O’Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
What about the Sullivans, the Drums, the Parkers, who have been cast aside from the “Conservative” movement for daring to question the idiocy of the bubble much of the American right (cf. Mr Riot) live in?
You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing. Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years. Lou Pritchett
You scare, Mr Riot, because you have swallowed hook, line and sinker the rotten bile spoon fed you by the right-wing-media-hate machine.
Listem bud. Obama is the democratically elected president of the USA. You are entitled not to like that. You are entitled to criticize him… But your “letter” is just a list of paranoid junk cranked out by unscrupulous media moguls who have nothing to offer but fear, hatred and divisiveness.
All of your posts are completely coming from the left and refuse to acknowledge the bi-partisan roots of the problem.
Your Fox problem really is pretty deep seated, isn’t it? Covering a story is “promoting it?” What is your issue with a diverse and free press?
You must have missed all the stories this week about Hannity in Cincinnati, yeah?
The birthers are small fringe group with about as much support as the lefties who tried to disqualify McCain for being born in a US territory. You are smearing with a broad brush in clear attempt to dehumanize anybody who dares to disagree with you.
45% of GOP agree “Obama not born in the USA”. Hmmm…
Taxes are going up because government is getting bigger. It’s been getting bigger under the last three Presidents. Obama is just continuing a trend, but he’s also massively increasing the pace of the growth of government, creating larger deficits and looking for new ways to raise taxes (VAT for example).
Jesus fuck. Obama *had* to increase the deficit to deal with the economic crash. McCain would have had to do that too. Palin would have had to. ANyone would have had to. It was either that or let western capitalism fall.
Now there is the prospect of taxes being raised to pay for it, you are freaking out?
Let’s try to get to some sort of consensus here. Government expenditure is too big. The trouble is that neither side wants to address that. The tea partiers don’t want to either. They want their entitlements to remain and everyone else’s to be cut (just as it happens like everyone else ;>).
Says No Moss Here.
Let’s get back to the point. You are complaining about fiscal irresponsibility by the government. Yet all you offer is political obstruction and obfuscation, and right-wing media coverage which is all about whipping the populace into a frenzy of ignorant outrage.
Incisive news coverage is good. Politicians should be closely examined and criticised where they do not keep their promises and where they act unwisely…
But the political debate in America is, frankly, nuts, and the coverage by much of Fox News borders on the insane.
Is it right that the Republican Party should find itself dancing to the tune of a news network? Is it right that this news network sponsors and promotes political rallies?
What astounds me is that time and time again right-wingers offer the mindbending response that ‘everyone else is biased so fox needs to be more biased the other way to make up for it.”
The stupid. It burns…
Fox News allows criticism for EVERY politician; republican or democrat and so on, to be wrong….
…before you go shooting off your ignorant left-wing mouths, shut them. Unless you are able to reason wisely without having a set ideology before-hand.
Says Sarah’s Mind & Soul.
I ask again. Have you ever seen Fox News say anything positive about Obama? It’s a simple question. If you are able to reason wisely without having a set ideology before-hand…
Just so you know, Sarah, I respect many right-wingers and their ideas too.
Says Sarah’s mind and soul poured into words. Has she ever seen Fox News say anything positive about Obama? Is she seriously saying that other news broadcasters never allow criticism of Obama?
For the american right-wing, ignorance has become a virtue…
Ronald Reagan’s Memoirs: [F]or the eight years I was president, I never let my dream of a nuclear-free world fade from my mind.
Rudy Giuliani, 2010: A nuclear-free world has been a 60-year dream of the Left, just like socialized health-care. This new policy, like Obama’s government-run health program, is a big step in that direction. President Obama [just like that stinking hippy Reagan] thinks we can all hold hands, sing songs, and have peace symbols.
It seems like much of the American right-wing has given up any vestige of integrity.
How do they sleep at night!?
