Actually, I used the ratings data that is reported in the trades. Fox News may be #1 for cable news but compared to Jersey Shore or American Idol, those numbers are a drop in the bucket. Even Duck Dynasty drew more viewers on Wednesday nights than O'Reilly and Hannity combined
The GOP Platform ahs not changed that much from the Raegan era till now. Only the types of candidates the Repubs have put up has changed. In fact, I'll go as far as to say that Conservative/Republican are now broken brands in the minds of most. As Conservative has shifed more to the right, along with the party, today the term Conservative has become a liablity except to the hardcore mostly white older generation. I don't think the Republicans can repair the brand. Not until they get into the 21st Century with their platform and ideas.
"All those things bother me: The populism, the lying and the scapegoating and the xenophobia bother me, but then there’s a layer of incompetence here. I suppose, in a way, we should be thankful: If he had a coherent ideology, he’d probably be more dangerous." P J O'Rourke
and I would agree there is a LARGE fracture between Repub- Conservative...I dont see Conservative as a liability, I think its where many would like to see their party return but they dont have the nutz to pull it off
theres more http://www.dailycaller.com/ in 2002 Obama gave a speech saying the wealthy embrace non violence because they want to make sure folks don't take their stuff this is class warfare at its best.
[QUOTE=Franco;1018138]I think that most of the people know that Obama is racist and a socialist. But, after 8 years of Bush the Repubs lost a lot of credibility and the majority wanted anyone but another GOP President. That and the Repubs are a very small minority with their social ideas. I also think that there is information in his school recordes that would sink his bid for reelection and am surprised that Romney didn't ask for that to be released when he released his 2010 tax return.
On the surface, Obama looks like the guy that can get the job done because most voters are passive when it comes to politics. 99% of Americans pay zero attention to Fox News or Rush Limbaugh. Add that the Repubs have done a poor job of reconnecting with America hanging onto a Draconian political platform. I don't think it will be pretty come November 6th. I really hope I am wrong![/QUOTE]
Based on your track record from the primaries and football the last two years, I'm certain you will be wrong.
We saw the real Obama tonight
report by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) finds that the across-the-board cuts set to go into effect January 2 could result in a loss of over 78,000 education jobs. These cuts will also reduce education program funding dramatically, impacting essential services to over nine million students. Obama didnt help the last 4 yrs what will he do about this NOW.
