    They don't even bother to conceal their bias anymore, huh? No wonder righties love Fox News like they do. It feeds them what they want to hear.
    You are right, but FOX News is not much different than Obama feeding Democrats what THEY want to hear. And that's the plan. As long as the politicians, Democrats and Republicans, can keep the American people divided and fighting each other, they get to play ping pong with our balls.

    And what specific results listed in that response is wrong?

    Same question, what facts presented in that memo are false? Debt? Unemployment? I could add labor force, misery indext, employment numbers as well. All are worse than when he took office.

    So you repeat the same nonsense and it is somehow more credible ? Sure there were many more subprimes handed out. That is what started, and then accelerated, the bubble. Government mandated it in the beginning, and used FF to underwrite them, therefore shifting risk, and creating the moral hazard that became loans for anybody.

    What libs refuse to admit is that in a normal capitalist market, banks won't make loans willy-nilly, as the market quickly disposes of such excess risk. But bring in Government, a nine-fold increase in the size of FF in 15 years, to where by 2002 FF held 50% of the entire mortgage market, then saw it decrease to 40% as other lenders rushed to get a bigger slice of the bubble, then to see FF (government, and do not doubt it) also make their loans even more reckless so that they could get back over 50% of the market, which they did.

    Government is behind over half of all loans, and instead of going "WTF", libs say "move along".

    I'm no fan of Fox News, but that's precisely what it is.

    Wrong thread. Start another one if you want to rehash this.

    Obama was calling for unity ... How is that divisive?

    I think liberals hate Fox for having hate audacity of not being liberal like the rest of the news.

    I suppose the fact that they have higher viewership than the other channels supports argument that they are more in sync with the views of the average American.
