    I read Fox news specifically to get the conservative slant on the news. I also read some other news sources to get other angles...
    What a fascinating effort to deny; here is what I read from your quote:

    ......But they need to brush up on their finesse in hiding their obvious slant to the news a little better, for God's sake!
    What part am I missing here? Hell, James Carville could have written this piece and would have been proud of it!

    Why don't you quote my entire post?

    I still appreciate the fact that Fox News exists and they, like the liberal press, have their place. But they need to brush up on their finesse in hiding their obvious slant to the news a little better, for God's sake!

    Sure thing. There were 4 bidding cities, Tokyo, Chicago, Rio, and Madrid.

    Tokyo Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama was there.
    Spanish King Juan Carlos was there.
    Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was there.
    President Obama was there.

    I would think he had better things to do. Not to mention the gross unadulterated typical arrogance Michelle and Obama constantly display by always talking about themselves.
    Economically it makes sense if winning the bid could bring billions of dollars of revenue to the country. Would you support Obama savings a few tens of thousands of dollars to possibly forfeit billions of potential revenue?

    I guess Obama just doesn't have the gravitas to overcome Bush in any area. He lacks the persona, the charisma, and toughness needed to make Bush disappear from the world stage.

    He is an EPIC FAIL.

    I will call a spade a spade, no matter which side is the guilty party. Fox News claims to be 'fair and balanced'. They are, in fact, slanted, just like the other networks. They have carved out a market niche for themselves of people who want an alternative to the standard liberal Obama cheerleading squad.

    My suggestion is that they do this with more skill than the obvious bias in the article I presented.

    You mean Bush's failures disappear from the world stage. As anyone knows it's much easier to lose someone's trust then it is to gain it and much more difficult to gain it back after losing it.

    You need a solid plan to catapult the US back to the international political level we once held. Obama, sadly, doesn't have this plan.

    Wrong, we have the Messiah of Liberalism in power now. He will deliver us, but his current attempts have failed. Countries around the world hailed his election. That should automatically have catapulted us into a fresh start.

    No, this is a common misunderstanding with both Obamaphiles and people that call him 'Messiah'. His election shows progress is being made to move back to a position of authority and respect. Obama's election doesn't wipe the slate clean in any fashion. Only his actions can do that. Though, to his discredit, he hasn't performed any actions so far.

    Really? Considering Brazil is the largest economy in South America this seems hard to believe.

    Oh I see so how much longer before we can stop blaming Bush? Let me guess, in 8 years if a Republican is elected we can blame him, otherwise it remains Bush.
