    Oh and for the record it was the Dems who came up with and passed The Patriots Act, Go to War in Iraq and spend the so-called Clinton Surplus.

    And futher more Our national Debt is ~12 Trillion dollars, of which 9.2 TRILLION (~3/40 was BORROWED in the years that DEMOCRATS controlled BOTH houses.

    When Republicans Controlled both houses 1995-2000,2003-2006. Borrowed only 1.2 Trillion or about 1/10th.

    the Republicans had 4 balanced or suplus Budgets in 4 CONSECUTIVE years, the ONLY TIME in our 233 year history.

    The Democrats balanced the Budget in 1969.

    So which party is more FISCALLY responsible. the Party that has balanced and given us surpluses 4 consectutive years.

    So shall we try this once again.
    I'm bumping my post to GD so the rest of you Left can re-read it and thne come back and explain who was incharge again and who did what.

    Please offer proof for this assertion. I'll just make some lunch and await your fascinating reply.

    Now remember, we're all waiting for empirical evidence, no silly rants, blather-filled opinion pieces or embarrassing references that confuse commentary programming with news programming.

    OK . . . GO!

    How many times has this been asked this week, for someone on the left to back up their accusations? I'll tell you how many times... The exact number of times it has been ignored.

    I wouldn't hold your breath waiting.

    No, they are watching Fox News b/c they hate Fox News, I'd imagine. I don't think they purport to be a general media watchdog group (I hope not, cuz they're not).

    PS ~ Sorry Dr Pat, I answered your original question incorrectly. I 'read' your question with an extra word in it that wasn't really there. I thought you said, "So you really think ... ".

    I was trying to say that of course I don't think they don't have an agenda.

    Ehrr, that still sounds confusing. I meant to say that I know that NewsHounds has an agenda.

    Ignore Fox Obama's right. It's time to stop ...

    Ignore Fox
    Obama's right. It's time to stop taking the network's skewed news seriously.
    By Jacob WeisbergUpdated Saturday, Oct. 17, 2009, at 7:10 AM ET



    Last week, when White House communications director Anita Dunn charged the Fox News Channel with right-wing bias, Fox responded the way it always does. It denied the accusation with a straight face while proceeding to confirm it with its coverage.

    Take a look at Fox's own Web story on the episode...

    (snip ... ) Let's do a quick study of our own. Five people are quoted in this article. Two of them work for Fox. All of them assert that administration officials are either wrong in substance or politically foolish to criticize the network. No one is cited supporting Dunn's criticisms or saying that it could make sense, morally or politically, for Obama to challenge the network's power. It's a textbook example of a biased news story.

    more ...

    Obama's right. It's time to stop taking Fox's skewed news seriously. - By Jacob Weisberg - Slate Magazine

    Exactly so. Further down the article, the author says, "Any news organization that took its responsibilities seriously would take pains to cover presidential criticism fairly. It would regard doing so as itself a test of integrity and take pains not to load the dice in its own favor."

    But Fox does not take it's responsibilities w/ regard to news seriously. Of course they loaded the dice in their own favor. That is their business model.

    Well unlike my liberal friends I spend literally hours each night researching what I've "learned" from the "news" each day.. I prove FOX's integrity for myself daily.. maybe you should do the same and not expect others to prove what you haven't the will to discover on your own! You MIGHT have a different perspective of your beloved Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews. If you did, you would know the truth instead of hiding from it and degrading those that do seek it!

    This liberal tactic has grown quite old, maybe you should re-read your talking points and come up with something fresh!
