The 2nd Battle of Gettysburg etc. etc.

    As we know now; McCain/Palin got slaughtered in PA. It wasn't even close. The media simply attributes to much power and too large of a vote to Independents. In reality, if we have a good candidate, Democrats can overwhelm both Republiccans and Independents put together. That was the real message of the election of 2008.
    Please tell me you work for the present administration.


    source

    ......Abramowitz said Democrats are likely to lose 15 House seats in the 2010 election, “and their losses could go as high as 30 to 40 seats,” considering political trends.

    According to a Gallup poll, Obama began his presidency with 68 percent approval. For September, that rating averaged 52 percent. This is probably a result of controversial foreign policy and health care reform.

    A Rasmussen Report poll shows Obama was at 62 percent in January 2009, and that approval dropped to 49 percent for September.

    Gallup reported that Obama has the second-lowest approval rating for September of his first term of any president since Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953. Former President Bill Clinton had the lowest, and his party suffered major losses in the 1994 midterm elections. Democrats lost eight seats in the Senate and 54 seats in the House, shifting both from a Democratic to a Republican majority.

    According to Gallup, Republicans trailed Democrats by 14 percent in party identification in 2008. Democrats now lead by only 5 percent.

    Some independents, who helped Obama win the election, have turned against him. According to a poll by the Wall Street Journal and NBC News, 46 percent of independents now disapprove of Obama while only 41 percent approve, compared to 49 percent and 38 percent, respectively, in July........

    The argument was that we would not know about ACORN without Fox. This is untrue.

    Nope!!! I'm not mistaken. Look at Election Day results in 06 and 08. As George Bush said: "we got thumped". People may not have indicated their party on the registration card but the results speak volumes about party membership. This country is leaning toward the left and will become increasing liberal as older generations of America pass on and are replaced by younger generation, more educated, less fearful of the world, and more tolerant of others.

    But you are right that the Republicans are dead. All the energy is going to be invested in the Democratic fight between the liberals and the blue dogs. Obama is the bridge between the two groups that make up the Democratic majority. My concern is the split of these two factions in 2016 when Obama cannot run for the presidency. Maybe we will have to enlist Michelle Obama to run in sweet 16 . What say you???

This crap is utter nonsense and I'm glad the WH called their butts out on the carpet. Now Fox will be under scrutiny for bias reporting. They will either conform to some degree of journalistic integrity or show the world their dirty underwear. This was a brilliant move by the WH.
    I think conformity is what the white house is looking for here. As far as journalistic integrity may I assume you mean this kind?

    EVAN THOMAS: Well, we were the good guys in 1984, it felt that way. It hasn't felt that way in recent years. So Obama's had, really, a different task We're seen too often as the bad guys. And he, he has a very different job from ... Reagan was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is - we are above that now. We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something, I mean in a way Obama's standing above the country, above above the world, he's sort of God.

    The Republicans are poised to win both gubernatorial elections this year, both of which are in states where Obama won in 2008. Things are looking grim for the Democrats in 2010, where they're poised to lose a bunch of seats.

    "dead" indeed!

    No, I don't work for the administration. Are you kidding!!! I would have smashed those soft-skulled pundits at Fox with a rhetorical baseball bat long time ago. They sit around all day debating amongst themselves without any opposing views. They are so anti-Obama that they criticized the bank bailout initiated by Bush but then attacked Obama for appointing a pay-czar to keep the bankers from stealing the money for themselves.

    I did represent the Obama campaign at polling places throughout PA on Election Day and I can tell you that all the hype about Independents is "much ado about nothing". An energized Democratic base can defeat Republicans and Independents by large numbers.

    Doesn't matter - everything gets around, eventually. It even got to the networks who wanted to stiffle it the most.

    Nope, I don't listen to any of them. I just look at the facts and make my own conclusions. I'm sorry if those conclusions worry you... wait, no I'm not.
