    Not only did you fail miserably to prove they did any of those on purpose but you repated Sanford.

    Thanks for staying firmly in the far left wing looney bin.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    I repeated Sanford? No, Fox news repeated Sanford. If they choose to label him a democrat twice, then that counts as TWO. They don't get the luxary of getting away with it simply because they've done it before.

    Only two of those involve scandals. The other four show how easy it is to make an honest mistake. Don't get me wrong, Fox is obviously a Republican network, but your attempt to show it backfired.

    Four of those neither helped nor hurt anyone so why would anyone think that they were anything but honest mistakes? How do you know that no other networks have made these mistakes?

    That has to be the stupid post of the day, considering that you dems had a majority in both houses for over a year and could pass any damned piece of **** bill you wanted to...... It was really the constant interference of the dems on every single issue of significance.

    The U.S. defended itself forcefully against claims that it had neglected Europe.

    “Expectations were probably so high that they could not have been met when you looked at the European response to the election,” a senior official in the Administration said.

    The view from Washington is that communication with Europe on a range of crucial issues is difficult because the EU still lacks “a clear foreign policy apparatus.”
    I am so sick of Europe's institutions, governments and organizations behaving as if we exist to please or cater to them. Americans have been bleeding for near one hundred years over the course of an entire century to do what Europeans could not do for themselves. Two World Wars and a Cold War began in Europe and sucked Americans in, because their inability to behave in order to secure their region ultimately threatened our security. For ten years they have done their absolute best to keep out of danger in Afghanistan while pretending to be active participants and today the EU accuses us of neglecting them?

    We immediately jumped on Bail Out programs to dig ourselves and the world out of the economic melt down while European nations criticized our moves and their citizens mocked us and painted an ignorant picture of the "beginning of the end." Now that we are bouncing, we are supposed to rush to their aid? Perhaps they should have jumped on their crisis when we jumped on ours instead of investing so much energy being European. Instead, the EU, which merely caulks over the cracks between Europe's nations, argued over who to screw over and who to support. The friction between Germany, France and the rest was obvious in terms of economic direction (if not historically). They can't even get on the same page, but the U.S. is supposed to jump in and referee them or sort it out for them? Sound familiar?

    They feel slighted about global warming? Or any other thing? It's the same old crap. Their feelings are hurt because we haven't given them their proper attention or made them feel important. Can they blame us? They sat out an entire Cold War and still have problems figuring out that the party is over. We make them equal partners in the Iran/nuclear issue and they have performed miserably. We pathetically seek to label every action in Afghanistan a "NATO" action to include them even though it should be labeled an American/British/Canadian action (or simply an English speaking nation action).

    Europe's governments want so badly to matter more than they do that they exaggerate American misteps and insist on being consulted on everything. So much so, that any decision made by America without their consent is seen as an insult or "neglect." Who the hell are they again? The great empires that brought such golden hits like Colonialism, World Wars, and national self-righteous indignation find themselves behind the power curve and in the dark? Too bad. Step up or shut the **** up. I guess President Obama isn't the European hero they imagined. From Clinton to Bush to Obama we have seen something in common in relation to Europe - the desire to make them self-reliant and secure so we can move on. This feeling of neglect is actually in reaction to the babysitter's time almost being up.

    MSNBC has a liberal bias, but they do not intentionally try to distort facts. This is well known and it is a mistake to assume that if one side of the political isel has a propaganda machine then the other must as well.
