Let the right embarass themselves once again, they are turning it into an artform.

Huckabee's not my first choice, but I highly doubt it'll take much to beat Obama next time around.

If you think it's going to be easy just remember Bush 04...

Things could happen between now and then, but it would be a massive upset if Obama doesn't get a second term.

I just think it's hilarious that Fox News was created to avenge George H. W. Bush's loss to Clinton, and all it currently is doing is rallying the ultra-right and driving the moderates from the party--a recipe for losing. If Huckabee is the best the GOP can do, Obama's numbers can slide a lot more before he has anything to worry about with reelection in 2012.

Not to mention, the criminal gerrymandering of our congressional districts will always favor incumbents, including whoever is President.

Palin/Bachman '12---The misogynist GOP MILF ticket.

Or maybe Fox saw a large unserved market of the middle-right to right...and a chance to draw a ton of viewers and make a lot of money. Guess what? They were correct!

Do you think MSNBC is drawing more moderates than Fox News?

I would think true moderates probably avoid the majority of both of their programs, that or watch both and make their own decisions.

I'd think that true moderates - on either side - are generally at the more intelligent end of the scale, and thus understand that just about everything from healthcare policy to foreign policy to economic policy are really, really complicated and sit well and truly in a grey area, not a simplified screaming black or white, with us or against us area, and so would like their news to come with at least a bit of news. Therefore, not watching Fox or MSNBC at all.

It’s Murdoch. Don’t forget he’s made his fortune off being both tabloid and cleverly reading/swinging with the political current. It’s not that obvious at all in the US, where the battle lines are more clearly drawn and firmly entrenched, but in the UK and Australia where there is a far, far, far larger swinging middle ground to manipulate or follow, he very, very obviously swings backwards and forwards as per the leading political climate of the day, or more to the point swings his media backwards and forwards in a way that influences the climate of the day in a direction that is most suitable for him financially.

He does definitely lean conservative personally, but his support and his media support swings wildly left and right, high and low, always depending on where the money is. I remember when Fox News first was broadcast here, tuning in and immediately noticing that the biggest joke was not the obvious conservative leanings or the dumbed down opinions and reporting wrapped up in big-bang entertainment visuals (Murdoch hallmarks), but the ‘Fair and Balanced’/’We Report, You Decide’ taglines, which I just could not believe anyone could buy into when it’s a Murdoch owned business. But, plenty did and still do, plenty actually seem to defend the channel based on those taglines.

Though let's be honest. The fact that there's even going to be an election in 2012 with the attempt to defeat the first black president is obviously nothing more than racism.

Fail

Fail as a joke in general.

And specifically fail asto the continuance of ignoring the fact that race is playing a factor, no matter how big or small... because if you completely ignore it, like you and so many others have for so long it will start to define your party.
