  1. Are you joking? We'd never elect a ginger. Canadians would, but we're better than that.
  2. I didn't say that. I said they have no credibility. Plenty of true stuff on Fox, it just happens to be everywhere else as well
  3. Yeah, sorry, Fox News has zero credibility these days. This is a decrease from "only a little" credibility before Obama took office.
  4. I watch CNN to see what Twitter thinks. And who Nancy Grace is convicting that night.
  5. Definitely agree on the Presidential books - I've been meaning to pick up W's eventually. And your Dick Morris comment is spot-on too. I still chuckle when I hear that if he makes a prediction, and you bet money against it, you could probably become filthy rich.
  6. A new Benghazi twist? http://security.blogs.cnn.com/2012/10/24/doubts-surface-over-e-mail-on-claim-of-responsibility-for-benghazi-attack/?hpt=hp_t3
  7. I like Politico for much of my news. Al-Jazeera English is pretty good too. I don't know if 538.com counts as news, but I'll always recomend it. In regards to political books, I got nothing for ya. It seems most books are theoretical and/or subjective, requiring folks to read as much as they can and try to form a moderated opinion. Edit - "Unbiased" news is a myth. Every writer has biases, so we should all be looking for "factual & accurate" news. Admittedly, it's just as difficult to find.
  8. Well, they said 24 hours later it was a terrorist attack. Honest question here (high-level security protocols and dissemination of information are fascinating to me): Given that they said within a day it's a terrorist attack, is it really necessary for them to give the entire public the who/how immediately? As you mentioned, at that point you're gathering intel and attempting to track down the people that did it - I'm not sure telling the world exactly who you're looking for is the smartest strategy if you can find them quickly. And, they found them quickly. Remember the news article abou
  9. Aren't there protocols to the whole "reporting terrorist attacks to the public" thing? Like getting confirmation, making sure survivors are safe, confidentiality, etc etc. 24 hours seems like pretty quick turnaround for the federal government
  10. Have you checked out his book? I'm only 60 pages through, but I've been really impressed thus far. Also learned he was a poker player, which I don't remember learning before.
  11. Presidential race not all that matters - Obama had 360+ EC votes (I think?), so that was a pretty tough one for anyone to screw up.
  12. Rasmussen? Lol, the only good record he has is that he consistently favors Republican candidates more than the actual results indicate.
  13. Democrats have always preferred the ground game, while Republicans like to use mailers and airwaves. I don't think anyone's ever knocked on my (or my friends') door in support of a Republican candidate, and my household is listed as moderate in the computer databases.
  14. The 3rd debate sucked. Really, really bad. It was awful. With that said, it still happened, and it appears to me that Romney did everything he could to destroy his campaign. He agreed with Obama's policies, then said he would continue them. I saw no difference between the two and don't understand how an undecided, uninformed voter could vote for Romney based on that debate. Please tell me why I'm wrong.
  15. When you say "a bottle" are we talking 750ml or 1.5l? Cuz....I'm definitely on the 1.5 train tonight and don't feel at all bad about it. Of course, I also don't work tomorrow.
  16. Is there a good place for US players to play since the Bush/Obama crackdown? Or do we need to keep waiting?
  17. World Net Daily - the most trusted source to bullshit you.
  18. Dude committed fraud by saying he lived in Arkansas. It's not on the campaign to check him, especially when his donation is $5 (you can make anonymous donations up to $50). I imagine the FEC will hop right on this. /sarcasm
  19. People that can afford it and choose not to buy it, yes. People that can't afford it, no. At least, that's the plan. Should take a few years to see how it actually plays out.
  20. It's tough to imagine him winning like that again now that Obama seems to have woken up. You're right though, if he can repeat the 1st performance he has a chance. In regards to Gallup, aren't they usually all over the place? I thought I remembered reading something that they're not so much biased as inaccurate.
