I've moved on to women's undergarments--sunshine and roses, indeed!

That would be the drivel. Then, when there is real stuff, it is blurred into the background with the static and nobody can tell the difference because the whine level is constantly set at 11.

Is it possible [and this is just a guess here] that the majority of the media doesn't see the same negatives that the kids of the rightwing blogsphere?

We note, when those random stories come from you guys, they usually lack any real objective issue and usually result from "its not what was promised" then, when asked what was promised, we see "see post 12" which is useless in providing an accurate answer.

While nice, that still doesn't say what actual issues were promised that have not met guidelines or endpoints [sunshine being the singular exception so far].

Did you read the actual PEW study? If not I would recommend that you do before quoting a post that has linked it. It really only serves to show how absolutely transparent you are.

Lets face it.
Both parties screwed up. Those tea parties weren't right/left wing, they were pissed off individuals on both sides. Mostly those who agreed Both Parties are at fault, and neither has the drive or desire to fix the messes. The politicians make too much money in all of this to want "CHANGE". Notice, Obama has backed down on nearly ALL campaign promises. He is a "bought" politician, just like any other.

Get over the left/right thing, vote out all of the greedy bastards a nd we may stand a small chance.

I couldn't agree with you more, however, we need to keep in mind the complicity of the media.

What the hell McB, it's OK when you guys were beating on Bush, but when the tables are turned it's a no-no?

I think a good example might be "the Surge" not a man was moved from the US or any other base world wide and the leftist loonies here were screamin how it wouldn't work , and Harry Reid was telling all that would listen that "The war is lost..."

So, I have to ask when Bush hesitated in mid sentence it was a sign of how stupid he was, but when Owe Bama starts with his Um, um, it just shows he's the smartest President that ever lived?

The whine level may be set at 11, but it's coming from the left speaker, not the right.
