I'm a small and petty man, but I must admit that I relished watching Fox News last night.

It's people like these that keeps our nation divided. Too childish to accept the truth. Regardless of who wins, loser needs to be graceful, compliments and support the winner. If public faces like these can't keep good moral grounds, they need to leave the public broadcast. They'll have another chance in 4 years.

When the bills for the Obama debacle come due, it will be priceless to watch the looks on the faces of people who really thought everything was going to be given to them for free.

FOX has been so smug and self-assured throughout this campaign, i didn't mind watching their melt-down last night. their credibility has taken a huge body-blow.

Yes, there will be a lot of bipartisanship with Rover running things on the anarchoRepubs side of things. Seriously, how much can you compromise on limiting tax raises to only 2% of the population? And why is there absolutely no discussion of a meaningful tax on financial transactions--the ones that have brought us to the brink of financial chaos?

They will not accept this. Fox News will never accep it. They make more money by losing then winning. "Fox News, we distort, you divide". "Fox News, they're imbalanced".

Karl Rove will lead the GOP into being irrelevent in the future.

So, Fox News is conservative and its conservative guests expressed disappointment over Obama's re-election. Good work, Mr. Oremus.

"Ed Henry, reporting stone-faced from Obama headquarters as it erupts in jubiliation: "The crowd is near pandemonium now, despite the fact that employment is hovering near 8 percent."" Classic Fox News smear. I suppose had Romney won, there would have been buckets of tears at Republican Headquarters for that 7.9%.
