From Jim Cramer to Newt Gingrich, here's the list from Foreign Policy.
Republicans, attack the media (even though they are privately owned businesses). then, they attack the polls, then they attack the integrity of the election. Stop shooting the messengers, and pay a little more attention to your message.
Gingrich didn't win the Florida primary, Romney did. Gingrich won South Carolina, which was the week before.
It's not easy for any of us to think past our own prejudices; but analysts are supposedly paid to do so. There are no true analysts on Fox, it appears.
Watching the talking heads at Fox before the election was humorous because they were making side bets and saying Romney was going to go over 320 electoral votes. Me knowing none of this was going to be true thought it was hilarious and whatching them after the election pout if even more entertaining especially whatching the ones who made side bets having to pay up.
It always amuses me when conservatives complain about the liberal bias in the "lame-stream" media. If anything, the coverage of the race in the final weeks was biased toward giving Romney too much credit. As the race tightened it made a much better story, so the media emphasized Romney's chances of winning. Turns out it wasn't really that close, but saying that wouldn't have been as good a story.
The 10 dumbest election predictions. Local ones as well. All the people that were predicting the voter ID amendment would pass by 80%.
" All the people that were predicting the voter ID amendment would pass by 80%." .... and the conservative commenters here saying Romney would take MN and win in a landslide. I haven't seen them around since the election. They've probably changed their handle.
jimdog - [The 10 dumbest election predictions. Local ones as well. All the people that were predicting the voter ID amendment would pass by 80%.] *** Very true, I didn't think that people would use outright lies (like Military IDs not being allowed) to attack the Voter ID amendment. I also didn't assume that Voter ID would be turned into a partisan issue where the Democrat sheep would blindly do as their masters commanded. Very sad indeed.
"Watching the talking heads at Fox before the election was humorous because they were making side bets and saying Romney was going to go over 320 electoral votes."------What I found most entertaining is they started off the election coverage saying that Romney would win by a landslide, which would prove how unpopular the President is, then they decided it could end up in a 269-269 tie, which would still prove how unpopular the President is, then they said the President might win the electoral college, but definitely not the popular vote, so obviously he's a loser. Then when the popular vote turned, they started saying that he won by less than he won by the last time, so "see? we were right all along. no one likes him." Better than a sitcom.
"...I haven't seen them (conservatives) around since the election. They've probably changed their handle.">>>>> I've no knowledge of what other capitalists have been up to since the victory for the socialists, but I've been tied up transferring money to overseas banks and canceling domestic accounts - all still perfectly legal as I have the legal bills to keep it legal and winding down my fractional ownerships in several businesses. When I'm finished, I plan to partake in the new socialist govt programs and live comfortably on the redistributed income you and all he socialists are planning to provide me. Why work? Then when you run out of people with money to tax and there is nothing left to redistribute, I will relocate in order to have full access to the aforementioned bank accounts. I see no incentive or reason to continue to fight the socialists, its obvious you have more people supporting your beliefs so why not sign up and join with the masses at the govt. trough..l which I helped fund anyway.
