    If this news pertained to Obama or Biden, the media would crucify them.

    Why do the Repugs get a pass?

    And the Republicans still complain that the media is slanted to the left.

    Criminy jickets, I hate politics. After the young Mom started to cry, I just started to tear up also. It is dreadful.

    But, I care about my future, so I have to have a cast iron stomach and deal.

    Where did I put those antacids??

    Obama re-election doomed??? What a bunch a malarkey!!!! Now, GOTV!

      If Sensata had been a Democratic scandal, Karma. However, the mainstream media would also have Limbaugh, MorningJoe, & FOX News egging them on, not to mention Repub supporters behind the candidate. Just in this post about Jake Tapper (for once) calling out Rmoney on his hypocritical and unpatriotic actions, what do we get? Several snarky, sarcastic comments about - not Rmoney, but Obama. (ex: "He deserves to lose"). Just a small suggestion to those who claim they don't want Rmoney to win & to MSNBC hosts - STOP WETTING THE BED everytime things get tough! If you step back for a minute, you'd realize that the president has had the job for 3.5 yrs, so he has an actual record which should be assessed. He also has policy positions w/ specifics. And let us not forget the state of the country when he got into office. So, yes factor in a debate performance too, but also consider the substance of both candidates' responses not just how many times they blinked or looked down, Bitches. Otherwise, we ALL deserve to have the Koch Brothers choose who's elected.

      There is no such thing as the "liberal media".

      Fox, WSJ, Fortune, Radio, etc are conservative.  There are many conservative blogs.  The Pundits are pro-establishment and pro status-quo, and tend to be conservative in their sensibilities if not their politics.

      It is frustrating that this biased liberal media myth persists.
