    Isn't Fox News reliant on the oldest demographic segment out of all the cable channels?

    •  Yeah (5+ / 0-)

      They are unquestionably the oldest news-viewing segment.

      But, these are the same people who voted for Romney/Ryan in record numbers, so they don't really care much if the safety net is gutted.    They already vote against their interests.    Gutting SNAP is just another part of it.

      •  They only voted for Romney/Ryan (1+ / 0-)

        Because they're racists and the other guy in the other party is black.  Can't wait to see what they're going to do when Hillary is our candidate.

          they'll do to her just what they did to her husband: accuse and demonize.   To the truly powerful, she is a Democrat (i.e., the enemy) - not the black enemy or the female enemy, but THE enemy, and color and gender are the traits that will be used to sell hatred and fear to their voters who think with lizard brains.  For those people, even a good ol' white Southern boy was tainted, and his wife will bring all that baggage and be even worse.

          •  I see your point (0+ / 0-)

            It's not the fact that Obama is black and Hillary is a woman, it's the fact that they're both Democrats and Republicons OWN the White House.  

            I do feel that that's only 1/2 the case with Obama, with the other 1/2 being the color of his skin.  I feel this way because I've heard the Republicons making comments that they would never have made if he was white.

      Republicans would be all over it.  They'd be driving the meals on wheels trucks like they were headed to a fire.
