I AM!!! Jesus Christ, I can't believe how ridiculous this so called news channel is. I used to be able to watch it without going Office Space on fax machines but it is impossible now.

So they just reported that a Hillary Clinton write-in campaign was underway. I searched the 'nets couldn't find anything about it.
Why would people be writing Hillary Clinton in for the Dem. nom anyway? The one thing that I get from people  on the left who dislike Obama is his moderate views and corporate ties. Um HELLO, can we say Hillary! She's a great Sos but the notion that she may be replacing Joe Biden for VP has been thrown out the window by Debbie Wasserman Shultz & the Obama campaign.

Then they reported on Obama's speech where he said something to the effect of. Don't vote GOP because they aren't helping out minorities.(sorry I couldn't find the link, but if you turn on the TV right now you will can get the live coverage of this story) The guy who "broke" story, Eric Bolling, proceeded to demonize the President by calling him Barack instead of  President Obama. SERIOUSLY. WTF is up what that? I don't remember people calling Fmr. President Bush (see, even I write his appropriate name) George. He then turned to Bob Beckel and after Bob refuted the race baiting Bolling said, "his name is Barack isn't it, or would that be Barry, or Barry Sortero as he went by when he was a model?"
(This is an accurate depiction of what I looked like while watching FoxNews)

The GOP insists that it is Obama's policies that are the factors in their hatred of the guy. Then what the hell is the basis for these stupid personal attacks. I recall the Birther Movement using the name Barry Sortero instead of Barack Obama when referencing his birth in another country. Were they claiming he born in Kenya or was it Indonesia? I had a hard time keeping up with their bullshit.

Imagine how the right would feel if we started attacking their presumed front runner with personal attacks. For the most part, I see objection to Mitt Romney based on his Mormonism from the RIGHT not from the left. Last night Brian Williams had a show based on the Romney's that lived in Mexico. I thought the show was a very good look at the Romney family that was left behind. But was it an attack on Mormonism for doing the segment? No, it was quite favorable towards Mitt Romney and allowed for his cousins to show the quaintness of their lifestyle.

My theory is Fox News is freaking out. They know their guy is going to lose so they are upping the ante on their antics. No matter, Obama will spank Romney in the General Election and the GOP can slink back to Middle Earth from whence they came.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
