So much spin on everything.

I linked to a site that, although not perfect, is nonpartisan and attempts to point out the facts and the facts only - they aren't for or against anyone and they point out Obama's errors just as much as Republicans. Can't argue with that.

I didn't post a link to some left wing whack job liberal BS site - that would have made me no better than you. What I'm trying to do is work with facts.

You are trying to work with spin and lies. therein lies the difference.

oh yeah. cool. guess you can't really read and comprehend more than one thought at a time then aye?

You'll notice I'm not talking about politics, nor have I, like I know all about it. I stumbled in here while checking the forums on my tablet and really didn't realize I was posting into a political subforum. I was pretty quickly attacked and have been trying since to point out what i think is the level headed approach to all the stupid news stories and misinformation out there. That's all.

I'm simply trying to point out the stupidity of blindly following conservative or liberal web sites and news feeds - trying to move to facts.

If you see the post as ironic, so be it. I don't.

Yes according to Caleb, any information that he doesn't agree with is misinformation so please check with him for approval before posting a link or hell get his panties in a bunch and call you names and make excuses for his own ignorance. And he doesn't think he's a liberal, lol. Sure acts like one.

You are trying to work with spin and lies. therein lies the difference.
Just because its a conservative website doesn't mean it's spin and lies. Until you can categorically disprove anything in that article you are full of BS. You hate spin and lies and name right wing media and leave out MSNBC or CNN. What, genius, did their bias fly right over your head? We'd believe you were generally concerned about objectivity in the media if you actually had the balls to call out both sides, but since you didn't, you expose who you really are.

You want objectivity, even the cbo.gov analysis pokes holes in Obama's budget proposals. Try reading their entire analysis and see for yourself. I realize BO is your hero and all but you really need to wake up. I never said previous presidents were perfect, far from it, but Obama is clueless when it comes to the economy not to mention foreign policy. He's nothing more than a community agitator who gives speeches that appeal to the deranged liberal mind. Illinois is an example of how bad this type of politics can be. Broke and hopeless.

Oh boy, you guys are just too much for me to handle. I give up, you win. You're right about everything political. I'll get back in line and follow suit and start agreeing so you don't get personal again. Sorry Sir, my mistake. You have the inside picture and obviously know everything about everything, right. Ok, you win, I'm done on this thread. Let the whackjobs continue with their uneducated, biased, slanted opinions and links to websites that ONLY support their beliefs.

Carry on.

Pure curiosity, but what websites aren't biased in your opinion?

No win question there bud. No matter what I say, you or someone else will pick apart.

It comes down to opinion, however I try to base my opinion on what I beleive is the closest to fact.

Neither a liberal nor conservative website, or news channel or commentator or radio show host is in that mix. they provide pure entertainment for the masses, sure.

Foxnews, I assure you, is not one of them. Neither is CNN or MSNBC or any other TV news media.

Any site Caleb doesn't agree with is biased.

With all the record number of debates (20) that republican's had during the primaries Cain thinks Americans have an ignorance problem? His party needs to look within and he'll find where the ignorance is.

You mean the debates were Obama flat out lied? Ie, most transparent govt ever, you can keep your doctor, your taxes in the middle class won't go up, basically 70% of what flies out of his mouth. Not that the other side is that much better. But Obama getting a second term is the height of stupidity.
