Morning, all - it looks like the Freeperati are still in serious denial re: believing the messaging is faulty, rather then the product.

REPORT: Fox News Is Taking Karl Rove Off The Air (Over election night meltdown) Business Insider ^ | 12/04/2012 | Grace Wyler

New York's Gabriel Sherman reports that Fox News is scaling back airtime for Republican pundit Karl Rove, in what appears to be a reprimand for Rove's meltdown during the network's live election broadcast.
Sources told Sherman that Fox News chief Roger Ailes has ordered his staff to bench Rove and his fellow GOP pundit Dick Morris, two of the network's most vocal partisan voices whose predictions turned out to be spectacularly wrong. According to Sherman, producers must now get permission before booking Rove or Morris on Fox shows.
The move comes as Fox takes steps to rehab its image in the wake of Republican defeats this November. Rove, in particular, has been widely mocked by members of both parties, both for his onscreen tantrum and for the abysmal performance of his American Crossroads super PAC.
And the studio set gained 1500 feet in altitude after the weight was released.
In Texas don’t they call a guy like that a piss ant?
he can go into hiding with Mittens
and please take W with you
How was Rove supposed to know that the commie ‘RATS would take their voter fraud to such a massive level? It’s not Rove’s fault.
Sure there was -some- fraud, but not massive fraud as you suggest.
The stupid party just got its ass aboslutely kicked.
They should have pulled him after what he did to Christine O’Donnell on the night that she won her primary, and how he did everything he could to throw ice water on her momentum during that week.
He really went after the tea party that year and hurt us bad.29 posted on Tuesday, December 04, 2012 7:25:16 PM by ansel12 (The only Senate seat GOP pick up was the Palin endorsed Deb Fischer's successful run in Nebraska)..
You’re still blaming a SIXTEEN POINT LOSS on Rove?
He only dreams he was that powerful.
MAYBE a bad candidate like O’Donnell’s bad loss is the fault of the candidate. I realize that’s a completely insane, out there, crazy theory.
To: presently no screen name
No, we didn’t.
We lost because our politcal party ****ING SUCKS.
If it didn’t ****ING SUCK, then it would not stand for voter fraud occurring at all.
Whatever happened in 2012 happened as a direct result of the GOP ****ING SUCKING.
I’m not sure if I said that the GOP ****ING SUCKS enough, so let me just summarize by saying that the GOP ****ING SUCKS!
Pardon my French, I’m tired of being back stabbed by a party that ****ING SUCKS.
Republicans prepare for a comeback: ‘We can’t come off as a bunch of angry white men’

Republicans prepare for a comeback: ‘We can’t come off as a bunch of angry white men’
By Chris Moody, Yahoo! News
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Republican National Committee members gathered here to re-elect Chairman Reince Priebus for a second term. But by week's end, that vote seemed secondary to the question of the party's long term survival.
After three months of denial, anger, despair and depression over the results of a bruising national election that gave Democrats an edge in Congress and kept President Barack Obama in the White House, Republicans know they must adapt if they are to move forward.
They acknowledge that it's time for a serious gut check. (Or as Haley Barbour put it in November, a "proctology exam.")
Whatever bodily metaphor you choose, the fact remains that the election so jolted and shocked the party that it is taking real steps to change.
And change they will! As soon as they figure out how.
While Republicans in Virginia and other battleground states launched an effort this week to alter electoral college rules so that votes are doled out proportionately--which would likely give the GOP at least a short term edge--GOP leaders here discussed their party's own shortcomings and sought areas of internal improvement.Almost every conversation in the bar of the Charlotte Westin Hotel this week involved a discussion about what the party must do to win the next elections. Floating through the air is a desire to re-capture glorious days of the past, a challenge made difficult by a country that refuses to stand still. Demographics are changing, minorities are growing in political influence and views on social issues like gay marriage are drifting rapidly leftward. Something's got to give.
Well I AM an angry old white guy!
Having a black RNC Chairman didn’t make a damn bit of difference.
The blah people saw through our clever ruse! Curse them!
The only answer is to effectively answer them and start throwing it right back at them. This is war, but the Republicans don’t seem to realize that they are in one.

Instead, try to come off as a bunch of angry AMERICANS. What a bunch of wimps! Where's the fire in your belly! Stop using libtard terms!
Where in the hell did you get the idea that the Republicans consist of only "white men"? Dammit!
Let me research that one some more and get back to ya, OK?To: Sub-DriverIOW, "let's triangulate and capitulate to the "democracy" mob for the win".

Colin Powell Slams ‘Idiot Presentations’ by Some Republicans, Urges GOP Leaders to ‘Speak Out’
In an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos during ABC’s special inauguration day coverage this morning, former Secretary of State Colin Powell lashed out at people in the Republican Party who spent the last four years spreading “birther nonsense” and other “things that demonize the president,” calling on GOP leaders to denounce such talk — publicly.
“Republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president. I mean, why aren’t Republican leaders shouting out about all this birther nonsense and all these other things? They should speak out. This is the kind of intolerance that I’ve been talking about where these idiot presentations continue to be made and you don’t see the senior leadership of the party say, ‘No, that’s wrong.’ In fact, sometimes by not speaking out, they’re encouraging it. And the base keeps buying the stuff.“And it’s killing the base of the party. I mean, 26 percent favorability rating for the party right now. It ought to be telling them something. So, instead of attacking me or whoever speaks like I do, look in the mirror and realize, ‘How are we going to win the next election?”
So Colon Bowel sees no problem that all of Obastard’s records are sealed?
Suspect that he’s auditioning to be msnbc’s second al sharpton...
Colin Powell looked into himself and asked: “m I American or Black?”
He not only decided that question needed to be asked (it doesn’t) he answered in the latter when he voted and now speacks 100% based on the latter.
Shut up Colin, you damn racist.
I just have two words for Colin Powelland the Fat basturd from NJ:
Mom Accused Of Pulling Out A Gun In Chuck E. Cheese's: "I'm A Very Good Person"
Hartford Courant ^ | February 5, 2013 | CHRISTINE DEMPSEY

NEWINGTON — A PTO mom who said she rediscovered God, conquered a crack cocaine addiction and pursued her dream of working with children was arrested Monday after she allegedly brandished a handgun at Chuck E. Cheese's.
According to police, Tawana Bourne argued with another woman at the children's restaurant on the Berlin Turnpike. Both women had children with them.
"During this argument, Bourne allegedly brandished a .380 semiautomatic handgun and chambered a round," police stated in a press release. She had a valid permit for the gun, they said.
Staff members called police and Bourne was charged with three counts of risk of injury to a minor and one count each of second-degree threatening and first-degree reckless endangerment. She posted $50,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Superior Court in New Britain on Feb. 19.
"I'm a very good person," Bourne said Tuesday. "Very, very involved in the community."
WTF is it with Chuck E Cheese and ghetto rats?
You can’t go a week without a riot, robber, assault and now this...
To: Mr. K
There’s a video out there of a ghetto mama getting her three year-old hood rat to go around CEC and pull wallets out of patrons purses when they weren’t looking.
One visit to my local mall is convincing me that it’s time to move...
Never trust a woman named Tawana - especially if she is with anyone whose name starts with Rev.
