Totally false. Probably reported on Fox News, right? ------------------------------------------------------------ This from the zealot who mindlessly cites MSNBC with nauseating frequency. At least Fox News has exponentially higher ratings. You probably think Rachel Maddow and Toure are credible.

I have never cited MSNBC, at any frequency level. Fox News has high ratings because there's a lot of dumb conservatives in America, people who gladly embrace ignorance, fear and hatred. It's sad but true.

Aura - Just admit yo hate America and want to work as hard as you can to destroy it.

Thats what you want isn't it?

OH, and I guess MSNBC's ratings are so low because only those smart Liberals watch it? Does that mean there aren't too many Smart Liberals?

Mensa Aura, it is clearly past your bedtime, because in addition to just posting stupid comments, you're starting to sound like a petulant child.

You're the one who hates America, you and RMoney. You hate people on social security and Medicare, even though they paid for it. You hate people on unemployment even though they paid into it and lost their jobs for no reason other than a bad economy. You hate war veterans, also part of the 47%, who served their country.

You are a loser and you know it. That hurts but you could work at not being a loser. Instead you watch Fox News, established to convince you that it's not YOU who is the loser, but everyone else.

Mensa Aura, you're the one who says anyone here not a Prog lives in a trailer, is racist, hates America, etc. You're the epitome of a spoiled little child who refuses to learn. Grow up indeed!
