1. Poor Gretchen
Panties always in a wad.

Now, I know they are 100% manufactured, so I can't see why they'd publish a poll like that.

Theories:

1) They're trying to motivate Repub voters who have disengaged or who can't stomach Romney
2) They plan to report a steady drop in support for Obama, so it's all downhill for him
3) This poll report got through before the editors had a chance to 'fix' it

...2) They're trying to motivate Repub voters who have disengaged or who can't stomach Romney...

I think what we're watching is the Rethug establishment's worst nightmare.

Had all gone according to plan, Romney would be WAY out front by now despite being a Mormon. When people gravitated to Perry (most likely because they preferred a Chrtistian), Cain was dispatched to cannibalize his votes (without becoming a viable candidate himself). When Cain wouldn't back off after his mission had been accomplished, his mistresses materialized, and, as Tweety put it so beautifully (for once in his life) "Looks like it's Gingrich's turn to drive the clown car."

37. underneath the video window
there is a button labeled "share". That is what you copy and paste into the body of your message and it will direct the viewer to that video.

46. Embedding youtube vids
Yes, click the share icon, then embed. However, I'm not sure whether the new embed code, begins with iframe, or the old embed code, begins with <object) works here. So, this is a test only. I will use the old embed code.

<object width="560" height="315"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/lb4IZtujlZ4?version=3&hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/lb4IZtujlZ4?version=3&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

21. "Is anyone else STUNNED by this?"
Not anyone who lives in the real world, Gretchen

Just like no one thinks Fox News would report such a thing if, like in post #1 suggests, Fox wasn't gonna use it for manipulation.


It's probably actually higher than 44%.

36. Classic
Absolutely classic to see a RWer confronted by reality. They cannot imagine another 4 years of the black guy in office andthey've contructed an alternate reality where Obama isn't the favorite to win reelection.

Edited on Fri Dec-09-11 08:07 PM by Courtesy Flush
By all metrics, it's a really bad time to run as an incumbent. The GOP could have run a musk melon with a smiley face painted on it, and beat Obama. But they chose candidates with sub-melon intelligence.

20. YOu mean like the DOw going from 7500 to 12,000 since Obama took office?
That kind of metric?

OBL dead ... that kind of metric?

Auto industry saved ... that metric?

You might as well argue that Obama had to put out the fire but not get the house wet.

And that is the GOP's real problem ... Obama has actually gotten a great deal done, even as the GOP tries to block him at every turn.

Most of the American people see that ... and that's why he will be re-elected.

23. I want to add...
For months now its been clear that the GOP field is a bunch of nutters, all of them. Given that, there is simply no time left to raise a campaign staff and the money needed to move a better candidate in for the Repub-thug base to vote for. Isn't that a fantastic thing?

Another point is that the economy is improving slowly, maybe not as quickly as we prefer, but the repub-thugs were banking on it tanking so Our President would be cornered by the very bad situation. Well, is not tanking as badly as they had hoped and he is not backed into a corner.

The European financial crisis, now that is a real threat, but I feel it will not affect President Obama's reelection. Unfortunately it could make matters worse for all of us for quite a while.

Damn those frickin' banksters, we have to keep our eyes on the prize and stay awake from now on. We must regain our democracy and regulate those greedy, greasy crooks.

Reality hits her smack in the face and she is so "stunned" by this "amazing" result she can barely find the words to express her shock.

We can expect to see a lot more of this as the Reality Train comes into the station.

29. This is just more FOX Propaganda
This is just another form of FOX propaganda at work. This "poll" is going to be used to condition the voters into feeling that Obama is losing as FOX propaganda's "newer polls" are taken in the future. These newer "polls" will show Obama's support edging downward. This is a great propaganda tactic on the part of the FOX News' propaganda outfit.
Now when the GOP suddenly steals the voting machine results in NOV 2012 they will show the "polls" FOX has taken all year long as proof that the election was honest and Obama lost from loss of support over the year.

31. Did she really say that?
OMG. What the hell is wrong with her? Is she that clueless as to what is going on around her? Does she need to buy a vowel? How does she even her retain a job with comments like that? Stupid is as stupid does!!!

It's quite simple Gretchen. Just look at the facts. Ooops, I forgot, FAUX does not rely on facts. My bad. Nevermind Gretch.

1). There isn't one person in the GOP that is worth a sh!t. Makes me wonder which useless POS she is going to waste her vote on. I really don't care.
2). Look at the past 3 years on what this "so called inexperienced" president has done. You can search the web for Obama accomplishments" to prove it. And that doesn't even scratch the surface. He has done more for us than any presiding president in my lifetime. And look at the mess he was given.
3). The hatred from the right is unbelievable. And it's mostly because of the color of his skin. They want him out, at any/all costs. Screw America. Our priority is our party. Very sickening.

It's pretty obvious to me what's going to happen in 11 months.

DUH.

Wake up out of your make believe world Gretchen. This is reality and you are involved in a party of racist losers.

40. Was this a real poll or an online poll?
If it's a real poll, it's hilarious to see the shock on their faces as reality intrudes into the bubble. Most Fox News viewers are convinced that Obama is universally loathed and that a Republican victory is inevitable in 2012. I'd like to say they'll be in for a shock, but I'm not forgetting the Diebold factor.
