Not the point.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The hosts of MSNBC’s election coverage caught wind of the ongoing feud at Fox News Channel between Karl Rove and the network’s decision desk over the validity of calling Ohio for President Barack Obama. The hosts took to both mocking Fox’s anchors and questioning the politics of a major donor who backed Mitt Romney attempting to force his network to revisit their calling the election for the president.

“I don’t mean to cross-advertise here, but I want to note that conservative cable news network Fox News Channel – Fox News Channel called Ohio for Obama, but the on-air talent is refusing to concede that they believe it,” Rachel Maddow said.

“Karl Rove is describing this as being just like 2000 and it is not over,” Maddow added.

“Can you define that word ‘talent’ for the people who are not in this industry,” asked Chris Matthews. “They happen to have positions. It doesn’t say anything about their quality.”

“People who wear makeup and have cameras pointed at them,” Maddow replied.

After Chuck Todd explained why it was impossible for Mitt Romney to make up the vote he would need to carry the state, Maddow continued to lambaste Rove and Fox News Channel.

<span style="color: #000099">THE POINT</span>.

<span style='font-size: 20pt'>“What’s happening on the right is that one of the on-air contributors on the Fox News Channel is also one of the single largest outside contributors in favor of Mitt Romney, who is Karl Rove, who is now trying to get – on air – to rescind its call in Ohio in favor of the candidate that he has bankrolled to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars,” Maddow said. </span></div></div>

LMAO! It was really like a big bonus watching Fux ARgue with themselves last night! Hilarious!

Rachel always seems to know when to speak out, and block the Repig BS. Chris Mattews, same thing.

Get ready for the fall of the western world, and the end of the Judeo Christian tradition! LMAO!


Now I don't know for sure if this is true, but I heard there were a dozen bloodless corpses found on the street, where Ryan turned his limo around outside of the Repiglican location!!!!

OMG! He was really whipped from all that lyin'! Needed lots of blood to get through the night!

Perhaps you might link to a quote where he did that?

They had already called for Obama, he wanted them to take that back.


<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Shortly after 11 p.m. ET, even as the Fox News anchors Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier were adopting a resigned, downbeat stance, Rove attacked the network’s “decision desk” for calling Ohio with only 74 per cent of the returns in. Saying that he’d just gotten off the phone with the director of the Ohio for Romney campaign, who was frantically checking the website of the state’s secretary of state, Rove noted that, at that point, fewer than 1,000 votes seemed to separate the two presidential candidates. He enumerated some of the Republican-rich counties that had yet to file their results, and declared: “I’d be very cautious about intruding into this process.”

Responded Megyn Kelly: <span style='font-size: 26pt'>“Well, that’s awkward.”</span>

But Fox producers recognized that <span style='font-size: 17pt'>awkward TV can also be compelling TV,</span> so they sent Kelly out of the studio and through Fox’s warren of back offices to track down the network’s statistical gurus for an on-camera interview to explain their rationale for calling Ohio in Obama’s favour. (MSNBC had also called the state for the President; CNN followed moments after Fox’s call.)

She travelled so far from the set that she lost audio contact with her producers in the control room, who could no longer speak to her in her earpiece. But she got the key piece of information from one of the men who made the call. “There’s too much Obama vote that’s outstanding that we know is going to come in,” explained Arnon Mishkin.

<span style="color: #990000">Rove was not yet ready to back down. “I’m just raising the question of our responsibility to call these things when it appears to ordinary Americans that we are not leading the pack for the sake of leading the pack, but we’re calling it,” he said.</span>

Rove is not normally concerned with how others perceive him; his very presence on the most popular U.S. cable news network is an unusual one. The architect of George W. Bush’s two electoral wins, he is also founder of two of the largest outside groups to play a role in the 2012 election: the super PAC American Crossroads,and Crossroads GPS, a non-profit advocacy organization, together spent more than $300-million supporting Republican candidates.

Asked by the anchor Chris Wallace if the money had been well spent, considering Mitt Romney’s loss, Rove responded: <span style='font-size: 26pt'>“Yea. Look, if groups like Crossroads were not active, this race would have been over a long time ago.”</span></div></div>

Says it all.

Guess they couldn't believe their plans to throw the election, didn't work!

The president won an overwhelming mandate, Democrats had big wins, as did their policies, across this country.

And it's obvious that Democratic policies are the direction this country is choosing.

Media Pundits, from the right, and the left, are all over the television, talking about how the Republican brand, their economics, their social ideologies, and demographics, have smashed the REpublican Party, and they are all heading down the drink, unless they change their ways, and how this election, proves it.

And in the face of all of that proof, Boehner, McConnell, and of course, idiot Mourning Joe the Nose, and Fux Noise, are all out there saying they won the mandate!

Unbelieveble denial!
