    My observation and opinion about the medias campaign coverage.

    At the very beginning of the presidential campaigning for the Republican side of the ticket, Ms Bachman was the frontrunner.
    Media reports (and I use that term loosely) and liberal posters on political websites were full of negative stories about her.
    She fell in ratings.

    Next came Mr Perry as the frontrunner.
    Media reports (and I use that term loosely) and liberal posters on political websites were full of negative stories about him.

    Next came Mr Cain as the frontrunner.
    Media reports (and I use that term loosely) and liberal posters on political websites were full of negative stories about him.

    Now comes Mr Gingrich.
    Media reports (and I use that term loosely) and liberal posters on political websites are starting to push negative stories about him.

    These are the same people that failed to discover John Edwards affair.
    These are the same people that pooh-poohed Mr Obama's affiliation with Bill Ayers.
    These are the same people that excused Mr Clinton for lying under oath because it was about sex.
    These are the same people that questioned Ms Clinton's ability to lead because she cried.
    These are the same people that said Ms Palin was too inexperienced to be vice-president but that Mr Obama was experienced enough to be president.

    :clap: :clap: :clap:

    Some of the negative coverage of our side was justified.

    The 2008 "coverage" of the left was indefensible.

    If you say so.

    Sheep usually do.

    As painful as it does to watch sheep lead.

    As your OP proves, Conservatives have no power in the Republican party. It is liberals who are calling the shots. All we do is stick a camera in their face and let them make fools of themselves

    Worked with Trump
    Worked with Bachmann
    Worked with Pailin
    Worked with Cain

    And boy, did it ever work with Perry

    The LSM was and is in the tank for Barry boy.

    Anyone who thinks the GOP is going to get fair treatment by the LSM is living in lalaland.

    One wonders what they many have dug up on Barry boy if they had tried??

    I agree....the LSM is out to get you

    My theory is that they rig the telepromters to force Republicans to say stupid things

    I'm really sorry Cain's skeletons didn't come out of the closet until he was the Republican candidate.

    Why do you think that is? You guys aren't all that bright, are you?

    Oh... I know... you'll sit there and blame Liberals. But the truth is, there are what 6-7 Candidates vying for the same nomination? Yeah... it's the liberals that are digging up the dirt... wake up.

    Sure... when they find dirt, they go public with it. That's not the fault of the Media... they are just reporting news.
