Even Fox News Thinks Obama Is Winning

The fair and balanced channel just polled a random sampling of voters, and the results seem fair and balanced!

In fact, Obama got 49% of the votes, as opposed to only 40% for Mitt Romney.

This is the President's biggest lead over Romney since the latter became his opponent, and it's easy to see what's behind the shift.

The Republican wannabe made more faux pas overseas than when Mr. Magoo confused a bullring in Mexico for a U.S. highway.

And there was that mess about his not wanting to providing too many tax returns, which raised enough red flags to make us all feel like IRS auditors.

Plus there's a growing feeling that's he's "phony", "out of it", and "only cares about rich people".

Add to that the fact that Obama wisely went on the offensive, blasting Romney's gaffes in a lavish ad campaign, and the result was as inevitable as the implosion of Sarah Palin's career four years ago.

As a result, Obama's getting a larger margin of support from independents than before, not to mention a bump from women, blacks, and Democrats.

It must pain Fox News to have to pass on the fact that their man is slipping in the public's imagination like so much gel through a shower grate.

What are they gonna tell us next--that the war in Iraq was a fake?


Thanks to Rex Wockner for the tip.

Mittens is making John McCain look good, (and don't forget, when he, John, ultimately kicks the bucket, may he some day RIP) we would've had a President Palin -- you cannot imagine the mightmares I had from that thought!

McCain sabotaged his own shot at becoming the POTUS when he enlisted the cheerleader as his running mate.

McCain was ten times more worthy of being the POTUS than Bush and Romney combined.

I still think the Repukes dont want to be held accountable for the mess we are in so they keep parading these losers out as candidates.

The lowering of expectations before the debates has begun.

The religious right is starting to worry a Mormon president could be the Antichrist.

I think they want to wain, but they can stir up more bile this way. Making Romney the underdog will get the rabble all riled up and get them to vote, plus the sense of antagonism will be good for Fox's ratings.

The Republicans dont want to win, if they did they would put a viable candidate up front .

the country is in the toilet and they do NOT want to deal with the mess.

Romney is not a viable candidate.

PS: Love the Mr Magoo connection--though HE was at least well intentioned.

I wonder what the statistics REALLY are. Probably more like 59%.
