It so horrible that Obamcare is not covering a set of people that Republican governors could cover if they wanted to and that the Republicans fought a supreme court battle so they wouldn't have to be covered.

How horrible of Obama forcing Republicans to do all those things.

Among those who'd be left out of the party, Baier continued, were indigent folks in Republican-led states that had opted out of the Obama administration's Medicaid expansion. Such individuals faced a certain double jeopardy, in Baier's formulation: "For those people, they not only face the prospect of not having health insurance coverage despite Obamacare, but now they will have to pay a penalty because of it."

Even if true - EVEN IF - the failure to expand medicaid can hardly be blamed on Obama or Obamacare.

And yet he someone managed to never mention exactly who refused the expansions.

Therefore, I will just say it is all of them.

wouldn't it be funny if someone with ethics bought the channel and made them do corrections for every lie and misleading thing since they started back in the 90's?
it would take years but it would be some epic crow to be eaten.

They pile up faster than the corrections could be issued.  And the more important thing to note, is that even when you issue a retraction, the first impression left by the original statement is usually what sticks.

I truly do not understand why Fox News-only viewers aren't storming the White House with pitch forks and torches.  If you buy into this radical muslin socialist atheist nazi communist dictatorship nonsense why *aren't* you taking the government back by ammo box?

Outside of being a bunch of cowards, obviously.

When are Obama and the Democrats going to do the same?
 
2014-03-20 08:12:55 PM  
So, the new talking point will be that Obamacare still leaves millions uncovered? That'll be interesting for the GOP media arm to push.

What absolutely blows me away is that those people could still fit the idea of God into the Big Bang, they just have to attribute TBB itself to him, it's not really that hard to do. It means they can't be Young Earthers, but they've even been given an 'out' there when people say that "God time" is different than time for us.

All these opportunities for them to accept science and still reconcile it with their beliefs, but instead they fight like hell to rationalize a system that hasn't made sense for at least a hundred years...

That's what amazes me. I know plenty of Christians and Jews who have absolutely no problem with science. Simply put, they accept everything science says all the way back to the Big Bang, and then they add "And God made the Big Bang." Boom. Problem solved. Old earth, big bang, and creationism all reconciled with a single sentence. But apparently that's too complicated for these idiots. They'd rather take the word of some dude from the medieval period who calculated the time since creation based on what he thought the Bible said. I wonder how many YEC idiots don't realize the 4000 BCE date is from some dude, not from the Bible itself.
 
2014-03-20 08:45:51 PM  
Here's what I don't get. They refuse to accept that our universe could "spontaneously happen" but they insist that a being capable of creating our universe spontaneously happened.

Sure do: CBS interviewed Marian Carr Knox, a secretary at Ellington Air Force Base from 1956-1979 and Killian's assistant on the dates of the memos. Although Knox felt the memos reflected the truth about Bush's alleged service failures,[90] she also stated she did not type the memos, they were not written by Killian, and that she had no firsthand knowledge of Bush's time in the Guard.[92] Knox said, "The information in here was correct, but it was picked up from the real ones," she said. "I probably typed the information and somebody picked up the information some way or another."  The New York Times' headline, including the phrase "Fake but Accurate," became a widely used derisive comment from right-leaning critics of CBS.

S
o here you are, jjorsett, years later still parroting your right-wing talking points that you were told to believe.  But I appreciate the opportunity you've given to state once again, George W Bush deserted his unit during the Vietnam War - there is no evidence that he ever reported for duty with the Alabama National Guard and thus he deserted his unit.  Thanks, jjorsett, and keep up the good work.

Yeah, Bishop Ussher's timeline idea was one of the first things we learned about in my Anthropology class. It really helped explain where the problems with the YEC idea were. He more or less had to guess at times because the Bible was kind of vague, yet they still put so much stock in it.

The 6PM news hour on Fox is reliably hysterical. As of late they've taken a break from leading the show with Benghazi or Obamacare because of the missing plane, but it's usually concentrated derp.
