YOU KNOW IT’S BAD WHEN EVEN FOX NEWS . . .
. . . calls the Republican VP nominee a liar.
. . . [T]o anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan’s [acceptance] speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech. On this measure, while it was Romney who ran the Olympics, Ryan earned the gold. . . .
I should note that while this was aired on Fox News, it was not the position of Fox News, but rather the comment of a liberal contributor to Fox News.

The views you espouse neglect to consider several fundamental key points, which I will outline in great detail (you may want to hire an intern to help you with the longer words): . . .
YOU KNOW ROMNEY-CARE WILL COST YOU MORE . . .
Quote of the Day
