There is a reason foxnews is number one in the ratings, and continuing to go up too. Now, I know the question will likely come up of why then do we come here. Simple, keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer. @KM

One, she's distinctly moderate on most issues, arguably to the left of Romney on some of them. Two, she's brings the most cred on foreign policy issues, and that's not at all what this election will be about. (It's the economy, stupid.) Three, Romney's campaign has already been subtly selling him as a dorky business nerd who may not be inspriing but knows how to fix the economy, so the missing piece is an appealing, inspiring speaker. Four, I suspect Romney's handlers are looking for someone bland, not someone who will overshadow him. On the other hand, she's Southern. That's a big plus. She's a woman. Another big plus. She's a minority. That may not add many minority votes but it won't lose any, and it will delight a lot of the party base. And her intellect dwarfs those of Romney, Obama and Biden combined. Romney could do worse. But I predict he *will* do worse. I think she’d be a fantastic VP -Hell, she’d be a fantastic president- but I don’t think she energizes the party’s base.

Posted by: hopesprings52 | July 13, 2012, 12:58 pm 12:58 pm ABC News runs Obama ads throughout their news site! Again, academic studies have shown that Drudge links are MAINSTREAM or LEFT OF CENTER. He links to left-wing news sources like the Huffington Post! Do you honestly think the New York Times provides you with a balanced selection of stories? LOL! They cherry pick and bury news all the time. They didn't even break the story on Van Jones that forced him to resign (even though they had the information). Glenn Beck had to. The NYT Managing Editor Jill Abramson later said the paper's coverage of the Van Jones controversy was a "beat behind." Yeah, as if the NYT has fewer resources than Glenn Beck does. You have your head in the sand and are being manipulated. Open your eyes. As for Fox News, go to their website's front page and debunk one story. Just one. You can't. Drudge runs GOP ads right at the top of his page.

And then he selectively chooses stories from a variety of media outlets - choosing the stories that highlight his Obama bashing. Everybody can see that Drudge pushes news angles based on his orientation and agenda- he is influential, but he is not a balanced, objective journalist. He either likes candidates or hates them. That's why he is is so heavily courted. He is not balanced in any shape or form. If you want the Drudge agenda, read the Drudge report. But don't expect to see a balanced selection of stories.
