This just shows how bad people think the economy currently is. They aren't not willing unlike Billo-the clown Orielly, to assign responsibility to Obama for this destruction Bush left behind!

Looks like Change has been watching to much Olberman...him and the other 6 people who watch olberman always call O'reilly that....

I think O'reailly just laughs though since has like four times the viewers poor Olberman has!

Of course billo-the clown is better then nuts like coulter and limbaugh (the leader of the Gop.) But Bill0-the clown oreilly resume consists of devout support for the Iraq war,torture,racism (very clear racism), This is also why i believe good honest honorable people like Kieth Olbberman are a must to watch because they expose the lies of these right wing nutbags. Hannity is just disgraceful, i dont even wanna start with him!

@stillow you truly are a dumb mutt!

just because someone has more viewers, does not mean their right, does not mean they are expressing tolerance either. Oreilly, is a well-known goon, as letterman (who is not really a left wing guy) referred to him as. Listen to Olberman's arguments and whether they make sense= and yes they do make sense, if it wasn't for him this right wing Neo-Nazi at fox would get away with everything. Don't tell me that Fox is not a right wing propaganda organ that has cheer leaded some of the very disasters that face our country!

Seriously, you are the poster boy for the left wing kool aid drinker. Olberman an honest guy? Hahahahah! That guy is a spinmeister! I can't beelive you said olberman and honest in the same sentence.
O'Reilly is #1 because he appeals to the indy's who watch the news because he gets slammed from the right and the left.
Olberman is the face of the far fringle left and you kool aid drinkers just drink it up.
I miss the old liberals like Jimmy Carter...at least they could think for themselves, ya gotta try it man!

You right wing nuts make me sick. After 8 years of devastating the economy, killing hundreds of thousand abroad and thousands of our troops, water boarding when we actually prosecuted others for it: you can still show your face and complain. Fox news is one of the most dishonest news networks there is, and the republicans are the most corrupt political force in America. So before you comment on Obama clean your own closet, because come election time WE'LL CLEAN IT OUT FOR YOU!

Ahhh, blind ignorance, it must be nice being young again! i haven't been a registered R since Reagan left office.
I can tell your young by your comments and your admiration for Olberman, but if you wanted to see a mess try living thru the late 1970's under Carter. Higher unemployment, out of control inflation, insane intres rates and the country was stuck in a funk. Bush defeated the VP of a populat president and then won re election against a liberal senator. Slam him all you like, but he ran on conservative values....he turned out to be much more fiscally liberal and more moderate on soical issues....but conservatism still ins the day when it is applied and properly offered to the people.
By the way, only you and 6 others watch Olberman....because everyone knows you lose the debate and look foolish when you start name calling instead of debating the actual issues. that is why you regularly lose debates on this board and look foolish and childish to others. Opinions are great, from diverse sets of opinion comes solutions, but for those like you who decide to degrade the debat all I can say, is you are right at home on MSNBC.
Do not disturb the sleeping giant, you will not like the results on election day. Clinton leanred in 1994 not to go to far left and Congress switched. Obama with his hard move left will probably end up with a Clinton effect.

The mere fact that BillO tops the ratings doesnt mean he speaks the truth or makes more sense. For example I listen to conservative radio talkshows & FoxNews not b'coz they make sense but for comic relief. It's also true that conservatives tend to br very faithful to FoxNews. Many progressive & liberals like to blog more.

Have asked yourselve why Rush Limbaugh tops the ratings in talk radio but yet has a very low approval rating?

____________________

Stillow:

You can't beleive any polls on rush...they are done by media groups who would love to have his ratings.
O'reilly is regualrly #1 because most viewers realize he tells it how it is and speaks the truth, where an Olberman creates his facts and spins to turn his perception into reality. Oreilly and in fact most of fox news shows get more viewers than CNN and MSNBC combined....are you going to tell me more conservatives just watch the news? I don't think that is true, but despite the fringe left claims, fox while it leans very slightly right, is the most balanced media out there. MSNBC and CNN are overwhelmingly liberal. The fact Fox's #1 guy Oreilly is a known indy and most of his viewers are indy's.
Olberman and msnbc and even cnn now are really lowering the stnadard of news to name calling and frat house jokes. That is why there ratings are in the toilet.
You are correct though, liberals do blog more, that is why I am outnumbered here 5 to 1.
The problem with polling Rush is when you ask the people who do not like him, and then ask if they ever listened to him, they usually say no.
I like your comic relief comment...but for real comic releif you need to go more Olberman. Conservatism again, always wins the day when it is presented accurately. Bush ran on it and got elected twice, it turns out he is just Obama jr. on spending...and on social issues turne dout to be quite moderate with his open border policy amnesty stance.
As much as you liberals try, every poll out there shows people are more worried about out of control big g'ment than anythin else, eventually obama's pro big g'ment policies will not mesh wih the people's opposition to big g'ment and debt spending. Presidential honeymoons always end and just like the late 1970's, after 4 years of liberal social nonsense and weak foreign policy, the country shifts back to conservatism.

I listen to both Olbermann and BillO and I think Olbermann makes educated analysis compared to BillO. I don't really agree with Olbermann on a few social issues including same-sex marriage. However, I think he makes his point and defends it analytically.
I see many conservatives in the same light as fundamentalists. The only thing these fundamentalists want is for US to bully other countries because that's the only way they feel good about their country. Anybody who doesn't share the same belief is weak or has a weak foreign policy. I don't consider myself liberal or conservative. I'm a Christian. I believe in the existence of God, I believe in marriage as between a man and a woman. I don't believe in divorce in the Church except in situation of adultery or fornication or in situation where a believer marries an unbeliever and the unbeliever decides to leave the marriage. The I don't like abortion but don't care about other do with their lives. I don't hold strong views about marriage, abortion et al. I don't think people should have guns in their homes. I support stronger gun control. I believe the more your earn, the more you pay in taxes progressively. This is because the rich use more economic resources. Jesus Christ said "Let the strong bear some of the burden of the weak." I don't judge those outside the Church. I only judge those within. Notwithstanding, conservative tend not to make sense to me. In most cases their arguments are weak. Conservatives in the US are just like muslim fundermentals. That's why it's believed modern fundermentalism started in the US. The quest for national and unified religious hegemony has inspired violence of unimaginable and monumental proportions in recent history. Fundermentalist usualy believe in nativism, activism, racism, ethnic purity, etc. They seek displacement of secular nationalism by religious nationalism leading to violence. I believe in the separation of Church and State.

I don't also know what same-sex people want. I think at present nobody debars them from marrying "what" or "who" they wants to marry but to want us to call it "MARRIAGE," already defines as between a man and woman buggles my mind. Why not call it "civil union" and rather seek any benefits as pertains to what marriage people are granted as under the US constitution in terms of tax reliefs, wills, bequest, etc. The re-define marriage (as defined by My Lord Jesus Christ) in another way is what I cannot bring myself to accept.

Well it is a pitty that your view of conservatives is so warped, I suspect that comes from sources such as NBC news and most college campuses these days. Conservatives celebrate the uniquness of the individual and the worth of the individual.
We won't change one antohers mind, but I would urge you to correct your views as much of what you say is actually what liberals are guilty of. racism was clearly on display with Clinton vs. Obama, even Bill Clinton accused Obama of using the race card.
Abraham Lincoln, the father of the GOP beleived in the individual and in the purity and greatness of the individual which is why he suppoted the abolishment of slavery.
I am a social libertarian so I differ with you on gay marrage, to me anyone should be able to marry whom they want as long as it hurts no other person directly. People should also hav ethe right to own guns to protect themselves. If you look at the cities in America who have the toughest gun control laws, DC and Chicago for example, they are amongst the highest in violent crime and murder. Criminals will always obtain guns, to disarm law abiding citizens would be huge mistake.
Racism, fundamentalism and extreme activism is soley owned by the liberal movement.
The liberals and indeed the democrat party is the party of no, they are tryign to tell us which car we can drive, what tyep of light bulb you can use, what your thermastat should be set at...in cities like New york they are banning things like table salt from restaraunts, while conservatives beleive in the individuals ability for self rule, liberals beleive g'ment is better sutied to make the choices for you....they beleive g'ment must protect you from yourself
conservatism is all about personal liberty and freedom, liberalism is all about forfeiting your personal freedoms in exchange for entitlements from the g'ment.
While liberals dominate the media, education and entertainment, it is no wonder why that movement has grown stronger, the only real weapon the conservatives have...and actually have ever had is the desire for man to be free, free from g'ment control over there lives.
A progressive tax structure removes the desire to succeed and work harder, because human nature simply doesn't jive with it...no one will want to work harder and earn more if the g'ment just takes it from them to give to someone else who does not work as hard....that systemin the end will always collapse....eventually the majoirty realize they can receive benefits from the g'ment without producing.
conservative vs liberal really comes down to wheather you beelive in the ability of man to govern himself and support a g'ment as Lincoln spoke of, a g'ment for, by and of the people....or do you want a large centralized g'ment who governs your life for you and makes your decisions for you. A g'ment that promises to give you the bare needs of life in exchange for the forfeit of your personal liberty, personal self worth and personal ability to decide what is best for you.
Its my belief there will be another Reagan type revolution because hisotry always shows us that in each man is the desire for freedom, the freedom to persue your own happiness and make your own choices....eventually as the g'ment attempts toerode that, attempts to make people more dependent on them, people will will revolt.
however as mentioned above, liberals do own the media, education system and entertainment industry, so they have 3 very powerful allies....whereas conservatives have the power of the individual.
Sadly, there were really only two pure conservatives elected in recent memory, JFK and Ronald Reagan...both spoke of smaller g'ment and less budonsome taxes....
I assure you, if you think someone like olberman is honest and and has educated opinions, then you are a liberal.
The g'ment cannot legislate prosperity, the g'ment is the most corrupt entity in the world who will break your leg, then send you a cruch and tell you how great they are because you could not walk without them.
One of reagan's greatest lines were "As g'ment expands, liberty retracts" Since this country was founded on freedom and liberty, big g'ment is in direct opposition to our very existance...and eventually the sleeping giant will wake up and the power of the individual will triumph that of the intelectual elite who run DC.

There're many archetypes of conservatism. The following are some of them:
(1) Religious conservatives, usually Christian fundamentals. They believe in religious nationalism or hegemony & reject secular nationalism. (2) Social conservatives - Conservative on social issues bordering on abortion, gun controls, etc.
(3) Fiscal conservatives - These are those who believe in the so-called small govt, limited or no taxes. Ostensible claims individual rights & liberties.
(4) Libertarians - believe is personal liberties & individual rights w/out govtal controls. Together with fiscal conservatives, they're the most selfish. There're overlaps especially between libertarians & fiscal conservatives on many fronts.
(5) Other conservatives - These are those who don't fit in any of the other archetypes. They believe in nativism, racism, nationalism, social activism, etc. They tend to be paranoia.

Overall, most conservatives are a mixture of the above archetypes.

I'm inviting comments.

There is essentially only one type of liberlism.

Let the g'ment make your decisions for you and run your life for you. A small intelectual elite in DC is better suited to manage your life. Anything other than total dependence on g'ment is backward, selfish and misguided.
