"It's the most disgusting failure of people in our business since the Iraq war," Halperin said. "It was extreme bias, extreme pro-Obama coverage."

Big Government told Big Business, that he's our man, and they already knew that the disgraced Republican Party was on it's way out!!!

Anyone looking through open-minded non-politically motivated eyes, can clearly see a manipulated grooming, and positioning taking place within Campaign 2008!

The only real question left, is what is this political puppet's function, and why???

We shall know by experience, and this should be revealed in 4-6 months by his very actions ---

Through direct experience, shall we only know.

I am praying Robert, that this answer isn't what it feels and looks like, and I have faith that the people will demand change, no matter what happens. Noted and thank you.

Dar D.; If true change is 'not' delivered to the American people in a timely fashion, and with the US/Global Economic Emergency underway, then I can foresee the possibility of a breakdown of an already angry/docile public.

This could translate into an explosive inverse reaction:

------ A NEW AMERICAN CIVIL WAR! ------

It happened before, and it can happen again.

Abraham Lincoln knew the sorrows of war of the worst kind!!!

Easy for him to say, I didn't see him jumping in and decrying the coverage. He did his job the way the bosses wanted it done. So did Halperin for that matter. If they wanted to really report on the news, they wouldn't be working for Time/ABC. They'd be working for the Free Press or some other non corporate entity. A little late to be complaining now, isn't it? Safer for their jobs too!

the public didn't get to hear ANYTHING about A SINGLE 3rd party candidate...as far as MSM was concerned the people ONLY had 2 choices...and neither one was good for America...the lesser of two evils IS STILL EVIL PEOPLE
THERE IS NO CHANGE....WE GET THE CLINTONS BACK AND THE CFR MORE THAN EVER...THE CHANGE COMING IS NOT A GOOD ONE

Granted that the more progressive option, becomes capitalisms second string team,when the first choice option is ailing.In this case the powers that be,would have been happy with either Reps or Dems..but could live with the dems.thats why the attacks on Obama were limmitted ,though I rebutt the notion of press bias towards Obama-the reps scream bias when they dont get it all they're own way.
Big business does all it can,to neuter that ostensibly radical alternative,so that it is less threatening.With the dems,it rarely takes too much effort to neuter them.
At the moment Obama,Bush ,Brown,Sarkozy are going around desperately planning and acting to try and save a system that is on its knees.Why?because they fear the financial losses that would come from a complete collapse of the entire system.
Whichever way you slice it,its not our system,its not democratic,andthe whole rotten ,corporate run economy needs really shaking up.
Ultimatrely radicals backed Obama,partially because there was a far worse alternative to an a dems victory.The Repugnants,were hellbent on taking America into a quasi fascist-theoocratic nightmare,from which there may have been no return..plus US foreign policy affects us all.That is why progressives around the world,rejoiced at Obama's victory.
Radicals are left with two alternatives at the moment: 1)allow a complete collapse of a rotten infrastructure,with all its ensuing pain for the masses,but with the possible (not probable),thought that something better will replace it..or 2)support a reformist candidate ,who could ameliorate the worst aspects of rottenness,and bring about piecemeal but positive changes which benefits the working and middle classes
I go for the second option,as the least worst,but I never give my government unconditional support.Lets not let any government off the hook,be they Democrats,labour or social democrats-they are there to represent us,and not there merely as the puppets of big business.
