As an outside observer, I consider it obvious that the only way for the Republican party to survive, over the long term, is to moderate their policies and to govern for all Americans, not just the 1%. It appears evident that they are not willing to do so, given the the stance of Fox, aka Faux Noise, the Republican Ministry of Propaganda.

Hello reality....we need to bless those who have made a fortune dissembling American manufacturing in favor of shipping jobs to China? I think I just might take a pass on that. One thing is mathematically consistent, reduced taxes do not produce jobs. Fox may have helped to promote this new entry of "job creators" into the lexicon, that does not make it real, or true.

It appears that Faux Noise didn't get the memo about an election being decided last week. If all those facing reelection in 2014 don't start cooperating they will be going the way of Romney. The noise channel is not only doing a disservice to the American people, but to those they are trying to keep in power. It's an exercise in futility!

"“blessed by the efforts of the relatively few. (The) one percent.”

+++++++++++++++ What a blindly INANE, ignorant and irrelevant remark! Figures, doesn't it?

If the sold called Job Creators were creating all these jobs where are the jobs from these tax cuts we've been living with? I can understand why the public in the beginning might of bought this hook line and sinker but after we've got history under our belt that proves otherwise. Give me a break.

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but ONLY if they're FAUX News watchers!;) The only thing worth watching on FOX is the Simpsons! And They're more Realistic!:)

Faux news is full of bull once again. Maybe in a Republican utopia, the rich are the hard working, virtuous angels that save the country from the liberal evildoings of their archenemies the 99%. The reality is that the 1% are almost exclusively responsible for 99% of the suffering and misery in this country.

Since Rupert Murdoch owns Faux...I think I'd like to see the investigation of his violations of US law lead to a forced divestment of both WSJ and Faux...Do you all think C2 would run with a petition like that?

The talking heads at FOX keep saying we're out to get rich people because we just want "stuff". I'm not sure I hate rich people, but I certainly want stuff. Lots of stuff. I want the entitlements I've spent my whole life pre-paying: Social Security and Medicare. I want my kids to have jobs so they can support their families. I want my grandkids to get a good education without incurring a debt they won't be able to pay off until they're my age. I want my daughters-in-law to get paid as much as the guys they work with. I want to vote without fearing my ballot will end up in the trash because I didn't vote for the right candidate. i want those idiots at FOX to stop pretending that global warming doesn't exist and that Obama won the election by suppressing Republican votes. Most of all, right now, after reading all this crap, I think I want a drink.

What else can one expect. Since Sept 14, 2012 the Senate Repugs managed to quash the Congressional Research Service Report; "Taxes and the Economy: An Economic analysis of the Top Tax Rates since 1945.", Thomas L. Hungerford. And God do they hate this report, it proves that not only is there no relationship between lowering the Top Tax Rates and Job Creation but the opposite is actually true, more Jobs are created when the Top Tax Rate is raised, the Clinton Administration. What the hell else can one expect, the Repugs and their Morons of Media have spent so much time in their echo chamber that the lies that they foist off on to the American Public have become their reality, they now believe the shit they shovel to be the facts.

I think that only those who are willing to support the views of the Fox News network are invited to appear as guests, and that's one of the many reasons why Fox News is such a joke. A few other reasons include Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Mike Huckabee, Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin, Karl Rove, etc.

The right sure has their knickers in a twist since the election! And here I wondered what you'd be able to blog on after the election. I needn't have worried!

I find it offensive that Faux Noise even considers itself part of the Fourth Estate, let alone qualified to intelligently articulate and disseminate any information beyond Homer Simpson's shorts size. They are clearly the propaganda wing of the Republican/Teabaggers. I am sooooooooooooooo glad that they are not allowed to broadcast in Canada!

Thanks everyone. Kudos to Snuffy. I'm rushing today.

I'm with snuffy and think the real 1 % we should be concerned about is our veterans. That's about how many of us serve.

I should add that after over 20 years of service we and many others live just above the poverty zone and have health care that doesn't come close to that given other government employees and the Congress. And, they want to make that more expensive!

...oops didn't finish my last comment....yesterday heard Applebees CEO telling how much the $2K per year fee for not insuring employees would keep him from hiring, etc.......he could take a smaller salary....or just admit he wants universal government paid health insurance since it is obviously a lot more than $2k per year to insure his employees....

"Despite the fact that the election could be seen as a referendum on Americans’ support for the middle class, Fox has spent the days since then waging class warfare in an effort to paint Obama voters as welfare queens just looking for more stuff."

Well, really, did anyone seriously expect a Rupert Murdoch entity to suddenly see the light? This is what they have always been, noisy shills for the zealots of the reich wing. The rich are always right and everyone else should be on their knees in gratitude for the largesse of the rich without which our country would cease to exist. Yup. Well, considering the pace of the Atlantic ocean's inroads on the East Coast, my little piece of high ground here in the middle of the country isn't for sale, at any price. I'm hoping they'll all, the 1% who are the only ones who can afford oceanfront homes, will move to the Caymans, whoops, that won't work, those will be under water too, well then to one of their castles in Europe and take the ill gotten wealth with them. The rest of us will do just fine here and we don't need the pittance they pay now in taxes, we'll do as Americans always have, roll up our sleeves and make things work. Fairly, without the yapping of the 1% to distract us. They're not likely wanted back in Europe either, but that's okay, that's where they all came from and I just want them to self-deport themselves back.
