No Media Bias by the Wash DC Post Here...Just Move On

Original post made by !!!, Amador Estates, on Jun 7, 2012

Media bias? What bias?

Compare the headlines of this same newspaper when Obama won by 7 pts. over McCain vs. the Republican Gov. Walker victory by the same margin of 7pts. over his Democrat rival.

No bias here. Nothing to see here folks. Just move on.

Yes, the headlines should have been as follows:

Ho-Hum, Obama Survives Election Contest with McCain

Walker Is First White Governor in Wisconsin to Win Smashing Recall Victory

No, !!! and I are not as retarded as you might think. Well, maybe we are. But racist? You bet. Just keep reading Weasel Zippers and you'll know what I mean!

Yes, DA is right. How can somebody compare a mere Presidential victory by a noncitizen Kenyan with the HUUUUUUUGE Walker recall victory in Wisconsin? Obama the Poser shouldn't have even made the front page.

Yup, linking to those newspaper headlines sure seems racist to me. No sense in pointing out the obvious to you hand wringing must be terrible carrying around all that guilt from yoyur plantation owner days........

Walker is a better man than Obama. He has integrity and defends the rich against middle class workers. Obama just cozies up to the communists before he hands over this country to them.

7 pts stays 7 points . . . Should have the same weight 7% of 100 is still 7 % of less, no more.
Interesting Obama's headline was "decisive",but for Walker
he "survived" . Well, we all know where the 'PRESS' stands...always.
DA and Eve your acceptance of media bias only shows how twisted your standards are.
BTW Walker is the FIRST of any AMERICAN ANYWHERE to 'survive' any RECALL...... so 7% was far more than 'surviving'. IF you care about truth and accuracy, which apparently you don't. sad
