'It's funny now, but not so much when he gaffes it up over in Israel.'

He did that today, claiming that the Arab Spring could have been avovided if we'd continued the Bush doctrine in the Middle East.

Yeah it's funny that a guy named DromEd mocks the intelligence of the people who bring him his news. Dromed, you can't believe the crap you're watching on Fox man. They have you brainwashed. Snap out of it bro!

You can ROTFLMFAO all you want. I can pretty much guarantee that the people in that video know a lot more about what is going on in the world than you do. That is their job.

"I believe you meant that News and broadcasting people tend to be highly educated and highly informed"

Yes. That is exactly what I meant. While I don't have any statements or facts to back it up it tends to reason that people who make their living finding and disseminating information are typically highly informed themselves.

"However, you're paragraph about education terribly fails logically. First and foremost, education does not beget intelligence."

No it doesn't. Studies repeatedly show that people with advanced degrees heavily skew liberal. Studies also show that viewers and listeners of conservative news and radio are the least informed people. However I completely agree that knowledge and intelligence are completely separate issues. I never said anything about intelligence. However highly intelligent people are typically more likely to seek out higher education. But there are lots of highly intelligent conservatives, especially in the leadership. They are able to consistently get poor and middle class people to vote against their own interests and manipulate their opinions to benefit themselves and their billionaire friends. That kind of control takes high intelligence.

AvatarJohn, you have no effing clue what Marxism is. Too, is there any POSSIBLE way to disagree what that statement?! At all?! You were popped out of the womb already a CEO?

As for this link, I wish they would have included his quote, but, fact it, it isn't insulting American liberals, only folks from the UK (both conservative and liberal folks from the UK). It's not the Americans that are up in arms, they're just covering it--poorly (if this link is any indication). It's the Brits. And, to me, they have a right to be. A foreign politician comes in and says true but insulting things. He mentioned the view from the "back side" of Downing Street. Shouldn't be a problem, right? Except, back side is more strongly slang for "ass" there. Still not terribly, but just gaffe-ish. Why can't that just be accepted and move on? Liberals here aren't up in arms over it.

@Tedgp: I'm with you. The Olympics are nothing but a money wasting boondoggle. Has any city ever received long term benefit from hosting them. Just saying the Brits don't need to jump all over Romney (although since I despise politicians equally I have enjoyed watching him squirm) because he pointed out something everyone already knew.

I just heard that Romney retroactively prevented himself from saying that comment, so crisis averted.

We are allowed to be pissed off- we have a massive corporate event which will not benefit us much ( if at all)- cause huge inconvenience to most of London and has problems- which big event doesn't have snafus . We have a media which will pick up on this and report it- we are not good at glossy shiney lets pretend stuff. It does not mean it will be a balls up- and if Romney doesn't understand that he will not do very well at foreign relations.

@HolyGod: OK, so let us then compromise. While I intended to point out that this clip was biased (while certainly suggesting that the associated news stations are also liberally biased), the news snippets included don't actually convey this (thought the overall clip certainly does).

However, you're paragraph about education terribly fails logically. First and foremost, education does not beget intelligence. In fact, there are many studies that suggest conservatives tend to occupy both extreme ranges of the intelligence scale (for different reasons), while liberals tend to occupy the median area (education presents differently).

Second, the statement that "Highly educated and highly informed people tend to work in News and broadcasting" is logically fallacious. I believe you meant that News and broadcasting people tend to be highly educated and highly informed - which is still debatable.

You can feel free to say whoever cut and edited this video is liberally biased since they left it out. But just because this video only shows snippets of a news cast doesn't imply the newscast left out the full story.

Highly educated and highly informed people tend to be liberal. Highly educated and highly informed people tend to work in News and broadcasting. So I'm not going to deny they probably have a personal bias to some degree. But this had no bias whatsoever.

@HolyGod: "Jesus H Christ must EVERYTHING be liberal / conservative?"

You are correct; there are libertarians also . In all reality, I have a hard time as seeing the as being unbiased. Typically an unbiased claim will include the actual quote.

I only point out the liberal stations because I heard nothing about Obama's massive gaffe regarding the "Polish death camps"... Fox probably reported it, but c'mon - it's Fox.

I'll revise my statement when news stations begin vetting candidates equally regardless of their political agendas.

'And Mitt knows what it takes to run a successful games...he's got the track record.'

A Winter Olympics in the middle of nowhere basically bought by bribery? OK, Romney was involved post-bribery but SLC only got it through corruption.

Uh... what did he actually?

This video looks like a useless sensationalism of some innocuous comment by Romney, but in light of the conflagration created by Obama's statement regarding Small Businesses, this sort of retaliatory upstepping is to be expected.

He told the truth, whether or not people liked it or not. Of course the conservative mayor and PM would get mad at him for criticizing their gross mismanagement of the olympics. They feel offended because he pointed out their incompetence.

What's REFRESHING is that here we have a politician telling the truth for once. If Romney does his usual political thing, people get mad. If he tells the truth, people get mad.

Weird issue this is to have come up.

@sosueme1966 We didnt want the olympics over here in the first place. It was the politicans that decided it would happen. The Uk just cant afford to run them, and we dont have the infrastructure to support it. Especially since its focused around london.

Romney wanted to show how good he was at foreign relations. Within minutes he pissed of America's closest ally and got slapped down by a conservative PM and a conservative mayor.

This was an easy one and he blew it. Next stop Israel.

Aren't we always saying we wish politicians would tell the truth? Now you can see why they usually don't.

At least he didn't say something incredibly insulting and bordering on totalitarian marxism such as:

"Look, if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own. You didn't get there on your own. I'm always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something - there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."

I despise Cameron but 'It's much easier to hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.' Heh, not bad.

And as for being better for the UK than Obama because of your 'Anglo-saxon heritage'; you can shove that, pal.

Weak sauce madest. One...the report didn't even include Mitt's comments, just the reaction of toffy nosed Brits. And Mitt knows what it takes to run a successful games...he's got the track record. I'd like a President that isn't afraid to tell it like it is thank you.

"liberal stations"

Jesus H Christ must EVERYTHING be liberal / conservative? That wasn't biased. It wasn't punditry. It was straight forward reporting of British reaction. I'm sure those stations put up the Romney quote. This video is just a collection of the reaction to it.
