    Who will be the last conservative to understand what is going on in America?



    CARLSBAD, California (Reuters) - News Corp Chief Executive Rupert Murdoch on Wednesday predicted a Democratic landslide in the U.S. presidential election against a gloomy economic backdrop over the next 18 months.

    Murdoch has yet to endorse a U.S. presidential candidate but considers Barack Obama very promising, the media magnate said in an interview by two Wall Street Journal reporters at an annual conference for high-tech industry insiders.

    News Corp recently acquired ownership of the Journal and its parent company Dow Jones & Co.

    "You have got the Obama phenomenon. You have got, undoubtedly, a recession ... The average American is really getting hurt financially and that all bodes well for him (Obama), Murdoch said.

    "You have probably the making of a complete phenomenon in this country," Murdoch said in describing what he predicted will be a sweeping victory for Democrats in November.

    Define "conservative" (Murdoch isn't, he's a capitalist, he saw a niche and filled it...and Fox News has been #1 for 77 weeks in a row), what is "understand"...because frequently my understanding and yours are different, and I'd like to be clear just who's reality we're playing in, and what is going on?

    I'll tell you what's going on. If Obama is elected POTUS, by Feb 1 there will be nothing but outpourings of stories about how everything is wonderful. No more homeless, foreclosures, we're suddenly winning in Iraq and al Queda has ceased to exist, gas will be 25 cents a gallon and they'll give away free tootsie pops with every fill up...etc etc.

    So the guy that owns Fox News says something and it's gospel, but everything broadcasted on Fox News is biased, thanks I got it now!!!

    I honestly think it might be good for FOX if Obama wins. Finding flaws in a president is a lot easier than kissing his butt during bad decision after bad decision...

    Fact remains--Murdoch is hardly a conservative.

    The non Fox MSM should know that all too well; however I'm sure they'll happily continue ball washing The Prince when he is President.

    You know, back in the old days King Henry actually had a guy who's job it was simply to stand by the royal poop bucket and swab the royal arse.

    I betcha Chris Matthews has already sent his resume to the BHO campaign.
