    Whatever the Foxteapublicans say, the opposite is the truth.

      but on issues of the economy, much of the rest of the media doesn't do much better.

        Fox "analysts" are no more intelligent than Fox viewers. They are just parrots reciting RNC and right-wing think tank talking points.

          Pls. consider that some of us DK members access Fox news & other right wing sources just 2 round out what we know &
          what is just as well to not waste brain cells knowing.

          •  I used to watch Fox for the same reason. (0+ / 0-)

            After the Republicans stole the 2004 election, I decided that I had enough, and no longer gave a fuck what they were saying. I haven't turned on Fox since.

      •  why not? During the POTUS primaries (6+ / 0-)

        Herman Caine touted his turnaround of Godfathers in a year where he was able to increase profitability from 60% of stores showing a profit to 100% of stores showing a profit (he closed the unprofitable ones)  and therein lies the kernel of GOP economic theory: if the beast is sick, shoot it.  Don't tend to it; don't feed it and don't call the vet.  Just shoot it and then announce to the world the beast is no longer sick

          the government should be run like a business. They forget or are ignorant of the fact the the two have fundamentally different goals. One is profits for individuals and the other is protecting and advancing the welfare of a nation. The other, profits and losses are numbers and are quantifiable...hence Cain can cut his loss making units.  But how do you quantify profits from having clean air, clean water sources, uncontaminated food, safe neigborhoods, good roads, good schools and  teachers, walkable neigborhoods, parks and recreation, libraries, social cohesion, peace and happiness?
          -So it is the very height of stupidity when you hear supposedly educated folks say the government ought be run like a business.
          -Even if we choose to run it like business and it still doesn't make a profit (because not all business would make a profit), what do we do then? Close it down like a business too?

          •  using Herman as a model, this would mean (0+ / 0-)

            lining up public assistance recipients along the edge of the Grand Canyon and then giving them a shove.  He could then issue a presser stating he had completely solved our welfare problem
