I'm sensing a change occurring at fox (I smell disinfectant in the air) ...

The first topic for the "expert panel" was: "will President Obama be able to work with the Democrats, or will there be 'gridlock'." Bill crystal said: "President Obama will get significant legislation through ... republicans will have to compromise." Evan By(?) essential said the some thing, as did the panelists ... All agreeing, all sounding reasonable; enter Laura Ingram, repeating what was the basic, and acceted/acceptable gop pre-election talking points. She came off as "hair on fire" unreasonable and a reminder of that exact grid-lock, that By and, even, crystal were distancing themselves from.

It seems that fox is putting the extremists of their party on air and letting the do their crazy; while surrounding them by "non-extremist." These candidates come off as the crazy that they are.

This is the "Ohio roving" (i.e., putting him on air without telling him the bus is running over him) of the rightwing punditry and the teaparty ...

2. It might be too soon to give them credit for anything other than emotional gut reactions right now

If Romney had won we Democrats would be in the throes of fearful shock and disarray right now. The loss on one side and win on the other are still sinking in.

There's no way Republicans are doing anything other than reacting by being in rage, denial and grief right now.

4. True and their talking heads are on TV this AM spouting Dem failures

NEGATIVITY. NEGATIVITY. NEGATIVITY. NEGATIVITY. NEGATIVITY. NEGATIVITY. NEGATIVITY.

But without specifics or merit, all to distract from the true narrative that Mitt ran a corrupt campaign. Republicans don't want the narrative to focus on how disorganized and mismanaged Mitt's team was. It was an echo chamber filled with other like minded loyalists hell bent on making a buck from the campaign and personally coming out on top, no matter what outcome of the election.

Romney proved he would have made a horrible president and would have put our democracy and the stability of the world in jeopardy. The man and the Republican party live in a world based on projecting their weaknesses onto others, because they have no idea what is necessary to govern effectively.
