Obama’s 2008 win was labeled a Landslide, by many in the press.
It was also called “A Mandate for Change“. (Well… we definitely got that.)
Keep in Mind, He won by a 6% point margin…
Anyway, Media Bias is typically addressed only after the fact. The screams come once the insult is suffered and then lives only briefly in the minds of those with other things to do. This is a fact… and a complaint.
I have a suspicion however. I think we are in for it this time around, or, as usual. In other words, The Leftists will not go quietly. And, they will certainly not admit defeat.
Here is a “Bias Prep” to ready your election night viewing come 10pm Eastern Time on Nov. 6th.
What will a Romney Victory of 6-Points or More be labeled by the Mainstream Media?
A Landslide? A Mandate? A Rejection of Socialism? The Voice of the People?
Or will we here the Tired Bromide of Racism… or better yet, a “Temper Tantrum“…
I bring this up now because there is plenty of time before the election actually happens and because Romney by no means has this thing in the bag. Even the clearly Republican engineered “Frankenstorm” designed to suppress the East Coast Socialist Vote may not help… I knew there was a reason Republicans wanted us all driving SUV’s.
So file this post. Let’s see how the press handles a Romney Victory should it happen. (It will happen…)
The Drinking Game should revolve around the Excuses for such a victory. (It certainly can’t be legitimate… what “journalist” knows anyone voting for Romney?)
I need to start roughing the game out… over a glass of wine.

I think they’ll chalk it up to “Americans being too impatient”. I’ll chalk it up to the fact that deep down, Americans love freedom. Even many on the Left are only there for what they think as freedom arguments ~ pro-choice and gay marriage. Never mind that pro-choice is actually infringing on the unborn’s inalienable Right to Life.

Wait, Republicans caused the hurricane?

I’m waiting for the “Global Warming caused Superstorm because Republicans are Deniers” line coming any day now…

Obama promised he would never let this happen again after the RNC hurricane. Promise broken.
