    When a conservative network arises, moderate Fox is toast. There is nothing in the middle of the road but a yellow stripe and dead possums.

  • Steve

    Someone tell Mr. Hume that the so-called “Moderates & Independents” and their value to getting elected is a myth. They had their man in McCain in ’08. Did it work then?

  • Gimme a Break

    The media said that Reagan fellow was too conservative for the moderates.

  • RedBeard

    This is what the elitist pundits said about Ronald Reagan in 1979-80. He had the skill and personality to overcome the silly media biases. But it’s still an open question as to whether Bachmann (and Palin) can do the same thing.

  • Sickofobama

    I saw Hume say this crap last night and wanted to punch my TV.

    He doesn’t speak for me and the American people.

    O’Reilly seemed like the sane one during that interview.

    That’s saying something from me.

    Fox is starting to suck big time.

  • Josh

    Even Fox news has become too progressive for me to watch.

    The Hegelian Dialectic is hard at work over there.

  • ruready?

    Obama is toxic – but far be it from FOX to say that. Just pick on the conservative woman. Brit, you can speak in your deep, authoritative voice all day long – Michele Bachman is still twice the man you are.

  • Got Billy Ayers on Speed Dial

    More importantly, Bill and Brit are caustic when discussing Governor Palin.

    These clowns are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

  • USMC Thomas

    The MSM live in their little disillusioned ivory tower of smug intellectual and moral superiority and virtue that has no connection to everyday Americans, as they misunderstood completely in 2010.

  • Reaganite Republican

    RNCC clearly has a hand in what’s being done at Fox these days

    IMHO- Bachmann can beat Romney… and probably will

  • Karen

    Why do conservative men find conservative women “toxic”? I just don’t get it.
    This would never be said of Perry who actually spoke of secession (far more radical than anything Bachmann has said). The double standard is remarkable.
    Hume needs to realize that Romney(care) is extremely toxic.

  • No Man

    Probably too toxic for RINO’s and GOP party insiders. She’s not one of either ilk.

    Not too toxic for this Independent.

    Anybody but Obama.

  • myohmy

    What is Brit Hume problem with women?

  • Walknot

    The new network is Glenn Becks…Fox will have to tighten up their sippy cup lids if they want to compete.

  • chili palmer

    The best efforts of losers like Brit Hume, Karl Rove, and the rest destroyed the Republican Party, destroyed America, robbed good citizens of lifetimes of work and sacrifice (including some surviving WWII veterans), gave us Obama and Soros in the Oval Office, and ObamaCare. Many Establishment Republicans should be rotting in jail. At minimum, they should have retired from public life in shame. They are democrat and media tools, nothing more. These people did not want the new people we gave them in Nov. 2010 and have done everything they could to shut them down. They are happy in the minority, and their only purpose is to prevent us from getting someone who could save this country. Donald Trump, speaking of Independents, scored enormously well with independents when he was making his run. I followed it closely. The Establishment failures are completely wrong about what independents want. The democrats could easily be beaten. It will be much harder to beat the establishment gop. As Rush Limbaugh has said, “The Ruling Class GOP will fight more viciously to defeat a conservative Republican than they will to defeat Obama.”

    OT..from free republic
    [Virginia O’Brien, Special Agent in Charge at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Tampa Field Division, ran a gun-running investigation that was walking guns to Honduras using the techniques and tactics identical to Fast and Furious, it was reported to these correspondents this evening via private correspondence from a proven credible source.]

  • Granny

    I stopped watching for a while back when I realized that Fox is no more conservative than a pig can fly and that “fair and balanced” is another term for “hogwash.” Who cares what Brit Hume says . . .

  • obfuscatenot

    #7 ruready?…….perfect.

    Brit, you can speak in your deep, authoritative voice all day long – Michele Bachman is still twice the man you are.

  • Reaganite Republican

    Just a thought- maybe some at Fox are already trying to limit the damage of a BIG Bachmann win in Iowa, as a favor to their buddies at the RNC…?

  • RKflorida

    Why do these so called pundits think they have a gift of prophecy. Is there a secret beltway crystal ball that is issued to these RINO’s? They all seem to know the future but if their past prophecies are any guide, they are nearly always wrong.
