When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

Bill "Bubba" Clinton hands GOP their ass!

Just the facts please!

Bill Clinton singlehandedly dismantled the Romney-Ryan campaign narrative that President Obama is trying to put an end to Medicare at the Democratic Convention Wednesday night, pointing out that it is in fact the Romney-Ryan proposal for Medicare that would permanently change the program to a depreciating voucher system. “It takes some brass,” Clinton said, “to attack a guy for doing what you did”:
First, Both Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan attacked the President for allegedly robbing Medicare of $716 billion. But it is not true.........

So, President Obama and the Democrats did not weaken Medicare. They strengthened Medicare. When Congressman Ryan looked into that TV camera and attacked President Obama’s Medicare savings as “the biggest, coldest power play,” I did not know whether to laugh or cry. Key cuts that $716 billion is exactly to the dollar the same amount of Medicare savings that he had in his own budget. It takes some brass to attack a guy for doing what you did.

Below is the full forty nine minute speech and below this video is a shortened audio version of snippets from the speech


Let's face it readers critical thinking is not a teapublican's strong suit. I found that after watching the speech that reason and a firmer grasp on reality is far more entertaining than an empty chair! Can we say that the "Big Dawg" chewed on some tea bagger bones last night. Crunch!

Can anyone remember what Bush said about Romney in his speech in Tampa last week at the RNC? Oh that is right, Bush wasn't invited to the American Taliban convention.

Bill "Bubba" Clinton, The bottom line: One of our greatest presidents who actually created a budget surplus for America! For his affair with Monica Lewinski and only because it took place on government property he should have been censored or reprimanded but not crucified. When the tea billies seized the opportunity to attempt to destroy his political career, America lost a golden chance to set this country right and keep it on a truly democratic course. As a past president he has continued to clearly articulate the real “American Dream” and is an incredible spokesman for that vision. He may be even more effective as a crucified president than if he had continued in office. A true American Hero!

The American Taliban, consider yourselves on notice, and consider yourself PWNED by Bubba!
