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.

Americans For Shared Prosperity Sinks To New Low


First it was creepy Republican Uncle Sam probing vagina's, now it's creepy American's for Shared Prosperity dating Profile ad.

TPM's Sahil Kapur asked if this is the weirdest, creepiest ad of the 2014 election cycle and my response is "Yes." I don't know who these Republicans think they're appealing to with this sexist, condescending piece of garbage, but it's flooding the airways on my local channels. I found it extremely insulting and that's about the nicest thing you can say about it.

Here's more from the TPM article:
A new outside ad aimed at boosting Republican candidates in the midterm elections is gaining attention — and raising eyebrows. 
The 60-second spot, "Dating Profile," was released by the group Americans for Shared Prosperity, which is run by Republican millionaire and California winery owner John Jordan, according to Politico. He wants to fight back against the Democrats' "war on women" rhetoric. 
The ad features a woman who says she no longer cares for Barack Obama after she "fell in love" with him in 2008 and stuck by him in 2012 when "our relationship was in trouble." She becomes angry, and says, "I know I'm stuck with Barack for two more years, but I'm not stuck with his friends." 
One of her gripes about Obama? "He thinks the only thing I care about is free birth control. But he won't even let me keep my own doctor."

When conservatives are not "legitimately raping" women, they try to breed them, when they fail there, they patronize them. GOP, full of white pasty old men who live five centuries behind the times.

Not sure about you readers, but I can't wait to see how these idiots woo the black, Hispanic and gay vote.

Americans for Shared Prosperity, you are today's worst people in the world!
