Your blogger

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.

Says Jon Stewart.

Jon Stewart kicked off night two in Austin mercilessly mocking Democrats for being stuck in a political “turd hole” for midterm season and for running like hell from President Obama “like he was one of the bad guys in those Chainsaw Massacre movies.”

Stewart rounded up all the ridiculous Democratic non-answers and disses when it comes to the issue of whether they support Obama, with one senator acting like someone “found your porn.”

And what killed Stewart is that Democrats are losing to really bad Republican candidates like Mitch McConnell and Scott Brown, the latter of whom, when asked about his record, actually said, “Do I have the best credentials? Probably not. ‘Cause, you know, whatever.”

As a democrat I am astounded that these numbers can be factual- that indeed these races can be so statistically close. Fact, there are 17 million more democrats than republicans that voted in 2012 [The FEC reports that combining the total number of votes cast by Americans for president, House and Senate in 2012, Americans voted for the GOP 158,605,000 times and for the Democrats 176,167,000 times. In other words they cast over 17 million more Democratic votes than Republican votes in 2012].

Bottom line liberals, get off your asses and fucking vote!
