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.

The most surprising part of Tuesday’s Republican dominance in the midterm election, Daily Show host Jon Stewart said, was their conciliatory tone afterwards — particularly impending Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Who the fuck are you people?” Stewart asked. “I gotta tell ya, that sound byte would probably have been better not coming from the guy who, for the past six years, has been one of the sole owners and operators of this country’s perpetual conflictionator.”

Stewart’s team also criticized Democrats for allowing the GOP to deliver what he called “a tectonic skull-fucking,” complete with a graphic showing an elephant mounting a donkey.
“By the way, that is the new congressional seal,” he said, pointing at the image. “Feel free to print it out, put it on your backpacks, and show people at your grade school that you’re interested in politics.”
Stewart got into an argument with correspondent Jordan Klepper when Klepper tried to give the Republicans credit for successes achieved under the Democrat-controlled Senate.
“If Democrats had accomplished all of that, they would have been out there bragging about it for months,” Klepper said. “It would have been the central message of their campaign instead of their actual message, which was like, ‘We’re sorry, don’t be mad! We don’t like Obama, either — we like guns, too.’”

Bottom line, liberals are lazy voters.

FACT: 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.

For those who failed to do their civic duty - may you get what your deserve!
