I watched FOX after Biden's speech.

Their divisive rhetoric was couched in mashed potatoes but still there.

Karl Rove: "Biden gave a very good speech BUT there were no memorable lines like Lincoln, or Kennedy had". (give me a fuckin break)

If the primary sources of info for those who are in the Cult or believe all the lies don't change their reporting & opinion shows and focus on honesty, nothing, NOTHING will change.

7. I'm Surprised Rover Didn't Include FDR's Pearl Harbor Speech

Why not compare Biden's speech to the Gettysburg Address as well?

What a tool Rover is.

2. Well they didn't really listen then because Joe said in it

“In another January, on New Year’s Day in 1863, Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. When he put pen to paper, the president said, and I quote, “if my name ever goes down into history, it’ll be for this act. And my whole soul is in it.”

I believe that is a reference to Lincoln.
He also referenced George Washington


Fox News idiots

Democrats must be perfect!

"Now let's hear Senator Tommy Tubberville's criticisms."

8. They have to stop the lies or nothing will change.

I agree with you there. It can't be overstated how important that is. These right-wing TV and radio outlets have radicalized so many.

9. Am I alone. . .

in hoping that Jeff Bezos stealthily buys a major interest in Fox and then closes down Fox News.

Nuts?

Just looked online. Market cap for Fox Corporation is $18 billion. Revenues for 2020 were $12 billion. Chump change for Bezos.

After all, how many companies has Bezos, Zuckerberg et al bought for the sole purpose of shutting them down or acquiring the technology and then absorbing them into the mother ship?

10. The only way it will ever change

is if no repubs are ever, ever elected to public office, anywhere, for anything, period. Otherwise, they will always obstruct for their base.
PS. I do realize this will never come to pass.

11. I have a degree in history with an American emphasis.

This was the 59th inaugural. I can only think of four memorable lines from ANY of them.

Lincoln (second): With malice toward none. With charity for all.

FDR (first): The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.

Kennedy: Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.

Trump: American carnage ends right here. And it ends right now.

That’s all I can come up with from memory, and Trump is only memorable because it was, as G W Bush said, some weird shit.

So fuck off, Rove.
