How long before Fox news blames Obama?

Five people killed in Phoenix.AZ

I just saw this and thought how sad.
But after being on this forum for some time, another thought came, just how long will it take for Fox news to blame Obama?

How many times do they let you repeat grades these days? I thought they just kicked you out and you had to try for GED or something.

After being on this forum for some time, a thought came, just how long will it take for Happybunny to exploit the death of five people for a selfish partisan jab at FoxNews? Looks like the answer is "under one hour."

At least your crocodile tears will nicely lubricate your petty conflation of the deaths of five people to suit your own agend.

Slow learner, in many ways it seems.

Yes, it actually is, and the 4:20 a.m. is not the OP's time, seeing as how he resides in the Netherlands.

4:20am EDT, but 10:20am CEST, where the poster in question is from.

All the time. Fox talking heads are routinely critical of any democratic president. Everything from how holiday party invites are worded to giving airtime to debunked theories of being a secret muslim and not really an American. Don't pretend that Fox is not a bastion of conservative ideology.

The article didn't say she was in high school, rather it quoted someone who knew her by the common context of having gone to high school together. it was poorly worded, however.

It's these needless quips that undermine the poster's false pretext and casts a big, bright light on his/her actual premise. These quips also are what usurp otherwise very valid movements because it demonstrates that at least some participants are much more interested in "the other side" losing than in accomplishing something new and better than what we have today.

...for every conceivable reason and Fox has a vivid imagination.
