Book says Roger Ailes called Obama 'lazy' and Biden 'dumb as an ashtray'

Fox News chief Roger Ailes doesn't mince words in a new biography: President Obama is "lazy" and Vice President Joe Biden is "dumb as an ashtray."

But it's not just Democrats who get withering reviews from the conservative media icon. Ailes suggests that Sen. Marco Rubio is too soft and Newt Gingrich is a "sore loser" and an unprintable reference to male anatomy.

The blunt characterizations appear in Vanity Fair's adapted excerpt of "Roger Ailes: Off Camera," by Zev Chafets. Ailes cooperated with the book, which will be published March 19.

The comment about Obama was reportedly made during last year's presidential primary season as Ailes was briefed about Democratic operative Hilary Rosen's remark that Ann Romney had never worked a day in her life.

Hmmm...apparently Cali Dem can't read past the part critical of her Lord Obama...

4. But remember, Fox News is fair and balanced (They pretty much are...)

They present both sides without bias. (They did here, but you couldn't get past the part that you didn't like...) And if you think they're biased, you're just a liberal commie socialist pinko. (Well...pretty much. )
