Barky is used to getting fellatio from MSNBC, ABC, CNN, NBC, and CBS. He’s driven to distraction by the only network with the guts to stand up to his tyrannical belligerence.
For going on seven years we have learned three things about Obama: 1) He loves the poor so much he continues to create more of them. 2) He loves the poor so much he does everything in his power to keep them poor. 3) He doesn’t see the opposition as loyal, but as bad players — his enemy. This is especially true of Fox News, which Obama ripped as anti-poor bigots during a Wednesday afternoon summit on poverty.
We’re used to this Obama, the forever-partisan who has never seen himself as president of all the people but only of those who worship him.
What was most revealing about the president’s comments was his expressed desire to “change how the media reports.”
Speaking of Fox News, the poor, and the way GOP leaders think, Obama said, [W]e’re going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues.”
His idea for “change”:
“I think that the effort to suggest that the poor are sponges, leeches, don’t want to work, are lazy, are undeserving, got traction. And look, it’s still being propagated. I have to say that if you watch Fox News on a regular basis, it is a constant venue. They will find folks who make me mad. I don’t know where they find them. They’re all like, “I don’t want to work. I just want a free Obama Phone, or whatever.” And that becomes an entire narrative that gets worked up. And very rarely do you hear an interview of a waitress, which is much more typical — who is raising a couple of kids and doing everything right but still can’t pay the bills.
And so, if we’re going to change how Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) think, we’re going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues, and how people’s impressions of what it’s like to struggle in this economy looks like. And how budgets connect to that. And that’s a hard process because that requires a much broader conversation than typically we have on the nightly news.”
His lame attempt at connection with poverty falls flat; he had a privileged upbringing in Hawaii and Indonesia. At one point he even had a nanny. His old lady Mooshelle pulled the race/poverty card at the Tuskegee University commencement. That doesn’t jive with the truth, either.
He’s so fucking concerned with the poor in this country, yet there’s a record 90 million out of work and a record 47 million on welfare. He demonizes successful entrepreneurs; the very people who create jobs and hire people. ObamaCare has further strained the economy, forcing employers to cut back on hiring and lay off employees to compensate for the penalties. The DemProgs depend on keeping the poor in their place. It’s good for votes.
If only Dear Leader can get Fox News to goosestep to his proclamations like the rest of the media toadies, everything will be just fine.
Fox News provides a substantial counterpoint, with high ratings to boot, and that scares the shit out of the MSM elites. Matter of fact, Fox News’ ratings are consistently higher than the other networks.
Obama and his media tools are infuriated that Fox News is the one holdout; the one network they can’t control or get to cooperate with the Party Line.
Dear Leader doesn’t like to be contradicted.
In 2011, he launched an “Attack Watch” department to supplement his Ministry of Truth , to counteract “unfavorable stories”. It won’t work with Fox News, but his media tools at MSNBC are all too glad to oblige. One notable event took place during an MSNBC ‘Morning Joe’ broadcast, which featured a discussion of the White House targeting Fox News. An email arrived from the White House on the air to ‘correct them’ about an exchange between former WH spokesperson Robert Gibbs and Jake Tapper. One of the commentators, Mika Brezinsky actually made the ‘correction’.
While the main stream media dutifully performs fellatio on Obama, Fox News hits the SCOAMF right between the eyes with well deserved scathing criticism.
Sucks to be him.
