Obama Still Obsessed With FOX News

Obama Still Obsessed With FOX News

“We’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues.”

Obama’s obsession with FOX News is well documented. In 2009, shortly after being sworn in as president, his administration said FOX wasn’t a real news network and accused FOX News of being a wing of the Republican Party.

It doesn’t matter to Obama that he’s received the most fawning media coverage of any president in the last fifty years; he just can’t sleep at night knowing that there’s one cable news network that has dared to question him.

The president’s thin skin was on full display yesterday when he appeared at a “poverty summit” at Georgetown University. While invoking straw men who apparently hate poor people, Obama couldn’t resist demonizing his old standby enemy.

Transcript via John Nolte of Breitbart:

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 and Sen. Mitch McConnell 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.

Here’s the video:

Obama also felt compelled to call out conservatives and churches on poverty.

Sarah Wheaton of Politico:

Obama calls out financiers, conservatives and churches on poverty

There were none of Obama’s typical jokes about being a Muslim at the Catholic-Evangelical Leadership Summit on Overcoming Poverty. Instead, Obama spoke directly about his religion, referring to “my own Christian faith” and how pushing for a more equal society is “vital to following what Jesus Christ, our Savior, talked about.”

But Obama gently criticized churches for how they engage politically. In terms of “what’s the thing that is really going to capture the essence of who we are as Christians, or as Catholics,” he said, concern about poverty “is oftentimes viewed as a ‘nice to have’ relative to an issue like abortion.”

Stephen Miller noted the irony on Twitter:

Obama also had the audacity to complain about parents who send their kids to private schools.

Yes, really:

I’m just thinking out loud here…

Maybe FOX News isn’t the problem.

“I have to say that if you watch Fox News on a regular basis …”

Oh please. When has President Asshole Obama ever watched FoxNews ? … most certainly not on a “regular basis”.

    The FOX is in the hen hou…er….White House?

    The FOX is in Obama’s head and it’s driven him even MORE CRAZY!

    Ha ha Snark Snark

I was stunned. Which, at this point in his regime, is a good trick for Barracula to pull off!

It’s hard to chose which was more on disgusting display…

Projection

Straw-MEN (a brigade)

Preaching to people about what their religion should be

Open totalitarianism (stifle Fox, change the way those prols think)

Lies (a waitress with two kids is “doing everything right”, and pretending he doesn’t know where indolent people are being dug up!)

Weird disjunctions about cause and effect

It was a tour d’force of raging bullshit.

Obviously, Obama is another one of those people who presumes he knows what is on FOX News because he heard what somebody said they said.

Shame on him for relying on gossip from dishonest people.

The argument is not with poor people, but with well-intentioned policies that have perverse results, as shown by long-term, repeated experiments with our economy at the Federal level, and in the various states and cities. Baltimore, for example, has been in Democratic control for decades, with many public offices now held by black politicians, and about a billion in spending on “poverty.”

Many of our policies toward low-income people are de-motivating, and some even degrade the family structure. Failing to take our long-term experience with these perverse effects into account is irresponsible.

Obama, true to form, is pretending that we do not have the last 50 years of policy experience to draw upon, and that his term has been anything but an unmitigated, prolonged disaster for low-income people and black families that should have remained solidly middle-class.

Comrade Obama is letting his inner Totalitarian flag fly. Poor Fox News. They barely rank in double digits within the news media spectrum and yet he and his fellow Leftists constantly have to chew on the network’s pants leg. Typical behavior of a totalitarian. It is not that Fox broadcasts anything that isn’t presented elsewhere as well, it is the simple fact that Fox exists at all. They can’t tolerate it.

The sophisticated Leader leads us to a bold new future…

Oh, wait , it’s just tired, old, fails every time Marxism.

POTUS Obama says …

“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.”

… but according to …

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) says with budgets like the GOP plan, “the have-nots of this country will rise up like the people in Baltimore.”

    Wul, yah. They’ve been working hard and playing by the rules, right?

    No?

    In truth, many of our people in poverty…never more in the history of this nation…would LOVE to be working and off the dole.

    But they can’t find jobs in the wreckage of the Obamic Decline. By design, IMNHO.

I’m just thinking out loud here…
Maybe FOX News isn’t the problem.

From now on, Aleister will be known as “Captain Obvious”.

🙂

Gee, he summed himself up quite well with that sponge, leech, not wanting to work and lazy thing!

Poor people suck. I hate them all. Not because of FOX. I hate them because I’m white, male, and UMC. So, OF COURSE I hate poor people. No-body can hate poor people because of FOX. I have proof of this assertion:

Pertinent lyric:

Dog goes woof, cat goes meow.
Bird goes tweet, and mouse goes squeak.
Cow goes moo. Frog goes croak, and the elephant goes toot.
Ducks say quack and fish go blub, and the seal goes OW OW OW.
But there’s one sound that no one knows…

WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY?

Why doesn’t the black messiah simply outlaw FOX NEWS with an executive order?
