Skip to comments.Obama blames modern technology for making voters overly informed.

US President Barack Obama lamented Sunday that in the iPad and Xbox era, information had become a diversion that was imposing new strains on democracy...

Yeah, its a real bitch for tyrants when the truth gets around.....
Barry: “I miss the days of the old Pravda”
I thought this was a remarkably bold line:
"Let's face it -- even some of the craziest claims can quickly gain traction. I've had some experience with that myself....considering how well the masses were manipulated by the media during his campaign and presidency thus far.
And when he starts talking about things that "threaten democracy," I start thinking the worst about what his brain-trust might come up with to solve the "problem."
Maybe it’s time for a Hugo Chavis like fairness Doctrine ... :)
The mainstream Marxist media the conservative weenie media have been silent on his natural born status.
It’s getting harder and harder to dupe those of us who make an effort to stay informed. Drats!
Fact is, his intention is to destroy our Republic.
Now what?!? 0 is preparing us for the theft of information and the freedom thereof by his administration. Lucifer is their hero.Guess I’d better get out my stationery and pen.
New methods need to be invented now!
The Technology is not the problem. The problem is the belief is that “Everything is politics”.
When you insert your unwelcome self into people’s lives they become rapidly educated and then start to act to disable the government’s interference.
Hey, Mr. "Constitutional Scholar", the United States is NOT a democracy - we are a Republic.
Yeah! Those crazy claims just won't go away!
Uh?...Like where's your long form birth certificate?
Hm?...No one remembers you being in classes at Columbia?
Or?...Gee! Your dad was a British and Kenyan citizen and never a naturalized American?
free speech is not for tyrants is it
We are going to see a frontal assault on free speech real soon now. First the FTC overruling the SC and attacking the Internet with their lies, and next up FNC and then talk radio.
Tyrants do not like in your face opposition.
The history of Chavez and Venezuela’s media is a good research project if you need more. Frontline did a starter video some time back called “The Hugo Chavez Show”
It’s morphing into the Barcky Obama Show.
“Obama, who does not like just how informed the masses have become.”.....
Just a damn shame that it isn’t the streets of Chicago where you’re shuck and jive community orginizing routine seems to fool everyone....right, Obongo?
“Knowledge will forever govern ignorance. And a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with power, which knowledge gives.” ~ James Madison - “The Father of the Constitution”.
That would create many-many government jobs reviewing all the posts. Would the rest of the world buy a crazy idea like this? Or would the same SCOTUS allow this that just threw out McCain-Feingold censorship bill?
only a communist could think or say such rubbish
This is how free elections are stopped and the voice of the opposition shut down.
I see no way out of this. It’s as if we’ve been check-mated by the devil.
So says the man who refused to give up his Crackberry when he got elected.
Regarding the title of the thread, Barry Soetoro will soon change that ... he is now the ruler and his appointed csars will clean up that loose end sooner rather than later, because November elections are looming.
Hey Obama, ya kenyan communist asshole!
Kim Jong Il doesn’t allow his citizens to own a cell phone or camera, and contact with the outside world is forbidden. Violation of such totalitarian laws yields time in the gulag or public execution.
Obama has taken his mask off again, and shown us that he is nothing more than a tin-pot wearing tyrant.
Clearly his ability to manipulate the MSM is central to his ability to rule. Alternative media are mucking up his well oiled machine. Too bad.
We shall soon find out if Rush, Beck, Hannity...(and the other yappers)....are phonies or cowards.
If they are are phonies Rush, Beck, Hannity, and the rest, will sell their talents to the fascist oligarchy. They will spit shine the boots crushing our necks.
If they are cowards they will not assist the oligarchy but they will rue the day that they failed to report on Obama's eligibility early in his run for president. There is still time to do this. The time to oppose evil is NOW! Why? Because:
**The fascist oligarchy will throw them off the air anyway.
**The fascist oligarchy will carry out their threats against them anyway.
**The fascist oligarchy will reveal their deepest darkest secrets anyway.
**The fascist oligarchy will steal their money anyway.
Personally,...Words don't exist in the English language that can convey my level of disgust and contempt for Rush, Beck, Hannity, ( and the other yappers) for having ignored Obama's eligibility. They are hypocrits when they claim to hold the Constitution in esteem and then report nothing about Obama's natural born status.
Rush in a tongue in cheek manner says, "Talent on loan from God!" Well...There is true in that. He will be held accountable before God for having hidden his talent under a bushel and allowed Obama's eligibility to go unreported. Also..It complete possible for God to raise up and even greater talent to challenge Rush and put him out of business.
He is smart enough to know what to attack and what to allow others to attack.
He walks a tight rope and is subject to being criticised by the PRESIDENT. Imagine, the president of our country has stuped to throw barbs at Rush, at Hannity, etc. Pretty pathetic on uhbama's part. But expected.
Hussein shouldn't talk about truth meters.
Unfortunately, there is a large segment of our population which does not care to be informed. Perhaps that is why Soap Operas and "Reality " shows are so popular.
Yes, the DUMBER voters are, the more apt they are to vote for a dumb *ss like you, Obimination.
Sometimes the truth isn’t pretty, *ss*ole!
"There is no Izvestiya in Pravda, and there is no Pravda in Izvestiya."
“Let’s face it — even some of the craziest claims can quickly gain traction. I’ve had some experience with that myself.
Yeah....like “You can keep your healthcare...” and “No tax increases for anyone making less that $250,000...”
Amazing how that disinformation gets around....
Apparently technology failed in November 2008, because there are a lot of voters who would now like to change their votes.
He's paving the way for future suppression of the internet, ala Red China. My bet is that he already has plans in the making for that. This is a man who really does want to be CEASAR Obama.
Ultimately, there are too many people in America who are praying with all their might that the Constitution will be upheld and restored to its original meaning. God will raise up people with the talent ( and courage) to do that, if people like Rush, Beck, Hannity, ( and the other yappers) refuse to do it.
Really...The talent that Rush, Beck, Hannity,( and the other yappers) hold really is “talent on loan from God.”
Not sure what you mean by yapper but it reads kind of insulting like. I thank God these good men are on the talent marker using their God given skills to inform all of us of the details the main stream press ignores. The information we get from the talk show hosts makes all the difference in our knowledge base. None of us have the time or the research capacity that these men or women (thinking of Laura Ingraham, in particular) have.
He means can’t make any secret moves no more!
Obama was raised among communist sympathizers,Marxist, socialist or whatever.
He was never taught what made/makes this country great.
We will have elections in 2010, and in 2012 he will be voted out.
I agree. Tomorrow is November and it is going to be incredibly ugly for the rats.
2012? Possible fifty state sweep for the Repubs with monster coat tails gaining us more seats in Congress.
Tomorrow is November!
