Skip to comments.President Blames Media for Bad Image
Posted on 01/22/2012 2:01:41 PM PST by John Semmens
President Obama laid the blame for impressions that he is cold and aloof at the feat of what he called a largely hostile media.
Its lonely at the top, Obama complained. The average person has plenty of equally situated people who share similar day-to-day experiences. But who shares what I go through on a daily basis? Im one-of-a-kind. No one is my equal. I cant hang out with anyone without having to reach down to a lower social strata.
Instead of praising my magnificence, though, the media foments criticism and complaints, Obama continued. A person reading a newspaper or watching TV is given the impression that pretty much anyone has the right to criticize anything Ive done or might do. Im not saying that everyone has to like what I do, but if they cant say something nice, why say anything at all? Where have peoples manners gone? Wheres the civility of discourse and show of deference to ones betters that leaders used to be able to count on from those they rule?
In related news, the BLT Restaurant chain used the occasion of a visit by the First Family to add an entree called the Obama Burger to its menu. The burger is a Kobe beef patty served with bacon and cheese at a price of $28. The chain characterized it as a burger fit for a king. Both the President and First Lady bypassed the burger and ordered an $81 steak. Why would a king eat a burger when he could have a steak? Michelle asked.

The media would have to get off their knees first.
Obama is correct. I can't relate to vacations every other week, and golfing every weekend.

what a joke, it was the MSM which got him elected, ignored facts, twisted facts and still do not cover issues like fast and furious .
They try and make his wife look like a Goddess when she is not and refuse to point out her hypocrisy .
Seems he’s saying all this now due to Newt stating facts and now trying to make the MSM is not for him.
5 in a row — as always, excellent John!
This one is closer than ever (and that is saying something!)
I assume after he said that, that they all including him burst out laughing.
a largely hostile media.
The entire media is so up this “magic negros” ass and has been for his whole political career.
I’ve YET to see anyone in media treat obammy the way they treated Bush.
Ask this baboso some real questions without a teleprompter?
NO way they let this marxist punk go against Newt in any real debate.
Wow! What a narcissist! I can’t believe he ACTUALLY SAYS this stuff. Stunning really.
“Im one-of-a-kind. No one is my equal.”
ROFLMAO John. Good one.
The media carries Obama like a hat. They are so far up his butt that he has to tell them where to go because their eyes are covered.
I bookmarked this one! Poor child having to mingle with lower social strata. Just wow!
Any time you have a bunch of white, male, former journalism students swooning, fawning and fainting over you at your Socialist “change” rallies, the American public will definitely think that something isn’t right and your image will go into the toilet.
If I could be a journalist for a day, I would set up a live interview with the president. I would send him all of the scripts ahead of time, which would be designed to make him look smart and awesome. Then when the live cameras came on, I would ask completely different questions.
Another dream would be the guy to run his teleprompter for just one day, would be fun to see what kind of ridiculous things I could get him to say.
