Posted on 08/15/2009 3:14:06 PM PDT by kcvl
U.S. President Barack Obama says news organizations are putting too much emphasis on scenes of hostile protesters at public meetings on his health care reform plan. The president received tough but polite questions from Americans Friday in the Northwestern state of Montana.
Mr. Obama said most meetings on his plan have been civil, and those that have been disrupted are in the minority. "What you have not seen on TV, and what makes me proud, are the many constructive meetings going on all over the country. Everywhere across the country you are seeing people who are coming together and having a civil, honest, often difficult conversation about how we can improve the system," he said.
Obama denounces emphasis on health care protests
By LIZ SIDOTI (AP) 1 day ago
BELGRADE, Mont. President Barack Obama on Friday denounced news media emphasis on scenes of angry protesters at town-hall meetings on health care as he fielded polite but tough questioning on his efforts.
“TV loves a ruckus,” Obama said.
I wonder when this clown will apologize for the union goon assault on Kenneth Gladney?
Keep it up America, He can’t pack every meeting!
What a whiner!!!
He really hates it when he’s not the center of attention. Typical lib brat.
Proud member of the “Ruckus Caucus”.
So I guess the MSM’s attacking of the folks showing up at the town halls isn’t working so phase two is to ignore them. Good luck with that :)
Would that be Mobruckus Caucus Americanus?
Obamessiah’s getting impatient for us to all get back to the worshipping.
Sorry Baracko! When a country is about to surrender all of its freedoms and liberties to the government in exchange for “free” health insurance reform, the people might need a little “emphasis” on what they are about to do.
Then, real assaults against handicapped and protesting Americans.
But the media ignores it.
Then, fake Obama doctors. But the media ignores it.
The MSM are accomplices both before, and after, the fact.
One of Obama's (and the MSM's) FAKE "doctors"
in their plan to exterminate Obama-selected elderly and conservative adults.
"Patterico Busts TX Grad Student/Obama Delegate Posing As Doctor; Chron Doesn't Credit, Still Disclosure-Challenged
Ms. Mayer, who claimed to be a doctor when she spoke at a town hall meeting held by Houston Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
... At first, the Houston Chronicle took Mayer's word that she is a doctor, failed to investigate her bona fides"
"Obama camp plants fake doc, Che fan at Jackson Lee forum
One supporter, Dr. Roxana Mayer, a physician who does not live in Jackson Lees district, praised the reform plan for overhauling a broken system.
I dont know what there is in the bill that creates such panic, she said.
In this video, Mayer claims to be a general practitioner, eliciting applause and even a hug from Queen Sheila:
.... Roxana Mayer is, like, totally not a doctor.
... her name does not appear in the database maintained by the Texas Medical Board, which licenses all doctors in Texas.
But she is an Obama campaign volunteer."
With regards to the following statement, produce proof please!!! - “What you have not seen on TV, and what makes me proud, are the many constructive meetings going on all over the country. Everywhere across the country you are seeing people who are coming together and having a civil, honest, often difficult conversation about how we can improve the system,” Obama said.
He just gave an order to his lackeys to knock it off with the news coverage. I think we can expect a marked decline in the coverage.
Too much reportin’ going on out there!
They are good at ignoring things
Wow, Obama is now a journalist too. Guess he can’t help himself but to tell everyone else how to do their job.
Friggin hypocrite. When it’s gushy coverage totally biased towards him, that’s just fine - that is fact.
Everything he does is out of a communst playbook. Everything. Accuse enemies of doing what you’re doing. Rip any opposing media accounts as distorted, over the top, not representative, etc etc.
We need these commie bastards out the next election and maybe him sooner with this stupid birth certificate thing that he STILL has not produced. He won’t unless a court orders him to because this way they get mileage out of calling them crazy.
Born too late and in a wrong country, Dumbo.
Should have been born in the Soviet Union, so you would be able to dictate the media what they can and what they cannot report.
