Skip to comments.Obama outs Fox, but reveals a big flaw

Surely President Barack Obama and his advisers don't really think that their feud with Fox News will do anything but enhance the cable network's viewership. A deeper problem is what the flap reveals about Team Obama, which seems to be more comfortable with campaigning than governing.
I'm not happy about that. It does not fill me with glee to see Fox News star Sean Hannity joyfully replaying Obama's 2004 come-together speech about how we're "not red states or blues states" but "the United States of America" and asking where is Obama's promise now?
I don't agree with Hannity on much. He's only a tad more serious-minded as a news clown, in my grumpy view, than his colleague Glenn Beck. But, as much as my wife might run from the house when she hears me say it, Hannity's right on this one.

But I thought Zero was so *brilliant*! Maybe he’s a deep-cover mole, on the payroll of Rush Limbaugh and Fox News to increase their market share for them?
“But I thought Zero was so *brilliant*!”
He is..he was educated at Harvard </sarcasm>
This is back-handed complimenting at its finest. The joke quote was how he agreed with Lamar Alexander that this White House shouldn’t have an enemies list like Nixon’s even if theirs only had one name, Fox. Right. Sure. None of these are enemies?
1. Republicans in Congress - left out of all negotiations and not permitted to make sensible amendments to wasteful bills.
2. Doctors- perfoming unnecessary operations only to line their pockets.
3. Energy, oil companies - expelling evil CO2, murdering the Earth!
4. Insurance companies - horrible in every way.
5. America up until 2008 - see number 4.
6. Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, talk radio - ah, see 4.
7. Israel and Britain - who needs them?
You get the idea, really anyone who pays taxes is or will become and enemy.
This illustrates his real views.
Van Jones was the one who started the "truther" bunch.
The "crusade" exposed a bunch of crooks.
There he goes dissing Glenn Beck but it’s been Beck who has removed on Tsar for being a truther (not to mention Marxist) and pointed out the Maoists in the administration. Seems like serious work to me, even if Beck is an entertainer.
It's idiots like Clarence who believed Obama in the first place after absolutely knowing the anti-American crowd he associates himself with.
It's so-called journelist like this who do not deserve to have one word of theirs read by a single person. The willfull ignorance these elitist garner is sickining when it comes to pushing their politicians.
Until we get back to shame, it's only going to get worse!
Page isn't conceding much .... after all, with the video, Hannity had Obama dead-cold on the point at issue.
Clarence, when she stumbles home bow-legged at 3:00AM in the morning, do you still think she was running from Hannity?
Fox Outs Obama! Reveals A Huge Flaw In The Obama Administration!
The writer is crying in his cereal having to write this column.
Right, since the intent of that division was to make you the recipients of power. That certainly makes sense.
F 'ing moron....
I have come to the conclusion that people with Harvard degrees will consistently demonstrate a lack of the basic reasoning skills demonstrated by (for example) plumbers and vets.
i know several who are Harvard grads.
Usually smart at something but dumb at most.
Yeah...Page is part of the DC, salon establishment. When he is supporting Hannity on anything, you know the folks pulling the strings for The Messiah have made a serious mistake.
Rahm should have checked this move out with the WaPo first. Saw Sally Quinn-Bradlee on O’Reilly...what the heck is SHE doing on THAT show??? Quinn said this move is just STUPID.
That’s a serious put-down. When the POST tells you NO, then it’s your base talking to you.
Dumb move Rahm.
Ah, but Clarence typically is of the mindset: why let the facts get in the way of a good opinion.
The second leg is that Clarence Page would like us to infer from reading this article that the objection to the formation of an enemies list is that it tends to break down bipartisanship, that it tends to break down comity.
This is absurd and it is a transparent effort (the only transparent thing that I can think of that a Liberal has done in the last 10 months) to shield Obama from an indictment of the truly un-American assault on free speech of which this is but a latest example committed by this administration.
What Obama is doing is not wrong because it threatens a renewal of an era of good feelings which is only possible because of the transcendent genius of Barack Obama, it is wrong because it is brutal, because it is a threat to our constitutional liberties, because it is, in short, un-American.
There I have said it: it is un-American .
This is an affront to civilized government which cannot be swept under the rug and dismissed as something akin to a breach of good etiquette. This is an assault on democracy.
The problem for Clarence Page is that Hannity and Beck and the rest of the have a pesky habit of playing videos which exposes Obama and his henchmen with their own words uttered in front of our eyes. It becomes more and more difficult for the Clarence Pages of the world to dismiss Hannity and Limbaugh as demagogues when the visual evidence demonstrate out of the mouths of Obama and his henchmen that it is they who are demagogues. To avoid acknowledging this truth, Page attempts to redefine this totalitarian power grab as a lapse of etiquette.
Oh, come on...this is from Clarence Page for crying out loud. Where’s the barf alert?
OUTS FOX???? Excuse me but — ROFLOLOL —
The Marxist are really scared the GRASSROOT SILENT MAJORITY is waking UP!
This is good -— this is really good.
WAKE UP ALL REAL AMERICANS 2010 is around the corner. Get those voter registrations started, educate your neighborhoods, your communities, even the Churches. We have the truth on our side. SOCIALISM DOES NOT WORK IN A FREE SOCIETY.
“A deeper problem is what the flap reveals about Team Obama, which seems to be more comfortable with campaigning than governing. I’m not happy about that.”
Welcome to the reservation, Clarence! Many of us here noted Bammy’s total lack of leadership experience and ability about 15 months or so ago. What took you so bleeping long, fool?
