Obama’s afraid they will get some education over at FOX.

That’s Obama’s biggest threat. Education of the Constitution, freedom and patriotism. Where he lacks.

Pathetic crybabies.

They can’t compete against Fox News so just run away from it.

Cable news only?

So it’s okay to listen to the network news propaganda?

"President Obama advises fellow Democratic colleagues to turn away from the medium of cable TV news. "

If this "warning" has any effect, it will underscore and prove what mind-numbed robots obama followers are; anyone with any common sense and character would ask, "What is it that he doesn't want us to hear on cable news?".

So, we're really getting to "Mr. ThinSkin"...we're showing the world how he does his "tricks", exposing his little secrets, and that just won't do, not at all..../sarc.

It goes back to all of the remarks he has been making about Republicans, you know, the "we extend a hand and they show us the fist" crack.

The Congressional Republicans he recently met with are not actually not who his talking about...he's talking about Rush, Glenn, Sean, FOX News, et al.

The obamaTATOR has "truth-o-phobia"...like claustrophobia, the truth surrounds and chokes him; it closes in on him.

We are seeing the morphing of obama the messiah, into obama the weasel. "Mr. Plastic" is melting under the spotlight of truth.

For this show, we don't even need popcorn, it's so entertaining we don't want to even stop to eat.

And as to staying away from ‘blogs’ Mr. Obama himself is a KosKid:

“Numerous political figures use Daily Kos to publish frequent or occasional content, including consultants, candidates, and sitting members of Congress. Prominent posters include:

Pres. Obama Tells Dems to 'Turn Off' Cable News, Blogs

Most Americans are already "turned off" to the propaganda the state-owned media is force-feeding us and we have already elected to source our news elsewhere.

Obama is telling democrats to do something redundant. His voters are already in the dark about his intentions and their ramifications upon them and his political colleagues are meeting and passing bills in the darkness of night.

I suppose being uniformed of the intentions of this administration and those hired to act within it is precisely what Obama desires of all Americans and those elected as their representatives.

Come November, the lights will go on and voters will be "turned on" and energized, including business owners, the jobless, and all those Fox News viewers fed up to here with the agenda still planned to be inflicted upon us in days to come (amnesty, cap and trade, global warming).

Hey NumbNuts, the topic outside of the "echo chamber" is politics. Apparently you're not cognizant of that fact! Maybe you should remove your own cranium from the echo chamber you've inserted it into.

That's because folks do...frankly...care about the process, majorities and minorities and we know just as much, if not more, than you! "The folks" are not stupid, no matter how much you wish we were and no matter how much you talk down to us!
And as far as "what's being delivered for me", I know what's being delivered to me...not a damn thing except perpetual servitude and tax slavery for generations to the almighty fed.god.gov.

Right. The viewers on MSNBC and CNN hang on every word Obama utters, so they’ll no doubt follow his “guidance” and turn off their sets.

Meanwhile Fox News and conservative radio continue to grow....

Say what you want; he’s no genius, our esteemed President.

Wait a sec - the President of the United States tells citizens not to watch certain TV programming? That smells like censorship by the federal governmasnt to me.

It’s clear that this doofus we have in the Offal Orifice doesn’t have a clue or care about abuse of power.

Yeah, all you dummies. Pay no attention to what Obama is doing to your liberty and your property. Instead, immerse yourself in the sex-saturated offerings of the networks who are his allies. After all, to the Left, sex is the opiate of the masses.
