Krauthammer Takes on Entire 'Inside Washington' Panel -- Again, Over Attacks on Fox News
Newsbusters ^ | October 2, 2010 | Jeff Poor

Think President Barack Obama has thin skin? How could one not, after the attacks on media personalities like Rush Limbaugh or his on-the-record comments about the liberal blogs and Fox News?

On PBS’s Oct. 2 broadcast of “Inside Washington,” NPR’s Nina Totenberg pointed out the left-wing blogosphere has been critical of Obama, yet she chalked it up as just being “whiny.” “Inside Washington” panelist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer responded, and pointed out the president’s “thin skin,” in the wake of his remarks about his cable channel in a recent Rolling Stone interview.

“You would think that the presidency is slightly higher than the left blogosphere, but it is not, and that is what the problems,” Krauthammer said. “The president as an unbelievably thin skin, left or right. His obsession with Fox is a good example of that.”

When the rest of the media sheds it’s penchant for giving anal exams to conservative and h**d j*bs to liberals, then maybe the conservatives will deign to give them interviews again.

Meanwhile, the liberal media will respond by giving a TV show to Levi Johnson as their childish little response.

This sort of liberal nonsense that is such a hallmark of this program is the reason that I quit watching years ago. These sanctimonious elites think that they can just stick their noses up in the air and haughtily demand that we meekly accept their views simply because they are clearly smarter than everyone else. It makes you wonder if these geniuses have noticed that almost every liberal program and policy of the past 75 years has proven to be an unmitigated disaster?

Charles should have responded:

“Every other broadcast and cable news network has unquestioningly carried Obama’s water and campaigned for his entire agenda, without criticism.”
“AND if you object to that characterization, then you’re obligated to provide ONE instance, in the the past two years, as evidence.”

This seems to be a regular theme with this panel – ganging up on the lone conservative and often attacking the Fox News Channel or other conservative media outlets like talk radio.

Yeah - a liberal's idea of a 'fair fight' is 4 or 5 to one, they're the bullies - the haters. They project their dark shadow's onto the rest of us...

Obama is so thin-skinned that he is TRANSPARENT.

The Kraut can take on three liberals with half his brain tied behind his back just to make it fair.

Well, I could not care less about his racial features, but you’re right about those ears. Mine were huge when I was a kid, but they seem less so now.

I remember Nina Totenburg, she was one of the people who tried to high tech lynch Clarence Thomas back in the early ‘90’s ! I listened to NPR one recently and I couldn’t stand it ! The East Coast elitist views dripping with condescension. What pisses me off is we pay for this “privilege” !

NPR; Another outfit that needs de-funding until we can kill it completely. The very idea of a govt sponsored propaganda arm is anathema to a Republic.

Yes he is plus he is such an egotist and narcist he will emotionally unravel as the going gets tougher. Rather than moving to the center (left of center that is), he has moved farther to the derranged left, if not beyond it. This guy is going to blow, when he does he will try to take the country down quickly. We need be on guard for that eventuality.

A word of caution, never underestimate your enemy. This guy and his backers and conspirators managed to topple a formidable political machine on his march to the top. That guy and his advisors are now the same ones they were in 2008, so do not underestimate them, either for their ability, their tenacity, or their beliefs in they are right. Nothing is harder to fight then a committed maniac so our battle is not going to be a walk over. We need to keep up the pressure by taunting, saying no, and whittling down his power base in the Congress. When the tide turns against him evidenced by a veto over turn (not going to happen anytime soon unfortunately), that is when he blows.

You made my work easy, bert. You’re a good “straight-man”.

Thanks.

There’s a good tagline in there somewhere.
