Barack Obama’s ’60 Minutes’ Interview Has Me Screaming at My TV Again
The Other McCain ^ | 12 Dec 2011 | Robert Stacy McCain

Today on Morning Joe, they were playing clips of Steve Kroft’s 60 Minutes interview with President Obama, and I literally started screaming. There is only so much of this bulls–t I can endure without talking back to my TV:

-Snip-

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Yeah, no, I understand. But I think that they like the ideas that we put forward. I mean, the interesting thing is the majority of Republicans actually think we should have a balanced approach to deficit reduction, including tax increases for the wealthy. The majority of Republicans do think that we should make investments in roads and bridges and improving our airports and investing in basic research and medical research. So if you take my name out of it and just look at the ideas that we’ve been presenting, these are common sense, mainstream ideas that

-Snip-

THAT WE CAN’T AFFORD! YOU ALREADY BLEW A TRILLION DOLLARS ON THIS STIMULUS CRAP AND WHAT DID IT GET US, HUH? WHERE’S THE ****ING RECOVERY? THE DEFICIT’S OUT OF CONTROL! WE DON’T HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY FOR THIS CRAP! SHUT THE HELL UP ABOUT ‘COMMON SENSE’!

Obamanomics is simply ignorance as the basis of policy. The more you know, the less you like it, and his only hope of re-election is to promulgate counterfactual ideas and persuade voters that they must choose between two lies: His dishonest characterizations of his own policies and his dishonest characterizations of Republican policies.

I hope he fails, because my blood-pressure can’t take another four years of listening to this guy lie.

60 Minutes must’ve been nuts to run an entire show with this fool.

I keep searching the internet for it, I’d gladly pay for it, I’d install it immediately. But alas I cannot find a voice recognition program that would MUTE the TV when OBAMA speaks. Such a shame in this high tech world that I have to PHYSICALLY reach for the “clicker” and then make a second physical move of pressing the MUTE button. One of the reasons I turn to “old movies” is I so can relax and not have to worry about all the physical activity of pushing the mute button. Its so relaxing.

I really like the concept of a voice recognition device to mute Obama and his minion. If it is not possible to silence his voice, I amuse myself by imaging that the noxious sounds emitting from his mouth as belches. One of my many nicknames for Obama is the Belchmaster.

While having lunch with my wife yesterday I said to her we are not watching 60 minutes, even by accident, tonight. She asked why and I said, because OASSH..E is on with square head in what will be a pre christmas propaganda ad hawking his many failures which he will style as successful. Furthermore, I spent all I intend to spend this Christmas and do not need to be buying a new TV.

I know what you mean. I was watching the football game on Fox and switched over to see if the game on CBS was over. There was the lying COMMUNIST telling Steve Croft that he could have saved the economy if the stimulus would have been twice as big. I almost lost my 61” TV over that one.

When you consider the fact that we have a communist like obama in office who blames ATM machines for joblessness, does anyone wonder why we are so f’ed up?

60 minutes can have some interesting reporting, so I usually see what is going on. Last night they had zero for two segments, so 2/3 the show was fast forwarded. Only good thing: no more Andy Rooney, may he rest in peace.

Obama doesn’t stay on my TV long enough to be screamed at.

I do find myself yelling at the radio on occasion though.

When Comcast bought NBC Universal, I thought perhaps some common business sense would cause them to try and balance out their political rhetoric on MSNBC to increase ratings, but for some reason they seem to have doubled down on it and they continue to sink. Does anybody have a rational explanation for this apparent “death wish”?

Until Obama came along, I never understood why people would be tempted to shoot their own TV sets.

But now, the truth is apparent. Obama is ALWAYS on TV, somewhere. HE NEVER SHUTS UP. He tells the same lies over, and over and OVER in the same snotty, sarcastic, dismissive tone that says to the audience: "If you don't agree with me, then OBVIOUSLY you're stupid or else, greedy." And whatever he is yammering on about - it's someone else's fault, and not his responsibility.

He calls spending "investment". He calls income "wealth". He creates armies of straw men and then knocks them down with bellicose blasts of bullsh!t.

And then he looks you in the eye with his own cold brown orbs and tells you that "change is hard", and that he and his collectivist cronies (who all went to Harvard) know just what to do and what be doing it right now, if it weren't for those dastardly Republicans, who are presumably having money fights while sitting naked amidst their bags of ill-gotten gold, while poor Tom Joad and his family shiver pitifully in the cold.

Welcome to the 1930s. In more ways than one...

On the good side; no one really watches 60 Minutes anymore except for lock step liberals. So, he was only preaching to a small part of his own choir.

I expect you'll see RNC ads making the same points. Obama is toast.

I stopped watching 60 Minutes when they did an Enron segment about a pipeline in India in 1996. When they mentioned a “White House connection” they showed File Footage of George Bush. Who was NOT president in 1996.

That neat invention uses the text track for closed captioning, giving you 30 seconds of silence when the name of choice is mentioned. Thus you can shut off discussion of Obama, but not necessarily obama himself. More development work is needed.

People who have to be told again and again and again in the fall & winter that they've turned into a late running football game and that their weekly prayer session will begin shortly.

They are that freaking stupid.

Well that fellow with the MUTING device was “close”. Thank you for the link, very interesting. Now if it would just recognize Obama’s voice and then the software would mute the TV.

Heh. That's precisely how Bill Buckley once described John Kenneth Galbraith. It's a perfectly apt description for Obama, who enthusiastically refutes propositions that no one has asserted.

The problem for him is: if you play with fire long enough, something you didn't intend to immolate will go up in flames, and perhaps you with it.

Thanks for the note, we’ve restored to your original excerpt.

Using -snip- instead of the ellipses makes it clearer.

Mea culpa.
