Obama blamed troubles on Fox News, book says
politico ^ | 3/19/12 | MACKENZIE WEINGER |

Posted on 03/19/2012 10:56:32 AM PDT by Nachum

President Barack Obama blamed Fox News for his political woes in a private meeting with labor leaders in 2010, saying he was “losing white males” who tune into the cable outlet and “hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7,” according to journalist David Corn’s new book, “Showdown.”

In “Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Fought Back Against Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party” — which hits bookstores on Tuesday — the Washington bureau chief for Mother Jones chronicles the White House from the 2010 midterm elections to the start of the 2012 campaign. The book focuses on key moments of Obama’s presidency, such as Osama bin Laden’s assassination, the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the Arab Spring, the debt ceiling crisis, and the president’s dealings with Congress.

“hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7”

I watch Fox News 24/7 (background noise) and have never heard them say anything about Obama being a Muslim. What a crock!

Shallow little twerp. It's so infuriating to be told constantly how intelligent and eloquent he is, when it's so clear that he's a mental and intellectual lightweight.

If Obama doesn't want to be confused with Islam, try 1) being nicer to Jews and Christians, at least believing Jews and Christians 2) don't go bowing and scraping and apologizing in terrorist-supporting countries.

The viewership for cable news is not that large.

Even ‘spectacular’ cable news broadcasts can barely get 7 million viewers. The more popular ones average a couple of million. Most average a few hundred-thousand.

It isn’t FoxNews that has made Obama’s numbers fall; it’s Obama.

With Obama, every ill is someone else’s fault.

That kind of character trait probably existed when Obama was in grade school, secondary school, college, the IL Senate, the US Senate. We know, as President, he blames everyone else.

He has created his own problems these last 3+ years.

Do these intellectually inferior people see color in every issue?

What a bunch of mental midgets.

I like the man but absolutely detest (nowhere near as strong a term as I would like to use) everything about his policies.

Yes, when Holder makes obvious color/race based decisions, color/race come to mind but that would be their fault not mine.

I honestly thought his election, while bad for the country, would have been good for race relations but because the entire administration is so racist they have poured napalm on a few burning embers of racism until it is now an out of control 10 alarm fire.

Race, race, race, color, color, color everyday, every week has made me damn sick a tired of people who have nothing to offer but race cards. Suck it up. Get a job. Stop being a parasite. Do this and you just might find yourself in a better position in life and little time to blame everything on race.

...Corn writes that after the midterm elections, Obama told labor leaders in December 2010 that he held Fox partly responsible for him “losing white males.” …Fed by Fox News, they hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7, and it begins to seep in

…The Republicans have been at this for 40 years. They have new resources, but the strategy is old,” Corn recounted Obama as saying.

Bet David Corn doesn't sell too many of his books. Seems to me he used to be a regular "lib balance" commentator on FOX. I seem to remember him as one of the more inane libs FOX used.

And yes, I know, inane lib is redundant.

Well, that may not entirely be true...Corn's book is bound to sell more than 3000 copies.

Perhaps 5000?

“Anti-Christian” is probably a lot more accurate than “closet Muslim”.

He may not be an adherent to any religion,
but he hates Christianity more than anything else.

*******

Excuse after excuse. Blame after blame.

With each passing day, it looks more and more that President Learning-On-The-Job Obama and his advisers are in way over their heads and have no idea what they are doing.

So I say that it is time to give somebody else a chance on election day Nov. 2012 to be President of the United States.

As I see it, a new president couldn't do any worse than Obama is doing right now.

Yes. With Obama and his staff, it is excuse after excuse, and blame after blame. Sad. Very sad.

Don’t worry, Tom Hanks will join “the failure at the box office” dirt bags. He’s toast!!! By the way, the Obama video is also a but, big time!!! Have you seen the latest film revenue flow for George Clooney and Meryl Streep, lousy. Ms. Streep got an “Oscar” for “The Iron Lady”, but the film was a bust at the USA box office!!! Want another one, Oprah Winfrey cancels her darling, Rosie O’Donnell (no viewers) from her “OWN” network. Actually, the “OWN” network is failing and costing Oprah millions in losses. That’s what Obama will do for you!!! But.....Obama, the flim/flam man is really not to blame!!!

All Oprah has to do is look in the mirror to see the real fool and idiot!!! She is done, toast, burned toast, da nada, finis!!!! Stupid, is a more apt description of her!!!
