Obama Instructs Journalists On How To Report His Positions (video)
realclearpolitics.com ^ | April 3, 2012

Posted on 04/03/2012 6:05:27 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

"This bears on your reporting," President Obama said to journalists. "I think that there is oftentimes the impulse to suggest that if the two parties are disagreeing then they're equally at fault and the truth lies somewhere in the middle. And an equivalence is presented which I think reinforces peoples' cynicism about Washington in general. This is not one of those situations where there's an equivalency."

"As all of you are doing your reporting, I think it's important to remember that the positions that I am taking now on the budget and a host of other issues. if we had been having this discussion 20 years ago or even 15 years ago … would've been considered squarely centrist positions," Obama said a few moments later.

Classic Lennin/Marxism.

Control media through threats.
Threaten courts.
Threaten riots through division.

Hitler did the same thing.

Obama lies.
He needs to GROW UP and become a man, not a boy who’s still resentful that both of his parents abandoned him.
Next story.

The arrogant one wants to tell everybody how to do their job. He is having a hard time dealing with the fact that he sucks as a president and his policies are a disaster.

However, DumBO’s policies have clearly put the government on the Marxist side of socialism. Meaning he would have been a centrist in the Soviet Union.

Well, to paraphrase Chris Mathews, Chris once said at a time when Obama was having problems, I forget which problem. But anyway, at that time, Mathews said that Obama should give “us” our marching orders, meaning people in the liberal media were looking to Obama to get instruction on what issues to push, and how to push them in the media.

Any pretense of non-partisan news reporting or analysis seems to be gone. Now Obama will explicitly tell the minions in the media how to report on his presidency.

I hear that Pravda is still around from the old Soviet days. I bet Pravda is a more reliable source of news than our own liberal media.

Obama is a sociopathic narcissist.

They don't grow up.

They just get crazier until they are stopped.

Sometimes, it is after Berlin is in flames.

I’ve read the English version of Pravda. To be blunt, it is more reliable...

Everybody else is playing politics, but not him.
The conceit of this guy is staggering.

The pathetic fact is that most of the pretend journalists in the Democratic Party controlled media will do exactly what Jug Ears the pretend President wants.

If you closely study his “presence” (how he non-verbally comes across), previously when things were not going his way and lately he projects low self assurance. Sure he outwardly projects “I’m the boss” air, but I think he truly knows this schrade is not working well enough to get re-elected.

It also seems he sees that some very powerful players shaping the field against he is favor, but is powerless to do anything to prevent it. At the minumum, I hope he gets the worst case of bleeding ulcers imaginable.

He's such an ass-clown
...Republicans who won't even talk about raising revenue [Raising Taxes] or who insist on giving tax breaks to people who don't need them [we decide how much of your money you get to keep]

What an arrogant S.O.B. he is. Every speech , every word out of his mouth he always has to be on the attack. There always needs to be a villain in his narrative.

Always the Alinsky-ite, here we see him using a couple of rules
Rule #11 If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside.

Rule #13 Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

Sounds like that Chauncey Garder guy (was that his name?) always staring at the TV no matter who’s talking.

You see that in nursing homes a lot.

That is one scary picture painted of this guy ....

and I believe every word of it.

I’ll say this, if Republicans don’t get their sh*t together and vote for whoever is the nominee –

and I mean WHOEVER is the nominee,

then it will be another four years of Barack Obama running this country into the f***ing dirt and that’s what we deserve.

Even if the rest of your post is fiction, and I don't believe it is, this last bit is 1000% true. At this point even Ron Paul is a step up. Everything you describe just has that ring of truth to it. Just look at who he surrounds himself with, not liberals, not even radicals but Revolutionaries. We can't survive 4 more years and I don't even know if we will survive this first term.

And the MSM will fall in ranks, and march lock step, to his cadence and commands.

One thing Obama said is true. For some GOP progressives, there is a competition between fascism (private public partnership) and Obama’s Marxism. Many of the fascist ideas come out of GOP think tanks. They think they are being clever in foiling the Marxist moves the Dems take with fascist counter proposals. However, the Marxists look at adopting Repubican failed fascist ideas as a step in their direction. When fascism fails they say - “Republican failed now let’s do it our way!”

No where does the option of constitutional freedom exist in this competition. That is the real third way for America. Screw the fascists; screw the marxists...let the country’s people be free.

Dictator Baby-Doc Barack dictates to whoever will listen. This time it is the Liberal Agenda Media.

BTW, what a relief for the LAM, as now they don’t have to report facts.

One more question: Is "http://newsflavor.com" an "approved source" to post from, or will it be deleted for political correctness?
