Skip to comments.Obama Blames Media ‘Preferred By Republican Constituencies’ For Unfriendliness In D.C.
Posted on 01/14/2013 12:44:50 PM PST by Nachum
During a Monday press conference in the White House, President Barack Obama was asked about his seeming lack of interest in socialization with other members of the political establishment in Washington. Obama said that, while he is a friendly person, it takes two to socialize and Republicans are generally not interested in being seen with him. He blamed media that is preferred by Republican constituencies for creating an environment in which a Republican politician seen with Obama has to fear a primary fight in their next election.
President Obama said he does socialize with members of Congress from the other party on a regular basis and they have a good time when they do interact on a casual basis.
That doesnt prevent them from going onto the floor of the House and, you know, blasting me for being a big spending socialist, Obama said to laughs from the assembled reporters.
The reason that, in many cases, Congress votes the way they do, or talks the way they talk, or takes the positions in negotiations that they take doesnt have to do with me, it has to do with imperatives they feel in terms of their own politics, Obama continued. Theyre worried about their district. Theyre worried about whats going on back home.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Limbaugh’s fault! /sarc
Gee....the BARACK can’t handle criticism from Fox? P@ssy.
As for friendly Republicans, he can always bring over the crying crybaby Boner or Juan McLame to appease him on whatever he wants to do.
At least the bastard finally admits who he is.....
Maybe the folks back home don’t like their member of Congress being photographed with the anti-christ.
Whenever I see Obama it’s like looking at the face of the devil..can’t stand a little criticism from Fox..awwwwwwwwwwwww poor baby, someone give that Commie jackass a binky so that he can have something to suck already
Only one name comes to mind, Saul Alinsky.
The shiftless no account Low Information Voter reelected Obama to keep the welfare goodies coming, no more and no less...his trying to make some mandate out of it is damned to failure...
Vampires can't be photographed.
Dear Leader is on a roll, today...full on Alinsky - not holding back or even sending his usual surrogates to *pick his targets and freeze them, ridicule/poloraize them*, etc.
Yeah -—spoken with all the faux-confidence of a faux-dictator, who will never have an appreciation that he’s describing himself and not his Republican adversaries.
This is an extremely hard knot to disentangle, but (and probably BECAUSE) it’s been going on for decades.
We finally have a Chief Executive who has NO compunctions
on spending the “political capital” he thinks his “mandate” has won him, even when that “capital” involves nothing but increasingly , harrowingly catastrophic debt.
Hey Obama, ever give any consideration to the fact that these people actually represent their district and the concerns of the people in their district? Ever consider that they should worry about what's going on back home?
Really, what a complete rube. He is so utterly walled off from reality by the coddling, corrupt MSM that he simply does not truly understand America or Americans!
Gee whiz Barry....many of those same Republican media have been supporting you on your Eligibility fight....don’t be throwing them under the bus...or Presidential Limousine
WTF? Saul Alinsky rule.. “Always blame the opponent for that which you yourself are guilty of”
Yeah, Barracks a friendly guy, just ask the guys in that special club he belonged to in Chicago, I hear they were really close and friendly there!
He's self-absorbed, grumpy, petty, and I would imagine a lousy conversationalist - unless you want to talk about him and how other people treat him.
I'll bet even Biden does his best to avoid socializing with him, even though Biden does find Obama clean and articulate, for a black guy.
This was one of his most breath-takingly hate-filled public appearances yet.
He’s whipping up a vurtual blood-lust frenzy against Republicans, who for the most part are about the most harmless, mild-mannered, timid bunch of losers known to mankind, and I had the feeling that if he felt he could get away with it, he’d announce that he was suspending Congressional proceedings and placing all GOP members under arrest. Or maybe he’d just tell his peeps to storm the House and kill them all.
On second thought, maybe he’s just holding off until after the next immaculation.
Eventually this I’m always right, nothing is my fault sociopathic BS is going to wear thin and be ridiculed by avg citizens. I just hope it happens while there is
still have enough of the country to recover. Mark my words this POS is going to crash by going too far.
Maybe the Republicans just don’t want to get the stench of socialism on themselves?
God forgive me, I hate this whining SOB.
Oh the visual....he loved that bathhouse in Chicago!
God forbid we disagree with El Presidente.
“Republicans are generally not interested in being seen with him”....duh?
Go piss up a rope, Obongo!
If you’re going after the 2nd Amendment, you might as well attack the 1st too.
My guess is none. If not, very close to none.
But Obama can count on the media not pointing out inconvenient facts.
BLAME.. BLAME.. BLAME.. Obozo sounds like a broken record with a bad groove.
Never happen. The average citizen does not have the intelligence to to get in out of the rain. The media will continue to tell them obama is their lord and savior and all the problems are the Republican’s fault. And if the Republicans would only stop hindering obama, he would straighten out the Country’s problems fourthright. Your “average citizen” , a/k/a , parasite, traitor, and other terms too vile to print are who put obama in office and who will keep him in office for the foreseeable future.

Perhaps, but look at what happened to Mussolini. Initially adored by the people and press, much more so than Obastard. Eventually the people realized he was a blustering buffoon and took care of him. Lets hope history repeats itself.
The only place I have heard the negative comments that lead me to believe that Obama has contempt for this country is from Obama himself. He was the one who told Hispanic voters to go to to polls to punish. He was the one who told voters in Springfield, Ohio to get Revenge at the polls.
I do not listen to Limbaugh, fox news, etc. I hear these thing with my own ears and do not rely upon anyone else to tell me how to interpret what Obama himself has said. (”You did not build that!) It’s like I’m forever linked to a habitual liar, like Tommy Flanigan.
