Posted on 01/27/2013 12:44:38 PM PST by Libloather
The president also conceded that [t]he same dynamic happens on the Democratic side, but in his mind, the difference is just that the more left-leaning media outlets recognize that compromise is not a dirty word.
He claimed that leaders like myselfand I include Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in thisare willing to buck the more absolutist-wing elements in our party to try to get stuff done, as opposed to the opposing party which he views as obstructionist.
[T]hats one of the biggest problems weve got in how folks report about Washington right now, because I think journalists rightly value the appearance of impartiality and objectivity, Obama said. And so the default position for reporting is to say, A plague on both their houses. On almost every issue, its, Well, Democrats and Republicans cant agreeas opposed to looking at why is it that they cant agree. Who exactly is preventing us from agreeing?

“Who exactly is preventing us from agreeing?” -Obama
Well, gee Mr Big Ears, look in the mirror and go read your Communist Manifesto again whiel you and Reggie Love do your “yoga”.
His spoiled brat issues come to light with these statements.
Who will rid me of this troublesome priest?
Why do I need to agree to a piece of kenyan trash liar who is intent on destroying the country? FUBO

Coming from the my way or the highway group, this is rich
how dare more than one viewpoint exist in this country!
I seem to recall the left smugly saying ‘Dissent is Patriotic’ when Dubya was President.
We throw it back at them, and KenyaBoy can’t undersand it.

No kidding. I just can’t tell if he’s crazy or a Big Lie guy.
Yup! This ass hat never grew up. He lived with Muslims and communists so that his mind is so warped that there is no conservative value but just playing kids games. Remember "I won". What the hell was that if not a pure child like remark.
Yes, it’s only the rat leftists like Obama who should have freedom of speech.
THEY are the extremist elements in his party. Almost no one was more extreme when Obama was a US Senator. Same with Reid and Pelosi.
What a thinskinned TOOL. He’s got 98% of the TV, print and internet media slobbering over him like he’s the 2nd coming. But that’s not enough. He always sees fit to take a swipe at Rush..and the increasingly irrelevant Fox News. Chicken..Chicken....Chicken. AS IF.
Go back to the view and keep believeing you’re that legend they think you are, Miserable Commie poseur.
obama is a sore winner. The more the Repub’s kowtow to this behavior, the more they will get.
I lament Obama’s influence on public debate. He is the most negative, divisive, sarcastic President we have had. Obama makes Richard Nixon look warm and engaging.
does he know that he just made them stronger?
Oh lookie, Limbaugh’s ratings are about to take another spike.
Rush thanks you.
Nope. Proof positive the boy's a real dumbass.
He’s whining about the moderates at FOX? LOL!
Some virtually beg Congressional haters to subpoena them to testify before committees.
Tens of millions of Americans will stand foursquare behind each and every modern day Patriot.
Go ahead Obama, Reid, Pelosi, et al., make our day.
Let's get it over with.
Maybe what Obama needs is a "Commission to Examine and Neuter Sensibility from Our Republic" to make the voices he doesn't like "shut up."
It's so much easier to be a dictator when you don't have to deal with critics, after all.
You got 51% of the vote, you pretentious jagoff.
I grew up just out side of Chicago where Obama politically emerged from
and I can tell you unequivocally, anything eminating from Chicago operates via the BIG LIE premise.
I have had my differences with Rush from time to time on minor points, but can say without reservation that the bamster isn’t fit to lick dog feces from Rush’s shoes.
It should make for an interesting opening monologue from Rush on Monday.
Ah, ‘personalize and demonize’ or however Alinsky states it. Obama’s at it again. I suspect that Rush is an enemy he’ll wish he’d never engaged. I bet El Rushbo’s chortling even now as he plans next week’s show.
What a jackass.
The Obama Doctrine -
Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you. Push. Complain about you.
If he is so centrist, why no votes for his budgets?
“You got 51% of the vote...”
...by buying votes from the Takers and the Sluts with our tax money. Nothing to be bragging about.
Rush’s reaction will be: “Spell that L-I-M-B-A-U-G-H”.
I wish they would stop calling him “President”. I think “dictator” fits better.
Dear Bleater is really saying:
Why the f*&^ can’t this country be more like North Korea? Or Africa?
I wonder if Dear Leader is really under the delusion that Faux News is not in the tank for the Rats. Suspect it’s just a ruse.
Fox News Breaking: “Barack Obama may not be the most incredible person ever to walk the face of the earth. Hear both sides at 9:00”
Barack: “Wahhhhhhhh . . .”
Whats mine is mine, whats yours is negotiable.
And, unfortunately for us, the RINO's agree.
Even if he had all the media sewed up like he does with abccbsnbcpbscnnmsnbc and the newspapers, he still would have to blow out a lot of people’s brains to get total silence. The Marxists have a road they travel to mass murder every time.
The dems are running scared of the NRA, too. They are actually now outright denouncing the constitution of the US. Ultimately, the globalists know this is what stops them in the US.
The CEO of GE let slip a few weeks ago that the Chi-coms have a superior ruling system to us. He said they are effecient and can get things done. Now NBC has a special on ending the constituiton. Genernals Dempsey and Petraeous both denounced free speech around the fake video show and Petraeous has denounced the second amendment.
The elitists really are going to move against the constitution during the coming phase of globalization. The DOD and DHS has named people who are for the constituiton, domestic terrorists.
We have seen the radicals and heard their treason before...I have never seen them in such power before. I was never really afraid of them before.
Here’s the problem....more than fifty percent of the public is watching Fox News. When they do the ratings....the regular news channels (MSNBC, ABC, CNN, CBS, etc)....are stuck with low ratings, and thus low commericial advertising dollars. Everyone will still use them...but they pull out the ratings and comment that most people are watching Fox. So Fox is hurting all of them in the profit category.
Fox knows this. They’ve lined up the evening news and the only one that can compete against them....is the Comedy Channel, and History Channel’s Amish Mafia.
So they are complaining about this to the President, and hinting that this whole mess is going to trigger some downsizing in the news media if things don’t change.
Makes sense..but have you EVER heard a public official name a particular station or radio personality by name? Time after time? He is SUCH a little man.
