Skip to comments.Obama Snubs Media Again: 'Clear Out the Press So We Can Take Some Questions'
Posted on 02/25/2013 1:37:01 PM PST by Nachum
If it mattered, the dismissive way Obama treats the media coupled with his lack of transparency would be troubling. But it doesn't matter. Even if the president was as transparent as glass, the media would still cover up anything that might politically damage him. So the fact that Obama treats the media like the lackeys they are, is actually very amusing and all kinds of satisfying.
The media's been whining about "access" for 10 days now and as a result, today, Obama pretty much laughed in their collective faces with this:
What I want to do is clear out the press so we can take some questions.
As the Washington Post's Erik Wemple points out, just two weeks ago, Obama bragged about heading the most transparent administration ever. Today, though, Obama inflicts a little more Battered Media Syndrome on his lapdogs by treating them like the stenography pool in front of.. the whole wide world.
Let me repeat: If the media wants respect, instead of whining about their precious one's dismissively abusive treatment of them, the media instead would demand respect from Obama by holding him accountable for things like lying about and demagoguing the sequester, Libya, the economy
In other words, actually do their job as guardians of the country instead of Palace Guards.

That’s how the lackeys should be treated. He knows what door mats they have been throughout his political career, and they don’t deserve any r-e-s-p-e-c-t.

That is exactly how I see it. Exactly.
As he becomes even bolder, his own carelessness will cause his own demise. He is becoming similar to a drugged up pimp/rapper.
I believe you've just expounded a HUGE TRUTH.
Time and again throughout history we've seen this play out to be the dominant truth.
Sometimes he looks drugged.
At some point useful idiots cease to be useful.
This is how I am seeing his demise. And He (ha-ha) will see that demise sooner rather than later.
I know a lot of us on FR are down....but, this guy IS being exposed....and even his true believers are starting to worry.
Well, that’s just my take. But I feel it in my bones. He’s going DOWN.
What can we expect from someone who told others to “argue with your neighbors - get in their faces” - this is an arrogant small-minded little man, who like a defiant child, will do just the opposite of what others want of him for spite - maybe someday even the press will wake up to what he really is......
