Skip to comments.Is Obama Losing His Media Allies Over The Sequester?
Posted on 02/28/2013 6:57:33 AM PST by IBD editorial writer
Politics: Here's a pretty good sign that President Obama is losing the sequester fight: Even his best friends in the press are starting to chafe at the desperate and deceptive warnings coming from him and his administration.
At one of his countless anti-sequester events, Obama warned that the budget cuts will "gut critical investments," "weaken America's economic recovery" and "weaken our military readiness." He said tens of thousands of parents will scramble to find child care, and hundreds of thousands will "lose access to primary care and preventive care." [snip]
Even the media appear incredibly to be growing skeptical of the administration's horrifying predictions.
Case in point is CNN's Candy Crowley.

In a word,
Obama was convinced by the election and the tax cut deal that he cannot lose any of these fights, and now that he is re-elected the MSM may be getting bored with propping him-up as the black liberal flawless messiah. Maybe he will be surprised this time.
The lsm media is just a little tiffed that their access to obama has been limited lately. this was just a little reminder that they are in bed together and he shouldn’t stray too far. They made him what he is today and can break him just as easily. They’ll be behind him again soon.
In two HELL NO!
Our ever campaigning, and “present voting” president, has , after four years of failure not been able to get the training wheels off his miserable record of NON LEADING. When will he begin to lead, instead of instigate as a community organizer. When will he “grow up”?.... I doubt that it will ever happen.
So far, Woodward is the only one I’ve heard challenging anything.
“Obama was convinced by the election and the tax cut deal that he cannot lose any of these fights”
That’s why he’s the Prefident*
*From online dictionary;
Pref”i*dent\, a. [Cf. L. praefidens overconfident. See Pre-, and Confident.] Trusting beforehand; hence, overconfident. [Obs.] —Baxter.
Wait until Barry gives the order to shut down meat inspection, the TSA, national parks and interstate highways. They’ll be back on board faster than you can say “Progressive Orgasm”.
Not a chance. He is a democrat.
He got massive Ocare passed in 2010 with the Dem congress, no small feat.
But why should he try to work with the GOP now ??/
Demonizing them has worked great up to now (at least).
Hell, many clueless Republicans even thought the GOP was beating O last year.
When he loses a few he will change, not until.
As long as there are Obama bedfellows like Ezra Klein, Andrea Mitchell, Robin Roberts, Joe Scarborough, Soledad o’Brian, the NYTimes, NBC, etc., then Obama will be able to do whatever he wants without political consequence.
Equally unfortunate is the fact that Republicans have absolutely NO leadership whatsoever.
The media has lost a lot of credibility protecting obama. All of this so-called “friction” over access and threats from the WH is all for show.
87.3% of the governments figures are made up on the spot. /sarc
Obama is strutting around like a Pea-cock telling audiences that unless the GOP raises taxes all these bad things will happen, that they have to compromise and cave to his demands to raise taxes or ordinary Americans will suffer.
I got two Democrats here (neither white) who told me they are sure that Obama will beat Republicans again on this just like the tax extension fight.
One of the two who is really ga-ga about O repeats the MSNBC daily points by word and he predicted that the GOP will cave by Sunday. He also said this will create a civil war in the GOP, all stuff that MSNBC is saying word for word almost(that is why I watch it)
Of course by Monday he will change his story I bet :”Oh the Republicans will pay at the polls for defying our President. Everyone agrees with him.”
The left wing media will never stop being the Ministry of Propaganda for ghetto thug Barry Hussein Soetoro. They may have a brief spat, but soon they will go back to licking his boots.
As long as Obama performs his main job of giving people government money to watch TV the media will always love him.
40,000 teachers? No way. Only the ghetto trash believes that.
I think the MSM doesn’t like being bullied...
I’m wondering how many were true allies and how many were allies because of their cowardice. Now that Woodward is speaking out. I’m hoping all the threats come out of the woodwork.
