Obama: Reporters tell me my ideas are 'great'
The Hill ^ | 7/25/13 | Daniel Strauss

Posted on 07/25/2013 9:33:28 AM PDT by Nachum

President Obama said reporters praise his economic proposals as “great” and tell him they are “all good ideas.”

Obama made the remarks in a speech Wednesday in Galesburg, Ill., focused on the economy.

The address didn’t include any new proposals on the economy, and Republicans criticized Obama for giving an address that was more of the same.

But Obama said the news media often praises his ideas.

"It’s interesting, in the run-up to this speech, a lot of reporters say that, well, Mr. President, these are all good ideas, but some of you’ve said before; some of them sound great, but you can't get those through Congress. Republicans won’t agree with you," Obama said.

Obama argued some Republicans privately agree with a lot of his ideas.

“I know because they’ve said so. But they worry they’ll face swift political retaliation for cooperating with me,” he said.

Well then! We should hurry up and pass them, then we can find out what's in them!

Ahhh, yes.

Reporters.

Every last one of them an omniscient, omnipotent, infallible, inerrant expert on all things.

Just ask 'em.

They'll tell you all about it.

In a supercilious, condescending fake british accent.

That’s because the Obamadork and reporters have similar IQs...none of which require more than two digits.

For once, he may be telling the truth. There are many Obama sympathizers in the GOP. That’s for sure.

Why does the article say it’s written by Strauss and not John Semmens?

“...for cooperating with me,”

That says alot, huh? Do you think he believes he's much bigger than a president? He has taken power and those who are supposed to stop him have watched, even “cooperated”. You know who you are, Mr. McCain, among others.

"We love you long time. Boom-boom four years." - The American press.

I don't know how this moron in the Whitehouse processes information inside his head? His image and story is what you should find when you google search "The Emporers New Clothes".

President Obama said reporters praise his economic proposals as “great” and tell him they are “all good ideas.”

Including, no doubt, that towering genius reporterette who asked her guest, Bill Nye, the fake science guy, if an asteroid's close approach to the earth was related to "climate change."

Even Bill Nye was chagrined at the abject stupidity of the reporterette. But at least Nye knew that she was completely stupid. Obama, on the other hand, consistently makes the mistake of thinking that the press in this day and age is relatively intelligent, which couldn't be further from the truth nowadays.





























There may have been a day where your average member of the press had an IQ above 60, but that day, of course, is long, long past.

Marxists must always blame others, even to the point of demonizing the opposition. That way they can ensure the useful idiots still support their failed policies. Plus, if you can successfully demonize the opposition, then you can eventually actually eliminate them while the sheeple applaude.

The Washington media is bought with cocktail parties, catered meals, luxury travel, posh accomodations, wealth, and flattery when done as scripted.

Nothing comes before those things.

JOE WALSH

“Life’s Been Good”

I have a mansion, forget the price
Ain’t never been there, they tell me it’s nice
I live in hotels, tear out the walls
I have accountants pay for it all

They say I’m crazy but I have a good time
I’m just looking for clues at the scene of the crime
Life’s been good to me so far

My Maserati does one-eighty-five
I lost my license, now I don’t drive
I have a limo, ride in the back
I lock the doors in case I’m attacked

I make hit records, my fans they can’t wait
They write me letters, tell me I’m great
So I got me an office, gold records on the wall
Just leave a message, maybe I’ll call

Lucky I’m sane after all I’ve been through
(Everybody say I’m cool) (He’s cool)
I can’t complain but sometimes I still do
Life’s been good to me so far

I go to parties, sometimes until four
It’s hard to leave when you can’t find the door
It’s tough to handle this fortune and fame
Everybody’s so different, I haven’t changed

They say I’m lazy but it takes all my time
(Everybody say oh, yeah) (Oh, yeah)
I keep on going, guess I’ll never know why
Life’s been good to me so far
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Wonder why? Any who actually practice journalism get ostracized and kicked off the Press Corp or as was the case with James Rosen, spied on.

I’ve always thought that until you realized how little you know, you aren’t really intelligent O hasn’t reached this point; he’s like the little kid whose parents don’t tell him he’s an insufferable little brat.

When a reporter designs a space shuttle then I might agree with them, until then, they’re only supposed to report the story, not become part of it. Narcissism is alive and well.

You mean like David Brooks waxing eloquent over the crease in TheOne's pants...

That first encounter is still vivid in Brooks’s mind. “I remember distinctly an image of–we were sitting on his couches, and I was looking at his pant leg and his perfectly creased pant,” Brooks says, “and I’m thinking, a) he’s going to be president and b) he’ll be a very good president.”

The one thing this President does well is ....

obama pits one group against the other AND with this comment, each other!

Sad to say it works!! He is a pro at it, all you have to do is look at the last election.
