Skip to comments.Obama Blames Conservative Media, Limbaugh and Fox News For Failures...Again

Earlier this week in the New Yorker, President Obama suggested his approval ratings are down because America is full of racists (the same racists who elected him, twice). Now, bonus excerpts from the same article by David Remnick show President Obama blaming his failures on Fox News while accusing the network, conservative media and Rush Limbaugh of turning him into a "caricature."
The president also complained that conservative media had created a "caricature" of him divorced from "reality" that made rallying voters from those areas particularly difficult.
"The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that Im not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but Im somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things that weve put in place worked better than people might think," Obama said.
Barack Obama is a practical person interested in solving problems? Is that why he told Congress last week that he's "got a pen" and executive power he isn't afraid to use it if they don't do what he wants? A reminder:
With his newly announced overhaul of National Security Agency surveillance activities, President Obama has once again hit a nerve with members of Congress on both sides of the aisle.
The president, as he often does when facing a nettlesome problem, used his executive powers to implement changes.
Obama signaled at a recent Cabinet meeting, though, that more executive actions are likely ahead.
"I've got a pen and I've got a phone -- and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward," Obama said. He suggested he could use his phone to try and bring people together.
New poll numbers released this week by Quinnipiac show the majority of the country views Obama as untrustworthy and dishonest. Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and conservative media didn't lie to millions of Americans by telling them they could keep their health insurance plans under Obamacare. In fact, all of these media outlets warned of the opposite years before the Obamacare exchanges were launched on October 1, 2013. Over to you, Neil Cavuto:
Obama is demonstrating typical long term marijuana user/abuser behaviors . Obfuscation and denial , evasiveness and a warped sense of moral higher-than-thou-ness . Salted with liberal doses of narcissism and self infatuation. He’s a stoned Pharisee if there ever was one .
Welp .. at least he’s no longer blaming Booosh.
My dear Barry, you are a LIVING caricature.
LOL. Exactly so!
I expect more from a city councilman in a small town, much less the chief magistrate of history’s most powerful nation.
No, Mr. President, the issue is that while you and those around you may be good at politics, you and those around you could not successfully run a lemonade stand, and some of the people who once supported you are finally beginning to realize that.
The Obama Hit List will soon be revealed. Lets get rid of this horrible man who thinks he is president.
Awful, awful man. I can’t stand to even see him on TV , let alone listen to him.
OOOOoo those evil Republicans./s
I’m afraid we’re going to see the arrest of Rush, Sean, Beck, etc. in the near future.
Only because the statute of limitations ran out. . . .
If the community organizer is stupid enough for that, it starts the Revolution. . . . .
Is King Hussein too stupid to figure out that this latest rant doesn’t help his case?
perhaps if obammy hadn’t been passed in life as a quota boy and actually had to work for his status he wouldn’t be such a worthless a hole.
Sort of like being given a nobel without having to do anything cept smile nice, speak articulately and be clean.
Stupidity has nothing to do with it. It has always been about pure unadulterated ARROGANCE.
I saw it right away in his Democrap 2004 Convention speech. I have always said his arrogance will be his only undoing.
You are absolutely correct. He displays many of the symptoms of an substance abuser.
protest the state of the union, shut off your tv
